How successful are thermiva treatments?

Success of ThermiVa
Thermiva treatments are highly successful in my experience. ThermiVa can be used to treat both the inner and outer labia. As a general rule the outer labia seems to shrink and show more significant improvement than the inner labia, but both are usually improved just to different degrees. ThermiVa is as advertised- a quick treatment 30-45 minuets, done without pain or discomfort in almost all patients (so no anesthesia needed), no downtime (leave the office and go back to all activities) and in the two years I have been doing this no adverse side effects, or problems with my patients or any other Physicians I have talked with. It is the one procedure I know will give me good results without problems.
Successful! Also depends on your goals...
Thank you for your question and interest in ThermiVa. A typical treatment will treat the inside of the vagina for about 20 minutes and the outer/inner labia for 10 minutes total. The amount of time per treatment area can be adjusted slightly depending on your specific concern (stress incontinence, painful intercourse etc). We do treat both the inner and outer labia during a treatment session. We have seen that the outer labia (labia majora) respond by plumping up and increasing in fullness. The fullness tends to get better with each treatment. In regards to the inner labia (labia minora) they will tighten very slightly, but if you desire a drastic change in the length or appearance of your labia minora, then you may need to explore the option of labiaplasty. We recommend a series of three treatments spaced 1 month apart for optimal results with 1 follow up treatment per year thereafter. Many patients like to try ThermiVa treatments in addressing the appearance of their labia prior to surgery, as it is more cost effective, without downtime, and pain free! There is minimal, if any, risk associated with the procedure, but it cannot be performed under certain circumstances (active STD, pregnancy, pacemaker etc). I would recommend meeting with a provider familiar/experienced with ThermiVa, so that your specific situation and goals can be discussed. Best of Luck!
ThermiVa does address both the inner and outer labia. It is done in a series of 3 treatments with the option for further treatments yearly if desired. It is a procedure that is performed in the office with no downtime. Specific concerns should be discussed prior to the treatment.

Benefits of ThermiVA
Our patients have been thrilled with their thermiVa results. They have report positive improvements/changes in the inner vaginal canal, as well as the outer vaginal labia. For most patients, we are recommending a package of 3 treatments, one month apart and maintenance treatments approximately once per year. Your provider will review your medical history to determine if you are a good candidate and there are no contraindications present.
Best of luck,
