Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome is defined as an increase in the internal diameter of the vaginal wall. This can lead to decreased intercourse and sexual frustration for the woman and her partner. The reason for this most often is natural childbirth (especially after the second and subsequent), congenital weakness of connective tissue with advancing age and others.
Modern innovations in medicine and the drive towards increasingly non-invasive procedures have given doctors a valuable weapon – non-surgical laser treatment for vaginal tightening. Laser treatments for vaginal rejuvenation are becoming established as an affordable, non-surgical treatment method.
The Esteline Clinic offers the latest non-operative Er:Yag laser therapy for the treatment of IntimaLase® vaginal relaxation syndrome from the leading medical laser manufacturer Fotona.
The laser has a thermo-stimulating effect on the collagen of the vaginal walls, leading to restructuring and stimulation of new connective tissue synthesis. This leads to a tightening of the vaginal canal and, as a result, greater sexual satisfaction.
Treatment is short and usually involves 3 sessions over 30 days.
IntimaLase® does not use laser energy to damage tissue, so there is no recovery period, and sexual activity can resume a week after.
Esteline Dermatology Clinic works with the high-quality equipment of the leading manufacturer of lasers in the field of dermatology and aesthetics Fotona®.
