Vaginal Atrophy, or vaginal ageing, can have both a physical and emotional impact on women. It often occurs during and after menopause but can also affect younger women.
What Is vaginal atrophy?
As women age, their bodies begin to produce less oestrogen. This can cause the walls of the vagina to become thinner, drier, and less elastic. As a result, many women with vaginal atrophy experience uncomfortable or painful urinary symptoms and painful intercourse.
Vaginal atrophy not only affects pre-menopausal and menopausal women, but also those who have undergone chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or some forms of hormonal treatments.

How can Mona Lisa Touch
Laser treatment help?
Mona Lisa Touch is a non-surgical treatment for vaginal atrophy that has been used in Australia since 2013 by select gynaecologists, urogynecologists and menopause doctors. It is a revolutionary treatment that creates significant improvements for women affected by the symptoms of vaginal atrophy, which include:
- Vaginal itching and burning
- Vaginal dryness
- Loss of lubrication
- Vaginal laxity (loss of elasticity)
- Painful sexual intercourse
How does it work?
By gently acting on tissue of the vaginal mucosa, the laser stimulates the production of collagen, improving the functionality of the treated area and restoring the proper trophic balance to the mucous membrane.
What to expect
Mona Lisa Touch is a low-level procedure and the treatment course is usually made up of three x 3-minute laser sessions, each six weeks apart. No anaesthesia or painkillers are required, and patients do not experience any downtime. The therapy is designed to regenerate vaginal tissue and restore blood supply, promoting rehydration and recovery of normal function.
Compared to other current treatment options that simply treat the symptoms of vaginal atrophy, such as creams or Hormone Replacement Therapy, Mona Lisa Touch laser treatment directly addresses the causes, resulting in long-term results for patients.
