Sensitivity in the vagina that includes itching and burning can interfere with your quality of life. At MonaLisa Touch SD, OB/GYN Dr. Elise Brown and urologist Dr. Scott Brown can provide relief from these uncomfortable symptoms. If you’re a woman in La Mesa, California, or the surrounding area, call the office to learn how you can resolve vaginal burning and itching.
Uncomfortable vaginal burning and itching can be a sign of infection or a sexually transmitted disease, but in most cases, it results from inflammation and irritation of the tissue. This irritation is often due to a decrease in production of the female sex hormone known as estrogen.
You may experience a reduction in estrogen production due to many causes including:
The doctors can help you determine the cause of your vaginal burning and itching and offer proper treatment.
If an infection is the cause of your discomfort, Dr. Brown may offer antibiotics or other medications to resolve it. Other nonmedical treatments, such as the use of a vaginal lubricant, increased hydration, and cessation of douching can help reduce the vaginal itching and burning.
When a decrease in hormones is the probable cause, they recommend MonaLisa Touch® vaginal laser therapy. MonaLisa Touch provides a noninvasive, pain-free way to restore the health and strength of vaginal tissue health.
MonaLisa Touch is an in-office procedure that takes just a few minutes. The gentle laser energy emitted from the vaginal probe stimulates the production of collagen, a natural compound that boosts tissue health, vitality, and strength. The laser addresses both internal and external vaginal tissue.
When your vaginal tissue is rejuvenated, it’s more lubricated and thicker, reducing the friction and inflammation that cause itching and burning. You experience a restoration of sexual pleasure and improved vaginal health.
A total of three sessions, scheduled over the course of 18 weeks, offers the best results to women suffering from vaginal itching and burning.
It’s an excellent treatment for any woman suffering from vaginal itching and burning, and is particularly good for women who cannot undergo hormone replacement therapy due to health risks.
