We are pleased to announce that the Western Montana Clinic Obstetrics & Gynecology Department is now offering a gentle, painless, laser therapy, the MonaLisa Touch.
The MonaLisa Touch is designed for postmenopausal or perimenopausal women who are suffering from changes in their vaginal health. This new treatment helps to restore changes in vaginal health that affect as many as 50% of post-menopausal women.
Many women experiencing side effects as a result of a hysterectomy or breast cancer treatments may benefit from vaginal health therapy.
This groundbreaking technology uses a gentle laser to deliver controlled energy to vaginal wall tissue. It restores vaginal health by generating new collagen, elastin and vascularization. The MonaLisa Touch procedure is quick, requires no anesthesia and no downtime.
Immediate & Lasting Results:
Three 5-minute treatments at 6 week intervals
• In-office procedure
• Minimal side effects
• No downtime
• Annual follow up treatment once a year*
* Your doctor will determine with you if follow-up treatments are required
After menopause, when estrogen levels decline, many women experience changes that can really affect their quality of life. But now there is a gentle, painless, laser therapy for women that are experiencing changes in their vaginal health. The MonaLisa Touch therapy can provide lasting relief.
