Vaginal laxity and atrophy of tissue are mainly caused by aging and also in relation to the trauma of vaginal childbirths. This leads to loss of strength, flexibility, and lubrication of the vaginal walls. As a result it is common for a woman to then experience vaginal, sexual, and even urinary symptoms. At Nourish we have several FDA cleared options to treat these symptoms.
- Forma V: This is a small vaginal probe that uses heat to treat the internal and external tissue and increase circulation, stimulate collagen, and increase blood flow to the tissue. This is a painless and quick procedure. We time these sessions every 2-4 weeks for three treatments.
- Morpheus8 V: This option is good for someone who has more tissue to treat or is experiencing more symptoms. This option involves using a topical numbing cream vaginally internally and externally. Once treatment area is numbed the Morpheus8V uses small micro-needles to provide mechanical tissue injury along with radio-frequency energy to provide thermal injury which results in improvement in tissue laxity, blood flow, and collagen stimulation. While this sounds scary and painful, it is not! We take patient comfort seriously and with the topical anesthetic this procedure is very tolerable. This treatment is done 4 weeks apart three times.
- Vtone: This is a gentle technology which uses electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) and neuromuscular feedback with a very small vaginal probe. This is painless and has FDA backing to treat pelvic floor weakness and urinary incontinence (stress, urge, and mixed) by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. This involves a series of 6 sessions every 1-3 weeks.
- Tone: Did you know that your pelvic floor strength is connected to your core abdominal strength? The tone involves two applicators that sit on your abdominal muscles and provides gentle electrical muscle stimulation to help restore your abdominal muscle strength. We like to pair this up with any of the above treatments. Treatment schedule for the Tone is 6 sessions every 1-3 weeks just like the V-tone.
