Understanding the ThermiVa


Understanding the ThermiVA for Internal and External Vaginal Rejuvenation:

The ThermiVA is an attachment for the base radio frequency generator, called ThermiRF.
This technology utilizes the "Science of Heat" via radio frequency to induce very controlled and monitored heat to the tissues topically. It is critical to heat the tissue to a specific temperature to achieve tissue tightening by stimulating collagen (the fibers that hold our cells and tissues together) contraction. The technology that sets the ThermiRF apart is the Thermistor that precisely monitors and regulates the temperature of the tissues.

Accurately monitored specific temperatures are utilized for different outcomes. For example, dermal heating of 42 to 45 degrees centigrade triggers an inflammatory response that stimulates collagen, elastin, and fibroblast activity. Further examples are temperatures of 85 degrees that can ablate nerves as in the frown lines, 70 degrees destroys fat cells, and 60 degrees can achieve structural tightening. Temperatures of 45 degrees tighten skin and mucosa.

The ThermiVA is specifically designed to apply and monitor heat to the vaginal area, including the external genitalia resulting in up to 50% tightening of the tissues. The result is immediate tightening of the labia majora and minora and the vagina.

This also results in reduced urinary stress incontinence, a problem for women following multiple or traumatic pregnancies and deliveries. Stress incontinence can occur during laughing, coughing, sneezing, sports, exercising and more, a frustrating complication which affects many women. Another positive result of the treatments is thickened mucosa resulting in better lubrication. Some women report reduction in discomfort and better orgasims.

Unlike laser treatments for vaginal rejuvenation, treatments with the ThermiVA are painless, require no recovery time, and it tightens both the external and internal tissues. Also, no anesthesia is used or needed, and all activities can be resumed at once. Generally, 3 treatments are needed, although improvement can be seen after the first treatment.
