Vaginal Rejuvenation Q & A
What is vaginal rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is a nonsurgical, noninvasive, nonhormonal way to improve the health of your vagina, increase its elasticity, and minimize the effects of menopause.
Vaginal rejuvenation stimulates your body’s natural healing mechanisms. The energy from the laser light increases the production of collagen and elastin, subsequently strengthening and supporting your body’s tissues.
Over time, vaginal rejuvenation treatments lead to improved vaginal health, including:
- Tighter and healthier skin
- More natural lubrication
- Enhanced sensation
- Decreased pain during intercourse
- Increased libido
What happens during vaginal rejuvenation?
When you see Dr. Axmann or Dr. Whitaker for vaginal rejuvenation treatment, the procedure feels similar to your yearly gynecological exam. A staff member shows you to a private room, where you remove garments from your lower half and lay on the exam table.
Your doctor then inserts the MonaLisa TouchⓇ laser into your vagina. This thin vaginal probe uses laser light energy to penetrate deep into the tissues of your vaginal wall. This light doesn’t damage the skin but creates painless micro-abrasions that stimulate your body’s healing processes.
To ensure the entire area gets treated, Dr. Axmann or Dr. Whitaker shifts the wand’s position every few moments. The total procedure time takes less than five minutes, and as soon as the doctor completes it, you can go.
What should you expect after vaginal rejuvenation?
The healing effects of vaginal rejuvenation begin immediately. Some patients notice that their vaginas feel fuller and tighter within a few days and also experience an increase in sensation and arousal. You reach maximum results about six months post-treatment.
After your vaginal rejuvenation treatment at Axmann & Whitaker Gynecologic Associates, you can return to your daily schedule. The only restriction is avoiding sexual intercourse for 2-3 days.
To get the optimal benefit, the team at Axmann & Whitaker Gynecologic Associates recommends you get three treatments, six weeks apart.
