A woman’s body changes dramatically over the course of a lifetime. Puberty, hormonal fluctuations, pregnancy, and menopause can cause intimate changes that leave women feeling embarrassed or self-conscious about their sexual or reproductive health. Additionally, because of the changes in the skin and body, women might notice that their vaginal area has slowly lost its youthful appearance and issues such as leakage begin to occur when coughing or sneezing. Known as stress urinary incontinence, or SUI, this condition can be addressed with certain treatments available at Skin MD and Beyond, including the Thermiva nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation solution.
What is Thermiva?
Dr. Fiona Wright of Skin MD and Beyond describes Thermiva as a specialized treatment that is approved by the FDA for vaginal rejuvenation. It uses RF (radiofrequency) heat energy to stimulate collagen production in the soft tissues and skin, firming the area and reducing certain symptoms and issues women might be experiencing, including, but not limited to:
- Stress urinary incontinence
- Sagging or enlarged labial skin and tissue
- Relaxed vaginal tissues
- Reduced sexual drive and satisfaction
- Pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse
- Vaginal dryness
Many women turn to Dr. Fiona Wright to talk about their sexual health concerns and find that Thermiva may provide them with the results they desire.
What should I expect from treatment?
First, patients will want to speak to Dr. Fiona Wright about the specific concerns they have with their vaginal health and be open about conditions such as stress urinary incontinence. Then, women can have their procedure done right in the office. Just like a gynecological examination, patients lie on the treatment table and the Thermiva wand is inserted into the vagina. It can also be used on the external vulvar area as well. The device emits the radiofrequency energy into the tissues to stimulate the formation of new blood vessels and collagen, strengthening the vaginal structures. There is no pain, no anesthesia, and no downtime or recovery with Thermiva services.
