As a woman, you’re probably familiar with many of the ways your body changes as you age and have children. Older friends and family members talk about stretch marks, loose skin, cellulite, and gray hair — but no one ever mentions the changes your vagina undergoes.
It can be jarring when your vulva and vagina start to look and feel different than they did in your 20s. You may notice that the area is not as pink as it used to be or that your labia majora is a little laxer these days.
All of this is normal. These changes happen due to hormone fluctuations, changes in collagen production, and decreased circulation brought on by the normal aging process. However, some vaginal changes can have far-reaching impacts and may put a damper on your sex life or overall comfort level.
Luckily, several vagina-related concerns can be treated with a single procedure known as ThermiVa. Keep reading to learn all about this vaginal rejuvenation treatment and its many benefits.
What Is ThermiVa?
ThermiVa is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that is meant to tighten and rejuvenate the inside and outside of your vagina. It can also help restore color and shape to your vagina.
This treatment is best for women who have undergone unwanted changes after childbirth or menopause and are looking to restore their vagina to its former condition.
How Does ThermiVa Work?
During ThermiVa treatment, a handheld device is gently guided to the treatment area. The device then repeatedly sends out gentle waves of radiofrequency (RF) energy.
RF energy is a revolutionary development in the cosmetic world. It has been proven to increase collagen production, tighten skin, and improve blood circulation. All of this also makes it an excellent technology for vaginal rejuvenation.
Most people choose to get full coverage treatment, but ThermiVa can be targeted to treat just the external or internal areas if you prefer. For example, if you are happy with the way your vagina looks but you struggle with vaginal dryness, you could opt for treatment on the inside only.
5 Benefits of ThermiVa Vaginal Rejuvenation
It’s hard to choose just a handful of benefits to highlight when it comes to ThermiVa since there are so many. However, here are five of the most talked-about benefits of ThermiVa treatments at Vanitas Medical Group in Orlando, FL.
1. ThermiVa Can Reduce Urinary Incontinence
Every mom knows the gamble that comes with sneezing with a full bladder, especially soon after childbirth. This minor urinary incontinence improves for some people after giving birth, but it worsens over time for others.
ThermiVa treatment can help relieve urinary incontinence and put you back in control of your bladder.
2. ThermiVa Non-Surgically Improves Vaginal Appearance
The RF waves delivered by ThermiVa gently tighten the vulvar skin that has lost laxity over the years. Additionally, since ThermiVa increases blood circulation, it can help improve the color of your vulva. All of this can help you achieve an appearance that many find more visually appealing.
A tighter labia majora can also help women who experience physical discomfort while wearing bathing suits and other tight garments.
3. ThermiVa Can Enhance Your Sex Life
For most people, ThermiVa’s ability to improve their sex life is the biggest allure. Normal hormonal changes can leave you with vaginal dryness and laxity, making intercourse less enjoyable and, for some, painful.
However, ThermiVa addresses all of these issues to make intercourse more pleasurable for you and your partner.
ThermiVa can significantly increase vaginal sensation by tightening your vagina and improving vaginal lubrication. As a result, many women find it is easier to achieve orgasm after receiving ThermiVa treatment.
4. Treatment Is Quick and Easy
ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation only takes about 45 minutes to complete, and there is no special preparation you must do beforehand. It usually takes about 10 to 15 minutes to treat the vulva, then about 15 to 20 minutes to treat the inside of your vagina. This means you could be in and out of our Orlando office in as little as an hour.
5. No Downtime Is Necessary
There is no local or general anesthesia used during ThermiVa since it is a non-invasive procedure. As a result, there is no downtime associated with ThermiVa or any special aftercare. You can even resume sexual intercourse the same day if you want.
When Can You Start Seeing Results from ThermiVa?
Some women notice small changes immediately. However, you can expect to notice improved vaginal tightness and lubrication within two weeks of your appointment.
How Many Treatment Sessions Are Necessary?
We typically recommend three sessions of ThermiVa to get the full effect you’re looking for. However, you may decide to get more or less, depending on what results you want to achieve and how quickly results appear for you.
Getting Started Is Simple
