Pelvic Floor Treatment



Cheshire Lasers introduces Powerform V-Plus Pelvic Floor Treatment

Cheshire Lasers will be introducing Powerform V-Plus for treating pelvic floor muscles from mid-September 2020


What is Powerform V-Plus?

Powerform V-Plus is a new powerful revolutionary pelvic floor and core muscle toning treatment. It uses High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) technology which creates the equivalent of 20,000 muscle contractions in a  30-minute treatment.


How does Powerform V-Plus Work?

The Powerform V-Plus creates electromagnetic energy fields which triggers the biological effect of exercise in a non-invasive, painless manner. The energy stimulates motor neurone pulses in 100% of the muscle fibre, significantly more than what would be possible in conventional pelvic floor and core muscle exercises.

The treatment engages the Mitochondria which burn off energy, which encourage the muscle to adapt to this increase in energy. The intense muscle contractions stimulate the muscles to create new protein strands and muscle fibres, resulting in increased muscle tone, strength, density and volume.

The treatment not only helps increase fat and calorie burning in the area treated, but it also improves the body’s metabolic rate. Another benefit to the treatment is a reduction in the amount of inflammation in that area of the body.

The overall result increase in:

  • muscle tone
  • strength
  • volume
  • density

Contra-indications:

At Cheshire Lasers we do not recommend a Powerform V-Plus treatment if you have the following:

  • Pregnancy or breastfeeding

How many treatments will I need?

At Cheshire Lasers, we recommend a course of around eight Powerform V-Plus treatments to achieve results.

We recommend a treatment twice a week. It can be three times a week if preferred, however, you must leave 48 hours between each treatment to allow the muscle to recover.


Would a course of Powerform V-Plus treatments suit me?

At Cheshire Lasers, we recommend Powerform V-Plus to strengthen and tighten the pelvic floor muscles.

The treatment can benefit a range of people and problems:

  • Post-pregnancy to improve weakness in the pelvic floor and or abdominal wall muscles
  • Weakness due to ageing – to help prolapse symptoms and or stress incontinence.
  • Muscle weakness due to medical conditions where exercise is not possible.
  • To help pelvic floor weakness problems when  pelvic floor physiotherapy and exercises have failed to help the problem

Why consider a Powerform V-Plus Pelvic Floor Treatment?

The current guidelines recommend pelvic floor muscle training as the first-line conservative treatment for stress incontinence and mild prolapses. Exercises need to be performed regularly every day and continued long term to make a difference. Some people struggle to do the exercises due to lack of time/commitment whereas others have a poor ineffective technique so the exercises do not improve the problem.

To help with pelvic floor exercises your GP can refer you to a physiotherapist who specialises in pelvic floor problems. They can advise you about technique and help you improve the efficiency of the exercises so they actually cause changes and improvement. Physiotherapists can also help you by using a biofeedback device to measure the strength of the pelvic floor muscle to help educate you when you are making strong contractions and also advise if the exercises are making a difference. They can also advise about vaginal cones. Some physiotherapists also use electrical stimulation to help the muscle contract and increase muscle tone.  Despite these interventions, some people still struggle to improve their pelvic floor strength and tone.

Powerform V-Plus targets the entire pelvic floor, unlike the electrical stimulation devices and unlike conscious pelvic floor exercises which only target a small area of the pelvic floor.  A treatment session of 30mins is equivalent to 20,000 contractions so each treatment leads to quicker and more dramatic muscle changes compared to any other treatment.


What types of incontinence improve with Pelvic Floor Treatment?

Stress incontinence is the most likely to respond to pelvic floor treatment. Mixed incontinence can also improve to some extent.

Whats is stress incontinence?

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a condition in which there is an involuntary loss of urine on effort, physical exertion, sneezing or coughing. This is most commonly caused by a weak pelvic floor hence why pelvic floor exercises are recommended.
