What is it?
Vaginal rejuvenation is a nonsurgical vaginal tightening treatment for women who want to reclaim what childbirth or aging may have taken away. The procedure involves utilizing HIFU (high focused ultrasound) energy waves to target the layers of your skin just below the surface. The ultrasound energy causes underlying vulvovaginal tissues to heat up quickly. Once the cells in your targeted area have reached a specific temperature, they experience cellular damage, in turn, causing the cells to create more collagen and elastin to repair the area. The increase in collagen and elastin production gradually results in tighter, firmer and smoother skin in the vaginal area. Since the ultrasound energy is focused on tissues below the skin’s surface, there is no damage experienced to the outer layers of the skin.
Who can have it?
Mostly all women 21 and over are good candidates for vaginal rejuvenation. It is completely noninvasive and virtually no discomfort. There are not many limitations on who can get the procedure. Ideal candidates are women who feel vaginal laxity and looseness; tampons don’t stay in like they used to; have more vaginal flatulence; and penetration with intercourse and foreplay does not feel like it used to (often after childbirth).

With V-Vigorate, you are tightening and essentially turning back the clock internally and externally in the vaginal area. However, after undergoing the necessary three to four treatments that are recommended, you may need and want a touch up. Results vary from person to person depending on the patient’s primary concern. A touch up treatment could be done, 6, 9, or even 12 months after your last initial series of treatments. The inner vaginal tightening can last about 9-15 months. Everyone is different, but like most tightening procedures, it will not last forever as you continue to age.
