Algonquin dermatologists offers non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation with ThermiVA treatments
Posted by Dr. Vikram Khanna
Having a baby and the natural aging process can cause changes in the vaginal area that can affect sexual enjoyment and confidence. ThermiVa is a non-surgical radiofrequency (RF) procedure that can restore your body by rejuvenating the vaginal and labial area. When performed by our physician at Dermatology Specialists of Illinois, you can trust that you are in capable hands. If you are in the Algonquin, IL area, call us for a ThermiVa consultation.
What is ThermiVa?
After childbirth, many women experience the relaxation or loosening of vaginal muscles. For those who haven’t given birth, this can also occur as a natural aspect of the aging process. This relaxation can cause a reduction in sensation, pleasure, and satisfaction during sexual intercourse for both you and your partner. ThermiVA offers an effective solution for tightening the muscles of the external vulva and labia with results that are long-lasting.
How it works:
ThermiVA uses a temperature-controlled radiofrequency wand in a “S shape” to tighten the vaginal muscles, improving their appearance, functionality, and sensation. This non-surgical procedure uses a special device to externally treat the labia and vulva tissues. The RF energy gently heats the tissue to revive lax tissue. ThermiVa promotes remodeling of the collagen network which helps strengthen and support the muscles of the vagina. By improving elasticity in the skin and muscles, patients will experience and enjoy many benefits including:
The majority of patients who undergo the ThermiVa procedure will have three comfortable in-office treatments that are spaced a month apart, each session lasting about 20-30 minutes. It’s important to keep in mind that everyone’s body is different, and some may require more sessions for optimal results. The procedure is not painful or uncomfortable, however most patients do notice a warming sensation.
ThermiVA is completed in stages because improvements will increase over time as collagen remodeling continues. Most patients will notice an improvement in vaginal tightening, dryness, and increased sensation during intercourse after just the first session. Maintenance treatments are usually recommended every year or year and half moving forward.
ThermiVa treatments require no anesthesia and there is no downtime after a session. Patients can resume normal daily activities, including sexual relations, the same day. Results from ThermiVa are long lasting so patients can enjoy the benefits of this non-surgical procedure for many years.
Candidates for ThermiVa treatments
ThermiVA non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation can be used to treat a wide variety of issues. Patients who are suffering from any of the following symptoms or conditions are often excellent candidates:
Vaginal looseness after childbirth
Peri- or post-menopausal overactive bladder
Chronic vaginal infections
Loss of elasticity from aging
Why you should consider ThermiVa treatment
While both laser treatments and ThermiVa provide patients with the same results, ThermiVa is quicker and requires no anesthesia to increase volume, improve appearance, and restore sensation and functionality of the vagina. Additionally, laser treatments cannot be used on the labia, while ThermiVa treatments can.
Discussing loss of sensation and vaginal laxity can be uncomfortable for many women, and we understand that. When you make an appointment to discuss these symptoms, we will ensure that your consultation is completely private.
During the appointment, Dr. Khanna will determine if ThermiVa is the best treatment for your needs. Our team is always happy to answer any questions you have about the procedure before you decide to schedule your session. ThermiVa may be used as a stand-alone treatment, or in some cases, it may be one portion of a mommy makeover.
If you are affected by vaginal laxity and would like to restore tightness and youthfulness to the vaginal area, ThermiVa is a great non-surgical alternative to vaginoplasty.
