The Mona Lisa Touch® is a quick and safe laser treatment that takes less than 30 minutes to complete. This procedure can help women who experience vaginal laxity, dryness, itching, pain during sex and urinary incontinence. Women usually notice a difference in their symptoms after one to three visits. The benefits of the treatment are significant, and the only aftercare required is avoiding sexual intercourse or penetration for five days after the procedure.
The non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment is a fast and pain-free procedure. It involves applying a local anaesthetic during the process. A small instrument is then inserted into the vagina and turned both clockwise and anti-clockwise simultaneously. This involves using a soft laser to send energy into the vaginal tissue, stimulating the growth of new blood vessels.
The new blood cells created elevate the levels of oestrogen and collagen in the body. It can lead to many health benefits and help repair the vaginal tissue. The entire process usually takes about 30 minutes, after which you can go about your day.
Before the MonaLisa Vaginal Rejuvenation treatment, patients are asked to fill out a questionnaire about sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence. They are also requested to clip their pubic hair to help with the treatment on the outside of the vulva.
During the Mona Lisa Touch® treatment, some patients might feel a slight discomfort while inserting the probe. However, during the vaginal treatment, you may only feel a tingly sensation, and when treating the vulva, most patients describe mild discomfort. Some patients might also hear a slight noise during the procedure. Despite these sensations, most patients tolerate the treatment well, even without numbing cream. On a pain scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is no pain and, 10 is severe pain, most patients score the treatment as ‘2’, indicating that the procedure is generally pain-free and well-tolerated.
The Mona Lisa Touch® treatment, including consultation, consent, and the actual procedure, takes less than 30 minutes.
After the Mona Lisa Touch® treatment, it’s essential to refrain from sexual activity for seven days. It’s recommended to wear loose clothing and avoid using any soap on the treated area for the first 48 hours. You may feel some redness and itching in the treated area for a day or two. It’s okay to apply some Vaseline if needed.
We recommend cleansing the area two to three times a day to prevent any infection.
5 things to remember about treatment:
The Mona Lisa Touch® treatment is not recommended for patients who have a severe prolapse or have had a mesh repair for prolapse. However, some patients have been treated without harm. It’s also not recommended for those who have had radiotherapy, are pregnant, or have had a baby less than three months ago, as the tissues may be fragile.
If you’re interested in combining the Mona Lisa Touch® treatment with PRP treatment to the vagina, your doctor can discuss this with you further.
You might notice an immediate improvement in sexual desire and pleasure. But it usually takes three months to see complete results.
