MonaLisa Touch® Provides Life-Changing Results for Women
Physicians at Tennessee Urology provide women with relief from a decline in vaginal health utilizing the innovative MonaLisa Touch® vaginal laser therapy. This vaginal laser therapy reduces the effects of feminine aging and changes to vaginal health caused by menopause, childbirth and pregnancy, hysterectomy, and even breast cancer treatment.
Have you experienced changes in your vaginal health since menopause?
As many as 50 percent of postmenopausal women suffer from changes in their vaginal health as estrogen levels decline. Many women experience symptoms such as vaginal dryness, itching, burning or painful intercourse as they age.
Many women suffer silently, and those who seek treatment find their options limited: messy estrogen creams or hormone replacement therapy, which isn’t for everyone.
MonaLisa Touch delivers gentle laser energy to the vaginal wall tissue that stimulates a healing response by generating new collagen, elastin, and vascularization. The laser treatment is a simple procedure that takes less than five minutes in the provider’s office.
