VAGINAL LASER

The rejuvenation and tightening procedures that we apply to the vagina using fractional laser are called vaginal laser. The laser is a specific form of light energy. This energy is directed with the help of mirrors and transferred to the target tissue via the transmission mechanisms of laser devices. In fractional laser technology, the energy in question is divided into smaller units, which are divided into fractions before being applied to the tissue.

The treatment procedure uses this light energy to create microscopic perforations in target tissues such as dermis and epidermis. These microperforations are identified by the organism as tissue damage, leading to the triggering of natural repair mechanisms. In this process, fibroblast cells migrate to the damaged area. Fibroblasts accelerate the regeneration and healing of tissue by promoting new collagen synthesis. In dermatological applications, this mechanism causes skin tissue to renew, tighten, tone, and wrinkles and superficial lesions decrease. In vaginal applications, renewal of the vaginal mucosa, increased collagen production in the submucosal and connective tissue, tightening and narrowing effects are observed. Laser therapies are based on these fundamental principles.
Vaginal laser is made for four different purposes. These,
• Vaginal Rejuvenation – Vaginal Tighten
• Urinary incontinence treatment
• Treatment of vaginal atrophy secondary to menopause
• Treatment of frequently recurring vaginal infections

Now that we have covered the working mechanism of the laser in detail, we can move on to laser procedures.

VAGINAL REJUVENATION – LASER VAGINAL TIGHTENING

This method stands out as an alternative method for the treatment of mild and moderate vaginal enlargements. This treatment, which is performed without the need for surgical intervention, is a short-term, painless, minimally invasive procedure with minimal complication risk.

The procedure contains the following steps:

First, the patient is placed on the examination table and a sterile speculum is placed into the vagina.
Then, a cream is applied to the inner and outer parts of the vagina for local anesthesia and this condition is waited for 10-15 minutes.
After local anesthesia, the patient is taken back to the examination table and the sterile speculum is placed again.
The inside of the vagina is wiped clean with a dry gauze.
Then, a special speculum of the laser device is placed in the vagina and the laser probe is sent forward through this speculum.
The vagina is carefully scanned at 360 degrees and the clock dial is followed.
For this treatment, the patient does not have to remain hungry or thirsty, the use of existing medications is not interrupted, and general anesthesia is not required. Pain is minimized during this procedure, which is performed with local anesthesia.

Laser vaginal tightening process takes approximately 10-15 minutes, no pain is expected afterwards, and does not require tampons or stitches. After the procedure, patients can return to daily activities immediately.

 

After treatment, it is recommended to refrain from sexual intercourse for 7 days. During this time, the vagina regenerates itself; Dark colored discharge and light bleeding are normal.

The effects of laser vaginal tightening start to be seen 3 weeks after the first procedure, and a second session is recommended 3-4 weeks after the first procedure for optimum results. The full effect is felt 2 months after the first procedure, and changes in the vagina are noticed by both male and female partners.

Narrowing is not the only advantage provided by the treatment; The main benefit is the renewal of the vaginal mucosa, increased pleasure during sexual intercourse, normalization of vaginal lubrication and improvement of the dryness problem due to atrophy.

URINARY INCONTINENCE TREATMENT

Vaginal laser treatment is also effective in patients with urinary incontinence. In this method, the anterior wall of the vagina and the bladder neck area are specifically targeted, thus providing an improvement in the problem of incontinence.

Treatment Procedure:

Treatment does not require special preparation such as fasting or dehydration.
Under local anesthesia, the same procedure as for vaginal tightening is applied to the anterior vaginal wall.
The procedure is painless and takes about 10-15 minutes
After the procedure, the patient can return to his/her daily life immediately.

Therapy Procedure:

The treatment does not require any special preparation such as fasting or dehydration.
Under local anesthesia, the same procedure as for vaginal tightening is applied to the front wall of the vagina.
The procedure is painless and takes approximately 10-15 minutes.
After the procedure, the patient can immediately return to his daily life.
After treatment, estrogen-containing creams may be administered.

Postmenopausal Atrophic Vaginitis Treatment

Vaginal laser treatment is also effective in patients with urinary incontinence. In this method, the anterior wall of the vagina and the bladder neck area are specifically targeted, thus providing an improvement in the problem of incontinence.

Treatment Procedure:

Treatment does not require special preparation such as fasting or dehydration.
Under local anesthesia, the same procedure as for vaginal tightening is applied to the anterior vaginal wall.
The procedure is painless and takes about 10-15 minutes
After the procedure, the patient can return to his/her daily life immediately.

Treatment of Frequently Recurrent Vaginal Infections

Vaginal laser treatment also has a protective effect against frequently recurring vaginal infections. This treatment aims to balance the vaginal flora and increase resistance to infections.

Treatment Procedure:

Treatment does not require special preparation such as fasting or dehydration.
Under local anesthesia, the same procedure as for vaginal tightening is applied to the anterior vaginal wall.
The procedure is painless and takes about 10-15 minutes
After the procedure, the patient can return to his/her daily life immediately.
After treatment, appropriate antibiotics may be prescribed.
