A Medical Condition that Can Be Treated Effectively
Yes, it can be an embarrassing problem to discuss (even with your doctor), but vaginal laxity (the loosening or sagging of the vulvovaginal area) is surprisingly common. Childbirth, especially with larger babies, can damage the pelvic floor ligaments. Without this support, the vaginal muscles are generally not strong enough to compensate. Menopause also harms this area due to the reduction in estrogen. While these are two major causes of vaginal laxity, it can manifest in women of any age.
The ThermiVa® treatment uses gentle heating to stimulate and tighten internal and external vulvovaginal tissue. This is administered in a doctor’s office, and because it is not surgical, no anesthetic is needed. Clients walk out after each treatment and can resume their normal activities. Often, improvement is noted after the very first ThermiVa® treatment (about 30 minutes), but we find that to optimize your results, a series of three is best, each one month apart.
