For the twentieth year, the Mundella EveryWoman Expo recently made an impressive return to Perth which saw over 250 exhibitors educate, entice, and empower women from across the state. With the exhibition renowned for offering a wide range of products and services from appetizing cooking classes to empowering lifestyle workshops, our specialist GP’s took the opportunity to encourage conversation around prominent women’s health issues and specifically raise awareness for the Mona Lisa Touch – a non-hormonal, post-menopausal laser treatment for vaginal atrophy.
Vaginal atrophy or dryness usually occurs around the time of menopause and affects up to 50% of women. It can also affect women who have had surgically or medically induced menopause – typically women who have had treatment for cancer. Common symptoms include painful intercourse, bladder leakage, and vaginal discomfort or burning. The highly renowned non-hormonal laser treatment works by regenerating the vaginal tissue which results in increased elasticity, improved blood supply, improved lubrication, and a return of beneficial bacteria to the vagina. It is a non-invasive treatment with minimal down time.
If you would like further information on how the Mona Lisa Touch treatment could benefit you – we encourage you to book an initial consult with our specialist GP Dr. Alison Philpott, to ensure the treatment can be tailored to your symptoms.
