Millions of women experience changes to their bodies related to childbirth, hormonal fluctuations, and menopause. Age-related and personally sensitive conditions may include stress incontinence, vaginal atrophy, dryness, and pain with intercourse, which have long-lasting physiologic effects on women’s self-confidence and intimacy.
Addressing the unique urogynecological needs of women has come to be known as vaginal rejuvenation. Vaginal rejuvenation covers a host of aesthetic and surgical procedures to address the restoration of a women’s pelvic floor, vagina, and surrounding tissues. Historically, vaginal pain and dryness were treated with hormones, topical lubricants, and medications, while surgical options addressed the pelvic floor and vaginal laxity.
Many women seek the benefit of the latest in-office and non-surgical use of energy-based procedures to avoid hormones and invasive procedures. Laser and radiofrequency (RF) procedures are widely available to treat women’s intimate health issues.
At Swisher Skin and Laser, we use a radiofrequency modality, TempSure Vitalia. Specifically designed for women’s wellness, the TempSure Vitalia probe uses radiofrequency to deliver precise heating for smaller, hard to reach areas to improve circulation and decrease vaginal pain. Gently heating the tissues of the vagina for a defined, therapeutic time triggers a natural response for the skin to create new collagen and elastin. The device may also be used to treat the exterior labia and vulva.
“Patient requests for skin tightening, body contouring, and vaginal rejuvenation are increasing – especially since these are non-surgical, in-office techniques,” said Dr. Jenette T. Swisher, Medical Director of Swisher Skin and Laser Center. “I chose the TempSure RF device because it allows us to expand our services to meet those demands. We can provide multiple modalities including addressing a woman’s intimate health. All of our RF treatments are effective, painless, and have no downtime. The results can be life-changing!”
Treatments may take anywhere from 30-60 minutes. During treatment, patients can expect to feel a warm sensation during the procedure. Expect 3- 5 treatments every 2-4 weeks. This procedure is gentle and well-tolerated and provides immediate benefits. It does not require anesthesia, and most patients can resume their regular routines immediately after treatment.
Like all medical procedures, not all patients are suitable for TempSure Vitalia. The 18mm handpiece provides heating for the purpose of elevating tissue temperature for selected medical conditions such as temporary relief of pain, muscle spasms, and increase in local circulation. Physicians and patients should discuss the procedure and review the risks and benefits of this procedure.
