Aging, weight loss, child­birth can all have an impact on the func­tioning of the vaginal area, the laxity and loose­ness in this area can affect a woman’s sexual grat­i­fic­a­tion, body image, comfort and self-confidence.

As the tone of the vaginal wall relates to the state of the collagen fibres, this loosening of tone can also be asso­ci­ated with reduc­tion in sexual grat­i­fic­a­tion, stress urinary incon­tin­ence, repeated vaginal infections.

Application of Thermal Non-Ablative Energy using either Laser energy (like CO2 Laser) or using Radiofrequency energy as with our Forma V wand, can tighten the collagen fibres and supporting tissues of the vagina.

Reforme Medical is the first clinic in Wales to acquire the FDA approved, safe and highly effective Forma V system for non-surgical vaginal tight­ening for Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), it acts by increasing the collagen tissue, improving blood flow to the area and can relieved dryness, sens­it­ivity  and relieve symp­toms like painful intercourse.

Non-surgical vaginal tight­ening can further help with reduc­tion of stress urinary incon­tin­ence, vaginal dryness and recur­rent vaginal infec­tion; in most patients it will have a positive impact on their sexual satisfaction.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need Non-Surgical Vaginal Tightening or Surgical Vaginoplasty?

This a ques­tion you and our specialist gynae­co­lo­gist will sit down and answer, as only a gynae­co­lo­gical exam­in­a­tion will reveal the nature of the issues you are experiencing.

As you can well under­stand there is a limit to how much tight­ening can be achieved non-surgically and there will be situ­ations where you will be advised that a surgical inter­ven­tion is a better option in your case.

Who will do the procedure and what happens during the is Forma V radi­ofre­quency vaginal tight­ening treatment?

At our clinic our gynae­co­lo­gist will provide the procedure. After the first consulta­tion you will be told if the degree of vaginal loose­ness needs 2 treat­ments or 3–4 treat­ments. Each treat­ment is done about 4–6 weeks apart, gener­ally with a main­ten­ance treat­ment once a year.

The procedure is very quick and relat­ively pain­less and, in most instances, there is very little or no downtime.

You should not wear a tampon or have sexual inter­course for 5–7 days after the treat­ment to allow the tissues to settle down and heal, after which you can get back to your normal routine.

What do I do before the Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation or Radiofrequency Vaginal Rejuvenation procedure?

You should have an up-to-date PAP smear result within 1 year of the treat­ment, before we start the treat­ment. We advise our patients to wait at least 3–6 months after a vaginal delivery to have any tight­ening treat­ments. They should also not have the treat­ment while breast feeding. We plan your treat­ments when you are not having your menstrual cycle.

What are the risks and complications of Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation or Radiofrequency Vaginal Rejuvenation procedure?

Other than some discom­fort during and for a short while after the procedure these non-surgical tech­niques have very few adverse effects in most patients.

When will I see the benefits of the Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation or Radiofrequency Vaginal Rejuvenation procedure?

Most patients with mild laxity will notice the bene­fits as early as days to weeks following the treat­ment. While one treat­ment will not provide the final result, once achieved (through a series of treat­ments) the results are stable and long lasting.
