Laser vaginal tightening, or Fotona laser therapy, is a non-invasive treatment for mild stress urinary incontinence.
This innovative procedure, which is performed using a Fotona Erbium YAG laser, has been offered for a number of years now, in particular in Europe, to treat bladder problems in women. It involves photothermal tightening of the anterior wall of the bladder and urethra. The Fotona laser is configured to specifically target the collagen-rich vaginal mucosa. It remodels the treated vaginal tissues, resulting in their contraction and tightening.
It’s a safe and simple procedure that requires little preparation and doesn’t involve any incisions. It lasts about 15 minutes and has a short recovery period.
There are few studies on gynecological laser therapies. However, there are many studies in the field of dermatology about fundamentally similar laser treatments. To date, clinical assessment of this therapy has conclusively demonstrated its efficacy. Moreover, the patient satisfaction rate is high.
According to our Urinary Incontinency Treatment Policy, the vaginal tightening is automatically included.
