IntimaLase® Vaginal Tightening


Vaginal Tightening is a broad term used in the cosmetic industry to describe a treatment or procedure that enhances the vaginal muscle tone, tightens vaginal and labial tissues, increases sexual pleasure, and often improves symptoms of stress urinary incontinence, (involuntary loss of urine with laughing, coughing, sneezing, exercising etc.)*

Using the leading-edge technology of our Fotona Laser system, results can be achieved, non-invasively, with less to no downtime and no surgery!
 

Regain vaginal tightness, sexual pleasure and restore intimacy to a more youthful form and function.

 

How does it work?
Fotona’s IntimaLase® is specifically designed for the delicate mucosal tissue and musculature structures of the vaginal canal and Vaginal Labia.
This painless, non-ablative laser uses photo thermal energy to stimulate production of collagen and elastin within the tissue. This allows for restructuring, thickening and tightening of the vaginal area which can be felt almost instantly and goes on to build improvements over the weeks and months following treatment.

Many women report an instant tightening effect after their first treatment!
 

You deserve a patient-friendly option that is safer, faster, highly effective and comfortable compared to other treatment options. Laser therapy vaginal rejuvenation can be completed in our office on a lunch break and many patients return to their daily routine immediately.

Using specialized suite of lasers by Fotona, an industry leader in laser technology, IntimaLase® is designed to gently stimulate the creation of new collagen and elastin in the treatment area, strengthening support structures, thickening the vaginal walls and increasing circulation to these areas. 

The IntimaLase® treatment is based on laser-induced thermal effects in the vaginal tissue. The final result of collagen neogenesis and remodeling is tightening of the vaginal canal and a collagen-rich endopelvic fascia.

No special preparation or post-op care is required. Your treatment session will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes and you’ll be able to return to your daily activities right away.

The procedure is pain-free. You will only feel a slight heat sensation.

Unlike other laser technologies that use fractionated CO2 lasers, Intimalase uses a non-ablative laser that doesn’t remove surface tissue, helping you avoid possible complications other lasers may cause, providing you with little to no downtime, no discharge and no discomfort after the procedure.

Sexual intercourse may be resumed 3 to 5 days after treatment.

For best results, we recommend a course of three treatments. This may vary from patient to patient. 

IntimaLase® is exceptionally successful, with 97% patient satisfaction rate. 95% of women reported that their vaginal tightness improved strongly or moderately after IntimaLase®.

IntimaLase Pre-treatment Instructions

It is prudent to follow some simple guidelines before your IntimaLase / IncontiLase treatment. These guidelines can reduce possible side effects associated with the procedure and make all the difference between a fair result and a great result.

  • Hydrate – We recommend that for seven days pre-treatment you moisturize the skin surrounding the vaginal area in the morning and evening, drink at least 8 glasses of water per day to completely hydrate your body and optimize treatment results.
  • Vaginal health screening – Have an up-to-date, normal PAP smear done within one year prior to treatment.
  • Menstruation – No active menstruation at time of treatment.
  • Shaved – Please have pubic hair fully shaved.
  • Over the Counter Medications – Avoid aspirin, Motrin and Ibuprofen for one week prior to your treatment. Inform your provider if you are taking blood thinners or regularly take aspirin or Ibuprofen.
  • Sun exposure – No tanning bed or self-tanners for 2-3 weeks prior to treatment.
  • Prescription Medications – If you have a history of Herpes breakouts, please ask your PCP to provide you with an antiviral prescription to fill and take before your appointment to decrease the risk of a herpetic outbreak. Take your first tablet 24 hours before your treatment and follow instructions on the bottle. Stop taking prescription medications that may increase the risk of bruising as instructed and in coordination with your physician.

• No anesthesia needed
• Walk-in/walk-out procedure

Multiple sessions may be required to achieve desired results. On average, 3 sessions are sufficient to drastically improve or correct mild or even moderate stress urinary incontinence (this may vary from patient to patient). No special pre-op preparations or post- op precautions are necessary. Patients can immediately return to their normal everyday activities. 
The procedure is incisionless and virtually painless, with no ablation, no cutting, no bleeding, or sutures. Recovery is extremely quick, with no downtime!
 
The IncontiLase® treatment is based on precisely controlled laser-induced thermal effects in the mucosa tissue in the region of the vestibule and urethral orifice, as well as in the area along the anterior vaginal wall.
Our IntimaLase Fotona laser technology enables the delivery of specially composed laser energy packages to the vaginal mucosa tissue and to collagen-rich endopelvic fascia, resulting in collagen neogenesis and remodeling that leads to the shrinking and tightening of irradiated tissues, and the return of normal continence function.

The procedure is similar to an intra-vaginal ultrasound. You will feel a slight warm sensation during the treatment. Each treatment session is approximately 20-30 minutes long.

An average of three sessions 4-6 weeks apart are recommended.  Additional sessions may be needed depending on the severity of your specific case.
