Feminine Rejuvenation in High Point, NC
Many characteristics define a woman’s femininity, such as long silky hair, perky breasts, slimming curves, and a round buttocks. However, there is one area of the body many women consider treating but may be too embarrassed to talk about: the vulva. Women who suffer from an enlarged or uneven labia and would like to alleviate physical or emotional discomfort due to the appearance and structure of their vulva can ease their pain with ThermiVa®.
What Is ThermiVa®?
Designed by Thermi Aesthetics, ThermiVa® is a safe, non-surgical treatment to help restore the appearance of the labia and tighten the vaginal canal. Using a gently curve-shaped device, ThermiVa® utilizes radiofrequency waves that carefully heat the inner and outer vulvovaginal tissue to tighten the vaginal and labial areas. Not only does this treatment provide comfort, but it can also address certain issues like:
- Vaginal laxity
- Vaginal dryness
- Urinary leakage
- Orgasmic dysfunction
- Labial Irritation
How Is ThermiVa® Performed?
ThermiVa® is performed by one of our nurses on an outpatient basis and can take up to 45 minutes to complete with no anesthesia, shots, or downtime. This temperature-controlled treatment system uses radiofrequency energy to heat the vaginal tissues. A small handpiece is inserted into the vulva to radiate and gently heat the tissue. The radiofrequency energy then stimulates the tissues causing them to contract, tightening the vaginal walls. ThermiVa® can also be performed on the external vulvar tissues to provide the same effect. It is quick and safe and feels like a warm, comfortable massage.
How Long Will My ThermiVa® Results Last?
ThermiVa® can result in softer and smoother looking skin around the vulva with effects lasting from nine to 12 months. Not only will it improve muscle coordination, but it can also safely and successfully rejuvenate the vagina to enhance sensation and improve sexual pleasure. Patients who have undergone a ThermiVa® treatment will only need to visit their surgeon once a year for touch-up treatments.
Frequently Asked Questions About ThermiVa®
How long is a ThermiVa® session?
Each session takes about 30 to 45 minutes. Women report that the treatment feels like a warm massage to your vulva and vaginal area. There is no downtime afterward, and you can resume your normal activities immediately. You can even resume sexual activity, go swimming, and use hot tubs—unless you have rare spotting episodes. In those cases, you should wait for one or two days.
How soon will I notice results from ThermiVa®?
If you are seeking treatment for incontinence with ThermiVa®, you may experience beneficial results immediately. You may also feel tighter right away; however, the full effects of vaginal tightening take a bit longer, usually two to three weeks. For vaginal dryness, you are likely to notice moistness in approximately two weeks. Maximum effects are typically realized by three weeks post-treatment.
How many ThermiVa® treatments will I need?
Most women receive three ThermiVa® treatments, performed one month apart. Touch up treatment sessions may be performed annually.
Can ThermiVa® help with vaginal dryness caused by birth control pills?
Yes, these treatments are designed to enhance vaginal sensitivity, even if the cause for vaginal dryness is birth control pills or hormones.
How long should I wait after giving birth to get ThermiVa® treatments?
If you had a routine vaginal delivery, we recommend waiting at least six weeks after delivery before seeking vaginal rejuvenation through ThermiVa®. For women who had complications during their deliveries, clearance from your OB/GYN is recommended.
Who is a good candidate for ThermiVa®?
If you have atrophic vaginitis, vaginal dryness, orgasmic or sexual dysfunction, urinary leakage, stress incontinence, an enlarged or uneven labia, vaginal laxity, or labial irritation, you may be a suitable candidate for ThermiVa® vaginal rejuvenation. Healthy women aged 18 and above can benefit from these treatments. Both pre- and post-menopausal women are good candidates.
We recommend that you have a regular pap smear within the two years prior to treatment and that your most recent pap is normal. Women with properly placed IUDs are also suitable candidates.
