Feminine Rejuvenation in High Point, NC
Many characteristics define a woman’s femininity; for some, it’s their long silky hair or perky breasts. For others, it might be their sensual curves or round buttocks. However, there is another area of the body that many women consider asking their doctor about but may be too embarrassed to bring it up.
Go ahead and say these words out loud: labia and vulva. You should feel no shame when seeking help with intimate feminine concerns like an enlarged or uneven labia, and at Piedmont Plastic Surgery in High Point, North Carolina, our highly-skilled and compassionate team will quickly put you at ease.
Piedmont Plastic Surgery offers a state-of-the-art, non-surgical treatment called ThermiVa® for women who are looking for feminine rejuvenation without undergoing labiaplasty.
What Is ThermiVa®?
Designed by Thermi Aesthetics, ThermiVa® is a safe, non-surgical treatment designed to address concerns with both the internal and external vaginal tissues. This procedure is used to help restore the appearance of the labia and tighten the vaginal canal using a gentle curve-shaped device that delivers radiofrequency waves.
ThermiVa® treats the vulva by carefully heating the inner and outer vulvovaginal tissue to tighten the vagina and labia.
Benefits of ThermiVa®
- Tighter tissues: Treatment with ThermiVa® results in tighter, smoother skin and relief from a host of feminine symptoms.
- Vaginal looseness: Patients treated with ThermiVa® usually experience increased vaginal tightness
- More effective vaginal lubrication: Women who have suffered from pain and dryness during intercourse in the past often find significant improvement without hormone treatments.
- Bladder control: When ThermiVa® treatments are combined with Kegel exercises, patients can strengthen the vaginal walls, which helps them avoid embarrassing leaks and reduces urinary urgency.
- Labia rejuvenation: ThermiVa® treatments lead to smoother external vaginal skin, a better sexual experience, and more confidence in their intimate appearance.
How Is Treatment With ThermiVa® Performed?
ThermiVa® treatment 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 a small handpiece that is inserted into the vulva to radiate and gently heat the tissue with radiofrequency energy. This energy stimulates the tissues causing them to contract and tighten the vaginal walls. The ThermiVa® procedure can also be performed on the external vulvar tissues to provide the same effect. All you will feel is a gentle warmth as the treatment is quick, safe, and painless.
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. It also improves muscle control and can successfully rejuvenate the vagina to enhance sensation and improve sexual pleasure.
This treatment has the potential to significantly increase the quality of life for women and their partners. Patients who have undergone a ThermiVa® treatment will only need to visit their surgeon once a year for touch-up treatments.
For patients who want a more permanent solution, are finished having children, and don’t mind undergoing surgery, Piedmont Plastic surgery also offers labiaplasty.
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 after 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 of vaginal dryness is birth control pills or hormones.
How long should I wait after giving birth to get ThermiVa® treatments?
If you had a normal 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 and both premenopausal and postmenopausal 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.
