Childbirth and the natural aging process often cause relaxation of vaginal muscles. Skin changes, such as laxity and the loss of vitality you notice on your face with aging may also affect the tissue lining the vaginal walls. These changes diminish sensation during intercourse and may decrease your sexual desire.
Increased vaginal dryness can also lead to risk of infections. Changes in the vaginal area may also lead to stress urinary incontinence, resulting in unexpected loss of urine. This is occurs as the muscle walls in the vaginal area lose tone and allow the bladder to drop out of place.
Vaginal rejuvenation with ThermiVa and PRP therapy use your body’s natural healing processes to help restore strength to your vaginal muscles and repair the skin damage caused by aging.
The ThermiVa system uses a specially-designed device that delivers controlled radiofrequency energy directly to the vaginal tissue. This energy heats the tissues and promotes increased collagen production. Collagen is a natural substance used by your body to restore tissue strength and health at the cellular level.
ThermiVa therapy can:
PRP uses your own platelets to promote your body’s natural healing process. Your blood contains red cells, white cells, and platelets that are suspended in plasma. To obtain platelet-rich plasma, your provider uses a small amount of your blood and sends it through a process called centrifugation. This separates the blood components and the platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, can be removed.
Platelets contain proteins called growth factors that are very important in the healing process. When injected into specific locations of your vaginal region, the PRP engages your body’s healing process to repair tissue damage. This therapy has been used by orthopedists and other specialists for years to help speed recovery after surgery, repair joint damage due to aging, and restore vitality to aging skin. It also provides amazing rejuvenating results for vaginal tissue.
