What is Vaginal Tightening with IntimaLase®?
As we age, our skin and tissues can lose some of their elasticity. This is also true of some tissues we can't see, like the ones along the vaginal canal. The vagina may also become overstretched due to childbirth. This loss of firmness can reduce sexual gratification for both you and your partner. The good news is, you can change it.
You may already be aware of surgical procedures that offer vaginal rejuvenation. But if you prefer to avoid surgery, we offer a non-surgical method of vaginal tightening called IntimaLase®.
Rather than cutting the skin, IntimaLase® uses an Er:YAG non-ablative (non-wounding) laser with proprietary SMOOTH mode to accomplish vaginal tightening. It does this with photo-thermal technology. It's non-invasive, with no downtime. You can return to your usual everday activities immediately after treatment.

How Does Non-Surgical Vaginal Tightening Work?
The IntimaLase® procedure uses a Fotona SP Dynamis System Er:YAG non-ablative laser with SMOOTH mode. The Er:YAG laser is very gentle, so local anesthesia is not necessary for the procedure. In addition, because it doesn't cut the skin, there will be no bleeding, and no sutures required.
In addition to its non-invasive nature, the Er:YAG laser is ideal for vaginal tightening because it's very precise. Its wavelength targets just the uppermost layer of the skin—the epidermis. It emits fast pulses of laser light, and that energy is absorbed by the water contained in the skin's cells. The heat from the laser then vaporizes that tissue, causing the skin to shrink and tighten.
This also stimulates the production of new collagen in the dermis, so when new skin forms to replace what was lost, it's smoother and tighter than the tissue being replaced.
Our patients who have had non-surgical vaginal tightening in our clinic have reported very little discomfort experienced during or after the procedure. You can return to work the same day, and resume sexual activity within two weeks.
