Breast Cancer and MonaLisa Touch

We understand that fighting Breast Cancer is tough on you, your body, and with that, you might have some urogynecological conditions that are of concern.

Vaginal dryness can happen after menopause — either natural menopause or early menopause brought on by breast cancer treatment. Estrogen levels drop and the membranes of the vagina get thinner, become less flexible, and produce less lubricating fluid. Sexual intercourse may be uncomfortable or even painful.

Vaginal dryness can be caused by the following breast cancer treatments:

  • chemotherapy
  • hormonal therapy:

If your breast cancer was fed by your production of estrogen, then Hormonal Replacement Therapy is not an option to help you with dryness, itching and burning associated with a lack of estrogen in your system.

We now have the technology to help you feel better and manage these symptoms with a minimum amount of time.  MonaLisa Touch® is an innovative laser procedure that delivers CO2 laser energy to the vaginal wall to promote vaginal mucosal revitalization and a return to vaginal health. The procedure is performed in an office environment without the need for anesthesia and without pain or side effects.

The MonaLisa Touch Laser has a twofold approach to treating this condition in women:

  1. Ablation —immediately contracts & removes epidermal dyschromia/damage
  2. Thermal effect —heating the upper dermis promotes collagen growth in the skin
