IntimaLase

Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Tightening

Innovations in laser technology have produced a unique vaginal tightening treatment that is painless, non-invasive, and non-surgical. While many vaginoplasties performed at the clinic make use of laser technology, IntimaLase™ is unique in using a specialized non-ablative er:YAG laser, which emits infrared light and does not break the skin, allowing for a much more targeted, precise, and effective treatment with little to no risk of scarring, bleeding, or infection. Because er:YAG lasers are safe and relatively gentle, they are employed in a number of other medical applications, such as facial resurfacing procedures, where they are used to remove scars and dark spots, and dentistry procedures, where they are used to remove tooth decay in place of a traditional drill.

Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Tightening is Quick & Effective

Non-surgical laser vaginal tightening is taking no more than 30 minutes, and requiring no pre- or post-operative care or recovery time. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after the treatment. Like traditional vaginoplasty, non-surgical vaginal tightening is designed to tighten the vaginal walls, but does not make use of incisions or sutures, virtually eliminating associated risks. Most patients report almost no discomfort, other than a warming sensation, and there is usually no need for even local anaesthesia.

How Does IntimaLase™ Work?

IntimaLase™lasers are photo thermal, meaning that they use intensely concentrated light pulses, which produce heat in place of traditional incisions. Using proprietary “smooth mode” technology, the lasers work by causing a momentary heating of the collagen in the vaginal tissue, stimulating a sudden contraction. This shortens and thickens muscle fibres and tightens the vaginal walls, as well as stimulating collagen remodelling and the synthesis of new collagen fibres, making vaginal tissue naturally tighter and more elastic in the long-term following a non-surgical vaginal tightening procedure.

IntimaLase™technology was originally designed to treat urinary incontinence, and while this may be an added benefit to the procedure, it is also an option for women who have simply lost sensitivity during sexual intercourse as a result of reduced friction. Tightening the vaginal canal could restore some of this lost sensitivity and improve sexual satisfaction for women and their partners. Non-surgical laser vaginal tightening provides many of the same benefits of traditional vaginoplasty surgeries, but assumes almost none of the risks. It is a safe, effective treatment that has been certified by Health Canada. Another benefit of a non-surgical approach is that many surgery-related costs, such as the use of an anesthesiologist and operating room, are eliminated, which could greatly reduce the cost of treatment. Patients can normally resume sexual activity within about a week.

What to Expect After Treatment

While non-surgical laser vaginal tightening cannot perform the full extent of repair possible with a surgical vaginoplasty, for many women it is sufficiently effective to make a real change in their sensations of vaginal tightness. A recent study conducted on the safety and efficacy of IntimaLase™non-surgical vaginal tightening reports that 95% of women and 85% of their partners experienced moderate to strong improvement in vaginal tightness, and 95% of patients reported greater sexual satisfaction.

Non-Surgical Laser Vaginal Tightening FAQ

What is the difference between non-surgical vaginal tightening and vaginoplasty?
While vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that uses scalpels or lasers to make incisions, Intimalase is a non-surgical, non-invasive vaginal tightening procedure that uses specialized laser technology to tighten the vaginal muscles without the use of incisions or sutures.
What are the benefits of non-surgical laser vaginal tightening?
For women who want to improve the look and feel of their vaginal area but are reluctant to undergo surgery, IntimaLase™ non-surgical vaginal tightening provides most of the benefits and almost none of the risk of traditional vaginoplasty. Some women who are not candidates for surgery due to pre-existing medical conditions may also benefit from non-surgical techniques. Patients can expect a tighter vaginal canal, with more muscular tone and control, which can restore sensitivity lost as a result of reduced friction during intercourse. Non-surgical laser vaginal tightening was originally designed to treat stress urinary incontinence, and this may be an added benefit for some women.
What type of laser is used for non-surgical vaginal tightening procedures?
Intimalase makes use of a specialized er:YAG laser, which emits infrared light pulses and is non-ablative, meaning that it doesn’t break the skin. This is the same type of laser used in facial resurfacing procedures and some dentistry applications, where it is favoured because it is gentler than traditional implements.
How does non-surgical laser vaginal tightening work?
Intimalase lasers are photothermal, meaning they use intensely concentrated light pulses to create heat in place of traditional incisions. By momentarily heating collagen fibres, the lasers cause the vaginal muscles to suddenly contract and shorten, tightening the vaginal canal. The laser also stimulates collagen remodeling, as well as the synthesis of new collagen fibres, promoting elasticity and creating a naturally tighter vaginal canal.
What are the risks associated with non-surgical vaginal tightening?
Because non-surgical vaginal tightening uses a non-ablative laser that doesn’t break the skin, the risks associated with traditional surgical vaginoplasty, such as bleeding, scarring, and infection, are virtually eliminated. Furthermore, anaesthesia is rarely required. Er:YAG lasers are certified by Health Canada as safe, and are used in a number of medical applications because they are relatively gentle compared to more traditional surgical implements.
Is non-surgical laser vaginal tightening painful?
Most patients report almost no discomfort, other than a warming sensation, eliminating the need for even local anaesthesia.
How long does non-surgical laser vaginal tightening take?
Laser vaginal tightening is a quick and effective procedure, lasting no more than 30 minutes.
How long is recovery time following a non-surgical laser vaginal tightening procedure?
Non-surgical laser vaginal tightening requires no pre or post-operative care, and patients can return to their daily activities immediately following the procedure.
How long after a non-surgical vaginal tightening procedure do I need to wait before having sex?
It is recommended that patients abstain from sexual activity for at least a week following the procedure.
How much does non-surgical laser vaginal tightening cost?
Because this type of laser vaginal tightening procedure is non-surgical, costs typically associated with surgery, such as the presence of an anaesthesiologist and the use of surgical facilities, are greatly reduced or even eliminated. Non-surgical laser vaginal tightening is a cost-effective way to achieve the results you desire.
How effective is non-surgical laser vaginal tightening?
While more extensive vaginal correction may require surgery, for women who are simply experiencing vaginal looseness as a result of age or childbirth, non-surgical laser vaginal tightening is a very effective treatment. In fact, a recent study conducted on the safety and efficacy of Intimalase non-surgical vaginal tightening reports that 95% of women and 85% of their partners experienced moderate to substantial improvement in vaginal tightness, and 95% of patients reported greater sexual satisfaction.
