HIFU 4D Vaginal Tightening | Frequently Asked Questions
What Is HIFU 4D?
HIFU devices are among the world’s leaders in non-invasive cosmetic technology. The treatment uses radiofrequency energy and heating to gently restore youthful vaginal function and appearance. The technology is unique in its ability to penetrate the dermis and the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer, which is deeper than all other non-invasive treatments.
The SMAS is the layer that sits between the muscle and the fat, it is the actual area a plastic surgeon would pull and tighten under the knife. Therefore the SMAS is the same area tightened during conventional surgery, however, unlike surgery, HIFU is more affordable and requires no time off work.
What Areas Can Be Treated with HIFU 4D?
Who Can Undergo HIFU 4D Vaginal Tightening?
All women who are active in their sexual lives can undergo HIFU vaginal tightening. Vaginal tightening can be a solution for couples having enlargement and expansion complaints. These women usually have complaints like ‘I don’t feel anything with my partner’. After 6 sessions of HIFU vaginal tightening, both male and female partners feel tightening and ‘increased sensation’ during their sexual intercourse.
Increasing sexual pleasure
Vaginal tightening increases the pleasure both in male and female partner in sexual intercourse. Orgasm problems in women can be corrected also. Genital PRP applications can also be made at the same session if desired.
Vaginal dryness treatment
It may also be a solution for vaginal dryness in women depending on increasing blood circulation.
Treatment of urinary incontinence
It can also be applied for treatment in women with mild urinary bagging (prolapsus) and rectum sagging by having urinary continence problem. It can create a solution for those having urinary incontinence especially when sneezing or doing sports.
Treatment of frequent vaginitis (vaginal infection)
It can be applied for treatment purposes in women having a frequent vaginal infection and repeating fungal infection since these problems increase local immunity.
Treatment of menopausal skin thinning
HIFU Vaginal tightening is effective in vaginal dryness and painful sexual intercourse problems due to vulvovaginal atrophy (shrinking of the genital area, thinning of the skin), especially during menopause. The mechanism of action is again with the simulation of collagen. In the treatment of pain during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia), sexual intercourse pain may be related to ‘Vulvar Vestibulitis’ (Vulvar Vestibulitis Syndrome). In this case, sexual intercourse pain can be treated with ultrasound applications.
Lichen Sclerosus treatment
Thinning of the skin tissue, can result in complaints such as burning, itching, stinging may be associated with an autoimmune skin disease which is called as ‘lichen sclerosus’. In this case, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injection treatments are very beneficial together with ultrasound applications. Genital radiofrequency technologies are also used with the same indication.
How Is HIFU 4D Vaginal Tightening?
Ultrasound energy probe is typically used in this procedure. The probe rotates 360 degree automatically to ensure full vaginal therapy.
A HIFU Vaginal Tightening session lasts for about 20 minutes; it is a painless and comfortable procedure. Thanks to the new HIFU technology robotic arm we use in our clinic, setup period is reduced to 3 minutes and you can enjoy the sensual feeling and warmth of the energy working inside. No anesthesia is required. Patients can return to their normal lifestyle immediately after the procedure. But, no strenuous sport or sexual activities for only 24 hours.
For vaginal tightening and urinary incontinence treatments, usually 4 - 6 sessions are recommended within 3 weeks intervals. HIFU vaginal tightening has been a frequently preferred method in recent years than laser or topical gels, creams or pills. It is very satisfactory in the appropriate patient groups. It is a very important advantage to treat the patient without surgery.
The HIFU 4D treatment achieves an overall shrinkage of the vaginal opening and can reduce the size of the labia. Women typically will experience improvements in vaginal lubrication and sexual function following their treatment sessions.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Adult women of any age and skin tone are suitable for HIFU 4D treatment. Women in their 20s to women in the 60s have undergone treatment, and all have reported very favorable results. Patients should be in overall good health without health issues such as obesity, active infection, or the presence of a pacemaker.
Ideal candidates are women who have experienced a loss of vaginal tightness, decreased sexual function, urinary incontinence or are bothered by the appearance of a drooping, stretched labia minora and labia majora. Patients should have reasonable expectations for the treatment. As with any cosmetic treatment, patients should never choose a procedure to fit another person’s expectations. There is no such thing as a “perfect” vagina, but patients can achieve relief from symptoms that are bothersome thereby improving their self-confidence.
What's The Recovery Like?
Due to the simplicity and non-surgical nature of the procedure, there is no downtime after treatment. Women can immediately resume exercise, and normal sexual activity afterward and will notice their results instantaneously.
What Results Can I Expect?
Improved blood flow will produce visible improvement after just a single treatment. Sensitivity and function are also improved, typically resulting in an increased interest in sexual activity and self-confidence. Patient results are long-lasting because the HIFU 4D device triggers your body’s own natural, rejuvenation capabilities. Blood flow increases, vaginal tightening, and sexual function improvements are the result of a long-term enhancement in the vaginal and vulvar tissues.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Multiple sessions are often recommended to optimize improvements. The exact number of treatments will vary from patient to patient, depending on their body and particular goals for the treatment. At least three treatment sessions are usually recommended to achieve optimal results. Many patients see significant results after just one!
Touch-up treatments once a year are recommended to maintain consistent improvement, especially if patients undergo future childbirth and/or are entering menopause.
