What is HIFU Vaginal Rejuvenation?

With the effects of childbirth, menopause, and aging, the tissue and/or skin of the outer and inner vagina can become lax, causing functional complications. HIFU vaginal rejuvenation is an advanced nonsurgical treatment that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology to strengthen the inside of the vagina and treat vaginal atrophy (thinning), sexual dysfunction, and vaginal dryness. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jean-Denis Boucher is pleased to offer HIFU vaginal rejuvenation for women of all ages at Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic in San Antonio, TX. Personalized based on the needs of the patient, nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation stimulates the growth of collagen, which in turn strengthens the vaginal skin's resilience and elasticity while improving the outer aesthetic.

Am I A Candidate For HIFU Vaginal Rejuvenation?

You could be a great candidate for HIFU vaginal rejuvenation if you are looking to address certain vaginal issues or aesthetic concerns without having to undergo plastic surgery. This procedure may help strengthen your vaginal canal, reverse urinary incontinence, allow for increased production of natural vaginal moisture and lubrication, decrease sex-related pain, and amplify sexual pleasure and climax. It can cause significant results with no downtime. Most patients return to their daily activities after the treatment.

Our HIFU Vaginal Rejuvenation Technique

You might be a great candidate for nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation if you are interested in addressing vaginal laxity or appearance without having to undergo plastic surgery. HIFU vaginal rejuvenation is performed at our San Antonio, TX office in about 30 minutes. For the procedure, a wand-shaped handpiece will be introduced to the exterior of your labia and vulva. The wand may be inserted into your vagina as the controlled ultrasound heat energizes the tissues and other internal structures to promote the production of collagen and elastin, which strengthens the area.

What To Expect After HIFU Vaginal Rejuvenation

Following your HIFU vaginal rejuvenation treatment, you can anticipate a smooth transition back to your daily activities, as this noninvasive procedure requires no recovery period. Dr. Boucher typically recommends patients undergo a series of three treatments, each spaced about a month apart, to maximize the benefits and achieve optimal results. The effects of this treatment are often profound and long-lasting, with many women reporting significant improvements in vaginal tightness, which can lead to a reduction in symptoms of urinary incontinence. Additionally, increased lubrication and enhanced sexual satisfaction are common outcomes, contributing to an overall improvement in sexual health and confidence. It's important to follow any specific aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Boucher to ensure the best possible results and to maintain the improvements achieved through HIFU vaginal rejuvenation.

HIFU Vaginal Rejuvenation FAQ

Is HIFU vaginal rejuvenation safe?
HIFU vaginal rejuvenation is generally considered safe for most patients. Since it uses ultrasound waves instead of laser light or RF (radiofrequency) energy, there is less risk of skin overheating or burns. The HIFU device is computer-controlled to monitor internal temperature and ensure the proper amount of ultrasound energy is delivered at safe levels. During your consultation at Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic, we will review your medical history and current condition to make sure HIFU vaginal rejuvenation is right for you.

Does HIFU vaginal rejuvenation hurt?
No, most patients don’t feel any pain or discomfort during their treatment sessions. No anesthesia is necessary, and most say that it feels somewhat like a warming sensation.

How long do results from HIFU vaginal rejuvenation last?
Most patients can expect their results to last between 18 months to three years.

What should I do to prepare for the HIFU vaginal rejuvenation procedure?
Specific preparation guidelines will vary, but generally, you should refrain from using any vaginal products or having sexual intercourse 48 hours before the treatment. Dr. Boucher can provide personalized advice prior to your sessions.

Can I undergo HIFU vaginal rejuvenation if I have an IUD?
Generally, it's considered safe to undergo HIFU vaginal rejuvenation if you have an IUD (intrauterine device) in place. However, it's crucial to consult with Dr. Boucher at Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic for a thorough evaluation of your individual circumstances and to discuss any potential risks or contraindications.

How does HIFU vaginal rejuvenation differ from laser vaginal rejuvenation?
HIFU uses high-intensity focused ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen production, whereas laser treatments use light energy. HIFU is often considered less risky because it doesn't involve laser light, which can sometimes cause burns or overheating.
