Excessive stretching of the vaginal muscles is a common occurrence after vaginal birth or simply due to aging.
Damage of the vaginal tissue can lead to incontinence, pain or diminished sensation during sexual activity. This change of sensation can increase dissatisfaction during sexual activity and can change the relationship between partners. Laxity of the vaginal tissue is caused by numerous factors most importantly is a decrease in estrogen.
THERMIva® treatments use radio-frequency energy to gently heat internal and external tissue to restore the vaginal elasticity and revive the vaginal tissue. The benefits of using radiofrequency on the vaginal tissue is that women will experience an immediate increase in cellular healing without creating discomfort or downtime. When the vaginal tissue is heated, collagen fibrils (cells) will denature and contract, which is believed to lead to the observed tissue tightening. Essentially, each treatment intentionally “damages” the tissue, which increases blood flow and circulation, to encourage the tissue to regenerate and heal naturally.
