Throughout her career, Toronto Gynaecologist Dr. Fay Weisberg has always sought out cutting-edge, state-of-the-art women’s health care. With the introduction of the MonaLisa Touch laser for the treatment of vaginal atrophy, the trend continues. Developed in Italy, this laser has scientifically been proven to change the dry, itchy and thin skin of the vagina to thick, lush and moisturized skin.
As a woman ages and no longer produces estrogen, the vagina, bladder, vulva, and urethra all change –having been reliant on estrogen for their integrity. Over 60% of menopausal women experience genitourinary atrophy, which increases in frequency long after the hot flushes and sleepless nights have been resolved.
Instead of using estrogen, the laser emits small pulses of energy that restores the blood flow to the vagina, which brings collagen cells that thicken the tissue, providing relief from: dryness, painful intercourse, foul odor and vaginal discharge, incontinence and bladder infections.
The laser is done in the office with no preparation and no downtime. The painless procedure takes about 5 minutes to perform. The typical treatment includes 3 visits that are scheduled 6 weeks apart. Many women notice a relief of most symptoms after the 1st treatment.
The laser treatments are safe, painless and have no systemic effects.
