Anatomical Diagram showing Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome


Sexual gratification, for both partners, is directly related with the tightness of vagina, which has a tendancy to loosen over time.


What is Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome?

Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome is the term given to laxity (looseness) of the vaginal wall, which results in an increase in the inner diameter of the vagina. You might also hear this termed as a “loose” or “relaxed” vagina.

This can be the result of the ageing process, hormonal factors, genetics or other causes, but in all cases is commonly associated with a decrease in sexual gratification for both the woman and her partner. Whist the decrease in sexual gratification is probably the major complaint of Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome, VRS is also linked with the other Gynaecological problems such as stress urinary incontinence, anterior-posterior vaginal wall prolapses and so on. 


What treatments were previously offered to treat Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome?

Vaginal loosening was traditionally treated in an invasive, painful, way, utilising a combination of vaginal sutures (vaginoplasty) and CO2 laser that ablates (destroys) and damages the lining of the vaginal (the mucosa) and leads to reduction of the vaginal diameter as a result of scar formation during healing.

As the description suggest such a treatment is painful and results in considerable recovery time.


What is the modern solution?

IntimalaseTM is the revolutionary innovative non-ablative minimally-invasive laser treatment, developed by the dedicated research of Fotona’s clinical experts, that can quite simply change a woman’s life.

IntimalaseTM uses the gentle heating effect generated by the Er:YAG laser, delivered in a precise, manner through specially designed applicators.

When applied to the vaginal tissue, the laser energy stimulates the collagen tissue, shrinking it immediately after the application of laser. The laser also stimulates collagen new growth  and a collagen recomposition process in the tissue, which ensures the shrinkage process continues after the treatment and making the shrinkage permanent.

Two treatment sessions are normally performed, up to a month apart; although just one session of IntimalaseTM treatment is enough for treating the relaxation in most of the patients.

Studies show that 100% percent of the patients report an improved tightness and 95% percent of the patients (and also their sexual partners) report an increase in the sense of tightness and sexual gratification. The amount of increase in the gratification is described as "moderate" to "high" by 80% of the patients.

A single treatment session typically takes just 30 minutes, as an out-patient, and no anaesthesia is required. As mentioned above, effects are immediate, with no side effects.
