What about the MonaLisa Touch? Is it for me?
The "gray tsunami" has hit! Over 60 million women in the USA are menopausal. And of course with menopause comes hot flashes, insomnia, and VAGINAL DRYNESS AND PAIN WITH INTERCOURSE.
There are many treatments for the vaginal dryness and painful intercourse of menopause. Most of them involve taking systemic estrogen or using some type of vaginal preparation daily to several times a week.
MonaLisa Touch is a novel therapy that delivers gentle laser energy to the vaginal wall tissue and stimulates a healing response by generating new collagen, elastin and vascularization. It is the same technology that is used for laser facial resurfacing. The treatments are 6 weeks apart and then repeated on an annual basis to maintain the benefits of treatment.

HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT
At our office, you are initially evaluated by an experienced, board certified gynecologist who is a member of the International Society for the Study of Vulvar Disease. This allows us to determine if your symptoms are due to menopause or are the result of some other medical condition. Dr. Bergmann has been a national lecturer for nearly every medication currently approved to reverse the vaginal effects of menopause and is an expert in vaginal and vulvar health.
As our goal is your health and resolution of your vulvar and vaginal symptoms. We do not limit patients to the usual 3 treatments in their package price, but will do as many as 5 in order to give you the best results. We also use other medications as needed to improve your vaginal and vulvar health until the treatments taking full effect.
As someone who is both menopausal and a cancer survivor, Dr Bergmann is particularly attuned to the issues facing women who have these conditions and wish to preserve their vaginal and vulvar health as well as their sexuality.
