Vaginal rejuvenation is a treatment many women consider as they experience changes down below. Due to ageing, childbirth, hormonal changes and the menopause, the vaginal structure changes leading women to experience potentially painful symptoms and embarrassing. Vaginal atrophy refers to thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls that may occur when your body has less oestrogen. This can cause a number of symptoms including vaginal dryness, vaginal burning, genital or vaginal itching, burning with urination, pain during intercourse, urinary incontinence, decreased vaginal lubrication during sexual activity and concerns with vaginal laxity. All of these can contribute towards a low self-esteem, reduced sexual experience for you and your partner and can massively affect day to day life.

Vaginal atrophy is caused by a decrease in oestrogen production in the body. This is where vaginal tissues become drier, less elastic and thinner.

There are a number of things that affect your oestrogen levels. These include the menopause and lead up to the menopause, breastfeeding, taking certain medication and as a side effect after certain cancer treatments. We see an increased number of women over the age of 50 for vaginal rejuvenation treatment with our resident doctor. We often treat the below concerns using the MonaLisa Touch® at our Leamington Spa clinic.

Pain during sexual intercourse (Dyspareunia)

Our vaginal rejuvenation treatment can reduce pain experienced during intercourse. This treatment utilises the power of the CO2 laser by stimulating the production of collagen and fibroblast in the vaginal walls, leading to the vagina becoming better lubricated and elastic. With time, after treatment sex should feel enjoyable again.

Urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence, which is loss of bladder control, can be an embarrassing problem for many women. This can be due to the ageing process, pregnancy, childbirth and the menopause. There are 2 types of urinary incontinence – Stress incontinence and Urge incontinence. Stress incontinence refers to stress or pressure placed on the bladder, perhaps during physical activities like coughing, laughing or sneezing. Urge incontinence or an “overactive bladder” is where urine leaks suddenly after you feel a strong urge to go to the bathroom.

The MonaLisa Touch® is a non-surgical CO2 laser treatment that is gentle, restores vaginal health and improves quality of life. The treatment is suitable for most, as vaginal atrophy symptoms do not discriminate. The treatment is carried out by our experienced doctor who put you at ease from the consultation. The MonaLisa Touch® by DEKA lasers is a medical laser with very few risks and little downtime. Treatment is virtually pain free too and works by stimulating the production of collagen and fibroblast. The MonaLisa Touch® is a specialist laser for intimate areas only and is backed up by advanced research all over the world and proven protocols.

Women will first attend a medical consultation with our doctor where you will undergo an assessment and we will take a full medical history. During your consultation, you can get to know our doctor to ensure you are in the very best hands. Our vaginal rejuvenation specialists will be able to provide you with a suggested treatment plan including the number of sessions needed to see the most effective results. There are usually three treatments, performed every 4-6 weeks until you can see an improvement in your symptoms.

During treatment, a small metal probe will be inserted carefully into the vagina. This will deliver laser energy to the vaginal area and vaginal mucosa to stimulate the production of collagen, fibroblast and elastin. The MonaLisa Touch® triggers the natural repair process, promoting improved lubrication and restoring healthy tissue. It will also restore balance to the mucous membrane. Because the laser sterilises the skin, you will not see any blood. The success rate for treatment is very high in women experiencing hormone related vaginal dryness and pain during intercourse. The vaginal rejuvenation procedure is relatively easy and you will not require any anaesthetic.

After your treatment course, you should expect an increased blood flow to the vagina and stronger, thicker and more flexible tissue. Typically, patients will experience very minor side effects but this can vary from patient to patient. Some report minor discomfort, burning, swelling or itching. You may appear a little red and sore.

The MonaLisa Touch® is backed by decades of research and clinical studies comprehensively testing the safety of the laser. It is a very popular laser therapy for women’s health and has been performed hundreds of thousands of times around the globe. Manufactured by DEKA, the medical laser market leaders, the MonaLisa Touch®, unlike many other CO2 lasers is just for use on the vagina.

The treatment itself is virtually pain free. You may experience some discomfort whilst the probe is inserted.
