During the menopause, the production of oestrogen in the body drops significantly, creating a variety of changes in the body, including what is known as genitourinary symptoms of menopause or GSM, which affects over half of menopausal and post-menopausal women. GSM can bring about vaginal dryness, itching, a lowered libido, loss of sensitivity in the vagina and surrounding tissues, dyspareunia (pain during sex), an increase in the frequency and urgency of urination and a higher susceptibility to urinary tract infections, among other symptoms. Women with GSM can experience significant sexual dysfunction that impacts on their close relationships, but many women are often too embarrassed to seek treatment.
The loss of sensitivity as well as vaginal laxity brought on by GSM can affect sexual satisfaction for both you and your partner. Using Ultra Femme 360, the tissues in the vagina are activated and tightened, leading to a more pleasurable sexual experience for both partners.
Treatment with the Ultra Femme 360 device works by inserting a disposable tip into the vaginal canal, where the tip is moved along the whole length of the vaginal canal towards the cervix and back towards the opening. A small band at the end of the device emits radio frequency waves throughout the length of the vaginal canal. These waves penetrate deeply into the tissues in the vagina and gently elevate the temperature of the cells to over 40°C to help promote and boost the natural process of new collagen growth. It also helps to significantly increase blood flow and circulation in the area.
