Vaginal Laxity

Vaginal Laxity

Vaginal laxity is a condition that occurs when the vaginal tissues are weakened or damaged, most commonly by vaginal childbirth or the menopause. The symptoms of vaginal laxity include a feeling of ‘looseness’ in the vagina, which can also lead to decreased pleasure for both partners during sex. A variety of other symptoms stem from vaginal laxity, including vaginal dryness and lack of lubrication, which may also make sex uncomfortable or even painful.

 
Vaginal laxity is a condition that is incredibly under-researched, and this aspect of women’s health has been ignored for many years. As more women become confident to share their stories, the full impact of conditions like vaginal laxity is beginning to be understood, but we still have a long way to go. 81% of Obstetricians and Gynecologists report that vaginal laxity often goes unreported by their patients, and is therefore left untreated. As a result, this can greatly affect women’s sexual experience, as well as their general health and well-being. Katie Alex is passionate about destigmatising these aspects of women’s health and intimate health. Many of her patients are truly amazed by the incredible results of Ultra Femme treatment and the incredible impact it has had on their sex lives, self-confidence and overall well being.

Ultra Femme 360 can help to improve vaginal laxity and tighten the vagina by gently heating the cells within the vaginal canal. This kickstarts the body’s natural tissue regeneration processes, which creates more collagen in the area. Collagen is the protein within tissues that helps to give it volume, plumpness and elasticity, creating stronger, healthier tissue overall. This leads to a tighter vaginal canal and increased sensation during sex for both partners, as well as a decrease in symptoms of stress incontinence, which commonly occur alongside symptoms of vaginal laxity.

 


What is Ultra Femme 360 and How Can it Help to Treat Symptoms of Vaginal Laxity?

Ultra Femme 360 is an incredible treatment that uses radiofrequency to improve muscle tone and deliver exceptional results, without any need for surgical intervention.

After applying a gel to the skin surrounding the vagina, the disposable tip of the Ultra Femme device is gently inserted into the vagina. The internal treatment involves gently moving the device back and forth inside the vaginal canal. Radiofrequency (RF) waves are emitted as the tip of the device is moved, and these waves penetrate the cells and tissues in the vaginal wall. By doing so, the cells in the area are gently heated, which induces collagen production, thereby strengthening the vaginal muscles, tightening the opening of the vaginal canal, and precisely targeting symptoms of vaginal laxity.

The radiofrequency energy is applied in pulses to the labia and clitoris during the external part of the procedure to refresh, plump and enhance the appearance of the treatment area. Neither the internal nor external procedures cause pain to the skin or internal tissues. The most common feedback we hear from women about the Ultra Femme treatment process is a pleasant warming sensation that some patients compare to a hot stone massage. The Ultra Femme treatment process usually takes around 30 minutes total, for internal and external treatments.

Patients can choose to receive both internal and external treatments in separate sessions, but most choose to do both at the same time, making Ultra Femme one of the most efficient, comfortable and effective ways to rejuvenate the intimate area. Ultra Femme’s unique wand design also creates an exceptionally quick treatment process, with the internal treatment lasting around 8 minutes, and the external treatment lasting around 4 minutes.

Ultra Femme treatment is carried out over a course of 3 sessions, spaced from 10-14 days apart. After your first treatment, you’ll be able to instantly see and feel the results, but these results will actually continue to improve over time, both between sessions and after your final session. As the collagen rebuilding process continues, you’ll continue to see improvements, and optimum treatment results are usually seen around 4-12 weeks after your final session!
