ThermiVa treats a range of women’s intimate health concerns. Here are the most common sexual health issues we can address with non surgical vaginal rejuvenation in Issaquah.
Vaginal dryness is often the core cause of many women’s sexual health problems. Your natural lubrication makes you more comfortable throughout the day and is important for healthy sexual intercourse. ThermiVa enhances your natural lubrication by stimulating the growth of new collagen in vaginal tissue.
Painful intercourse can have a significant impact on your relationship with your partner and inhibits your own satisfaction. This is a common issue for many women, and non surgical vaginal rejuvenation in Issaquah at TLJ MD can help you enjoy intimacy again.
Events like childbirth and menopause can result in weakened pelvic floor muscles and vaginal laxity, causing many women to experience urinary incontinence. With ThermiVa treatments, your vaginal skin regains its firmness and elasticity, which can reverse wear from vaginal births or the natural aging process.
As a general term, urinary incontinence refers to the loss of bladder control. There are multiple reasons a patient might suffer from urinary incontinence, however. A few of the common causes include:
There are two types of incontinence as well: stress incontinence and urge incontinence.
This refers to some type of physical stress in the body causing urine leakage. Actions like coughing, laughing, running, or other physical movements that cause a contraction of the muscles in the bladder cause urine leaks in many people suffering from stress incontinence. Your pelvic floor muscles can no longer hold in urine during those contractions.
Sudden, uncontrollable urges to urinate, even when you don’t have a full bladder, is referred to as urge incontinence. These sensations may be so strong that you can’t make it to a bathroom in time. This can result in frequent urination, more than 8 times per day, or when you actually use the restroom, you may not urinate much.
Patients can suffer from both types of incontinence. Non surgical vaginal rejuvenation in Issaquah with ThermiVa can help treat both types as well, saving you the embarrassment and inconvenience of leaks.
Unlike other non surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments, ThermiVa requires no lasers, no anesthesia, and no medications. It uses radiofrequency energy to gently heat the tissues inside and outside of your vagina, which stimulates your body’s natural ability to rebuild collagen and elastin in the vagina and surrounding areas.
Using the ThermiVa externally stimulates tightening of the labia, which could loosen after childbirth or naturally with aging.
ThermiVa treatments take 30 minutes, and we recommend 3 treatments as early as 4 weeks apart, with maintenance treatments once or twice annually. Because ThermiVa is both non surgical and non-ablative, there is no downtime required after your treatment. We can also customize the treatment to fit your comfort level.
Before suggesting any aesthetic treatments for our patients, we take the time to learn about your specific needs and concerns. After we have gone through your history and learned what you’re looking for, we will tailor our treatment recommendations toward your unique needs.
At TLJ Aesthetics, Dr. Jacobson has over 20 years of experience in women’s health and in understanding the unique needs of her female patients. For many years, treatment options were limited to drugs and surgery. Now, however, there are comfortable and quick vaginal rejuvenation treatments that can achieve outstanding results.
At TLJ, our patients have the added benefit of Dr. Jacobson’s private advanced training with the physician who developed ThermiVa, Urogynecologist Dr. Red Alinsod. It’s not enough to simply have a device capable of improving your feminine function—it must be exceptional. And the technique is everything.
We also make every effort to ensure your comfort during the treatment.
The main difference between ThermiVa and other vaginal rejuvenation treatments, both surgical and non surgical, is the lack of downtime. Since ThermiVa is both non surgical and non ablative, it only gently heats your vaginal tissues without damaging them.
ThermiVa is also non hormonal. Typically hormone therapy is the first choice of management for gynecological and vulvovaginal conditions, but it’s not always safe for patients with a history of breast cancer, hypertension, blood clots, migraines, or heart disease. ThermiVa is an ideal treatment choice for patients with these issues, because it doesn’t affect the delicate balance of hormones in your body.
The effects of ThermiVa treatments to improve bladder control, vaginal lubrication, and skin laxity will gradually wane over time. While function and appearance will improve for many months after your initial treatment, maintenance treatments are optimal for lasting results.
Maintenance treatments are ideal after an initial treatment course, and then a single treatment every 6 to12 months works for most patients.
You can notice results from your ThermiVa non surgical vaginal rejuvenation in Issaquah almost immediately. Your results will gradually increase overtime, peaking up to several months after completion of your treatment.
In general, healthy women who have been through childbirth or menopause, have breastfed, or have undergone chemotherapy or a hysterectomy could benefit from ThermiVa treatment. This non surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment in Issaquah treats a variety of vaginal health concerns, from discomfort during intercourse to incontinence.
