Are Intima treatments painful?

Thank you for your question.  The in-office procedure is virtually painless, requires no anesthesia and typically takes around 15 minutes to treat both internally and externally.

Intima treatment can be done with numbing cream

Hi.  The inside of the vagina is not painful.  However if the treatment is being done for vaginal atrophy, the opening may be narrow.  In this case, the numbing cream really helps to enter the vaginal canal.  Once the treatment is initiated, the treatment is very well tolerated.

there is no discomfort with treating the internal genitalia with the device. I will use topical numbing cream however to treat the external genitalia.
