Let’s face it. Sex is good for you in so many ways. Other than the obvious benefits, it also relieves stress, lowers blood pressure and boosts self esteem…plus it’s great exercise!
Why let a drop in estrogen due to menopause determine whether or not you’re still having a happy healthy sex life?
MonaLisa Touch™ performed at the G Spa is a painless, 10 minute treatment with no downtime, no anesthesia, no side effects and gives amazing results!
So say good-bye to messy creams and hormones and say hello to you and MonaLisa Touch™.
MonaLisa Touch™ is an innovative laser procedure that safely delivers CO2 laser energy to the vaginal wall to promote vaginal mucosal revitalization and a return to vaginal health.
One of the most significant advancements in the treatment of vaginal health is now available to treat the symptoms of painful, tender, vaginal tissues….all in a matter of minutes, without anesthesia, safely in the office, without downtime….resulting in remarkable improvement in symptoms due to thinning and laxity of the vaginal walls.
This breakthrough for women is what Viagra was for men in the late 1990’s…..a remarkable answer to an often embarrassing, annoying and perplexing problem that had no easy or safe solutions, until NOW!!
MonaLisa Touch™ promotes the recovery of vaginal health in a safe and painless way, through methods similar to fractional lasers applied to the face to treat wrinkles. The laser’s effect on vaginal tissue stimulates the natural production of collagen, restores the pH balance, and improves blood flow.
MonaLisa Touch™ is natural, safe and non-invasive. It restores tone to tissues and increases blood flow and lubrication. In one word, it naturally normalizes the physiology of the vaginal walls to help you regain your self-confidence and rediscover sexual enjoyment with your partner!
MonaLisa Touch™ is a revolutionary treatment creating lasting improvements for women affected by the symptoms of vaginal wall thinning, vaginal atrophy, vaginal aging or genitourinary syndrome of menopause without the use of drugs or surgery.
These symptoms include:
• Vaginal itching and burning
• Dryness and loss of lubrication
• Urinary incontinence and urinary urgency
• Vaginal pain
• Painful vaginal intercourse
• Recurrent urinary tract infections
• Superficial mild prolapse
• Loose vaginal walls
Unfortunately you are not alone! 45% of menopausal women have one or more of these symptoms, but now you do not have to suffer in silence.
Published research has demonstrated that a series of three, 5-minute treatments can achieve significant improvements, even after just one treatment. A yearly maintenance treatment is recommended.

MonaLisa Touch™ is a vaginal rejuvenation treatment based on a special CO2 fractional laser, specifically created by scientists in Tuscany, Italy for this particular application.
This non-invasive laser procedure is performed in a medical office; it does not involve incisions or sutures and it requires under five minutes for every session.
The treatment DOES NOT usually require anesthesia; however, if the vaginal opening is especially sensitive or tight, we can apply a topical anesthetic.
Results can be noticed after the first session; normally we recommend a full cycle of 3 sessions 45-60 days apart. However, the number of sessions can change according to the level of vaginal atrophy to be treated. A yearly maintenance session is recommended.
The laser’s stimulation action on collagen improves the state of the mucosa that lines the vaginal walls and promotes rehydration and functional recovery of the vaginal tissues.
Thanks to its action on factors that determine dryness, fragility and loss of mucosal elasticity, this regenerating treatment can eliminate troublesome itching, irritation and pain, which become particularly acute during intercourse. As a result, most of the treated patients report a substantial improvement in their quality of life and in their sexual life.
The MonaLisa Touch™ even treats cases of mild vaginal looseness, caused by loss of mucosal tone (but not significant prolapse due to muscle or soft tissue laxity).
This stimulation and rejuvenation process involves growth of cells and tissues and takes a few weeks to be completed. Results will be more noticeable approximately 4-6 weeks after the end of the treatment.
Risks for patients treated with Monalisa Touch™ are minimal. Few women report temporary side effects of slight redness or swelling. Any discomfort usually disappears after one or two days.
Generally intercourse may be resumed after 24-48 hours.

MonaLisa Touch™ works by stimulating the body’s own regenerative processes to create more hydrated and healthy cells and to improve the vascularity of the vaginal mucosa. This has a direct effect on the integrity and elasticity of the vaginal wall and increases the acidity of the vaginal environment to more normal levels. In general terms MonaLisa Touch™ improves the function and health of the vagina.
The treatment activates fibroblasts of the vaginal mucosa which promotes collagen synthesis. The permeability of the tissues and the transfer of water and nutrients from the capillaries are also improved, allowing normal water content of the vaginal mucosa which restore the vaginal wall strength and blood supply. In as little as 30 days after the treatment the regeneration of new tissue in the vaginal walls builds a naturally stronger structure and the protective mucosa recovers volume, hydration and elasticity.
The reduction of estrogen production in the ovaries after menopause is the most recognized cause of vaginal atrophy. This results in a reduction of collagen in the vaginal mucosa and thinning of the epithelium, which makes the vagina more susceptible to trauma during intercourse. A concomitant reduction in blood flow leads to a decrease in vaginal secretions often leading to a dry vagina. This in turn decreases the lactobacilli bacteria of the vagina which results in an increased pH level, facilitating the growth of pathogens including bacteria. This can result in an unpleasant vaginal odor and discharge These symptoms can have a negative effect on your general well-being and, in many cases place stress on your intimate relationships.
Treatment of vaginal atrophy can start before the occurrence of vaginal changes, in the peri-menopause, and even post-partum, when estrogen levels are low or fluctuating.
Currently the most-common treatment of vaginal atrophy requires an ongoing application of hormone replacement products directly into the vagina, in the form of estrogen creams, melting pills or a ring, or taking an oral pill with potential side effects (Osphema). For a variety of reasons some women are not able to use these products, become uncomfortable with this process, suffer side effects, or are irregular with their use and eventually stop.
Without an effective solution these women are forced to alter their lifestyle to cope with the symptoms.
Yes. Fractional CO2 laser has been commonly used in the medical field for decades. MonaLisa Touch™ is a CO2 laser that serves as a non-surgical alternative to vaginal tightening that gently stimulates the natural collagen found within the vaginal walls. Subsequently there is no surgery and no recovery time involved.
Treatment is indicated in the postpartum period, in the peri-menopause, and post-menopause.
If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure. Some common reasons you may want to consider vaginal rejuvenation include:
The number of treatments depends on your individual circumstance, however, some patients, may only require one treatment to see sufficient results. In the case of stress urinary incontinence, the treatment may need to be repeated for a total of 3 or 4 times.
The Mona Lisa Touch™ works to counteract the effects of Vaginal Atrophy with a simple 10-minute treatment, utilizing a highly sophisticated vaginal probe to deliver microscopic heat beams that gently and safely stimulate the production of collagen underneath the vaginal skin. This in turn, promotes a proliferation of the cells and restores the vaginal wall strength and blood supply.
Most women report no side effects whatsoever. A few women report slight localized discomfort at the opening following the laser treatment and during the first few days after the session. Many have reported to have resumed their normal routine after 1-3 days.
There are some minimal risks. The treatment is performed in the office. Few women report temporary side effects, slight redness or swelling: some discomfort that usually disappears after one or two days of rest.
The MonaLisa Touch™ procedure offers significant advantages over other available current treatment options as it addresses the issues that cause Vaginal Atrophy, rather than masking the symptoms. Many women feel doubtful and uncertain with regards to traditional treatment (surgical or pharmacological), which is often invasive and poses some high risks of significant side effects. Patients who opt for the MonaLisa Touch™ not only benefit from a gentle and non-surgical alternative, but also from the longer-lasting relief it provides.
The term “vaginal rejuvenation” is confusing because it is often used to include surgically altering the size and shape of the external genitalia (labia minora and majora), more appropriately called labiaplasty. Surgical vaginal rejuvenation usually means cutting away excess tissue and making the vagina tighter with suturing (anterior/posterior colporraphy or A and P Repair). These are generally performed in operating rooms, not in the office.
The intelligence of women has often been underestimated, and for some reason there are gynecologists out there that think women cannot learn to tell the difference between their outside genitalia (labia) and their inside (vagina).
Please don’t confuse the two and don’t just give up and call it all vee-jay-jay. lol.
As of January, 2015, MonaLisa Touch™ is the only laser that has significant published research in peer-reviewed journals to back up its efficacy, as well as as the clinical experience of its use in multiple countries, including Australia.
Currently over 30,000 women worldwide have been treated.
There are very few women who should avoid this procedure, but that would include pregnant women, within 3 months postpartum, if there is active infection, such as herpes or yeast, a history of local radiation therapy to the area, or a history of vaginal surgery with mesh placement.
Many women and their partners report a “tighter sensation” after MonaLisa Touch™ treatments. The MonaLisa Touch™ does improve cases of mild vaginal looseness, caused by loss of mucosal tone, but not significant prolapse due to muscle or soft tissue laxity.
Ah, this is the 64 million dollar question. But my answer is a resounding “very likely.” The reasoning is this: It is a well established fact that libido for a female is directly related to comfort during sex. This is a no-brainer really…if something hurts we generally stop doing it. But if we can make it STOP hurting, and well, even go a step further and enhance lubrication and make it actually pleasurable, then it stands to reason that libido will improve.
You can resume all activities after 24 hours. Most women find that they can comfortably resume sexual intercourse within 24-48 hours. Remarkably some women who were totally unable to have intercourse prior to the procedure were able to comfortably do so one week later!
