Every woman goes through menopause, but that doesn’t mean they need to suffer in silence. When estrogen levels decline due to menopause, women experience changes in their gynecologic health including things such as intimacy concerns, dryness, urinary incontinence and vaginal atrophy. Studies show that only 25% of women seek help from their doctor, believing it’s simply part of the aging process.

Dr. David Jackson, an OB GYN at Associates in Women’s Health in Sylvania knows how common of an issue this is for women. “I hear about this all the time from menopausal women breast cancer survivors who are patients of mine.

Vaginal atrophy, which is also called atrophic vaginitis, occurs because of a decrease in estrogen, and symptoms include thinning, drying, and inflammation of the vaginal walls. According to the National Institutes of Health, there are almost 46 million postmenopausal women between the ages of 50 and 80, and there are more than 2.8 million survivors of breast cancer.

“I was looking for a solution for my patients that didn’t require hormones or messy creams and that was safe, efficacious and non-invasive. We found out about Mona Lisa Touch, a fractional CO2 laser treatment that revitalizes the cells in the vaginal mucosa (vaginal tissue) so that they make more collagen, an essential ingredient in vaginal cell health and can give women relief from the symptoms they suffer from every day. Patients undergo a series of three treatments spaced six weeks apart, and each treatment time is less than five minutes and is performed right in the physician’s office.

“Because no anesthesia is required and it’s done in our office, there is no downtime and virtually no pain or side effects, Dr. Jackson explained. “Patients notice improvement even after the first treatment”. Mona Lisa Touch is FDA approved and has been on the market since 2012.

Dr. Jackson is hosting an informational seminar about the
