Vaginal Rejuvenation - Pelvic Floor Strengthening

Pelvic Floor Diagram

What is the pelvic floor and why is it important?

The pelvic floor muscles are located between the tailbone (coccyx) and the pubic bone within the pelvis. They support the bowel and bladder (as well as the uterus and vagina in females).

A strong pelvic floor is necessary for optimum sexual function. A weakened pelvic floor can bring a lot of uncomfortable consequences, ranging from urine leakage to incontinence of both your bladder and bowels.

In women, contraction of the pelvic floor muscles can increase the amount of blood circulation to the clitoris and pelvic region, which in turn increases arousal and vaginal sensation. In men, this muscle group is also partially responsible for gaining and sustaining an erection.

Who benefits from vaginal rejuvenation treatment?

The pelvic floor can become weaker due to age, menopause, pregnancies, or weight gain. Athletes, or people who play high impact sports (such as basketball, netball or running), are also at increased risk of developing pelvic floor weakness. This is because of the constant and excessive downward pressure that these sports place on their pelvic floor. Signs that you may have a weak pelvic floor include: accidentally leaking urine when you exercise, laugh, cough or sneeze, needing to get to the toilet in a hurry or not making it there in time, constantly needing to go to the toilet, and reduced sensation in the vagina. This treatment can help anyone who leaks urine and it is also useful for females who want to increase sexual satisfaction.

How does it work?

This non-invasive treatment involves sitting on a device that looks like a regular chair which uses electromagnetic energy to cause thousands of pelvic floor muscle contractions (kegels) in each 30 minute session. The powerful but harmless form of electromagnetic stimulation contracts the muscles in a targeted area. You remain fully clothed for the entire treatment. There is no pain and no recovery time. You will feel a slight pulsing, vibrating, and tightening sensation in your perineal area during the treatment.  We can control the intensity of the contractions as each client tolerates.  With each treatment the goal is to gradually increase intensity and the strength of the pelvic floor. Did we mention that you can leave all your clothes on the entire time?! Amazing.

What are the benefits?

Reduce stress incontinence (leaking urine with laughing, sneezing or jumping) up to 95%. This treatment can also result in tighter vaginal canal which improves the sensation of the vaginal tissues. This increases sexual pleasure, boosts sex drive, and makes it easier to achieve orgasm.

How many treatments do I need?

Some patients report feeling improvement after a single treatment.

The recommended protocol is 2 treatments per week for 3 weeks for initial treatment.

 Packages are available.

Benefits usually are maintained for about 6 months and then single maintinence treatments may be completed as needed periodically every 3-6 months. Doing pelvic floor strengthening exercises, like kegels, at home can also help to maintain the benefits achieved with treatment.

What are the side effects?

There are really no side effects. You may experience temporary mild soreness or tired sensation of the area but that’s about it.

What contraindications are there to receive the Treatment?

This treatment is performed while you are sitting on a chair, so naturally an inability to sit for a 30 minute treatment duration would not be conducive to treatment.

 

Some other contraindications to receiving treatment are:

  • metal hardware in your spine, particularly lower back.
  • history of Hip replacement
  • if you have Cardiac pacemaker
  • if you have a Penile Implant
  • if you have pain pump
  • if you have history of active seizures
  • if you have had recent pelvic floor surgery (< 3 months)

How to prepare for your treatment?

  • It’s a 30 minute session duration
  • Patients are asked to empty their bladders prior to treatment.
  • Remove any metal devices from the body
  • Remove any metal clothing accessories such as belts
  • Remove private body piercings such as clitoral rings, penile rings, etc
