What is FemiWave?
FemiWave is a non-invasive procedure that uses low-intensity sound waves to treat female sexual dysfunction. Female sexual dysfunction can result in painful intercourse, inhibited sexual desire, an inability to become aroused and a lack of orgasm. Using this revolutionary treatment, we can increase blood flow to the nerves and vaginal lining in order to restore sensation and natural lubrication. Whether you’re experiencing sexual health symptoms as a result of perimenopause, menopause, post menopause, childbirth or medical conditions, this amazing procedure can help!
How does FemiWave work?
The procedure uses shockwave therapy, which has been used for years to increase blood flow in the body and restore healthy tissue. FemiWave activates the growth of healthier vaginal tissue through a process called neurogenesis. Neurogenesis enhances sensitivity in the vagina and can make orgasms easier to achieve. By restoring the vagina’s ability to lubricate, any pain you experience during intercourse can be reduced. By increasing blood flow to the vagina, women will experience increased sensitivity, lubrication, strengthening and tightening. The procedure is comfortable and is performed on both the outer and inner labia.
What can I expect during the procedure?
The procedure is non-invasive with no surgery, lasers or drugs required. You won’t need to go to the hospital either, as this treatment is performed at our practice in Torrance, California. On the day of your appointment, you will arrive 30 minutes early to receive a numbing cream. For follow-up treatments, this cream can be applied at home prior to your appointment. After the numbing cream takes hold, we will use the FemiWave device to transmit low-intensity sound waves to the outer and inner labia. The procedure itself takes roughly 20-30 minutes to complete.
What can I expect from the results?
Results will vary based on your age and medical condition, and may take a few months to obtain. Most women can expect enhancements to sexual performance and function after a series of treatments. With 6-12 sessions (each lasting 15-20 minutes), you may experience:
- Enhanced sensitivity in the vagina
- Increased natural lubrication production
- Tighter, stronger pelvic support to improve incontinence
Best of all, there is no downtime. You can resume normal daily activities, even intercourse the same night.
