Vaginal Rejuvenation Q & A

Suburban Women's Specialists

Why Would I Need Vaginal Rejuvenation?

The health of your vagina relies on thick tissue that has elasticity, tone, and lubrication. There are two main culprits that can interfere with your vaginal health by compromising this tissue, including:

  1. Childbirth: There are two forces at play when it comes to childbirth and your vaginal health. The first, and most obvious, is the fact that your vagina was stretched to its limits during childbirth and your body is slow to restore its previous elasticity and tone. Second, the fluctuation in hormones during and after pregnancy can wreak havoc on the collagen production in vaginal tissues.
  2. Menopause: When you pass through menopause, it’s marked by the sudden drop in hormones, namely estrogen, and progesterone. These hormones regulated your vaginal health in many ways, ensuring the tissue was healthy and well-lubricated, thanks to collagen and mucus. Without these hormones, your vaginal walls can become weak, thin, and dry, which leads to painful intercourse and sometimes even urinary incontinence.

How Does the MonaLisa Touch Work?

With the MonaLisa Touch, your doctor sends gentle laser energy through the walls of your vagina, with little harm to the surface area, to spur a healing response in the tissue below. This healing response comes in the form of increased collagen, which works to strengthen your tissue and restore the mucus production.

The laser energy also improves your muscle health, which allows better support for your bladder, which can solve problems with incontinence.

Lastly, your doctor can use the MonaLisa Touch on your external genitalia to tighten loose labia.

The laser technology is noninvasive, and each treatment lasts only five minutes, after which you’re free to return to your daily activities.

How Many MonaLisa Touch Treatments Do I Need?

Most women undergo three treatment sessions at Suburban Women’s Specialists. The treatments are spaced several weeks apart to allow time for your body to respond in between.

When Will I See Results?

Your results will be gradual as your body goes to work to shore up the tissue in your vagina. Some women experience results after their first treatment, while others see improvements after their second or third treatment. Most women report optimal results 6-12 weeks after their last treatment.
