Poor vaginal lubrication, vulvar itching, dryness, mild urinary incontinence, heaviness and painful intercourse can occur during pre-menopause or after child birth. The main cause is often atrophic vaginitis: a disease that adversely affects your life and the relationship with your partner.

But there is good news - through painless lasers, you can achieve harmony again and relief from this daily discomfort.

The Mona Lisa Touch treatment can address problems that are often neglected, which often have a significant impact on the quality of life.

How does the treatment work?

MonaLisa Touch treats vaginal atrophy by promoting the recovery of the genital mucosa in a safe, painless way. The effect on vaginal mucosa tissue stimulates the production of collagen, improves functionality of the treated area and restores proper blood flow reversing the effects of vaginal atrophy. Treatment is virtually painless and the procedure lasts less than five minutes.
