Treatment to Tighten your vagina and gain back bladder control
Vaginal tightening treatments at About Face Brisbane are helping women all over the world get their confidence back
Vaginal tightening treatments are the perfect solution for women who are self-conscious of their “down there,” or want great sex again. If you have noticed vaginal laxity, you are not alone. Vaginal relaxation syndrome (looseness of the vagina) is a very common condition for women, especially after childbirth. If you’ve considered Vaginoplasty (plastic surgery for the vagina), you’ve probably discovered how expensive and risky it is.
The great news is that About Face Brisbane has a much better solution: IntimaLase, a 30-minute painless laser treatment with no side effects. You will feel like your old self again, or even better than before.
Vaginal tightening treatments for vaginal relaxation syndrome: Key Facts
Vaginal tightening treatments – why are they needed? What is vaginal relaxation syndrome?
The vulva has tissues that are elastic which help the muscles and wall of the vagina to contract and relax. Childbirth (which can cause a stretching and tearing of the vaginal wall muscles) and the natural ageing process can reduce the tightness of the muscles surrounding the vulva, which causes vaginal relaxation syndrome.

IntimaLase is the latest in advance Laser technology. It is pain-free, safe and quick. There are no special pre-or post-operative precautions, and no surgery or anaesthesia required. Best of all only one or two treatments are necessary. The majority of patients see significant improvements within a very short period of time after their first treatment. Your partner will notice the difference with satisfying results.
IntimaLase – what is it?
IntimaLase is a 30 minute non-surgical, pain-free laser treatment which targets the vaginal tissue. The heat of the laser focuses on the tissues surrounding the vaginal wall which stimulates collagen growth resulting in tightening of the vaginal canal and some of the inner labial tissue.
IntimaLase – how does it treat vaginal relaxation syndrome?
IntimaLase uses thermal energy produced by a laser to target collagen growth on the vaginal canal. An attachment, which is like a pap-smear speculum, is inserted four to six centimetres into the vagina and short pulses from the device are targeted on the area. Stimulating the vagina tissue helps to restore the tissue and increase blood flow to the vaginal wall. The stimulation of fresh collagen helps to tighten vaginal walls.
What should I expect before, during and after IntimaLasetreatment?
You will meet Dr Campeywho will discuss your concerns to see if IntimaLase is the right treatment for you. Before the treatment can proceed you need to provide to Dr Campey your latest Pap smear results (the results should be within the last 12 months or less).
You do not need to fast or have any blood tests done before the treatment. You must not be menstruating when having the procedure. The best time to have this treatment performed is during the first week following your period.
Karen Campey, our laser technician, will be present throughout the whole procedure. She will also explain the IntimaLase process, after-care instructions and answer any questions you may have.
You will sit in a comfortable position on a treatment table in a private treatment room. You can wear your own clothes but a pair of shorts will be provided that has a small slit in them to ensure your comfort and privacy is maintained throughout the procedure. While your feet will be slightly elevated in stirrups, only a very small amount of skin on your lower body will be exposed thanks to the specially designed shorts.
A handpiece type speculum will be gently inserted into the vagina and a series of short, safe pulses will be targeted in the vaginal canal. This is painless and no incisions or anaesthetic are required. With the procedure taking 30 minutes to be completed, you can even have this done on your lunch break or before kids get home from school.
Dr Campey will perform the IntimaLase laser treatment with Karen Campey present to explain each step and reassure any concerns you may have. Karen has been treated with IntimaLase and our patients tell us it’s very reassuring to have someone with first-hand experience explaining everything to them.
This is a simple walk in and walk out procedure where you can get back to your usual daily routine right away. However, there is the chance of mild side effects such as slight redness and swelling and a discharge (transparent) for two to three days. This is normal and nothing to be concerned about. There is no bleeding, no stitches and no medications are necessary.
Below are the after-care requirements which you need to follow to ensure the treatment is successful:
- You must make sure there is no trauma to the area. No strenuous activities and no sexual intercourse for two weeks after the treatment.
- Do not use tampons for a period of four weeks after the procedure.
The results of IntimaLase will take one to four months to take full effect.
This will be explained to you during your initial consultation with Dr Campey and some take-home information will be given to you as well.
Will my partner and I notice the difference?
Yes. Clinical results show that the growth of tissue from the collagen stimulation tightens the vaginal canal which means greater sexual satisfaction to the woman and their partner. Most women who have IntimaLase say that they experienced more intense sensations and deeper orgasms. Upon starting up sexual activity after abstaining for 2 weeks you will notice the difference and this will continue to improve for up to four weeks. There is no better time to try IntimaLase today – your partner will thank you for it.
How much does IntimaLase cost?
One session of IntimaLase costs $700. Medicare rebates are available.
This treatment can be paid for with zipPay, meaning you only have to pay for a small amount of the treatment price on the day. Please do not confuse zipPay with zipMoney, as we are not able to process zipMoney payments.
How many treatments will I need?
Generally, only one treatment is necessary however individual results may vary and you may need to have a second treatment to enjoy the full benefits. This can also be a personal preference where you feel another treatment might improve your tightness just that bit more.
Other useful information about IntimaLase
Is IntimaLase painful?
No. IntimaLaseis not painful. Most patients experience a warm sensation in the vaginal area.
Depending on the thin tissue of the walls of the vagina some women may experience some mild discomfort (a burning or itching sensation) at the entrance to the vagina. Dr Campey will discuss these concerns at your initial consultation to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
Is Intimalase the same thing as IncontiLase?
No. Although they both use the Fotona Laser machine, IntimaLase treats the entire vaginal canal with short pulses that have a different laser strength to IncontiLase. This is why IntimaLase will not help with Stress Urinary Incontinence.
Will IntimaLase treatment stop me from being able to have a baby?
No. Intimalase does not cause sterility or will not prevent you from falling pregnant or your ability to give birth naturally.
I’m not ready to try laser treatments yet – how can I tighten my vagina naturally?
If laser treatments aren’t an option for you right now then Kegel exercises might help to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
- Start by squeezing your internal pelvic muscles – the same ones that stop yourself from peeing when you don’t want to go straight away. You can do this inconspicuously and at your leisure. Try it the next time you use the toilet.
- Once you have learned how to use these muscles repeat the exercise numerous times throughout the day.
We sell Kegel balls out our clinic for $55 including GST. However, Kegel exercises only work for the pelvic floor and they do not improve the tightness of the vaginal tissue. It is important to choose a professional clinic that uses high-quality laser machines that are used by fully qualified laser technicians and doctors. At About Face Brisbane we offer superior results from our quality IntimaLase machine and expert advice from Dr Campey and Karen Campey – your comfort and satisfaction are our number one priority.
