Does anyone have any knowledge/thoughts on Mona Lisa Touch procedure? I'm perimenopausal & considering this procedure. I'm overwhelmed with so many things, but would like to try this as it sounds like it might improve my quality of life some (not fixing the Lyme, of course... which is causing my worst issues).

is it known to work?

If you want another option - you can do the Vagifem.

It's a very very low dose estrogen (10 mcg) to the 'site'. Does not change estrogen levels in the blood.
3X per week.
I haven't researched it...but it's apparently the 'bioidentical' estrogen.

In comparison, the daily topical estrogen used for menopause symptoms is .75 mg which is 750 mcg.

I saw a report on it on Fox News awhile back. They said the possible side effects only lasted a few days and there was no long term side effects.

Any kind of cancer in your family at all and I would stay away from any estrogen.
