Laser technology can be used to stimulate fibro blast activity, which promotes the regeneration of collagen, leading to improvement in the elasticity of the vaginal mucosa. This is particularly important after menopause, as the mucosa becomes dehydrated and under nourished. Some women may use local hormonal vaginal treatments to help with post-menopausal symptoms, however laser provides a viable alternative.
Laser treatments can help:
- Vaginal dryness,
- Pain or discomfort during intercourse,
- Vaginal laxity, and
- Urinary incontinence and urgency.
Typically 2-3 treatments, one month apart, will achieve optimal results. Treatments can be repeated if/when symptoms return.
This treatment has no associated down time.
