The MonaLisa Touch laser is used to restore and rejuvenate tissues. The procedure is non-invasive, your recovery time is minimal, and in most cases, you can have the procedure and return to your normal activities within a few days. There are few side effects, and most women report minimal discomfort after the procedure.
While it's important to wait to have sexual intercourse for at least three or four days following the treatment, the results of the procedure are long lasting. After the initial series of treatments, only one yearly treatment is needed to maintain the original results. You don't need anesthesia for this type of laser procedure.
The MonaLisa Touch procedure uses a small wand that's gently inserted into the vagina. The wand contains a laser that's rotated 360 degrees, enabling it to reach as much of the vaginal tissue as possible. The laser is also used to send energy waves deep into the tissues, where it starts to affect the tissues at a cellular level.
The energy waves rejuvenate the tissues by prompting the body to produce more collagen and elastin fibers. The creation of new fibers reinforces the tissues, strengthening them, and allowing them to regain their elasticity. More collagen is produced as a result of each treatment, causing the skin to become firmer and more resilient.
Once you've had the first series of treatments, and have started the annual maintenance program, the results of a MonaLisa Touch laser treatment can last indefinitely. Each treatment encourages the body to continue to produce collagen. Once collagen and elastin fibers have been produced, they deteriorate gradually.
As long as you continue to receive your treatment according to the yearly schedule, you can maintain your results for as long as you want. Once you discontinue the procedure, the results will gradually fade, and your vaginal tissues will eventually return to their original state before the first treatment.
