The natural ageing process and childbirth can cause changes to a woman’s pelvic floor and pelvic organs that may affect wellbeing and quality of life. Symptoms such as itchiness, dryness, incontinence and vaginal relaxation can often be uncomfortable and embarrassing, and are extremely common:

  • 40% of women suffer from some form of urinary incontinence
  • 80% of women will experience vaginal atrophy.

We now have a range of cutting-edge laser treatments that can help these issues before considering surgery. All can be delivered with no pain, no downtime and no medication.

Incontilase for urinary incontinence

Our Fotona Er:YAG non-ablative laser thermally affects the vaginal tissue, stimulating collagen remodelling and the synthesis of new collagen fibres in the region of the vestibule and urethral orifice, as well as in the area along the anterior vaginal wall. The result? Greater support to the bladder and the return of normal continence function.

A major advantage of IncontiLase is that the procedure is quick and virtually painless, with no ablation, cutting, bleeding, or sutures. Recovery is extremely quick without need for the use of analgesics or antibiotics.

Recommended treatments: Usually three sessions, six weeks then six months apart.

IntimaLase for vaginal relaxation

IntimaLase is used to treat vaginal relaxation syndrome, which is the loss of the optimum structural form of the vagina. This condition is generally associated with overstretching of the vaginal canal during childbirth, as well as with natural ageing.

Our Fotona Er:YAG non-ablative laser thermally affects the vaginal tissue, stimulating collagen remodelling and the synthesis of new collagen fibers in the vaginal mucosa tissue and collagen-rich endopelvic fascia. The final result of collagen stimulation and remodelling is tightening of the vaginal canal. As it is a non-ablative and minimally invasive procedure, discomfort is minimal and recovery is rapid. Clinical results have shown tightening of the vaginal canal, greater sexual satisfaction and significant improvement in a patient’s quality of life.

Recommended treatments: Usually three sessions, six weeks then six months apart.

Renovalase for vaginal atrophy

Vaginal dryness, irritation, itching and pain while having intercourse are all symptoms of vaginal atrophy. This is caused by shrinkage and thinning of the vaginal wall with age and decreased lubrication, all of which are more common in post-menopausal women. Previously hormone replacement therapy was required to alleviate these symptoms.

Renovalase is quick and safe, and reverses the effects of atrophy by stimulating elastin and collagen production in the vaginal wall, which improves mucosal elasticity.

Recommended treatments: Usually three sessions, six weeks then six months apart.
