Reclaim Your Confidence: Discover the LOTUS Gynolaser for Vaginal Health

The LOTUS Gynolaser is a new frontier in women’s health, offering a non-surgical solution to address the conditions of vaginal laxity and atrophy. If you’re unfamiliar with this technology, this blog is here to shed light on what it is and how it might benefit you.

What is the LOTUS Gynolaser?

The LOTUS Gynolaser provides a non-surgical treatment option for vaginal laxity/atrophy and urinary incontinence. A minimally invasive procedure that utilises laser technology to reliably treat vaginal dryness, helping restore and regenerate aging tissue. Overall, the treatment helps to maintain and support vaginal health.

How does it work?

The laser’s energy creates a controlled heating effect, triggering the body’s natural healing response. This process stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of healthy and youthful tissues. The increased collagen tightens the vaginal walls, promoting better lubrication and elasticity.

What is the treatment procedure?

The LOTUS Gynolaser machine is equipped with a vaginal-shaped probe. This probe is inserted into the vagina where the laser is emitted to stimulate a healing reaction in the affected area.  

What is Vaginal Laxity and Atrophy?

Vaginal laxity and atrophy are two related conditions that affect the vagina. These conditions can impact a woman’s sexual health and overall well-being. Here’s a breakdown of each:

Vaginal Laxity:

  • Description: This refers to a feeling of looseness in the vagina. The vaginal walls may feel stretched or less tight.

  • Causes:
    • Childbirth: During childbirth, the tissues can overstretch, affecting the supportive collagen fibers.
    • Menopause: Decreasing estrogen levels can lead to a loss of elasticity and strength in the vaginal walls.
    • Aging: Natural wear and tear over time can also contribute to laxity.

  • Symptoms:
    • Decreased sensation during intercourse
    • Difficulty achieving orgasm
    • Lessened sexual satisfaction
    • Incontinence issues (may occur alongside laxity)

Vaginal Atrophy:

  • Description: This is a thinning and drying of the vaginal tissues. It’s also known as atrophic vaginitis or genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM).

  • Cause: Primarily due to a decline in estrogen levels, most commonly after menopause.

  • Symptoms:
    • Vaginal dryness, burning, and itching
    • Discomfort or pain during intercourse
    • Increased frequency of urinary tract infections (UTIs)
    • Urge incontinence (may occur alongside atrophy)

What is the connection between the two?

  • Both laxity and atrophy are linked to hormonal changes, particularly a decrease in estrogen.
  • Laxity can sometimes occur alongside atrophy, worsening symptoms like dryness and discomfort.
