The Vaginal Rejuvenation Revolution

The Vaginal Rejuvenation Revolution

Vaginal rejuvenation continues to draw in new patients the more the procedures spread in popularity. Many might never have considered the possibility of surgically improving the vagina, whether for purely aesthetic reasons or functional, or both.

Dr. Christine Hamori and Dr. Tino Mendieta breakdown one of the more exciting vaginal rejuvenation procedures that restores both aesthetics and function, all with no surgery and no downtime. Can the ThermiVa device truly deliver such results?

Functional Improvement

People tend to resign themselves to the loss of function over time. As we age, the joints weaken, muscle is lost… all typical, unavoidable things we all face, right? Perhaps women feel the same about vaginal functions, such as lubrication, urinary stress incontinence, loss of libido, etc. “It’s just a product of time.” Not anymore!

Dr. Hamori is an expert at vaginal restorative surgeries and finds the ThermiVa device to be a game-changer. “I think most women are protective down there and don’t want a surgical procedure,” she explains. “But now we have some new devices that can do a lot of fun things like tighten the vagina, improve lubrication, and enhance orgasm. One is called ThermiVa and it’s a radiofrequency device. It has a very small probe that helps stimulate nerve growth. It really works, especially as women are getting to the perimenopausal age and having trouble with lubrication, losing interest in sex, and feeling bad about themselves.”

It Sounds Too Good To Be True…

As with other burgeoning non-surgical devices and treatments, ThermiVa sounds quite similar to a magic procedure that involves only positives and next to no negatives. Besides functional improvement, ThermiVa’s radio-frequency energy provides tightening both inside and out, adding the aesthetic improvement that many women are seeking.

Dr. Mendieta frequently performs surgical procedures aimed at aesthetically improving the vagina, and wonders if a non-surgical option such as ThermiVa does what it claims. “What I do usually is the surgical tightening, but it is surgery,” he explains. “It’s 6 weeks without activity. I’ve been dying to find out, does [ThermiVa] really work?”

“It does work,” answers Hamori. “Uniformly patients after 3 treatments have had some tightening. Their husbands are happier, they’re more interested in sex and they’re more confident.”

Dr. Hamori typically performs 3 procedures initially with a follow-up after 6 months. As for the procedures themselves, “They’re painless, they take a half hour. You can exercise, have sex that night. No downtime whatsoever.”

Many women may not know the benefits of vaginal rejuvenation, or even that it exists. As devices such as ThermiVa continue to make waves and improve, there may be a day soon when restoring function and aesthetic to the vagina is as easy and commonplace as Botox for wrinkles.
