Treatment Aimed at Postmenopausal Women and Cancer Survivors Improves Quality of Life
(DALLAS, TX April 21, 2015) — A team led by Dr. Dennis Eisenberg including Dr. Berry Fleming, Dr. David Fong and Dr. Eric Jacoby, announced today that it is offering a leading-edge treatment to resolve vaginal health issues often caused by menopause. The MonaLisa Touch®, the most recent innovation from Cynosure®, a worldwide leader in the surgical, medical and aesthetic pulsed-light and laser marketplace, is an in-office procedure that is virtually painless and requires no anesthesia. These doctors are the among the first in North Texas to offer the special fractional CO2 laser specifically designed to help postmenopausal women, breast cancer and other cancer survivors whose vaginal health deteriorated due to cancer treatment.
“Recent studies show that patients treated with the MonaLisa Touch Laser showed highly statistically significant improvement in symptoms including dryness, pain, itching, painful urination and painful intercourse after the first treatment,” says Eisenberg, a Board Certified OB/GYN with Medical Aesthetics of North Dallas located in Plano, Texas.
“Patients in the studies experienced no side effects or adverse reactions and showed an escalation of progress with each subsequent treatment. With these kinds of outcomes, the MonaLisa Touch is a game-changing procedure for my post-menopausal patients and survivors of breast and other cancers that affect the pelvic area (such as cervix, ovaries, uterus, bladder, colon or vagina) whose treatment resulted in vaginal health concerns.
In 2010, there were more than 46 million women between the ages of 50 and 80, the typical age when women are past menopause. In addition, there are approximately 250,000 breast cancer diagnoses per year – with a survival rate of nearly 90 percent at five years. That adds up to a large portion of the population likely suffering in silence from a wide array of vaginal health concerns ranging from severe discomfort to painful intercourse, impacting quality of life for females.
While some promising treatments have come to market in recent years, many fail to deliver adequate relief, and most are accompanied by severe side effects. The MonaLisa Touch performed in an office environment without the need for anesthesia and without pain or side effects. It delivers CO2 laser energy to the vaginal wall to promote vaginal mucosal revitalization and a return of vaginal health. Patients undergo three treatments spaced six weeks apart, and each treatment time is less than five minutes.
“Almost every day, I get patient questions about post-menopausal issues. MonaLisa Touch is a real breakthrough for feminine health,” Eisenberg explains. “It offers a quick and painless remedy for a medical condition that satisfies an unmet need for an effective treatment option. Traditional treatments do not always prove effective, so we are grateful to be able to offer our patients this alternative.” Medical Aesthetics of North Dallas offers financing options as this procedure doesn’t qualify for coverage by health insurance.
