Top RenovaLase® FAQ
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.
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.
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.
How soon should I expect results after having the procedure?
Although improvement of symptoms is usually noticed already a few days after the procedure, optimal results start to show one month to six weeks after the initial treatments, as the effects are due to the formation of new collagen in the treated tissue.
