Aging, menopause, childbirth, weight gain, and many other factors contribute to female genital health. These changes can significantly impact the quality of life, but women rarely discuss them, even with their physicians.
In a survey of 421 women who have experienced at least one vaginal birth, 48% reported vulvovaginal laxity or looser skin. Of these women, 62% never discussed it with anyone despite 50% feeling that improving tightness would increase sexual satisfaction for both themselves and their partner.
Though the term “genital rejuvenation” may imply that these procedures are only performed for cosmetic purposes, the reasons women seek female genital rejuvenation procedures are, in fact, varied. These include, but are not limited to, painful intercourse, pain with athletic activity, urinary incontinence, orgasmic dysfunction, vulvar irritation, chafing, and discomfort with underwear/clothing.
In recent years, new technology is allowing for less invasive methods of treating vulvovaginal laxity and thinness of the skin without resorting to traditional surgery. Several studies have demonstrated that women are significantly interested in these procedures.
We are now excited to offer the latest treatment for this area, ThermiVa®, which uses the same innovative radiofrequency technology used in ThermiTight in order to comfortably and painlessly tighten the vaginal canal and vulvovaginal tissue in a no downtime in-office 30-minute procedure. Be one of the first to try this new technology and take control of your genital health!
