Pain Freeand comfortable
Juliet provides a gentle treatment resulting in minimal downtime and a quick recovery. What should you know before your treatment? The gynecologists at Laser Aesthetics of Maryville will prescribe a compounded anesthetic cream. Apply this on the day of treatment. Our trained staff will apply the topical anesthetic cream before your treatment. After 30 minutes, our gynecologist will insert the laser tip. This laser energy will deliver in the form of pulses. The treatment is not painful and you will only experience a mild thumping from the laser pulses.
What To Expect?
Some patients see improvement after one treatment. A series of 3 treatment may provide optimal results. Many patients start seeing results by 4 weeks. Although it may take up to 12 weeks to see complete results. After 12 weeks if you have not seen improvement, a physician will determine whether further treatments are necessary.

BEFORE: Shave your vaginal area and clean on the day of treatment. It is acceptable to have the area waxed. Avoid sun exposure and self-tanners two weeks before your appointment. If you have had a herpes outbreak in the past, you will need to treat with an anti-viral prescription. Avoid treatments that may irritate the skin 1-2 weeks before treatment.
AFTER: You may experience minor pain/discomfort post-treatment. We recommend over the counter pain medication or a cool compress. Refrain from intercourse for at least 72 hours post-treatment. Pink discharge or spotting may be present for 3-4 days post-treatment. Wash the area with a non-irritating cleanser. You also need to apply a healing ointment (such as Aquafor) until treated area has healed. Redness and swelling may occur and will resolve over time. Avoid sun exposure to the area treated. If you had your external vagina has treated, skin will be sensitive. Don’t shave or wax for a few days. You can apply 100% Aloe Vera to the outer vulva for comfort.
