Dr. Gonzalo F. Zevallos, a local OBGYN, has added a leading edge treatment to his practice to resolve gynecological health issues often caused by menopause. The condition classically known as vaginal atrophy and now with the new name Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause causes many discomforts including burning and dryness. It is characterized by thinning, drying, loss of elasticity and inflammation of the vaginal walls that cause generalized genital area discomfort, intercourse to be painful and also contribute to problems with urination. Women that lost ovarian function at an early age due to cancer treatment or other reasons also suffer from these symptoms.
In fact, 75% of women say this condition negatively impacts their lives yet 44% never consult a gynecologist to find a solution. Alternatively, some women opt for self-prescribed creams and gels in an attempt to get some relief.
“There is no need to suffer in silence any longer,” says Dr. Zevallos. The MonaLisa Touch Laser is a revolutionary technique that offers an excellent option to resolve issues associated with vaginal atrophy and is approved by Health Canada and the FDA.
“This is a safe and painless in-office procedure that requires no anesthetic and there is no down time afterwards. In a series of just three 5-minute treatments most of my patients are extremely satisfied with their results. As a matter of fact, many women notice an improvement after their first treatment,” explains Dr. Zevallos.
The MonaLisa Touch Laser is the most recent innovation introduced by Cynosure Inc., a worldwide leader in the surgical, medical and aesthetic pulsed-light and laser marketplace. It is an Italian built device using fractional laser that activates fibroblasts to stimulate more collagen to reinstate all of the functioning of a typical younger healthy tissue.
