Vaginal Rejuvenation Q & A
What is vaginal rejuvenation?
Treatments for vaginal rejuvenation are focused on treating a range of vaginal complications that can diminish a woman’s quality of life and sexual intimacy, such as:
- Dryness and itching
- Stress urinary incontinence
- Vaginal pain and discomfort
- Painful intercourse
- A loss of elasticity and collagen
Vaginal rejuvenation is essentially an umbrella term for a number of different procedures. Prestige Healthcare OBGYN provides the MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation system, an innovative nonsurgical solution that uses safe, effective, and precise radiofrequency laser technology.
What are the benefits of vaginal rejuvenation?
You might be interested in vaginal rejuvenation to treat a number of issues. Impaired vaginal functioning and complications can be caused or exacerbated by various factors, including:
- Low estrogen production
- Certain medications
- Certain medical conditions
MonaLisa Touch can also enhance sexual sensation and stabilize your pelvic floor.
How does MonaLisa Touch work?
MonaLisa Touch is a minimally invasive and painless in-office treatment that usually takes around five minutes. There’s no downtime and no anesthesia involved.
During your MonaLisa Touch treatment, you lay on your back with your feet in stirrups, just like you would at your well-woman gynecological exam. Once you’re ready and comfortable, Dr. Simmons or Dr. Trench-Simmons gently places the thin laser probe into your vagina.
The probe painlessly and safely delivers precise, controlled laser wavelengths to your vaginal walls to prompt collagen production and restore the natural balance of the vaginal pH. Your vaginal pH is an integral part of your body’s defense against infection.
Dr. Simmons or Dr. Trench-Simmons carefully removes the probe and the treatment is complete.
When do I see results after my Mona Lisa Touch treatment?
The MonaLisa Touch laser hydrates, thickens, and tones your vaginal tissue and balances vaginal pH. The laser energy promotes elastin and collagen production — two proteins that are important for maintaining the elasticity and youthful look and texture of your tissues and skin. Your body generally produces less of these key proteins as you get older.
Tissue regeneration begins immediately and continues for weeks after your appointment. Many women report significant improvements following just one session, though the Prestige physicians often recommend three treatments spaced about six weeks apart for optimal results. You might want to consider yearly maintenance treatments that can be conveniently performed during your well-woman exam as well.
Following each MonaLisa Touch treatment, you should refrain from sexual activity for three or four days.
