iNCONTILASE™ & iNTIMALASE™
NON SURGICAL TREATMENTS FOR STRESS URINARY INCONTINENCE AND VAGINAL RELAXATION SYNDROME
If you are suffering from involuntary loss of urine when you sneeze, cough, jump, or run; or vaginal relaxation caused by the natural ageing process and childbirth, discover lncontiLase TM and lntimaLase TM … the non-surgical laser treatments for stress urinary incontinence, vaginal relaxation syndrome and vaginal atrophy.
How do lncontiLase & IntimaLase work? The laser has a photothermal heating effect on collagen in both the vaginal walls and the urethra which causes restructuring and regrowth of collagen. This results in thickening and tightening of the vaginal walls and urethra to improve atrophy and prevent urine loss.
This simple, non-surgical, in-office procedure is highly effective, pain-free and safe. A special attachment, similar to a speculum as used during a Pap test, is inserted into the vagina, during which the entire vaginal region is treated with short laser pulses through a small handpiece. You can leave immediately after the procedure and continue your daily routine. There may be some minimal sensitivity after the procedure and a transparent discharge for 2-3 days afterwards. Sexual intercourse is not recommended for 1 week after the procedure.
STRESS URINARY INCONTINENCE (SUI) WHAT IS STRESS URINARY INCONTINENCE?
Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common problem in women, which causes the involuntary loss of urine during coughing, sneezing, laughing, or physical exertion such as running or climbing stairs. What are the causes of SUI? The cause for this involuntary loss of urine is the weakening of the urethral closure mechanism, which is the result of changes in the pelvic floor region. The main contributing factors are vaginal childbirth, obesity and ageing.
WHAT IS INCONTILASE®?
IncontiLase® is an innovative, patented, Er:YAG laser therapy for mild and moderate stress urinary incontinence (SUI) based on the revolutionary, non-invasive Fotona SMOOTH® technology.
HOW DOES INCONTILASE® WORK?
The 2940 nm Er:YAG laser used for IncontiLase® features a built-in proprietary technology called Fotona SMOOTH® that enables delivery of precisely controlled laser-induced thermal effects, which stimulates collagen neogenesis and remodels the mucosa tissue (in the region of the vestibule and urethral orifice, as well as in the area along the anterior vaginal wall). The end result of the IncontiLase® treatment is non-ablative photothermal tension, shrinkage and tightening of the vaginal tissue in the urethral and anterior bladder wall region, leading to improved support of the bladder and resumed control over urination and the return of normal continence function.*
RESULTS FROM CLINICAL STUDIES CONFIRM THAT INCONTILASE IS AN EFFECTIVE, SAFE, COMFORTABLE TREATMENT FOR SYMPTOM RELIEF IN PATIENTS WITH MILD OR MODERATE SUI*
- 94 % of women reported that SUI improved significantly*
- 120 days post treatment 68% were completely free of SUI*
WHAT IS VAGINAL RELAXATION & ATROPHY?
Vaginal relaxation syndrome (VRS) is defined as laxity of the vaginal wall. It can result in loss of friction and sexual satisfaction for both a woman and her partner. Vaginal atrophy refers to the thinning of the wall of the vagina, which often occurs post menopause and is associated with dryness. What are the causes of vaginal relaxation & atrophy? The most common cause of vaginal relaxation is overstretching of the vaginal wall during childbirth, which can increase with the number of births. Other causes are congenital connective tissue weakness and natural ageing. Vaginal atrophy normally occurs post menopause due to a lack of estrogen.
WHAT IS INTIMALASE?
IntimaLase® is the latest non-surgical laser treatment for vaginal relaxation syndrome, which is characterized by laxity of the vaginal wall. This condition is generally associated with overstretching of the vaginal canal during childbirth as well as with natural aging. Fotona’s unique, patent-pending Er:YAG laser therapy provides incisionless, non-invasive photothermal tightening of the vaginal canal. Clinical studies have shown that IntimaLase is an efficient, easy-to-perform and safe procedure.
HOW DOES INTIMALASE® WORK?
The IntimaLase® treatment is based on a proprietary 2940 nm Er:YAG laser technology called Fotona SMOOTH®, which enables delivery of specially composed laser energy pulses to the vaginal mucosa tissue. The precisely controlled Fotona SMOOTH® energy pulses are designed to induce thermal effects in the vaginal tissue, stimulating collagen remodeling and the synthesis of new collagen fibres. The end result of collagen neogenesis and remodelling is tightening of the vaginal canal.
SCIENTIFIC RESULTS SHOW GREAT IMPROVEMENTS IN VAGINAL TIGHTNESS AND SEXUAL GRATIFICATION*
- High level of patient satisfaction*
- 95 % of women indicated they experienced a more than moderate level of vaginal tightening*
