ThermiVa: When Do You See The Results?

Results for ThermiVA
It depends on what you are using ThermiVA to treat. I see immediate results for improvement of labia major laxity and urinary incontinence very consistently . There are variable results on when the results are seen for tightness, increased sensation or increase moisture. Many women do see some results after the first treatment but others see the results only after the second treatment. It depends on the age of the patient and the degree of severity of the symptoms. The postmenopausal woman with long standing dryness to me takes the longest time to see a major difference. But they all respond, and its important to discuss other treatments that can help with the specific reason you might the treatment for as there may be other adjunct treatment options such as PRP, hormone replacement etc that can help as well.
Some patients notice a difference even immediately following a treatment. The maximum effectiveness will be noticed a month or two after a series of 3 procedures are completed. Maintenance treatments are recommended at about 8-12 months.
Our patients have noted improvements in tightening (internal and external), incontinence, sensation, and lubrication after one treatment. Most of these results being noted immediately or within days after the 1st treatment. We recommend 3 treatments, one month apart, to assure the longevity and completion of these effects.

There are great anecdotal reports for many patients with quick results. I wouldn't, however, be discouraged if you don't fall into this category. The more severe one's symptoms are, the more likely it will take more sessions for ideal results.
Immediate results with ThermiVa
When to expect results from ThermiVa
The initial treatment course includes one treatment every month for 3 months. Many women see results even after the first 30 minute session. Greater results are seen after the second treatment. Ultimately, maximum benefit is achieved 90 days from the first treatment (or roughly a month after the third treatment).
When do you see results with ThermiVa
ThermiVa treatment is recommended as a series of 3 treatments one month apart. Most of my patients report improvement in their incontinence as early as the very next day after their first treatment. There is also an immediate improvement in appearance of labia. Vaginal tightening and increase in lubrication may take few weeks to improve.

Depends on your endpoint
If you are looking to improve your sex life, patients often see an improvement the night after the procedure. Vaginal dryness and stress incontinence can take longer to improve. Good luck.
You should see as well as feel result immediately after treatment. That is one of the beauty of ThermiVa.
When To Expect Results With ThermiVa
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.
From there, I like to reevaluate my patients after 3 months to see how well they responded to the treatment. Annual maintenance is recommended but the maintenance phase is different for every woman - ranging anywhere from every 9-18 months. Discuss your results with your physician. They'll be able to guide you to the best recommendation.
