Fotona RenovaLase – Vaginal Atrophy Laser Treatment

Fotona Laser systems are the leading advanced laser modules that are engineered with dynamic applications to treat multiple types of non-invasive procedures for the entire body

Cosmetic gynecology is the latest craze in aesthetic laser treatments that can help patients combat the signs of aging in the genitourinary regions of the female body. RenovaLase treatment is a non-ablative, non-invasive laser treatment specifically designed to treat vaginal atrophy in post-menopausal females. Vaginal atrophy is a common post-menopausal condition that affects millions of women across the world. Vaginal atrophy is also known as atrophic vaginitis, or more recently identified as the genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM). It is the physiological response to the lower levels of estrogen caused by menopause. The lower production of hormones in women often leads to vaginal atrophy. It also involves the thinning and drying of the vaginal wall tissue as well as inflammation, which leads to the loss of elasticity and weakening of the muscles in the vagina.

Vaginal Atrophy Symptoms

  • Painful intercourse
  • Stress urinary incontinence
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Vaginal burning
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Genital itching
  • Burning with urination
  • Increased occurrence of urinary tract infections
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • Shortening and tightening of the vaginal canal

How Does RenovaLase Work?

At Dr. Torgerson’s Clinic, RenovaLase procedures are performed by Dr. Colleen McDermott, a qualified and experienced gynecologist who takes great care in assessing each individual patient’s medical history, desired cosmetic goals, and expectations to curate a highly customized treatment program to address vaginal atrophy symptoms in patients.

Fotona RenovaLase laser therapy procedures are performed using Fotona’s advanced dual-wavelength technology with the SP Dynamis laser system using the 2940nm er:YAG laser under Smooth Mode. Smooth Mode safely emits non-invasive laser heat to initiate photothermal activity in the vaginal canal tissue. The process of controlled heating of vaginal tissue stimulates angiogenesis, which increases collagen and elastin fibroblast formation without thermal or ablation damage. Fotona RenovaLase treatments result in the increased thickness of the epithelial tissue as well as the vascularisation of the lamina propria, contributing to an overall rejuvenation of the vaginal mucosa.

Who Is A Good Candidate?

Women who are experiencing the signs of menopause accompanied with mild to moderate stress or mixed urinary incontinence are ideal candidates for RenovaLase treatments of their genitourinary system. Menopause women may also find relief of their post menopausal symptoms with RenovaLase treatments, which improve the vaginal discomfort associated with vaginal atrophy such as vaginal dryness, itching, and weakened vaginal walls. RenovaLase laser technology helps restore pelvic and vaginal strength, meaning that mothers who have undergone single or multiple pregnancies and vaginal child births are ideal candidates for these treatments.

Lifestyle influences that can further exacerbate the associated symptoms of vaginal atrophy include:

Smoking

Smoking is detrimental to the overall health of the entire body. The female reproductive system is no exception. Smoking decreases blood circulation, causing lower levels of oxygen supply to the vagina and the surrounding tissue. Smoking also affects the level of estrogen production in the female body, which often causes earlier symptoms of menopause in smokers.

No vaginal births

Reasearch in gynecology suggests that women who have given vaginal births are at a lower risk of developing vaginal atrophy than women who have not had vaginal births.

No sexual activity

Sexual activity increases blood flow to the vagina, so patients with zero or minimal sexual activity are more likely to be affected by the symptoms associated with menopause.
