WESTFORD, Mass., May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cynosure, Inc. (NASDAQ: CYNO) today announced the launch of a new website, SmileMonaLisa.com, which helps women find a doctor that treats vaginal health issues with an innovative non-hormonal therapy called MonaLisa Touch™.
The MonaLisa Touch™ is a fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser that is specifically designed to help restore vaginal health in post-menopausal women as well as breast cancer survivors. It was recently introduced in the U.S. after successfully treating upwards of 15,000 patients around the world. In both European and U.S. clinical trials, women reported symptom-free relief after the very first of three required treatments. The procedure is conducted in-office, virtually painless and requires no anesthesia. The MonaLisa Touch™ treatment is particularly well suited for patients who cannot, or elect not to, receive estrogen therapy.
The new website offers in-depth information on who would benefit from the MonaLisa Touch™, how it works, and what patients can expect from the treatment. Additionally, its Physician Finder Tool identifies the closest doctor who currently offers the therapy. The website is updated on a frequent basis.
"The MonaLisa Touch™ is a game-changing, clinically-proven, therapeutic laser that can help millions of women who are suffering with problems of vaginal health due to menopause," said Dr. Mickey Karram, Director of Fellowship Program on Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery, The Christ Hospital, Cincinnati, OH, who lead the U.S. clinical trial. "After menopause, whether natural or induced by breast cancer treatments or a hysterectomy, estrogen levels decline. Many women experience changes to their vaginal health that impacts their quality of life. However, studies show that only 25% of women seek help from their doctors. The SmileMonaLisa.com website makes it easy for women to understand their symptoms and find a trained physician who can offer her this safe and effective treatment."
For more information, women can ask their doctor about MonaLisa Touch™ or visit SmileMonaLisa.com to find a physician near them.
