Just because you’ve had children and you’re getting a little older doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice some of the enjoyment you get out of sex. At the Laser Center of Maryland, we offer ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation that doesn’t require any surgery or downtime.
ThermiVa uses radiofrequency energy to tighten the tissues of the vagina and vulva, without plastic surgery. ThermiVa is FDA approved and can improve the appearance of the labia majora and minora, along with tightening the tissues of the vaginal canal.
Why vaginal rejuvenation?
A woman’s tissues in her vagina can become relaxed after vaginal childbirth and due to simple aging. This laxity can diminish sensation during intercourse, reduce sexual satisfaction, and affect relationships. Vaginal rejuvenation can tighten tissues back up. With aging, the effects of menopause can also cause physical and functional changes, such as excessive dryness and hanging, saggy labia.
Beyond sexual aspects, these changes can also lead to mild to moderate stress incontinence and an overactive bladder.
ThermiVa improves all of these issues.
How does ThermiVa work?
As with all skin, collagen is the key. When radiofrequency energy is applied to the dermis, the skin’s second layer, the body responds as if wounded, producing more collagen to “heal” the wound. When existing collagen is heated, the molecules contract, remodeling and reorganizing the molecular network, both tightening the skin and encouraging new collagen to be produced.
With ThermiVa, a small wand applicator is used to deliver the radiofrequency energy both to the interior walls of the vagina and to the external labia and other tissues. This energy delivery is non-invasive, and there isn’t any downtime. But once delivered, it immediately begins tightening the interior and exterior tissues. The effects last for around two years, at which point the ThermiVa procedure can be done again.
