Who is a Good Candidate for ThermiVa?
Everyone from the Kardashians to “The Doctors” is talking about ThermiVa, the revolutionary feminine rejuvenation treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to tighten the internal and external vaginal area. The best part? No surgery required! But who is a good candidate for ThermiVa, and who should opt for surgery instead? Here is an overview of the procedure to help you get started before you come in for your consultation.
To Thermi, or Not to Thermi: Who is a Good Candidate for ThermiVa?
Non-surgical feminine rejuvenation is an exciting concept that can help many women avoid vaginal surgery and labiaplasty, but not everyone is a good candidate for this surgical alternative. For example, patients with severe bladder prolapse are not likely to benefit from a series of ThermiVa treatments; those patients would fare better with a surgical solution with a urogynecologist. Some forms of incontinence also would need to be treated with surgery and not ThermiVa. So who is a good candidate for ThermiVa?
ThermiVa for Incontinence
Some patients with incontinence related to childbirth or simply due to the normal aging process will benefit greatly from a series of ThermiVa treatments. The radiofrequency technology increases collagen production to strengthen and tighten the skin and muscles, giving women more control.
A Long-Term Treatment for Vaginal Dryness
If you’re suffering with vaginal dryness and you’re tired of using personal lubricants (or the lubricants don’t work for you anymore), then ThermiVa can help. One of the wonderful benefits of internal vaginal tightening with radiofrequency technology is the increase in vaginal moisture that provides patients with improved comfort and increased sexual pleasure.
End the Constant Treatment for Vaginal Itching and Frequent Infections With Over-the-Counter Remedies
Are frequent infections and itching the bane of your existence? While these maladies have many causes, a loose labia or incontinence could also be partially to blame. Loose labial skin traps moisture and bacteria, allowing infections to grow and spread; incontinence also keeps the area exposed to irritating urine that can cause frequent infections and intense itching. By treating these with ThermiVa, you can reduce or eliminate the need for topical steroids, anti-fungal creams, and antibiotics.
ThermiVa for Prolapse: Solution for Mild Bladder or Rectal Prolapse
As the internal walls of the vagina lose laxity and structure, the bladder and/or rectum may begin to fall into the vagina. This is known as prolapse and can affect a patient’s quality of life, making it difficult to completely void in the restroom. This can lead to discomfort and infections. If left untreated, prolapse can become worse until surgery is the only way to correct it. If caught early enough, ThermiVa can help strengthen the vaginal wall that has lost its structural integrity, pushing everything back into place.
A Non-Surgical Feminine Sexual Dysfunction Treatment
The more we openly talk about female sexuality, the more women are learning what options are available to treat feminine sexual dysfunction. For some women, sexual pleasure has always been elusive; for others, childbirth and aging have made intercourse uncomfortable or even painful. With ThermiVa vaginal tightening, sexual pleasure can be restored or even enhanced.
