Dr Allen was one of the first specialists in Australia to provide a state of the art non-invasive treatment for vaginal rejuvenation treating the symptons of dyspareunia, urinary incontinence, itchiness, burning, dryness, mild prolapse and laxity.
A five-minute, pain-free procedure that has no downtime and is suitable for most women of all ages suffering from the often embarrassing, painful or uncomfortable symptoms of vaginal atrophy is now available from Dr Rod Allen.
This remarkable new procedure provides patients with a noticeable improvement after just one treatment, however a course of three treatments a month apart is recommended. Patients return to their normal daily activities immediately following each treatment.
It is usually most beneficial and often life-changing for women who have had difficult births; have had radiation treatment in the pelvic region or who are in menopause.
Dr Allen uses MonaLisa Touch equipment which was introduced into Australia in January 2013 with more than 2000 treatments performed since. It has been used with great success overseas for a number of years.
It is a low-risk procedure that provides longer-lasting improvements than HRT. It can be used in conjunction with HRT, as an alternative treatment for patients who are not suitable for HRT or for those patients who have found HRT to be ineffective.
MonaLisa Touch works by stimulating the body’s own regenerative processes to create more hydrated and healthy cells and to improve the vascularity of the vaginal mucosa. This has a direct effect on the integrity and elasticity of the vaginal wall and increases the acidity of the vaginal environment to more normal levels. In general terms the procedure improves the function and health of the vagina.
Only gynaecologists who have been certified in the use of the equipment are able to perform this treatment in Queensland.
