Dr. Jennifer Walden was recently featured on KEYE-CBS We Are Austin to talk about the new non-invasive, painless procedure to help relieve menopausal symptoms of vaginal dryness and atrophy and/or post-delivery related problems such as vulvovaginal laxity and mild stress incontinence. ThermiVa is a new technology for vaginal rejuvenation that Dr. Walden is the first in Austin to offer; it utilizes temperature controlled radiofrequency to address these clinical problems affecting many women yet ones that are rarely spoken about. ThermiVa uses a sleek probe to help shrink and tighten vaginal tissues as well as external labia majora and minora laxity, so helps with aesthetic feminine issues as well as some internal functional ones. Surgical labiaplasty may also be considered and performed in tandem for those with severe external laxity of the labia minora and/or majora.
The range of benefits are numerous with the new technology in appropriate candidates: ThermiVa treatments can help relieve mild urinary incontinence or leakage of urine with coughing, laughing or jumping– a common occurrence after childbearing that is usually not severe enough in many women to necessitate surgery. Continued treatments can provide the most optimal results and it is recommended to do a series of three — once a month for three months. Maintenance treatments several times a year may be needed.
ThermiVa also helps patients overcome intimacy issues due to lack of lubrication in the vaginal region. All of these potential benefits can be life-changing to patients who previously had no options for treatment due to a lack of technology. In some cases it has helped women to even achieve orgasm easier and more frequently.
ThermiVa is an in-office based procedure that lasts around 30-45 minutes. To experience the best results, patients come once a month for three months. However, many patients will see an external tightening of the labia after just one treatment. After the full round of treatments, many patients have reported an elimination of dryness and atrophic vaginitis.
Dr. Walden’s patient Tammye is featured in the below news video has seen great results with ThermiVa. Tammye came to Dr. Walden for the treatment after she noticed tissue changes and dryness issues in her female region due to being post-menopausal. She also has experienced an improvement in these issues as well as improved bladder control and external changes after just one treatment.
