ProlapLase®

Pelvic organ prolapse treatment

Strengthening of the vaginal tissue and improvement of prolapse

  • laser treatment for pelvic organ prolapse
  • incisionless, minimally invasive
  • no anesthesia needed
  • walk-in/walk-out procedure
What is ProlapLase®?

The gentle Fotona SMOOTH® technology can also be used to treat pelvic organ prolapse. The patented Fotona SMOOTH® laser pulses are delivered through the vagina to the problematic prolapsed areas and to the whole surface of the vagina. The results of the ProlapLase® procedure are a strengthening of the tissue and a decrease in the prolapse stage. Regular ProlapLase® treatments can help to delay or even avoid more invasive procedures for pelvic organ prolapse treatment and significantly improve the quality of life in patients that choose not to have surgery.

How does ProlapLase® work?

  • photothermal tightening of the tissue and contraction of the vaginal canal, stimulating collagen remodeling and the synthesis of new collagen fibers
  • a safe and non-invasive alternative to traditional methods
  • incisionless and virtually painless, with no cutting, bleeding or sutures
  • suitable also for higher grade prolapse

Unique advantages of ProlapLase®

Depending on the severity of the prolapse, between 3 to 5 sessions of ProlapLase® with a one-month interval are sufficient to achieve significant improvement. No special pre-op preparations or post-op precautions are necessary. You can immediately return to your normal everyday activities. Additional advantages of ProlapLase® are that the procedure is incisionless and virtually painless. Recovery is extremely quick without need for the use of analgesics or antibiotics.

Ladies for Ladies

Manja, 44 years old, Europe

“As a mother of three, two of my deliveries were very difficult, assisted with a vacuum. My troubles with incontinence started three years ago, one year after the birth of my last child. A couple of years ago I started... running to relax from work stress, and that is when the troubles really started. Whenever I didn’t have a completely empty bladder, I began leaking, so I decided to start wearing pads. I talked to my friends and many also complained about this problem, so I came to terms with it for some time. But it was bothering me more and more. I knew that there were some drastic treatment options such as surgery, but I chose not to even think about it. A year ago I read an article about a non-invasive laser treatment and became curious. I contacted a doctor to find out more about it. The non-invasiveness of the procedure persuaded me and I decided to try it. After one treatment I didn’t have to wear pads any more. After the second treatment, I was completely dry and an infection that had previously bothered me was now gone. But not only that, I also discovered that sensations during sexual intercourse became much more intense than before. I was so happy with the procedure that I decided to speak publicly about it so that other women with the same problem will know that there are some excellent new solutions for incontinence available.”

Irena, 33 years old, Europe

“Since I was always an active type I wanted to maintain the same lifestyle after two deliveries. I play tennis and run a lot. Due to leakage of urine, I used to wear pads day and night. I was diagnosed with stress urinary... incontinence, but by any standards my problem is not adequate for an operation. Kegel exercises, despite consistency, did not help. I read about the laser therapy in a women’s magazine. Six weeks after the procedure I was completely dry. Summer is coming and I cannot believe I have freed myself from the eternal pads!”

Brenda, 59 years old, North America

“I had a mild problem with leaking urine and I’ve experienced a decline in libido. Six months ago I had laser treatment for vaginal laxity. I was surprised at how quick and painless the procedure was. Moreover, I noticed... the difference immediately as I walked around town and went to lunch! After the surgery, I was advised to abstain from sexual intercourse for two weeks. Waiting has paid off! My libido and sensation during intercourse have been restored in a sense that is better than ever. Even orgasms are stronger and longer. The problem with urine leakage has completely disappeared.”

Top ProlapLase® FAQ

Can the ProlapLase® treatment be performed in cases of severe pelvic organ prolapse?

Yes, we can expect some degree of improvement in most cases and this may postpone the need for a surgical procedure. In many severe cases surgery is the only option.

How do the Fotona SMOOTH® treatments work?

The treatments work by stimulating the body’s own regenerative potential. Laser pulses are delivered to the tissue in an optimal, patented laser mode that produces gentle heat pulses in the vaginal mucosal lining, stimulating the formation of new collagen and strengthening vaginal wall support.

Are the results permanent?

The results have been shown to be stable up to 18 months post-treatment. After this they start to slowly diminish. A maintenance treatment of one session per year is thus advised after the initial series of sessions to achieve lasting optimal results.

Are there any age-limitations for the treatments?

The treatments are recommended for adult women of all ages. The effectiveness of the treatment may be reduced with advanced age due to the decreased capacity of the body’s natural regeneration process, which is the mechanism behind the Fotona SMOOTH® procedures.

Can women who are going through menopause have the treatment?

Yes, menopausal women can have the treatment. In the case of severe dryness and irritation, it is recommended to first start with the RenovaLase® treatment, which has been specially developed to treat the symptoms of genitourinary syndrome of menopause. This can then be followed up with treatments for stress urinary incontinence or prolapse, if needed.
