Top IntimaLase® FAQ
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.
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 slight shrinkage of existing collagen and stimulation of the production of natural collagen, enabling regeneration to a pre-condition state.
How many treatment sessions are necessary?
Two to three procedures with 4-6 week intervals are standardly performed and achieve optimal results. However, some patients may require additional treatments.
How long after receiving the treatment can a woman become sexually active?
In order to achieve the best results, it is recommended that women should abstain from sexual intercourse for a period of between one to two weeks following the treatment.
