Pregnancy and childbirth entail a series of physical changes in a woman’s body that we should be aware of, as they can lead to a loss of elasticity in the genital area, which is almost always accompanied by dryness, lack of lubrication and urinary incontinence which affect intimate and sexual relations.
Both sudden leaks of urine as well as delays in emptying the bladder can occur as a result of inflammation of the entire genital region, leading to loss of sensation which, in most cases, with appropriate treatment and monitoring, is completely reversible.
The laser has become a very helpful tool in this process and brings with it major advantages and numerous benefits including collagen remodelling and vaginal microcirculation, which achieve a very significant improvement in vaginal laxity after childbirth, improving lubrication as well as treating urinary incontinence.
Advantages of the gynaecological laser
There are no side effects, the laser is harmless, and you can return to your normal life immediately:
- Painless: a vaginal anaesthetic ointment is applied prior to the laser session (15-20 minutes).
- Quick: the laser session lasts no more than 20 minutes.
- Performed on an outpatient basis, without hospitalisation: normal life can be resumed straight away.
