What’s vaginal atrophy?

Many postmenopausal women experience vaginal atrophy, and 45% of women experience symptoms, such as vaginal dryness, itching, irritation or pain during sexual intercourse. To treat vaginal atrophy, our urologists use the Erbium-Yag 2,940 nm laser. This technology provides circumferential photothermal treatment of the vaginal walls.

The laser stimulates collagen production in the vaginal tissue. It also enhances the vascularization of the vagina mucous membrane to naturally improve the condition of the vaginal walls.

If you’re experiencing postmenopausal vaginal atrophy, this treatment could be right for you. It’s also recommended for women who can’t undergo hormonal therapy  after recovering from breast cancer. This procedure is also an alternative for patients who don’t want to apply topical cream or take vaginal estrogen 2 to 3 times a week.
