As women age, their bodies often undergo a number of changes. Childbirth, weight fluctuations, and the general aging process can all cause a variety of side effects in intimate areas. While labiaplasty can effectively reduce the size of the labia minora and decrease skin irritation to correct many of these concerns, patients can now choose the non-surgical procedure ThermiVa® as a non-invasive treatment option. Using a thin, temperature-controlled handpiece, Dr. Steven Yarinsky and his staff direct radiofrequency energy to gently heat and massage the target areas to restore collagen and address problems such as after-childbirth loose or weakened tissue of the vagina, vulva, or labia; restore lubrication and tightness in the vaginal canal; and help correct mild to moderate stress incontinence. ThermiVa® can also help to significantly improve sexual satisfaction for many women. In addition ThermiVa® can effectively treat dryness and discomfort typically seen after menopause and post hormone therapy for breast cancer.
ThermiVa® is considered a “lunchtime” procedure, as it can typically be completed in 30 minutes and has absolutely no downtime. Three monthly treatments are recommended to reach a “plateau” to obtain best results. Patients can return to their normal activities including having sexual relations immediately after each session, and they can experience gradual improvement in skin and vaginal tone and texture and in their symptoms of vaginal dryness, pain and stress incontinence over the course of a few months. Results can last up to one year, and follow-up treatments can be scheduled to maintain this improvement.
What Our ThermiVa® Patients Have To Say
“I am more than pleased with my ThermiVa results. I did lots of reading and research about the procedure first, then Dr. Yarinsky explained the simple procedure so I figured I had to try. I had a dwindling libido, changes like dryness and not feeling as excited about sex with my partner… I feel like I did in my 30’s and I would recommend this anyone even if they are only having minor changes as its seems like you have nothing to lose but reversing age-related changes. I’m very happy with the ThermiVa treatments as well as Dr. Yarinsky, Holly, and of course Janet made me feel very comfortable.”
Since ThermiVa® received FDA clearance in 2013, over 85,000 procedures have been performed around the world. In a recent study assessing the results from ThermiVa®, 78 percent of the participants—who underwent a series of three treatments—reported being either satisfied or very satisfied with their treatment outcome. Significant improvement was achieved in atrophic vaginitis (causing pain and dryness seen with aging and after hormone therapy for treating breast cancer), sexual satisfaction, and vulvovaginal laxity (looseness seen after childbirth). For more details about the data collected from this study, take a look at the article below.
