27 November Stress Incontinence
BTL Ultra Femme 360™
BTL Ultra Femme 360™ is a revolutionary non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment providing the shortest non-invasive treatment available. The device applies radiofrequency energy and heat to gently heat up the tissues and stimulate blood flow and collagen production, targeting vaginal laxity and labial volume loss. It is also very effective in treating stress incontinence, with women reporting improvement from the very first treatment.
River Aesthetics recommends using BTL Exilis Ultra Femme 360™ The treatment is quick, easy and has virtually no downtime. It consists of three sessions one week apart and the optimal results can be seen around 3 months after treatment.
The disposable tip of the BTL Ultra Femme 360™ is moved back and forth from the opening of the vaginal canal down towards the cervix. The radiofrequency waves combine with thermal energy to raise the temperature of the vaginal tissues to more than 40°C. Old collagen fibres are broken down and the cells are stimulated to produce fresh collagen.
Elasticity is improved and blood flow enhanced, strengthening the vaginal muscles that have been weakened as a result of age, childbirth or other factors. The treatment can be administered internally and externally, restoring lubrication and improving labia appearance. Patients will notice an immediate difference, with optimum results being seen 3 months post-treatment.
Who is Suitable for the Procedure?
Women who have symptoms of vaginal laxity are suitable candidates for BTL Ultra Femme 360™ treatment. Stress incontinence is the unintentional loss of urine, which can happen when physical movement puts pressure on the bladder. Activities such as coughing, running, laughing or sneezing can cause leakage if the vaginal tissue is already lax.
By strengthening the vaginal muscle, BTL Ultra Femme 360™ treatment can help eradicate symptoms of stress incontinence. Tightening vaginal tissue and restoring lubrication can also improve the sensation during sexual intimacy.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
The procedure is quick and easy, taking less than 30 minutes per treatment. It consists of three sessions one week apart.
Does it Hurt?
Patients will not experience any pain during the treatment. Many have described the sensation of the procedure as similar to that of a hot stone massage.
When Will I See Results?
Patients will notice an immediate change, with optimal results being seen 3 months after the procedure.
What Causes Vaginal Laxity?
As we age, our natural collagen production depletes, which can weaken vaginal muscles. Multiple childbirths can also cause looseness, while menopause may also be a contributing factor.
Is the Procedure Safe?
The BTL Ultra Femme 360™ meets all industry safety standards and operates at a lower temperature than other similar devices. This means that the risk of infection is significantly reduced.
Is there Any Downtime?
No downtime is required and patients will be able to resume day-to-day activities.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
The effects are long-lasting and top-up treatments may be required 6 months after the initial procedure, depending on the needs of each patient.
