Many of our patients are able to undergo ThermiVa within an hour. This treatment is often done during a lunch break or other period of time which is convenient for our patients and their lifestyle.
This noninvasive treatment has the benefit of not requiring downtime or recovery because it is not a surgical treatment. Women are able to resume all their activities, including exercise and sexual activity without interruption.
The best candidate for ThermiVa is a woman who is experiencing problems with the vaginal area due to hormone fluctuations, age, or pregnancy. Most patients who consider this treatment are those who deal with problems such as urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, and decreased sexual function. We encourage women with these issues to consult with our team to determine if this treatment is appropriate for their specific needs and desires.
One of the benefits of ThermiVa is the ability to achieve results without any pain. Patients will not experience discomfort during their procedure.
There are no side effects to ThermiVa because radiofrequency energy is completely safe for patients because it is tested as safe and effective. This pain free procedure does not leave any scarring because it is nonsurgical. Patients also love that they can return to their normal activities without any downtime or recovery needed.
Many patients will see results gradually over time, as it is not an immediate response. This is because collagen building takes time. However, once the results are achieved, patients can then undergo routine treatments to maintain them and continually improve their vaginal strength and tightness.
