New treatment to alleviate menopause symptoms
An exciting new treatment for menopause symptoms has arrived at Oxford Women’s Health.
Oxford Women’s Health is the first South Island Clinic to offer, MonaLisa Touch, a quick, pain-free treatment for Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause, previously known as Vaginal Atrophy. Symptoms of Genitourinary Syndrome include genital dryness, burning, irritation, painful sex, and recurring urinary tract infections. These can occur before, during and after menopause.
More than 50,000 treatments have been performed in Australia, with patients experiencing relief from symptoms for 12-18 months. MonaLisa Touch works by stimulating the body’s regenerative processes to create more hydrated and healthy cells. Overall, it improves the health and function of the vagina. It is a non-hormonal treatment with low risk of side effects and is suitable for all ages. MonaLisa Touch can be used in conjunction with or independent of hormone therapy. It is also suitable for women who have had cancer treatment.
