MonaLisa Touch Vaginal Laser for Vaginal Atrophy


MonaLisa TouchTM - The new laser treatment for vaginal aging and dryness.

If you are having the symptoms commonly related to vaginal atrophy, you can now obtain a new balance through the recovery of genital physiology and relief from symptoms you suffer from every day.

MonaLisa TouchTM promotes the recovery of genital mucosa balance in a safe and painless way, through methods similar to those used to slow down face skin ageing.

The laser's effect on vaginal mucosa tissue stimulates the production of collagen, improves functionality of the treated area, and restores proper blood flow.

MonaLisa Touch is natural, safe and mini-invasive, it restores tone to tissues and increases blood flow and lubrication. In one word, it naturally normalises the physiology of the vaginal wall


Female Genital Disorders

Don't worry, you are certainly not the only one with those annoying symptoms, such as genital itching, irritation, poor vaginal lubrication, vaginal dryness and irritation, and even pain during intercourse (dyspareunia).

These are actually quite common symptoms in women of different ages and are often related to estrogen deficiency and to vaginal atrophy.

These symptoms, which tend to worsen over time, can appear with a drop in estrogen due to menopause (whether physiological, surgically induced or resulting from localised cancer treatment) in addition to temporary symptoms such as hot flushes and night sweats.

The discomfort resulting from these physiological changes associated with alterations of the vaginal mucosa can interfere with the quality of life and affect a relationship, and can cause low sex drive and lack of libido in some older women due to testosterone deficiency.

But what is vaginal atrophy?

Urogenital atrophy occurs following a reduction in the production of estrogen by the ovaries, due to menopause or as a result of the treatment of some gynecologic cancers.

This condition involves gradual thinning of genital epithelial tissues, vaginal and vulva mucosa, which reduces its thickness and becomes more fragile irritable and exposed to trauma.

Loss of cell glycogen (which contribute to vaginal flora balance) and reduced epithelial blood flow are factors that lead to morphological tissue alterations that add up to physiological and functional alterations:

  • vaginal dryness and lack of moisture
  • decreased vaginal discharge
  • increased vaginal pH level, exceeding 5.0 
  • vaginal lactobacilli decrease and increased microbial antagonism
  • inflammation and burning sensation
  • itching and localized vasocongestion
  • leucorrhoea or abnormal vaginal discharge
  • sensitivity of the vaginal walls to friction and mechanical stress
  • leveling of vaginal rugal folds (due to collagen loss and reduced production)

 The symptoms related to atrophy of vaginal mucosa and of the lower urinary tract during sexual intercourse can alter genital sensations or worsen existing symptoms, such as reduced sex drive and lack of orgasm.

Up to not long ago, this was attributed to the inevitable aging process and therapies and treatments to improve vaginal physiology and fight disorders that worsened over time were not widespread.

Today, more and more women turn to medicine to improve the tone and functionality of that particular area. Don't be afraid to ask your doctor, who can guide you through the choice that best meets your requirements, based on self-knowledge, clinical judgement, and personal experience.

A testimonial from one of our MonaLisa Touch patients:


"At 42 years old I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Due to other complications, I had a hysterectomy and oophorectomy.  I really didn't know what to expect other than automatic menopause.  The side effects from tamoxifen and the surgery left me experiencing vaginal atrophy, infections, vaginal dryness, bladder discomfort, and extremely painful intercourse.

After a year of this constant battle and trying vaginal pills and creams that didn't work for me, I had to research other alternatives.  The MonaLisa Touch performed by Dr. Ricarda Benz, has simply changed my life.  She is a compassionate doctor who truly wants to help women.

During the laser procedure, there is very minimal pain, so I didn't have to take medication.

After 3 treatments that are scheduled 6 weeks apart, my symptoms have subsided.
Truly unbelievable!

I'm sharing my story because I know others may be suffering in silence from these exasperating side effects.  There's hope but most of all help, and the MonaLisa Touch may be the solution you're looking for.
