Expected Results*Monalisa Touch Laser Rejuvenation will effectively enhance vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control. These results are possible due to the stimulation of the mucosa which regenerates & rejuvenates. It will also effectively decrease the internal and external diameters as well as build up and strengthen the perineal body. This procedure contributes to a substantial improvement in the quality of life. MonaLisa Touch® is now the most effective non-surgical and non-pharmacological solution for preventing and treating vaginal atrophy and its after-effects, which many women suffer from during menopause and after childbirth.
How It Works. Fractional Laser: Combination of maximum effectiveness without side effects or painThe CO2 laser gently acts on the vaginal walls through a special scanner, creating indistinguishable micro-lesions that are required for triggering a neocollagenesis process (production of new collagen) and reorganizing and re-equilibrating the components of the vaginal mucosa. The laser’s action therefore safely and painlessly reactivates and reestablishes the proper function of the relative urogenital structures while also improving the symptoms associated with urinary dysfunction (mild incontinence due to stress). A tissue regeneration process lasting numerous weeks is triggered, but stimulation occurs immediately and significant improvements can be seen even after the first treatment.
The Results: Complete tissue regeneration starting from the first treatment.The mucosa tissue thus becomes more nourished and hydrated and the epithelium becomes thicker, more toned (vaginal tightening) and elastic. It also reestablishes the correct vaginal pH, which helps maintain its natural protective barrier and reduces the risk of infection. One simple treatment lasting only a few minutes, without pain, side effects or recovery time, can give the tissue the tone and elasticity it once had, with positive effects on one’s quality of life andpersonal relationships.
