Dr. Novak and Dr. Atkerson have added a leading edge treatment to their 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 2014.

"I am excited to be able to offer this treatment to my patients suffering from gynecological health problems," says Dr. Jane Atkerson

The physicians are among a selective few in San Antonio, TX to offer the special fractional CO2 laser designed to help postmenopausal women as well as breast cancer survivors.

In 2010, there were approximately 64M postmenopausal women and many of them may experience gynecologic health changes when estrogen levels decline. 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. Patients in the studies experienced minimal to no side effects or adverse reactions and showed an escalation of progress with each subsequent treatment. With these kinds of outcomes, the MonaLisa Touch is a game-changing procedure for my post-menopausal patients.”

MonaLisa Touch is a real breakthrough for feminine health. It offers a quick and virtually painless remedy for a medical condition with a large unmet need for an effective treatment option. I am grateful I am able to offer my patients this treatment.
