Can we get personal? Many women feel uncomfortable in their most delicate and sensitive areas: the vagina and labia. They may be embarrassed to talk about their problems, unaware that there are treatments available to restore comfort and confidence. If you’re suffering from uncomfortable symptoms in your feminine areas because of aging, pregnancy, or childbirth, come into Diehl Plastic Surgery and talk with Dr. Diehl about your concerns. The changes you’ve experienced are normal and very treatable with a non-surgical option called ThermiVa®.

Common Feminine Complaints and What to Do About Them

Are you having problems “down there”? Change is a constant in a woman’s body and sometimes those changes lead to uncomfortable and unexpected symptoms in a woman’s most intimate areas. After pregnancy or hormonal changes many women report:

-Stress urinary incontinence (urine leakage)

– Vaginal dryness

-Painful intercourse

-Relaxed vaginal tissues

-Stretched out or sagging labia

-Decreased sexual function

These changes can have a major impact on how a woman feels about herself. Urinary incontinence can make exercise difficult and laughter stressful. Sexual changes can leave a woman feeling anxious in the bedroom and can affect relationships. These changes are serious and deserve proper attention.

At Diehl Plastic Surgery, we treat these concerns and others with ThermiVa®. We are pleased to offer this non-surgical option for vaginal rejuvenation to women in the Raleigh and Chapel Hill, NC areas.  Dr. Gilkey, a retired gynecologist is the primary ThermiVa® provider and a wonderful resource for our office.

What Is ThermiVa®?

ThermiVa® is an FDA-approved treatment for vaginal rejuvenation. It uses radiofrequency energy to gently heat vaginal and vulvar tissues to build collagen and gently tighten the internal and external tissue. The ThermiVa® device is a specially shaped wand that can treat feminine tissues both inside and outside of the vagina.

There are many benefits to ThermiVa® including:

-Tightening of the vaginal opening and canal.

-Reduction of sagging labia.

-Tightening of the vulva.

-Improved skin tone of feminine areas.

-Improved lubrication and less vaginal dryness.

-Increased sensitivity that may lead to easier, stronger orgasms.

-Less urinary incontinence.

These treatment benefits come from a non-surgical procedure that requires no downtime. You can even resume sexual activity the same day as your treatment.

What Can I Expect from a Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment in Raleigh, NC?

ThermiVa® treatments are performed in our offices and take about 45 minutes, start to finish. Patients are comfortably positioned on a treatment chair with soft knee crutches as they would during a pelvic exam. The handheld ThermiVa® wand will be moved across, over, inside, and around the vaginal and vulvar area. The treatment is painless and requires no anesthesia. Patients describe a warming sensation during ThermiVa®.

After your treatment, you’ll be ready to return home immediately. Many patients go right back to work. Patients can resume exercise and sexual activity as desired.

Surgical Treatment Options for Vaginal Rejuvenation

ThermiVa® is a safe and effective non-surgical treatment for vaginal and labial changes. We also offer a surgical vaginal rejuvenation option known as labiaplasty. This procedure reduces the size of the labia minora. This treatment is ideal for women with enlarged labia minora (inner labia lips), especially if they are causing embarrassment or discomfort. Dr. Diehl can explain your treatment options during a consultation.
