When you suffer from vaginal atrophy or lichen sclerosus, more than just your vagina and vulva suffers. You may experience problems with urination, itchy skin, and even sexual intimacy. These conditions can also make you more susceptible to infections. That’s why Dr. Chinyere Orafu offers vaginal rejuvenation services at the Ohio Laser & Wellness Centers in Dover, Ohio and Canton, Ohio. Her non-surgical approach can help with vulva tightening and can reduce the symptoms of vaginal atrophy.
Vaginal rejuvenation is a process that can improve the health of your vulva and vagina. It’s designed for women who have vaginal atrophy, or a thinning of the tissues in the vulva, often caused by:
Dr. Orafu also uses high the latest technology to lessen the symptoms of lichen sclerosus, an uncommon disease that affects the vulva, causing the skin to thin and develop patchy, white spots. This non-contagious condition causes the vulva and vagina to be itchy and sensitive, and it makes the skin susceptible to bruising and tearing.
With the MonaLisa TouchⓇ, Dr. Orafu uses a fractional CO2 laser to stimulate the growth of collagen, a protein that offers support to the skin, making it stronger and more elastic. Safe and effective, this treatment helps the skin of your vulva & vagina to become more hydrated and toned, establishes a healthy vaginal pH, and reduces the frequency of infections. It also increases vaginal elasticity, making sexual intercourse more pleasurable.
During your MonaLisa Touch procedure, Dr. Orafu inserts the fractional CO2 laser into your vagina, where the laser works to increase collagen production. The whole procedure lasts about five minutes and is completely pain-free.
It requires no downtime, so as soon as Dr. Orafu completes the session, you can continue with your daily activities. She does, however, ask that you refrain from sexual intercourse for two to three days after each treatment to gain maximum results and decrease the risk of infection.
While you may notice an immediate effect after your first MonaLisa Touch procedure, Dr. Orafu typically recommends three treatments, six weeks apart. This gives your vulva and vagina enough time to heal and increase collagen production, giving you the best possible benefits from the procedure.
With the MonaLisa Touch, Dr. Orafu can help with vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, and lichen sclerosis, whether they are caused by hormonal changes, surgery, or medication side effects. Contact the Ohio Laser & Wellness Centers to schedule an initial consultation, and you’re one step closer to having a healthy vagina and vulva.
