Symptoms associated with vaginal dysfunction can affect your sexuality as well as your physical and emotional wellbeing. While changes to vaginal appearance and structure are relatively common after childbirth or menopause, the effect can result in less sexual satisfaction, urinary incontinence or leaking, and low self-image.
State-of-the-art feminine rejuvenation treatments can restore vaginal tone and a more desired appearance for women dealing with vaginal atrophy, dryness, or laxity. Women who are treated with feminine rejuvenation therapies report positive results that include a reduction of vaginal dryness, improved sensation during intercourse, and better bladder control.
Working with an experienced provider can help you achieve the results you desire from feminine rejuvenation. Feminine rejuvenation specialist Winnie King, MD, provides several feminine rejuvenation treatments in her private practice in Shenandoah and Houston, Texas. After a thorough examination, Dr. King determines which procedure can help you achieve the results you desire.

Who can benefit from feminine rejuvenation
Feminine rejuvenation is typically used to correct vaginal dryness, vaginal laxity or loss of tightness, urinary stress incontinence, and reduced sensation during intercourse.
Non-surgical procedures involve the use of heat to stimulate the surrounding tissue to improve tightness and reduce incontinence. You may require a surgical procedure if your vagina requires the removal of excess skin, reducing the labia, or reconstructing the vaginal wall.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons says that you’re more likely to have better results with feminine rejuvenation if you live a healthy and active lifestyle. Having realistic expectations and understanding that your final results may take three months or longer to develop can also improve your outcomes.
Treating urinary stress incontinence
Urinary stress incontinence is a condition that occurs when the pelvic floor muscles are weakened by childbirth or menopause. The pelvic floor muscles support your bladder and urethra, which control the release of urine. When the pelvic floor muscles are weakened, sudden pressure on the bladder and urethra from activities like coughing or laughing can trigger a spontaneous release of urine.
The BTL EmsellaTM chair is a noninvasive feminine rejuvenation treatment for urinary incontinence. This novel treatment promotes bladder control by delivering thousands of contractions per second to your pelvic floor. The stimulation works to restore the weakened muscles and improve bladder control.
The BTL Emsella treatment is a 30-minute procedure that you receive while you are fully clothed and comfortably seated in the Emsella chair. It’s common to experience a slight tingling sensation during the muscle contractions.
Improvement of urinary stress incontinence can require about six treatments given twice weekly. The treatment requires no downtime or recovery after it’s administered.
Ultra Femme 360™
Ultra Femme 360 treats urinary stress incontinence by applying radiofrequency (RF) energy to vaginal tissue. This is accomplished by inserting a 360° tip inside the vaginal canal.
During your eight-minute treatment, the tip is moved in slow, repetitive back-and-forth motions to treat 360° of the vaginal canal. The treated vaginal tissue receives the sensation of comfortable, controlled heat.
The treatment triggers a natural reaction that increases blood flow and stimulates collagen production in the affected area. These reactions help tighten loose vaginal tissue and firm the vaginal canal, which provides more support for weakened pelvic muscles. The results can also improve sexual sensation and satisfaction.
You can resume normal activities immediately after treatment with Ultra Femme 360 since no downtime or recovery is required.
O-Shot for improved sexual sensation
The O-Shot uses platelets from your own blood to rejuvenate vaginal tissue. The effect promotes increased vaginal lubrication and improved sexual desire and experience.
After drawing a sample of your blood, a centrifuge is used to isolate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The PRP is injected directly into your vaginal tissue with a tiny needle.
The platelets stimulate tissue growth by releasing growth factors into the tissue where they’re administered. These growth factors promote natural healing by encouraging collagen production and attracting more stem cells and blood flow to the treated area.
The 30-minute procedure is painless and requires no downtime, so you can resume normal activities immediately after your visit.
