Many women experience vaginal dryness, vaginal laxity, and incontinence, which can have a negative influence on their self-confidence. ThermiVa® is an effective way to address these issues because the treatment uses radio-frequency waves to rejuvenate and tighten the tissues of the vagina. This treatment can tighten the vaginal muscles, increase vaginal lubrication, reduce incontinence, and boost sexual satisfaction.
What Is the Treatment Like?
Our doctor may ask you to remove the hair around the vaginal area before each treatment for optimal results. Before each session, you may have a gel applied to the labia to ensure that your skin is protected throughout the session. Next, our doctor will use a handheld device to stimulate collagen production and blood flow in vaginal muscles.
The increased production of collagen will strengthen the pelvic floor, which will effectively help with bladder control. In addition, the increased blood flow will cause the labia to increase in volume for a more youthful appearance in the vaginal area. Immediately after each treatment, you will notice results. However, you should continue to experience stimulation and tightening for a few weeks following each treatment.
Many women choose this treatment because there isn’t any downtime, and they can resume physical activities, such as sexual intercourse, the same day as each treatment. Most women report a mild warming sensation during the treatment.
Who Are the Best Candidates for ThermiVa®?
While most women who undergo ThermiVa® have went through menopause, any woman over the age of 18 can reap the benefits of ThermiVa®. The best candidates are women who have vaginal laxity and are unhappy with the appearance of their vagina. In fact, many younger women who have given birth choose to have ThermiVa® treatments to restore tightness to the vagina. It is also an ideal treatment for women who experience vaginal dryness, sexual dysfunction, and urinary leakage.
How Long Does ThermiVa® Last?
After the initial treatments, most women will notice results for nine months to one year. To maintain the full effects of ThermiVa®, most women will need one follow up treatment every year.
