According to the latest statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), vaginal rejuvenation procedures have seen a dramatic rise in popularity. Dr. Robert Young himself has seen an increase in inquiries for vaginal rejuvenation at his San Antonio plastic surgery practice. He is pleased to offer an innovative, non-surgical option for women who are bothered by lax vaginal muscles and skin. ThermiVa is a revolutionary procedure that utilizes radiofrequency energy to gently heat tissue on the internal and external areas of the vagina and labia. This process stimulates collagen to firm and tighten the vaginal skin and muscles.
In this blog post, San Antonio plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Young shares more information on ThermiVa and some of its life-changing benefits.
Decrease in Physical Discomfort
Loose, sagging skin on the labia can cause several forms of physical discomfort. The labial skin may rub against tight fitting clothing, leading to painful chafing or irritation. For this reason, exercising and other physical activities may be uncomfortable. ThermiVa tightens loose vaginal skin, making exercise more enjoyable and desirable. The tightening effects of ThermiVa can also reduce stress incontinence, which is common after childbirth.
Increased Sexual Satisfaction
Loose skin and muscles on the labial and vaginal areas can affect a woman’s sex life in several ways. Physically, the loose skin can make sexual intercourse so painful that some women choose to avoid it altogether. Psychologically, a woman can be so embarrassed by a saggy or unusually shaped labia that they may have no desire for sexual intimacy. By improving the tone and appearance of the vagina and labia, ThermiVa can help improve sexual satisfaction. Physically, sex becomes more comfortable and enjoyable, and psychologically it becomes more desirable.
It is not uncommon for women with unusually shaped labia to feel self-conscious. They may refrain from wearing tight clothing like leggings and yoga pants. In some cases, a woman may become withdrawn and avoid public settings like the beach because they are too embarrassed to wear a bathing suit or revealing clothing. Improving the physical appearance of the labia is often associated with a boost in self-confidence. Women feel more confident about their most intimate area, giving them the confidence they need to wear the clothing they want and participate in social events.
Additional Benefits of ThermiVa
Treatment with ThermiVa is quick; it can typically be completed in approximately 30 minutes. ThermiVa requires no surgery, incisions or downtime. Side effects are minor and include swelling, redness and discomfort, all of which typically subside within a few days after treatment.
