The new laser therapy for the care of your vaginal health
Vaginal atrophy is a very common condition, especially among women in menopause (either natural or induced) or during post-partum. The vulvovaginal region is very sensitive to oestrogen decline, with a series of consequences that impact directly on the quality of a woman’s life: weakness and laxity of the vaginal mucosa, dryness, itching and burning, pain during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia).
MonaLisa Touch® is a functional vaginal rejuvenation treatment based on a special CO2 laser, specifically created for the vagina. MonaLisa Touch® prevents and resolves oestrogen drops in the vaginal tissue (typically occurring during menopause or after breast cancer treatment) by re-activating the production of new collagen and re-establishing the conditions that the vaginal mucosa once had.
MonaLisa Touch® is now the most effective non-surgical and non-pharmacological solution for preventing and treating vaginal atrophy and its after-effects, which many women suffer from during menopause and after childbirth.

How does it work?
The CO2 laser gently acts on the vaginal walls through a special scanner, creating indistinguishable micro-lesions that are required for triggering the production of new collagen and reorganizing and thickening the vaginal mucosa.
A tissue regeneration process lasting numerous weeks is triggered, but stimulation occurs immediately and significant improvements can be seen even after the first treatment.
The mucosa tissue thus becomes more nourished and hydrated and the epithelium becomes thicker, more toned (vaginal tightening) and elastic. It also re-establishes the correct vaginal pH, which helps maintain its natural protective barrier and reduces the risk of infection.
One simple treatment lasting only a few minutes, without pain, side effects or recovery time, can give the tissue the tone and elasticity it once had, with positive effects on one’s quality of life and personal relationships.
