While many Houston women may only talk about it in their closest social circles, vaginal rejuvenation is a topic that is on a lot of women’s minds. As Houston women age, or experience childbirth, they notice differences to their vaginas, which can negatively affect their appearance, lubrication, tightness and function during sexual intercourse. They may also experience embarrassing incontinence, and wear panty liners daily because they find if they sneeze, that a bit of urine pushes out inadvertently. Until recently, a cosmetic surgery procedure called labiaplasty was a Houston woman’s only choice for vaginal rejuvenation. But thanks to the forward-thinking minds at the Ovation Med Spa, a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure called ThermiVa is now available, and it is delivering Houston women incredible results. If you’ve been noticing that you’re not the same down there, and you want to do something about it, read on to learn about the labiaplasty, ThermiVa and the differences between them.
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that requires a board certified plastic surgeon to perform. The goal of labiaplasty is to reduce the appearance of the labia majora, which may be naturally larger or become stretchy or saggy due to childbirth or aging. With labiaplasty, a triangular incision is made in the labia major, and the two open sides are then sewn together, making the labia smaller.
While labiaplasty is a successful form of vaginal rejuvenation, it does come with some downsides. First, since it is surgery, women who undergo labiaplasty will experience swelling, bruising, pain and need to refrain from certain activities during the healing process, including sexual intercourse. Second, labiaplasty is a cosmetic-only procedure and doesn’t address some other issues that women notice with their vaginas after childbirth or aging, such as a loosening vagina, vaginal dryness and difficultly achieving orgasm.
ThermiVa is a new vaginal rejuvenation treatment, originally developed in Singapore, which helps women regain aesthetic confidence, sexual function, and pleasure. ThermiVa works by using a single use disposable wand, which is smaller than a finger, to labia major and to the vagina to heat the tissue with thermal energy. This heat promotes tighter collagen production and may help in tissue and nerve healing.
The degree of heat that is used is described by women as comfortable, and compared to the heat of wax during a waxing session. Each ThermiVa session takes about 30 minutes to complete, and it contracts both the labia major and in the inside of the vagina. Women typically need three sessions to complete the ThermiVa treatment; each spread one month apart.
Because ThermiVa is a vaginal rejuvenation technique that is non-surgical, there is no down time from the procedure. Women can resume their normal activities the same day as their treatment, including sexual intercourse. And unlike labiaplasty, women who undergo ThermiVa for vaginal rejuvenation notice aesthetic differences to their vaginas as well as a tighter vagina that is more noticeable to both the client and her partner, more natural vaginal lubrication, reduction in incontinence and an easier time achieving orgasms.
