Unless you’re on your period, pregnant, or trying to get pregnant, women may not put a lot of thought into their vaginal area. Your vaginal wellness only becomes an issue when something goes wrong and you experience pain, itching, or dryness. However, maintaining your vaginal wellness is part of taking care of your overall health and helps you prevent issues that can cause discomfort and pain.
Your vagina can be affected by hormonal changes, aging, and infection. As hormones change, such as after childbirth, you may experience dryness and discomfort.
The same can happen as you approach menopause. The tissue thins, becoming lax and dry. The result is a tender vagina that can make sexual intercourse painful.
Infections, such as bacterial vaginosis, can occur when the balance of good to bad bacteria becomes disrupted. An overgrowth of bad bacteria can also make you more susceptible to urinary tract infections and affect your sexual sensations.
At home, you can care for your vagina by avoiding douching, which disrupts your vagina’s natural ecology. Also, watch for any symptoms, such as itching or unusual discharge, which can indicate an infection. If you see warts or pimples or feel excess tissue in your vagina, it warrants a visit to the doctor as well.

The treatment stimulates the production of collagen, a natural skin-strengthening compound, to create more resilient tissue and encourage moisture production.
MonaLisa Touch treatments can lead to the restoration of healthy sexual sensation and improved confidence. The vaginal wellness enhancements provided with MonaLisa Touch include:
