What is ThermiVa?
ThermiVa is an in-office, non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure that can be used to tighten both external labial tissues and internal vaginal tissues, depending upon the area where improvement is desired. Through the application of radiofrequency energy, ThermiVa gently heats the targeted areas to stimulate the body’s own collagen and reduce laxity.
What is the importance of Collagen and how will the ThermiVa help?
Collagen is a protein that makes your skin firm and elastic. The natural aging process can diminish collagen. When the skin has less collagen, it can lose its youthful appearance. By using radiofrequency energy, skin is heated to stimulate and re-build your body’s own collagen, naturally.
What are the benefits of ThermiVa?
- External Tightening of the Vulvar/Labial: Many women wish to enhance the appearance of their labia and vulva or diminish the physical discomfort and/or embarrassment they feel when wearing tighter clothing or performing certain activities. ThermiVa tightens the labial tissues, resulting in a smoother, firmer, more symmetrical appearance.
- Internal Tightening: ThermiVa tightens the vagina at the opening and the full length of the vagina, diminishing laxity that is detectable by the patient and partner. Many women experience diminished sexual sensation because of excessive stretching of the vagina, which commonly occurs after vaginal birth or due to aging. The restoration of firmness to this area improves sexual pleasure for many couples.
- Increased sexual satisfaction: Patients can expect increased vaginal sensitivity, more coordinated and stronger muscular contractions, and the ability to achieve stronger orgasms in a shorter time period.
- Increased vaginal lubrication
- Reduced leaking
What can I expect during a ThermiVa treatment?
Each session lasts between 30 and 45 minutes. A complete treatment package consists of three treatments performed about four weeks apart. This treatment requires no downtime, so patients can return to their regular activities the same day, including work, exercise, and intercourse, immediately after treatment.
Will the ThermiVa treatment be painful?
There is virtually no pain involved with ThermiVa. In fact, most patients say it feels like a warm massage. There are other feminine rejuvenation treatments on the market. Those treatments use a more aggressive ablative laser and are said to be uncomfortable to the point of being painful and often require downtime. That is why at OBGYN Associates of Lancaster, we chose ThermiVa. We want our patients to see results with no downtime and to feel as comfortable as possible during treatment.
