Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a common problem, affecting almost 50% of parous women to some degree.
Before ProlapLase® there were only two solutions available: supporting pessaries and surgical methods, both of which have been associated with problems and high levels of adverse effects.
ProlapLase® is an innovative and unique non-invasive Er:YAG laser alternative for the treatment of POP.
It utilises the gentle, nonablative photothermal effects of Fotona’s SMOOTH mode to tighten the tissue and contract the vaginal canal.
Preliminary clinical studies show that it is an efficient, easy-to-perform and safe procedure.
What to Expect
Treatments are simple and quick. No anaesthesia is required, you walk in and walk out and there are no complications or incisions. The procedure is incisionless and painless, with no cutting, bleeding, or downtime. A special handpiece, similar to a speculum as used during a Pap test, is inserted into the vagina. The vaginal region is then treated with subablative laser pulses. No special pre-op preparations or post-op precautions are necessary. You can immediately return to normal everyday activities after the treatment, which takes 15 to 20 minutes.
The treatments and 1st consultation (which includes a pelvic scan) is carried out by our Gynae Consultant Dr Rita Galimberti.
After your initial consultation (€200), we will book you in for your treatments, 4 weeks apart for each treatment.
Payment can be made on the day of treatment (€600) with a €50 deposit only taken. So you can pay as you go, no need to pay for all of the treatment package up front.
