Women’s Intimate Vaginal Health is a special topic at Impressions MedSpa because there have been such poor treatments available for women. You already know the symptoms. Painful intercourse, vaginal dryness, burning, decreased pleasurable sensations, and bladder leakage! If you bring up the subject with your regular doctor, you’ll likely get an inadequate answer during your 5 minute office visit. If your doctor does respond, he/she will most likely tell you to use vaginal lubricants, or prescribe a hormone cream. Does this sound all too familiar?
We’re happy to report that FINALLY an alternative option is available! And, we’re NOT talking about surgery, gels, creams, hormones, or lubricants. Sound too good to be true?
Let us introduce you to our radiofrequency (RF) Vaginal Health procedure for improved vaginal function. It is one of the newest and we believe is the most important innovation in women’s vaginal health ever! Studies have already been done which show the benefits of radiofrequency treatments on normal skin. There is collagen stimulation, new blood vessel growth, and an overall growth of the underlying skin layers. Now the idea is being used on the vaginal walls to achieve a similar affect. Our personal experience is that it will dramatically improve your vaginal health, your sexual experience, and your life.
The wand of the RF handpiece is slowly passed into and then out of the vagina. As this is done, radiofrequency (RF) waves pass outward from the wand and stimulate collagen and elastin fibers within the vaginal walls. The result is an increase in the vaginal wall tissues, an increase in vaginal lubrication, stimulation of new blood vessels, and an increase in circulation. In other words, there is a reversal of atrophy, which affects nearly every woman. Better circulation leads to better sensations, before, during, and after sexual intercourse. And for many women, there is also a reduction in urinary incontinence.
The vaginal procedure takes about 11 minutes per session and is performed once per week for 3 weeks. Many patients have reported improvements after a single treatment session, but results will continue to improve over the next few months.
With no downtime you may resume normal activity immediately after the treatment.
While the treatment is underway, you will feel a pleasant and comfortable heat. After the treatment you may notice mild redness and swelling but this goes away within a few hours. Temperature and local circulation increase, which carries more blood to the intimate areas and is thought to play a crucial role in increasing a women’s intimate well-being and restoring a more youthful vagina.
Thanks to advances in new technology, we’re able to offer treatments like never before. RF technology is currently FDA cleared for relief of pain and an increase in local circulation on the general skin. The vaginal walls are very similar to our external skin which has led to these vaginal treatments. The RF vaginal health treatments have not been cleared by the FDA and so treatment of the vaginal walls in this manner is considered off-label.
