In today’s world, we’re much more educated now about healthy diets and the importance of exercise and limiting stress, but what doesn’t garner much attention is the importance of intimacy and sexuality. Being sexually intimate has the ability to increase overall health benefits. So, how does this one aspect make us healthier? It has to do with the release of major hormones and chemicals that our bodies need on a regular basis. It’s a mind, spirit, body connection on a medical level, which includes benefits such as lowered stress hormones, brain function improvement, better sleep, enhanced bone health, and an increase in mood and pleasure, to name a few.
But what happens if you struggle with intimacy? For men, there are pills, injections, and other quick fixes, but for women, they often suffer in silence. In fact, many women believe their issues are a common condition chalked up to aging, and that there is nothing that can be done to help them. However, nothing could be further from the truth.
Along with physical bodily changes and loss of sensations due to childbirth, sexual disorders in women are often due to vaginal atrophy. Intimacy issues can also equally affect ones partner’s psychological wellbeing and cause undue tension on the relationship. Dyspareunia (painful sex) is a symptom of vulvar and vaginal atrophy (VVA). You’re not alone; painful sex is a very common disorder.
Vulvar and Vaginal Atrophy
The truth is that many pre and postmenopausal women, and also women that have recently gone through childbirth, can have vaginal disorders, like burning, dryness, and pain that they often withhold and keep to themselves. Most women think that it’s just a “normal” part of the hormonal process, but they don’t have to live with this condition! There are options to relieve and reverse vaginal and vulvar atrophy.
What is VVA?
Due to the limited estrogen supply, the walls of the vagina start to thin out, causing dryness, and inflammation. This can make intercourse very painful, can cause urinary disorders, and can even interfere with daily activities for many women due to the extreme pain and discomfort that it can cause.
There are many options for women, like creams, medications, and surgery, but they all pale in comparison to an innovative procedure that has no side effects and only takes a few minutes to perform right in the convenience of the office-setting. This advanced technology is called ThermiVa®, and it’s helped numerous women find restoration within their relationship and has helped them to get their confidence and sexual health back.
Women don’t want to feel as though they’ve lost control of their body – especially when it affects parts of their life. ThermiVa is a quick, non-invasive, non-ablative treatment delivering physician controlled radiofrequency energy using a thoughtfully designed handpiece to heat the tissues gently.
Collagen is a protein that makes your skin firm and elastic. The natural aging process can diminish collagen. When the skin has less collagen, it can lose its youthful appearance.
By using radiofrequency energy, tissues are heated to stimulate and re-build your body’s own collagen, naturally. Treatments using radiofrequency technology are also widely used in dermatology and aesthetic medicine. ThermiVa restores balance to the vaginal mucosa and tightens the area to increase sensations. ThermiVa is a convenient radiofrequency treatment, performed in-office.
