Who is a candidate for vaginal revitalization?
As a woman ages, changes in hormone production, childbirth, and the natural aging process can lead to changes in vaginal tissue. You may experience greater inflammation and thinning, as well as irritation and itching.
With vaginal atrophy, sexual intercourse can be uncomfortable and even painful. You may also lose sensation during intercourse and experience less pleasure. Less tissue elasticity can also lead to mild urinary incontinence.
If you’re experiencing these symptoms, consult with the expert team at Horizons Health & Wellness to learn about possible solutions.
What treatments are used for vaginal revitalization?
Horizons Health & Wellness offers MonaLisa Touch® laser treatments. The noninvasive procedure uses laser energy to stimulate collagen production, resulting in more resilient and strong tissue.
Tissue quality also improves, so you have less dryness, burning, and painful intercourse.
What should I expect during vaginal revitalization treatments?
As you relax on an exam table with your feet in stirrups, your provider uses a sterile probe to emit the healing laser energy. The probe glides gently over the inner and outer tissue of your vaginal region.
You might feel slight warmth and vibrations, but no pain. Horizons Health & Wellness uses a mild numbing cream for the external treatments, but this is not necessary for the vaginal treatments as they are not painful. You return home shortly after the treatment with the tube of numbing cream if you need it.
Do I need to schedule downtime following vaginal revitalization?
You should refrain from sexual activity or tampon use for three to four days. Intense physical activity and hot baths are also discouraged in the days following treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
You’ll start to notice changes in your vaginal tissue and comfort after just one treatment. For best results, you should undergo a full course of three treatments spaced six weeks apart. Each session takes less than five minutes to perform.
You may also elect to have a yearly maintenance session to maintain the health of your vaginal tissue.
