Aesthetic gyneacology Croydon
The modern woman wants to feel beautiful, attractive and self-confident at any age and in all spheres of her life. Childbearing, inevitable ageing and hormonal changes, while being a natural part of life, can unfortunately cause unpleasant gynaecological symptoms such as burning, vaginal itching, painful intercourse, dryness or vaginal atrophy. The weakening of the uterus fundus muscles and stretching of the vagina which alters the angle of the female urethra may also result in urinary incontinence. These changes can have a profound impact on a woman's daily live and intimate relationships.
How Aesthetic gyneacology in Croydon can help?
Our clinic is happy to introduce the MonaLisa Touch, an innovative fractional CO2 laser that is specifically designed for regeneration and rejuvenation of female intimate areas. Unlike other aesthetic laser gynaecological procedures available, it is the only treatment fully recognized by the international scientific community and backed up by clinical studies and international publications.
How does the MonaLisa Touch procedure work?
The procedure of Aesthetic gyneacology in Croydon is performed by placing a sterile 'insertion ring' into the vaginal opening (this is a circular device that allows the laser hand piece to be inserted and moved without rubbing against the labia). After complete insertion, the laser is fired, moved, fired again until the entire inside of the vagina has been treated. The laser pulse stimulates new collagen production in vaginal walls. It restores the correct pH and regulates the blood flow, which in consequence restores and improves the natural functions of the vagina.
Is the treatment painful?
The treatment is relatively painless. The patients might only experience slight warmness, and no anaesthesia or painkillers are required.
What gynaecological conditions does the MonaLisa Touch help with?
The procedure can alleviate symptoms associated with vaginal atrophy such as:
- vaginal itching
- vaginal dryness
- pain during intercourse
- vaginal laxity
- urinary incontinence
It can be also used for:
- labiaplasty (asymmetry of labia minora)
- rejuvenation of external organs
- removal of post-natal scars
- vaginal and anal bleaching
- reduction of stretch marks
When does the effect appear and how long does it last after Aesthetic gyneacology?
The number of treatments depends on the patient's individual condition and needs, and should be discussed with our specialist. Although we recommend 3 sessions to achieve a full therapeutic effect, many patients report to have experienced immediate beneficial effects.
In case of young women after labour, the effect is certain to last until the next pregnancy. What is more, the improved elasticity of the vagina helps to reduce damage brought about by childbirth in the future.
If the therapy is performed on women at menopausal age, a once-a-year single treatment is recommended to prevent vaginal atrophy symptoms from reoccurring. As it is better to prevent than to cure, women should not wait until unpleasant symptoms get stronger – the sooner the treatment is performed, the better effects it brings.
What is the therapy schedule?
In order to book the procedure, the patient first needs to book a consultation visit during which a gynaecological examination will be performed. The patient should also provide the results of the cytology test done within the last year.
Before the treatment of Aesthetic gyneacology in Croydon, the patient will be informed about all the aspects of the procedure, its benefits, counteractions, and possible side effects. The patient will also be asked to fill in the questionnaire and sign the official consent for the treatment.
The treatment itself takes approximately 10-15 minutes. Treatments may be repeated at the intervals of 2-4 weeks
What are the post-treatment recommendations?
After the treatment the patient may return to her daily activities. Post-treatment recommendations include refraining from:
- sexual activity (up to 7 days)
- hot baths
- lifting heavy loads
- physical effort
What are the contraindications for the procedure?
- intimate area infections
- neoplastic diseases
What are the possible adverse effects?
In some cases, slight reddening, swelling and discomfort may be observed after the treatment, but these symptoms usually disappear after approximately 1-2 days.
