Ever since the Deka SmartXide (SXT) medical grade lasers hit the market in Europe a few years ago, it has been creating ripples amongst gynaecologists, urologists, aestheticians, dermatologists and dentists.

All these specialists can make use of the technology.

Urologists and gynaecologists:

The MonaLisa Touch procedure can assist with vulvo-vaginal atrophies, relieves stress urinary incompetence, relieves pain during sexual intercourse, treats vaginal laxity and strengthens the muscles. It can also resolve postpartum perineal trauma for new mothers.

The MonaLisa Touch has treated over 30 000 women worldwide and is now becoming a global standard in female sexual health.

The procedure itself lasts under five minutes and is painless.

It is the only treatment of its kind supported by clinical studies and international publications.

Dermatologists and aestheticians:

With a quick change of the laser head, the SXT can be used by dermatologists and aestheticians.

The C02 laser can remove scars from any part of the body.

Wrinkles, crows feet, sagging eyes and necklines, sun burnt cleavage and even post-partum stretch marks can be improved. The smart pulse technology is also able to perform facial resurfacing with a reduced down time compared to other lasers on the market.


The SXT further proves its advanced level of versatility by assisting with multiple soft tissue surgeries performed by dentists.

This technology allows for a quicker recovery and faster healing compared to conven­tional methods of treatment currently being performed.

Dental uses include biopsies of lesion, aphthous ulcers, frenec­tomies, tongue ties, gingivectomies and other surgical dental procedures.

Laser hair removal:

Laser hair removal has also become a highly sought-after beauty treatment.

Laser technology used for hair removal results in less pain, less discomfort and is a more effective long-term hair removal solution compared to conven­tional methods of hair removal.

This is good news for males and females alike, as unwanted hair can now be removed safely, with less pain and at a fraction of the cost.

Medical lasers have made it possible to treat conditions pre­viously considered untreatable, or difficult to treat. Patients benefit by improved results and less cost.

  • People in the Northern Cape can now have access to these types of cutting edge technology on their doorstep.
