NEW YORK, Sept. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The United Breast Cancer Foundation (UBCF) has partnered with VSPOT to help breast cancer survivors improve their quality of life by addressing some of the most common—though rarely talked about—side effects from the treatment of breast cancer.
Vaginal dryness, a frequent byproduct of chemotherapy and various medications, causes itching, burning, and painful sex. Previously, the most common treatment for vaginal dryness was topical estrogen-based therapy. This is not an option for estrogen-sensitive breast cancer survivors. Without a solution, many women felt that they had no choice other than to live with discomfort and abstain from intimacy.
Founded by award-winning entrepreneur Cindy Barshop, VSPOT specializes in FemiLift Laser procedure, a non-surgical, medication-free, pain-free treatment performed in a series of 4-5 short sessions that can eradicate vaginal dryness and its ensuing symptoms.
"The FemiLift Laser is a thermal heating system that achieves tissue regeneration throughout the vaginal canal, promoting the recovery of the genital mucosa balance in a safe and painless way," says Dr. Carolyn DeLuca, who has successfully treated breast cancer survivors with the FemiLift. "The production of collagen tightens the vaginal walls and restores tone to tissue, increasing blood flow and lubrication, and allowing women to comfortably and confidently have intimacy again."
While breast augmentation has helped countless breast cancer survivors move past the trauma of a mastectomy, VSPOT is the first viable solution for survivors suffering from vaginal dryness and its subsequent discomforts.
"The FemiLift helped me with my vaginal dryness, I no longer had the burning and itching sensation." –Bonnie H., Breast Cancer Survivor

"We are so pleased to partner with Cindy and VSPOT this October, increasing awareness of this often ignored side effect of breast cancer treatment. UBCF's goal is to reduce the stress and strain that cancer causes. Through this partnership, UBCF will continue serving the needs of our clients, from diagnosis, treatment and beyond in creating a new, healthy, joyous and rewarding life," said Stephanie Mastroianni, UBCF President and Executive Director.
