We recommend a gynecological exam, a urine culture and if a vaginal culture to rule out infection is necessary, the main reason is that the laser transmits heat and if infection could get worse.

4- How does laser vaginal?

Vaginal laser produced by thermal effect (heat) the formation of new collagen fibers and improving tone, elasticity and vaginal mucosa; On the other hand returns to place the urethra and bladder to prevent urine loss. In addition it restores the vaginal Ph, as well as the vascularity of the vaginal area.

5- Is it a painful treatment?
