What is Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome?

Vaginal relaxation syndrome is a common condition that affects millions of women. It occurs when the vagina starts to lose its original structure due to stretching or loosening of tissue in the area. It usually happens due to overstretching that takes place during childbirth or as the natural result of aging. Typically, the effects of VRS are not dangerous, but they may include loss of self-esteem as well as a reduction in sexual satisfaction.

There are several remedies for VRS, including surgical options. However, not every potential patient is interested in undergoing a surgical process. For these patients, modern laser technology provides another path: IntimaLase®. This is a new and highly effective non-surgical laser treatment specifically designed for VRS.

What is IntimaLase®?

This is a revolutionary laser therapy technique for the non-invasive tightening of the vaginal canal. It uses a photo-thermal approach, meaning it uses focused light beams to create warmth in the targeted areas, which prompts greater production of collagen. It is an effective, safe, and very well-regarded anti-aging technique.

What are the Benefits of Treatment?

This treatment is designed to be extremely quick and easy. There is no anesthesia required, so there is no drowsiness or need to stay for a long period of time. Patients can arrive for the treatment and leave the same day. There are no incisions, and no surgical operations are necessary.

According to one study, treated patients give IntimaLase® a very high 97% satisfaction rating. Patients also have found that their overall confidence and self-esteem is boosted. In addition, overall happiness and sexual pleasure may be increased as a result of this unique therapy.

How Does It Work?

IntimaLase® delivers sophisticated laser pulses to target tissue in the vagina and vulva. These laser pulses heat the lower layers of the skin just enough to trigger collagen growth in the skin. Collagen is an important connective protein that exists naturally and promotes the strength of the skin. In aging, most people lose collagen, but when new collagen is added to the skin, it has a firming and tightening effect. The process is known as collagen neogenesis.

It’s important to note that individual results can vary. During a consultation, you can get a better idea of what the treatment can do for you.
