Most women are uncomfortable in discussing issues related to their vaginal health. Previously surgical procedures were the only options available, but with the advancement in technology various Vaginal Laser Treatments multiple common gynaecological and vaginal issues can now be treated in a minimally invasive manner with no to a very little downtime. Laser treatments have been the talk of the town for quite some time especially for skin rejuvenation and tightening. Following are some of the main issues which are tackled by the vaginal laser treatments.
Stress Urinary Incontinence
Incontinence is one of the most common problems and it mostly goes unreported as many women feel uncomfortable and sometimes even embarrassed when it comes to sharing about this problem. Stress urinary incontinence is also referred to as SUI. It occurs when the pressure on the bladder increases. The increase in the pressure could be due to sneezing, laughing or exercising which in turn causes an involuntary urine leakage from the bladder. Weak muscles present in the pelvic floor and the connective tissues in the supporting region give rise to stress urinary incontinence. Ageing and childbirth are some of the reasons why the muscles and tissues start to weaken.
The laser is a non-ablative treatment for stress urinary incontinence. The treatment works by the stimulation of the collagen production and tightening and shrinking of the vaginal tissue. This causes an increase in the support of the bladder.
Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome
If you have been facing the symptoms of vaginal laxity and an increase in the vaginal canal diameter, then you might be suffering from vaginal relaxation syndrome. It is usually caused by vaginal childbirth. The chances of it increase with multiple childbirths.
Vaginal relaxation syndrome can be easily treated with the help of laser treatment. During the procedure, short and quick bursts of thermal energy are directed to the vaginal area which needs to be treated. This short and quick bursts of energy in the form of wavelengths causes the initiation of the production of collagen and the shrinkage of the cells present in the vaginal canal. Hence, tightening the vagina.
Pelvic Organ Prolapse or POP
By prolapse, one understands the descending of organs. When using the term pelvic floor it is used to refer to the muscles present in the pelvic opening region. It is usually these muscles and their corresponding tissues which keep the pelvic organs in place internally. Due to ageing and childbirth, the pelvic organ starts to prolapse. About one-third of the women go through pelvic organ prolapse. Bladder, uterus and the vagina are the organs which prolapse.
Pelvic Organ Prolapse can be easily treated with a laser gynecological treatment. It is a gentle and non-invasive procedure which deals with that issue. It works in such a way that it tightens the tissues which are present in the affected area and causes them to contract the vaginal canal which effectively treats the prolapse.
