Vaginal revitalization is a procedure for aging women or women who have gone through childbirth and have noticed changes in their sexual functioning. The treatment helps repair and restore the tissue in your vulva and vagina to become tighter and healthier, improving some of the complications that come with major hormone fluctuations and body changes.
Vaginal revitalization treatments are noninvasive and can make a big difference for your confidence and your intimate relationships. Before you undergo vaginal revitalization, you should attend a consultation at Women’s Healthcare Consultants of Gwinnett to discuss your needs and goals. The team helps you decide if you’re a good candidate for vaginal revitalization and if it can help improve the symptoms you describe.
At Women’s Healthcare Consultants of Gwinnett, a fellowship-trained pelvic surgeon uses ThermiVa® for vaginal revitalization. The ThermiVa device delivers radiofrequency energy to the tissues of your skin and inside your vaginal canal with a comfortable, form-fitting handpiece. The radiofrequency heats your tissues to stimulate collagen production within your tissues.
Collagen is a structural protein in your skin and body tissues that helps keep them firm and tight. You lose a significant amount of collagen as you age, causing your skin and tissues to loosen and become less firm. ThermiVa vaginal revitalization treatments help rebuild a collagen network and promote better blood flow in the region. The treatment involves no downtime and few risks.
For more severe complications, the team might recommend surgical options for vaginal revitalization.
Vaginal revitalization treatments can benefit you and your sexual health in a number of ways. They can treat many common complications associated with bodily changes including natural aging, menopause, and childbirth. You should consider vaginal revitalization if you experience:
Vaginal dryness is a symptom that often appears during menopause and is associated with low estrogen. It can lead to uncomfortable sex and a higher risk for vaginal infections.
Vaginal atrophy happens when your vaginal walls become dryer and weaker because of a lack of estrogen. It can also cause painful inflammation and urinary symptoms, like burning sensations and urinary tract infections.
Urinary incontinence causes you to leak urine when you don’t intend to. It often happens when you cough, sneeze, or laugh because of weak muscles in the region.
Pelvic prolapse is a condition involving your pelvic floor, which keeps your pelvic organs suspended and in place. Pelvic prolapse causes your bladder, uterus, urethra, or other structures in the region to droop and leads to pelvic or back pain.
