What Our Clients Say

Since the menopause my sex life changed. Intimacy became a moment of embarrassment and pain instead of joy. It was hard for me to accept my sex life was over. A friend of mine advised me on the Juliet and I can’t thank her and my gynaecologist enough. Since the treatment my life has changed, I now feel like the woman I was before the menopause

Laura, 54

Within a day of having the treatment, I sneezed and I didn’t need to cross my legs!

Jo, 44

I have been suffering from urinary incontinence for many years, so I decided to try this new laser treatment. I didn’t feel any pain during the procedure and I can’t believe how good the results have been for me. It has been a year now since that treatment and it really works like magic! I still don’t have any problem anymore with accidental urination.

Natalia, 41
