MonaLisa Touch® Q & A

What is vaginal rejuvenation?

As you age, your skin naturally loses elastin and collagen. As a result, your vaginal walls may become thinner and lose their natural lubrication ability, causing vaginal atrophy. Changes in the pH balance of your vagina can also affect your vaginal health and functionality.

Vaginal atrophy is more likely to occur in postmenopausal women, but may also affect women who’ve given birth.

Vaginal rejuvenation using MonaLisa Touch laser technology stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen to restore the vaginal tissue structure and increase blood circulation.

What are the symptoms of vaginal atrophy?

Symptoms of vaginal atrophy include:

  • Discharge
  • Painful sex
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Burning with urination
  • Vaginal dryness or itching

These symptoms can all be alleviated with the MonaLisa Touch procedure.

What is urinary incontinence?

Urinary incontinence occurs when your bladder muscles become weakened, which in turn makes it harder for you to control your bladder. Sometimes referred to as stress incontinence, urine leaks can happen when you:

  • Run
  • Laugh
  • Cough
  • Sneeze
  • Lift heavy objects

Urinary incontinence frequently occurs in women who’ve given birth or because of their natural aging process.

How does MonaLisa Touch work?

You can relax in the comfortable, inviting office environment during the MonaLisa Touch procedure, which only takes about five minutes to complete. First, Dr. Mehan or Dr. Wadhwa inserts a narrow, wand-shaped device into your vagina. Then, they apply a laser to your vaginal wall tissues.

Within 30 days, the treated areas grow new collagen and tissue cells that restore your ability to create natural lubrication and add volume to your vagina.

New tissue growth improves the structure of the vaginal walls to reduce instances of incontinence. This laser treatment also restores the natural pH balance of your vaginal lining, eliminating vaginal irritation and discomfort.

You may experience a significant improvement in your vaginal dryness and stress incontinence symptoms following the first treatment, but it’s more common to achieve your desired results after one or two additional treatments spaced a few months apart.
