MonaLisa Touch Laser Treatment

Female vaginal health is often overlooked or a topic of embarrassment even to bring up to a doctor. However, there are several conditions that can impact daily life, the pleasure of sexual intercourse, and urination habits that can be solved with a new, pain-free treatment option. MonaLisa Touch laser treatment is a revolutionary new option for non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation or vaginal tightening. By utilizing a special fractional CO2 laser that was designed specifically for the vaginal mucosa, doctors are now able to provide the healing benefits of laser therapy to treat certain vaginal conditions.

During pregnancy, after childbirth, and menopause, through the use of certain medications and other contributing factors, estrogen (the female sex hormone) levels can drop and cause certain conditions to develop as a result in the vagina, like atrophic vaginitis, dyspareunia, and urinary incontinence. These conditions are caused by a variety of factors, like vaginal dryness, weakened vaginal wall muscles, and more. With the MonaLisa Touch procedure, the production of new collagen is stimulated, and the vaginal mucosa is restored to its original condition.

The benefits of the MonaLisa Touch treatment are truly remarkable, and undergoing the MonaLisa therapy can have many positive effects not just on women’s sex life but on their overall health.

The way that the treatment works is that the CO2 laser stimulates a process called neocollagenesis. By emitting short bursts of energy, the fractional laser creates microscopic lesions in the tissues below the surface. The body’s natural healing process is triggered by these micro-lesions, and the vagina begins to rejuvenate itself. Neocollagenesis, the process of new collagen production, and the rejuvenation of the vaginal mucosa back to its original state take place as a result of the laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment.

Many patients will experience immediate results following the first treatment session of non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation with MonaLisa Touch treatment. Most patients require more than one treatment to experience the best results, and the following areas will be improved:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Burning
  • Itching
  • Dyspareunia
  • Elasticity
  • Improved urogenital function to reduce incontinence issues

These benefits are long-lasting, and the tissue regeneration process that is stimulated will last several weeks, so the conditions will improve after the treatment sessions have been completed. During the mucosa restoration, the tissues become more hydrated and nourished from the increased blood flow; the epithelium becomes thicker and vaginal muscles become more toned and elastic. With the increased natural lubrication, the correct vaginal pH levels are restored, which helps keep the vagina healthy.

MonaLisa Touch laser therapy only lasts a few minutes, but the results will last and improve your daily life. There is a risk involved in trying this new treatment option if you experience atrophic vaginitis, dyspareunia, or urinary incontinence. There are MonaLisa Touch side effects, but they are extremely mild and are only present immediately following the treatment. They include temporary itching, burning, redness, or inflammation. You owe it to yourself to gain the quality of life back that you desire, and MonaLisa therapy can help. Dr. Andrew Krinsky of Tamarac offers vaginal rejuvenation to south Florida by offering MonaLisa Touch procedures.

Atrophic Vaginitis

When estrogen levels drop, whether caused by menopause, breastfeeding, pregnancy, or other factors, one of the most problematic conditions that can develop is atrophic vaginitis, which is thinning, drying, and inflammation of the vaginal mucosa. Women can experience a variety of unpleasant symptoms like itching, burning, increased sensitivity, pain during sex, or urination problems. MonaLisa Touch can help combat the painful effects of atrophic vaginitis.

This condition is when a woman experiences pain during sexual intercourse as an after-effect of atrophic vaginitis. Women who suffer from atrophic vaginitis experience thin, inelastic vaginal walls and decreased natural lubrication, and increased dryness. The combination of all these factors leads to pain during or after sexual intercourse. Understanding the cause of the discomfort and pain will lead to much more targeted treatment options, and if they are a result of atrophic vaginitis, MonaLisa Touch can help you find the pleasure in your sex life once again.

Urinary Incontinence

While many genital conditions can be embarrassing, urinary incontinence severely impacts the daily life of many women. There are two main forms of urinary incontinence and a combination of the two. Stress incontinence comes from activities like sneezing, laughing, or movements that can compromise the control of the bladder sphincter. Urgency incontinence is a result of an overactive or lack of control of the urination stimulus, which results in the frequent urge to urinate. Because urinary incontinence can be a complex condition, careful diagnosis is necessary to determine the proper cause. MonaLisa Touch non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation treatments can help resolve urinary incontinence issues and remove this unpleasantness from your life.
