MonaLisa Touch for Breast Cancer Survivors
THE MONALISA TOUCH IS AN EXCELLENT OPTION FOR BREAST CANCER SURVIVORS
The MonaLisa Touch Therapy is an excellent option for breast cancer survivors who develop menopausal symptoms. The therapy is simple, performed in an office setting and takes less than 5 minutes.
Breast cancer survivors can be launched into surgical or chemical menopause earlier than other women. Until now, the only available treatments have involved adding estrogen, which can be uncomfortable, time-consuming and potentially dangerous due to added hormones.
Initial studies have noted excellent outcomes in numerous breast cancer patients with these symptoms. After receiving the initial three treatments, patients have reported lasting relief from symptoms for about a year. At that time usually one touch up treatment is required to return to a state of normal vaginal function. This may need to be repeated yearly for ongoing symptom relief.
