An Overview of Vaginal Burning Treatment

Vaginal burning is an abnormal condition often caused by inflammation of the vaginal tissue or from lower estrogen levels during the stages of menopause. Less estrogen in the body causes the vaginal walls to become drier, thinner and less elastic, referred to as vaginal atrophy. When this occurs, many women in the Dallas, Plano and Frisco, Texas area experience burning in the vagina area, as well as other bothersome symptoms. The MonaLisa Touch™ vaginal rejuvenation system, available at Mona Lisa Partners, is a new and exciting vaginal burning treatment option that helps restore vaginal health and relieves numerous vaginal symptoms associated with menopause.

What is Vaginal Burning?

Vaginal burning is a burning sensation found in the vaginal walls, genitals or urinary tract. Since these structures are located so close together, the burning sensation may occur in any of these areas and feel like it is taking place in the vaginal tissue. The burning can vary in intensity from patient to patient and can occur suddenly or gradually over time.

Changes in hormones, especially during menopause, are one of the most common causes of the condition. When estrogen levels decrease during menopause stages, the walls of the vagina undergo many changes. The clear, thin layer of fluid that keeps the walls lubricated decreases, causing the vaginal lining to become thinner, less elastic and drier. These changes often cause women to experience vaginal burning, itching and dryness, as well as pain during intercourse and unusual bleeding or spotting.

Inflammation of the vagina, known as atrophic vaginitis, is a common condition found in women not using hormone therapy after menopause. The condition causes redness of the vaginal tissue that often leads to a burning sensation.

MonaLisa Touch™ Vaginal Rejuvenation as a Vaginal Burning Treatment

MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation treatments are fast, safe and effective. Patients experiencing vaginal burning and other symptoms associated with menopause and as a result of chemotherapy treatments can eliminate the sensations in three short, in-office sessions, spaced six weeks apart. The non-invasive, in-office, vaginal burning treatment is typically not painful and requires little downtime from normal activities.

MonaLisa Touch treats the symptoms of decreased vaginal health by generating new collagen, an essential ingredient in cell health. This is achieved by gentle, fractional CO2 laser energy with a vaginal probe. The combination of laser energy and unique pulses stimulates new collagen production that aids in healthier vaginal tissue. Some patients may experience some discomfort the first time the probe is inserted into the vaginal canal, but the treatment itself is not painful. Many patients report that it feels like a gentle vibration.
