Things like aging and vaginal childbirth can cause the intimate area to exhibit unwelcome changes like dryness and looseness. Vaginal laxity is a common concern and is one of the reasons why some women consider or turn to vaginoplasty. This is to tighten up the area and improve sexual sensitivity.
What is vaginoplasty?
Surgical vaginoplasty is said to tighten and strengthen the vaginal walls to enable better sensation and confidence during intercourse. It is performed under general anesthesia and involves the removal of skin inside the vagina. The surgeon will determine the level of tightening needed.
Tightening of the vaginal tissue is possible through surgery, but you have to take note that this does not always guarantee improved arousal or sensation. This is because sexual response, orgasm, and arousal are complex and conditioned by different factors. There are also cases where vaginal reconstruction can result in pain and discomfort.
What if you’re not ready for surgery?
While some patients bothered with laxity may benefit from vaginoplasty, not everyone is a good candidate or willing to go under the knife. If you too have the same concern, a nonsurgical alternative called Ultra Femme 360 is worth considering. This uses ultrasound energy and radiofrequency waves to rejuvenate the area.
What is Ultra Femme 360 and how does it work?
Ultra Femme 360 is a nonsurgical treatment that can help improve vaginal laxity and enhance sexual satisfaction. Clinical studies also suggest that it can improve loss of bladder control and urinary incontinence.
It works by using a handheld device that simultaneously delivers ultrasound energy and radiofrequency waves. It involves the insertion of a 360° disposable tip inside the vaginal canal. Then, the tip will be moved alongside the whole length of the vaginal canal using slow repeating motion, forward and backward.
Ultra Femme 360 treats the vaginal tissues, leading to collagen production and improved blood flow. This then results in an immediate contraction and triggers neocollagenesis (the process of building new collagen). Results include improved elasticity and additional tightening that can continue over the next three to four months.
Who is a good candidate for the procedure?
This procedure is ideal for women who want a nonsurgical rejuvenation of their vaginal health. Patients bothered with mild to moderate vaginal laxity, dryness, and stress urinary incontinence are more likely to benefit from Ultra Femme and see improvement than those with severe or significant looseness in the tissues.
What does Ultra Femme feel like? Is there any downtime?
The procedure involves heating your intimate area, but this is not painful, but has a comfortable warming sensation. You may notice mild swelling and redness after the treatment, but this subsides within a few hours.
There is no downtime, but you have to follow your doctor’s after-care instructions. These include avoiding intercourse or insertion of tampons for two days to avoid irritating the area.
How fast will you see results and how many sessions do you need?
The results vary from patient to patient and may depend on a number of factors. These include the level of tissue laxity and your own body’s response to the procedure. In general, you may be able to see improvements after the first session, but overall results further improve after the third procedure.
The standard number of treatments is three sessions, scheduled weekly or with at least 10 days interval. A consultation with aesthetic doctor in Singapore will help determine the number of treatments needed, as well as tailor a plan that suits your needs.
Are there any preparations before the procedure?
Here at Cutis Laser Clinics, you will have to fill out an assessment form and have a consultation with our aesthetic doctor. This is to determine if Ultra Femme is right for you.
In preparation for the treatment, you will need to provide in advance your latest Pap smear result done within 6 to 12 months. You should also wait at least 10 days after the last day of your menstruation and need to shave all the hair in your intimate area before the procedure.
