Has childbirth, menopause, or aging left you with vaginal issues that are affecting your wellbeing? Novo Med Spa, located in Frisco, TX, is pleased to offer ThermiVa as a safe, non-surgical treatment for numerous vaginal concerns. If you are uncomfortable or dissatisfied with some of the changes you are experiencing with your vagina, nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
What Is a ThermiVa Treatment?
A Nonsurgical Solution for Various Vaginal Concerns
ThermiVa works by delivering radiofrequency to certain areas of the vagina. This radiofrequency, or RF, tightens and rejuvenates the areas it comes into contact with. It does this by stimulating collagen growth. Collagen is a natural protein made by your body. It has many different roles, but one of them is that it helps provide strength, elasticity, and structure for your skin.
When vaginal skin comes into contact with the radiofrequency produced by our ThermiVa tool, it triggers the development of collagen. Since this treatment utilizes the body’s natural collagen production, it doesn’t require any surgical steps or any added hormones to do its job. This device is considered very safe, and can offer numerous benefits.
What Can It Help With?
Tightens the Skin of the Inner and Outer Vagina
Over time, or due to childbirth, the skin of the inner and outer vagina can lose some of its firmness. The vagina is naturally elastic and resilient. However, if you find that your vagina has not recovered its elasticity after childbirth, this kind of vaginal rejuvenation treatment may help to give it that extra bit of assistance on its path to restoration.
Age will also take a toll on the skin of the vagina. We may not be able to stop the hands of time, but we can help undo some of its effects. If you are unhappy with the laxity of your vagina, it no longer has to be something to resign yourself to. Many patients who have felt that there was nothing they could do to improve vaginal laxity have found a solution through this gentle RF treatment plan.
Offers Relief From Vaginal Dryness
This restorative treatment doesn’t only help tighten the skin, it also helps support the vagina in its normal functionality. Vaginal dryness can cause uncomfortable symptoms such as feeling itchy, or just generally sore in and around the vaginal area. It can make sex uncomfortable and thus more stressful and less enjoyable. It can also create the sensation of having to urinate more frequently.
The irritation that comes along with vaginal dryness may potentially make women more susceptible to urinary tract infections. There are so many women silently putting up with vaginal dryness, who don’t realize there is a treatment that could help them without having to resort to hormone therapy. A treatment option that can provide lasting relief from this painful condition is something we are proud to offer our patients.
May Help in Some Cases of Sexual Dysfunction
Issues such as vaginal atrophy and orgasmic dysfunction can negatively affect sexual health. Vaginal atrophy, also known as atrophic vaginitis, can be both painful and distressing. When the body’s estrogen levels decrease during or after menopause, it can sometimes cause the vaginal walls to thin, dry out, and even become inflamed.
Orgasmic dysfunction presents with difficulty or inability to reach orgasm. It can be affected by age, diabetes, the use of certain medications, or many other potential causes that aren’t always easy to determine. Regardless of the cause, it affects a large number of women who often find themselves frustrated and discouraged. If you are struggling with sexual dysfunction, this restorative treatment may be able to bring you some relief.
Can Help With Stress Incontinence
It is estimated that around one in every four women may struggle with urinary leakage. Despite it being slightly more common in older women, stress incontinence can affect women of any age. Some women who develop this issue during pregnancy may find it resolves shortly after childbirth, while others find that it has become their new normal.
Many women have to wear a pad daily to manage a leaky bladder, which not only is an inconvenience but can also cause some irritation. This treatment’s ability to improve the function of the vaginal area can result in women being able to find relief from stress incontinence. During a consultation, we will be able to assess your needs and how best to help you finally have some freedom from urinary leakage.
Can Improve the Appearance of the Vagina
As a form of self-care, women who are unhappy with the appearance of their vagina may seek out ways to improve it. A vaginal cosmetic procedure, due to its surgical nature, is much more invasive. It carries more risk factors and will involve a sometimes lengthy recovery period. Depending on what they want done, the cost of vaginal surgery can also become prohibitive for many patients.
With no incisions needed and virtually no downtime, many patients have turned to ThermiVa as an alternative to cosmetic surgery. A series of easy treatments, each session taking about 30 minutes, can offer excellent visual results. For many women intimidated at the thought of surgery, this treatment can offer them some of the results they want without having to go through a surgical procedure.
FAQ About ThermiVa
1. What Are the Alternatives?
If you have been looking into RF treatments, you may be wondering what the competition is. While that depends on what it is you are looking to have addressed, we can briefly cover some of the alternative treatments for common vaginal concerns.
Alternatives for Urinary Leakage
Other treatments for urinary leakage can include various medications or the use of a urethral insert or menstrual pads. In some cases, bladder training or pelvic floor exercises can also be helpful in reducing stress incontinence. Many women with urinary leakage prefer not to go on medication and may find the use of urethral inserts or pads inconvenient or uncomfortable. For those women, this form of RF treatment may be able to help.
Alternatives for Tightening the Skin of the Vagina
Pelvic floor exercises can potentially offer some tightening effects, but it can be discouraging for some women when they find these exercises haven’t worked for them or offered the results they were hoping for. If pelvic exercises haven’t been helpful, some surgical options are available, but they will be more invasive. The treatment we offer is so gentle, it doesn’t even require the use of an anesthetic.
Alternatives for Vaginal Dryness
Vaginal dryness can be treated with hormone therapy, but not every woman is comfortable with or a good candidate for hormone therapy. There are also some vaginal moisturizers that can offer relief for a few days at a time. One of the benefits of the RF treatments we offer is that patients can enjoy the benefits for up to 18 months after receiving treatment.
Alternatives for Cosmetic Concerns
For cosmetic concerns, energy-based treatments that utilize radiofrequency are one of the few alternatives to cosmetic surgery. While many women are thrilled with their cosmetic results, this treatment will not be able to achieve all of the different cosmetic options that surgery can offer.
During your consultation, you can let us know what your goals are and we will be able to help you determine if this treatment can offer the results you’re looking for. In many cases where the cosmetic concerns are due to loose skin, this treatment is an excellent option.
2. Does It Hurt?
This is not a painful treatment at all. During your session, you will feel a warmth comparable to a warm compress or massage. The comfort of our patients is of the highest priority to us, which is why we are pleased to offer a treatment that is much less intimidating than many of the alternatives.
If you have any concerns about the process or any sensations relating to it, we would be more than happy to talk you through it so you can have complete confidence when you come through our doors.
3. How Long Does It Take?
You can expect treatment to take around 30 minutes. In fact, with treatment being so short, some patients find they are able to fit an appointment into their lunch break. Then, they can carry on with the rest of their day as planned. Since a recovery period is usually unnecessary when it comes to this treatment, you shouldn’t have to alter your busy schedule or cancel any of your plans.
4. How Many Treatments Will I Need?
While many patients notice an immediate improvement after just one or two sessions, we recommend three separate treatments for ideal results. The treatments are scheduled in one-month intervals. While results can usually be expected to last up to 18 months, following up on your treatments each year can help you maintain your results.
5. How Quickly Will I See Results?
Noticing an immediate improvement is very common, but if you don’t notice results right away, don’t be discouraged. Each case is individual as we wait for the body to respond and produce collagen. For some patients, it can take up to three months before they really start to notice an improvement.
6. Am I a Good Candidate?
If you have concerning vaginal symptoms, it is always crucial that you rule out any serious illnesses. Once that has been done, if you are hoping to improve the comfort or appearance of your vagina, or you have symptoms that are interfering with your wellbeing, this treatment may be able to offer you relief.
Our goal is to give you amazing results that will change your life for the better. We want to help improve your uncomfortable symptoms, so you can focus on living your life with increased comfort and sense of wellbeing.
