MonaLisa Touch – A life-changing treatment!
Posted on: Sep 13, 2018
From Dr. John Darpel, board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist with offices in Edgewood and Florence
Many post-menopausal women and women who have undergone treatments for breast cancer are faced with a condition called vaginal atrophy. This condition has many symptoms including discomfort with intercourse, vaginal dryness and vaginal burning. Too often, women may feel embarrassed or uncomfortable discussing these sensitive topics and suffer in silence.
For many women, MonaLisa Touch is a highly effective treatment for vaginal atrophy. Women love the ease and painlessness of the procedure. And once they see the spectacular results, they’re telling all their friends! It’s wonderful to see that women are starting to feel more comfortable discussing the symptoms of vaginal atrophy and asking their physicians for help.
During the MonaLisa Touch procedure, a probe is inserted into the vaginal canal. The probe uses a laser to create a series of tiny wounds in the vaginal tissue. The injuries then trigger a wound-healing process that causes revascularization and an increase in collagen. This in turn improves blood flow and restores collagen to pre-menopausal levels, making the vagina more elastic.
