Your Sexual Health Matters: ThermiVA Delivers Vaginal Tightening Without Surgery

Your Sexual Health Matters: ThermiVA Delivers Vaginal Tightening Without Surgery

Multiple pregnancies, hormonal imbalances associated with menopause, decreased circulation, and other conditions affecting your vaginal health can also impact your sexual comfort and satisfaction. In the past, women were expected to live with these issues as a natural part of aging.  

Fortunately, at The Wellness Restoration Center in New York, New York our Marcia Harris, MD, LHD, and her team offer a better solution — ThermiVa® treatment therapy for vaginal revitalization. 

How does aging affect vaginal and sexual health?

Tissue changes associated with menopause and declining estrogen levels cause vaginal dryness and loss of normal lubrication during sexual intercourse. This can lead to cracking and itching of the tissue lining the vaginal canal and discomfort during intimacy.

Hormonal changes and multiple pregnancies, or even one difficult vaginal birth, can cause vaginal walls to stretch and become thinner. As the vaginal tissue loosens, the skin folds surrounding the vaginal opening (labia minora) and enclosing the external genitalia (labia majora) can also sag and droop.

Along with the noticeable aesthetic changes that may decrease your confidence, vaginal changes can interfere with wearing certain clothing and increase your risk of skin infections. Changes associated with aging vaginal tissue can also cause mild to moderate urine leakage (incontinence).    

How does ThermiVa help revitalize vaginal tissue?

The ThermiVa system uses physician-controlled radiofrequency energy to heat and tighten vaginal tissue gently. The energy is delivered via a handpiece shaped to fit the contours of your internal and external genitalia. 

The heat generated by ThermiVa tightens the targeted skin and prompts natural collagen production. Collagen is a protein your body produces and uses to rebuild healthy tissue. In some cases, ThermiVa treatments may also help control mild to moderate urinary incontinence.

The skin tightening effects of ThermiVa are immediately apparent. You can also expect continued improvement for several weeks after a session as increased collagen continues to revitalize vaginal tissues.

Depending on your circumstances, you may choose to treat the vaginal canal, the labia, or both during a ThermiVa session. Your Dr. Harris at The Wellness Restoration Center discusses your options in detail before scheduling your treatment.

How long does recovery take after a ThermiVa session?

There is no downtime following a ThermiVa session. The treatments are painless and completed here at The Wellness Restoration Center with your convenience in mind. You can return to your regular daily routine immediately after leaving the office.
