It’s okay to talk about it! Millions of women are experiencing a change in their gynecological health that may interfere with their personal lives. Those seeking treatment, you are not alone. Aurora OB-GYN offers MonaLisa Touch to help you through that transition and get you back on track with your life.
If you have experienced any significant or slight change in your vaginal health after menopause, please consider this option with Dr. Allsup and Aurora OB-GYN Staff. After menopause and estrogen levels decline, this can affect your quality of life in unexpected ways.
Menopause is caused by decresed levels of estrogen production. Less estrogen makes your vaginal tissues thinner, drier with less elasticity and more fragile.
MonaLisa Touch delivers gentle laser energy to the vaginal wall tissue that stimulates a healing response in the vaginal canal. Course of treatment is typically done in three procedures over 18 weeks.
The procedure will seem similar like your regular woman annual exam. Your regular doctor or nurse practitioner at Aurora will insert the laser that “pulses” laser energy. The total procedure time is less than 5 minutes.
As many would seem nervous, this procedure is virtually painless. Please be aware, some have reported a slight discomfort with the laser tip when first inserted to deliver the first procedure. This usually occurs if there is gynecological dryness.
Many women have felt results and experienced relief right away after the first procedure. A majority of women experience relief by the second treatment.
MonaLisa Touch provides lasting results up to a year. It is recommended that a once-a-year treatment is needed to maintain symptom relief. This can usually be done quickly and conveniently during your next annual women’s exam.
