Female Rejuvenation

About Female Rejuvenation

Vaginal tightening and pelvic floor strengthening are popular treatments with high patient satisfaction. It is possible to heat-shrink and tighten the vaginal mucosa with the use of laser (Fotona G-Runner) or radiofrequency (ThermiVa) energy, while the pelvic floor can be strengthened with high intensity focused electromagnetic technology (Emsella). These treatments are not only helpful to women with stress incontinence (urinating when exercising, coughing, or sneezing), but they also increase pelvic support and sensitivity during sexual intercourse. They are simple, quick, and comfortable procedures performed with minimal or no downtime.

What are the symptoms of vaginal laxity?

      • Stress incontinence: losing urine when sneezing, coughing, or exercising
      • Decreased sensation during sexual intercourse
      • Decreased support for the pelvis causing the uterus and cervix to sag
      • Decreased lubrication
      • Painful intercourse
      • Dryness or itching

What are the benefits of laser and radiofrequency tightening of the vagina?

Treatment of the vagina with laser or radiofrequency can help all the above symptoms. Extensive studies have been performed and published in medical literature showing high patient satisfaction in the treatment of these conditions with a series of simple treatments with minimal or no discomfort or down time.

How does Fotona G-Runner and ThermiVA treatment improve the health, tightness, lubrication, and sensation of the vagina?

Both laser and radiofrequency heat the vaginal wall to stimulate collagen crosslinking, thereby tightening the vaginal walls. In addition, these treatments stimulate vaginal mucosal glands to increase lubrication, circulation, and sensitivity.

How are Fotona G-Runner and ThermiVA treatments performed?

Both the Fotona G-Runner laser and ThermiVA radiofrequency are performed as a series of treatments (usually about 3) spaced about one month apart. Treatments are comfortable, take 20 to 45 minutes per treatment session, and do not require hospitalization, anesthesia, or down time. These treatments can be performed during a lunch hour, and you may return immediately to work or other activities. Minimal discharge in some women may require the use of a sanitary pad, and/or avoidance of sex for a day or two following the laser treatment. Maintenance treatments may be recommended yearly for long lasting results.

How do I prepare for treatment with Fotona G-Runner and ThermiVA?

You will need a current gynecological exam within one year of having treatment. This is to check for the general health of the vagina and to screen for any abnormal conditions including infection or cancer.

What is the Emsella chair and how can it help me?

The Emsella chair uses HIFEM (high intensity focused electromagnetic technology) to contract and strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor. This can be an extremely helpful addition for women suffering from pelvic floor instability, stress incontinence, and decreased arousal. Treatments consist of a series of 30 minute painless, zero downtime procedures. You can literally strengthen your pelvic floor while you read a book as you sit on the Emsella chair and let the HIFEM energy contract your muscles for you!

What is the O-SHOT® (Orgasm Shot)?

The O-Shot is a procedure where PRP (platelet rich plasma) from the patient’s blood is injected into the G-spot and other areas around the clitoris to increase sensitivity during sexual intercourse. This treatment may be combined on the same day with a vaginal tightening procedure.
