Why Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation?

As we age, our bodies change and bear the signs of aging. In particular, the effects of aging are seen and felt by women—especially those who have gone through the process of childbirth. Most women who have multiple children experience magnified effects.

Have you experienced changes in your vaginal health since menopause? Do you know that as many as 50% of postmenopausal women suffer from changes in vaginal health?

Vaginal Rejuvenation, which is not as invasive as most plastic surgery, addresses the gynecological changes that women experience. This is not just a question of aesthetics, because it provides an opportunity to enhance our sexual health as well as sexual satisfaction. This non-invasive surgery can provide significant improvements in the look or feel of female genitals, such as the labia and vagina.

MonaLisa Touch® is the ideal treatment for those who are looking for a less invasive procedure with little to no risk, compared to traditional cosmetic surgical or pharmaceutical treatments. Other types of female genital cosmetic surgery include clitoral hood reduction, which makes the covering of the clitoris smaller (usually done at the same time as labiaplasty), vaginoplasty, which is marketed as a way to tighten the vaginal canal and vaginal laxity, which is marketed as a way to strengthen the perineum and enhance sexual function.

Who is the Right Candidate for Vaginal Laser Rejuvenation?

Many women experience vaginal dryness, itching, or urinary stress incontinence. Those who would benefit from Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedures may experience:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Itching and pain
  • Irritation
  • Burning sensation
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Painful intercourse
  • Diminished sexual enjoyment
  • Vaginal atrophy
  • Decreased lubrication during sex

How Do I Prepare for Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery?

  • Stop smoking for at least two weeks before and one week after the MonaLisa Touch® procedure. Nicotine can impair circulation and healing.
  • Avoid all intravaginal creams and lubricants and avoid intercourse for 24 hours prior to the procedure.
  • Starting the day before your scheduled procedure you need to drink plenty of water to stay well-hydrated. You do not need to fast.
  • Avoid alcohol the day before the procedure.
  • We recommend you shower the morning of the procedure.
  • You may drive yourself to the procedure and afterward. There will be minimal lingering vaginal discomfort.
  • If a mild anti-anxiety medication was prescribed for you prior to the procedure, you will need to have someone drive you to and from your procedure.

MonaLisa Touch & Vaginal Revitalization

The MonaLisa Touch is a laser therapy procedure designed to address vaginal dryness, discomfort, and other symptoms associated with menopause or hormonal changes. It involves the use of a fractional CO2 laser to gently stimulate the vaginal tissue, promoting collagen production and rejuvenating the area.

The MonaLisa surgery can help treat a variety of vaginal health issues, particularly those associated with menopause, hormonal changes, or aging. It’s used to address vaginal irritation, dryness, discomfort, and pain during intercourse (dyspareunia), which often result from decreased estrogen levels. The procedure can also help reduce vaginal itching, burning, and urinary incontinence symptoms. By promoting collagen production and rejuvenating the vaginal tissue, the MonaLisa Touch can restore elasticity and improve overall vaginal health.

The best candidates for the MonaLisa Touch therapy are typically women experiencing vaginal discomfort, dryness, or painful intercourse, often due to menopause or hormonal changes. MonaLisa Touch is also suitable for women who wish to improve vaginal health without hormone-based treatments. Ideal candidates are those seeking a minimally invasive procedure to address these symptoms and restore comfort and elasticity to the vaginal tissue.

The MonaLisa Touch laser treatment works by using a CO2 fractional laser to gently stimulate and heat the vaginal tissue and blood vessels, promoting collagen production and tissue regeneration. This process helps restore elasticity, vaginal moisture, and overall health to help alleviate symptoms like dryness and discomfort. The treatment typically involves minimal downtime.

The MonaLisa Touch® is an in-office procedure performed by an experienced physician. The procedure is virtually painless and requires no anesthesia. Some patients may experience some discomfort the first time the probe is inserted, but the actual treatment is not painful. A consultation with a MonaLisa Touch laser treatment doctor can answer any questions about the discomforts involved and how to manage them.

The procedure is similar to almost any other vaginal rejuvenation procedure and is not as invasive as plastic surgery. A strong lidocaine-based numbing cream will be applied prior to the procedure. This will ensure that this is a painless process. Before the laser is activated, everyone in the room must wear special eye protection which will be provided. The metal wand used will feel cool initially inserted. You will feel a vibrating sensation. You may experience a tingling sensation and or air puffs during the treatment. These may get stronger near the vaginal opening. There might be a slight sizzle sound during the laser pulse. There might be a slight odor from the vaginal tissue being warmed up. The procedure lasts about 5-10 minutes. An occlusive ointment will be applied after the completion of the procedure. A pad will be provided to protect your clothing. There will be no dermal fillers or chemical peels involved in this.

Some women experience a watery discharge or light spotting for a day or two after the cosmetic surgery. The vaginal area may feel swollen or full. Do not put anything inside your vagina for 48 hours such as tampons or sexual intercourse. After 48 hours, the area should feel normal with no discomfort. You will be scheduled for 2 additional treatments 6-weeks apart to complete the recommended protocol to achieve the maximum benefits from the MonaLisa Touch® procedure.

  • Your skin may feel sensitive and may be red and swollen. The treated area may be itchy.
  • Use cold compresses or cold gel packs (20 minutes on, 20 minutes off) as needed for swelling and discomfort.
  • Gently cleanse the area, including the labia minora and labia majora, 2-3 times a day with mild soap.
  • Dry the area with a hair-dryer on low heat instead of wiping with a towel. This is much less abrasive to the tissues. And a better way to improve the results.
  • Reapply a skincare occlusive ointment (Aquaphor) after each washing and continue to use until your skin is healed.
  • You use Motrin or Advil as needed.
  • Avoid lifting heavy weights or intense physical exercise for 72 hours following the treatment.
  • Wear loose, cotton underwear.
  • Avoid wearing pantyhose and tight-fitting pants.
