An In-Depth Review of 3 Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatments 

 

As a woman, your individual journey is unique. The vaginal changes you undergo as you age, give birth, and have hormonal changes, however, are not. Thousands of women are just like you, seeking treatment options for vaginal rejuvenation. Finding out which remedy is ideal for you takes a conversation with a pelvic health professional. A comparison of three top-of-the-line treatments can help you along the way. 

MonaLisa Touch

The MonaLisa Touch is a clinically proven solution for long-term relief for common symptoms of vaginal atrophy. It can relieve symptoms such as pain during intercourse, vaginal discomfort, vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence, and discharge. It uses laser therapy to create micro-lesions in the vaginal wall, triggering vaginal rejuvenation through vaginal mucosa. MonaLisa Touch is a relatively painless procedure that doesn’t involve messy creams, surgery, or medications. It is a non-hormonal treatment option for women who have received breast cancer treatment and cannot take estrogen medications. 

The MonaLisa Touch procedure involves a probe inserted into the vagina for five minutes. The probe provides gentle laser treatment that heals the vaginal walls. The patient will feel a gentle vibrating sensation, with no anesthesia needed. There is little downtime for recovery and women can return home immediately after treatment. Recovery symptoms can include redness and swelling, lasting only a few days at most. Women who have used MonaLisa Touch for vaginal rejuvenation have reported positive changes in sexual pleasure and overall quality of life.

ThermiVa

ThermiVa treats vaginal looseness, prolapse, sexual dysfunction, urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, vaginal atrophy, and other conditions. This treatment uses radio frequency energy to heat tissue and catalyze collagen production for vaginal rejuvenation. ThermiVa works to stimulate collagen fibrils to promote tissue tightening and contracting to give you back control of your body.

Like MonaLisa Touch, ThermiVa is appropriate for women who cannot take hormone medications for symptom relief. ThermiVa does not affect hormones or involve messy creams. There is no age limit for receiving ThermiVa treatments. Treatment sessions involve 30-45 minutes of radio frequency waves, administered through a handheld wand inserted into the vagina. Patients can return to normal activities (including sexual intercourse) immediately after treatment. Most patients feel a difference after just one session.

Ultra Femme 360

The Ultra Femme 360 procedure treats sexual dysfunction, vaginal laxity, stress incontinence, vaginal dryness, and painful intercourse. It is the shortest available non-invasive treatment for vaginal rejuvenation and tightening. It comes with no downtime, surgeries, creams, or pills. During Ultra Femme 360, a physician will insert a 360-degree disposable tip into the vaginal canal. The tip will move across the length of the canal in a slow, repeating motion forward to backward. 

Ultra Femme 360 works by using radio frequency waves in 360 degrees to elevate temperature in the target tissues to over 40 degrees Celsius. The heat increases blood flow and triggers tissue rejuvenation. It is a safe procedure that does not cause discomfort. Most women receive three treatments one per week. Patients have noticed a difference after just one treatment session.
