We often hear about the symptoms of pre-menopause and menopause itself, but what tends to be discussed far less often is post-menopause. Post-menopause is simply the time in a woman’s life after menopause has completed. Though many of the frustrating symptoms of menopause tend to decrease or go away completely during post-menopause, some new symptoms may arise. Over 40% of post-menopausal women experience symptoms include hot flashes, vaginal dryness, vaginal itching/burning, painful urination, painful intercourse, anxiety, depression, mood swings, lower libido, and more. While not all women will experience all of these symptoms, women may experience some of these symptoms. There are many different treatment options for the mental and emotional components of postmenopausal symptoms, but until recently, there was not an adequate or effective treatment for changes in vaginal health. MonaLisa Touch is a cutting-edge treatment that utilizes the latest technology to counteract aging vaginal mucosa and restore vaginal health.
MonaLisa Touch is revolutionizing postmenopausal symptom treatment because it is not only a minimally invasive treatment but it provides lasting, permanent results. MonaLisa Touch utilizes the most advanced photo-rejuvenation techniques and a CO2 laser source to restore trophic conditions in the vulvo-vaginal area. This targeted treatment is unlike other pharmacological therapies and will not impact your body’s overall health and wellness; it will simply treat the targeted area. Because vaginal tissue can experience loss of swelling and hydration during post-menopause, it may feel itchy, dry, or you may experience burning and pain during sexual intercourse. Thanks to MonaLisa Touch, patients no longer have to suffer in silence. MonaLisa Touch treats vaginal atrophy and the frustrating symptoms that come with it by regenerating the fibers weakened by age while inducing the production of new collagen in vaginal tissue. By doing so, the volume of the mucosa can be adjusted which reshapes it and restores hydration and elasticity without any down time or pain.
The MonaLisa Touch treatment treats postmenopausal symptoms thanks to the D-Pulse which is an impulse that has been created by DEKA that vaporizes a small part of the mucosa and spreads the precise amount of heat necessary to produce a sufficient, controlled denaturation. Then, regeneration of the tissue is stimulated without any trauma to the vaginal walls.
The MonaLisa Touch is appropriate for any female who has gone through menopause, as well as those who are experiencing post-menopausal symptoms as a result of a hysterectomy or breast cancer treatments.
Women report experiencing a relief from symptoms after the first treatment but it is recommended that 3 treatments spaced over an 18-week period be completed for optimized results.
