Menopause is a transition. It is related to a gradual reduction of serum estrogen levels. It is not any single point in time; it occurs gradually over several years. Although menopause is defined as 1 year without a period, the absence of periods is only one of a myriad of changes which affect women. Hot flashes, weight gain, changes in libido, and sleep disturbances accompany this transition. However, one of the most significant symptoms is the development of vaginal dryness and a deterioration of vaginal health. As estrogen levels decrease vaginal dryness begins and many women experience painful sex and/or vaginal burning. Anywhere from 40-60% of women notice these changes.
How do we improve vaginal health and painful sex? The easiest way is to replace the loss of estrogen. Yet many women are frightened of doing this because of the fear of developing cancer.

The laser helps to generate a new blood supply and stimulate collagen production in the vaginal wall. As a result, there's an increase in elasticity and lubrication of the vaginal tissue.
