The vaginal wall loses elasticity as we get older, and other factors, such as childbirth, cause further degeneration. We use pioneering FemiWand technology to treat vaginal laxity.
The applicator uses HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound). Multiple HIFU beams converge at calculated points beneath the superficial layer of the vaginal wall. Upon convergence, the beams create a node of thermal energy which triggers a healing response in the body.
How does it work?
The treatment involves inserting a wand-like device into the vagina that emits High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to depths of 3.0mm and 4.5mm in the vaginal wall. The 4.5mm depth targets the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS). As a result of this, the treatment tightens the muscles in addition to the skin within the vagina. The ultrasound beams cause a small source of heat when they converge at their determined depth. Thermal energy stimulates the collagen within the skin to repair and regrow, resulting in a tighter vaginal wall.
Our practitioners at Harley Ultrasound will do everything they can to make you feel comfortable during the procedure. The wand is lubricated, so it does not cause pain when inserted into the vagina. Furthermore, our practitioners can reduce the distance at which they insert the probe to increase your comfort. Our Vaginal Tightening procedure is non-invasive which makes it an appealing alternative to laser surgery. Our HIFU technology is so advanced that it can reach greater depths within the vaginal wall with little to no pain.
Due to the private nature of the vagina, we appreciate that this is difficult to talk about and treatment seems daunting. As a result of this, we invite you to come in for a consultation at Harley Ultrasound. We always ensure you see a female practitioner. Here at Harley Ultrasound, we strive to make sure that all of our clients have no doubts and are comfortable with treatments before agreeing to proceed. Our practitioners also discuss results with you, and what you can realistically expect to see after the procedure.
Results & Aftercare
The Vaginal Tightening treatment lasts approximately twenty minutes, and results can last for up to two years. Please note that you cannot have the treatment if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or menstruating on the day of the procedure. You are advised to avoid sexual intercourse for at least twenty-four hours before the treatment. Benefits of the procedure include greater sensation during sexual intercourse, a reduction in the dryness of the vagina and better control of urination.
You can choose between two types of Vaginal Tightening. The first is Superficial Tightening, which only targets the outer layers of the skin. The second type is Muscular Tightening, where the ultrasound penetrates the SMAS layer and leads to more effective tightening.
