Shelase Vaginal Regeneration
- Improves stress urinary incontinence
- Treats vaginal dryness
- Reduces pain from intercourse
Many women experience vaginal atrophy, the natural loss of structural collagen thickness and the form of the vaginal tissue, caused by aging, hormonal changes or childbirth. SheLase is a dual laser treatment using two laser wavelengths, GaAs 1540 nm and CO2 10600 nm, significantly improving patients’ quality of life, providing daily and intimate comfort. Shelase’s unique and discreet dual laser technology resurfaces the mucosa with ablation and the non-ablative laser penetrates deep into the tissue to tighten vaginal tissue in a very gentle way with little downtime.
By stimulating the contraction of the mucosa to increase the production of new collagen, vaginal elasticity is restored. Shelase improves the conditions following: stress urinary incontinence (this is the most common condition affecting 50% of women over the age of 55, symptoms appear post menopause or post childbirth), vaginal atrophy (up to 45% of middle aged and elderly women have symptoms including vaginal dryness, vaginal itching, intercourse pain, vaginal laxity, and some times scarring), and vulvovaginal atrophy ( causing changes in vaginal mucosa and vulva appear due to loss of oestrogen after menopause and other hypoestrogenic states such as breast cancer patients on Tamoxifen).
Many patients report increased confidence and improvement in their intimate relationships after their course of treatments. Our medical director, Dr Weber has vast experience with general practice and a gynoclogical background and performs these treatments with a therapist to assist, patients are in safe and discreet hands. It is recommended to endure a coure of three treatments for optimal results and benefits.
The way Shelase feels is comparable to a cervical smear. Internal treatment, little can be felt from the laser treatment and no anaesthetic is required. Externally, when treating the vulva for skin tightening or for scarring (episiotomy), topical lidocaine (anaesthetic cream) is applied 30 minutes before treatment to reduce any discomfort.
