Laser vaginal tightening - IntimaLase®

After giving birth or with advancing age the vagina loses its elasticity, so unpleasant problems may occur:

  • The vagina will be wider and looser.
  • Intimate intercourse causes less pleasure, which can result in sexual dysfunction for the patient or his/her partner.
  • Stress incontinence may develop.

Our IntimaLase® treatment, which stimulates the formation of collagen in the vaginal wall, provides a modern, painless, quick solution to this problem. As a result of the laser treatment, the tissues of the vagina are strengthened, so it becomes tighter and more flexible. The effect is immediately noticeable!

Clinical studies show that 97% of patients rated the vaginal tightening effect as positive, about 58% had improved orgasmic ability, while no adverse side effects occurred during or after the procedure.

The laser vaginal tightening process does not require special preparation. We provide our patients with outpatient treatment. In our comfortable, modern center, we welcome our patients to a discreet environment, with no waiting line.

How does the IntimaLase® work?

The thermal effect of Fotona’s Er:YAG non-ablative laser beam that operates on a 2940 nm wavelength, stimulates collagen organization and production in the vaginal canal tissues. As a result, the vaginal wall shrinks (tightens), resulting in a narrowing of the vagina.

The unique benefits of IntimaLase®

  • Safer, faster treatment. By using it, possible complications associated with traditional surgical procedures can be avoided.
  • Clinical studies demonstrate that treatment results in a tighter vaginal canal, resulting in a greater sexual experience, contributing to a significant improvement in the patient’s quality of life.
  • Does not require special preparation or aftercare.
  • Non-surgical procedure. The patient can resume daily activities immediately after treatment.
Frequently asked questions

Due to aging, pregnancies and childbirth, the walls of the vagina become lax and lose their elasticity. A feeling of spaciousness develops, and love life becomes unhappy. With intimate laser treatment, these symptoms can be treated very effectively.

There can be several reasons for vaginal laxity. For example, pregnancy and vaginal delivery puts a heavy strain on the vagina and surrounding tissues. The body’s self-healing processes are often no longer able to fully regenerate. Unfortunately, for most women, the tissues never return to the prenatal state. Another cause of vaginal laxity is menopause. During this phase, estrogen production decreases, less collagen is produced, tissues become thinner, the mucous membranes become dry, leading to excessive inflammation and vaginal looseness.

Other possible causes are mentioned in the literature. These are:

  • Severe disease, hysterectomy, chemotherapy
  • Major weight change
  • Chronic constipation
  • Chronic cough
  • Physically straining work, sport activities
  • Home activities that involve constantly lifting heavy things.

The vagina is an organ made of muscles, so if we exercise, it can become elastic again. Initially, a solution may be to perform pelvic-floor strengthening, Kegel exercises. If the symptoms do not improve, there is a possibility for surgical vaginoplasty or intimate laser treatment. During vaginoplasty, the problem is treated with surgical intervention. The most modern solution available today is laser vaginal tightening, which is a painless, fast, non-surgical procedure and the effect of which can be experienced immediately.

In our center, we use the most modern technology known for intimate laser treatments. The heat effect of the Fotona Smooth Er:YAG laser beam stimulates collagen organization and production in the tissues of the vaginal canal. As a result, the vaginal wall shrinks (tightens) and this results in a narrowing of the vagina.

The majority of patients usually begin to experience unpleasant intimate symptoms after childbirth, but in some cases, treatment can be used from the age of 18.

Before treating incontinence, it is definitely worthwhile to find out what incontinence is – with specific questions. This is because there are cases (for example, urinary incontinence due to nerve dysfunction, spine injury, side effects of medication, urge incontinence) for which laser treatment cannot be used. (In this case, other therapies are warranted.)

The literature names cases where treatment (Er: YAG laser) is not recommended. These can be:

  •  Urinary tract infections (UTI)
  • Injuries or bleeding around the tissue to be treated (vaginal vestibule and anterior vaginal wall)
  • One of the following urinary disorders:
    • excessive bladder capacity (<300 cc),
    • residue after discharge> 50 cc,
    • spasmodic bladder,
    • vesicoureteralis reflux (VUR),
    • bladder stones,
    • bladder tumors,
    • urethral stenosis and bladder neck stenosis
  • Abnormal wound formation
  • Infection or inflammation of the treated area
  • Excessive exposure to sunlight (tanned skin)
  • History of photosensitivity disorder or drug treatment with photosensitivity
  • Pregnancy
  • Irradiation of the gonads
  • Diabetes
  • Collagen and connective tissue disorders
  • Wound healing and wound formation disorders
  • Blood clotting disorders
  • Heart or lung disease
  • Vascular problems (including general circulatory disorders)
  • Endocrine disorders
  • Hypertension
  • Abnormal obesity
  • Epilepsy
  • Fever
  • Taking iron supplements or anticoagulant therapy
  • Take a medicine to treat severe acne within 6 months
  • Systemic or oral antifungal therapy within 6 months
  • Use of vasodilators
  • Gold therapy
  • Insulin-dependent diabetes (written consent of the GP is required)
  • Cancer in the area to be treated
  • Autoimmune disorders, e.g. lupus
  • Previous seizures
  • Herpes simplex infection in the treated area
  • Impossibility to display the area to be treated
  • Malignant preoperative histological finding
  • Anatomical observations inconsistent with the diagnosis

It is not allowed as the laser beam would be absorbed into the water content of the blood so that it would not reach the vaginal wall with adequate efficiency.

Tampons can be used 2-3 days after the process.

Yes, it is allowed. The mirror at the end of the laser device covers the coil, so it won’t ruin the process at all.

If you take contraceptive, please consult your doctor. Although no such complaint has been documented or received so far, several contraceptives may cause photosensitivity.

After the intimate laser treatment, it is worth avoiding bathing, swimming pool activities and sauna for 1-2 days.

The date of each treatment, including the next treatment’s date, will be chosen when consulting your doctor. The time between the two treatments may vary from individual to individual, but you should usually wait 2-4 weeks.

The effectiveness of Fotona intimate laser treatments is also proven by clinical research:

  • The vaginal tightening effect of RenovaLase® was assessed as positive by 97% of patients and their orgasmic ability was improved in 58%. On average, the vaginal canal became 17% tighter.
  • Almost 70% of IncontiLase® users are asymptomatic after 120 days. At 120 days post-treatment, 94% of patients reported significant improvement and 68% had complete cessation of urinary incontinence.

Intimate laser treatment, especially the Fotona Smooth Er:YAG laser, is a gentle, fast and painless procedure. However, like all devices and preparations used in medicine, it can have side effects. The literature names the following factors:

  • Scarring (hypertrophic, atrophic)
  • Prolonged wound healing
  • Persisting ulcerated areas
  • Bleeding
  • Mild redness of the skin that may last for a few days.
  • Surface burns, sometimes with blistering.
  • Transient hypo- or hyperpigmentation
  • Mild to moderate discomfort or pain during treatment
  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Laxity
  • Infection
  • Edema
  • Discoloration
  • Paresthesia
  • Erythema
  • Irregular contour, deformations
  • Partial skin erosion
  • Pulling feeling
  • Hemosiderin discoloration
  • More intensive vaginal discharge
  • Recurrent urinary incontinence

No preparation or aftercare is required. An exception to this is the RenovaLase® (vaginal atrophy) treatment. In case of vaginal atrophy, pre-treatment is required, as it is not possible to absorb Er:YAG when the vagina’s water content is not optional. Therefore, the vaginal moisture has to be increased before treatment. This is done with an applied estrogen formulation with a preparation time of 2-4 weeks depending on the atrophy.

No additional drug or medication shall be taken after the treatment.

An exception to this may be if a mixed type of incontinence treatment is needed, in which case an additional pharmaceutical product may be required to achieve the ideal effect, which we will determine in your personalized therapy.

Intimate laser treatment can be used 6 weeks after delivery at the earliest.

After 2-3 days, any activity can be continued (sex life, thermal water, bathing, etc.). Due to the unique non-ablative nature of the laser we use, the surface of the vagina will not be damaged.

The treatment is quick and painless. It can be done during a lunch break, there is no need to take any day off. Provided that you choose intimate laser treatment, you will not be absent from work, your daily activities and routine will not be interrupted. The treatment is not a surgical procedure, so there is no incision, no anesthesia, no bleeding, no suturing.

Fotona Smooth Er:YAG laser therapy is a patented, non-invasive, hormone-free procedure that eliminates the condition that causes unpleasant symptoms in the intimate areas (incontinence,  vaginal atrophy, vaginal relaxation syndrome, uterine prolapse).

The thermal action of Fotona’s Er:YAG non-ablative laser beam that operates on a 2940 nm wavelength, stimulates collagen organization and production in the vaginal canal tissues. As a result, the vagina’s shrinks (tightens).

Studies show that vaginal atrophy is almost 100% eliminated, vaginal comfort is increased, sex life is improved and it becomes painless. According to a recent study, RenovaLase® therapy was more effective than hormone therapy in treating vaginal atrophy.

The Intimate laser treatment usually involves two, sometimes three sessions with small breaks of 2 to 4 weeks. One process usually takes 15 minutes, during which you will not feel any discomfort or pain. Vaginal discomfort can be felt for a day or two after the procedure, which usually disappears within two days. It is not necessary to interrupt your daily routine after the treatment, and after a few days you will notice the beneficial effects.

It is a totally painless process. In some cases, which happens very rarely, patients may experience minimal discomfort feeling.

Intimate laser technology is not a surgical procedure. It requires neither preparation nor aftercare. It is very fast and painless. There is no anesthesia, incision, suture removal, nor bleeding. For the body, this is a much less stressful solution. The result is as effective as the surgical procedure’s. Studies show that vaginal dryness is almost 100% eliminated, the vaginal comfort is increased, sex life is improved and becomes painless. According to a recent study, the RenovaLase® therapy was more effective than hormone therapy in treating vaginal atrophy.

No, you don’t have to. You may feel discomfort for 1-2 days after the procedure. Due to the uniquely non-ablative laser we use, the surface of the vagina will not be damaged.

Currently, two intimate laser procedures are available in Hungary. One works with a CO2 laser and the other with Fotona Smooth Er:YAG laser technology. The Hírös Intimlézer Center uses Fotona’s patented Smooth technology with an Er:YAG laser.
Comparing the lasers, we can say that both the Er:YAG laser and the CO2 laser are ablative, but the Er:YAG laser absorbs much better in water and therefore does not burn the skin.

What really makes differences when comparing the two laser procedures available in Hungary, is the SMOOTH technology patented by Fotona, which is able to create a non-ablative gynecological laser in a way that is unique in the world. Being non-ablative means that there is no direct effect, i.e. no damage to the mucosa.

Thanks to SMOOTH technology:

  • we reach the temperature required for denaturing collagen (we work painlessly at 62-63 Celsius), but it does not burn,
  • as it is non-ablative, there is no need to fear infection due to the non-sterile nature of the vagina,
  • does not hurt, no anesthesia or preparation is required.
