Vaginal atrophy from estrogen deficiency results in many changes in the vagina that result in decreased elasticity, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, and more frequent vaginal and urinary tract infections to mention a few. Restoring the vaginal tissue to a healthier state, which is the premise behind the vaginal laser therapy, will create healthier vaginal tissue as the laser stimulates the production of more collagen, elasticity, and blood flow to the vagina. This healthier tissue creates a more stable chemistry, or pH, and hence the reduction of vaginal and urinary tract infections. Yeast is a common vaginal pathogen that will overgrow as the chemistry of the vagina is altered, this can be from atrophy, antibiotics, and endocrine disorders (ie diabetes) that alter the function of normal cells. I can speak for the laser therapy I perform, the MonaLisa Touch laser, and say that the vaginal changes that occur after treatment promote a healthier vagina and women have fewer infections, and report more lubrication, less dryness, increased elasticity, and are more satisfied with their sex life. Women also report less urinary incontinence, urinary tract infections, or painful urination.
