Women’s bodies change throughout our lives. It’s natural. But that doesn’t mean we can’t acknowledge and treat the ensuing health problems caused by those changes.
So say it with me, ladies: Vaginal laxity, dryness and female incontinence are very common and totally natural.
They’re also easily treatable.
Why the Vagina Changes
There are a lot of things that can affect female genitalia over the years, but chief among them are hormonal changes and childbirth.
Our hormones fluctuate anyway, and especially due to pregnancy and menopause. Those fluctuations create real, physical changes, especially in the genitals. And childbirth, of course, can cause trauma to the vagina and surrounding area, which may manifest in long-term issues with intercourse, continence, and overall comfort.
Due to age and/or having children, the vagina becomes weak or loose, and you’re less able to control your urine.
How We Treat It
These various problems tend to stem from three basic issues: thinning tissue, poor circulation, and muscle atrophy. All three of those issues can be slowed and even reversed through High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU).
Without an incision, HIFU is able to penetrate deep into the genital tissue and surrounding areas. The high-frequency waves stimulate circulation as well as the production of collagen and elastin. That new tissue thickens and tightens the vagina while strengthening the surrounding muscles.
Those stronger muscles also help you control your bladder, greatly reducing female incontinence.
What You Experience
HIFU vaginal rejuvenation is a quick and simple procedure that takes around 30 minutes per session with no downtime. You may experience a warming sensation from the ultrasound device, but any discomfort will be minimal. Afterward, your body works its magic, continuing the rejuvenation process for the next few days.
You’ll start to feel more comfortable, better sensation during sex, and fewer bladder leaks.
One HIFU session can produce noticeable results, but some women may require three sessions to achieve maximum effect. Those results can last 12 months or longer. We’re happy to have you come back in for a maintenance session the following year as needed.
