Declining estrogen levels during or after menopause, childbirth, and surgery or injury can cause vaginal atrophy, which can lead to vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, incontinence, and other issues. These problems can have a significant impact on your gynecological health and overall well-being. At Advanced Obstetrics & Gynecology, we offer safe, effective state-of-the-art laser treatment that can ease your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
Vaginal rejuvenation procedures are used to correct problems such as laxity (lack of tightness) of the vagina, lack of lubrication, and stress urinary incontinence. One of the fastest, easiest ways to treat these issues is with fractional CO2 laser treatment such as MonaLisa Touch. It can be particularly helpful for women who can’t use traditional hormone replacement therapy.
MonaLisa Touch delivers gentle laser energy to the vaginal wall tissue, stimulating collagen production, which makes the skin firmer and tighter. A typical course of treatment is three procedures over the course of 18 weeks. Many women report relief after their very first treatment and even greater improvement after the second and third treatments.
Unlike surgery such as vaginoplasty, no anesthetic is required for this gentle, noninvasive rejuvenation procedure. It is virtually painless and often takes less time than an annual exam. Your health care provider eases the laser into your vagina, where it delivers gentle pulses of energy into the vaginal wall. This process activates the production of collagen and revitalizes the vaginal mucosa, which provides secretions to moisten and lubricate the interior of the vagina.
Fractional CO2 laser treatment allows you to resume your normal activities right away, but your doctor will likely advise you not to have sexual intercourse for two or three days to give your vaginal tissues time to begin the healing process. Vaginal rejuvenation can also:
Undergoing rejuvenation treatment can be life-changing. Many women who experience the symptoms mentioned above suffer in silence, which can take a toll on their relationships, self-esteem, and overall health. This simple, safe, and effective procedure can provide overwhelmingly positive and immediate results that improve both your physical and mental health. Regardless of the reasons you’re considering rejuvenation, it’s worth talking with your women’s health care provider to find out whether it’s right for you.
