ThermiVa® Is a Non-invasive Way to Rejuvenate Vaginal Tissues
Childbirth, age, and hormonal changes such as menopause can have an impact on your vaginal tissues, which can in turn impact your intimacy with your partner, as well as your overall comfort. Fortunately, Dr. Benjamin Boudreaux and Dr. Jeffrey Claiborne provide ThermiVa® treatments at their Mandeville, LA, practice. This safe, non-invasive treatment uses radiofrequency energy to visibly tighten the vaginal tissues after just one treatment, without any discomfort or downtime. During a personal consultation with Dr. Boudreaux or Dr. Claiborne, they can determine if ThermiVa® is right for you.
How ThermiVa® Works
Skin laxity is largely due to the breakdown of collagen that occurs as we age. Collagen is a vital component of our connective tissue, and it allows skin to stretch and return to its normal shape and position. When heat is properly applied to the skin, it can rejuvenate collagen, restoring a supple quality to the skin. ThermiVa® incorporates this principle into a specialized and delicately performed procedure that has helped many women to achieve satisfying results and a boost in confidence.
About ThermiVa® Treatment
ThermiVa® can treat both the internal and external areas of the vagina. A single disposable device is applied to each desired treatment area for three to five minutes. During treatment, you will not feel any pain or discomfort, but you will feel a warming and almost hot sensation. However, the heat will not cause you any harm. A single treatment usually lasts about 30 minutes.
Most patients require a total of three treatments, but you will likely see immediate results after just one treatment. You will notice a tightening of your labia and other vaginal tissues, with improvements in appearance and a reduction in dryness and leaking. There is no recovery or downtime required, so after your treatment you can immediately resume your normal activities, including sexual intercourse. Results typically last one year and you may require maintenance treatments one to two times per year as the initial results begin to subside.
The device is applied to each desired treatment area for three to five minutes. A single treatment usually lasts about 30 minutes.
Candidates for ThermiVa®
ThermiVa® can benefit women between the ages of 30 and 60 who wish to address:
- Accidental urination or incontinence
- Vaginal dryness resulting in uncomfortable or painful intercourse
- Difficulty or inability to achieve orgasm
- Labial laxity that can result in discomfort when wearing tight clothing
These issues are often the result of childbirth, especially after multiple vaginal births. During your consultation with Dr. Boudreaux and Dr. Claiborne, they can take careful note of your goals and determine if ThermiVa® is the best approach to helping you achieve the results you desire.
