Vaginal Relaxation & Atrophy
Vaginal relaxation syndrome (VRS) is defined as laxity of the vaginal wall. It can result in loss of friction and sexual satisfaction for both a woman and her partner. Vaginal atrophy refers to the thinning of the wall of the vagina that often occurs post menopause and is associated with dryness. The most common cause of vaginal relaxation is overstitching of the vaginal wall during childbirth, which can increase with the number of tissues weakest and natural aging. Vaginal atrophy normally occurs post menopause due to a lack of estrogen.
IntimaLase® is a unique, patent-pending Er:YAG laser therapy for incisionless, non-invasive photothermal tightening of the vaginal canal. Clinical studies have shown that IntimaLase is an efficient, easy-to-perform, and safe procedure.
The indication for IntimaLase is 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 aging.
How Does IntimaLase work?
- Fotona’s 2940 nm Er:YAG non-ablative laser with proprietary “smooth-mode” technology thermally affects the vaginal tissue, stimulating collagen remodeling and the synthesis of new collagen fibers in the vaginal mucosa tissue and collagen-rich endopelvic fascia.
- The final result of collagen neogenesis and remodeling is tightening of the vaginal canal.
