ThermiVa: What is The Downtime?

Is there any downtime after ThermiVa? Will I need to take any time off of work?

No Downtime

Thank you for your question. The beauty of using ThermiVa is that you see experience results with no downtime necessary. All activities can be resumed the same day, including work, exercise, and intercourse. Because it is a non-invasive, in office treatment the majority of women experience no “recovery” period. In rare cases, some women have reported very light spotting that lasts less than 24 hours after treatment.

In addition, Many women say that in addition to having no downtime, they notice initial results immediately, with full results after the third treatment in a series of three.

I hope this helps.

What’s wonderful about ThermiVa is that there is no downtime. It is totally non-invasive and there is absolutely no pain. Anesthesia is never necessary. You can resume all activities right after, including sexual activity.

Thermi-Va for vaginal tightening, No downtime

The benefits of this procedure is that it can be performed in the office, no anesthesia, no down time and is well tolerated by all patients. This procedure has been very popular amongst my patients that are trying to avoid surgery for vaginal tightening.

Downtime With ThermiVa

There is absolutely NO downtime with ThermiVa treatments. Typically, the external labia will appear slightly swollen and pink in appearance for the first 2-3 hours after a treatment. Patients may resume their normal exercise routine, are able to have intercourse and may submerge in water immediately following their treatment.

The typical protocol for ThermiVa treatments at my practice is 3 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart. I tell my patients that many women see improvement in vaginal tightening after the first treatment, but that optimal results will be observed 3 months after the third treatment.

There is no downtime after having any ThermiVa treatments. Many patients schedule them during the work day or in between things and they are able to go back to their normal day. It's also possible to resume sexual relations with your partner the same day or night as a treatment.

ThermiVa - No DownTime

ThermiVa is such a wonderful procedure - the procedure itself is painless and there is no downtime.  Clients can return to work, working out, and intercourse the same day, with the exception of spotting (which is rare), in which case it is recommended to wait 24 hours after the spotting has stopped for intercourse.

No Downtime with ThermiVa

There is no downtime after a ThermiVa procedure is performed. Patients can resume sexual activity the same day. There is no pain after treatment. 

Consult with your physician for the best care and instructions with your ThermiVa treatment. 

No downtime with ThermiVa

ThermiVa is a very well tolerated procedure with no downtime. The procedure is performed in the office without anesthesia and takes between 30-60 minutes. It is very well tolerated with patients experiencing only a heat sensation. There are no restrictions after, although some patients have experienced a small increase in discharge for the first 24 hours. The effects of the procedure can start to be experienced within the first few days, and continue to build over the following weeks. Current recommendations are 3 treatments performed about 1 month apart and a follow up treatment between 6 months and 1 year.
