Millions of people are diagnosed with cancer each year. Breast cancer affects about one in eight women in the United States alone. Here in Las Vegas, there are several resources to help cancer patients such as support groups, counseling and community fundraising and awareness.
Nevada Surgery and Cancer Care specializes in gynecological cancers and maladies, such as ovarian cancer, cervical cancer and more. NVSCC also treats cancers of the large intestine and rectum. For other cancers, such as breast or uterine, Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada (CCCN) offers compassionate treatment with a focus on a positive attitude.
For breast and gynecological cancer survivors, women can experience changes in their body, such as early menopause. Menopause is caused when the ovaries stop producing estrogen hormones. For the average woman, she can find her transition into menopause easier with the help of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). By taking supplements, her body can be weaned off the need for estrogen, minimizing symptoms of menopause like hot flashes, vaginal dryness, sleeplessness and depression. But for cancer fighters, HRT is not an option, as the appearance of estrogen in the body can cause breast cancer to return.
Therefore, women coping from chemotherapy and other cancer treatments must also undergo uncomfortable menopause symptoms. Not only has their vaginal health decreased, but their quality of life and intimate relationships take a toll when they feel pain during intercourse and self-conscious of their urinary incontinence.
FemiLift’s non-surgical, painless procedure aims to assist breast cancer survivors by treating vaginal stretching, dryness and urinary incontinence. FemiLift utilizes a wand-like laser that is inserted into the vagina and uses thermal heat to tighten and restore the tissues.
Dr. Lynn Kowalski, expert of FemiLift procedure in Las Vegas, says the procedure takes only five minutes per session, building new tissue and collagen which promotes natural lubrication production.
FemiLift is ideal for cancer survivors, or any woman that suffers a lack of self-esteem due to their declining vaginal health. FemiLift’s vaginal tightening procedure is available in Las Vegas, and Dr. Kowalski is welcoming new patients.
