Gynecologic Laser Therapy for the Treatment of Incontinence and Vaginal Rejuvenation

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is the involuntary leakage of urine with activities such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, lifting or exercise. The most common causes of urinary incontinence are pregnancy, childbirth, decreased estrogen or menopause, advanced age and obesity. It is believed that 1 in 4 Canadians experience some level of incontinence in their lifetime. In addition, the normal aging process and childbirth also results in stretching and looseness of the vaginal canal. This decreases the support of the bladder and diminishes the friction during sexual intercourse, resulting in decrease or loss of sexual gratification.

Previously, kegel exercises, pelvic floor physio or pessaries were the only treatment options for these conditions. These were often only mildly effective and had a long waiting list to even be assessed. Studies have also shown that women may also be too embarrassed to discuss this condition with their physicians, so 75% of cases go unreported and untreated. For more severe conditions, invasive surgery was recommended. However, due to the significant risk of complications and a long recovery period, most women preferred to just deal with the condition. However, the SP Dynamis Fotona laser has revolutionized the treatment of this condition and provided a life-changing option for women. This non-invasive treatment heats up the collagen fibers below the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen growth with little or no pain, and virtually no risk.

How does it work:

  • The Erbium SMOOTH mode creates non-ablation thermal effects in the vaginal tissue that stimulates collagen remodeling
  • The first laser hand piece directs the energy to the anterior portion of the wall to support the bladder
  • The second hand piece directs the energy around the entire circumference to tighten the entire vaginal canal
  • There is some immediately contraction of the collagen fibers as the tissues heat and contract
  • New collagen is deposited in about 3 weeks
  • Collagen continues to be formed for 6-8 months following the procedure, providing continued and long-term improvement
  • The final result of collagen remodelling and formation is tightening of the entire vaginal canal and greater support to the bladder and urethra which dramatically improves incontinence while simultaneously increasing sexual gratification.
