Many women in Kansas City suffer from vaginal laxity, dryness, and genital irritation following childbirth or as they progress through the stages of menopause. These conditions can range from being slightly annoying to being a major barrier to enjoying a satisfying quality of life, particularly sexually.
Women can now address these problems through a revolutionary vaginal rejuvenation therapy called ThermiVA® which is now available at Hormone Hair and Vein Center in Kansas City. This non-surgical painless therapy can rejuvenate the vaginal canal and external tissue in just three short sessions, scheduled at monthly intervals, with no side effects or recovery time needed.
Now there is no need to simply be resolved to living with issues of dryness, lack of libido or painful intercourse, urinary stress incontinence, and emotional stress. With ThermiVA® treatments, women can expect to experience feminine rejuvenation, unlike anything they thought would be possible going forward with their lives. Most patients say they feel like a new woman after treatment, many enjoying better sexual satisfaction than ever before.
ThermiVA® is especially helpful to women who have lost vaginal moisture due to hormone deficiency and cannot use estrogen due to previous breast cancer.
How does ThermiVA® vaginal rejuvenation work?
ThermiVA® is our top Kansas City vaginal tightening therapy which uses gentle radiofrequency energy to stimulate the production of collagen. It also is used to shrink stretched tissues of the external labia and tighten the vagina. The special device directs heat deep into tissues to encourage the natural production of collagen which restores tone to the vagina and also relieves bladder leakage caused by lax muscle tone around the urethra.
This treatment stimulates the internal structures which create moisture within the vagina relieving one of the most common complaints of older women; vaginal dryness. This lack of lubrication results in painful intercourse which is emotionally stressful for both women and their partners. This treatment is new to Kansas City; women are only now beginning to learn about the many benefits of this remarkable feminine rejuvenation treatment.
What happens during treatment?
The ThermiVA® device regulates the amount of heat delivered by the slightly curved thin electrode. It is specially designed for use in and around the vagina and is about the width of an index finger. It arrives in a sterile package and is not used on other patients so there is no possibility of infection.
There is no pain with this treatment so once the patient is placed in a comfortable position, similar to the position of a normal gynecological exam, treatment begins. The electrode is passed over the external labial tissue at first, with the temperature gradually increased to ensure the patient is not startled. The heat generated is never too hot; most patients find the level similar to a hot stone massage treatment.
The probe is then introduced into the vagina where the heat is directed all around, tightening tissues and stimulating the glands that naturally lubricate the vagina. Total treatment time is about 30 minutes and once it is completed, patients can go about their usual activities including intercourse.
Over the course of the following months, the effects continue to improve. At Hormone Hair and Vein Center our patients report ever increasing levels of satisfaction at each treatment session as the collagen continues to build. As the initial provider of ThermiVA® in Kansas City, we are delighted to see the therapy produce better than expected results in our delighted patients.
