Restoring Your Vagina After Childbirth

While pregnancy is a wonderful time for many mothers, it can also be a very challenging time.  Part of what can take away from the magic of pregnancy and childbirth is the bodily changes that can come with the process. 

Fortunately, you don’t have to just live with the changes, especially when it comes to the pelvic region. If your vagina is lax, dry, or experiencing other uncomfortable symptoms, the MonaLisa Touch® can help. With the MonaLisa Touch, Mark P. Schumacher, MD, can restore your vaginal health, so you can fully enjoy your body — and your partner — again. 

Changes to the body during pregnancy and childbirth

A woman’s body goes through many changes during pregnancy and childbirth. Some of the unpleasant changes women can experience after childbirth include: 

For many women, some of the most troubling post-birth issues are changes to their vaginal region. After giving birth, many women experience vaginal laxity, dryness, or stretching. These changes can also lead to urinary incontinence, adding to the post-pregnancy issues. 

Vaginal rejuvenation and the MonaLisa Touch

Vaginal rejuvenation refers to any procedure that can restore vaginal tissues and relieve uncomfortable symptoms, such as vaginal itching, dryness, burning, laxity, atrophy, and painful sex. The MonaLisa Touch is an innovative vaginal rejuvenation system that was created to help women return to their prepregnancy bodies in the pelvic region.

What is the MonaLisa Touch?

The MonaLisa Touch is a laser system designed specifically to treat vaginal tissue. The laser energy stimulates the production of collagen in the tissue, triggers rehydration in the tissue, and helps reestablish vaginal mucosa.

How does the MonaLisa Touch work?

The procedure is painless and usually only lasts about five minutes. Dr. Schumacher gently inserts a probe in your vagina, and it sends laser energy into your vaginal tissue. You may feel a slight vibration, but nothing more. No downtime is needed, and you can go back to your normal routine after your treatment.

Treatment with the MonaLisa Touch can help produce healthy, strong vaginal tissue, which can equate to better urination control and less painful sex, not to mention restored body confidence and intimacy with your partner.

How good is the MonaLisa Touch?

According to one study, 90% of patients who had three MonaLisa Touch treatments experienced an improvement in vaginal laxity. Additionally, more than 80% experienced relief from itching and burning, 76% felt relief from dryness, and 72% were able to enjoy intercourse again.

This is all done without surgery and medication, making the MonaLisa Touch the best nonsurgical and nonpharmacological approach to restoring vaginal health after pregnancy and childbirth.
