By now many people have heard about the popular procedure for women knows as Vaginal Rejuvenation or Vaginoplasty. It is a 1-2 hour procedure involving the tightening of the inner and outer muscles and structure of the vagina enhancing vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control.
There are numerous reasons women choose to undergo Vaginal Rejuvenation, many of which have nothing to do with sex. Some reasons include scar tissue surrounding the vagina, experiencing a “popping” sound during a yoga class or walking, problems passing bowel movements, and improved sex life. Here are some commonly asked questions about this procedure:
What does the treatment consist of?
The MonaLisa Touch treatment is performed using a special C02 fractional laser, specifically designed for this type of application. The procedure is carried out in the office and usually does not require anesthesia. It does not involve incisions or sutures. The sessions last 15-20 minutes.
Does the procedure hurt?
The procedure is virtually painless and requires no anesthesia. Some patients may experience some discomfort the first time the probe is inserted, but the actual treatment is not painful.
What type of results can I expect?
Most patients report a reduction in dryness, burning sensation and pain during intercourse, which contributes to a substantial improvement in the quality of life. These results are possible thanks to the stimulation of the mucosa, which regenerates and rejuvenates. This process involves cells and tissues and requires a few weeks to be completed. Results are more noticeable one and a half months after the session.
When will I see results?
Most patients feel improvement after the very first treatment, although the procedure calls for 3 treatments over a 12-week period.
How long does it last?
Patients should expect to come back annually for a maintenance treatment in order to make the results last over the course of time.
What are the benefits of this procedure?
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation allows for functional restoration of the vagina, which helps fight and reduce symptoms related to vaginal atrophy, a widespread problem among pre and post-menopausal women. Thanks to it’s action on facts that determine dryness, fragility and loss of mucosal elasticity, this treatment can eliminate troublesome itching, irritation and pain, which become acute during intercourse. The interaction with the laser, is the ideal method to stimulate the collagen contained in the vaginal walls for the rehydration and functional tissue restoration. Its beneficial action can contribute to improve self-confidence and sexual pleasure.
