VTone is a gentle FDA cleared technology designed to provide intravaginal electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) and neuromuscular re-education to rehabilitate weak pelvic floor muscles for the treatment of stress, urge, and mixed urinary incontinence in women.
Perks of VTone technology:
VTone treatments are gentle and require no anesthetic. They are applied with an applicator that is carefully inserted into the vagina. The radiofrequency of FormaV will feel warm, which many women find soothing and comfortable. VTone contracts the muscles at a high intensity to strengthen the pelvic floor, which you will experience as a tingling, contracting sensation that is easily tolerable, not painful.
- Address stress, urge, and mixed urinary incontinence, both quickly and painlessly
- Perform customized procedures to rehabilitate weak pelvic floor muscles
- Restore patient self-confidence and quality of life without surgery or prolonged downtime

Who is an ideal candidte?
VTone treatments are ideal for women experiencing a variety of feminine wellness concerns. These unpleasant issues can afflict women at any age, although childbirth and menopause can often be either the cause or a significant contributing factor.
What happens during the procedure?
We provide your procedure in a private, relaxing room. The length of your vaginal canal will be gently and carefully measured to know exactly how far the wand should be inserted to provide maximum healing, without going any further than necessary. The treatment wand will lubricated with a small amount of gel to help ease the comfort of entry, then gently inserted into the vagina.
Once the wand is inserted, it will apply either RF energy or muscle stimulation (depending on which treatment you are having), targeting the deeper layers of tissue in the vaginal walls.
Treatments generally take 20-30 minutes from start to finish.
Most patients need two treatments a week for four weeks to achieve ideal results.
The number of treatment sessions you need will depend on your unique feminine wellness concerns. We will help determine this during your consultation and design a custom treatment plan for you.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime to worry about after your treatments. You may experience some swelling, redness or sensitivity, but these temporary side effects only last for a few days and should not interfere with you returning to your usual activities or work.
Within two weeks, you will notice significant vaginal tightening and improvements in urinary incontinence. Results continue to build as the stimulated collagen and elastin restructures and strengthens the vaginal tissue and the muscles build, which continue more dramatically as further treatments are performed.
