Hormone changes during menopause and loss of elasticity as you age can all result in vaginal dryness, making intercourse painful and uncomfortable. At-home treatments aren’t always enough to address the issue, which is why Dr. Umaima Jamaluddin of Bakersfield, California offers MonaLisa TouchⓇ for correcting problems you may experience after menopause. Call Dr. Jamaluddin’s office or use the online booking form today to experience this noninvasive, effective vaginal rejuvenation procedure.
MonaLisa Touch is laser procedure that reverses vaginal changes usually caused by menopause.
During the treatment, Dr. Jamaluddin inserts a probe into your vagina that emits laser energy into the vaginal walls, or she directs it at your vulva or labia. The laser energy stimulates a healing response by enhancing blood flow and collagen production.
The procedure takes less than five minutes per session, and you can expect to have Dr. Jamaluddin administer approximately three treatments over 18 weeks, usually in six-week intervals. MonaLisa Touch can help with the following issues:
Dr. Jamaluddin can also provide consultations for using MonaLisa Touch to improve the color and appearance of your vulva and labia.
Unlike surgery for incontinence or vaginal rejuvenation, MonaLisa Touch requires no downtime. This in-office procedure causes minimal pain, few side effects, and requires little of your time. In fact, the consultation takes longer than the treatment itself.
Since the procedure is nonsurgical, you don’t risk contracting an infection, like with other vaginal rejuvenation procedures. And unlike surgery, there's no risk of scarring and subsequently reduced vaginal sensitivity.
You can return to work immediately after the procedure unless you have a job that would irritate the vaginal region. Depending on your occupation, you may need Dr. Jamaluddin to provide you with a written request to be put on light duty at work for a few days.
Dr. Jamaluddin advises you on proper aftercare to prevent any irritation or discomfort. For instance, you should wear a pad, rather than a tampon, after the procedure in case you have any spotting. Refrain from intercourse during the first 24 hours following the procedure.
Mild cramping is possible, but you can treat it with acetaminophen or another over-the-counter analgesic. Dr. Jamaluddin may prescribe an antibiotic ointment to apply to the area. It’s also normal to have watery or grayish discharge for up to 48 hours. Urinary symptoms are possible for the first one to two days, as well.
