Vaginal Rejuvenation Q & A
What is Vaginal Atrophy?
Vaginal atrophy is a common problem among women who’ve undergone hormonal changes related to menopause, hysterectomy, or cancer treatment. Decreased estrogen levels can cause the walls of your vagina to become thin, dry, and inflamed.
This can lead to painful symptoms, such as:
- Vaginal itching and burning
- Urinary incontinence
- Painful sex
- Decreased vaginal lubrication during sex
- Shortening and tightening of the vaginal canal
- Increased risk of urinary tract infections
If you experience any of these symptoms, you’re not alone. Up to 50% of postmenopausal women suffer from vaginal atrophy, although few seek treatment.
What is MonaLisa Touch?
Vaginal atrophy can negatively affect your quality of life and interfere with your romantic relationships. Nonsurgical treatment with the MonaLisa Touch offers a safe and effective solution.
The MonaLisa Touch is a medical system that delivers gentle laser energy into the tissues of your vagina. The laser energy stimulates your body’s natural healing response and promotes increased collagen production.
The result is healthy, hydrated vaginal tissue with no incisions, anesthesia, or recovery time. MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation typically requires three five-minute treatments spaced six weeks apart, and most women experience noticeable symptom relief after the first session.
What Should I Expect From a Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment?
First, your provider at Woodglen Medical Group performs a thorough physical exam and reviews your medical history to make sure you’re a good candidate for laser vaginal rejuvenation.
Treatment with the MonaLisa Touch is an in-office procedure that takes only a few minutes. During treatment, your provider gently inserts a specialized wand inside your vagina. While you relax, the wand sends controlled laser energy into your vaginal tissues. This procedure is painless, but you may feel a gentle vibrating sensation.
You can get back to your normal activities right away, but you should refrain from having sex for 2-3 days. Though you may notice an improvement right away, three sessions are recommended for optimal results. After that, you may need to return for touch-up treatments about once a year.
