What is vaginal tightening?

Vaginal tightening is the procedure of tightening the muscles and tissues inside the vagina using ultrasound. To a younger woman, this may not sound like something that could ever need to be done but naturally, over time, the collagen fibres within the vagina will start to lose their elasticity and ability to bounce back which in turn will cause it to be much looser and more relaxed.

For problems like this, the best solution available on the market are HIFU treatments, but what exactly are they? HIFU treatments are non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures that are proven to help improve the health and vitality of your vaginal tissue, as well as improving your quality of sex and helping to restore your body confidence.

What can cause reduced elasticity?

There are several reasons why these collagen fibres can lose their elasticity, with some of the more common reasons being;

  • Natural ageing
  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Giving birth to a child
  • Surgeries
  • Undergoing a Hysterectomy

These types of things can cause the natural collagen within the skin to be replaced with fibres that do not bounce back or stretch properly, and that is where HIFU treatments come in.

So what is HIFU?

HIFU stands for high intensity focused ultrasound and works exactly as the names states, by using high-intensity ultrasound waves that are focused on a specific area. By using this technique, the HIFU wand sends out ultrasonic waves to penetrate through the muscle fibre layer. Because of the way the wand is designed, the waves are programmed to penetrate to a certain level which is where the collagen responsible for the elasticity can be found.

The treatment works by stimulating the collagen within the layer of muscle fibre to tighten it and reorganise it to a predetermined layer of depth, with any regular tissue outside of the focal region remaining unaffected and undamaged to ensure that you achieve the desired level of vaginal tightening in the most effective possible way.

There is no big scary device used during the treatment, simply just a small single-use handpiece to provide a near painless treatment that will last approximately 20-30 minutes.

What happens after the treatment?

After the treatment, you can get back to your daily routine as normal (though you may experience a small amount of discomfort). Because the treatment itself is non-surgical, you are simply able to leave and continue with your day to day life, though it is not recommended to engage in any form of sexual activity for at least a week after your treatment as this may cause some irritation. You will begin to see your results after around a week but will be able to notice the difference almost immediately.

So if you’re experiencing a lack of confidence in the bedroom or unhappy with the elasticity of your vagina, why not look into vaginal tightening treatments? They may not only renew your confidence but the health benefits are amazing too, including increased lubrication and the elimination of incontinence!
