At Carr Dermatology, we are committed to helping our patients enjoy a better quality of life through innovative treatments. We are proud to bring the women of Sugar Land, TX and nearby communities the latest breakthrough in nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment. ThermiVa is a safe and gentle procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to rejuvenate damaged tissues without downtime or pain.
About vaginal rejuvenation
Childbirth, the effects of age, and other factors can weaken or damage vaginal tissues. As a result, many women experience pain, discomfort, or self-consciousness in intimate situations. Until recently, there was little that could be done aside from surgery. Fortunately, ever-advancing noninvasive technology has provided us with a gentle and effective solution. Rejuvenation treatment stimulates production and remodeling of collagen, restoring youthful firmness and resilience to tissue.
We choose ThermiVa technology for several reasons.
- The procedure is nonsurgical and painless
- There is no downtime
- A session usually takes less than an hour, making it especially convenient
- ThermiVa has dual benefits, stimulating collagen production and tightening tissues
What are the benefits of ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation?
Our sexual lives are an important part of being human, and aging doesn’t need to have such a negative impact on this part of life. ThermiVa uses gentle radiofrequency energy to heat vaginal tissues and reverse some of the effects of aging. The vaginal rejuvenation created by ThermiVa does the following:
- Improves laxity of the labia and vagina
- Improves sexual pleasure
- Improves vaginal dryness
- Improves mild to moderate urinary incontinence and urgency
- Improves urinary incontinence
Who is a good candidate for ThermiVa?
As we get older, our bodies change and this can impact our sex lives. If you feel as if you have lost some sensation during sex, if you feel as if you’ve become dryer than you used to be, and if you have occasional episodes of urinary incontinence, the vaginal rejuvenation provided by ThermiVa could be an excellent procedure for you. A side benefit of the radiofrequency energy is that it tightens and firms the labia on the outside of the vagina.
The only exceptions for ThermiVa are pregnant women or women with any kind of infection around the vaginal area.
What to expect
The treatment is performed by applying radiofrequency energy with a specialized wand. Most patients experience noticeable improvement immediately after treatment. For most patients, a series of treatments is recommended to achieve optimal results. Maintenance sessions are usually recommended once or twice a year.
Is ThermiVa painful?
The ThermiVa handpiece was designed to deliver the radiofrequency energy but with the most comfort at the same time. The width of the active tip that delivers the radiofrequency energy is just 0.5 inches. Its shape is patterned after the natural curvature of the vaginal walls. Warm ultrasound gel is used during treatment. When the RF energy is delivered patients feel a gentle warming in the vagina, but the sensation is not painful.
Is there any downtime after my ThermiVa treatment?
ThermiVa uses radiofrequency energy, which is actually around us all the time in our environment. Despite ThermiVa concentrating this energy, this procedure is completely non-invasive. You can return to your normal activities as soon as you leave our Sugar Land offices. There is no limitation on sexual activity afterwards, as well.
How soon will I see results after a ThermiVa session?
ThermiVa delivers both immediate and enduring results. The treatment’s radiofrequency energy delivers immediate results as the collagen in the area remodels. From there your results continue to improve over the next three to four months.
How long will I notice a difference with ThermiVa?
Your results should last for about one year, but if you have a “touch-up” at one year, these results can expand for up to three years.
What Our Patients Have To Say
Dr. Carr and her team are the best to work with. They all genuinely care about you as an individual and more importantly about your experience and results.
What is the difference between ThermiVa and Mona Lisa Touch?
ThermiVa uses radiofrequency energy to rejuvenate both the inner vaginal tissues and the outer labia. The procedure is completely non-invasive and painless. There isn’t any recovery time or limitations on what you can do immediately afterwards.
MonaLisa Touch uses fractional laser energy to creates hundreds of microscopic channels in the interior vaginal tissues, triggering a wound response and new collagen production. MonaLisa Touch is only used on the inside of the vagina. There is some discomfort during the procedure and some slight swelling afterwards. Patients need to avoid sexual activity and strenuous exercise for a few days after the procedure. MonaLisa Touch does not tighten or improve the outer labia.
