Fotona IntimaLase is a non-invasive laser treatment designed for vaginal rejuvenation. It uses laser energy to promote the production of collagen in the vaginal tissues, which can help to improve the tone, elasticity, and overall health of the vaginal area. This treatment can be used to address a range of concerns, including vaginal laxity, dryness, discomfort during intercourse, and urinary incontinence. Fotona IntimaLase is considered a safe and effective option for women who want to improve the health and appearance of their intimate areas without the need for surgery or downtime.

Who is this for?

Fotona IntimaLase treatment is generally recommended for women who experience vaginal laxity, dryness, discomfort during intercourse, or urinary incontinence. These conditions can occur due to a variety of factors, such as aging, hormonal changes, childbirth, or menopause.

Candidates for Fotona IntimaLase treatment should have a realistic expectation of what the procedure can achieve and be in good overall health.

Downtime

One of the benefits of Fotona IntimaLase is that there is usually no downtime required after the procedure. Most women are able to resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.

Some women may experience mild discomfort, swelling, or redness in the treated area, but these side effects are typically mild and temporary. It is generally recommended to avoid sexual activity or using tampons for a few days after the treatment to allow the tissues to heal properly.

Overall, Fotona IntimaLase is a non-invasive and relatively low-risk procedure that can be performed quickly in a medical office setting, and does not require extended downtime or recovery.

Alternative Treatments

There are various alternative treatments available for vaginal rejuvenation and addressing concerns such as vaginal laxity, dryness, discomfort during intercourse, and urinary incontinence. These treatments include:

 

  1. Plexr Plasma Pen non-surgical labiaplasty is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that uses a device that ionizes gasses in the air to create a small plasma arc that is used to treat the skin. 

  2. Radiofrequency (RF) treatment: This treatment uses RF energy to heat the vaginal tissues and stimulate collagen production, similar to Fotona IntimaLase.

  3. The O-Shot, also known as the Orgasm Shot: A non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment that involves using the patient's own blood to stimulate tissue regeneration and improve sexual function. The procedure involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient's arm, processing the blood to concentrate the platelets, and then injecting the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into the vaginal tissues.

  4. Emsella is a non-invasive medical device that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles. This technology is designed to treat urinary incontinence in women and men. The device uses electromagnetic waves to stimulate the muscles of the pelvic floor, causing them to contract and relax.

  5. Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that is designed to alter the appearance of the labia minora, the inner lips surrounding the vaginal opening. The procedure is typically performed to reduce the size or reshape the labia minora, which may cause discomfort or self-consciousness for some women.
