Specialist Clinics of Australia is undergoing continuous research and development into the treatment parameters and patient variables of GynaeLase to continuously increase treatment efficacy of the gynaecology laser treatment.
Alternative medical treatments for many of the problematic symptoms of the female genital tract have not progressed significantly in recent years, and don’t appear to offer good symptomatic relief for many of the conditions women suffer (without risks or side effects).
The below issues can be improved by laser treatment of vaginal tissue:
Lasers have been introduced in only a few clinical Gynaecological centres in some parts of the world in recent years, but there has been little data published on the treatments with no rigorous statistical analysis comparing the efficacy of laser modalities (CO2 laser vs the Erbium laser).
By thoroughly documenting a patient’s initial symptoms, the improvements in their condition as the treatments progress and the details of the treatment parameters used, Specialist Clinics of Australia aims to perform rigorous statistical analysis on the data and draw evidence based conclusions.
Rigorous application of medical science to investigate the following:
- The effectiveness of two types of lasers (comparison between Erbium Yag and CO2)
- The ease and acceptability of treatment methods using the two lasers with new and different types of vaginal applicators to administer the laser techniques
- The improvement in vaginal laxity that could be achieved
- The effectiveness of the treatment on long-term control of bladder leakage and stress incontinence
- The effectiveness of the treatment in managing vaginal atrophy
- Laser types: Erbium Yag and CO2
- Applicator type (to deliver the laser shot to the affected skin area)
- Number of treatments
- Time between treatments
- Laser settings
Area treated: Vaginal / Vulval
Mode: Fractional LP / Non Fractional SM, Energy/ Heat level (J/cm2), Stacks / Dwell / Spacing / Pulse Width / No. pulses
- Symptom class (vaginal atrophy due to menopause; bladder leakage and stress incontinence; prolapse; vaginal laxity; general: age, children (if any) / vaginal deliveries / ceasarean deliveries/ past history of gynaecological procedures or operations
- Pap smear / date of last / history of abnormal?
- Menopausal symptoms
