Vaginal Rejuvenation with BTL Ultrafemme 360 (or ‘Radiofrequency’)

Vaginal rejuvenation can be extremely beneficial for women who have:

  • vaginal relaxation (loose or too wide vagina)
  • stress urinary incontinence (leaking urine when jumping, sneezing, coughing, running)
  • dryness of vagina (or atrophic vaginitis)
  • frequent vaginal infections have excellent results with the treatment

BTL Ultrafemme 360

Ultrafemme 360 uses radiofrequency and ultrasound technology to gently heat up and shrink collagen fibers. This stimulates the production of new collagen in the vaginal tissue.

Each treatment session is 8 minutes long and involves the insertion of a vaginal probe into the vaginal canal, as well as passing the probe along the outer lips of the vagina. The probe has different form-fitting applicator tips to account for each unique vaginal canal size and shape so the treatment is not painful at all, although the probe might feel surprisingly warm. The temperature will be adjusted to suit your heat tolerance. The heat is distributed evenly across the probe which minimises any discomfort.

The treatments are carried out once a week for a recommended 3 to 6 sessions and there is no downtime. Patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately after the procedure as any redness or mild swelling will disappear after a few hours.

No preparation is required and the treatment is great for menopausal women, women that have relatively recently given birth and women that live with stress urinary incontinence. The results include improved skin texture, tightness and sensation and although improvements can be noticeable from the first treatment session, full results can be felt and seen approximately 3 months after your final treatment.
