Childbirth and the natural effects of aging can both have remarkable effects on various parts of the body. Vaginal and vulvar atrophy, while not openly discussed, is one such effect. Although it's not an urgent medical concern, its symptoms can be physically uncomfortable, and it can significantly affect your sexual wellbeing and feelings of personal confidence:
Take back control. Reclaim, restore, and revive with ThermiVa. ThermiVa is a nonsurgical, hormone-free technique for alleviating these symptoms. ThermiVa uses carefully directed radiofrequency energy to tone and tighten the vaginal and vulvar tissues. Radiofrequency energy causes these tissues to contract while also encouraging the growth of collagen, restoring tone and tightness in a gentle and safe treatment without discomfort or downtime.
At our practice, ThermiVa is popular both on its own and as a nonsurgical element of a comprehensive mommy makeover.
Dr. Hubbard's trained staff performs the treatment right here in our office. There's no anesthesia involved, and you can comfortably return to your regular daily activities once your appointment is over. After your first visit, you will have 2 additional treatments 4 to 6 weeks apart.
ThermiVa is a wand-shaped applicator that directs radiofrequency energy to the tissues where you'd like to see improvement. Depending on your desired results, you can customize your treatment. Your session may include your labia majora (outer lips), labia minora (inner lips), clitoral hood, or inside your vagina. As RF energy is applied through ThermiVa, you may experience a sensation of warmth or tingling — however, ThermiVa is not painful. You should expect to be in our office for about an hour.
Although you may experience noticeable improvement shortly after your first treatment, it requires a series of 3 treatment sessions for your complete rejuvenation. You may find that you want a single maintenance treatment after one year. You'll be able to continue with your normal daily activities, including exercise, as soon as your appointment is over.
ThermiVa has not been evaluated on women who are pregnant or nursing, so we recommend that those women postpone the procedure. Additionally, if you have an active urinary tract infection, sexually transmitted infection, or have recently had an abnormal Pap smear, you should not undergo ThermiVa.
Depending on the concerns you'd like to address, you may feel varying degrees of warmth or tingling as the gentle radiofrequency energy is administered. If you'd like to tone the vaginal walls, you may feel some pressure during treatment. However, ThermiVa is not painful and doesn't require any type of anesthesia or pain control.
