Does ThermiVa Treat Leaky Bladder Symptoms?

ThermiVa Treats Urinary Leakage and Urgency
ThermiVa is a good option in treating patients with mild to moderate stress incontinence and over-active bladder symptoms. If symptoms exceed the mild to moderate category then surgery is likely a better option.
That's a great question and yes, ThermiVa does treat that problem in patients. Many of our patients have been very pleased with their results.

No more Leaking
Absolutely, most women with mild to moderate urinary incontinence experience
dramatic improvement after several treatments from ThermiVa. In our experience
it usually takes 3 treatments to get good results but some women experience
improvement more quickly. Get back to running, laughing, coughing and exercising
and stay dry!
ThermiVa and Stress Incontinence
Although not the original intent of the treatment, many of our patients have reported significant improvement with stress incontinence. Since ThermiVa uses RF technology to heat the area of the vagina improving elasticity and increasing collagen production in the area, it helps provide more support to the urethra and bladder areas that are right above the vagina. With more support, there is less leaking from stress activities such as sneezing, coughing, exercising etc.
Leaky Bladders: ThermiVa is effective, but see a specialist to be sure.
Thank you for one of the most important questions about ThermiVa. ThermiVa has been shown to improve mild to moderate stress urinary incontinence (the leaks that come with coughing/sneezing/jumping jacks). My patients have been extremely happy with their results with many having a complete resolution of their symptoms. If you require large diapers that are getting soaked, then ThermiVa is probably not a treatment that will give you satisfactory results.
In cases of leaky bladders, it is best to see a board-certified gynecologist with experience in pelvic dysfunction/urinary incontinence who performs ThermiVa to see what treatment is correct for you.
Can ThermiVa help with leaky bladder symptoms?
Thank you for your question. ThermiVa uses radiofrequency technology to gently heat the labia and vaginal walls. Patients in clinical trials also showed a tightening of the lower bladder wall which can help diminish leaky bladder symptoms, which is a common problem for many women after childbirth and also with exercise and age.
ThermiVA Helps Leaky Bladder Symptoms
With the result of vaginal tightening also brings reduced bladder leakage symptoms. Once the tissue is restored and tightened, the leaking is greatly reduced. Women don’t have to fear sneezing, coughing or jumping up and down anymore!
