IntimaLase - Vaginal Tightening
White Rock Skin & Laser Clinic is happy to offer their clients the IntimaLase treatment using the Fotona. 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.
There are different lasers that treat vaginal laxity and the Fotona is the choice of the physicians at White Rock Skin & Laser Clinic. 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 region of the vestibule and urethral orifice, as well as in the area along the anterior vaginal wall. The result of collagen neogenesis and remodeling is tightening of the vaginal canal.
A consultation is booked with our physicians to start the process. The procedure and candidacy are reviewed and a series of three treatments are scheduled. The treatments are performed by a female nurse practitioner and are very well tolerated and fairly quick. The speculum is inserted and the laser adapter fits into the speculum. The laser is fired in two different modes to target tightening and collagen stimulation in the canal. The adapter is retracted to pulse every 5 mm in 5-6 passes through the canal, effectively and safely delivering bulk heating to the area. The treatment finishes with some exterior tightening.
The second treatment is performed one month later and the third can be done at the 6 or 12-month mark, depending on results. Clients love that there is no downtime though there are aftercare instructions to be followed and some mild swelling can be expected. Results can be seen as early as three days post-treatment and last 12-18 months.
