Today we’re talking about GynaeLase which is a vaginal treatment that targets a range of common gynaelogical conditions from menopausal dryness to stretching after childbirth. The idea of having a treatment for some of these issues may seem a little intimidating so we asked the expert Dr. Garry Cussell of Specialist Clinics of Australia to find out what’s involved. GynaeLase is a non-surgical treatment program that uses heat therapy to treat three main problems. The first is stress incontinence which is another name for light bladder leakage. Some people also call this “the sneeze wee”. It’s an inability to control the urge to urinate during coughing, sneezing or during exercise. The second problem is vaginal atrophy which is a degeneration in vaginal tissue and is often associated with menopause. Sufferers notice symptoms like vaginal dryness and burning, more frequent urinary tract infections and discomfort during intercourse. The third problem that GynaeLase treats is vaginal laxity. This is often a problem for women after childhood and occurs when the vaginal tissue loses strength and the ability to contract impacting on sensitivity and sensation during intercourse. GynaeLase uses thermal heat therapy and your body’s natural regenerative processes to treat these problems. Without getting too technical, by heating the vagina wall, the treatment stimulates tissue regeneration and collagen production. This process causes the collagen fibres to contract and tighten in the vagina which improves elasticity. It also encourages the production of new healthy tissue that thickens and strengthens the vaginal wall. This process gives you more strength and tightness to reduce leakages. It also improves moisture, normalizes ph levels and restores the healthy lining of the vagina. GynaeLase balances healthy bacteria levels targeting symptoms like dryness and burning to make intercourse more comfortable. Before starting any treatment you will have a comprehensive consultation to determine whether you’re eligible for the program. Typically a treatment once a month for three months is recommended for best results. You’ll also need a maintenance treatment 1 to 2 times a year but this can vary person-to-person. Each treatment usually last about 30 minutes and Dr Cussell says most people report it’s relatively painless – even less uncomfortable than a pap smear. Some people do get a feeling of heat around the outer sensitive areas however numbing cream can be applied. After having the treatment you don’t need to do much in terms of aftercare, just refrain from having intercourse the 2 to 5 days. Some women may also experience discharge as the vagina environment normalizes. As the treatment stimulates the body’s own natural processes the results will be different for each individual and may also vary depending on the condition being treated. You may feel an immediate improvement and this will continue to progress over the next two treatments and over the next few months as the new tissue builds and strengthens. GynaeLase is a treatment option that is non-hormonal and non-surgical. It can address multiple concerns in three easy sessions. It works to stimulate your own natural processes giving you peace of mind that you’re not adding artificial elements to your body. Thanks for watching guys.
