Vaginal Rejuvenation: Reclaim, Restore, Revive
Millions of women suffer from vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence and lax tissue after giving birth or as a result of the aging process. This can lead to discomfort during intercourse, reduced confidence in urinary control, and a decline in overall sexual satisfaction. Moreover, despite these being very common concerns, many women are hesitant to talk about their vaginal wellness due to fear of embarrassment or assuming that there is no real solution. The truth is, our bodies are never the same after childbirth, and the natural aging process causes shifts in hormones that result in a decline in vaginal health and appearance.
We at Sadick Dermatology are here to tell you that you are not alone! Even better, we now have the technology to reverse these changes with several non-surgical options that can help tighten the vaginal tissue, increase lubrication, and help with incontinence. One of our favorite treatments is the FDA-approved ThermiVa, which uses radiofrequency energy to gently heat the vaginal tissue, which stimulates the body’s own natural rejuvenation response. Ultimately, this can lead to improved vaginal lubrication, increased tightness, and enhanced urinary control.
How Does ThermiVa work?
ThermiVa is a non-invasive, non-hormonal treatment that uses controlled radiofrequency energy to gently heat tissue, with little to no discomfort and no downtime. When heated, collagen fibrils will denature and contract, which is believed to lead to the observed tissue tightening. The hand piece width is about 0.5” and was thoughtfully designed with comfort in mind. Each treatment uses a disposable handpiece, for hygiene and cleanliness. The device can be used on both internal and external vaginal tissue.
Is ThermiVa Safe?
Over 100,000 ThermiVa treatments have been performed worldwide since 2016. Many studies have been published in peer-reviewed journals demonstrating its safety and efficacy. Benefits of a ThermiVa treatment may be noted soon after the first treatment and continue for several months afterwards. Three monthly treatments are recommended with a maintenance treatment performed once per year thereafter.
How Long Do ThermiVa Treatments Take? Is it Painful?
The ThermiVa procedure is a quick, in-office treatment that only takes between 15 – 30 minutes. Our patients tell us that the procedure is virtually painless, and it requires no anesthesia or medication. The main feeling is one of gentle warmth during the treatment itself.
There is no expected downtime for ThermiVa treatments and you can plan to return to your normal daily activities right away.
Can ThermiVa Help Tighten The Outside of the Vagina as Well as the Inside?
Yes! Thermiva can be used to help tighten the labial folds and outer vaginal opening in addition to the inner vaginal tissue. While we encourage our patients to feel confident in their natural appearance, regardless if it’s the face or the vagina, we understand that some women feel self-conscious about how things are structured “down there.” Regardless of your reasons, you can feel confident that Sadick Dermatology has the best ThermiVa in NYC.
What is the Best Age to Do ThermiVa?
ThermiVa is appropriate for adult women of all ages.
How Many ThermiVa Treatments Will I Need?
While each person’s situation is unique, we typically recommend three ThermiVa treatments, spaced one month apart for optimal results. That said, many patients report improvement after the first treatment.
What about Hair? Does ThermiVa Remove Hair from the Vaginal Area?
No, ThermiVa does not remove hair. We do offer vaginal hair removal at Sadick Dermatology, but that is a different service. To learn more about laser hair removal around the vagina, please email us here.
