What is ThermiVA?
Childbirth and age can change the appearance of the outer vaginal area and loosen vaginal tissue, affecting sexual response. ThermiVA is a non-invasive procedure used to restore the vaginal wall without the need for surgical intervention. ThermiVA uses radio frequency technology to deliver heat through the skin. During treatment, the heat is applied, penetrating deep into the tissue layers. This causes the labia and vaginal tissues to contract, prompting fresh, healthy collagen growth within the structure for increased flexibility and firmness.
Why Should I Choose to Have a ThermiVA Treatment?
A ThermiVA treatment might be beneficial if you are bothered by the changes in the appearance of your vulvovaginal area. It can reduce several problems associated with tissue fatigue, with remarkable improvements, including:
- Firm and tighten stretched or sagging labia
- Increase tightness of vaginal tissue
- Reduce urinary stress or incontinence
- Restore natural vaginal lubrication
- Reduce unpleasant sensations or pain experienced in intercourse
- Resolve discomfort associated with excess hanging tissue
- Improve outer vaginal appearance
What Can I Expect From a ThermiVA Procedure?
Once it is determined that ThermiVA is right for you, the procedure will take place in a comfortable, private room. There is nothing you need to do ahead of time to prepare for the procedure. You will not need anesthetics, as the treatment is completely pain-free. You can expect to feel a warm sensation as the wand is passed over the area and the radio frequency energy heats the deeper tissues. The procedure is non-invasive, and you can return to work or your daily routine immediately following treatment.
Will The Results Be Noticeable?
Each patient is different. Some experience initial results in 24 to 48 hours after the procedure. Others have reported seeing positive results at the one or two week mark. It will take several weeks to reach your optimal results as the body produces new collagen, and achieves a firming, tightening effect.
How Long Will the Results Last?
The results of a ThermiVA treatment are cumulative. After treatment, the body requires some time to naturally build collagen. Most patients will see maximum improvements in between six months to one year. To continue to maintain results, follow-up sessions are recommended every 12 to 18 months.
When Do You Know if You are a Candidate for ThermiVA?
Over the course of a woman’s life, vaginal muscles can stretch and become slack due to childbirth, menopause, and aging. If these issues have negatively impacted urinary control or your enjoyment when engaging in sexual intercourse, then a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment can be life-changing.
How Much Does a ThermiVA Treatment Cost?
Each treatment is customized to benefit the individual patient. When you visit Princeton Plastic Surgeons, we can advise you of the cost in your case and provide information on easy financing, so you can get the treatment you need.
