Why would I need vaginal laser rejuvenation?

You might want to consider laser rejuvenation if you develop problems with your vagina.

Cancer treatments, breastfeeding, and hysterectomies can all cause changes in vaginal tissue. However, the most common cause is a fall in estrogen production that occurs during menopause — the natural end of a woman’s reproductive life, when menstruation ceases.

Menopause can cause various problems, such as hot flashes and night sweats. A common challenge is vaginal dryness or urogenital atrophy, where natural plumpness and lubrication decline. The effects could include:

  • Vaginal wall thinning
  • Irritation
  • Itching
  • Burning
  • Inflammation
  • Laxity (looseness)

Sex might be uncomfortable or even painful with vaginal atrophy. You may also lose sensation during intercourse and experience less pleasure. Reduced tissue elasticity can lead to mild urinary incontinence.

If you develop these problems, talk to Dr. Amersi about vaginal laser rejuvenation.

How does vaginal laser rejuvenation work?

Dr. Amersi uses MonaLisa Touch® vaginal laser rejuvenation technology. This noninvasive procedure directs laser energy into the tissues, stimulating collagen production and producing more resilient, stronger tissue.

Vaginal lubrication also improves, so you have less dryness or burning, and sex becomes enjoyable again. In addition, MonaLisa Touch can help relieve mild urinary incontinence.

What does vaginal laser rejuvenation involve?

Vaginal laser rejuvenation is a straightforward procedure. You relax on an exam table with your feet in stirrups while Dr. Amersi uses a sterile probe to transmit healing laser energy.

The probe glides gently over your vagina’s inner tissue and the external vulval tissue. You might feel slight warmth and some vibration but no pain. You return home shortly after vaginal laser rejuvenation and can go about all your usual daily activities.

You may have slight discomfort for a day or two following treatment. Dr. Amersi can provide a supply of numbing cream if you need it. You should avoid sexual activity, tampon use, intense physical activity, and hot baths for 3-4 days after vaginal laser rejuvenation.

How many vaginal laser rejuvenation treatments will I need?

You should start to notice vaginal tissue improvements and increased comfort after just one MonaLisa Touch vaginal laser rejuvenation treatment. However, for the best results, you should complete a course of three treatments six weeks apart. Each session takes less than five minutes.

You may also choose to have a yearly maintenance session to maintain your vaginal tissue health.
