European Market Report for Laser Technology and Dyspareunia Treatment 2016 - MedCore

The prevalence of non-invasive, outpatient procedures is fueling the growth of laser energy in gynecology. As controversy and concern over safety risks of alternative procedures gains more publicity, the safety and efficacy of lasers is compounding the positive growth of the market. Focusing on outpatient procedures, the different types of laser energy produce the best results, specific to certain procedures. There is preliminary clinical evidence supporting the use of lasers (both CO2 lasers and a combination of Nd: YAG and Er: YAG lasers) for the treatment of vaginal atrophy. There is not yet enough clinical evidence proving the effectiveness of laser treatments for stress urinary incontinence. However, patient reports following the procedure give a strong positive result that laser treatments do improve mild to moderate cases of stress urinary incontinence. As more clinical studies are completed, both in Europe and Internationally, the body of research analyzing the effects of lasers and patient outcomes is expected to increase significantly over the reporting period.

The application of laser technology in gynecology first emerged in 1973, when CO2 lasers were successfully used to treat cervical erosions. While the use of lasers for gynecology treatments is well established, the use of laser treatments has historically been more popular in the field of dermatology. Starting in 2012, there has been a resurgence of gynecologists investing in laser systems and the treatments are rapidly becoming more popular both with medical professionals and patients. Several types of lasers are available reflecting the advancements in the field of laser technology. The CO2 laser is the most versatile and common type of laser on the market. Due to its limited depth of penetration (0.1 mm to 0.5 mm) and lateral thermal damage (0.5 mm), CO2 lasers have been proven to be a safe and effective treatment option. Additional laser types include: neodymium: yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG), Erbium-YAG (Er:YAG), and Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL).
