CNB MEDICAL : New FDA Approved Laser Treatment for Vaginal Symptoms of Menopause

press release

APRIL 25, 2015(CNBNEWS.NET)Advocare Premier OB/GYN of South Jersey is the first gynecology practice in South Jersey and Philadelphia areas to offer MonaLisa Touch™, a minimally-invasive laser treatment for women of all ages that treats problem vaginal symptoms such as dryness, itching, irritation, burning and painful intercourse.  Vaginal atrophy, a result of decreased estrogen, affects naturally menopausal women and women who have “induced” menopause either through surgery or chemotherapy, in the case of cancer treatments.  Prior to MonaLisa Touch™, treatments were either estrogens or estrogen-like medications, or over-the-counter lubricants.  For women who do not respond to, or wish to avoid pharmaceuticals, or for women who cannot take estrogen medications due to cancer, blood clot risks, or other medical reasons, MonaLisa Touch™ offers a non-pharmaceutical, quick, safe and proven alternative treatment for their vaginal symptoms. 

 “This is a revolutionary treatment,” says Dr. Grossman, who performs this procedure in his Voorhees, NJ office.  “Our patients have reported improvement of their symptoms literally within days of the first treatment.”  According to Dr. Grossman, the procedure takes only about 5 minutes and patients can return to work or to their regular activities right away.  “There is minimal impact on their daily routine“.  MonaLisa Touch™ is performed using a special CO2 fractional laser, a technology that has been used for decades. Dr. Grossman has worked with CO2 lasers for many years in other gynecological treatments and is the first in South Jersey trained in its newest application.  

 MonaLisa Touch™ received FDA approval in late 2014 and launched in March 2015. The procedure, which is typically three treatments spaced six weeks apart, has been met with excellent results in Europe, Australia, and South America, where MonaLisa Touch™ has been performed on thousands of patients.

 With convenient office locations in Voorhees and Washington Township, New Jersey, Advocare Premier OB/GYN of South Jersey provides premier care for women, offering preventive and acute care from routine gynecologic and obstetrics services to minimally invasive surgical procedures. Co-founders and board certified physicians, Eric B. Grossman, MD, FACOG and Roberta G.
