Many women experience loss of the optimal structural form of the vagina. This is generally associated with the overstretching of the vaginal canal during childbirth as well as with natural aging. For women with mild to moderate laxity, also known as Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome (VRS) this may result in stress urinary incontinence (SUI). At Vancouver Laser, we now have a unique and non invasive solution that offers vaginal tightening while treating stress incontinence.
