5 Benefits of Vaginal Rejuvenation

One of the definitions of rejuvenation is, “the action or process of giving new energy or vigor to something.” Whether you’ve passed through menopause or you’re experiencing vaginal problems for other reasons, your vaginal health is on the decline and could do with “new energy or vigor.” And we can deliver this energy with our MonaLisa Touch® system.

Vaginal rejuvenation is a service in which the team here at Associates in Obstetrics & Gynecology takes great pride. We believe that a woman's overall wellness very much includes her vaginal health, and we have the cutting-edge technology you need to improve this area of your health.

To give you an idea of what we can accomplish through vaginal rejuvenation with MonaLisa Touch, here are five benefits the treatment provides.

1. Tackles vaginal dryness

One of the primary complaints among women who pass through menopause is vaginal dryness. In fact, this problem affects half of postmenoapsual women between the ages of 51 and 60.

The reason this occurs is due to the sudden drop in hormones (namely estrogen) as your ovaries shut down. Estrogen plays a key role in ensuring that your vaginal tissue has an ample supply of collagen and moisture to encourage intercourse. Absent this structural protein and lubrication, your tissue becomes thin and dry.

With MonaLisa Touch, we deliver gentle CO2 laser energy into your vaginal walls, which elicits a collagen response in your tissue and encourages lubrication.

2. Addresses painful sex

While vaginal dryness can lead to painful or uncomfortable sex, the problem may also stem from thinning vaginal tissue. As we described above, with MonaLisa Touch, we can rejuvenate your vaginal tissues, making them thicker and more supple.

3. Decreases problems with incontinence

As if a decline in your sexual health weren’t bad enough, the loss of tissue support in your vagina can lead to problems with urinary incontinence. With MonaLisa Touch, we can strengthen your tissues so that they better support your urethra and bladder.

4. Improves vaginal health without hormones

One of the treatments for poor vaginal health is hormone replacement therapy, which can be effective, but it has a more widespread impact since it’s a systemic approach. If you simply want to target your vaginal health without altering other systems in your body, MonaLisa Touch is a great chemical- and hormone-free solution.

5. Takes only a few minutes

One of the aspects our patients love the most about our MonaLisa Touch system (aside from the great results) is that the treatments are quick, easy, and painless.  Each treatment lasts only five minutes or so and we typically recommend a series of 3-5 treatments.

As you progress through your MonaLisa Touch treatments, you’ll realize gradual results as your tissue rejuvenates.
