Vaginal tissues can stretch and loosen as a result of delivering a baby. Laxity also develops over time as muscles lose tone. For many women, vaginal laxity contributes to diminished sensation during sexual intercourse.
Vaginal atrophy occurs after menopause when loss of estrogen affects the health of vaginal tissues. Without estrogen, these tissues lose tone and elasticity. The vaginal wall also becomes thin and dry.
Vaginal atrophy has a significant impact on women’s health, causing symptoms such as:
Dr. Ntaimo offers noninvasive treatment with ThermiVa to effectively relieve the symptoms of vaginal laxity and vaginal atrophy.
ThermiVa is a state-of-the-art medical device that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to rejuvenate your vaginal health. After Dr. Ntaimo inserts a specially designed applicator into your vagina, it sends out RF waves that safely pass through vaginal tissues.
The RF energy gently warms the tissues, which immediately tightens existing collagen. The therapy produces long-term improvement by triggering collagen production and increasing blood flow.
As tissues regenerate, your vagina regains youthful tone and texture, and the vaginal wall becomes tighter. The symptoms of vaginal atrophy and laxity disappear.
Yes, ThermiVa is FDA approved to treat orgasmic dysfunction. It’s estimated that 35% of women may have trouble achieving an orgasm due to vaginal laxity.
Temperature-controlled RF treatment improves your ability to have an orgasm by:
ThermiVa can also be used to treat your external genitalia, where it tightens tissues and improves sensitivity.
One treatment with ThermiVa takes about 30 minutes. You won’t need anesthesia because RF energy is gentle, and the temperature is automatically monitored to ensure you’re comfortable. There’s no downtime, so you can get back to your routine as soon as your session is finished.
You may see or feel immediate results as the existing collagen tightens during treatment. It takes a little time for new collagen and an improved blood supply to develop, however. You’ll gradually notice ongoing improvements over the next few months.
Your results last up to a year. After that, you’ll only need one yearly ThermiVa treatment to keep your vaginal tissues and external genitalia strong and healthy.
The O-shot, or orgasm-shot, is an injection that helps restore vaginal health, improves orgasms, and boosts your sexual pleasure. The active ingredient in the O-shot, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), is made in the office from your own blood.
Dr. Ntaimo draws a sample of your blood, then processes it to separate platelets from other blood components. This creates a high concentration of platelets, the platelet-rich plasma, that’s used in your O-shot.
Platelets contain proteins called growth factors, which trigger the production of new cells and tissues.
When Dr. Ntaimo injects PRP into your vagina and clitoris, the growth factors promote the production of nerves, blood vessels, and collagen. These new tissues work together to tighten and rehydrate vaginal tissues and to improve clitoral response, which leads to better orgasms.
