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.
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. After your treatment, you should be able to get back to your day without downtime. To get your best outcomes, Dr. Boucher typically recommends a series of three treatments spaced a month apart. Many women are able to achieve long-lasting results, including improved vaginal tightness, increased lubrication, and enhanced sexual climaxes.
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.
