Building on the success of our Therapeutic Laser for fertility protocols, we also offer Therapeutic Laser for Menopause to help women through menopause and the years leading up to it. Research into the effectiveness of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or Photobiomodulation Therapy for improved ovarian function shows that it is possible to slow down the ageing process and significantly improve production of essential sex hormones throughout perimenopause and menopause.
Therapeutic Laser for Menopause protocols apply Infrared and Near Infrared wavelengths (Red Light and Invisible Light 600-1,000nm ) which lead to enhanced mitochondrial activity and ATP production, increased blood flow and the reduction of oxidative damage.
We use a combination of Clinical Class 3b and Class 4 Therapeutic Lasers for the non-invasive application of Low Level Laser to the reproductive organs, focussing primarily on the ovaries which are the female gonads where essential sex hormones are made. We also work through the lymphatic, acupuncture and central nervous systems to apply light holistically and in the most effective way. We work with each individual to optimise their health to maximise the body’s energetic efficiency.
How can Therapeutic Laser for menopause help?
Therapeutic Laser for Menopause can improve ovarian function for the production and maintenance of sex hormones during the lead up to menopause (perimenopause) when sex hormones such as oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone naturally begin to drop. A drop in sex hormone levels in the blood can lead to a number of symptoms, which may be improved with the application of Therapeutic Laser.
Energy levels and stamina
We regularly see an increase in sex hormones after a Therapeutic Laser for Menopause treatment, which has a positive impact on energy and stamina, including sex drive. Therapeutic Laser creates a process called hormesis which is a low-dose temporary metabolic stress that leads to anti-inflammatory and antioxidant responses in the cells. Hormesis creates the same body response as exercise, which leads to an improvement in cellular health, a boost in immunological response, reduced inflammation and cell regeneration. This can also support weight loss when required, and a release of natural endorphins.
Improved circulation and skin
Therapeutic Laser also promotes angiogenesis – the production of new blood capillaries within a targeted area. As a result circulation and blood flow increases, which is great for alleviating many menopausal symptoms such as muscle and joint pain, skin laxity and even hair loss. We also encourage patients to maintain healthy diet, sleep, and exercise to support mental and emotional health throughout menopause.
Genitourinary syndrome (GSM)
A drop in oestrogen can impact vaginal tissue, leading to a condition called genitourinary syndrome (GSM) which includes itching, dryness, burning and pain during sex. Recent research suggests that Therapeutic laser for Menopause can help treat GSM because it promotes the natural stimulation and production of elastin and collagen, to strengthen the urethra and vaginal lining.
Who can receive Therapeutic Laser for menopause
Perimenopausal symptoms generally begin from 35 years and can last into the 50s, when at some point the very last menstruation defines menopause. Because this drop in the sex hormones may have an impact on cellular energy Therapeutic Laser for menopause and perimenopause can help alleviate symptoms at any stage of the process, because it can help to prolong ovarian health and the functionality of the gonads.
Recommended course of Therapeutic Laser for menopause
We recommend a course of 3 therapeutic laser treatments at weekly intervals, followed by a monthly session ongoing.
A course of 6 treatments is £1,280 | 8 treatments £1,700 | 10 treatments £2,000.
