For many women, sexual health and satisfaction are not things they will discuss. This is a shame because many women could benefit from vaginal rejuvenation. The MonaLisa Touch® is a safe, non-surgical way to increase pleasure in the bedroom while also getting rid of unpleasant symptoms associated with vaginal laxity.
How Does the MonaLisa Touch® Treatment Work?
CO2 lasers are behind the magic of the MonaLisa Touch® treatments. They are used to precisely stimulate collagen production in vaginal tissue. The energy that is produced by the laser gently heats the tissue, which results in a healing response.
Completely non-surgical, this treatment is done in the comfort of our office. The actual treatment takes as little as five minutes to complete. Afterward, you may be advised to abstain from sexual activity for a few days while your body heals. Other than that, you can immediately resume your normal daily routine.
How many treatments you will need depends on a variety of factors. This will be discussed at your initial consultation where we create a treatment plan for you. Many women find that three treatments that are spaced 4-6 weeks apart are ideal. The time in between appointments allows your body to build collagen. Almost all women notice some improvements after each session.
