When women reach a certain age, they experience changes in their bodies. Some of the most annoying and common issues include vaginal laxity, dryness, reduced sexual sensation, and urinary incontinence. As a result, women seek solutions for vaginal rejuvenation to help them feel normal sensations again and gain back the satisfaction they have lost.
Vaginal rejuvenation is a broad term used to describe a treatment that enhances vaginal muscle tone, tightens vaginal and labial tissues, increases sexual pleasure, and improves symptoms of stress urinary incontinence. Vaginal rejuvenation and especially stress urinary incontinence are issues that plague most women as they age because they have undergone childbirth or hormonal changes.
What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
The vagina is a muscle that expands and changes due to natural aging and childbirth. Unfortunately, hormonal issues can also reduce muscle strength and surrounding tissues. The relaxation of these muscles can cause problems with vaginal laxity, urinary incontinence, and dryness that lead to pain during sex or embarrassing problems when laughing, sneezing, jumping, or running. Vaginal rejuvenation can help with these core issues and help you experience a better quality of life.
Ideal candidates for the rejuvenation of vaginal tissue are women who have experienced sexual or urinary dysfunction. Using the leading-edge technology of Fotona’s IntimaLase® procedure, you can achieve impressive results that are non-invasive, have little to no downtime, and require no surgery.
What is IntimaLase®?
IntimaLase® is a revolutionary Er: YAG laser therapy for incision-less, non-invasive photothermal tightening of the vaginal canal. Clinical studies have proven that IntimaLase® is an efficient and safe procedure.IntimaLase® is designed to stimulate the creation of collagen and elastin in the treatment area. As a result, IntimaLase® strengthens support structures, thickens the vaginal walls, and increases circulation to these vital areas. In addition, IntimaLase is designed for the mucosal tissue and musculature structures of the vaginal canal and vaginal labia. This painless, non-ablative laser uses photothermal energy to stimulate collagen and elastin within the treated areas. This stimulation allows for structuring, thickening, and tightening of the vaginal areas that are felt almost instantly and intended to build improvements over time following treatment.
During the treatment, you will feel relatively little pain. You may, however, feel a slight heat sensation. Unlike other lasers that use fractionated CO2, IntimaLase® uses a non-ablative laser that does not remove surface tissue. By not removing skin tissues, you have the security of knowing you will not have complications that other lasers may cause. You will have little to no downtime, discharges, and no discomfort after the procedure. Sexual activity can be resumed three to five days later.
At least three treatments are recommended to benefit fully from the procedures. IntimaLase is successful, with a 97% patient satisfaction rate. More than 95% of women report that vaginal tightness improved strongly after their IntimaLase treatments.
A laser designed for stress urinary incontinence, IncontiLase® is an innovative and unique non-invasive laser therapy for urinary incontinence. It is based on non-ablative photothermal tensions and shrinkage of the urethral and anterior bladder wall regions. It is also a device that stimulates collagen neogenesis, shrinking and tightening of vaginal mucosa tissue, and provides greater support for the bladder.
Like IntimaLase®, IncontiLase® is efficient and very safe. It is the cure for mild and moderate stress and mixed incontinence. No anesthesia is needed, and you can walk into the clinic and walk out in under an hour.
Many patients see results after the first session. However, multiple sessions may be required to achieve desired results. Results vary from patient to patient, but the procedure is effective and relatively painless. No ablation, cutting, bleeding, or suturing is required. In addition, there is little downtime with both IntimaLase® and IncontiLase®.
Taking care of yourself after both treatments is important by avoiding activities that increase abdominal pressure and preventing trauma to the treated area.
