Erbium Yag laser is an innovative technology to treat urinary incontinence. This therapeutic treatment is supported by a high-precision Erbium Yag 2940 nm laser, and consists in a photothermal tightening of the anterior urinary bladder—including the urethra.
Fotona’s technology proposes several technical specifications and settings that enable an accurate configuration of the laser energy when put on the collagen-rich mucous membrane of the vagina. Neocollagenesis and remodeling result from this process, and generate a contraction and tightening effect on the vaginal tissue. This contraction is not permanent and lasts 12 to 18 months.
Very few studies have examined laser treatments in gynecology. However, there are some dermatological studies based on the very same fundamental concepts. Clinical evaluations have shown a high-efficiency level, and a probative satisfaction rate.
According to our Urinary Incontinency Treatment Policy, the vaginal tightening is automatically included.
