As women grow older, their estrogen levels decrease, causing their skin to gradually lose its moisture and elasticity. This impacts every area of skin, including the vaginal area. This is particularly evident in women who have recently given birth or are experiencing menopause. Vaginal atrophy can leave women susceptible to vaginal infections that cause uncomfortable sensations like burning and itching. Vaginal atrophy also affects the urinary tract since the two are so closely linked on the body, which can also result in urinary issues like incontinence and urinary tract infections.
The MonaLisa Touch is a non-surgical and non-pharmaceutical method of vaginal rejuvenation. It uses a CO2 laser specifically designed to revive the vaginal mucosa and bring vaginal conditions back into their normal range. It’s designed to re-activate the production of new collagen in order to prevent and resolve drops in estrogen levels.
The fractional CO2 laser gently and painlessly creates micro-lesions on the vaginal walls. The micro-lesions trigger the production of new collagen and a tissue regeneration process, which helps improve your vaginal and overall urogenital functions.
Each treatment only lasts a few minutes, and it doesn’t cause any pain, recovery time or side effects. You can resume your normal daily activities as soon as you finish your treatment, and you’ll start to notice the results after the first treatment. Your vaginal pH begins to balance out, and your vaginal walls regain their lubrication and elasticity. Your risk of infection decreases, you should see an improvement in symptoms like vaginal dryness, laxity, burning, and itching and you may even notice an improvement in your urinary tract issues.
