We are proud to be one of the few accredited centers providing MonaLisa Touch, the innovative new laser treatment for vaginal rejuvenation.
Just a few decades ago, vaginal rejuvenation was a term we had not heard. Today, many women are finding the freedom to discuss the concerns they experience as they age. Even better, they are finding solutions from health care providers who have dedicated hundreds of hours to finding suitable protocols for care.
The aging body
With age come biochemical changes resulting in issues with the strength and resilience of various tissues in the body. As these changes pertain to women’s health, there is the matter of hormones and substances such as collagen. Many women recognize the role that collagen plays in the appearance of their skin. Most, however, do not realize that collagen is also a necessary component, along with estrogen, for vaginal health.
When collagen and estrogen are both lacking, which they are especially after menopause, a woman’s quality of life can be severely impacted. After menopause, 75 percent of women report experiencing symptoms such as:
- Vaginal dryness
- Urinary incontinence
- Pain during intercourse
- A decrease in feelings of femininity
Why vaginal laser treatment
MonaLisa Touch is an innovative vaginal laser based on fractional CO2 technology. This non-surgical treatment offers women an alternative to hormone replacement therapy for the regeneration of vaginal tissues. When the special laser scanner targets cells in vaginal mucosa, micro-lesions are made. In response, the cells in the immediate area respond with a proliferation of healing collagen. The procedure is painless and has no side effects. The result is immediate improvement in symptoms of atrophic vaginitis.
After just one treatment with the MonaLisa Touch laser, the regeneration of vaginal tissue begins. We schedule three treatments over three months, encouraging the ongoing production of collagen to support vaginal health.
Menopause or low estrogen due to other causes need not degrade your quality of life. Regain confidence and comfort with the latest laser treatments for women. Call North Shore Urogynecology near Chicago.
