I had my Monalisa Touch treatment 6 days ago. I still have bad burning. How to decrease the burning?

Best cream for external comfort after MonaLisa or FemiLift
The outside of the vaginal opening and vulva is most sensitive after these treatments. The inside is rarely uncomfortable so I assume you're talking about the outer areas. These would be best handled with Silvadene ointment which is what I normally use for extensive vulvar laser ablations.
How to decrease vaginal burning after MonaLisa Touch vaginal laser treatments
Some patients experience burning in the internal vaginal area and externally for up to 2-3 weeks after the laser treatments. Besides the Aquafor, you can try some low dose vaginal steroid ointments to reduce inflammation. I would also make sure that your urine is more on the acidic side as alkaline urine will irritate the vaginal opening more. You can try taking vitamin C 500mg twice a day. If you don't improve you should go back to your doctor and have a check up and possible vaginal cultures done to make sure you don't have an infection.
Symptoms Improve with time if the vaginal opening is treated.
