Laser Gynaecology in London
Laser gynaecology treatment at Centre for Surgery in London utilises highly effective Fotona SMOOTH laser technology. Fotona SMOOTH laser is able to offer an entirely non-invasive treatment solution to address a wide range of vaginal concerns including vaginal laxity, stress urinary incontinence leading to leakage of urine during coughing or sneezing, symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse and vaginal atrophy. Our vaginal laser treatments are based on a specially engineered non-ablative laser mode (Fotona SMOOTH) that delivers targeted thermal energy pulses deep to the tissues that have undergone adverse changes over time. The result is a healthier, stronger and improved vaginal function with continued substantial improvement over time as the vaginal tissue undergoes further remodelling. Laser vaginal tightening treatments are very gentle, cause no pain and lead to no downtime following the procedure all without the need for incisions, scars, risks and downtime of traditional surgical treatments such as a vaginoplasty. The treatments not only target specific concerns but can also address multiple vaginal symptoms in one treatment. An example being an improvement in urinary incontinence and reduced feeling of pelvic organ prolapse in the same treatment.

To say they changed my life is an understatement. All the staff here are SOO down to earth and make you feel at ease!. From daily check up calls to that first consultation, Lidia made sure everything was running smoothly for me!! The whole team is literally by your side all the way!! Going in to a procedure I was petrified, scared and everything else, I couldn’t even bring myself to the consultation but Lidia made it her priority to ensure I was as comfortable as can be and that I was in safe hands!. Without her kind words I wouldn’t have gone ahead with it all.
Having really bad anxiety has always been a challenge for me but I can honestly say after my experience with Dr Dimitriadi she basically educated me and gave me a whole different perspective on my procedure and that in fact I was more then normal even if I didn’t feel so myself! Something I’ve never had before!
Her support was beyond belief, I couldn’t thank Dr. Dimitriadi and everyone enough for making me feel so secure. Her team were brilliant I’ve never felt more confident and finally excited about my next chapter in life!! Safe hands is indeed the word for it!!
I would highly recommend Centre for Surgery as I truly believe no other practice would make this journey as professional and comforting as they did! Feeling extremely grateful and blessed to have had the most amazing team to give me a start on my dream life.

Slowly but surely I’m going through the healing stages and I couldn’t be more happier with my results!!!! Brings me tears of joy just writing this review. You guys are straight out the best!
Ideal candidates for gynaecology laser treatment
The Fotona SMOOTH laser gynaecology treatments are applicable to a very wide range of adult women who fulfil the following criteria:
- Adult women over the age of 18 who are concerned by vaginal laxity, urinary stress incontinence, mild pelvic organ prolapse or suffer from vaginal dryness.
- Patients who are not keen on the idea of more invasive surgical treatment or may have had previous vaginal tightening surgery and wish to maintain the results over time.
- Patients should otherwise be in good physical and mental health and with realistic expectations of what the treatment can achieve.
What is Fotona SMOOTH?
The walls of the vagina are composed of connective tissue which plays an important role in structural support of the surrounding pelvic organs including the rectum and bladder. Loss of integrity of the pelvic floor musculature as a result of childbirth or advancing age may result in symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction. The vagina begins to lose its tightness caused by stretching of the supporting ligaments which may affect sexual function as well as give rise to symptoms of urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse.
Fotona SMOOTH laser treatments are based on unique non-ablative Erbium laser technology that delivers focussed pulses of thermal energy to the walls of the vagina to gently heat the tissue. The gentle thermal heating effect results in improvement in the strength of the pelvic muscles and ligaments as a result of the stimulation of new collagen and elastin production. The deeper layers of the vagina undergo thickening and develop increased tautness and firmness with an associated improvement in local blood supply leading to less vaginal dryness.
IntimaLase or laser vaginal tightening is a non-invasive and gentle laser treatment using Fotona SMOOTH pulses targeted at the surface of the vagina and vaginal opening or vulva. IntimaLase has been demonstrated to increase sexual satisfaction and make a dramatic positive impact on overall quality of life in women who have has laser vaginal tightening.
The figures speak for themselves, in a recent study, 95% of women experienced better sensation and more friction during sex, and more than 50% experienced better orgasms after having the IntimaLase® treatment.
IncontiLase is a laser gynaecology treatment for the non-surgical treatment of stress urinary incontinence and also mixed incontinence. The gentle heating of the deeper connective tissue stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin which helps to strengthen the supporting tissue and reduce symptoms of this socially disabling condition which is a source of much embarrassment in many women.
In a recent study, after IncontiLase® treatment, 81% of women that previously suffered from severe urinary incontinence were free of symptoms or had very mild symptoms.
Pelvic organ prolapse develops in many women following childbirth or with the ageing process. The ProlapLase Fotona treatment is designed to address women who have milder but symptomatic forms of pelvic organ prolapse which interferes with their activities of daily living. Micropulses of laser energy are aimed at the areas which have undergone prolapse and to the whole vaginal surface. Women can expect increased strength of vaginal tissue with an improved ability to support surrounding pelvic structures and a reduction in symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse.
Laser gynaecology treatment is not just for younger women but is also an effective treatment for older women suffering from menopause-related vaginal dryness. ProlapLase vaginal treatment delivers focussed microbeams of non-ablative laser energy to stimulate the regeneration of the vaginal tissue with an improved in vascularity. Vaginal atrophy symptoms can be substantially improved with higher levels of lubrication and symptomatic relief of vaginal dryness and discomfort.
Recent studies had demonstrated that after the RenovaLase® procedure more than 95% of menopausal women experienced a significant reduction in vaginal dryness, irritation and pain during intercourse.

How do laser gynaecology treatments work?The treatments work by stimulating the body’s own regenerative potential. Laser pulses are delivered to the tissue in an optimal, patented laser mode that produces gentle heat pulses in the vaginal mucosal lining, stimulating the formation of new collagen and strengthening vaginal wall support.
What are the age restrictions for laser vaginal treatment?The treatments are recommended for adult women of all ages. The effectiveness of the treatment may be reduced with advanced age due to the decreased capacity of the body’s natural regeneration process, which is the mechanism behind the Fotona SMOOTH® procedures.
Should I have a gynaecological examination before treatment?Yes, they should consult their gynecologists and have a standard gynecological examination, including a pap-smear, prior to starting the treatment.
Can I have laser vaginal treatment if I am going through the menopause?Yes, menopausal women can have the treatment. In the case of severe dryness and irritation, it is recommended to first start with the RenovaLase® treatment, which has been specially developed to treat the symptoms of genitourinary syndrome of menopause. This can then be followed up with treatments for stress urinary incontinence or prolapse, if needed.
How many vaginal laser treatments will I require?Two to three procedures with 4-6 week intervals are commonly performed and achieve optimal results. However, some patients may require additional treatments.
