Algonquin dermatologist describes the benefits of non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation
Posted by Dr. Vikram Khanna
Pregnancy and childbirth can cause dramatic changes to the body. One of the most common (and most embarrassing) is loosened vaginal tissue. This issue can bother women from an aesthetic standpoint and a functionality standpoint. Weakened, stretched vaginal tissue can cause issues such as vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse, and urinary incontinence. If you are dealing with any of these issues, there are many benefits to seeking vaginal rejuvenation treatment from your doctor. At Dermatology Specialists of Illinois, we have experience successfully treating women in Algonquin who are suffering with these sensitive issues with the help of ThermiVa.
ThermiVa is a non-surgical method of vaginal rejuvenation that can strengthen and tighten loose, sagging tissue. Each safe and pain-free treatment takes less than an hour, and with no downtime, patients can see results in just a few weeks.
How ThermiVa works to tighten loose tissue in the vaginal area
ThermiVa uses radiofrequency technology to deliver thermal energy to the vulvovaginal area. During each treatment, the ThermiVa handheld device will gently heat both internal and external tissue causing it to contract and stimulating the production of new collagen to tighten and tone. ThermiVa is used to treat both the labia and vagina which allows it to stop some of the most common side effects of loosening tissue such as:
Minimizing or stopping stress urinary incontinence, which can cause you to leak urine when you sneeze or cough.
Eliminating vaginal dryness and restoring the body’s natural vaginal lubrication
Relief from pain during intercourse
Enhance sexual satisfaction and improvement in orgasm
Improve confidence by eliminating discomfort and embarrassment
Ideal candidates for ThermiVA are patients who have had zero to one vaginal delivery and who wish to improve their sexual sensitivity and eliminate the embarrassment of urinary incontinence. ThermiVa offers hope for patients who thought surgery was the only option to tighten the labia and vaginal tissues.
What you should expect from ThermiVa treatments
Vaginal laxity after childbirth can be a sensitive topic, and we understand that. Before undergoing ThermiVa treatments you will meet for a private consultation with Dr. Khanna and one of our female staff members. If you decide to proceed with ThermiVa, the treatments can be performed in the office without the need for any special preparations.
During ThermiVa treatments, ultrasound gel is applied to the area, so the wand can glide easily during treatment. The wand is then used gently to deliver the thermal radiofrequency energy to the labia, vulva, and internal tissue. ThermiVa treatments are not painful, and therefore, do not require anesthetic. Patients will simply feel a warm sensation from the wand, which feels similar to an internal ultrasound. There is no downtime after ThermiVa treatments, so patients can feel free to return to normal daily activities.
When you will see results from ThermiVa
Results from the first ThermiVA session can often be seen anywhere from one to two days after treatment up to a week or two. Patients will continue to notice improvement in the tightness of the vaginal tissue as the body produces new collagen.
Some patients choose to only have one ThermiVa treatment while the majority opt for two to three treatments spaced a month apart for optimal improvement. Each treatment can be completed in under an hour. Results can last anywhere from six months to a year before scheduling a maintenance treatment.
How to find out more about ThermiVa
At Dermatology Specialists of Illinois, we believe that sexual health and wellness is important to women, which is why we strive to offer a variety of non-surgical options to help women look and feel their best. Childbirth and the natural aging process can cause changes that impact sexual enjoyment, confidence, and basic functionality. ThermiVa is an excellent option for many women and can provide both aesthetic and functional improvement.
If you are tired of the daily discomforts associated with vaginal dryness, pain during sex, and stress incontinence, it’s time to find a solution that can improve your quality of life.
