Vaginal atrophy, or the thinning of the vagina’s walls, is caused by a decrease in the levels of estrogen in the body. This is a natural part of growing older and experiencing menopause, but it comes with some unpleasant symptoms. The vagina can also experience discomfort during perimenopause and after childbirth. Ciao Bella Medical Center and Spa in Newnan, Georgia offers a variety of treatments, including MonaLisa Touch, a treatment for vaginal rejuvenation.
What Is MonaLisa Touch and How Does It Work?
MonaLisa Touch is a vaginal rejuvenation treatment. It’s non-surgical, FDA-approved, and involves inserting a carbon dioxide fractional laser into the vaginal canal. This laser probe targets both the internal (lamina propria) and external (epithelial) tissues of the vagina.
The probe emits controlled pulses into the vaginal canal, which stimulates a healing response. The body will produce new cells, new blood vessels, and more collagen (a protein that provides structure, strength, elasticity, and replacement cells for any dead skin cells), all of which will help rejuvenate the vagina and combat any atrophy.
What Is the Treatment Like?
This laser treatment is quick, and treatment can take under five minutes. This process is painless and does not require any anesthesia. You may experience a gentle vibration. There’s no downtime, and the results are stunning.
Initially, you may need three sessions spaced six weeks apart to experience the full benefits of this treatment. You may begin to notice improvement after the first session. After these initial treatments, the results will be long-lasting, though one touch up treatment each year might help maintain symptom relief.
What Are the Benefits of MonaLisa Touch?
Improved Bladder Control
MonaLisa Touch can treat urinary incontinence, or the loss of bladder control, through its healing effects. The laser encourages the body to produce more cells, blood vessels, and collagen, which helps strengthen the muscles and tissues that support the urethra, allowing for improved bladder control.
Less Vaginal Looseness
Because the laser will strengthen tissues and increase the production of collagen in the vagina, the area will have more structure and feel less loose.
More Natural Vaginal Lubrication
By rejuvenating the vagina, this process also invites natural vaginal lubrication, which will help combat vaginal dryness and any feelings of burning, itching, or looseness.
More Enjoyable Sexual Intercourse
Thanks to a reduction in the feeling of looseness, stronger vaginal walls, increased vaginal sensitivity, and more natural lubrication, sexual intercourse will likely be more enjoyable and less uncomfortable! You’ll be able to concentrate on the more pleasurable aspects of sexual intercourse without worrying about vaginal dryness, burning, or itching.
An Overall Healthier Vagina
Because of all the benefits MonaLisa Touch has for your vagina, your vagina will be and feel healthier, and your sex life may be more enjoyable after receiving treatment. This treatment will help reverse some of the negative effects aging or childbirth have had on your vagina.
