The Mona Lisa Touch is an exciting new alternative to Hormone Replacement therapy for the treatment of The GenitoUrinary symptoms of the Menopause. The procedure takes just 5 minutes, is generally pain-free, has none of the systemic complications associated with HRT and allows the patient to return to normal activities immediately. Symptoms for which the treatment can be used include include dyspareunia, burning, itchiness, dryness, resulting in a markedly improved quality of life.
The majority of patients will notice an improvement within a few days of just one Mona Lisa treatment, however we do recommend 3 treatments at least a month to 6 weeks apart. We restrict sexual activity for 5 days after treatment however patients are usually able to perform their normal daily duties immediately after treatment.
