It is an undisputed fact that as we women age, our bodies change. Tissue laxity is one of the most common complaints, but when this occurs in our most private area, it is rarely open for discussion, even with our long-time partner. Excessive relaxation of the vaginal muscles, triggered by childbirth, illness, trauma, genetics, and the normal aging process, can be devastating, and can result in diminished sexual sensation for both partners. This will ultimately impact a woman’s self-worth and self-esteem.
ThermiVa is an exciting, innovative treatment available in Santa Rosa, at Plastic Surgery Associates. Generating radiofrequency waves to gently heat tissues, this one-of-a-kind procedure is the only safe, noninvasive way to improve the tone of the vaginal walls, as well as the shape of the labia. Without surgery, incisions, or lasers, ThermiVa can improve the most delicate and intimate part of a woman’s body. ThermiVa takes only minutes in the office, requires no ‘night off’ from sexual activity, and can provide immediately noticeable results.
ThermiVa Will Help Improve:
- Vaginal laxity
- Vaginal dryness
- Difficulty reaching orgasm
- Stress induced urinary incontinence
- Aesthetic appearance of the labia majora
ThermiVa in Napa and Sonoma Valley:
While many women will experience a loss of vaginal muscle tone at some point in their lives, not everyone will be ready for the expense, discomfort, or the extended recovery associated with rejuvenation surgery. However, ThermiVa provides an excellent, non-invasive option for women, applying heat to vaginal tissues to promote collagen remodeling. As the structural support columns in the vaginal walls are strengthened, the physical integrity of the skin is dramatically improved.
ThermiVa allows women to take back control of their body and their vagina. No more struggling unsuccessfully with lubricants, as ThermiVa decreases the vaginal dryness that occurs during menopause. Stretched, unattractive vaginal ‘lips’ can be restored to their pre-baby appearance with ThermiVa. As the collagen stores are rebuilt, the labia majora and labia minora have their shape transformed. Additionally, the urinary incontinence that sometimes occurs with lax vaginal tissues will quickly resolve with the ThermiVa procedure; no more peeing when sneezing. Sexual experiences can be revived and enhanced with just one ThermiVa treatment.
Your ThermiVa Consultation:
Prior to scheduling a ThermiVa treatment, women are encouraged to speak with Dr. Furnas or Dr. Canales during a complimentary consultation appointment. This provides a one-on-one time for the surgeon and patient to get to know one another. After a discussion of both short-term and long-term goals, a quick physical exam will be performed. Then Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas will explain all of the options for vaginal rejuvenation, including the ThermiVa treatment. Should ThermiVa be determined to be the best option for you, a treatment plan will established with your unique goals in mind.
The Ideal ThermiVa Candidate:
Women who are troubled with loosening vaginal walls can find benefit in the ThermiVa procedure. Patients of all ages and ethnicities can see an improvement in the elasticity of tissues, dryness associated with menopause, and incontinence due to lax vaginal muscles. An ideal ThermiVa candidate will be in overall good health. She will understand the procedure and the necessary maintenance treatments, as well as hold realistic expectations for the final vaginal rejuvenation results. At your Napa Valley consultation appointment, Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas will help to determine if ThermiVa is the correct procedure for your body.
The ThermiVa Procedure:
ThermiVa is a noninvasive procedure, performed in one of Plastic Surgery Associates’ comfortable, private treatment rooms. Depending on the extent of treatment, each session will take from 15-30 minutes. Initially, three treatments are recommended, at an interval of four to six weeks in between.
Once comfortable in the treatment room, the provider will place a small, handheld device on each of the treatment zones for three to five minutes. This includes the left and right labia majora, or the ventral, dorsal, left, and right surfaces of the vaginal walls. Most women report the ThermiVa treatment as completely comfortable. On the rare occasion, patients note some extreme warm in the vaginal tissues, although this resolves quickly at the end of a procedure.
Recovery after ThermiVa:
No downtime is required after the ThermiVa treatment. Patients are back to their normal routine that same afternoon. Sexual activity can be resumed immediately, as well. Women may see visible results after the first ThermiVa treatment. However, over the next several months, as the collagen rebuilds within the vaginal muscles, the full benefits of ThermiVa will be experienced. The complete vaginal rejuvenation can last for nine to twelve months, sometimes longer. To maintain the results from ThermiVa, it is important that women have an additional touch-up session once or twice a year.
