When a woman’s estrogen declines, it can lead to issues such as vaginal drying and irritation (also known as vaginal atrophy) which can cause pain during intercourse and other uncomfortable symptoms which may even start to negatively affect your quality of life. But a relatively new laser treatment provides many women with relief. The vaginal laser treatment, Mona Lisa Touch, uses laser technology to help treat vaginal atrophy and a wide range of other vaginal issues women might be experiencing. If you’re in the Mother City and are curious about trying out this revolutionary new treatment you’ll be thrilled to hear that Cape Town’s Chelsea Clinic and Spa is now offering the cost-effective ‘Mona Lisa’ vaginal laser therapy treatment for women!

Chelsea Clinic and Spa is currently the only place in the Western Cape offering this unique laser therapy that’s suitable for all women – it’s the beginning of a new era in vaginal rejuvenation. The ‘Mona Lisa’ brings you the latest laser technology to treat symptoms such as vaginal laxity, discomfort , and incontinence in a totally painless way. This technology uses a 360o laser beam instead of a typical 90o beam resulting in maximum effectiveness, giving women a cheaper, less painful alternative to vaginal rejuvenation surgery.

The ‘Mona Lisa’ is a super quick, safe, 5-minute treatment with immediate results that improve drastically after each treatment. It helps to tone, reshape and regulate vaginal atrophy in just 3 treatments over a 12-week period. Over this time period, clients will start to see noticeable results in the treated area as well as improved elasticity and stimulated collagen – bonus! But how does it work? The treatment works by piercing tiny holes in the vaginal lining which result in new blood flow, healthy tissue growth, as well as a thicker and stronger vaginal wall – the process basically, “remodels” the vagina with healthier tissue. The treatment shouldn’t be too painful as numbing cream is applied to the area before the treatment to avoid any pain or discomfort for the client.

The Mona Lisa Touch treatment is ideal for women who are suffering from vaginal atrophy after menopause, breast or ovarian cancer as well as for women who can’t take or don’t want to take vaginal estrogen — or who haven’t responded to it or a similar therapy. It can also used to treat urinary incontinence and urgency in women. In today’s society, feminine health and well being is a worldwide trend so the ‘Mona Lisa’ is the perfect way to increase confidence in a safe, healthy manner and has the ability to change lives.

The Mona Lisa Touch Vaginal Rejuvenation treatment at Chelsea Clinic and Spa is priced at R4,800 per session or R12,400 for a course of 3 Sessions. To find out more about this treatment visit the Chelsea Spa website
