Vaginal Prolapse

Vaginal Prolapse Laser Treatment

A vaginal prolapse occurs when the pelvic floor muscles, tissues and ligaments weaken and stretch. This can happen at any stage of a woman’s life but we see it most often in patients who have previously given birth, patients over the age of 55 and patients carrying some extra weight.

We understand how uncomfortable this can be and if you suspect that this may be happening to you, reach out to our knowledgeable team. We will help determine the best treatment for you.

Treatment

Designed to be gentle and painless, our laser procedure is simple, non-surgical and requires no special preparation.

Dr. Murphy uses revolutionary Fotona laser technology to treat mild-to-moderate vaginal prolapse– reverting vaginal tissues back to a tighter, healthier state. At our clinic, we know that laser treatment is just as effective and in many cases, superior, to traditional treatment options, especially in regard to safety.

Clinical studies show that our procedure is safe and provides excellent results without any of the usual complications due to surgery. We are proud to offer this treatment as a holistic alternative for women with mild-to-moderate vaginal prolapse. Dr. Murphy is the first in Canada to combine both ND: Yag and Er Yag laser wavelengths to treat prolapse and vaginal looseness; in keeping with our commitment to bring the best available technology to our patients.

For full transparency, the laser will usually not ‘cure’ prolapse; it will often reduce symptoms to a more manageable, or asymptomatic state. To be clear, surgery doesn’t ‘cure’ prolapse either; it just compensates, usually temporarily.


Recovery

While most of our patients see significant improvement after the first session, it can take up to four months to experience a fully healed outcome. We always recommend three initial sessions and one yearly maintenance session for optimal results.

The likelihood of adverse effects is low and you’ll experience minimal discomfort.


Results

Our treatment is a safe and non-invasive alternative to traditional methods with no cutting, bleeding or stitches. It’s also suitable for treating higher-grade prolapses. While we can’t guarantee that it will ‘cure’ a higher-grade prolapse, there is a good chance that your symptoms will improve which may lessen the need for surgery and/or postpone it.

In any case, tissues will strengthen and your prolapse will decrease, significantly improving your quality of life – without surgery.

Symptoms can include feelings of heaviness around your lower abdomen and genitals, a bulging discomfort inside your vagina, feeling like there’s something moving down into your vagina, feeling or seeing a lump in or coming out of your vagina, discomfort during sex, problems peeing and more.

Prolapse occurs when the muscles, fascia, ligaments and tissues of the pelvic floor no longer support pelvic structures causing the uterus to slip into the vagina. It can also occur when the vaginal walls start to bulge or slip through (like a sock that is pushed into itself).
