The MonaLisa Touch laser vs other rejuvenation treatments
July 7, 2022at11:00 PM
Vaginal health can have a huge impact on your quality of life. Post-menopausal women, breast cancer survivors, or women who have undergone hysterectomies experience a range of uncomfortable symptoms related to the condition of vaginal tissue. Even if you’re reluctant to undergo surgery for vaginal rejuvenation, you’re not without options. There are many non-surgical treatments to reinvigorate and tighten tissue. Consulting with a board-certified gynecologist can help you find the ideal treatment for vaginal health. Here’s how the MonaLisa Touch laser treatment compares to other options.
MonaLisa Touch laser treatment for vaginal rejuvenation
There are two main types of non-surgical treatment for vaginal rejuvenation; laser and radiofrequency. The MonaLisa Touch uses a specialized CO2 fractional laser that stimulates new cell growth. Using the laser, a doctor can restore vaginal tissue to pre-menopause condition.
How does the MonaLisa Touch work?
A probe delivers controlled energy internally to the vaginal canal. This procedure uses a two-part pulse to target both the surface and deep tissue to stimulate new cell growth and thicken the epithelium. The laser treatment stimulates new collagen production in the cells, which is essential to vaginal health.
Benefits of treatment with the MonaLisa Touch laser
Pain-Free: The treatment takes place in the office and is virtually painless, making it much less stressful and disruptive than other treatments. There’s no need to schedule a hospital appointment or worry about the effects of anesthesia.
Quick: MonaLisa Touch laser treatment takes about five minutes. Most patients need three treatments to experience the full benefits at six-week intervals.
Effective: Many patients experience improvement in their symptoms after just one appointment. Follow-ups are recommended every 12 to 18 months, so the results are long-lasting.
Other common treatments for vaginal rejuvenation
For women experiencing vaginal health issues due to menopause, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is always an option. However, some comorbidities may make it impossible to take estrogen supplements, such as if you’ve had breast cancer or have heart or liver disease. In addition to the MonaLisa Touch laser, a doctor may recommend one of these non-surgical treatments for rejuvenation, skin tightening, and labiaplasty.
V Tone: Uses electrical stimulation and radiofrequency to rehabilitate pelvic floor muscles and treat incontinence, vaginal atrophy, and vaginal laxity.
Morpheus 8V: Uses microneedling radiofrequency technology to stimulate collagen and elastin production in vaginal tissues to treat vaginal laxity, diminished sensation, stress incontinence, and overactive bladders.
Forma V: A thermal skin tightening device that temporarily improves blood circulation, muscle pain, and muscle relaxation to treat many sexual dysfunction symptoms.
InMode Aviva: This procedure is a non-surgical solution for labiaplasty. It uses radiofrequency that provides scarless results and relief for labial hypertrophy.
