Do you pee when you laugh? Cross your legs when coughing or sneezing? Avoid the gym, or wear a pad when exercising? It’s quite possible, you may have stress incontinence. Life events such as childbirth, menopause and the natural aging process can alter a woman’s vaginal health. These changes can lead to common feminine discomfort, such as stress incontinence and vaginal dryness; and have a substantial impact on a woman’s quality of life.
Stress Incontinence: A Common Medical Problem
Many, many women who have had children struggle with symptoms of stress incontinence, often by the time they reach their forties. Medications may not always prove to be effective and surgical procedures are all to often invasive and sometimes full of complications. Many adjust their lifestyle by simply wearing pads or racing to empty their bladders as frequently as possible. That’s why…
Ventura Institute of Dermatologic Arts (VIDA) is proud to introduce ThermiVa as a vaginal rejuvenation treatment for Ventura County. ThermiVa painlessly stimulates collagen formation and works to restore tissues that will support a healthy bladder.
What is ThermiVa for Vaginal Rejuvenation?
ThermiVa is a single-use, “S” shaped wand that uses radiofrequency, thermal energy to direct gentle heat. The disposable device helps to tighten tissues, produce collagen and potentially repair nerve damage. Dr. Karlsberg and his expert Physician’s Assistant, Michele Ayans, use ThermiVa for patients looking to improve their love life or build self-esteem. In addition to urinary stress incontinence, a course of therapy can also successfully treat:
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal atrophy
- Painful intercourse
- Orgasmic dysfunction
- Bladder leakage
- Skin laxity
How Does ThermiVa Work?
ThermiVa enjoys over a 90% satisfaction rating on RealSelf.com from actual patients. Patients describe the procedure as pleasant and very comfortable with the ability to resume all activities immediately after treatment. Typically, women continue to enjoy the benefits of ThermiVa for at least one year post-procedure. Total treatment time takes less than 30 minutes and a complete course of therapy consists of three treatments, over a three-month period. Potential future touch-up treatments may be required. Healthy and hormonally balanced women will maintain their benefits longer.
ThermiVa, the Smart Alternative to Surgery
ThermiVa treatments are non-invasive, non-surgical and are performed without the need for anesthesia. The procedure requires absolutely no downtime and patients can engage in sexual relations, exercise or any physical activity she chooses immediately following the treatment. The key advantages of ThermiVa include:
