Side Effects after Breast Cancer Treatment may be Eased with the Help of MonaLisa Touch Vaginal Rejuvenation

Vaginal atrophy affects millions of women after menopause, either natural menopause from the aging process or early menopause caused by breast cancer treatment. Vaginal dryness and painful intercourse are two common breast cancer treatment side effects of chemotherapy or certain hormonal therapies. Women living in the Dallas, Plano and Frisco, Texas communities no longer have to suffer from these troublesome side effects thanks to MonaLisa Touch™ vaginal rejuvenation. MonaLisa Touch, available at Mona Lisa Partners, is a fast, safe and simple treatment designed to restore vaginal health from lower estrogen levels caused by breast cancer treatment.

Vaginal Atrophy as a Breast Cancer Treatment Side Effect

Women suffering from breast cancer who have undergone treatment may experience early menopause and vaginal atrophy. They may develop symptoms such as vaginal itching, dryness and burning that often leads to painful intercourse. These breast cancer treatment side effects are caused by estrogen deficiency in the body, and usually worsen over time.

In the past, women undergoing breast cancer treatment had to depend on hormonal treatment options and lifestyle changes to help alleviate painful vaginal breast cancer treatment side effects. Today, women have more options to help treat vaginal atrophy, such as MonaLisa Touch.

What is MonaLisa Touch™ Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment?

MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation is an in-office, non-surgical procedure developed to restore vaginal health in women who have lower estrogen levels caused by menopause or cancer treatment. MonaLisa Touch treatments are performed using a sophisticated laser system that delivers controlled CO2 energy to the vaginal tissue. The energy is then used to accelerate collagen production. Collagen is an important structure naturally found within the human body, and is critical in vaginal cell health.

MonaLisa Touch treatments are virtually pain-free and take a short amount of time to complete in an office setting. Patients can expect to receive three separate treatments, spaced six weeks apart.

MonaLisa Touch vaginal rejuvenation is a great treatment option for breast cancer patients who cannot receive estrogen therapy. Mona Lisa Partner’s Dr. Eric Jacoby says, “Unfortunately, many cancer survivors suffer needlessly from vaginal atrophy and painful intercourse. Many of these women are not eligible for estrogen and are unaware of the non-hormonal treatment options available to treat vaginal dryness, burning and painful intercourse.”

“Prescription medications, such as Osphena and over-the-counter products like Replens, can alleviate some symptoms. However, the MonaLisa Touch (MLT) laser has been found to be superior to many of the other options in our patients. The procedure is painless and takes less than 5 minutes to perform. Three treatments performed 6 weeks apart is the standard protocol. Most patients begin feeling relief shortly after the first treatment. We have had 100% satisfaction in the over 200 patients we have treated!  Non hormonal, painless, and effective makes the MonaLisa Touch laser an ideal way to treat vaginal atrophy and rekindle intimacy.”
