Dr. James Ramseur has added a leading-edge treatment to his practice to resolve gynecologic health issues often caused by menopause. The MonaLisa Touch, an in-office procedure that is virtually painless and requires no anesthesia, received FDA clearance in 2014. Dr. James Ramseur is one of the first physicians in Monterey, California, to offer the special fractional CO2 laser designed to help postmenopausal women as well as breast cancer survivors.
In 2010, there were approximately 64 million post-menopausal women and many of them experienced gynecologic health changes when estrogen levels declined. In addition, there are approximately 250K breast cancer diagnoses per year – but the disease has a survival rate of nearly 90% at five years. That adds up to a large portion of our population likely suffering in silence from a wide array of gynecologic health concerns, many of which can greatly impact a woman’s quality of life.
Enter MonaLisa Touch
, the most recent innovation introduced by Cynosure®, a worldwide leader in the surgical, medical and aesthetic pulsed-light and laser marketplace. Performed in an office environment without the need for anesthesia and with virtually no pain or side effects, the MonaLisa Touch delivers fractional CO2 laser energy to the vaginal wall tissue, so cells make more collagen. Patients undergo three treatments spaced six weeks apart and each treatment time is less than five minutes
Recent studies show that patients treated with the MonaLisa Touch laser showed highly statistically significant improvement in the vaginal tissue after the first treatment.
