Aging and childbirth can impact a woman’s body in various ways. One of the most common changes is also one that is the most overlook: loosened vaginal tissue.
An area of concern to many women is the appearance of the vulvovaginal area. Further, the functional challenges that this poses can be a real concern.
Extended and sagging labia along with weak vaginal tissues can cause urinary stress incontinence, discomfort in wearing certain clothes, vaginal dryness, and pain during sexual activity. ThemiVa is a proven non-surgical cosmetic dermatology procedure that strengthens loose vaginal tissues and tightens and tones the tissue simultaneously.
ThermiVa works effectively within weeks and has no downtime. It is painless, safe, and its treatment time is less than one hour. Texas Surgical Dermatology, led by board certified dermatologists Dr. Tri H. Nguyen and Dr. George Hughes III provides ThermiVa vaginal tightening treatment to patients in Houston, Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, Texas, and surrounding locations.
How does ThermiVa correct laxity in the vulvovaginal region?
ThemiVa targets and tightens loose tissue using RF technology. The energy is transmitted transcutaneously or through the skin utilizing a wand-type device. In the course of the treatment, the energy gently provides heat to the external and internal tissues, which includes both the labia and vagina.
This heat causes the tissues to contract and the deeper layers of the skin produce new collagen. Additionally, ThermiVa dermatology treatment can address problems related to vaginal atrophy along with toning and tightening the external tissues and labia.
Some of the key functional benefits of ThermiVa include:
- Decrease or eliminate urinary incontinence
- Restore the natural lubrication of the vagina
- Enhance orgasms and reduce pain during intercourse
- Improve sexual activity
- Make wearing tighter clothes more comfortable
- Improve self-confidence and establish a sense of well-being
What to expect during ThermiVa treatments?
A patient’s journey with ThermiVa commences with a consultation with a board certified dermatologist. If the dermatologist establishes that ThermiVa is a viable alternative for the patient, they will discuss all the benefits and limitations of the procedure to educate the patient and help her make a well-considered decision.
The treatment will be conducted in a comfortable office setting.
No special preparation will be necessary. To start the treatment, an ultrasound gel is applied to the vaginal tissues to facilitate the easy movement of the ThermiVa wand over the tissues. The wand is put on the tissues and passed over the vulva, internal vaginal tissues, and the labia to deliver the RF energy.
The treatment is painless, and avoids the need for anesthesia. The experience is similar to a transvaginal ultrasound. A majority of the patients only experience a light, warm feeling as the wand passes over the skin. There is no downtime and the patient can immediately resume her routine activities.
Some patients feel noticeable improvements within a couple of days after the treatment while others may need a week or two to feel the improvements. The outcome continues to improve over the next many weeks as the body generates new collagen in the vaginal tissues.
