Vaginal discomfort and pain, including dryness, and a burning sensation, may come from childbirth, menopause, or atrophic vaginitis. For instance, atrophic vaginitis, also called vaginal atrophy, is characterized by dry, thin, inflamed vaginal walls due to your body producing and releasing insufficient estrogen. Midtown East Monalisa Touch is a procedure your doctor may recommend to treat or relieve the above symptoms so that your sex life can remain at optimum. You will have to consult with your health provider to understand the full benefits you may receive from the treatment.
Subsequently, below are a few things you may need to remember about the Monalisa Touch.
How Monalisa Touch works
The Monalisa Touch treatment is done in your health provider’s office and does not involve the administration of anesthesia. During treatment, your doctor places a small device into your vagina. The device is placed in the same place you usually insert a tampon.
Your doctor will then activate the device inserted into your vagina and turn it clockwise and anti-clockwise to target almost all your vaginal tissues. The device exposes your vaginal tissues to gentle or mild laser energy for a few minutes.
Exposing your vaginal tissues to the non-surgical treatment stimulates collagen production and healing, leading to strengthened, more elastic, and better-functioning vaginal tissues.
Monalisa Touch may help relieve sexual discomfort that often causes painful sex.
The number of treatments you will need
Generally, you will be required to go for three or four sessions of Monalisa Touch treatment. After three or four treatment sessions, you will often experience significant relief from your vaginal discomfort and pain. You should go for therapy after every six weeks and touch-up treatments annually.
Although you can resume your routine activities after undergoing Monalisa Touch, your doctor may advise avoiding vaginal sex for a few days after treatment.
That gives your vaginal tissues sufficient time to react and produce estrogen to improve the function of the vaginal mucosa, which is the mucous membranes of your vagina.
Potential side effects of Monalisa Touch treatment
One of the main reasons you are likely to prefer the Monalisa Touch treatment is that it is an excellent option since it does not produce a mess in your vagina like other products you may use, like vaginal estrogen or lubricants.
Another reason you may choose the Monalisa Touch treatment is because you have a high chance of tolerating it. If you experience side effects, they are often mild to moderate and may include your vagina feeling itchy, tender, or feeling burning sensation.
The mild side effects of the Monalisa Touch treatment often disappear within a few days. You can encourage vaginal hearing and the disappearance of the side effects of the non-surgical treatment by abstaining from vaginal sex a few days after the procedure.
The Monalisa Touch treatment has various benefits, including little to no downtime, vaginal health restoration, reduction in sexual discomfort and pain, and reduced risk of urinary incontinence.
