How does Fotona Laser and ThermiVA treatment improve the health and tightness, health, lubrication and sensation of the vagina?
Both laser and radiofrequency heats the vaginal wall to stimulate collagen crosslinking and tightening of the collagen in the vaginal wall. In addition, these treatments stimulate a rejuvenation in the glands that increase vaginal lubrication, circulation and sensitivity.
How are the treatments performed?
Both Fotona Laser and ThermiVA treatments are performed as a series of treatments (usually about 3) spaced about one month apart. Treatments are comfortable, take 20 to 45 minutes per treatment session, and do not require hospitalization, anesthesia or down time. These treatments can be performed during a lunch hour and the patient may return immediately to work or other activities. Minimal discharge in some women may require the wearing of a sanitary pad and avoiding sex for a day or two following the laser treatment.
