Gentle Laser vaginal tightening for help with urinary incontinence and/or sexual pleasure

Have you ever leaked in your pants after jumping up and down in a dance class or while jogging?  Would you like to improve your sexual pleasure for both you and your partner?

The gynecology literature states that trauma from pregnancy and aging changes both contribute to urinary incontinence and vaginal tissue laxity in many women.

Treatment of vaginal aging and pregnancy changes does not have to involve surgery.  I am excited that we now have the laser technology to safely and gently but effectively treat vaginal tissue and skin laxity and urinary incontinence with laser.

In my office in Utah, as laser skin and tissue treatment experts we offer treatment for vaginal tissue/skin laxity and urinary incontinence with our Fotona brand Erbium:Yag laser.  Treatments take just a half hour to 45 minutes, are usually pain-free, and need to be done 1-2 times for improvement and sometimes eradication of symptoms. Even with a history of bladder prolapse this treatment is helpful.  In fact, it is often because of tissue laxity that prolapse occurs, and tissue laxity is the target of this treatment.

The Fotona Erbium:Yag laser has a variety of settings so it can be used for a variety of medical or cosmetic treatments.   For vaginal tightening we are relying on lower energy and longer pulse durations of the laser, which translates to thermal heating of the tissue dermis in order to stimulate new collagen formation.  So it is essentially controlled heating at precisely the right depth to result in tissue rejuvenation.

This treatment has already swept Europe where there are long wait times to get in, but american gynecologists are thrilled with the technological advance and have been referring their patients for this exciting treatment.
