WHAT IS A VAGINAL LASER TREATMENT?
A lot of women feel very uncomfortable when it comes to discussing intimate issues with doctors. Many women aren’t aware of the various gynaecology treatments which are available for common problems faced by women regarding genitals, urinary tract and vagina. When talking about cosmetic surgeries, we always talk about how good it makes one look but we often ignore to talk about gynaecology which has the power to make a woman feel her best too.
What is Fotona Laser treatment?
Fotona Smooth Mode erbium laser is a gynaecology treatment which addresses various areas of concern. It is only one device which is used to address the problem. There is no downtime or surgery required for it. IcontiLase, IntimaLase, ProplapLase and RenovaLase are the special treatments which are available when it comes to laser treatment. Various options of treatments are provided which include non-invasive procedures for urinary stress incontinence, vaginal dryness, itching and atrophy, vaginal laxity, painful intercourse and issues of prolapse.
How does it work?
The tissues that the Fotona Smooth Mode erbium laser comes in contact with start to shrink due to controlled and pulsed heating. This stimulates the angiogenesis, new fibroblast activity and collagen production in the treatment area within 3 weeks. Over the next 6 to 8 months the collagen production starts to mature and the process of tissue tightening continues. The symptoms of stress urinary incontinence, laxity of vaginal tissue, prolapse issues and muscle atrophy can all be helped by the Fotona Laser. If you are undergoing treatment for vaginal mucosa, it would require you to go for 2 treatments having a time gap of 4 weeks between them. Prolapse or atrophy issues will need more treatments.
What happens during the consultation?
During your consultation, it will be ensured that you don’t have any contraindications for the treatments such as pregnancy, certain diseases or structural abnormalities. The gynaecologist will talk to you about the various treatment steps and what you should be expecting while you are undergoing the procedure and also during the recovery period. After undergoing the Fotona Laser session, there might be very mild swelling. Most of the times patients are able to return to their daily activities, almost immediately after having undergone the procedure. This makes the non-surgical vaginal and urinary treatment fast, convenient and popular.
When should you opt for a vaginal laser treatment?
Have you noticed any visible changes in the appearance of your labia or vagina lately? If yes, and if it is making you feel a bit self-conscious, if you have been suffering from dryness or painful intercourse or dealing with urinary leaks which have been limiting your lifestyle, then it is time to make a change and stop dealing with these problems. Book your appointment with the gynaecologist and learn about the surgical and non-surgical procedures which are available to you as options to help you get rid of the problems which you have been facing.
