Today we are going to talk about a new treatment option for ladies right here in Chico, California. This exciting new service offers yet another way we can help our patients struggling with vaginal discomforts, especially those who are not able to take estrogen. The service is called MonaLisa Touch Chico, and it is now open and accepting patients.
We talk a lot about the importance of estrogen to women’s overall vitality and feelings of well-being, but today we’re going to focus on the vagina. When women’s estrogen levels drop the main issues we see are vaginal dryness, burning, itching, lack of lubrication, pain with intercourse, and urinary incontinence. These problems may become progressively worse, or they may start right after childbirth, menopause, or hysterectomy. For most women, we recommend a small dose of safe, bio-identical estrogen daily, the vagina responds, and the issues clear up pretty quickly.
Unfortunately, some women are not able to safely take estrogen. And for a long time these women had to rely on a variety of treatment methods to help their vaginal discomfort, but the treatments only tended to the side-effects and did nothing to address the actual problem. But with MonaLisa Touch we are helping to actually restore the vagina; it increases blood flow, increases elasticity, restores moisture, and increases collagen in the vaginal tissue. The treatment is painless and functional, and it only takes a few minutes.
MonaLisa Touch offers a long-lasting treatment and another way we can help our patients. Ladies are seeing a 60-70% decrease in symptoms after the first treatment alone! This service completes our care and allows us another safe option for improving lives. Come back next week as we talk more in depth about MonaLisa Touch Chico and what to expect during consultation and treatment.
