MonaLisa Touch Q&A
What causes vaginal dryness and laxity?
Your vaginal tissues are delicate, and over time they are subjected to strain. Women who’ve gone through pregnancy and childbirth often experience vaginal laxity, the medical term for lost tightness in vaginal walls. Those who have had multiple pregnancies are especially vulnerable to these changes.
The aging process is also to blame. As you move closer to menopause your hormonal balance can shift. This can slow down the natural production of vaginal moisture, making sex less comfortable and enjoyable. For some women, vaginal dryness is painful even during normal activities.
What is MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch is a treatment that uses fractional CO2 laser technology to stimulate vaginal tissues. These treatments, often referred to as vaginal rejuvenation, are a great way to restore healthy vaginal function.
Treatments work by using a specially-designed, comfortable vaginal probe to deliver carefully controlled laser energy into your vaginal tissues. That energy creates heat in the deeper layers of skin, prompting your body to create new collagen that tightens the treated area.
These treatments also promote renewed production of vaginal lubrication, which can enhance sensations for both you and your intimate partner.
Is MonaLisa Touch safe?
MonaLisa Touch is backed by substantial research and clinical trials. It is a safe and effective treatment option for women of all ages.
Treatments require no anesthesia, advance preparation, or significant recovery time. They take less than an hour from start to finish, and active treatment time is just a few moments. You might feel a gentle warming sensation during sessions, but there is no discomfort or pain.
Most women benefit from a series of several MonaLisa Touch treatments, but many report improvements after their initial treatment. It takes time for your body to produce new collagen, so expect results to develop slowly in the weeks and months following your sessions.
