Aesthetic Laser Treatment
Lichen sclerosus is a chronic inflammatory skin disease of unknown origin. In women, it can affect the vulva and the perianal area (anus) and lead to swelling, tearing, minor bleeding, itching, burning when urinating, or painful intercourse.
Pearly white spots on the skin, swelling, tearing, minor bleeding combined with itching, burning when urinating, or painful intercourse are typical symptoms of lichen sclerosus of the tapering entrance to the vagina (vulva). The labia minora begin to shrink and can disappear entirely or become fused.
Atrophic vaginitis (menopausal syndrome of the vagina) is an inflammatory disease of the vaginal mucosa. Vaginal inflammation due to hormone deficiency affects women especially shortly before, during, and after menopause or women who need to take certain drugs. It is caused by the hormone deficiency that occurs during menopause, which also affects the vagina. In women, the entrance to the vagina (vulva) and in particular the vagina itself are affected. Vaginal dryness makes the vagina less resistant. It develops small tears and bleeding, itching, burning during urination, or pain during intercourse. Another result can be unintentional loss of urine when coughing, laughing, or sneezing.
The vagina is red and dry. It has all the signs of a hormone deficiency. Minor tears and bleeding indicate that the natural vaginal function has been lost due to the age-related hormone deficiency. The vagina can no longer recover and regenerate. The normal vaginal environment is changed. Infections increase. Itching, burning during urination, or painful intercourse are just as typical for a hormone-deficiency vaginal infection (atrophic vaginitis, hormone-deficiency vaginitis, or vaginal menopausal syndrome) as the unintentional loss of urine when coughing, laughing, or sneezing.
Stress incontinence is the unintentional loss of urine when coughing, laughing, or sneezing. These symptoms can occur after several vaginal childbirths, after a hysterectomy, with a hormone deficiency as menopausal syndrome of the vagina, due to overweight, genetic disposition, or medication taken. A typical factor is that the bladder closure mechanism becomes weaker and pressure on the bladder under stress leads to leakage of urine. In advanced cases there is embarrassing urine loss – incontinence. Stress incontinence often begins shortly before, during, or after menopause. This is because the hormone deficiency that sets in at menopause affects the vagina and the bladder closure mechanism.
Vaginal rejuvenation and sexuality
After vaginal childbirth, operations, or for other reasons, women may feel that their vagina is “too loose.” In such cases, laser treatment can be an effective treatment option. The pixelated laser light stimulates active regeneration processes in the various layers of vaginal tissue that make the vaginal tissue firmer and also somewhat tighter, which has a positive effect on the couple’s sexual life. The procedure is called “vaginal rejuvenation.” The vaginal tissue is stimulated by intensive laser treatment in 3-4 outpatient sessions to enhance and support the body’s own regeneration.
