As women age, they may experience a variety of changes in their bodies, including vaginal discomfort, dryness, and decreased elasticity. These symptoms can significantly impact a woman's quality of life and intimate relationships.
Fortunately, advancements in medical technology have led to the development of innovative treatments like MonaLisa Touch®, which offer a safe and effective solution for vaginal rejuvenation 一 and it’s available here at Bellingham Urology Group in Bellingham and Mount Vernon, Washington.
Here’s what you need to know about MonaLisa Touch and why it is an excellent choice for women seeking to enhance their vaginal health.
MonaLisa Touch is an advanced laser treatment that rejuvenates the vagina by stimulating collagen production and tissue regeneration, offering a non-invasive solution for various vaginal concerns with quick and long-lasting results.
It’s great for vaginal rejuvenation because it’s:
One of the primary advantages of MonaLisa Touch is that it is a non-invasive and minimally disruptive treatment option for vaginal rejuvenation. Unlike traditional surgical procedures, such as vaginoplasty or labiaplasty, MonaLisa Touch utilizes advanced laser technology 一 specifically, fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser energy 一 to stimulate collagen production and promote tissue regeneration within the vaginal walls.
The procedure is performed in an outpatient setting, without the need for anesthesia, incisions, or sutures, ensuring minimal discomfort and downtime for the patient.
MonaLisa Touch can address a wide range of vaginal issues that commonly occur due to hormonal changes, menopause, or childbirth. These concerns include vaginal dryness, itching, burning, painful intercourse, laxity, and urinary incontinence.
By delivering fractional laser energy to the vaginal tissues, MonaLisa Touch stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. As new collagen and elastin fibers are produced, vaginal lubrication improves, restoring tissue elasticity and enhancing overall vaginal health.
Not only is MonaLisa Touch non-invasive, but it’s also quick and convenient. The procedure typically takes about five minutes, and most patients report feeling minimal to no discomfort during the treatment.
Since it doesn’t require any downtime or recovery period, you can resume your daily activities immediately after the session. You may need to refrain from sexual intercourse for 2-3 days, however.
The treatment plan usually consists of three sessions spaced six weeks apart, providing noticeable improvements with each subsequent session.
MonaLisa Touch has undergone rigorous clinical trials, demonstrating its effectiveness against genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) and safety in numerous scientific studies. The laser technology used in MonaLisa Touch is designed to deliver precise energy levels, ensuring optimal results without damaging any surrounding tissues.
You can feel confident in the reliability and credibility of this treatment. Keep in mind, though, that there are contraindications, such as being pregnant, having had a baby within the previous three months, and having a history of keloid formation.
Perhaps one of the most significant advantages of MonaLisa Touch is the long-lasting results it offers. Following the recommended treatment plan, you can experience improvements in vaginal health that can last for several years.
However, individual results may vary, and occasional maintenance treatments may be required to sustain the desired outcomes. During your consultation, our team of board-certified urologists determines the appropriate maintenance schedule based on your individual needs.
Vaginal rejuvenation is a personal and sensitive subject, and choosing the right treatment is essential for women seeking to enhance their vaginal health. MonaLisa Touch, with its non-invasive nature, effectiveness, convenience, and long-lasting results, proves to be an excellent choice for vaginal rejuvenation.
