What is IntimaLase
IntimaLase is a patent-pending, novel and unique non-invasive Er:YAG laser therapy based on incisionless, nonablative photothermal tightening of the vaginal canal. It is an efficient, easy-touse, quick and safe procedure. The indication for IntimaLase is vaginal relaxation syndrome, which is the loss of the optimum structural form of the vagina. This process is generally associated with overstretching of the vaginal canal during childbirth as well as with natural aging.
Scientifically proven clinical results
The latest scientific results presented by LAHA specialists Dr. Riviera and Dr. Fistonić clearly show noticeable improvements in vaginal tightness and sexual gratification. Assessments of the efficacy of IntimaLase treatments are based on subjective patients’ evaluations through standardized questionnaires as well as objective measurements of vaginal canal tissue shrinkage. Vaginal tightening was achieved in all patients, ranging from 3% to 28%, resulting in an average shrinkage of 17%. Measurements of sexual gratification with the McCoy Female Sexuality Questionnaire (MFSQ) showed an average improvement of 8.5 points on a 36 point scale. The fast and easy-to-perform IntimaLase treatment has proven to be an effective, non-invasive, incisionless procedure with no undesired side effects or contraindications.
How does IntimaLase work?
The IntimaLase treatment is based on laser-induced thermal effects in the vaginal tissue, stimulating collagen remodeling and the synthesis of new collagen fibers. The final result of collagen neogenesis and remodeling is tightening of the vaginal canal. The laser used in IntimaLase treatments is a 2940 nm Er:YAG with built-in proprietary technology solutions that enable delivery of specially composed laser energy packages to the vaginal mucosa tissue and to collagen-rich endopelvic fascia.
Unique advantages of IntimaLase for your patients
For most of patients, a single session is sufficient for significant tightening of the vaginal canal. If needed, the treatment may be repeated after one month. No special pre-op preparation or post-op precautions are necessary. Patients may immediately return to their normal everyday activities. The result after just a single treatment is a tightened vaginal canal, greater sexual satisfaction and significant improvement in a patient’s quality of life.
Getting started with IntimaLase
It is easy to begin offering IntimaLase treatments to your patients. Training in IntimaLase is provided through the Laser and Health Academy (www. laserandhealth.com) as a stand-alone training workshop under the guidance of experts in medical laser technology. The extensive workshop, where participants participate in live demonstrations and gain an in-depth understanding of laser physics and laser-tissue interaction, provides the needed insight into the fundamentals of the IntimaLase treatment and other procedures that can be performed with this special Er:YAG laser system.
