What is ThermiVa®?
ThermiVa® is a completely non-surgical procedure done to rejuvenate the feminine structures using radiofrequency energy. No anesthesia is required, and there is no downtime, so patients can return to their everyday activities directly after treatment. Three separate treatments are needed over a period of three months to provide optimal results.
How Does ThermiVa® Work?
Radiofrequency energy is delivered to the labia or inside the vagina using a special probe. The radiofrequency energy gently heats the tissues, tightening the area as well as stimulating nerves to restore themselves. This stimulates collagen formation as well as increases blood flow. Treatment takes around 30 minutes and is done in-office.
Who is a Good Candidate for ThermiVa®?
Good candidates are women who are experience vaginal dryness or atrophy, urinary leakage, orgasmic dysfunction, or wish to improve the aesthetic appearance of the labia majora. Patients who are pregnant or an infection around the treatment are should not receive ThermiVa® treatments. A consultation with Dr. Berman can help to determine whether this treatment can benefit you.
Although some results may be seen directly after treatment, it commonly takes several months to see the full effects.
