What is ThermiVa® nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation?
ThermiVa is a brand new non-surgical treatment that rejuvenates the vagina and vulva, without plastic surgery. Based on advanced RF technology, ThermiVa® allows you to obtain the safest and most precise treatment for restoring the appearance of your labia majora and minora, as well as dramatically tighten the tissues of your vaginal canal without surgery. On top of that, the device can improve the health of your vulvovaginal area, particularly after you’ve given birth or are in your latter years — childbirth and the natural aging process can cause changes that affect your feminine wellness, which makes ThermiVa® a great option for women who want to reverse these damaging effects.
Childbirth: A particularly strenuous vaginal childbirth, or multiple births, can cause stretching of the vaginal canal. Pregnancy and giving birth can also loosen and stretch the tissues, causing the labia majora and labia minora (the outer and inner lips of the female genitalia) to stretch and sag.
Aging: Aging and the effects of menopause can cause physical and functional changes, such as excessive dryness and hanging, saggy labia. The vagina can also loosen as a common sign of age.
Both conditions can rob you (and your partners) of your sense of well-being and happiness. It can also lead to mild to moderate stress incontinence and an over-active bladder, causing embarrassing situations while laughing or performing certain activities.
What can it do for me?
ThermiVa® can do a number of things for you. These are just some things:
The appearance of your genitalia
- It will tighten the tissues of your labia (nonsurgical labiaplasty). This reduces sagging and firms up the area for a more youthful appearance. You won’t be embarrassed about wearing tight clothing, such as jeans and leggings.
- It will tighten the vaginal canal for heightened sexual sensation for you and your partner. Patients have said that they are able to experience orgasms more easily, and even multiple orgasms in one sexual encounter.
- It can increase nerve sensitivity so you feel more.
- It can increase the strength of pelvic floor contractions.
- You’ll have improved vaginal moisture inside and outside for softer and thicker vulva-vaginal skin. This allows you to enjoy sex more.
- Our technology will give you a renewed sense of self with a more positive self and life perspective. After all, sexual satisfaction can do wonders for your mind and soul!
- It can correct mild to moderate stress incontinence or over-active bladder, so you won’t have embarrassing accidents anymore.
- Tightening of vulva-vaginal tissues results in an increase in tightness of the prolapse organs (specifically the bladder, uterus, vagina, small bowel and rectum). Scientific research has proven that you may experience an improvement in prolapse by one grade, making it unnecessary to undergo reconstructive surgery.
…and you can have all of these benefits in a series of a couple of sessions that don’t require any surgery!
How does it work?
ThermiVa® is a technologically advanced device in the shape of a handheld probe in the shape of an “S”. This smooth probe delivers controlled thermal radiofrequency energy directly to the areas you’d like to improve. You can choose the external genitalia, specifically the labia, and/or the internal genitalia, specifically the vaginal canal. The thermal energy delivered boosts collagen production, promoting its remodeling in both areas.
The handheld probe is single-use only, which means that each time you have a session performed, you can be confident knowing that a fresh, sterile probe is being used. This eliminates the risk of infection and transmission of disease from one patient to another.
There are no incisions and stitches required as is the case with cosmetic surgery procedures. All that’s involved is this probe!
Tell me more about the technology behind it.
ThermiVa® technology is based on temperature-controlled radio frequency therapy. This type of therapeutic technology has played an important part in medicine for several years now, both for cosmetic and non-cosmetic purposes. For example, RF therapy can help a broad range of health conditions, including fecal incontinence, obstructive sleep apnea, and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
For cosmetic purposes, it is praised for the ability to renew tissues and enhance the cellular structure of skin to make it healthier, stronger and more youthful. This is primarily due to its beneficial effect on the collagen in your skin, optimizing production and remodelling its structure. As a result, shrinkage of tissue occurs to improve tightness and firmness. Your labia skin will also be smoother and softer. While RF energy has commonly been applied to the external surface of the skin to improve the complexion, ThermiVa® simply applies it to the female genital area and intravaginally. In fact, it is currently the only technology that can improve both the external and internal genitalia. Doing this resolves aesthetic issues as well as those that are functional and associated with lax tissues in the area, such as lack of sexual sensation, prolapse and urinary incontinence.
After you’ve had a treatment, there is NO discomfort or downtime. You won’t experience any discharge or pain. There’s no need to worry about a lengthy recovery period or take time off of work. Just get right back to your daily activities as usual!
What do I have to do after my treatment?
Nothing! Simply get back to your regular activities without having to worry about reversing the effects of your treatment. You can even have sex if you’d like.
How many treatments do I need to get the results I want?
Generally, you’ll need about three sessions spaced out over a period of three months. Each session is about an hour or less. After you’ve finished your three sessions, you might need one every year just to maintain your results. However, you can help maintain your results, or even improve on them, by performing pelvic floor exercises.
Is it painful?
ThermiVa® was designed with your total comfort in mind. Most patients are concerned that they’ll feel some pain during their treatments, but like them, you’ll be pleasantly surprised, too. You won’t need iv sedation, local anesthesia or sedation anesthesia because it’s that comfortable.
The device is temperature controlled, which means that the registered nurse performing your treatment can adjust the temperature to be comfortable for you, but still effective. Our patients describe ThermiVa® as a warm massage of the vaginal walls and rest of the genital area. It is very comfortable. In fact, the most common thing our patients say is how relaxing the treatment is. Some patients even fall asleep during the procedure, which means that they were so relaxed that they felt no discomfort at all!
In the time this technology has been available and among the thousands of women who have had the treatment performed, there have been no reported infections, burns, blisters or damage inflicted to the nerves and organs. As a result, it is far safer than any surgical options that rejuvenate the female genitalia. That’s why it’s become so popular!
I’ve just had a baby. When can I start my treatments?
Because ThermiVa® is so gentle, non-ablative and minimally invasive, you can start getting treatments six weeks after you’ve delivered a baby. As a matter of fact, it won’t impact your recovery from giving birth and can actually help you recover from the experience faster.
You should know that your results might be affected by having another child, but fortunately, you can reclaim your results by simply getting another treatment.
How much does ThermiVa® cost?
The cost of your treatments depends on several factors and your concern.
