Vaginal Tightening Toronto has mostly been a surgical process which was referred to as vaginoplasty, which involved going under general anaesthesia, incisions, discomfort and sometimes even longer recovery. With time and technological advancement, new laser-based technologies have come up which are now used to tighten the vagina. Developed by Fotona, IntimaLase is an effective, safe and pain-free method which is increasingly becoming a popular alternative to traditional surgeries for correcting vaginal relaxation syndrome and vaginal atrophy.
What are vaginal relaxation syndrome and vaginal atrophy?
Vaginal relaxation syndrome is a condition which has symptoms of vaginal laxity and looseness due to poorly toned vaginal walls and increased diameter of the vaginal canal. It usually happens due to multiple vaginal childbirths which stretches and tears the vaginal canal.
On the other hand, vaginal atrophy usually occurs due to a decrease in the estrogen levels during menopause. This significant drop in the levels of estrogen greatly contribute to the thinning of the vaginal walls and increases vaginal dryness.
How to strengthen the pelvic muscles?
Kegels is one of the most well-known exercises for strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. The non-invasive laser treatment offers a reliable solution to restore the thinning walls of the vagina.
How does laser treatment work?
During the laser treatment, short and rapid bursts of thermal energy are directed to the targeted area which needs to be treated. The emitted wavelengths of energy produce a thermal effect in the vaginal tissues which in turn helps in the stimulation of the collagen and neogenesis along with shrinking the skin cells of the vagina which produces an overall tightening effect. It is a comfortable procedure and requires no cutting. However, some patients do experience slight burning or a warm sensation near the vaginal opening. There are no known side-effects or long-lasting post-treatment symptoms. You will notice an almost instant increase in the lubrication and vaginal tightness after undergoing the procedure.
How long does the procedure last?
Laser treatment is quite a simple procedure and lasts about 15 minutes per treatment session. There are no such pre or post-procedure requirements, so you can be expected to be out of the clinic within an hour and you would be able to get back to your daily routine in absolutely no time. It is the best option for almost every lifestyle as it has no downtime. During the procedure, a small attachment is inserted into the vagina and it has been specially designed for the delicate mucosal tissues, hence, it does not hurt.
