ThermiVa™ is a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure. ThermiVa™ uses a radio-frequency device to treat the following conditions in a fast and painless way with thermal heating:
During menopause, women can go through problems such as incontinence, dryness in the vagina, and laxity in the vagina. These are all part of the birth process and aging, but many women wish to avoid these problems. While there are a number of invasive procedures available, ThermiVa™ is the first such treatment that is pain-free, has no downtime, and is not surgical. This system uses controlled thermal energy to help minimize side effects and even make cosmetic enhancements to the labia.
Treatments with ThermiVa™ will usually take place with a set of three treatments, administered individually, every three to four weeks.
Patients may notice real improvement after the first session. After the initial three sessions are complete, some patients may continue with a course of maintenance treatments every 9 to 12 months.
ThermiVa™ is typically done in a series of three treatments every three to four weeks. ThermiVa™ treatment involves warming the temperature of the vaginal tissue and labia. A special applicator is gently moved over the labia and inner tissue heating the surface slowly. Stimulation of tissue results in increased collagen production and tightening of the tissue. No anesthesia is needed. Patients experience no pain and have no downtime whatsoever. While full results take more than one treatment appointment, many patients notice improvement after just one visit.
Women who have experienced multiple vaginal deliveries are often at risk for vaginal laxity. Laxity can also come from:
Dr. Radford recommends ThermiVa™ for women who:
The success of the initial clinical studies of ThermiVa™ has allowed the Food and Drug Administration to classify it as safe for non-surgical treatment of laxity in the vagina. There have not been any reports of nerve damage, burns, blisters or infections coming from this procedure.
No, no anesthetics are needed as this treatment uses a controlled temperature that is comfortable for the patient.
On average, the treatment will take 15 minutes (no longer) for reduction of the labia majora, and an added 15 minutes for vaginal tightening.
There is really no downtime for ThermiVa™. Patients may resume sexual activity the same day as the treatment sessions.
After the initial three procedures are completed, results will typically last 9 to 12 months. The procedure can be repeated each year to maintain the results.
