Fotona Launches New Gynecology Treatments in Russian Market

29 November 2012

The congress (the International Forum for “Cervical and vulvo-vaginal diseases”), held from the 14th to the 17th of November, was attended by more than a thousand participants. Interest was particularly high for Fotona’s newly launched IntimaLase™ and IncontiLase™ treatments for vaginal relaxation syndrome and stress-urinary incontinence. The Fotona booth at the congress experienced an exceptionally high level of attendance, surpassing all expectations, with gynecological specialists from across the Russian republic expressing strong interest in the new minimally invasive procedures. Visitors to the Fotona booth were also given invitations to follow-up workshops planned for mid-December in Moscow and St Petersburg.

Most of the lectures at the congress addressed the topic of clinical gynecology, although the topic of aesthetic gynecology attracted a significant share of attention from congress participants. Dr. O. Ferit Saracoğlu, president of the European Society of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Gynecology (ESCORG), gave a very well-received lecture that featured an overview of aesthetic gynecology treatments, with more than half of his lecture time devoted to the topic of Fotona’s new procedures.

Based on two years of extensive clinical studies, Fotona’s IntimaLase™ and IncontiLase™ treatments have been thoroughly tested and found to be extremely gentle and safe, yet highly effective:

• IntimaLase™ is an incisionless, minimally invasive procedure designed for the treatment of vaginal relaxation syndrome, based on laser-induced, non-ablative thermal effects in the vaginal tissue, stimulating collagen remodeling and synthesis of new collagen fibers. The final result of collagen neogenesis and remodeling is a tightening of the vaginal canal.

• IncontiLase™ is a unique, non-invasive Er:YAG laser therapy for the treatment of mild and moderate stress urinary incontinence, based on non-ablative photothermal stimulation of collagen neogenesis, shrinking and tightening of vaginal mucosa tissue and collagen-rich endopelvic fascia, and subsequently greater support to the bladder.

Fotona’s distributor, SportMedImport has taken a very professional approach in building awareness of the company’s new laser gynecology applications, and has established key relationships with leading Russian medical authorities in the field of gynecology.

Fotona is committed to addressing the current and future needs of gynecologists around the world with innovative solutions for a wide range of laser-based treatments. Visit the Gynecology section of our website for further details.
