What is ThermiVa?
Many women experience excessive relaxation of the vaginal muscles as a result of pregnancy and the natural aging process. This can result in dissatisfaction with the appearance of the labia and diminished sexual sensation. It can even result in urinary leaking under the stress of coughing or exercising.
Fortunately, ThermiVa Vaginal Rejuvenation, is a non-surgical, pain-free treatment to enhance appearance and sensation. Unlike traditional surgical procedures, the ThermiVa treatment system uses controlled radiofrequency waves to tighten the labia and vaginal canal, without the need for surgery. If you would like to learn more about how this sophisticated technology can benefit you, please contact our practice and schedule a consultation with our staff.
Candidacy for ThermiVa Vaginal Rejuvenation
Almost any woman in good health who desires vaginal rejuvenation can be a candidate for this procedure. We commonly recommend ThermiVa treatment to patients who:
- Are dissatisfied with the appearance of their labia and would like a more youthful and refreshed appearance
- Have difficulty reaching orgasm, or otherwise experience sexual dissatisfaction
- Have urinary incontinence
- Suffer from pelvic prolapse, including a displaced bladder or rectum
- Experience vaginal dryness and loss of vaginal tone, often after menopause
- Wish to correct vaginal laxity, after pregnancy and childbirth
Patients who have undergone ThermiVa treatment report experiencing reduced discomfort associated with relaxed vaginal muscles. They also report increased sexual confidence due to an improved appearance and greater satisfaction. Our discreet and thorough consultation process will help determine if this treatment is right for you.
Do you have very fine, very superficial wrinkles or creases in the skin that are, none the less, very bothersome to you? Maybe you have some of those pesky vertical lip lines or lines in the lower cheek and around the mouth for example or some wrinkling of the pink of your lips.
Here at the Center for Plastic Surgery we have a great way to target these lines very effectively. Volbella is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has some unique properties which allows Dr. Eliopoulos to more effectively target these superficial lines. This dermal filler is a soft, cohesive gel that quickly integrates into the skin and can be used to treat a wide range of facial wrinkles.
Unlike some of our more volumizing injectable fillers like Juvederm Ultra or Ultra Plus, Volbella is used more as a “fine line” filler rather than a “true volumizer”. Dr. Eliopoulos often uses the following analogy… If you were going to repair a “dent in a car” you might use Juvederm. But if you then wanted to “fix the scratches” in the paint, you would use Volbella.
Sometimes to get the best correction, Dr Eliopoulos and her Nurse Injectors may layer one filler on top of the other. For example, they might first treat an area more deeply with Juvederm to volumize a deeper fold, and then, layer Volbella or even Vollure on top for the fine work or finishing touches. We are pleased to have these multiple fillers, each with their own unique properties, to help achieve even better correction in patients interested in facial rejuvenation. A personal consultation with Dr. Eliopoulos or her Nurse Injectors is the best way to learn what combination of fillers will work the best for you to achieve your aesthetic goals.
