ThermiVa uses radiofrequency (RF) waves, which is proven to tighten loose skin while also boosting collagen for structural support. Using the RF wand, we can tighten internal and external vaginal tissue over a series of three or more treatments.
THERMIVA FAQQuestions and concerns are natural with a treatment such as ThermiVa. We’re here to empower you with the knowledge you need to make an informed decision about your health and wellness. Please contact our office to discuss this treatment with our staff and schedule a consultation to find out if a vaginal rejuvenation procedure like ThermiVa is right for you. We also encourage you to speak with your gynecologist.
Women who experience one or more of the following symptoms may benefit from ThermiVa:
- labial sagging
- painful intercourse
- orgasmic dysfunction
- urinary incontinence
Not everyone with these symptoms will benefit from a ThermiVa treatment. Some can benefit from a combination of ThermiVa and other therapies as prescribed by a gynecologist, including hormones commonly prescribed during menopause. It’s important to discuss your gynecologic history with our providers during your consultation to ensure you’re a good candidate who will benefit from this treatment.
We recommend a minimum of three treatments to see results. Some patients may require more treatments.
ThermiVa is not painful and no numbing or anesthesia is needed.
There is no downtime with ThermiVa.
Please contact our office and your insurance company for more information about paying for non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments.
ThermiVa is the only treatment that tightens internal and external vaginal tissue. Other treatments only treat one or the other, not both. Competing technologies, like the Mona Lisa Touch or FemiLift, use lasers to achieve results. With these procedures, women do experience downtime and require pre-procedure numbing. ThermiVa does not require these and uses non-ablative radiofrequency technology instead of lasers.
If your vaginal and labial tissue is loose, sagging, and causing folds or chaffing, it creates more irritation, breaks in the skin, and places for bacteria to hide and breed. By correcting these loose areas, we reduce the opportunity for bacteria to collect and grow.
If your urethra is loose and weak, ThermiVa can strengthen tissue in these areas by stimulating collagen production. However, not all urinary incontinence conditions can be corrected with ThermiVa. We will be able to make this determination through a vaginal examination and with the help of your medical history and records from your gynecologist.
It’s important to discuss ThermiVa following childbirth with your OBGYN, first and foremost. As a rule, however, ThermiVa can be performed once you’re cleared for intercourse by your OBGYN; this usually occurs at 6 weeks postpartum but varies from patient to patient.
If you scheduled your appointment and find that you have an infection the day of your appointment, you should reschedule until the infection has cleared up.
