Laser Treatment of Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome and Stress Urinary Incontinence
Vaginal relaxation syndrome (VRS) is a condition that medically involves the vagina and its loss of structure in women after child birth as well as due to the process of aging. Treatment for the condition includes use of surgery (Surgical Vaginaplasty, also known as Pelvic floor muscle restoration surgery) and/or a non-invasive Laser technology (Laser Vaginaplasty).
What is SIU?
SIU stands for stress Urinary Incontinence and involves the loss of the ability to control the bladder especially about bouts of coughing, running, sneezing, bending to pick something or even lifting a heavy object.
The Surgical Vaginaplasty
The treatment through Vaginaplasty surgery is very successful, produces a tighter vaginal tract, however it involves subjecting the patient to anaesthesia and surgery. Unlike Laser Vaginaplasty, the patient who is considering surgical vaginaplasty requires 5 days off work and abstains from sex for 4-6 weeks. The surgery also has minor general side effects such as infection hence the spirited attempts by the clinicians to find a better way of dealing with the condition without necessarily having to subject the patient to surgery.
The Laser Vaginaplasty, a non-surgical intervention
The laser module has been developed to help women in different age group and in particular women in the menopause stage. It involves the use of CO₂ Fractional and Surgical mode laser technology.
