What is Intimalase?
Intimalase is an Erbium:YAG type laser used to treat vaginal dysfunction and discomfort symptoms caused by child birth and aging. Intimalase is our therapy of choice for treating a number of conditions affecting women, such as vaginal laxity, vaginal atrophy, and vaginal prolapse.
Is Intimalase the right treatment for me?
Vaginal Laxity, Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome, Vaginal Looseness, “Loose Vagina”
After childbirth, many women experience vaginal relaxation that doesn’t improve with time. If after vaginal childbirth, you now feel little to no friction during normal intercourse and your and your partner’s pleasure is diminished, you’re probably suffering from vaginal relaxation syndrome.
Until recently, Kegel exercises and surgery were the only options available for treating vaginal relaxation.
In order to be effective, Kegel exercises must be performed correctly and consistently for some time before the results can be achieved, and in more extreme cases of overstretched vaginal walls they may not work at all.
Surgery, on the other hand, is a radical option that we’re convinced is only appropriate in the presence of excess vaginal tissue.
Intimalase works gently to help your body tighten the vaginal canal and restore natural lubrication, without surgery and faster than the exercises alone might. You and your partner can expect increased sensitivity and pleasure from intercourse after just one or two Intimalase treatments.
Vaginal Atrophy, Atrophic Vaginitis, Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause, GSM
During menopause, reduced level of estrogen in a woman’s body lead to thinning, drying, and inflammation of the vaginal walls.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is frequently prescribed to help alleviate the symptoms, however many women don’t respond well to synthetic hormones. HRT may also interfere with other medication you may be taking.
Intimalase is a non-surgical, drug-free alternative that helps restore the collagen in vaginal tissue and treat the symptoms associated with vaginal atrophy. Concerns such as vaginal dryness, burning, incontinence, laxity (looseness), and painful intercourse are diminished or even completely eliminated following Intimalase treatment.
Vaginal prolapse is a condition in which a woman’s cervix or vaginal walls lose their normal shape and sag or drop down into the vaginal canal or through the vaginal opening. This is usually caused by weakened pelvic muscles and vaginal tissue, and frequently happens after hysterectomy or menopause. Vaginal prolapse can cause a feeling of pelvic heaviness, incontinence, and may affect sexual intercourse and a woman’s self-esteem.
Intimalase can help tighten and strengthen vaginal tissue to provide greater support and lift the prolapsed part of the vagina. Unlike surgical and traditional laser treatments, Intimalase is non-invasive, doesn’t require any downtime for recovery, and is highly effective, with most women reporting improvement following an Intimalase procedure.
Intimalase is the new generation of laser vaginal rejuvenation and a safe, non-surgical alternative. It’s a non-invasive, pain-free, outpatient treatment. There’s nothing to lose with Intimalase but your discomfort.
How does it work?
Intimalase uses laser heat applied directly to the vaginal tissue to trigger the body’s natural restorative response. Over a few weeks after the treatment, your body will create new collagen within the vaginal walls. This will tighten the vaginal canal and opening, rebuild the lining, and restore natural lubrication.
What happens during and after the procedure?
No special preparation or post-op care is required. Your treatment session will take approximately 20 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.
Avoid sexual intercourse for 2 weeks after the treatment.
How many sessions will I need?
For best results, we recommend a course of two treatments.
How effective is Intimalase?
Intimalase is exceptionally successful, with 97% patient satisfaction rate. 95% of women reported that their vaginal tightness improved strongly or moderately after Intimalase.
