Aging isn’t kind to our bodies, but who said it should also take a toll on our sex lives? Fact is, aging, having children, and menopause all combine to lower our interest in sex decrease sexual satisfaction. They also create other problems such as urinary incontinence.
At Imago Medical Spa, we offer FemiWave to counteract some of these changes. FemiWave is a novel, non-invasive treatment that uses soundwaves to improve blood vessel health, natural lubrication, and sensitivity in the vaginal area.request an appointment
How FemiWave Works
FemiWave™ is a revolutionary procedure that uses low-intensity sound waves (also referred to as acoustic wave therapy) to restore sensation and natural lubrication. This energy is delivered directly to the labia tissues. The procedure increases cell signaling in blood vessels, which increases blood flow to nerves and the vaginal lining. The ultrasound energy also triggers new collagen generation, which improves vaginal tissue health and firmness.
The FemiWave procedure activates the growth of healthier vaginal tissue. This process, called neurogenesis, enhances sensitivity in the vagina and can make orgasms easier to achieve. FemiWave energy also returns more natural lubrication to these tissues, lubrication that decreases after menopause.
FemiWave restores the ability to lubricate and can reduce pain experienced during intercourse.
How Can FemiWave Help?
Because the ultrasound energy (which has no adverse effects on the human body) works to strengthen blood vessels, these treatments have numerous benefits for women:
- Intensified orgasms
- Increased vaginal tightness
- Increased lubrication
- Boost in sensitivity and arousal
- Reduced urinary incontinence
By increasing blood flow to the vagina, women will experience increased sensitivity, lubrication, strengthening, and tightening.
What Happens During The FemiWave Procedure?
During a FemiWave treatment at Imago Medical Spa, the handpiece uses shockwave therapy to deliver the soundwaves to the inner and outer labia. Prior to your session, topical anesthetic is applied, ensuring your comfort during these treatments. These are completely non-invasive treatments that take just about 20 minutes.
How Many FemiWave Treatments Will I Need?
At Imago Medical Spa, we’ve found that patients respond well with from 6 to 12 FemiWave sessions. Each session takes around 20 minutes, but you also need to allow time for the topical numbing anesthetic to take effect.
Is There A Recovery Period After FemiWave Treatments?
These are completely non-invasive treatments. There aren’t any incisions. This isn’t potentially harmful laser energy. There isn’t any downtime. As soon as you leave our offices on Fireclay Avenue you can get right back to work or your other normal activities. You don’t have to wait to have sex, either.
How Long Will My Results From FemiWave Last?
The strengthening of your blood vessels because of the soundwave energy pulses is permanent. But the aging process is ongoing at the same time, so as time passes, you’ll lose some of the gains made with FemiWave. That’s why we encourage our Imago patients to find the schedule that works for them, and plan for regular, far less frequent maintenance FemiWave treatments to maintain their results.
Would FemiWave Be Helpful For Me?
Great candidates for FemiWave at Imago have some or all of these complaints about aging and its effect on their sexual health:
- Less lubrication
- Increasing difficulty reaching orgasm
- Decreased interest in sex
- Looseness in the vaginal tissues
- Occasional urinary incontinence, such as when coughing
Are There Any Risks Or Side Effects With FemiWave?
Ultrasound energy has been used for decades in various diagnostic tests, including the ultrasounds everyone is familiar with during pregnancy. Ultrasound energy is also used to map leg veins and check for signs of decreased circulation. It can be used for guidance of corticosteroid injections.
The human body has no adverse reaction to soundwave energy. There aren’t any risks of burns, such as with laser energy. There aren’t any incisions or anything invasive. These are simple, short treatments that have no downside for our patients at Imago.
