Childbirth can take a major toll on your vagina, partly as a result of hormonal changes that take place during and after pregnancy and partly from the stretching involved in vaginal delivery. After childbirth, many women notice unwelcome changes in their vagina, including a loss of elasticity, vaginal dryness, and a “stretched-out” appearance of the external tissues around the vagina. All these issues can have a major impact on sexual enjoyment, for both women and their partners. And they can also make women feel less confident and less attractive.

At Gardena Women’s Center, we specialize in helping women stay healthy and feel their best after childbirth with two types of vaginal rejuvenation treatments designed specifically for women’s needs.

Benefits of vaginal rejuvenation

Vaginal rejuvenation uses focused energy to promote natural changes inside the vagina, helping the vagina repair itself while restoring elasticity and tone. And it does all that without surgery and without hormone therapy. The key is collagen production. Your vaginal tissues contain collagen, a building block of healthy tissue that groups together to form strong networks. These networks help keep the vagina resilient and firm. After childbirth, hormonal changes can decrease your collagen production. Even when collagen levels return to normal, collagen fibers still might not be numerous enough to repair the damage from pregnancy and birth.

Vaginal rejuvenation works to jump-start collagen production. As your body produces more collagen, it works to rebuild and restore areas of damage so your vagina is firmer and more elastic. Plus, vaginal rejuvenation helps restore natural lubrication inside your vagina, eliminating vaginal dryness and making intercourse more comfortable. Depending on the type of treatment you choose, rejuvenation can even improve the way your vagina looks.

As great as it is for treating vaginal problems that occur after childbirth, vaginal rejuvenation isn’t just for women of childbearing years. It’s also very effective for women in or near menopause when a decline in estrogen can cause vaginal laxity, painful dryness, and urinary incontinence.

MonaLisa Touch®

The MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation system uses a special wand-shaped device to deliver gentle pulses of laser energy to the tissues of your vaginal canal. The highly-focused CO2 laser energy creates tiny areas of controlled damage inside the tissues of your vagina, prompting your body to start producing collagen. As collagen develops, it forms a network of fibers that increases firmness and “rebuilds” damaged areas of tissue. Most women have a series of three or more treatments spaced about four weeks apart to help restore the vagina and improve its elasticity as well as its appearance. Once your treatment is complete, you’ll start noticing improvements right away, with optimal improvements occurring over the following weeks as collagen growth and development takes place.

TempSure Vitalia®

TempSure Vitalia works in a similar way, but it uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to rejuvenate and rebuild the tissues inside your vagina. The radiofrequency energy gently heats up internal and external tissues, including the tissues of your labia (the external lips), improving circulation and ramping up collagen production. As with the MonaLisa Touch, most women benefit from a series of treatments, and each treatment takes about 30 minutes.
