Vaginal tightening treatment benefits Portland, OR women at many life stages

Vaginal Tightening Treatment in Portland OR area

It is not possible to stop time from changing the human body. However, an innovative advancement in radiofrequency technology is helping women feel like themselves again following childbirth, as they age, after menopause, or post-surgery. ULTRA Femme 360 vaginal tightening treatment is available from Dr. Adam Maddox at Thrive Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Center in Portland, OR.

How the feminine body changes

The vagina is an internal cylinder extending from a woman’s uterus to the exterior of her body, creating the birth canal for a baby’s delivery. The vagina is comprised of muscles, fibrous connective tissues, and nerves. In a youthful, healthy vagina, the introitus (vaginal opening) and perineum (area between the vagina and anus) work together with the smooth muscles and moist, mucosal lining of the vagina. This teamwork allows the vagina to change in size to accommodate sexual intercourse and childbirth. The exterior opening of the vagina is framed by two sets of skin folds called labia minora and labia majora. These vulvar tissues protect the sensitive clitoris.

Many women, even rather young ones, experience changes in their vagina or pelvic floor after being pregnant and having a baby. Hormonal fluctuations allow the vagina and pelvic floor muscles to stretch significantly (up to about three times their normal elasticity) for delivery. While these muscular tissues may “bounce back” after the first baby, there is usually residual laxity with each birthing. This can impact sexual fulfillment for both the woman and her male partner.

As women age, the body produces less collagen and elastin. These fibrous proteins keep feminine tissues thick and resilient. Depleted stores of collagen and elastin contribute to vaginal laxity, and leave tissues delicate and prone to discomfort or tearing. Blood flow, which stimulates natural lubrication, also decreases. This adds to the problem of dryness. A drop in estrogen levels after menopause has a big impact on all of these functions as well.

Pelvic floor muscles help to support and control the bladder as well as the vagina. Stretching and weakening of these muscles can lead to urinary incontinence at any age. Leakage from a sudden sneeze, cough, laugh, or physical exertion is thought of as a common side effect of motherhood and aging.

Over time, a woman’s intimate area changes in appearance, too. Since labia are folds of skin, they also need collagen and elastin to remain tight and firm. Labia tend to enlarge and droop with age. Clothing may rub uncomfortably, or excess skin could show through yoga pants or swimwear.

Effect of radiofrequency energy on female genitalia

Radio waves are a form of electromagnetic energy, or electric and magnetic waves moving through space. You might be wondering what this scientific explanation has to do with vaginal laxity, but the answer is – plenty! The BTL ULTRA Femme 360 dispenses radiofrequency energy in a specific frequency and wavelength which creates a thermal response in vaginal and vulvar tissues. The body reacts to this stimulation with natural healing processes, creating a renewed network of collagen in the deep tissue layers.

This nonsurgical treatment is appropriate for internal vaginal tightening, as well as labial reduction and remodeling. There are no needles or sutures, no need for anesthetic, and essentially no downtime after treatment. Simply relax while a special sterile applicator sends radiofrequency energy to the entire circumference of the vagina. Treatment takes only a few minutes, and most women describe the sensation as intense, pleasant warmth with no pain. The clinician uses a different handpiece to treat the inner and outer labia. Internal and external areas can be treated at one appointment.

You may feel and see improvement after a single session. While your treatment plan is personalized, most women experience optimal results with a series of three or four ULTRA Femme 360 applications, spaced about a week apart. Then, improvement can be maintained with just an annual maintenance session.

How vaginal tightening treatment benefits Portland, OR women

  • Collagen remodeling continues for about a month after radiofrequency treatment
  • The vaginal canal and opening tighten as vaginal walls get thicker
  • Enhanced blood flow stimulates vaginal lubrication and rejuvenates the clitoris
  • Treatment plumps the labia major
  • The labia minora lift and tighten
  • The perineum tightens
  • Constriction of pelvic floor muscles can be beneficial to women with urinary stress incontinence

Say goodbye to armpit hair and underarm sweating. Mirror Smooth (miraDry??) will save your day.


You shave it. You wax it, you laser it. Heck, you might even dye it pink. Talking about armpit hair. Now some people are saying you can microwave it away once and for all. We’re revealing a new treatment right now and our procedure room. Take it away, Doctor Ashton.

Hi guys So, I’m back here with doctor sheila Nazarian, board certified plastic surgeon and our patient Aaron. You’re going to be demonstrating this new microwave procedure to hit axillary hair, but before we get to that, tell, tell me why this hair bothered you, Aaron? Because I mean, you’re blonde, you wouldn’t mind.

I’m a personal trainer. I spend 95% of my day in a tank top in the gym or in a bikini and shaving every day is such a pain. No one likes to do it. I tried laser hair removal. It doesn’t work. If you have blonde hair and darker skin. So, I heard about mirror smooth So, thought I’d give it a try.

And you said it’s your game, okay, So, doctor Nazarian,


Go ahead and lie back Aaron. So, as you start working tell us a little bit about this technology. Who’s a good candidate for it and how? Does it work?

Well, the beauty of this technology is that everyone is a good candidate. Any skin colour, any hair colour? I’ve actually had the procedure performed on myself, didn’t get any hyperpigmentation from it.

So, you numbed Aaron up before we started, right?

Arron’s been numbed already. We’ve placed a temporary tattoo which basically gives us little tick marks. It’s really paint by numbers at that point and we use the microwave technology of mirror smooth to remove not only 70% of her hair with one treatment, but also the sweat and odour glands are also eliminated. So, it’s basically a little suction and some you know heat is applied, but because she’s numb there’s no pain.

You feel anything?
Fine, just a little pull,


And So, how many treatments typically does it take to really get a good effect?

So, 80% of people really only need one treatment. You’re going to get an 82% reduction in the sweat and odour glands and a 70% reduction in the hair growth. Which, if you’ve ever had laser hair, you know you need multiple treatments in order to get anywhere close to 70%.

So, what’s the cost range for something like this?

This that’s a great question. So, the first treatment is around 2000 dollars, but it’s, but if you think about how many laser hair removal treatments to do. I mean, it really is a great benefit and also laser hair doesn’t remove the sweat and odour glands.

Nice, well, 2000 dollars, meaning that you could throw away all your razors for the rest of your life.


Never have to worry about sweating in your armpits again and being musty.

No more deodorant and think of all the money you spend on deodorant over a lifetime.

That’s true.

And it takes how long to do both pitch?

We usually schedule people for an hour at a time?
An hour!

So, can you imagine an hour and you’re done.
Oh my gosh,


Sign me up, scoot over.

Second string.


The one done idea is very appealing.

Exactly, yeah.

Thanks for sharing that with us and thanks for showing us your armpits,

Thanks for having me

You’re welcome.
