About MonaLisa Touch Clinics
MonaLisa Touch Clinics is a website conceived and developed by a compassionate group of medical practitioners, allied health specialists and other persons interested in helping women who are suffering from the symptoms of vaginal atrophy and urinary incontinence. We are particularly concerned about women who have been induced into menopause at an early age due to cancer related treatments and/or surgery. The adverse physical and psychological impacts on these women can be tremendous.
We saw the need to consolidate an online information repository where women could source relevant data about their condition in privacy and at their convenience. We hope this will become a continually growing and evolving website with the most up-to-date information and real-life experiences: “Knowledge is Power”
We also wanted to provide details of some treatment options, of course, the MonaLisa Touch CO2 laser, which we firmly believe in based upon clinical data and our own experiences. In addition, we have extended this to include a Community Chatroom so women (and men) can share their experiences, provide feedback and primarily, help each other.
The medical practitioners supporting Mona Lisa Touch Clinics all deliver the laser treatment using our facilities at Academy Laser Clinics. We currently have two locations in Western Australia, Perth and Bunbury, plus we intend to expand with a clinic in Sydney and other accessible Australian locations.
Full details of our services and locations can be found on our clinic website
We support a variety of women’s health organisations including Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia, The Hunger Project, Breast Cancer WA and others.
