Why You Should Consider ThermiVa Vaginal Rejuvenation?
ThermiVa in San Diego is more than just a vaginal rejuvenation technology that can effectively address numerous vulvovaginal health problems. By using therapeutic levels of controlled radio-frequency heat, ThermiVa offers women the ability to tighten internal and external vaginal areas, reduce vaginal dryness, improve her ability to enjoy sexual activity and prevent mild to moderate symptoms of urinary leakage due to stress incontinence.
What is Radiofrequency Thermal Heat?
Radiofrequency energy is derived from electromagnetic wave frequencies existing anywhere between 3 kHz to 300 GHz. When radio-frequency (RF) energy is used to treat damaged human tissues, the heat generated by RF energy tightens tissues, stimulates collagen production, promotes blood flow to the treated area and even breaks down adipose (fat) cells in some cases. Radiofrequency therapy is also routinely employed to smooth away facial wrinkles, enhance skin health and increase delivery of oxygen-rich blood to the skin for supporting the ability of skin to naturally regenerate itself.
ThermiVa’s RF technology induces collagen contraction via biochemical and mechanical pathways. As RF energy is delivered deeply into vulvovaginal tissues, collagen remodeling (growth of new collagen matrix) occurs when tissues react by initiating a wound healing response. Collagen remodeling also gives women the kind of desirable tissue tightening they want when they suffer from lax vulvovaginal tissues, stress incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse.
Why Would I Want ThermiVa Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Thousands of women are opting for ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation to improve or relieve one or more of the following conditions without undergoing surgery:
Vaginal childbirth and menopause are the main reason women suffer vulvovaginal laxity. Birth canal tissues are so dramatically stretched during childbirth that they rarely resume their normal shape. Estrogen levels during menopause fall rapidly, causing vulvovaginal tissues and skin to become thinner and less firm. Consequently, women diagnosed with vulvovaginal laxity experience decreased vaginal sensitivity and only nominal sexual satisfaction. Vulvovaginal laxity also contributes to stress incontinence and a further reduced quality of life.
Without the need for incisions or anesthesia, ThermiVa can tighten interior and exterior vaginal tissues and minimize labial tissue “sag” that prevents many women from wearing form-fitting pants. ThermiVa patients will also enjoy smoother, softer skin due to collagen remodeling and enhanced blood flow to the area.
Vulvovaginal Dryness and Atrophy
During per-menopause and menopause, estrogen loss leaves a woman’s vulva tissues and the vagina lining thinner, less elastic and drier than it was in her younger years. Doctors call this condition “vulvovaginal atrophy”, or a marked reduction in vaginal secretions. Because vaginal dryness usually makes intercourse uncomfortable and even painful, women suffering vulvovaginal atrophy may lose interest in having sex with their partner, which can lead to marriage/relationship issues. In addition, vaginal dryness interferes with the healthy functioning of the urinary system and may sometimes cause recurring vaginitis or urinary tract infections. Symptoms of vulvovaginal atrophy include burning, itching labial irritation when these symptoms cannot be attributed to other medical conditions.
ThermiVa promotes the production of vulvovaginal moisture and lubrication by stimulating collagen production and increasing oxygenated blood flow to tissues. For women who cannot or do not want estrogen therapy to replace lost estrogen, ThermiVa offers the perfect, safe and effective solution to relieving vulvovaginal atrophy and dryness.
Stress Incontinence Due to Childbirth, Menopause or Weak Pelvic Floor Muscles
Signs of stress incontinence involve leakage of small amounts of urine when sneezing, coughing, lifting objects, laughing or running. Although stress incontinence is not a serious medical condition, it can be embarrassing, uncomfortable and inconvenient for active women. In addition, urinary leakage during sexual intercourse is estimated to affect nearly 40 percent of women visiting their gynecologist for sexual dysfunction treatments.
Estrogen loss starting in per menopause will cause thinning of the urethra lining. The urethra is the tube that allows urine to pass out of the body. Without a full, healthy lining, the urethra is unable to prevent urine from dribbling out of the body when pelvic muscles are stressed (coughing, sneezing, etc.). In addition, a woman’s pelvic muscles tend to lose strength with age, a condition called pelvic relaxation.
Receiving ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation in San Diego effectively tightens interior vaginal tissue linings associated with the urethra to help reduce incidences of stress urinary incontinence and leakage during intercourse. ThermiVa reduces the outer and inner diameters of your vagina to leave you with a smaller opening and enhanced muscle control.
Vulvovaginal laxity and/or vaginal atrophy can decrease genital sensitivity and make it difficult for a woman to achieve sexual satisfaction. ThermiVa’s RF technology delivers therapeutic heat into impaired tissues to induce collagen modeling, tighten tissues and increase sensitivity for stronger, more coordinated muscular contractions and a more enjoyable sex life.
