MonaLisa Touch Q & A
What causes vaginal dryness?
As you get older, your body slows down its production of collagen and elastin, two vital components of healthy skin. This loss of collagen and elastin is what causes wrinkles and lines to develop on your face and body, including your vaginal area.
In addition, menopause results in a significant decline in estrogen hormone production which can also cause vaginal dryness and itching.
Without a sufficient supply of collagen and elastin, vaginal tissue becomes thinned out and loses the ability to stretch. Declining estrogen levels can further decrease natural lubrication, which can lead to problems like:
- Painful sex
- Frequent infections
Weakened vaginal tissues can also affect your bladder control. As tissues that support your bladder become thinner, you may be prone to frequent leaks of urine, especially when you laugh, cough, or sneeze.
How does MonaLisa Touch work?
MonaLisa Touch is an innovative and painless vaginal rejuvenation technology that uses gentle laser energy to heat vaginal tissues. This heating process triggers your body’s natural healing ability, stimulating the growth of new collagen and elastin to improve vaginal tissue health.
Your Complete Healthcare for Women physician inserts a slender probe that delivers the energy directly into the vaginal tissue. Treatment takes just minutes and requires no anesthesia or surgical incision.
Once your treatment is over, you can go back to work or your usual routine without any downtime or recovery period. Your physician may recommend avoiding sexual activity for two to three days to ensure you achieve optimal results.
What kind of results can I expect with MonaLisa Touch treatments?
While MonaLisa Touch treatments are fast, it takes more time to see your results. Your body begins producing new collagen and elastin soon after your procedure, and it can take four weeks or longer before you notice changes in your vaginal health.
You can expect to see an improvement in the tightness of your vaginal skin. As new collagen and elastin build, you may also notice less frequent urinary leaks and increased sexual satisfaction.
The total benefit of treatment is usually seen after 12 weeks and can last for months or years, depending on your age and unique health history.
