I never thought that I would add vaginal rejuvenation to my list of services here at my Fargo clinic. After trying it out for myself, I was eager to share this treatment with my clients.
A couple of years ago, I noticed that the laser companies were developing innovative “feminine rejuvenation” lasers. At first, I thought the idea was crazy. Who would ever want to have a treatment down there? I have to admit, I am in my 40s and have had two children. I have listened to my friends talk about leaking, a condition known as urinary incontinence, and considered myself lucky. I had been spared from that issue, so vaginal rejuvenating treatments never crossed my mind.
That quickly changed.
While I was researching skin tightening, I stumbled across a device called ThermiVa®. I assumed it was just another vaginal treatment, so I didn’t put much energy into learning more about it. When a rep from the company contacted me, I didn’t show much interest. However, he was excited about the treatment and pushed back against my initial opinions. He wasn’t giving up. Finally, I agreed to try it out for myself. I want to be the best resource for my clients, so I have tried every treatment offered here at Rejuv. I owe it to my patients to test-drive all my services.
The day of the treatment, my nurse asked if I had any issues with incontinence. Right away I told her that I had no problems with bladder control. Then she moved on to questions about my intimate life. I sheepishly answered that things did feel different at 40 than they did at 20. Whether that’s from having children, natural aging, or being with the same partner for 20 years—I’m not sure. I noticed that there was definitely less moisture, sex was sometimes uncomfortable, and sensitivity in the area decreased dramatically.
She assured me that this treatment would give me immediate results and that her patients have given her overwhelmingly positive feedback. I was definitely worried about pain, so I asked about the degree of discomfort. She explained that most patients describe treatment as a warm sensation on both the internal and external feminine areas. That reassurance gave me the courage to follow through.
Turns out it was a piece of cake! The whole thing took about 20 minutes and I was relaxed the entire time. In fact, there was not one moment where I felt uncomfortable. I have had many laser treatments in the past, so was shocked that this treatment was so pleasant.
And the results? In short—my treatment was on a Sunday, and by Monday morning I had signed the paperwork to purchase a ThermiVa device for Rejuv. The rumors are true: it does make a huge difference in your sex life. You and your partner will both feel the difference. Often women notice more lubrication, improved tightness, and increased orgasm intensity. Men notice the additional lubrication as well as a pre-children tightness. Cosmetically, the area looks lifted and more youthful—the labia may appear tighter and smoother. The treatment can provide an overall rejuvenation inside and out. I can tell you firsthand that I LOVE this treatment and will definitely continue maintenance treatments for years to come. To truly understand the results, you must experience it for yourself, but let me tell you once you try ThermiVa, you will likely get hooked. For the sake of the internet, I will not show my ThermiVa before and after… You just need to try it yourself.
