Learn about the advantages of ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation in Algonquin, IL practice
Posted by Dr. Vikram Khanna
While giving birth is a miraculous and happy event in one’s life, the after effects on a woman’s body may be less than desirable. Over the years, a woman’s vagina can become loose and may result in a variety of issues such as bladder leakage and dryness. However, with treatments such as ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation in Algonquin, IL, patients can seek a non-surgical solution. Learn about this procedure with a phone call to Dermatology Specialists of Illinois.
When the vaginal area loses its natural tightness on the inside and the outside, it can affect your overall life. There are many issues that can be caused by laxity of the vaginal walls and the labia, including:
Increased risk of infections
Decreased ability to achieve sexual satisfaction for the patient or partner
This is where ThermiVa can be used to rejuvenate the vaginal area without surgical intervention. This non-invasive treatment is a procedure that utilizes a device that emits radiofrequency energy. This heats the tissues and stimulates the body’s natural development of collagen, which results in tightening of the area. Other treatments available on the market use radiofrequency energy to tighten skin on other areas of the body, but the ThermiVA is specially designed for vaginal tightening.
Why choose ThermiVa?
ThermiVa is a wonderful way to rejuvenate the vaginal walls and the labia without dealing with downtime, discomfort, or surgical treatment. The procedure is completed in less than 30 minutes in the comfort of our office with discreet services. Patients do not need to prepare for their appointment, allowing them to stop in for the procedure when it is convenient to them and returning to their day without interruption. Success rates of 95 percent or more are seen with many of our patients who are ready to achieve a tightened vaginal area. Additionally, patients can have treatment done without scarring caused by surgery, or dealing with the risks of surgical treatments, including the risk of infection, blood clots, and scars.
What can I expect during the ThermiVa procedure?
Patients come into the office for their procedure without any preparations. Women lie on the treatment table in a position that is comfortable to them but allows the doctor to have access to the vaginal area. A special single-use wand is inserted into the vagina and can result in a heating sensation, which most patients find to be comfortable and not at all painful. For patients who are having the labia treated, the wand will also be targeted in this area as well. Inside the vagina, the wand may be positioned in a way to access all the necessary tissues to stimulate the body’s response to the radiofrequency energy. Patients can clean up after their treatment and will be able to go about the remainder of their day without any downtime. Some patients may choose to return later for further treatments to achieve even better results.
How to determine if you are a candidate for treatment
Patients who are candidates for ThermiVa may be dealing with problems such as recurring infections, bladder leakage, vaginal dryness, or unfulfilling sexual intercourse. Many of our patients have been patients who have had a natural (vaginal ) childbirth or are experiencing the effects of perimenopause. Some patients are more interested in the cosmetic effects of the external genitalia.
How long will the results of ThermiVa last?
Most patients will notice an improvement after several weeks as the body begins to produce more collagen in the area. The results will last approximately one year following the first series of three treatments, though some patients like to return for more treatments to continually improve the firmness in the area and maintain results.
