All women experience loss of elasticity in their labia and vaginas and this elasticity loss can affect their bladder control, lubrication, and sexual pleasure. Eagle’s Landing OB/GYN offers THERMIva® treatments to our patients to help them regain vaginal elasticity. Don’t be embarrassed. You’re not alone, and we’d love to help you. Here is more information so you can decide if vaginal rejuvenation is right for you.
What Causes Vaginal Elasticity Loss?
Age and childbirth are the primary causes of labia and vaginal elasticity loss. You can choose not to have children but you can’t stop aging. It’s a frustrating fact of life that over time, your body reduces its collagen production and, as a result, your tissues begin to sag, including genital and vaginal tissue.
How Does Vaginal Rejuvenation Work?
The THERMIva® vaginal rejuvenation procedure uses radio frequencies to tighten your labia and vagina. This not only restores the tissues to their younger states but also helps increase lubrication and prevent infections. Radio frequencies gently heat the tissue to promote the collagen growth of your youth.
If you opt to have vaginal rejuvenation done by one of our physicians, he or she will run the THERMIva® wand over your labia and insert it into the vagina to stimulate the collagen growth. You will feel some heat, but do not worry. The heat sensation doesn’t burn your tissue. The procedure is not painful, either. It feels like a warm massage.
How Long Does THERMIva® Take?
Each vaginal rejuvenation procedure takes about 30 minutes and depending on the condition of your labia and vagina, you may need multiple procedures initially. You will also have to have maintenance procedures once or twice a year after the initial vaginal rejuvenation to keep collagen production active.
Am I a Good Candidate for THERMIva®?
The best candidates for vaginal rejuvenation are women who have had children and are now facing or into menopause. Women who suffer from leaking bladders might also benefit from THERMIva®. Finally, if you’d prefer to treat your vaginal dryness without hormones, vaginal rejuvenation can do so.
