Throughout life, women’s bodies can go through many changes. Even the vaginal area can change due to aging and childbirth. If you are self-conscious of lax vaginal skin or are uncomfortable due to dryness or urinary incontinence, ThermiVa can help. Read on to learn more about this treatment option.
What is ThermiVa?
ThermiVa is a non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to address a variety of issues. This may include vaginal dryness or laxity and urinary incontinence. ThermiVa works to tighten the vaginal tissue using radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production. It can also stimulate increased blood supply, which results in a more satisfying sexual experience.
During treatment, a special “S” shaped applicator will be used to gently emit the radiofrequency energy to the internal and external vaginal tissues. There is no anesthetic needed, since the treatment is painless. Women will experience a warming sensation from the applicator, though this should not be painful. After the 30-minute treatment, there is no downtime needed, and patients can even resume sexual intercourse right away.
What are the Benefits?
ThermiVa can help to improve the tone and rightness of the labia and external tissues, as well as address a number of problems that are associated with vaginal tissue atrophy. ThermiVa can help to:
- Reduce or treat stress urinary incontinence
- Restore vaginal lubrication
- Enhance sex for you and your partner
- Alleviate any pain felt during intercourse
- Restore comfort when wearing tight clothing
- Boost self-confidence
