Natural aging is a process that occurs in all regions of the body, but some areas might be affected more so than others. The vagina, in particular, can be a cause of concern for many women who are experiencing dryness or soreness during sexual activity or in everyday life.
Before the development of more innovative procedures, surgery was often the treatment recommended to enhance libido and vaginal laxity, but now, thanks to ThermiVa, you no longer have to undergo invasive procedures to improve our quality of life.* Dr. Carl N. Williams offers ThermiVa as a treatment option for women who wish to improve the condition of their vagina, whether that be for sexual purposes or their own comfort. As a non-surgical procedure, ThermiVa is painless and promotes the general health of your body with hardly any downtime.*
How Does ThermiVa Work?
ThermiVa is a temperature-controlled system that uses radiofrequency energy to strengthen the vaginal muscles.* A thin, handheld applicator transmits heat to the inner and outer portions of the vagina, which works to stimulate collagen production in the treated tissues.* The onset of collagen begins to repair and replace damaged skin cells so that there is improved coordination in the vaginal muscles and greater integrity in the skin.*
Who Is a Candidate for ThermiVa?
ThermiVa is an ideal procedure for women who wish to improve their vaginal health without receiving surgery. After childbirth, during menopause or due to natural aging, the vaginal muscles can begin to weaken, and the skin surrounding the vagina can become loose and start to sag. As a result, many women experience a lack of sensation during intercourse as well as little sexual satisfaction, vaginal dryness, orgasmic dysfunction, stress incontinence and more.
Vaginal issues can affect your physical and emotional health and impact your relationship with your partner. To combat your concerns, we may recommend treatment sessions with ThermiVa.
During your personal consultation, we will ensure you are healthy enough to receive treatment with ThermiVa. If you are currently pregnant or have a vaginal infection, it’s best to wait until your vagina has recovered before receiving treatment.
You will be awake during the procedure, but experience no discomfort due to topical anesthetic applied before your treatment begins. Dr. Williams’ nurse, Nicole, will use a narrow, handheld wand, which she gently glides over or inserts into areas around the vagina, usually near the external labia and within the vaginal canal.
The radiofrequency energy heats the vaginal tissues and stimulates collagen production, which begins working to replenish damaged skin cells and tighten the muscles.* The procedure in its entirety should take no longer than one hour to complete, and we will ensure your comfort and relaxation throughout the nonsurgical treatment. Once your procedure is finished, you can go about your daily routine without any complications other than slight soreness in the vaginal area.
What to Expect from ThermiVa
Many patients notice an immediate difference after their first treatment session with ThermiVa, but we recommend that you undergo up to three sessions for the best rejuvenation.* Full results will become apparent a couple of months after your final procedure, where you will notice a difference in the appearance and functionality of your vagina.* To help maintain your results, follow-up appointments are usually necessary every 8-12 months or at the discretion of Nicole. Together, you can determine the right amount of treatment sessions that will benefit you the most.
With continued ThermiVa procedures, you will experience increased vaginal tightness, both internally and externally at the pleasure of you and your partner as well as decreased dryness that makes everyday life and sexual activity more comfortable.* Additionally, if you suffer from stress incontinence, you will see a reduction in leakage, which will give you a sense of freedom that improves your overall quality of life.*
