Objectives & Outcomes of the Course
This course offers a new approach to vaginal atrophy and vaginal relaxation syndromes, some of the most common types of vaginal pathology. Laser therapy is used without surgical incision, it is a painless and a noninvasive treatment for women suffering from this condition. We are able to move away from long term hormone replacement therapies that have created concern and discomfort in some patients, and started a new era of recovering after childbearing. The ability to use non-invasive photo-thermal therapy brings a new hope for patients with breast cancer.
In this course participants will learn the stateof- the-art of vaginal collagen disease and its clinical diagnostic, trial of patients and the methodology behind the use of Laser therapy. The use of equipment and techniques will also be approached.
The objective of the course is to share with participants this new method and approach to vaginal atrophy and vaginal relaxation syndromes that has been proven to be very efficient and cost saving.
