Lutronic's Action II Petit Lady™ Receives CE Mark Clearance for the Treatment of Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome & Stress Urinary Incontinence
Lutronic, a global leader of lasers and therapeutic devices for aesthetic and medical applications, announced today that Action II Petit Lady™ has received CE mark clearance for treatment of vaginal relaxation syndrome (VRS) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). VRS is a quite common medical condition described as a loss of the optimal vaginal structure and is usually associated with vaginal child delivery and natural aging. SUI refers to the involuntary loss of control of the bladder and it can occur following some normal activity, such as coughing, sneezing, running, heavy lifting or even just bending over.
Current VRS Treatments include surgical procedures and pharmacological therapies; the surgical options available require long recovery and like pharmacological options may cause unwanted side effects. Clinicians have been looking for a better minimally or non invasive solution that provides short downtimes and low risk of side effects.
Non-surgical and non-invasive treatment for vaginal rejuvenation
"Petit Lady is particularly recommended to menopausal patients, because the mechanism of laser remodelling not only rejuvenates the condition of the vagina but also enhances sexual gratification and better quality of life."
Lutronic worked with experienced clinicians to develop a new treatment that meets their patients’ needs. The Action II Petit Lady is a non-surgical, non-invasive and easy to perform laser treatment that enables gynecologists to effectively treat a wide range of vulva-vaginal symptoms and conditions and helps patients solve their most private problems.
“The Petit Lady approach is suggested for females who have vaginal relaxation syndrome but for whom a surgical procedure might not be appropriate because the symptoms are mild and the patient’s concern about pain and downtime. This laser procedure is suitable to be all pied in combination with vaginal muscle reconstruction to obtain a synergetic effect and to achieve better maintenance,” stated Hyung Keun Lee, MD, PhD., Chief director of RIZ Laser Cosmetic Vaginal Surgery Center which is the first clinic specializing in vaginoplasty in Asia. “Petit Lady is particularly recommended to menopausal patients, because the mechanism of laser remodelling not only rejuvenates the condition of the vagina but also enhances sexual gratification and better quality of life.”
This new CE approval enables the Action II Er:YAG laser system to expand its clinical applications and to build on the success of the original Action II device which primarily focused on aesthetic treatments; gaining CE approval for the treatment of scar revision, epidermal benign disorders and epidermal pigment lesions in December 2012.
“Action II Petit Lady is a device that provides a new dimension in Er:YAG laser technology applied to gynecological indications. It has 3 independent operating modes such as the multiple micropulsed mode, the long-pulsed mode up to 1000 ms and a unique Dual mode which allows a deeper secondary thermal effect and controlled heating of the delicate target tissues of the vaginal wall. These improved features also allow for swift wound healing and an excellent tissue tightening effect. The unique patent pending design of the intravaginal scopes provides a more efficient and comfortable procedure.” Stated Mr. S.H. Ko, Lutronic’s international sales director. "The market opportunity for Action II Petit Lady procedure in Europe is substantial and we're looking forward to expanding our presence in Europe,” he added.
Lutronic will initiate the commercial launch of Action II Petit Lady into the EU market through prestige retailers during the third quarter of 2014.
