You cannot hold back the hands on the clock of time. You have come to accept that fact and have learned to deal with the effects of aging. Wrinkles, an occasional gray hair, and aching joints are par for the course. However, you may not have expected to have problems with your vagina. With the passage of time, pregnancies, and the fluctuations in hormone levels that come with menopause, you may have experienced unsettling symptoms. Vaginal dryness, loose skin, incontinence and difficulty climaxing during intercourse are all common symptoms for women, as they get older.
Whether you are feeling this way because of the changes that occur with the aging process, you have a hormonal imbalance, or you have had several pregnancies that have had an impact on your vagina, you do not have to live with these symptoms. Feminine rejuvenation is possible with the MonaLisa Touch, and our team at Wayzata Cosmetic Surgery and Spa can help.
What is the MonaLisa Touch?
The MonaLisa Touch is an innovative treatment that uses a handheld laser. The device applies controlled energy through laser light to your vaginal area. By producing heat and targeting your areas of concern, collagen production will be improved. With the stimulation of collagen, the skin and tissues within the vagina will tighten. You will have more firmness and improved elasticity with each treatment. The MonaLisa Touch treatment has been found to be effective for women who have had breast cancer or a hysterectomy and experienced vaginal discomfort as a result.
What to Expect During MonaLisa Touch Treatments
MonaLisa Touch treatments are performed in our Wayzata office. You can expect little to no pain, and each session takes as little as five minutes. Patients are given three treatments that will be spaced out over the course of several weeks. You will be given a gown and sit on an exam table where your feet will be placed in stirrups in the same fashion as your vaginal exams. Your treatment provider will insert a ring that is sterile into the opening of your vagina. This allows the doctor to insert the handheld device without causing irritation to the opening of your vagina. At that point, the device is inserted into your vagina and treatment will begin.
Recovery from MonaLisa Touch Treatments
You will have no down time after your MonaLisa Touch treatment session and can return to daily activities. However, you should refrain from sexual intercourse for three days after your treatment. You should not insert anything into your vagina, such as tampons, for three days. You may notice a slight difference in the way it feels when you urinate for the first time after treatment. Within a week of your first session, you should begin to feel an improvement inside your vagina.
At Wayzata Cosmetic Surgery and Spa, we offer different vaginal rejuvenation treatments to help you get back to feeling your best. We will work with you to create a treatment plan that is safe, effective and comfortable. Contact Wayzata Cosmetic Surgery and Spa today to schedule your consultation.
