Increasingly, women are learning that there is something that can be done for their “female problems.” The number of procedures is increasing yearly, as women seek relief from symptoms of dryness, laxity, decreased libido, and urinary stress incontinence. Women are becoming more vocal about their issues, although there are many who still keep it to themselves because they are embarrassed to acknowledge the changes they are experiencing.
The loosening of the pelvic tissues is caused by an increase in tissue stretch due to aging, hormonal changes, and vaginal delivery. In fact, all women who have given birth vaginally experience stretching of their vaginal tissues; however, there are also many women having problems who have never delivered children.
ThermiVa treatments can tighten and tone sagging, loose, and excess tissues in the vaginal and labial areas. This radio-frequency-based device is used to tighten the structures in the pelvic area, including the pelvic floor. The treatment can also help to reduce or eliminate urinary incontinence.
The treatments, usually three in number, are minimally invasive and have no down-time. There is no surgery, no incisions, no sutures, and takes about a half an hour per treatment session. There is no discomfort, just a feeling of warmth. No bruising or redness is expected. Patients can immediately go about their regular daily activities. Some people notice a very quick improvement in their symptoms, even within days to weeks.
The ThermiVa treatment uses radio-frequency waves. It is very different from laser treatments to the area. With ThermiVa, both internal and external structures can be tightened. There is no wounding or need for recovery time. There is no need for pain medications or antibiotics.
How does ThermiVa work?
ThermiVa treatments use temperature-controlled radio-frequency energy to gently heat tissues. The device allows precise monitoring of the treatment area, to prevent over- or under- treatment of the areas. The ThermiVa treatments deliver controlled thermal energy to the desired areas, using the same technology that has been used for years to reduce the effects of facial aging. The complete ThermiVa procedure includes three separate treatments over a period of three months. The procedures are performed in the office setting.
The best way to understand what these treatments can do is to hear from those who have had the treatments themselves:
“I am so relieved that now I have something I know can help me with my personal and intimate needs. This is definitely a life-changer that needs to get out to the world!” Patient A12
“I threw away my pads!” Patient J.K.
“I did not tell my husband that I was getting it done. But he noticed that I was initiating intimacy more often. He finally just flat out asked what was going on. He is not so grumpy now.” Patient D112

This is a very interesting article (click on the link below), which highlights the things that Dr. Obagi has been saying for years. We are trying to normalize the skin’s function, not just “cover up” things on your skin. Prescription-strength tretinoins and very strong retinols are doing the work of improving your skin. Bleachers help lighten pigment. These are the basis of ZO and OBAGI skin care, and all you have to do is use the products to see the difference in your own skin!

We have been using the Thermigen radio-frequency technology now for about 2 years in our office, and have been very impressed with the results we have seen, including treating excess skin of the arms, abdomen, knees, and neck. We are also using this minimally-invasive technique for feminine rejuvenation, with great results. More uses for this technology continue to emerge, however, and we are continuing to follow their results and are considering adopting them. Please watch this link for more information, and come to see us if you have questions!
