Laser Vaginal Tightening and Revitalisation with MonaLisa Touch
Best results from Vaginal Laser treatments using MonaLisa Touch technology often require 3 sessions spaced a month apart; with occasional maintenance treatments.
“MonaLisa Touch is an ideal treatment for patients suffering from Vulvovaginal Atrophy (VVA), also referred to as Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause (GSM). Symptoms of GSM include: vaginal dryness, vulvar dryness, vaginal itching, painful intercourse (dyspareunia) and painful urination (dysuria).
The MonaLisa Touch Procedure involves three short treatments at approximately 6 week intervals. There is minimal downtime and minimal side effects, no anesthesia, and symptom relief after only ONE treatment; but annual follow up treatments are recommended once a year. If you are a suitable candidate for treatment, each of the three initial treatments will take approx. 5 to 10 minutes.

We have found the MonaLisa Touch laser to be very effective for vaginal tightening and vaginal rejuvenation treatment, treating a range of common post-childbirth, pre and post-menopausal gynaecological issues.
Sometimes called “women’s troubles” or “female problems,” these can include vaginal dryness, vaginal atrophy or laxity, urge or stress incontinence, painful sexual intercourse (Dyspareunia) and recurring urinary tract infections.

What are the MonaLisa Touch laser treatment benefits? MonaLisa Touch may improve dryness, laxity and even vaginal itchiness.
Patients treated with the MonaLisa Touch have reported an improvement in sexual relations and better orgasms as a result of improved vaginal tightness and increased vaginal lubrication.
Specific benefits of this vaginal laser treatment may include:
- increased tissue quality and elasticity
- increased blood flow to the vagina
- tightening of the vaginal canal
- skin rejuvenation of ageing, damaged, dry and or irritated vaginal area tissues
- potential assistance in normalising the pH of the vagina
- potential reduction in recurrent vaginal infections for many women
- restoration of a more ‘normal’ or revitalised vaginal environment
- improved tissue quality which also helps increase natural skin lubrication to promote more comfortable sexual intercourse
In suitable patients, the MonaLisa can effectively treat stress/urge incontinence, painful sexual intercourse (dyspareunia), vaginal atrophy, recurrent infections and itchiness, burning and/or dryness associated with menopause. It does not replace hormone replacement therapies or surgically installed mechanical supports for all women, but where appropriate offers a new less invasive and highly effective vaginal rejuvenation option.

How does the MonaLisa Touch Laser (Vagina Tightening and Rejuvenation) work?
MonaLisa Touch uses a non-surgical fractional laser system, very similar to the laser treatments that have long been available for facial rejuvenation. The laser works by optically splitting a laser beam into a series of very small dots. These dots of beam are aimed at the inside wall of the vagina or vaginal canal. The laser pulses for less than a tenth-of-a-second, during which the intensity of the laser is carefully varied by a computer to match the characteristics of the existing vaginal wall.
At the point of contact, the laser dot removes a tiny area of tissue. This creates a pinhole around the same size as the diameter of a human hair (minuscule). The pinhole stimulates the body to repair itself, which stimulates cells to create new, healthy tissue at the site of the dot and flesh immediately surrounding it.
The laser also works to heat the area between dots, stimulating the activity of specialised cells that create elastin and collagen – the building blocks of healthy tissue.
This process involves the same concepts as many facial rejuvenation procedures in terms of skin healing and collagen stimulation.
Results of MonaLisa Touch Vaginal Laser Treatments
Vagina surgery with MonaLisa leaves rejuvenated, elastic healthy tissue with minimal disruption. Improved blood flow and tissue tone reduces pain, improves sexual and urinary function and may increase sexual gratification.
Will MonaLisa Touch work for you – are you suitable?
It is important to understand that not all women are suitable for the MonaLisa Touch. Each patient must have a medical consultation to discuss and determine their suitability prior to undergoing treatment.
Patients suffering from significant prolapse (Grade 2 or above) may not be suitable as MonaLisa Touch is an ablative laser treatment. Please call (03) 8849 1400 to contact us if you have any specific questions around our vagina rejuvenation treatment.
MonaLisa Touch is not recommended for patients suffering from Lichen Sclerosis.
Although the MonaLisa Touch can offer similar results to hormone replacement therapy, some patients may still need to seek further treatment, surgery or medication to alleviate their symptoms.
Cosmetic Surgery for Women and Men was one of the first plastic surgery practices in Australia to have a MonaLisa Touch Laser.
A patient trial of more than 60 women has demonstrated remarkable results – some described as “life-changing” – please ask to see some relevant results of the trial at your appointment with us.
Preparation for your MonaLisa Touch Treatment
All patients must meet with their practitioner for a Consultation prior to getting MonaLisa treatments. Prior to undergoing your MonaLisa treatment, you will need to have had a PAP smear and examination in the last 12 months showing no abnormalities. Please call or contact us if you have any questions about organising your pre-treatment PAP smear.
Who performs the treatment?
We have a female practitioner available to perform your MonaLisa Touch laser treatments.
Our Clinic “go to” Medical Professional for female health, post-pregnancy health and menopausal health is GP Dr Loretto Maxwell.
All practitioners operating the MonaLisa Touch laser have extensive experience in women’s health and have received thorough and specialised training in the MonaLisa Touch intra-vaginal laser system.
How long does vaginal treatment for incontinence, dryness or vaginal tightening take?
The treatment itself takes no longer than 15 minutes and is often done in 5 to 10 minutes (your initial history and consultation is typically at least 45 minutes long, so you must first have a consultation with your selected practitioner). The results are often seen in a short period of time, but optimal noticeable results usually occur after a series of evenly-spaced treatments (at least 3 are typically needed for optimal results).
Procedure details for laser treatments for vaginal concerns
At the start of your treatment(s), a swab will be inserted into your vagina to dry out the inside as much as possible prior to the insertion of the laser. This is the slightly uncomfortable part of the procedure.
The laser probe is then inserted into the vagina. You will feel a relatively low grade vibration inside the vaginal canal which is virtually painless for most women. This process lasts for around 5 minutes depending on your comfort levels, and the probe is then removed. Your treatment is complete and you will require three treatments about six weeks apart, and then one treatment annually as maintenance, or as required if you experience recurring symptoms that benefit from MonaLisa Touch treatment.
Downtime – how long will I take to recover?
As the MonaLisa Touch treatment is almost painless. You can return to your normal daily activities following your Treatments. However, strenuous exercise and very hot baths are not advised. You must also refrain from vaginal intercourse for 5 days after treatment in order to allow the vaginal canal surface to heal properly.
How many treatments are required?
Patient trials here and overseas have concluded that the best results (in most cases) are generally achieved from three MonaLisa treatments over 8 to 12 weeks.
- Most patients see a significant improvement after their first treatment
- Patients are encouraged to continue with the subsequent MonaLisa sessions as this ensures the most effective, longer-lasting results
- Results of MonaLisa Touch treatments are generally excellent
- Some patients have described the treatment as life-changing
- The extent of improvement varies between individual patients.
How long do MonaLisa Touch treatment results last?
Many of the symptoms treated by the MonaLisa Touch are associated with low hormone levels brought on by menopause. A continued lack of oestrogen production can lead to some symptoms returning down the track. Under the advice of our doctors, patients can have repeated vaginal rejuvenation treatments if their symptoms return.
How much does MonaLisa Touch vaginal laser treatment cost?
MonaLisa Touch is not currently covered by either Medicare or most Insurance.
Pricing will depend on the number of sessions recommended in your treatment plan. Your treatment plan will be catered to your clinical needs after a Doctor consultation and exam.
- It is advised that patients adhere to their suggested treatment plan even if they are satisfied with the improvement after the first treatment.
- Repeated treatment at specified intervals allows longer lasting improvement.
- Women interested in treatment are encouraged to contact Cosmetic Surgery For Women and Men to receive an accurate price guide and further information.
A standard MonaLisa Laser treatment plan consists of a preliminary medical consultation and initial three to four sessions over 8 to 16 weeks plus a “booster treatment” around 12 months.
- A MonaLisa Touch Consultation, assessment and exam costs $150 – We then offer treatment packages of THREE treatments, which you can pay for individually or as a package.
