Vaginal Revitalization Q & A

What is vaginal revitalization?

Vaginal revitalization is a therapy that triggers a healing and collagen-remodeling process in your vagina to reverse the symptoms of atrophic vaginitis, which is the clinical term for thinner, dryer vaginal tissues. At Pikes Peak Urology, the doctors use the noninvasive, cutting-edge, pain-free MonaLisa Touch® laser by CynoSure® for vaginal revitalization.

Why do I need vaginal revitalization?

When you go through menopause, your levels of estrogen and other important hormones plummet. Estrogen is a hormone that helps keep your skin plump, strong, and elastic. When you lose estrogen, your vaginal and other genitourinary tissues get weaker and thinner, and the pH of your vagina changes, leading to symptoms such as:

  • Painful sex
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Stress incontinence
  • Urge incontinence
  • Urinating frequently at night
  • Recurrent UTIs
  • Itchy vulva
  • Itchy vagina

Before the MonaLisa Touch, doctors would prescribe topical or oral hormone replacement therapies to control the symptoms of atrophic vaginitis. However, long-term use of oral hormones isn’t recommended, and women who’ve had breast cancer shouldn’t use estrogen at all. Topical hormones can become less effective over time.

How does MonaLisa Touch work?

MonaLisa Touch is a fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser. The laser splits (fractionates) a beam of CO2 energy into a very small grid. Your doctor directs the fractionated energy into the lining of your vagina, where the heat initiates a healing process that stimulates your body to create new collagen and elastin.

As your vagina rebuilds itself through the collagen-remodeling process, the skin, muscles, and other tissues become stronger and thicker. After a series of three five-minute treatments, your vagina and surrounding tissues look and function like they did 10-30 years ago. 

Your benefits from MonaLisa Touch treatments include:

  • Increased skin elasticity
  • Increased blood flow
  • More beneficial pH
  • More youthful appearance

The Pikes Peak Urology team has found that 95% of women who’ve had MonaLisa treatments are happy with their results.

What are the benefits of vaginal revitalization?

The laser energy from MonaLisa Touch treatments reaches beyond your vagina to stimulate healing in other areas, too.

After your series of treatments, you can expect benefits such as:

  • More lubricated vagina
  • Tighter, stronger vagina
  • Pain-free sex
  • Increased sensation
  • Increased sexual pleasure
  • Less incontinence
  • Fewer UTIs

You receive your treatments about six weeks apart so that your tissues have the chance to begin the collagen remodeling process. Once your vaginal revitalization is complete, and you’re enjoying your benefits, the Pikes Peak Urology team recommends a touch-up treatment every year.
