MonaLisa Touch Vaginal Rejuvenation Q & A
What is vaginal rejuvenation?
As you age, the skin around your vagina loses elasticity and muscle tone. These symptoms can leave you unhappy with the appearance and functionality of your vagina. If this is true for you, Dr. Northam offers vaginal rejuvenation services to tighten slack skin and strengthen your vaginal muscles.
A minimally invasive vaginal rejuvenation laser treatment is an efficient way to restore elasticity to the vaginal tissues and improve symptoms associated with childbirth and menopause. Dr. Northam uses laser treatments as an alternative to surgical rejuvenation procedures with positive results. You won’t have to worry about the risks of surgery and can return to your normal activities in no time.
Who is a good candidate for vaginal rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is a safe and effective treatment for women who are suffering from the effects of childbirth or menopause. If you’re unhappy with the overall look of your vagina due to slacking skin, vaginal rejuvenation may be an ideal treatment option.
Vaginal rejuvenation can also help if you experience:
- Painful intercourse
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal irritation and burning
- Sexual dissatisfaction
- Urinary incontinence
Dr. Northam discusses your expectations for improving the look and functionality of your vagina before treatment to determine if laser vaginal rejuvenation is right for you.
What is MonaLisa Touch?
Dr. Northam uses the MonaLisa Touch laser vaginal rejuvenation system to alleviate uncomfortable symptoms and restore your vaginal health. The MonaLisa Touch laser can effectively eliminate vaginal dryness, which leads to painful sex and irritation, as well as improve the tone and appearance of your vagina.
During your treatment, Dr. Northam uses a laser to stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen and trigger a healing response. As a result, your vaginal tissue regenerates, which increases elasticity and lubrication.
You won’t need to undergo anesthesia for this procedure. It is not painful and lasts about five minutes.
Dr. Northam creates a customized treatment plan for your rejuvenation. She may recommend additional treatments, spaced several weeks apart, to achieve the best results.
