An Open & Honest Conversation About IncontiLase
Okay ladies. It’s time to have an open and honest conversation. Not too many of us like aging and we’re all getting pretty comfortable talking about our wrinkles, our sagging breasts and making choices to do something about it. But today we are going to take it a step further and talk about our other girlie parts! Yes, I mean our vaginas.
As we age, gravity and childbirth take a toll down yonder and our vaginas are susceptible to the same collagen loss and loss of elasticity that occurs in other areas of our skin. So while we are applying creams and doing laser treatments to tighten up our faces necks and hands, we continue to cross our legs when we cough and laugh and file our nails during intercourse because things just aren’t as tight down there as they used to be. Am I right? It’s ok to nod your heads.
It’s an embarrassing thing that lots of women don’t want to talk about, but partially because we think there isn’t much we can do. We do our Kegel exercises faithfully, but that’s not cutting it. Many of us aren’t at the point where we want to consider surgery or we just can’t afford the prolonged down time associated with it.
Well cross your legs no more ladies! There is now a great option for you and it’s called the Fotona laser. You may be familiar with this wonderful device we use at Image for lasering many other skin surfaces. This revolutionary new application for the Fotona applies the same principles used to tighten and rejuvenate the skin on your face, to your vagina to tighten and improve elasticity. Two to three comfortable short treatments and you will no longer feel the need to map out the location of every public washroom before leaving the house and you might even venture onto that trampoline with your children or even grandkids!
Hubby’s look out! Over ninety percent of women treated with this technology reported a noticeable difference in vaginal tightness. That could mean increased pleasure and satisfaction during intercourse. And really, wouldn’t we all like a little more excitement between the sheets?
This treatment is great for mild to moderate symptoms, cause let’s face it we aren’t bad enough for surgery, but who wants to be thinking about wetting their pants on girls night out. Results are long lasting and touch up treatments in the future will keep your results working and feeling great!
Yes, I’ve tried it and I can vouch for the fact that the procedure was similar to having a PAP. After one treatment I noticed a significant difference when I was at the gym and out running.
You might wonder how bladder symptoms and vaginal laxity are tied together. Well, urinary incontinence is often caused by stretching and loss of elasticity, as well as injured connective tissue in the pelvic floor. This causes the bladder to sag over the anterior wall of the vagina, creating an imbalanced relationship between the urethra and the bladder, which interferes with the function that closes the bladder when it is full. While you can strengthen the support of the bladder to some extent by exercising the muscles that support it, the connective tissues are equally important. As you can imagine, these tissues do not respond to exercise.
The Fotona laser technique is aimed at repairing and tightening the connective tissues supporting the bladder. The treatment is delivered through the vagina, where microsecond-long laser pulses create a controlled temperature increase within the vaginal tissue. The immediate effect of this heating, is that the collagen and vaginal mucosa tissues shrink, and the vaginal wall becomes tighter. Furthermore, this stimulation allows the body to naturally continue the regeneration and repair process after the treatment. Thus, the bulging of the vaginal wall is lessened, and the bladder receives increased support and can return to normal functioning. Clinical studies have shown the effectiveness of this treatment; 70% of patients were dry after 120 days, 94% of patients reported improvements, and no adverse events were noted.
So don’t be shy! This is a great option for women of all ages. If you think that you might be a candidate, give us a call and come in for a free consultation!
