Fractional laser

What is involved

Fractional laser treatment involves the application of small pulses of laser energy on the vaginal mucosa. It is performed on an outpatient basis and is practically painless. In general, two or three sessions are needed to get results, although it varies from case to case.

After the treatment, you can go about your life as normal, although it is advisable to wait a few days before resuming sexual relations.

How does it work

The laser stimulates the formation of new collagen, improving the lubrication and tension of the vaginal canal.

Martina Palau, aged 45

"I have two children and I love running. I ran during and after my two pregnancies, although at a slower pace and for less time, of course. But for the last few months I've started to notice that I'm leaking a little urine, so I went to see my gynaecologist. I was told I needed physiotherapy to improve the tone of my pelvic floor muscles and a laser treatment to strengthen the tissues in the area. I have had several sessions and I think things have improved, although I have had to stop running, but better to act now!".
