The 8 Biggest Benefits of a Vaginal Laser Treatment (MonaLisa Touch)

Many women are opting to undergo a vaginal laser, making it one of the most popular office treatments in the last year. The entire procedure takes very little time, and has an incredibly low risk of possible complications.

Why Should You Want a Vaginal Laser Treatment?

Childbirth and aging can cause the loss of vaginal wall thickness, which can lead to problematic symptoms like pain with intercourse, vaginal dryness, and more.

A vaginal laser has many positive qualities that go far beyond improved sexual satisfaction, though that is an incredible benefit too. Here are some other excellent reasons why you should consider scheduling a MonaLisa Touch laser procedure:

  • It increases vaginal lubrication and decreases pain with intercourse
  • May restore tightness and functionality of the vaginal area
  • Little to no downtime
  • Treats a wide range of issues and medical conditions caused by atrophy of the vagina
  • Patients can resume regular activities extremely quickly
  • Remarkably improves your quality of life
  • The particular treatment method chosen can be customized to the individual patient and their needs
