When did Tanya have the vagina tightening treatment?

For the finale of the last Real Housewives series, Tanya took her fellow cast member Dawn Ward with her to Vivo Clinic to test out the procedure, known as ‘FemiWand’.

While Dawn resisted the urge to test out the non-invasive treatment, she is looking to purchase the machine for her own Chester lipo and beauty clinic.

Real Housewives of Cheshire producers hit on the idea to offer one of the beauties a revamping of their nether regions to boost viewing figures.

The ‘vagina facelift’ procedure, which starts at £495, is a non-surgical tightening treatment that improves the health and vitality of vaginal tissue.

It uses high-intensity focused ultrasound that rebuilds the skins elastin while tightening at the same time.
