Breakthrough gynaecological treatment is changing lives

A NEW, non-surgical, non-hormonal treatment successfully treating a string of painful and often embarrassing symptoms associated with atrophy and wide range of women's health issues is achieving dramatic results for thousands of senior women.

Atrophy or ageing 'down below' affects about 50% of all post-menopausal women.

Despite its prevalence, many find it difficult to talk about and only 25% seek medical help.

Symptoms suffered in silence include incontinence and urinary urgency, pain during intercourse, prolapse and laxity, itchiness and burning, dryness and loss of lubrication.

Obstetrician gynaecologist Suhad Hassan introduced the MonaLisa Touch to her Gold Coast clinic earlier this year and says the results have been life-changing.

"The procedure is painless, low risk, requires no down-time and avoids many of the hassles of existing treatment options," Dr Hassan said.

"MonaLisa Touch provides an effective solution for those who have not responded to conventional treatments or those unable to use hormone replacement treatments, including breast cancer patients.

"The procedure works by stimulating the body's own regenerative processes with hundreds of pillars of laser energy. This creates more hydrated and healthy cells, improving circulation and nutrient supply and restoring the body's natural balance and function," Dr Hassan said. With over a decade of experience in women's health and seven years in private practice on the Gold Coast, Dr Hassan is excited by the treatment's ability to change lives."Symptoms can be confronting and debilitating and can place a great deal of stress on relationships." Dr. Hassan said.

"It's extremely important we open up the conversation, spread the word about this treatment and provide a comfortable, understanding, safe and nurturing environment for women to seek help."

Dr Suhad Hassan is located in the Pindara Specialist Suites in Benowa.
