Each treatment session is 8 minutes long and involves the insertion of a vaginal probe into the vaginal canal, as well as passing the probe along the outer lips of the vagina. The probe has different form-fitting applicator tips to account for each unique vaginal canal size and shape so the treatment is not painful at all, although the probe might feel surprisingly warm. Dr Novikova will adjust the temperature to suit your heat tolerance. The heat is distributed evenly across the probe which minimises any discomfort.
The treatments are carried out once a week for a recommended 3 to 6 sessions and there is no downtime. Patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately after the procedure as any redness or mild swelling will disappear after a few hours.
No preparation is required and the treatment is great for menopausal women, women that have relatively recently given birth and women that live with stress urinary incontinence. The results include improved skin texture, tightness and sensation and although improvements can be noticeable from the first treatment session, full results can be felt and seen approximately 3 months after your final treatment.
