What is ThermiVa®?
ThermiVa® is a temperature-controlled radiofrequency device that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to gently heat tissue. This stimulates the vaginal tissues to produce more collagen. Collagen, part of our skin’s key support network, becomes less abundant and weaker with age, but ThermiVa® stimulates new, healthy collagen to develop in the area.
How Does ThermiVa® Work?
The small RF wand is used on the outside and inside of the vagina, and the energy from it passes into the tissues and stimulates the tissues to grow more collagen.
The increase in collagen production leads to healthier tissues with more youthful vitality. The vaginal area becomes tighter and improved lubrication makes intimacy more enjoyable. Even better, the treatment improves the support for the bladder and urinary tract system, reducing or eliminating symptoms of stress incontinence (such as when laughing or sneezing) as well as urge incontinence.
All women feel no discomfort during the procedure. You may feel warmth, but the device has temperature controls to protect your body. Treatments take about 30 minutes, with no recovery time needed.
Is There Any Downtime with ThermiVa®?
You can return to normal activities immediately after your treatment. Most people do not experience any side effects from the procedure, although there may be some sensitivity lasting a few hours.
How Long Will ThermiVa® Last?
ThermiVa® will be administered over three treatments, each one month apart. At the end of these treatments, you can expect your results to last about one year. You can always return to your provider for maintenance treatments to keep your results lasting longer.
