MonaLisa Touch ™ in gynecology
The interest and demand for aesthetic gynecology treatments is constantly growing. Patients report various problems, including: urinary incontinence, deformities of internal or external intimate organs, postpartum scars, hemorrhoids, and unsatisfactory sex life. MonaLisa Touch ™ laser treatments significantly increase the comfort of women’s life in terms of functionality and aesthetics.
MonaLisa Touch ™ treatments are distinguished by complete or slight invasiveness and minimal or no recovery period.
Natural childbirth, especially the next one, may cause the vaginal tissues to relax, leading to vaginal relaxation syndrome. This can reduce the satisfaction with sex. It also happens that after childbirth the bladder refuses to obey and the young mother has trouble holding urine.
The treatment using the MonaLisa Touch ™ laser, considered one of the most effective and safe, helps to regain the elasticity of the vagina, reduce its size and improve hydration. The laser energy heats the vaginal mucosa and the collagen contained in its tissues. Under the influence of high temperature, collagen fibers contract and new ones appear, which stimulates the vagina to regenerate itself. The vagina becomes tighter and more flexible.
This is the period when women’s intimate organs are subject to aging. It is associated with a decrease in estrogen levels. Up to 50% of postmenopausal women complain of the typical symptoms of genital atrophy, such as vaginal dryness, pain during sexual intercourse, irritation manifested by itching and burning, stress incontinence, and vaginal relaxation syndrome. These symptoms reduce sexual experiences and satisfaction as well as lower the quality of life and mental well-being.
The MonaLisa Touch ™ treatment provides shrinkage of the vagina, reconstruction of the mucosa and reduction of the problem of urinary incontinence without surgical intervention. Controlled laser energy is delivered to the vaginal canal and the vaginal opening area. It “warms” the vaginal tissues, shrinks the collagen in the tissue, which causes contraction and shrinkage of the irradiated vaginal mucosa. It becomes tighter, more flexible and compact.
The problem of urinary incontinence
Urinary incontinence is an embarrassing problem and is therefore often overlooked. The problem of stress urinary incontinence is usually caused by weakening of the pelvic floor muscles and stretching of the vagina, which changes the angle of the urethra. There are two types of stress NTM that often coexist: anatomical (excessive mobility of the bladder and urethra),
sphincter (weakness of the urethral sphincter muscle)
The MonaLisa Touch ™ method of laser treatment of urinary incontinence is a photothermal, non-ablative vaginal contraction. The laser strengthens the vaginal walls, the intra-pelvic fascia and the area of the urethra. The laser beam stimulates the collagen fibers of the mucosa, which in turn leads to their multiplication and strengthening. The treated tissues contract, which reduces the angle of the urethra and restores its normal functionality.
MonaLisa Touch ™ laser treatments are performed using a special tip equipped with a scanner, which is inserted into the vagina. The laser acts directly on the vaginal walls or the labia. It comes to the so-called photothermal, non-ablative tension and vaginal contraction. As a result of the laser’s action, collagen is stimulated in the mucosa. The vagina becomes more flexible and compact. Thanks to the reconstruction of the walls, the functionality and aesthetics of the vagina before childbirth or menopause are restored, the level of hydration increases. The treatment also treats the problem of stress urinary incontinence. As a result, the patient experiences a significant improvement in the quality of life also in all its aspects.
The treatments do not require preparation, a consultation with a gynecologist and an important pap smear is enough. They are completely painless and only take a few minutes. Already three days after the procedure, the patient can return to sexual activity. The patient’s individual needs determine the number of treatments performed. Sometimes a one-time procedure is enough to achieve a satisfactory result. In other cases, the treatment should be repeated 2 to 4 times at intervals of 2 to 4 weeks.
Aesthetic correction of intimate external organs.
Too large or asymmetrical labia are a common aesthetic problem for women and can cause discomfort related to daily functioning, sports and sexual activity. Corrective treatments performed using the laser method are becoming more and more popular.
Laser treatments MonaLisa Touch ™ relatively achieve much better results than those carried out with a scalpel. The laser stimulates tissue coagulation so that no bleeding occurs. This reduces the risk of postoperative scars, reduces swelling of the treatment area and discomfort after the procedure, and dramatically shortens the recovery time. The laser not only models the external intimate areas of a woman’s body, but also increases the firmness and elasticity of the tissue by stimulating the production of collagen.
This treatment is performed in both very young and mature women. Restoring the aesthetics of the intimate area significantly improves the patient’s well-being and her self-esteem. Physiological and functional factors are equally important and improve the comfort of a woman’s life.
The labiaplasty procedure is performed in cooperation with the Nowe Orłowo Medical Center.
