Understanding the Technology of Vaginal Rejuvenation Devices

Vaginal rejuvenation devices represent an innovative solution to women’s intimate wellness concerns, driven by technologies like Bipolar Radiofrequency (RF), which offer a minimally-invasive means to address issues such as laxity, atrophy, sexual & orgasmic dysfunction, dryness, and urinary leakage. As women increasingly prioritize holistic well-being, these devices stand as a promising avenue for enhancing treatment comfort and confidence in intimate health.

Introduction:

Per The National Library of Medicine, more than 20 million women are affected by uterine prolapse, birthing injuries, and incontinence. The causes of conditions such as vaginal relaxation syndrome or vulvovaginal laxity include vaginal delivery, natural aging, and atrophy. Aside from functional consequences, these conditions also have an effect on women’s sexuality and sense of well-being.

Today, through public awareness programs, physician education, and media sources, the barriers to communication on issues with regard to female sexual dysfunction and incontinence have been broken. Information on these conditions and treatment options is more readily available, and, as a result, the demand for such interventions is growing.

Understanding the Technology:

Energy-based devices such as Radiofrequency, stimulate type 1 collagen production in the extracellular matrix via the stimulation of fibroblasts. This process results in the contracture of elastin fibers, neovascularization, and improved vaginal lubrication.  Recent RF studies showed an increase in the small nerve fiber density in the papillary dermis. Post-treatment biopsy tests have demonstrated neocollagenesis and neoelastogenesis in the submucosa after RF. The creation of new elastin, which is relatively unique to RF, may contribute to treating vaginal laxity. Several types of RF devices exist, and some have been developed with specific handpieces for the vaginal canal. RF has also been used to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Nonablative RF was used to achieve tightening of the vaginal canal also.

Device Functionality:

Pretty Tight Kitty’s RF Therapeutic Wand is designed so that the wand can be placed into the vaginal canal using vaginal lubricant and propped into place with a pillow or towel for internal use for 7-10 minutes. The shaft has 16 energy exit ports where the RF energy is emitted deep into the vaginal tissue. It has a unique design where two of those ports are at the tip so that the energy is pointed up towards the round ligament, bladder wall, and upper vaginal vault. No other device has this feature. The device shaft rotates at 3 speeds of your choice, all 3 being in the therapeutic range of 41.5-43C, and keeps the energy dispersed evenly thus keeping the vaginal vault tissue from making direct contact with any port and overheating or burning the tissue. The design of the grooves in the shaft also enables the heat to get deeper into the tissue. There is a temp probe measuring the heat at all times and will automatically adjust to stay in the therapeutic range, and will automatically shut off if it goes beyond 45C. For external use, you will use vaginal lubricant and need to manually move the device up and down from the outer introitus and up to the clitoral hood where the urethra is, going back and forth between top and bottom on both sides, including the labia majora and minora for 3-5 minutes each side. You may use the vibration of 3 levels of your choice as a distraction to the heat or as wanted or desired for pleasure. We at PTK want you to normalize treatment with the device and have fun while doing a session. It is also encouraged if desire to invite your partner to participate in foreplay and enhance your sexual intimacy. Have a blast in the bedroom while tightening and rejuvenating too!

Benefits and Applications:

1.       Improves the appearance of the vaginal anatomy and tissue.

2.      Improves the muscle tone of the vaginal walls.

3.      Improves orgasmic dysfunction.

4.      Improves sexual comfort and pleasure.

5.      Reduces urinary leakage.

6.      Reduces vaginal dryness and atrophy

7.      Reduces vaginal laxity.

8.      Easy to use in the privacy of your own home

9.      Cost-effective treatment

10.    The same energy used in the PTK devices as used in professional medical devices.

Parameters and Directions

Our treatment parameters are to use the device twice a week for 4 weeks, then once a week for a month.  From there on you should use the device as needed or desired or at least once every 6 months, but there is no reason you can not use it as desired for pleasure also.  You may even have sexual intercourse if you desire with yourself or a partner if there is no spotting or cramping, otherwise, abstain from sex for 24 hours.

1. Prep, Positioning and Gel Application

Start by thoroughly cleansing your vaginal area with a mild, non-perfumed soap and warm water. pat the area dry with a clean, soft towel.  Make sure to shave the external area first before use.  Ensure that you are in a quiet, private space where you can concentrate and follow the instructions without interruptions.  Get comfortable and in a relaxed position, lying with your legs slightly apart. Our device requires the application of a water-based gel or lubricant to ensure smooth contact with your skin. Apply gel or lubricant to the shaft of the device. Never allow the device to sit idle internally or externally for any length of time.

2. Using Your Vaginal Rejuvenation Device Step by Step

A:  Internal Treatment

Insert the device shaft into the vaginal vault with lubricant or gel.  Prop it in place with a towel or small pillow against the base of the device.

B: Turn on the device

Turn on the device at the base, turn on/off switch.  Then use the remote control to operate the many different functions. Choose from the heat settings, low, medium, or high.  Start in the low setting and advance as tolerated.  All settings are in a therapeutic range.

C:  Once you have chosen the appropriate settings for internal use and started the rotation the treatment time will be 7-10 minutes.  The device will rotate/spin in the internal setting only, which is a safety feature to keep the wand in motion dispersing the heat evenly in the vaginal tract tissue and keeps it from causing overheating.  If you choose to use vibration internally, choose low, medium, or high, as it may distract from the heat sensation or used for pleasure.  The treatment will increase blood flow, tighten, and rejuvenate the internal tissue and increase vaginal fluids for dryness issues.

D:  Once the internal treatment is done, turn off the rotation and remove the device holding the device by the base. Keep the heat on and adjust to low or medium for the external treatment.

External Treatment

A: Be sure to hold the device at the base when using externally, being careful not to hold onto the shaft with the heat on.  Reapply lubricant/gel to the shaft of the device again, then turn on vibration to low, medium, or high if desired. Take the shaft and place it on the skin of the outer and inner labia with the energy exit ports on the side or tip of the device and move it up and down from the external introitus, up to the clitoral hood where the urethra is also (see diagram), make sure the heat gets to this area also, and then go back down for 3-5 minutes, then repeat on the other side.  This brings more blood flow to the external areas for rejuvenating the appearance, treating atrophy and laxity, and by treating the Urethra it tightens and shrinks the tissue to decrease urine leakage.  The increased blood flow to the clitoral hood increases sensations for quicker and more orgasms.

B:  Enjoy the vibration to complete your experience without the heat on if desired. We encourage you to make the treatment as fun and enjoyable as you can, as pleasure is normal when treating internal and external areas of the vagina, so have a blast!

C: Duration time externally is 3-5 minutes each side.  Turn off the device and remove by holding the base.

Post-Treatment Care

After the session, clean the device with warm sudsy washcloth, followed with a disinfectant wipe.  Then recharge the device so it is charged for the next use.  Store it in a safe place in the original box.
