ThermiVa® Vaginal Rejuvenation
As women age, their bodies often undergo a number of changes. Childbirth, weight fluctuations, and the general aging process with decrease of your body’s natural estrogen levels can all cause a variety of symptoms and side effects in your vagina and the surrounding skin. Women who are taking anti-estrogen medication for breast cancer treatment often experience similar vaginal changes and discomfort. While labiaplasty can effectively reduce the size of the labia minora, tighten the vaginal opening 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.
Saratoga Springs Plastic Surgery, PC is the only office located within 100 miles of Albany, New York to provide ThermiVa feminine rejuvenation services. Using a thin, temperature-controlled handpiece, Dr. Steven Yarinsky and his staff direct ThermiVa’s radiofrequency energy to gently heat the target areas to restore collagen, improve muscular function, increase blood circulation and promote sensory nerve regeneration in the vagina and clitoris. The results correct problems such as after-childbirth loose or weakened tissue and muscles of the vagina; loose skin of the vulva or labia; pain and loss of lubrication and tightness in the vaginal canal; diminished sensation; and also helps to correct mild to moderate urinary stress incontinence which occurs with laughing, coughing or sneezing. The skin of the labia majora (outer lips) and labia majora tightens. ThermiVa can also significantly improve sexual satisfaction for many women by virtue of enhancing the sensory nerve supply to the area. In addition ThermiVa® can effectively treat dryness and discomfort typically seen after menopause and post anti-estrogen hormone therapy for breast cancer since natural vaginal lubrication is restored.
ThermiVa is a painless “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 typically experience gradual improvement in skin, muscle and vaginal tone and texture and improvement of their symptoms of vaginal dryness, pain and stress incontinence over the course of a few months. Results of the recommend three monthly treatments can last up to one year, and follow-up single treatments are often done every 8-12 months 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.
Does ThermiVa Work? Yes!
ThermiVa received FDA clearance in 2013, and has since helped hundreds of thousands of women improve their vaginal function and appearance. Since 2016, alone, over 115,000 ThermiVa procedures have been performed around the world. In 2019 RealSelf announced ThermiVa was named a “Most Worth It” procedure, a recognition that is earned through RealSelf.com’s consumer satisfaction scores. 86 percent of women treated rated the results “worth it.” ThermiVa was one of only 53 aesthetic procedures out of the 500+ available on RealSelf that was honored with this status in 2019.
In a recent study assessing the results from ThermiVa®, 78 percent of the participants—who had the recommended three initial monthly 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). Women treated with ThermiVa also reported increased libido and greater ability to reach orgasm, sexual satisfaction and improvement in symptoms related to stress incontinence.
