What is HIFU Vaginal Tightening?
HIFU Vaginal Tightening or ‘HIFU Vaginal Rejuvenation’ (HVR) is performed to tighten and rejuvenate the vaginal canal with a non-surgical procedure. This application is provided by thermal and non-ablative effects of special ultrasound waves.It does not involve any incision, anesthesia or pain during the procedure. It’s been used not only for the rejuvenation of vagina, but also for stress urinary incontinence treatment, sexual enhancement, menopausal vulvovaginal atrophy symptoms, and other therapy.
How does HIFU Vaginal Tightening work?
The Vaginal Tightening HIFU System uses a non-invasive ultrasonic focusing technique to target the mucosal lamia and muscle layer. Using ultrasonic waves as the energy source and taking advantage of its penetration and focality, a higher intensity of ultrasonic region, called focus region, is formed. In fraction of a second, the temperature of the region can reach slightly over 65 ℃ , so the collagen is reorganized and the normal tissue outside the focal region is undamaged. Therefore, the desired depth layer can obtain the ideal effect of collagen concentration, reorganization and regeneration. Ultimately, the desired effect of vagina tightening is achieved.

The mechanism of action is again with the simulation of collagen. In the treatment of pain during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia), sexual intercourse pain may be related to ‘Vulvar Vestibulitis’ (Vulvar Vestibulitis Syndrome). In this case, sexual intercourse pain can be treated with ultrasound applications.
Lichen Sclerosus treatment
Thinning of the skin tissue, can result in complaints such as burning, itching, stinging may be associated with an autoimmune skin disease which is called as ‘lichen sclerosus’. In this case, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injection treatments are very beneficial together with ultrasound applications. Genital radiofrequency technologies are also used with the same indication.
HOW IS HIFU VAGINAL TIGHTENING PERFORMED?
Ultrasound energy probe is typically used in this procedure. The probe rotates 360 degree automatically to ensure full vaginal therapy.
A HIFU Vaginal Tightening session lasts for about 20 minutes; it is a painless and comfortable procedure. Thanks to the new HIFU technology robotic arm we use in our clinic, setup period is reduced to 3 minutes and you can enjoy the sensual feeling and warmth of the energy working inside. No anesthesia is required. Patients can return to their normal lifestyle immediately after the procedure. But, no strenuous sport or sexual activities for only 24 hours.
