»IntimaLase® has opened another window in my brain for helping my patients who were bothered by sexual dissatisfaction due to vaginal relaxation syndrome. Before the vaginal laser was invented, those women suffered both from... clinical symptoms, such as loss of sexual sensation due to vaginal loosening, as well as from a relationship crisis. Throughout the period of time I have used vaginal laser rejuvenation therapy, I have witnessed many patients repair the relationships with their partners after receiving the IntimaLase® procedure. These invisible but precious rewards keep me passionate about continuously devoting myself to this field to create more wonderful harmonic sexual relationships between couples.«

Top Doctors FAQ

Is it possible to over-tighten the vaginal canal and introitus as a consequence of IntimaLase® treatment?

This cannot be the case as the treatment results in only a slight shrinkage of existing collagen and stimulates the production of natural collagen, enabling regeneration to the pre-condition state.

How long is the learning curve in terms of becoming familiar with the Fotona SMOOTH® procedures?

The procedure is simple to learn and doctors can expect to be able to perform the procedure following a 2-day training course.

How do the Fotona SMOOTH® procedures differ from other, similar laser procedures in gynecology?

All Fotona SMOOTH® treatments are based on a patented mode of Er:YAG laser pulses that are delivered to the vaginal wall mucosa, generating controlled and optimal distribution of heat within the tissue and enabling collagen remodeling and neocollagenesis.

The 2.94 μm wavelength, in conjunction with the patented Fotona SMOOTH® mode delivery, allows for a highly controlled, safe procedure with no impact to any critical structures, including any penetration or disruption of the mucosal surface. That makes the procedures gentle and safe, without compromising effectiveness.

Are the patients required to have a gynecological examination prior to taking the treatment?

Yes, a standard gynecological examination, including a pap-smear, should be performed prior to receiving the treatment.

How long after the treatment can a patient become sexually active?

In order to achieve the best results, it is recommended that patients abstain from sexual intercourse for a period of between one to two weeks.
