Close to half of all postmenopausal women will experience some form of vaginal atrophy.
Vaginal atrophy is most common after surgical, medical or even natural menopause after your levels of estrogen begin to decline.
Estrogen is the hormone that keeps your vagina plump, lubricated and elastic so when estrogen levels begin to decline, sex can become painful and much less enjoyable.
Fortunately, there is a vaginal rejuvenation treatment called MonaLisa Touch that is changing all that. Using heat, MonaLisa Touch can revive the vagina and restore moisture levels.
Ideal candidates for MonaLisa Touch
The MonaLisa Touch treatment is ideal in the following situations:
- Intercourse Hurts
Once vaginal atrophy sets in, sex can become far more painful and much less enjoyable. Without proper lubrication, the vagina is more prone to injections and can be generally itchy and uncomfortable.
While over-the-counter lubricants are a good short-term solution, they can be messy and aren’t ideal when spontaneous situations.
MonaLisa Touch uses a CO2 laser to encourage the natural production of lubrication so there won’t be any need for creams and gels going forward.
The treatment doesn’t require any anaesthetic and after one to three treatments, you can start experiencing natural lubrication levels once again. Patients are able to resume any sexual activity three to four days after their session and within a month, your vagina should be completely back to normal.
- Intercourse is No Longer Enjoyable
If your vagina is looser than it once was due to pregnancy or ageing, MonaLisa Touch is an ideal treatment for you. As the treatment encourages more collagen production, your vagina will tighten and become more hydrated and toned.
Since the treatment also stimulates blood flow, sensation and lubrication increases naturally too.
A study showed that over 90% of women who received a MonaLisa Touch treatment reported having a tighter vagina and were able to enjoy sex again.

- You’ve Survived Cancer
Since there are no hormones used during a MonaLisa Touch treatment, it’s ideal for survivors of ovarian, breast, cervical or any type of cancer that could be triggered by hormones. Younger cancer patients may even have menopausal symptoms due to the chemotherapy but this treatment can help.
- You Suffer from Incontinence or Vaginal Infections
Loss of urinary continence is one of the many symptoms experienced by menopausal women. Even a light sneeze can release a stream of urine, which can be incredibly embarrassing. Since this innovative treatment rejuvenates the urogenital structures, it also thickens your mucosal tissue, your pelvic floor muscles strengthen and your urethra tightens which can eliminate incontinence and keep infections at bay.
Countless women are seeking out the MonaLisa Touch treatment because of the amazing results it can produce. Just be sure to consult with a doctor that specialises in vaginal rejuvenation treatments for the best results.
