Like your skin and other parts of your body, the tissues lining your vagina change naturally as you get older. Though these tissues stretch and weaken during vaginal childbirth, you’re most likely to need vaginal revitalization when your estrogen levels drop at menopause.
Estrogen fills many roles in your body, including maintaining vaginal health. Without estrogen, collagen production drops, and without this vital protein, tissues lose strength and resilience.
As a result, your vaginal lining becomes dry, thin, and fragile. This condition, called vaginal atrophy or the genitourinary syndrome of menopause, affects up to half of the women after they reach menopause.
The changes in vaginal tissues cause symptoms such as:
The team at Kem Health Obstetrics & Gynecology uses THERMIva, one of today’s most advanced devices, to restore vaginal tissues and reverse vaginal atrophy.
The THERMIva uses a narrow applicator that sends out gentle radiofrequency (RF) energy. Your provider at Kem Health Obstetrics & Gynecology inserts the applicator into your vagina, then turns on the device, allowing a controlled level of RF energy to pass into the tissues lining your vagina.
The RF energy warms the tissues, which, in turn, triggers collagen production. As your body develops new collagen, your vagina regains strength, tone, elasticity, and tightness. As a result, you get relief from the symptoms of vaginal atrophy.
One THERMIva session takes about 15 minutes or less, and you can get back to your usual daily activities as soon as you finish the treatment.
Many women start to notice the difference a day or two after their treatment. You won’t experience optimal results for a few months because it takes time for your body to produce collagen.
Your results should last about a year*; then, you’ll need another THERMIva treatment to maintain a strong, healthy vagina.
