Have you noticed a decline in your gynecologic health lately? Are you worried about vaginal or vulvar dryness making sex uncomfortable or painful? Are you bothered by frequent or urgent urination? If so, you may be a good candidate for MonaLisa Touch treatments at Ciao Bella Medical Center & Spa in Newnan, GA. Today, we’re taking a closer look at what you can expect from this treatment, including how quickly you can expect to see an improvement in your symptoms.
How Soon Do You See Results From MonaLisa Touch?
How soon you can see MonaLisa Touch results depends on several factors, including the number of treatments you need and how far apart your treatments are scheduled. Treatment sessions are scheduled four to six weeks apart, and you should not be surprised if you need two or three treatment sessions to achieve your desired results.
If you need two sessions spaced four weeks apart, it may be around eight to 12 weeks to see your final results. This is because it can take four to six weeks for the skin in the treated area to produce enough extra collagen in response to the heat from the laser light. However, you should know that you may need five or six treatment sessions to achieve your desired results if you suffer from lichen sclerosus or another serious condition.
How Soon Will I Start to See an Improvement in My Symptoms?
You can generally expect to start seeing an improvement in your symptoms just one week after your first treatment session. In fact, 97% of people notice less vaginal dryness and less urinary problems just seven days after their first treatment session. However, you should keep in mind that it may take two to six weeks after your first session to start seeing an improvement in your symptoms.
How Soon After Treatment Can I Have Sex?
We recommend waiting two or three days after treatment before having sex. However, none of your other usual activities will be restricted. For example, you can go back to work if you want to, and you will be able to shower on the same day as your treatment.
What Can I Expect During My Treatment Session?
Before your treatment session begins, we will ensure your comfort throughout your treatment session by applying a topical numbing cream to the treatment area. Once the treatment area is numb, we will use the laser to apply heat to the area. You may feel a little bit of a vibration, but you won’t feel any pain or discomfort. Generally, treatment sessions last between five and 10 minutes.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
You may be considered a good candidate for this treatment if you suffer from medical conditions that make hormonal vaginal dryness treatments risky. For example, laser vaginal rejuvenation may be ideal if you suffer from breast cancer or have a high risk of blood clots. This treatment is also a good idea if you have tried hormone treatments in the past but suffered from uncomfortable side effects.
This is also the perfect treatment for women who suffer from regular urinary tract infections, frequent urination, or urgent urination. Furthermore, you may be considered a good candidate for this treatment if you suffer from lichen sclerosus. One of the most common symptoms of lichen sclerosus is white patches of thinning skin. Generally, these patches develop around the anus and vagina in women who are over the age of 50.
How Should I Prepare for My Treatment Session?
Due to the non-invasive nature of this treatment, you don’t have to do much to prepare. However, it’s important that the area isn’t irritated, so you should not use a depilatory cream in the area shortly before treatment.
How Long Will the Results of My Treatment Last?
It is normal to feel a little anxious about having laser vaginal rejuvenation treatments. We’d like to reiterate that your treatment area will be numb throughout the entire session. Furthermore, you should know that the results of this treatment are long-lasting. Unlike moisturizers or lubricant creams that only provide results lasting hours, you can expect the results of this treatment to last for a full year. After that, you will only need a single touch-up session.
Another benefit of this treatment is that it will save you a lot of time. You don’t need to worry about driving to the store, buying a vaginal lubricant, and applying it before you have intercourse. After this treatment, you won’t have to think about whether you have a moisturizing cream or lubricant at home. You won’t have to remember if you applied the cream. Having spontaneous sex is easier, and you will have more time in the mornings for leisure.
