Women’s Health Plus is able to provide minimally invasive, non-surgical and pain-free laser treatment at our Adelaide women’s health centre.

Laser therapy can be used to treat a wide range of gynaecological conditions. These include:

  • Urinary incontinence (particularly stress incontinence)
  • Vaginal prolapse, including front or back vaginal wall prolapse
  • Atrophic Vaginitis (also known as Genitourinary Syndrome of menopause), which is when the vaginal walls become thin and dry, and recurrent UTIs become a problem
  • Vaginal laxity and rejuvenation
  • Pain with sex
  • Lichen Sclerosis, a condition where thin, white patches of skin develop in the genital area
  • Vulvar warts and skin tags

Other medical conditions treated with laser at Women’s Health Plus are:

  • Warts and skin tags in other areas of the body, including neck, upper chest, underarms, or under the breast
  • Onychomycosis, which is a fungal infection of the toenails and fingernails
  • Snoring, which can easily and successfully be treated by laser

The laser beam used in the procedure is directed at the skin or vaginal wall as appropriate. The energy diffuses into the tissues of the affected area and impacts on the collagen of the soft tissue. As a result, the treated tissue becomes enriched with new collagen and becomes tighter and more elastic. Symptoms associated with the problem are relieved as a result of this process.

Laser therapy is a non-contact, minimally invasive and high precision procedure. Treatment can be performed without anaesthesia or under a local anaesthetic, and there is little or no pain involved (apart from a slight feeling of heat in some cases).

There is only a short recovery period required, and there is little or no pain or inflammation after treatment has been completed. Many procedures can be performed in around 30 minutes and they are safe and bloodless; in most instances, patients can return to work the same day. Laser therapy is therefore an ideal procedure for women who are seeking care and treatment for a variety of gynaecological and medical conditions but who do not want to undergo surgery.

At Women’s Health Plus, we perform laser therapy to treat any of the gynaecological or medical conditions described above on site at our east Adelaide medical centre in a fully-equipped treatment room.
