As the years go by, a woman’s body changes significantly. Between menstruation, childbirth, and menopause, the vagina and nearby tissues undergo numerous shifts that can lead to conditions such as atrophic vaginitis, urinary incontinence, and different manifestations of sexual dysfunction. For some women, addressing these common conditions with doctors can be challenging due to their formerly “taboo” nature. However, vaginal rejuvenation procedures and products are increasing in popularity in the medical industry worldwide!
The rise of feminine rejuvenation stems from the application of energy-based modalities to vaginal tissue in the same fashion as has been done in aesthetic medicine. The thermal effect activates healing factors, causing increased blood flow and collagen in the vaginal area. Intuitively, the ability to deliver more energy will cause a more profound effect. Directed energy does not induce pain in the vaginal wall as readily as it does in facial skin, making energy-based therapies more tolerable at higher energies. At Total Health & Wellness, our team of knowledgeable providers offer ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation.
ThermiVa is a device for performing transcutaneous temperature-controlled radiofrequency therapy (TTCRF) at the vulvovaginal region. Radiofrequency (RF) technology has been used successfully in aesthetic medicine, along with lasers, for rejuvenation or tightening of skin at the face, neck, chest, and other body parts. Recent studies have shown its utility for vulvar and vaginal use as well. RF is safe, non-invasive, and effective—especially when used on naturally well-hydrated tissue. As the RF electrode passes current through the skin, resistance creates heat, causing the therapeutic damage necessary for rejuvenation to take place: denaturation and contraction of collagen, activation of fibroblasts, increased blood flow, and neocollagenesis occur.
ThermiVa employs a slim, S-shaped treatment probe designed specifically for the task, with a postage stamp-sized RF emitter on the tip. Feedback mechanisms on the probe include thermistors and thermocouples that provide tissue temperature information to the device itself, which modulates power output so that scientifically determined temperature targets (40–45 °C) are safely and rapidly met but not exceeded, preventing overtreatment.
Sexual Health is Just the Start
ThermiVa treatments can give you a natural boost in sexual desire. After vaginal rejuvenation at Dr. Roz MD, you will have increased natural lubrication within the vagina, and there will be a strengthening of the vaginal tissue and its laxity. These are everlasting results and will give you the confidence and satisfaction you want and need when it comes to vaginal health and sexual desire. Our vaginal rejuvenation technique using ThermiVa at our office in Dayton, Ohio, offers the latest innovations to restore your confidence.
Vaginal rejuvenation with ThermiVa does not involve harsh side effects or complications. You can resume your daily activities and work, including sexual intercourse, soon after the procedure. The results will gradually appear after a few days, with continued improvements for a few weeks. Most patients receive three treatments for optimal results.
