The Mona Lisa Touch procedure offers significant advantages over current treatment options as it addresses the issues that cause vaginal atrophy rather than simply working on the symptoms. The Mona Lisa Touch creates longer-lasting relief than current treatments and offers a new and effective option for patient groups who were previously not suitable for existing treatments.
How MonaLisa Touch Works To Stimulate Natural Regeneration Of Vaginal Tissue and Structure…
MonaLisa Touch draws on knowledge learned over many years in fields such as Dermatology and Aesthetic medicine to deliver an effective treatment the stimulates fibroblast cells in the skin to promote natural regeneration processes. This stimulates collagen formation underneath the vaginal skin, promotes proliferation of the cells and restoration of blood supply. In as little as 30 days after treatment, there is regeneration of new tissue in the vaginal walls and the protective mucosa recovers volume, hydration, and elasticity.
By restoring the natural pH balance of the vaginal mucosa, and targeting the causes of vaginal atrophy, many of the symptoms such as vaginal dryness, irritation, and fissuring are greatly reduced or disappear – all with virtually no side effects or discomfort.
In addition, improvements in the structure and positioning of the vagina mean that some external surgical procedures such as labiaplasty and vaginaplasty may be avoided in mild to moderate cases.
Painless, No-Downtime Procedure
The MonaLisa Touch is a 5-minute, painless, no-downtime treatment. The only post-treatment advice is to abstain from sexual intercourse for 5 days. A course of treatment requires three, five-minute treatments spaced at monthly intervals.
WHAT IS VAGINAL ATROPHY?
Vaginal atrophy, or vaginal aging, affects in excess of 40 percent of menopausal and post-menopausal women. The walls of the vagina become thinner and the natural elasticity and blood supply is reduced. The protective mucosa of the vagina can lose hydration and thickness causing a loss of lubrication. The changes in the natural pH balance of the internal environment have detrimental effects on the function and health of the vagina.
The symptoms of vaginal atrophy may or may not occur simultaneously and may be felt as:
- Vaginal dryness or itchiness
- Burning sensations and irritation of the vagina
- Fissuring of the opening of the vagina
- Pain during sexual intercourse (Dyspareunia)
- Vaginal pain
In excess of 40 per cent of menopausal and post-menopausal women are affected by vaginal atrophy will experience some or all of the symptoms listed above.
In addition, younger women who have used the Pill for prolonged periods, breastfeeding mothers and women who experienced traumatic delivery and severe perineal repair and scarring may also experience these symptoms.
Around 60 per cent of breast cancer sufferers can also be affected by vaginal atrophy and unfortunately, Hormone Replacement Therapy is not suitable for almost all of these patients meaning that there is no effective treatment for their symptoms.
MonaLisa Touch works by stimulating the body’s own regenerative processes to create more hydrated and healthy cells and to improve the vascularity of the vaginal mucosa. This has a direct effect on the integrity and elasticity of the vaginal wall and increases the acidity of the vaginal environment to more normal levels. In general terms, MonaLisa Touch improves the function and health of the vagina. MonaLisa Touch is proving to be an exciting and effective solution for many women experiencing the symptoms of Vaginal problems.
