An estimated one in three women will be impacted by some form of pelvic floor issue, most commonly brought on by pregnancy, obesity, and/or menopause. Weakened pelvic floor muscles and tissue can cause millions of women to suffer gynecological health challenges, spanning from stress incontinence to loss of vaginal sensation and lubrication, leading to embarrassment, pain, and sexual dissatisfaction.
Given the limited treatment options available, most women learn to suffer silently. With the introduction of vSculpt, women now have the pleasure of taking control of their most intimate health concerns.
vSculpt, the brainchild of high-tech beauty executive and first-time mum Colette Courtion, was designed in partnership with obstetricians and gynecologists and included input from over 2,300 women who shared insights into their own intimate health problems and what they wanted in a home-use solution. After more than three years of development, extensive testing, clinical studies, and recent attainment of its CE mark for medical devices, vSculpt is ready to make its European debut.
The technology of combining light energy with thermal heat and sonic vibration is complex, but the solution is simple. Women gain control and confidence as they improve the health of their pelvic floor in just 10 minutes every other day over the course of six to eight weeks, from the comfort of their own home.
“My journey to motherhood made me realize the importance of maintaining the health of my pelvic floor. As a former beauty executive, I spent a great deal of time working with anti-aging technologies for the face, which led to my ‘aha moment’ of creating a device for the pelvic floor by applying these same scientific principles. Just as women choose products to help postpone the noticeable effects of aging on their facial skin, they can now do the same for the muscles and tissue of their pelvic floor, helping them feel younger, from the inside out,” said Colette Courtion, vSculpt CEO and Founder.
vSculpt has been clinically validated to improve stress incontinence, strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor, and regenerate the vaginal tissue in as little as 45 days, leading to a better quality of life. In a 2016 independent clinical study1, study participants reported the following:
• 90% experienced a reduction in bladder leakage,
• 82% improved their pelvic floor muscle strength, and
• 81% saw an improvement in sexual function.

“I’ve had a long interest in urogynecology, predominantly urinary stress incontinence and vaginal prolapse and I see many women with these very, very distressing clinical problems. It’s been estimated that up to 25% to 30% of women at some stage will have problems with urinary leakage in their life, and it still remains one of the last taboos that women struggle to consult with their general practitioners and their specialists about. That is changing which is great news but I think it’s important to consider what the options are to allow a woman to improve her bladder function and get on with life.”
“The main option of course, is conservative treatment and pelvic floor exercises, which are the mainstream, and have important role, but many women may need to consider other options to help their urinary symptoms. Some may need surgery; some may need medication and this is where I think vSculpt is a very good option for many women who may want to use a device for the added reassurance of the triple therapy using vibration, light and heat to improve the pelvic floor.”
“I’ve been very impressed with vSculpt in terms of its clinical research attesting to its safety and it’s benefit and I think for many women vSculpt will be a very important option to consider in the range of treatments to improve their urinary condition, so that they can get on and improve their quality of life.”
