What is vaginal rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is a technique that corrects changes in the vagina due to aging, childbirth and hormonal changes. These treatments can address vaginal laxity, urinary incontinence, dryness and decreased sensation. Most often, sexual rejuvenation treatments use radiofrequency or laser energy to strengthen the vaginal tissue. If you’re seeking vaginal rejuvenation, your next step is a private consultation at one of our offices in NYC or NJ.
What vaginal rejuvenation treatments are available?
At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists in NYC and NJ, we offer only the top vaginal rejuvenation treatments available. We use ThermiVa™ for vaginal rejuvenation in NYC, which uses a special radiofrequency device to tighten loose vaginal tissue. ThermiVa™ is a safe procedure that is carefully controlled throughout treatment and has been shown to provide excellent results.
What is ThermiVa™?
During menopause, or as part of natural factors prior to menopause, many women can experience a wide range of symptoms, including vaginal dryness, incontinence, and vaginal laxity. While these symptoms are all a natural part of aging or childbirth, they can be uncomfortable and inconvenient. And thanks to advances in medicine and science, they are unnecessary.
There are several invasive procedures available to treat unwanted vaginal symptoms, but most women shy away from surgical interventions. Today there is another option. ThermiVa is the first non-invasive, pain-free treatment for some menopausal symptoms. Through the use of controlled thermal energy, some side effects of aging can be minimized. This treatment may also be used to improve the cosmetic appearance of a patient’s labia.
How does ThermiVA work?
ThermiVa™ is a quick and painless alternative to surgical vaginal rejuvenation that uses a special radiofrequency device to tighten loose vaginal tissue. ThermiVa™ works by carefully monitoring and regulating the temperature that is delivered to the deeper layer of tissue. This treatment method has many positive results, including the stimulation of tissue through contractions, increasing sensation, and the promotion of collagen production.
Typically, patients will require three separate NYC ThermiVa™ treatments, carried out every three to four weeks. Many patients experience some improvement in symptoms after only one treatment. Once the initial course of treatments has ended, patients can have maintenance treatments every 6 to 12 months.
Am I a candidate for ThermiVa™?
If you have any of the following symptoms, you may be a candidate for ThermiVa™.
- Vaginal laxity and a loose feeling
- Dissatisfied with the appearance of the labia majora
- Sexual dysfunction and orgasmic problems
- Pelvic prolapse such as fallen rectum or bladder
- Difficulty retaining tampons
- Symptoms of urinary leakage
- Menopausal women with dry labial tissue or vagina
Is ThermiVa™ safe?
After initial clinical studies, the FDA has classified ThermiVa™ as a safe, non-surgical treatment for vaginal laxity. No infections, blisters, burns, or nerve damage have been reported.
Are anesthetics needed for this procedure?
Because temperature is carefully regulated and controlled to keep the patient comfortable throughout the procedure, no general or local anesthetics are needed.
How long does the procedure take?
The average time for a labia majora reduction treatment is no more than 10 minutes, with an additional 15 minutes for each vaginal tightening procedure.
What kind of downtime is associated with ThermiVA?
There is absolutely no downtime for ThermiVa™. You may resume all activities, including sexual activity, the very same day.
How long do the results last?
Results from the initial 3 treatments of ThermiVa™ typically last for 9 to 12 months.
