Estrogen-free gynecology treatment can be life-changing for women

This may be the non-hormonal medical treatment you’ve been waiting for. Millions of women experience uncomfortable, bothersome or painful gynecologic symptoms because of declining estrogen levels associated with aging. These symptoms also can occur from the side effects of medication used for cancer treatment and prevention, or from other skin conditions.

ProHealth Care now offers a safe, reliable and virtually painless laser therapy called MonaLisa Touch™. The treatment is known to improve dryness, pain and burning of vaginal tissues, dramatically relieving symptoms. The short treatments are performed in the doctor’s office without need for anesthesia.

“The secret of this therapy is that it stimulates collagen production and improves blood supply and elasticity in the tissues at a molecular level,” said ProHealth Care urogynecologist Sarit Aschkenazi, MD, who is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology and female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. “Surface and deep-tissue cells are stimulated to create a much thicker skin layer with increased blood flow, improved moisture and a thicker collagen layer. These changes promote tissue health, improve sensation and reduce dryness and pain.”
