Vaginal Rejuvenation with ThermiVa™
Many women experience both aesthetic and functional concerns affecting tissues in vaginal areas. These conditions are very common, and can often occur due to the natural process of aging, childbirth, heredity, weight loss, or other factors. Changes in labial and vaginal tissues can ultimately cause physical discomfort, self-consciousness with one’s appearance, and an overall effect on one’s quality of life. Fortunately, our plastic surgeon at Teleos Plastic Surgery offers a non-surgical procedure that can help you improve the look, function, and sensation of tissues in the vaginal area.
ThermiVa™ is a state-of-the-art treatment that harnesses the energy of radiofrequency waves to improve functional and cosmetic vaginal concerns. Irritation, dryness, and even mild cases of enlarged labial/vaginal tissue and orgasmic dysfunction can be addressed with this procedure. ThermiVa™ does not require shots or surgery and generally takes about 15-30 minutes to complete. Most patients do not require recovery time and can continue normal daily routines immediately after treatment. A series of three treatments is often recommended for the best results. We can talk with you about ThermiVa™ during your initial consultation and determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.
ThermiVa™ is helpful to women who have received chemotherapy. Many of our breast cancer patients may find vaginal dryness or atrophic vaginitis to be quite uncomfortable. ThermiVa™ may assist with this side effect of cancer treatments by its neovascularization (bringing new blood vessels to the treated area and improving the blood flow to these tissues).
Three ThermiVa™ treatments are usually necessary to achieve the best possible results and the effects often last between 9-12 months. Results can typically be maintained with “maintenance” treatments every 6 months to one year after the initial set of three treatments.
