How does ThermiVa revitalize vaginal tissue?
ThermiVa is a noninvasive therapy that improves the appearance and function of vaginal tissue. A small handheld device delivers temperature controlled radiofrequency energy to the internal and external vaginal tissue as well as surrounding skin. This sterile probe causes no pain during treatment, and no downtime afterward.
The radiofrequency energy emitted from the probe is specially calibrated to treat tissue in these delicate regions. You stay comfortable during treatment but achieve effective firming results due to the development of collagen, a protein in all tissue that boosts strength and resiliency. Thermi-va tightens the vaginal opening, and vaginal caliber throughout its length. It also will tighten and contour vulva tissue, making it more comfortable and cosmetic to wear tight fitting pants. Vaginal moisture and sensitivity will both increase thereby improving sexual satisfaction. Though not FDA approved for treating urinary incontinence, many patients find that the tightening effect on the vaginal skin below the urethra effectively treats this issue as well, thereby avoiding the need for surgery involving mesh slings.
The very same radio frequency technology can also be used on the face to treat wrinkles and sagging skin, particularly around the eyes and mouth. This treatment, known as Thermi- Smooth is also available at the Bergenfield Gynecology and Wellness office.
Who should consider ThermiVa treatments?
If you’re a woman aged 30-60 with vaginal discomfort, ThermiVa is a good option. Symptoms that suggest ThermiVa can help include:
- Vaginal dryness that leads to pain during sex
- Stress incontinence or leakage of urine when you jump, sneeze, or laugh
Challenges achieving orgasm
- Vaginal tissue that appears stretched and pulled in all directions
How many ThermiVa treatments will I need?
Patients purchase a treatment package of three sessions to start. Improvements are typically noticeable after just one session, but the series three treatment package delivered over the course of three months gives you optimal results. To maintain results, booster treatments will be needed but the frequency can vary. Most patients only require a single treatment session every 6 -12 months to maintain their results. Some do well for even longer intervals.
Each individual session lasts 15-30 minutes. Go right back to work or chores after your appointment; you can even engage in sexual activity the very same day.
