With time and after childbirth, many women experience vaginal looseness and sagging of the outer skin. These changes can lead to decreased sexual sensation and satisfaction, as well as incontinence and vaginal dryness. Vaginal rejuvenation seeks to improve vaginal tightness as well as improve the outward appearance of the vagina. ThermiVA is a nonsurgical procedure for vaginal rejuvenation. The Thermiva Rejuvenation Procedure is performed in office with no anesthesia, and has no downtime.
ThermiVA uses radiofrequency energy delivered through a specially designed hand piece. Radiofrequency energy gently heats the deeper layer of the vaginal tissues to stimulate collagen formation. Collagen is the building block of skin. The heating caused by ThermiVA causes some immediate tightening and the collagen stimulation continues for months after the procedure. The heating has also been shown to improve blood flow to the vaginal tissues.
The hand piece which is 1/2 inch in width, is designed to be safe and comfortable. It is used to tighten the internal vaginal tissues and then is applied to the exterior labia to improve their appearance.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes and is performed in office with no anesthesia required. The energy is delivered in a temperature controlled fashion and is tailored to your comfort level. There is no downtime. The typical protocol is 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. Patients may see some improvement immediately, but it usually takes several months after the last treatment to see the best results.
ThermiVa is FDA approved for skin tightening, however, patients also report increased sensation, moisture, and improvement in symptoms of stress urinary incontinence. The great thing about ThermiVA is that it can easily be repeated for more results and annual maintenance.
Just like everywhere else on the body, aging continues its inevitable course. ThermiVA doesn’t change that. There are many other factors that affect the results including genetics, overall health and degree of looseness. Most women will require an annual treatment to maintain their results.
The average cost of the Thermiva Rejuvenation Procedure ranges from $2500-$3500 for three treatment sessions. This is in comparison to a surgical labiaplasty which averages $4000 and a surgical vaginplasty which averages $5500. In patients with mild to moderate vaginal laxity, ThermiVa can replace both these procedures.
The first step in the vaginal rejuvenation process is to schedule a free consultation. During this appointment we can discuss your expectations and determine if ThermiVA will be able to deliver the results you desire. ThermiVA is not for everyone, especially if there is a significant amount of vaginal looseness or loss of support of the pelvic organs (the bladder, uterus, and rectum). These patients may require surgical intervention. ThermiVA is best for patients with mild to moderate vaginal looseness. Contact us now for your Thermiva near me procedure!
