Post-Childbirth Vaginal Issues? ThermiVa Can Help

As you age, many things can affect the way your vagina looks, feels, and lubricates. Giving birth can cause certain changes, as can entering menopause. These changes can negatively affect your sex life, causing dryness, irritation, or body image problems. If you wish your vagina looked and felt more like it did years ago, there's a way to achieve that goal!

At Brown, Pearson, & Guepet Gynecology and Urogynecology in Fairhope, Alabama, our team of providers has solutions to address sexual dysfunction and improve your sexual health without surgery or hormones. ThermiVa® treatment can restore tissue elasticity and self-lubrication ability to your vagina, as well as enhance sensitivity, giving you back your self-confidence and sex drive.

Good candidates for ThermiVa

If you have urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, trouble with orgasms, a feeling of looseness, or a sagging appearance of the labia, ThermiVa could be the answer. This gentle, safe treatment can firm up and tighten your labia and vaginal walls, and it can encourage the production of vaginal secretions while making your clitoral area more sensitive.

How ThermiVa works

The ThermiVa device emits radiofrequencies (RF) that lightly heat the tissue inside and outside the vagina. The heat is gentle and won't make you uncomfortable. It encourages the tissues to start making collagen, tightening the tissues for a younger, firmer look.  

The single-use, hand-held wand is shaped to be comfortable when inserted, and can be used to tone your vagina as well as the labia, for a tighter, more youthful appearance. More than 80% of women in one study said they felt their vaginas were tighter after RF treatment.  

ThermiVa results

ThermiVa treatments usually take only 15-30 minutes to complete, and there's no downtime afterward, so you can go back to your day. You can bathe or have sex the same day as your treatment. You may notice that your vagina looks younger, and your labia aren't as prominent. You can also experience improvement in urinary control, vaginal moisture levels, and the ability to orgasm satisfactorily. 

It can take a few weeks for the treatment results to be fully noticeable, and you may wish to schedule a short series of sessions over a three-month period for maximum improvement. We also offer Votiva, which is a similar RF treatment, with 45-minute sessions once a month over 90 days. 

ThermiVa is a painless, noninvasive way to give you the vagina you deserve. Call our office for more information or to schedule a consultation.
