Feminine Rejuvenation: What To Know

Ladies, let’s talk.

How is your sensitivity down there?

Are you a mom who has experienced changes since pregnancy and childbirth?

Or have you not had children, but experienced vaginal dryness, stress urinary incontinence, or painful sexual intercourse?

If you’ve answered yes to any of those questions, we need to talk about vaginal rejuvenation procedures.

Why Feminine Rejuvenation?

Our body is all about balance. Balance in hormones contributes to balance in our overall health. Over time, women experience changes in vaginal tissues due to changes in hormones, menopause, or childbirth. Low estrogen levels, for example, have been recognized to decrease vaginal lubrication, increase the risk of urinary tract infections due to a thinning of the urethra, cause irregular or absent menses, and affect mood. Women also experience an imbalance in estrogen levels due to things like rigorous exercise, extreme stress, or depression.

The changes and imbalance of female hormones contribute to changes in the appearance, feel, and function of vaginal tissues externally and internally.

The Female Rejuvenation Procedure

J. Sweat Plastic Surgery offers a nonsurgical feminine rejuvenation system, called ThermiVA. This is a non-invasive laser vaginal rejuvenation method that uses radiofrequency energy.

What is radiofrequency and is it safe?

Radiofrequency (RF) is a type of energy, that is measured in wavelengths. All types of energy from soundwaves of a speaker to sunlight, to wi-fi are classified by frequency on the “electromagnetic spectrum.” The RF energy used in this procedure is on the low end of the range.

With this nonsurgical treatment, RF energy is used to heat the external vaginal tissue and internal tissue in the vaginal canal with a hand-held wand. As the tissues heats, the production of collagen and elastin is stimulated. Collagen is a natural structure found in our skin that helps skin look young. Elastin works with collagen to keep the skin firm and tight. By stimulating elastin and collagen production, cell turnover happens, helping loose skin become firmer, addressing vaginal laxity, and making the area look more youthful.

This treatment is painless and only takes approximately 30-45 minutes, which is much shorter than surgical treatments.

Patients report improved exterior appearance of vaginal structures, also improved overall vaginal health.

Downtime After Vaginal Rejuvenation

With nonsurgical treatments like ThermiVa, there is no downtime associated. Some patients notice an immediate change after vaginal rejuvenation treatments but not always. The customized treatment plan will consist of a series of treatments, spaced six to eight weeks apart. It takes time to remodel tissue and collagen and elastin, so it may take multiple sessions to achieve final results. The response and longevity of results vary based on each patient’s lifestyle and hormones.
