Treatment for Menopause Overview
The menopause journey is full of unwanted changes when it comes to vaginal health. There is no clear beginning or ending point, but the symptoms of menopause are unmistakable. When troublesome vaginal changes begin to occur, such as dryness, burning and itching, many women seek treatment for menopause. The team at Mona Lisa Partners is available to help women living in the Plano, Frisco and Dallas, Texas area fight back against declining vaginal health with the help of the MonaLisa Touch™ system.
Common Symptoms of Menopause
No matter how hard females fight the hands of time, menopause will occur. The stages of menopause begin at different times for all women, but the average age is 51 years. The most common age range is 48-55 years. Premature menopause affects about 1% of women and begins at an age younger than 40 years.
Symptoms of menopause vary depending on what stage of the transition a woman is experiencing. The first stage is perimenopause. During this beginning stage, the body will begin letting a female know menopause is starting. Perimenopause symptoms typically include hot flashes, irregular periods, sleep disturbances, mood swings and vaginal dryness.
By the time many women enter the true stage of menopause, vaginal health is usually a top concern. As estrogen levels continue to decline between perimenopause and menopause, the vaginal tissue becomes thinner, drier, less elastic and inflamed. The change in vaginal health can cause painful intercourse and bleeding or spotting after intercourse.
Postmenopause is the final stage of menopause. Due to the continued decrease in estrogen levels during this phase, symptoms of hot flashes and vaginal dryness often linger and cause ongoing discomfort.
MonaLisa Touch™ can Help Return Vaginal Health
During and after menopause, it is important women discuss changes in their vaginal health with a physician. The symptoms of menopause have the ability to disrupt daily life, as well as a healthy sex life.
MonaLisa Touch is a non-surgical, long-term treatment for menopause designed to address vaginal changes associated with lower estrogen levels. MonaLisa Touch utilizes an innovative laser system that delivers controlled CO2 energy to the vaginal tissue. This energy revitalizes the vaginal tissue cells and helps jump-start collagen production. The additional collagen helps alleviate the painful symptoms of vaginal atrophy, such as dryness, laxity and inflammation.
