There’s no getting around it – our bodies change as we get older. Whether it’s fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, loose skin on the neck or the first signs of gray hair, a quick glance in the mirror says it all. Or does it?
Ladies, we hate to break it to you, but the signs of aging don’t stop at your shoulders. In fact, they actually extend below the belt. Yes, we’re talking about “down there.” As the years go by, the vagina loses elasticity and vitality just like the skin on the rest of your body. Luckily, it doesn’t have to stay this way.
Similar to the way cosmetic procedures are used to lift, smooth and tighten the facial skin, a vaginal rejuvenation treatment can improve the appearance and function of the vagina and surrounding tissues. Traditionally, these procedures were performed by gynecologists and plastic surgeons. Now, however, there’s a nonsurgical alternative to vaginal rejuvenation for women who want to reverse the effects of aging without going under the knife.
What is ThermiVa?
ThermiVa is a nonsurgical treatment used to tighten the skin of the labia and vagina. The minimally invasive procedure works by using radiofrequency energy to heat the tissue in your nether regions. This causes the body to try to repair the area, which stimulates collagen production. In just three 30-minute sessions, patients can expect an improvement in sensation and tightness of the vaginal canal and external skin.
Who is a good candidate for ThermiVa?
If you’re unhappy with the way your vagina looks and feels due to the effects of aging, childbirth, or surgery, ThermiVa may be the perfect solution. It addresses a number of lady problems “down there” such as vaginal looseness, lack of sensation, vaginal flatulence or dryness, sagging of the labia, and painful sex.
Those with mild to moderate leaky bladder symptoms, also commonly associated with aging and childbirth, may find a solution in ThermiVa, too. While ThermiVa is not FDA-approved for urinary incontinence, many patients report that they have more bladder control and less of an urgency to find the nearest restroom following treatment.
Is ThermiVa painful?
Not at all! During a ThermiVa treatment, radiofrequency energy is delivered through a soft, S-shaped plastic probe that is carefully moved inside the vagina and over the labia. Many patients even describe the procedure as pleasant, like a warm massage.
What are the benefits of ThermiVa?
Though arguably the biggest selling point, ThermiVa offers a lot more than a tighter, more youthful vagina. Patients who choose nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation with ThermiVa enjoy the following benefits:
- Quick and painless 30-minute procedures
- No recovery or downtime
- Increased lubrication
- No anesthesia required
- Enhanced strength and elasticity of vaginal tissues
- More control over urinary incontinence
- Increased vaginal sensation during sex
While some women report immediate improvement after a single treatment, the benefits of ThermiVa are typically noticeable about two weeks later. You’ll also need three treatments over the course of three months to get results you can see and feel, which can last up to one year.
