MonaLisa Touch is a minimally invasive laser procedure to counteract the effects of gynaecological ageing.
With age, there is loss of vaginal elasticity, lubrication, vascularity, hydration and thinning of the vaginal mucosa. This can lead to itching, heaviness, dryness and pain during intercourse. MonaLisa Touch is indicated to painlessly (usually requiring no anaesthesia) regenerate a component of your vaginal mucosa called collagen. This in turn promotes rehydration and recovery of vaginal tissue function.
The procedure is carried out on an outpatient basis, takes only a few minutes, and is usually performed in a cycle of 4-5 sessions with 45-60 days in between each session. No incision or sutures are required. Results are usually noticed following the first session. As with most invasive procedures, you may experience temporary side-effects such as redness, swelling and discomfort for 1-2 days which subside on their own with adequate rest, and avoidance of heavy exercise and hot baths.
