Be proactive about getting your life back on track
The Women’s Wellness Centre wants to be a part of helping you get your life back on track and that is why we have introduced MonaLisa Touch® laser treatment to our comprehensive service offering.
This treatment is a clinically proven leading laser treatment for vulvovaginal atrophy, i.e. vaginal dryness and symptoms associated with the menopause. It is a safe, painless and hormone free treatment that uses a laser designed specifically for the vagina to help restore the natural collagen and elastin of the vagina, thereby alleviating symptoms.
As many as 80% of women entering menopause are effected by vaginal dryness. Itching, burning, soreness, dryness, irritation, or pain during sexual intercourse are all common. As the vagina is less lubricated the skin can become more delicate, and the lack of moisture means the skin can rub together and cause friction, soreness and in some cases splitting of the skin.

The cause of vaginal dryness is often linked to the reduction in oestrogen which naturally occurs around or after the menopause or following breast cancer treatment. As the level of oestrogen begins to reduce it can cause a range of symptoms, including hot flushes, night sweats, sleep disturbances, mood swings and vaginal dryness.
Many of these symptoms go away after time, however lower oestrogen levels can affect the level of moisture in the vagina long after the menopause unless managed or treated. Women can experience thinning of the skin which leaves the area in and around the vagina more delicate, and the lack of moisture means the skin can rub together and cause friction, soreness and in some cases splitting.
