Many women feel a little shy to discuss their feminine health issues openly, or even to seek medical help when they need to. However, it is important to address these concerns for a better quality of life.
Common feminine health issues that occur after childbirth
Sexual function can be affected by loosening of the vaginal wall and pelvic floor muscles as a result of childbirth and aging.
As the pelvic floor muscle surrounds both the vagina and the urinary tract, a weak pelvic floor would reduce support for these structures. Therefore, weakening of the pelvic floor muscles may also lead to Urinary Stress Incontinence. Urinary Stress incontinence may lead to leakage of urine during exertion and coughing.
Feminine health can be improved by Exilis Ultra Femme 360 which uses radio frequency (RF) and ultrasound to induce tightening of the vaginal wall and the surrounding skin. This is frequently followed by Tesla Muscle Former, which uses electromagnetic stimulation (EMS) to tighten the pelvic floor muscles surrounding the vaginal wall and urinary tract, and tone muscles to improve sexual function and urinary continence.
How Exilis Ultra Femme 360 and Tesla Muscle Former work
Treatment using Exilis Ultra Femme 360 is divided into two phases, the first phase utilises a single-use, disposable vaginal probe which transmits RF safely to the vaginal wall. The process is generally comfortable. The patient feels gentle heating as the probe is moved very slowly within the vagina. Thereafter, a different disposable probe is used on the skin surrounding the vaginal wall for tightening. This process involves continuous movement under real-time temperature monitoring to ensure effectiveness and safety.
For treatment with the Tesla Muscle Former, the patient sits on a special chair fitted with a strong magnet on the seat. The patient can be fully dressed during the 45-minute treatment. During the treatment, strong electromagnetic waves would stimulate the pelvic floor muscles to contract. This is done safely according to protocol. The contractions are fairly strong and can go up to 160 contractions a second to effectively strengthen the pelvic floor muscles.
Training your pelvic floor muscles
Patients can try to do pelvic floor muscle exercises by themselves at home. The feeling should be as if we are trying to grip an object in the pelvis. It is a good exercise to make the Tesla Muscle Former treatment even more effective!
Daily care for your V-zone
Proper cleansing of the delicate zone and urination after sexual intercourse is recommended. Infection can affect vaginal health. Patients with frequent infections will benefit from vaginal douche. These preparations are widely available for purchase in Singapore pharmacies without a need for a doctor’s prescription.
Rising demand for feminine health issues treatment in Singapore
There is certainly more demand for treatment of women’s health issues in Singapore now. While it has always been an issue, women are now more open to talk about these issues and seek treatment. As there are so many choices out there, my advice would be to seek treatment in a medical clinic under the supervision of a doctor.
