The Juliet laser treatment leads to a restoration of the metabolism of connective tissue and to an improvement in the condition of the mucosa. This translates into an attenuation of the symptoms which can be observed immediately after the first treatment. The inner mucosa regain elasticity and lubrication, gaining thickness and softness. Itching, irritation and pain during intercourse disappear and the symptoms of stress urinary incontinence are also significantly reduced as a result of the stimulating action of the laser on the mucosa. This action continues its beneficial effect even after the treatment is finished and, for this reason, many women report further improvements during the first month post-treatment.

The healing times are very short, normally no longer than three days. During this time, some secretion may be noticed (pink colored for the first day, then white colored). This is a normal reaction and will disappear in a few days.

In most cases, satisfactory results can be obtained after the first session, with no need for further treatments. Depending on the severity of the symptoms however, a second treatment may be recommended after few months.

No medical treatment is completely risk-free. Normally, this laser treatment has minimal complications. Potential side-effects can include an increase in temperature and febrile response in the first day following treatment and/or odorless vaginal secretions.
