There’s recently been a breakthrough in treating certain gynaecological concerns and restoring vaginal tissue: the MonaLisa Touch laser treatment.
The MonaLisa Touch is a new non-surgical way to treat vaginal atrophy, as well as achieving a rejuvenating effect by restoring vaginal tissue.
Vaginal atrophy is a common condition that causes symptoms such as incontinence, poor lubrication, itching, dryness and pain during intercourse. It may be a result of declining hormone levels after menopause or from chemotherapy for cancer treatment.
Thanks to advancements in medical science, symptoms of vaginal atrophy can now be treated non-surgically and with minimal, if any, downtime.
The continuing developments in laser technology have seen major advancements in skin enhancement, body contouring and now gynaecology and vaginal rejuvenation and tightening.
Using fractionated laser light, the MonaLisa Touch probe – which is inserted into the vagina – delivers thermal energy into the deeper layers of the vaginal tissue.
This kick-starts the body’s natural processes to increase blood flow and stimulate the formation of collagen, which improves the integrity and elasticity of the genital mucosa. This can be effective in alleviating vaginal pain in those patients experiencing gynaecological problems or vaginal atrophy, or in simply tightening the vaginal walls for a rejuvenating effect.
MonaLisa Touch delivers thermal heating at specific depths in the tissue to achieve an optimum, targeted result. Also, the fractionated effect means there are areas of untouched tissue left between laser columns. This healthy tissue helps promote healing and reduce downtime after treatment.
The treatment is non-surgical and no anaesthesia is required. Often a series of treatments is recommended for best results, however most patients notice a significant improvement after the first procedure.
Whether you’re looking to relieve the symptoms of vaginal atrophy, or seeking a rejuvenating effect, MonaLisa Touch offers a relatively simple solution – backed by clinical research and a history of success in a gynaecological setting.
The MonaLisa Touch will be available at the Cosmetic Medicine Centre from August. For a confidential consultation about this exciting new technology, contact one of our experts today!
