Some of the most common health problems among women that are caused by a deteriorating laxity, elasticity and tightness of mucous membranes are vaginal relaxation (and the associated loss of sexual gratification) and stress urinary incontinence. Recently, two novel minimally invasive, non-ablative Er:YAG laser techniques have been introduced, a vaginal tightening therapy IntimaLaseTM and a stress urinary incontinence therapy IncontiLase TM , which show the potential to become an optimal… 
Erbium laser in gynecology
TLDR
The results have shown that SMOOTH-mode erbium laser seems to be an effective and safe method for treating vaginal laxity, stress urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapses and vaginal atrophy.
Laser in the Treatment of Stress Urinary Incontinence and Syndrome of Relaxed Vaginal Walls
TLDR
The results showed that SMOOTH mode erbium laser is an effective and safe method for treatment of vaginal walls weakness, stress urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and vaginal atrophy.
Laser Vaginal Tightening with Non-ablative Er : YAG for Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome . Evaluation of Patient Satisfaction .
TLDR
Non-ablative LVT should be offered to patients who seek surgery because of a sensation of wide vagina and most patients are likely to be satisfied with the results and thus avoid the risks and/or cost of surgery.
Female urine incontinence: vaginal erbium laser (VEL) effectiveness and safety
TLDR
VEL procedures already have their place between the rehabilitation of the perineal floor and surgery, and properly sized, randomized studies are needed to evaluate the laser treatments in comparison with other therapies, as well as to assess the duration of the therapeutic effects and the safety of repeated applications.
Treatment of female stress urinary incontinence with Erbium-YAG laser in non-ablative mode.
Minimally invasive, non-ablative Er:YAG laser treatment of stress urinary incontinence in women—a pilot study
TLDR
Non-ablative Er:YAG laser therapy is a promising minimally invasive non-surgical option for treating women with SUI symptoms and shows clinically relevant and statistically significant improvement after all follow-ups compared to baseline scores.
Patient Satisfaction with Vaginal Erbium Laser Treatment of Stress Urinary Incontinence, Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome and Genito-urinary Syndrome of Menopause
TLDR
This procedure is a quick and minimally invasive in-office alternative treatment, without side effects, that is effective and easily tolerated by patients and 98% would recommend the treatment to other patients.
Management of Vaginal Atrophy, Vaginal Hyperlaxity and Stress Urinary Incontinence with Intravaginal High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
TLDR
The results of this prospective pilot study, involving a cohort of 30 patients that were clinically analyzed, answered validated questionnaires and underwent preand post-treatment biopsies, confirm the assumptions about its potential therapeutic effect and offer positive and valid conclusions to consider its use necessary as the preferred therapy or complementary to laser and other therapies with published evidence.
CASE REPORT : Combined Er : YAG and Nd : YAG Laser Treatment for Non-invasive Body Contouring
TLDR
This method, which was later developed into the TightSculptingTM procedure, has proven to be a non-invasive, safe and comfortable body-sculpting solution with long-lasting effects.

Ablation and Thermal Depths in VSP Er : YAG Laser Skin Resurfacing
TLDR
A theoretical micro-explosions computer (MEC) model is developed that explicitly links laser and tissue parameters with the clinical end effects of ablation and residual heat deposition in skin, and has already been implemented in the latest VSP Er:YAG laser systems as a software tool for automatic calculation of the expectedAblation and thermal depths in clinical procedures.
Fractional laser skin resurfacing.
TLDR
Fractional LSR has achieved the middle ground; it combined the efficacy of traditional LSR with the safety of nonablative modalities, striking the balance between safety and efficacy.

TLDR
Results were judged to be excellent in individuals with thin skin and good in subjects with thicker skin, and one pass of low fluence erbium:YAG resurfacing, under topical anesthesia, was effective for the treatment of mild to moderate photoaging.

TLDR
Erbium:YAG laser‐technology enables us to perform a highly precise skin ablative work, which can be most helpful in the removal of circumscribed skin lesions of ageing skin as well as in larger skin resurfacing procedures.
