Urinary stress incontinence, & irritable bladder.
The Intima laser correction isn’t only for post-menopausal women
Many women are severely affected by the lack of or low levels of the female hormone oestrogen leading to many unpleasant menopausal symptoms. Oestrogen keeps the vaginal tissue healthy, allowing it to maintain its natural physiological function and a healthy vaginal environment. However, problems arise when oestrogen levels start to drop as a result of a natural age related decline or a premature menopause. This hypo-oestrogenic state causes:
- thinning of the vaginal wall
- dryness, itching
- burning with urination
- pain during intercourse
- changes to the pH and bacterial flora in the vagina predisposing it to vaginal and bladder infections.
The Intima treatment has been demonstrated to significantly restore the normal vaginal architecture and environment as if the oestrogen was still there; thereby improving many of the unpleasant consequences of low oestrogen states. Most women report significant improvement in sexual function after the very first treatment.

Intima for vaginal symptoms
Intima treatment can provide long-term reversal of the vaginal atrophic (degenerative) changes such as thinning of the mucosa associated with discomfort, dryness, painful intercourse, sensation of burning and urinary incontinence. It has been proved to be a successful way of treating chronic vaginal pain not responding to other forms of treatment.
Intima for bladder symptoms
Intima treatment aims specifically to tighten and firm the anterior vaginal wall, thus restoring support to the base of the overlying bladder and urethra thereby improving the symptoms of urinary incontinence. There is also evidence showing that restoring bladder support reduces frequency of recurrent urinary tract infections.
How is the treatment done?
The laser produces safe pulses of laser energy delivered via a tube shaped individual and sterile vaginal probe.These pulses generate laser beams which create microscopic channels of 0.7mm (700 microns) into the vaginal mucosa at closely spaced intervals. The process causes a mini–defect in the collagen making it shrink while stimulating new collagen and elastin to grow thus bulking and rejuvenating this layer. Rotation of the probe at 360° allows treatment of the entire vaginal canal (please see the video). This leads to an overall tightening of the lax vaginal walls including the upper part of the vagina producing added support for the base of the bladder and urethra.
The initial shrinkage and secondary regeneration also causes stretching of the internal bulbs and crura (structures) of the internal portion of the clitoris resulting in enhanced sexual sensation within the vagina.
The outcome of this procedure is the complete remodelling of the vaginal mucosa and the underlying collagen structure as well as the re-establishment of robust “younger-feeling” vaginal tissue enriched in thick and long collagen fibres. A clinical study showed that, at the three-month follow-up after the third treatment, 100% of women reported satisfaction with the treatment and 94% would recommend it to others. Additionally, 82% of women showed a statistically significant improvement in the vaginal health index.
