MonaLisa Touch®*

Breakthrough Nonsurgical, Nonhormonal Relief From Menopause Symptoms

Many women who transition through menopause experience a natural decline in estrogen production leading to significant changes in gynecologic health. As a result of reduced estrogen levels, many women experience vaginal atrophy – thinning of vaginal tissues that leads to dryness, inflammation and burning or itching. This condition can result in painful intercourse as well as distressing urinary symptoms, which render women more susceptible to vaginal and urinary tract infections.

Until now, treatment for this unpleasant condition typically involved over-the-counter lubricants or estrogen in the form of a topical cream or oral pill. But for many women, such as breast cancer patients or those who have suffered a blood clot or stroke, hormone therapy is contraindicated. Hormone therapy can also be expensive for patients who do not have prescription benefits, and many women find the creams too messy and inconvenient to use. Thus, thousands of women have continued to suffer without any viable alternative – until now!

Gentle, Effective Laser Therapy Ends Dryness & Painful Intercourse

Advanced Women’s Healthcare of Waxahachie is excited to introduce MonaLisa Touch® – a leading edge, non-hormonal laser treatment for common menopausal symptoms such as vaginal atrophy, dryness and painful intercourse. MonaLisa Touch is an easy, well tolerated therapy that uses gentle laser energy to ablate small micro-columns of tissue within the vagina. This process leads to a rapid healing response that promotes increased collagen and elastin production, helping to restore hydration and elasticity to the vagina.

The procedure is virtually painless and requires no anesthesia. It can be conveniently performed right here in our office through a series of three separate, five-minute treatments done six weeks apart. Following the procedure, patients can return to normal activities, but should refrain from sexual activity for two or three days. Most patients experience noticeable improvement after the first treatment.

If you would like to learn more about MonaLisa Touch®, we invite you to contact us to schedule a personal consultation. See why women are calling this procedure “life changing!”
