What Is Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Through the side effects of childbirth, menopause, and aging, the skin and tissue of the internal and external vaginal areas can become lax, causing functional complications. Laser vaginal rejuvenation at Dr. Linda Sodoma Aesthetics and Gynecology employs the use of MonaLisa Touch, a hormone-free laser treatment to tighten the inside of the vagina and treat symptoms, like vaginal dryness, stress incontinence, and some sexual dysfunctions. Laser vaginal rejuvenation works by heating the interior and exterior vaginal tissue with lasers to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. It is an exciting nonsurgical choice to treat medical conditions and improve the body’s natural appearance. To find out more about laser vaginal rejuvenation, schedule a consult with Dr. Linda Sodoma at Dr. Linda Sodoma Aesthetics and Gynecology in Gilbert, AZ.

How Does Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Work?

Laser vaginal rejuvenation with MonaLisa Touch can be performed in-office in less than 15 minutes. No anesthesia is needed for this treatment. To perform the procedure, a wand-shaped handpiece will be passed over the exterior labia and vulva. Depending on the decided course of treatment, the wand may also be placed inside of your vagina as it emits controlled laser energy to the tissues and vaginal skin to stimulate collagen, which strengthens the area. A built-in thermometer is included on the wand to adjust the temperature as necessary to prevent burns and damage.

There is no real downtime needed following this laser vaginal rejuvenation. You may return to your normal, everyday activities upon the conclusion of the treatment; however, you should avoid sexual intercourse for about one week. For maximal results, Dr. Sodoma highly recommends three treatments spaced about six weeks apart. Many of our patients notice results after each session while some could take up to three months to form. These results typically last around 18 months, but annual touch-ups are recommended to preserve them.
