GRAND RAPIDS, MI--(Marketwired - May 06, 2016) - It might not be easy for women to talk about dissatisfaction with their vaginal area, but the Bengtson Center is aiming to help make the conversation -- and provide a solution -- as easy as possible. The May addition of ThermiVa® to the cosmetic surgery center in Michigan marks its arrival in Grand Rapids, where Dr. Brad Bengtson constantly seeks to offer the latest in FDA-approved technology for his patients.

Since vaginal issues are already a sensitive topic, Dr. Bengtson wanted to make treatment of laxity, dryness, and discomfort a painless endeavor. ThermiVa® is a nonsurgical option that uses radiofrequency energy to generate heat and gently stimulate collagen production.

Collagen is a protein found all throughout the body, serving to make skin both strong and supple by providing structure and helping other elements to retain moisture. Both of these qualities are vital for a well-functioning vaginal area, but many parts of the body cease operating as well as they used to over time, with youthful contours and support giving way to looseness. While the effect on some features is mainly cosmetic, it can lead to physical problems in the vaginal area, including loss of sensation during intercourse, or even discomfort and pain. Internal laxity can also lead to incontinence.

While all of these problems can develop with age alone, they are often triggered or even furthered along by the process of childbirth, which causes trauma to vaginal tissues and is accompanied by hormone shifts.

The collagen boost triggered by a ThermiVa® treatment session can help with all of the problems listed above -- whether a woman has experienced childbirth or not -- by strengthening and thickening walls to provide more support, tightening unwanted laxity, and promoting moisture retention in tissues. Women may need several ThermiVa® sessions to achieve their desired results.
