What Is ThermiVa?
ThermiVa is the nonsurgical solution to vaginal rejuvenation that women have been waiting for. This procedure uses radio frequency to apply heat to the vulvovaginal area, improving labial laxity with the possibility of treating both stress incontinence and vaginal dryness.
The procedure is fairly simple: A radio frequency device is used to gently apply heat to the vagina and/or the labia minora and majora to reduce and tighten treated areas. This heat application results in collagen remodeling, as it strengthens skin and thereby improves laxity and contour in the vaginal area. ThermiVa also promotes new collagen formation and promotes nerve modulation, improving vaginal strength and increasing vulvovaginal sensitivity.
The primary benefit of this procedure is that there is no downtime whatsoever. ThermiVa patients can leave the office and continue with their day following their ThermiVa treatment. Surgical options for vaginal reconstruction and tightening can take months for full healing and may cause discomfort for an extended amount of time. Now, women can take full control of their bodies with immediate results and satisfaction.
ThermiVa is a great option for women who are not yet candidates for surgery, because their changes don’t yet warrant a surgical procedure. Women considering having children in the future may also consider ThermiVa as the treatment has no impact on a women’s ability to bear children vaginally.
ThermiVa Rejuvenates: Cosmetic Vaginal Tightening
ThermiVa treatment is a solution for vaginal tightening and labial rejuvenation. Many women who desire cosmetic improvement of their labia may be candidates for ThermiVa.
Traditionally, cosmetic vaginal tightening requires surgery, with a minimum of one month of recovery time until you are healed. Most women continue to feel discomfort in the area for up to a year following this type of surgery. ThermiVa gives women an opportunity for real, instant gratification as it tightens the labial skin and rejuvenates muscle function as well.
Heat applied during the procedure results in collagen remodeling improving vaginal appearance, improving your confidence both on a personal level and with intimacy.
ThermiVa is safe to use after pregnancy, even if you are considering another child in the future. Whether you suffer from loose labial skin due to pregnancy or a birth condition, the ThermiVa procedure will help you gain the aesthetic and functional vaginal form you desire.
Regain Your Poise: Stress Incontinence
Labial appearance is not the only vaginal symptom affecting women’s confidence, stress incontinence (involuntary urine emission) can dramatically affect self-esteem, especially with intimacy. ThermiVa can work to restore peri-urethral tightness and kegel muscle function.
Stress incontinence is characterized by the unintentional loss of urine due to muscle weakness in the bladder neck or kegel muscle complex. Often, stress incontinence is stimulated by coughing, sneezing or physical activities such as running. Pregnancy, menstruation, menopause, or pelvic surgery can all exacerbate stress incontinence.
Stress incontinence often causes women to isolate themselves, to place limits on their social activities and avoid exercise out of fear of embarrassment. ThermiVa can help you regain control over your life, your schedule and your body. Do not let stress incontinence hold you back from your desires or from seeking intimacy; return to normalcy, comfort and social confidence.
ThermiVa Restores: Atrophic Vaginitis
Vaginal dryness and inflammation (atrophic vaginitis) are caused by the thinning and shrinking of vaginal tissues and decreased lubrication, usually the result of low estrogen production. Most commonly, this condition is caused by menopause, but may also be caused by breast-feeding or some forms of birth control that may affect estrogen levels in the body.
Atrophic vaginitis may cause discomfort or pain during intercourse and thereby decrease overall libido. Any genital dysfunction may also affect urinary health. Low libido often leads to low self-confidence and may also affect relationships.
ThermiVa restores vaginal lubrication, treating atrophic vaginitis and helping to reestablish normal vaginal function. This treatment may eliminate your need for estrogens, providing a natural way to improve your vaginal health.
