Many people experience vaginal dryness, vaginal laxity, and urinary incontinence, especially after childbirth as well as before and after menopause. As a gentle, minimally invasive treatment, MonaLisa Touch provides functional restoration of the vagina without the need for anesthesia, surgery, or lengthy downtime for recovery. After treatment, patients tend to experience less vaginal dryness, less burning and irritation, reduced pain during intercourse, improved urinary control, and better quality of life.
MonaLisa Touch uses a fractional laser to target tissue in the affected area. This stimulates collagen production in the vaginal walls and improves hydration. Because it uses gentle lasers, any discomfort is minimal, and most people can return to their usual daily activities within a few days.
The number of needed treatments varies based on factors such as the type and intensity of your symptoms. Many patients benefit from one to three treatments scheduled 40-60 days apart, followed by a yearly maintenance treatment. Benefits surface immediately after your treatment and increase gradually over the following months.
Like most medical treatments, side effects are possible with MonaLisa Touch. That said, any side effects that can occur tend to be mild and temporary. Potential side effects include slight swelling, redness, and discomfort in the treatment area.
Avoiding heavy lifting and certain activities, such as taking hot baths, intense exercise, or having intercourse within a few days of your treatment, can enhance recovery.
Vaginal laxity, or “looseness,” can derive from numerous causes. If your symptoms stem from an injury, general aging, or childbirth, see your doctor to determine the specific cause. MonaLisa Touch treatments can reduce vaginal laxity caused by mucosal tone loss by rejuvenating these tissues.
Once you’ve recovered from your treatment, intercourse is likely to feel much more comfortable and pleasurable. Reduced vaginal dryness means more natural lubrication, which plays an important role in arousal. Many women experience greater sexual self-confidence after the treatment.
