For over a decade physicians have used radio-frequency (RF) devices
to non invasively rejuvenate and shrink facial skin. The FDA
recently approved the use of Thermiva, an RF device for vaginal
rejuvenation. It tightens vaginal laxity, increases lubrication, and
improves urinary stress incontinence.
The vaginal wall and the labia are composed of connective
tissue, blood vessels, and nerves that get stretched and thinned
with childbirth and age. As a result, more than 50% of women
develop some degree of urinary stress incontinence, vaginal
laxity and dryness. Many women report decreased sexual
satisfaction associated with these changes. Laxity of the labia often causes irritation and discomfort
when wearing tight clothing or during sexual intercourse.
Previous treatment options included little more than absorbent
garments, Kegel exercises, vaginal creams, or major surgery.
Furthermore, sexual function is an intensely personal subject that
many patients have been reluctant to discuss with their physicians.
But this effective technology is changing the conversation. Thermiva
technology helps younger and older women impacted by childbirth and aging.
The recently released RF device, Thermiva, tightens the vaginal vault,
decreases stress incontinence, restores natural lubrication, and
significantly increases orgasmic response. Tightening of the labia
improves aesthetic appearance and function.
Best results occur with three treatment sessions spaced one month apart. Treatment is comfortable and does not
require any anesthesia. The patient may resume normal activity, including sexual intimacy, immediately.
Thermiva treatments are yet another nonsurgical medical treatment
designed to enable women to maintain an active lifestyle in spite of
the changes associated with motherhood and aging. Our doctors at the Laser Center of Maryland offer this
effective treatment. Call (410) 544-4600 for a FREE consultation. Let’s Talk!
