While it may not be something you think about on a daily basis, your vaginal health is incredibly important. There are a lot of factors that can affect your vaginal health and cause a number of unwanted changes. Two of the most common factors are aging and pregnancy.
As we age, our tissues slowly lose their strength and elasticity. This can lead to the development of vaginal laxity. Vaginal laxity is a feeling of looseness in the vagina. Women who have given birth may also develop vaginal laxity at an earlier age. This is due to the stress that the vaginal tissues are placed under during childbirth.
Some women may notice that tampons no longer stay in place throughout the day due to vaginal laxity, and other may simply feel uncomfortable down there. Vaginal looseness can also have a serious negative impact on your sex life. Some women may notice a decrease in sensation during intercourse. Others may find intercourse uncomfortable or no longer satisfying. Their partners may also notice that intercourse no longer feels the same.
Other potential vaginal health issues include incontinence, which is the inability to hold in urine. Some women may experience leakage throughout the day for unknown reasons. Other women may suffer from stress incontinence, which can cause them to experience leakage when they laugh, sneeze, cough, or run.
While these problems can be embarrassing and difficult to talk about, you can address these issues by undergoing vaginal-rejuvenation treatments.
What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal-rejuvenation treatments offer a way to address multiple vaginal health concerns that have occurred as a result of the aging process or due to childbirth. There are several different options for vaginal rejuvenation out there.
At Bayview Plastic Surgery, we offer vulvo-vaginal-rejuvenation treatments using ThermiVa, a highly effective treatment that is both comfortable and highly effective.
What Can ThermiVa Do for Me?
ThermiVa is a non-surgical vulvo-vaginal rejuvenation procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to gently heat the tissue so that women can reclaim, restore, and revive feminine wellness without discomfort and downtime.
The reason why radiofrequency energy is so effective is because it can stimulate the production of collagen and elastic fibers in the vaginal tissue. This provides two important benefits. Collagen strengthens and tightens the vaginal tissues, which will help to reduce the likelihood of experiencing incontinence. It will also help to increase sexual stimulation and satisfaction for both you and your partner.
The increase in elastic fibers will ensure that the rejuvenated vaginal tissues will not become stretched and weak when placed under stress. That means that the results provided by ThermiVa will be long-lasting.
ThermiVa treatment improves vulvar and vaginal laxity and vaginal dryness as well as reducing urinary leaking and urgency. It can also improve orgasmic dysfunction. Each ThermiVa appointment typically takes about 30 minutes, and you can immediately return to your normal daily routine, including sexual activity, without the need for a lengthy recovery period.
It is important that you know that it will take several treatment sessions to provide the results that you desire. Complete ThermiVa treatment includes three separate treatments over a period of three months. Our team at Bayview Plastic Surgery can help work with you to figure out a treatment schedule that works for you.
After your treatment is complete, your results should last for around one year. You can maintain your results by undergoing additional maintenance treatments. The expectation is that women will need one treatment per year as maintenance.
