Most women know their skin and hair will change. But many women are not prepared for the more intimate changes that come with aging.
Vaginal dryness, laxity, and sensitivity are common occurrences for women as they age. And it’s fair to assume that most women would rather live without these effects of aging.
At Beach Cities Vein & Laser Center in El Segundo, CA, we can help make this a reality with ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation treatments. Learn everything you need to know about this revolutionary rejuvenating procedure here.
What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is a non-surgical procedure that aims to improve sexual wellness and function. It’s a common choice for women who have given birth vaginally or gone through menopause since both of these events can cause hormonal changes that may impact the vagina.
How Does Vaginal Rejuvenation Work?
When it comes to vaginal rejuvenation, ThermiVa is the best option available today. This non-hormonal, minimally invasive procedure uses gentle radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen production in the vaginal tissue, increase blood circulation, and strengthen the vaginal muscles.
What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation Designed to Treat?
By correcting the underlying causes, ThermiVa can address a variety of vaginal concerns women experience as they age. Many of these concerns go hand in hand, such as weakened vaginal muscles and urinary incontinence. When you treat one, you’ll likely notice improvements with the other as well.
Weakened Vaginal Muscles
It’s normal for vaginal muscles to become weaker over time. Although it’s particularly common after giving birth, women in all stages of life may experience this phenomenon. ThermiVa gently tightens, tones, and strengthens your vaginal muscles and canal to help improve sensation in the area and improve bladder control.
If you struggle with painful intercourse, vaginal dryness may be to blame. Despite ample stimulation and desire, many women struggle to produce enough natural lubrication to make sex pleasurable.
The increase in collagen and blood circulation provided by ThermiVa results in increased natural lubrication that makes sex more enjoyable.
Most women know how important collagen is for their skin’s health but don’t realize the role it plays in their vagina’s health too. As you get older, your body’s collagen production naturally slows down. This causes a noticeable change in tissue firmness and texture.
Vaginal laxity may also be caused by weakened muscles due to age or childbirth.
By stimulating collagen production and strengthening vaginal muscles, ThermiVa can tackle the root cause of vaginal laxity.
Less blood flow to your vagina means less sensitivity in the area. For many women, this makes it difficult to achieve an orgasm and enjoy sex with their partner. Luckily, ThermiVa is proven to increase blood flow to the vagina.
Although ThermiVa is meant to treat the inside of the vagina, the increased blood flow in the area also improves clitoral sensitivity in many patients. This overall sensation improvement makes it easier to have an orgasm and improves the quality of the orgasms you have.
If you struggle with urinary incontinence, ThermiVa can help you say goodbye to panty liners. By strengthening your vaginal muscles, ThermiVa helps you regain control over your bladder. Whether you experience stress incontinence or urge incontinence, ThermiVa can help put you back in control.
What to Expect During Your ThermiVa Rejuvenation Procedure
The ThermiVa rejuvenation procedure is quick, comfortable, and convenient. Treatment only takes about 30 minutes to complete and requires no effort from you at all. No anesthesia is necessary, and you remain awake during the entire ThermiVa procedure.
During treatment, the tip of the ThermiVa device is gently inserted into your vagina. The ThermiVa wand is very thin — only half an inch thick — and is designed with your comfort in mind.
Once inserted, the device emits gentle waves of RF energy to the surrounding tissue. Many women report a warm and relaxing sensation during ThermiVa treatments.
There is no downtime or recovery period associated with ThermiVa. After your ThermiVa procedure, you are free to go back home or to work and resume your normal daily activities.
When Can You Start to See ThermiVa Results?
Some women notice an improvement in as little as two weeks after a single treatment. However, the effects of ThermiVa are cumulative. This means that they continue to improve with subsequent treatments.
The average ThermiVa treatment plan consists of three to four treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. However, this number may be different for you. We will determine the ideal treatment plan for you based on your unique needs and concerns.
How Long Does ThermiVa Vaginal Rejuvenation Last?
Vaginal rejuvenation with ThermiVa provides long-lasting results that you can enjoy for many months. On average, ThermiVa results last for 9 to 12 months. After this length of time, you’ll likely start to notice the effects slowly wearing off. But that’s no cause for concern. We can easily prolong the effects of ThermiVa with follow-up treatments.
As a result, you can maintain peak sexual function and wellness with just a few quick office visits per year.
