Before the introduction of the Gynecology Laser treatments Toronto, surgery was the most common vaginal rejuvenation procedure which included vaginoplasty. In the surgical procedure, the excess tissues were removed and there was a rearrangement of vaginal and peripheral tissues which would surgically reduce the size of the vaginal canal. It was a high-risk procedure which entailed high chances of infection, bleeding, scarring and modification of the sensation of the vagina. The surgical treatment also had downtime and a recovery period which also involved refraining from any sexual activity for at least 6 weeks. Hence, there was an increasing demand for the non-surgical procedure which had fewer complications as compared to the surgical option.
What is laser treatment?
There is state of the art advanced laser systems which treat a variety of conditions in the aesthetic medicine like dentistry, dermatology, surgery and gynaecology. In the case of gynaecology, it is used as an alternative to surgery for treating moderate conditions like stress urinary incontinence and vaginal laxity, which are common complications of natural childbirth.
What are the different problems that can be tackled with the help of laser treatment?
Vaginal childbirth can cause loss of structural support to the connective tissues in the pelvic area, which is also the leading cause for urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. If you have been suffering from either mild or moderate vaginal relaxation syndrome symptom or any other related issue and want to undergo a laser treatment and want to know if you are best suited for it, then following are some of the issues which can be tackled with the help of laser treatment.
Age: There is no denying the fact that ageing has a drastic effect on the entire body, including the reproductive system. AS we begin to age, the production of collagen and elastin fibres which support the connective tissues also starts to decrease. The pelvic floor is no exception when it comes to ageing. It plays a crucial role in the urogenital system as it provides support to the surrounding organs and also has an impact on the physical form and functioning of the organs. As we start to age, the muscles in the pelvic floor start to weaken and vaginal laxity eventually leads to anatomical changes in the reproductive system.
Menopause: Menopause marks the end of the reproductive life cycle and the end of menstrual cycles. It affects all women. When women are going through menopause there is a lot of menopause-related problems which also arise that the body needs to adjust to as permanent biological change.
Pelvic Organ Prolapse: As the name suggests, pelvic organ prolapse happens due to weak pelvic floor muscles. Pregnancy and childbirth are the primary causes for the symptoms of prolapse. If you are suffering from either mild or moderate prolapse, then you are a suitable candidate and will be able to achieve significant improvement with the help of this procedure.
