How ThermiVa Works

ThermiVa safely transfers heat via radiofrequency to affected tissues, in this case being the external and internal vaginal tissues. It does no damage to the skin as the heat is directed to deeper tissue layer. Radiofrequency treatments have long been used for muscle and tissue healing by promoting new collagen production which leads to softer, tighter tissues.  It can also be used for facial skin tightening and wrinkle reduction.

ThermiVa How does it work ?


In the right candidate: female with multiple pregnancies stretching the vaginal wall; or those with excess external labia or labial laxity can benefit from ThermiVA. ThermiVA works in a similar manner to other areas of the body whereby Radio Frequency energy heats up the tissue in order to get both immediate tightening and long term buildup of collagen.This process-over 3 treatments brings successful improvement to these areas. It requires no anesthesia; is performed in the office and takes about 30 minutes.

ThermiVa What works for vaginal rejuvenation

Thanks for your question about ThermiVa.

ThermiVa uses temperature controlled radiofrequency energy to gently heat the tissue.  It has been shown to increase collagen formation and also increase blood flow and lubrication to the vagina.  It is FDA approved for skin tightening and has shown positive outcomes for improving the appearance of the vagina and promoting increased tightening of the tissue, improved lubrication, enhanced sexual satisfaction and also with some patients reporting less urinary stress incontinence or bladder leakage.  It has been a great treatment in our office.

The science behind ThermiVa

The small probe designed for ease of applications supplies radio frequency to the vaginal tissue.  Radio frequency  is delivered to  very specific placed in the vagina and delivers heat.  The heat does not damage the skin of the vagina.  In fact most women describe the procedure as a hot stone message.

Radio frequency stimulated the recruitment of collagen.  Collagen is the key factor it creates tightening of the tissue and increase in moisture.

Vaginal Rejuvenation with ThermiVa

More and more women are speaking up about issues that they have trouble talking about ... even with friends.  I am so happy to be an advocate for women's health and helping women improve certain issues they are concerned about.  Female vaginal rejuvenation is performed using different techniques and are chosen based on each individual woman's concerns.  ThermiVa is one way that address both the internal and external genital area.  This is a nonsurgical technique that applies heat through radiofrequency to the tissues.  By heating the tissues to a certain temperature for a certain period of time, it improves the collagen remodeling and can improve the lining of the genitalia - both inside and outside.  The additional heat increases circulation to the area being treated.  Between the increased circulation and stimulation of cells with heat, women in my practice have had an improvement in lubrication, sensation, feeling of tightness both of the outer labia and vaginal canal.  Some have had a decrease in urinary urgency, the feeling where you have to go to the bathroom all the time.  For almost all women, three treatments a month apart are required to obtain the benefits.  Maintenance treatment is needed as this is not a permanent fix. Your body will continue to change and age, therefore, stimulation of the tissue will be needed in the future to maintain the youthful look and feel of the genitalia.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for your question, Dr. Eagan

How Does ThermiVa Work

ThermiVa works by delivering radiofrequency energy to the labia or inside the vagina. Using a specially designed probe, RF energy gently heats the tissues to stimulate the production of collagen, tightening tissue and restoring nerves. Treatment takes about 30 minutes and is completely non-surgical. There is also no downtime associated with ThermiVa.

Technology for tightening up

ThermiVa tightens the skin and tissues of the internal and external vaginal area.Treatments can help with the following issues that many women face.  

  • Stress urinary incontinence (including stopping leakage from coughing, sneezing and exercising)
  • Orgasmic dysfunction
  • Laxity of the vaginal tissues, including the muscles and outer skin
  • Atrophic vaginitis or Vaginal atrophy (vaginal dryness and inflammation of the vagina and outer urinary tract caused by lack of estrogen)
  • Post-menopause issues, including dryness and painful intercourse

 
Thermiva applications use radiofrequency energy to gently heat tissue. The ThermiVa electrode is designed for applications including all aspects of the vaginal anatomy.  This helps to tighten up things down there and  build up collagen, providing satisfaction to you and your partner.  My patients have been very satisfied with their results from as little as 2-3 treatments.  Find a reputable practitioner and office that specializes in the procedure itself.  :)

Please explain the science behind ThermiVa, what makes this an effective treatment?

Thermi is a radiofrequency energy which delivers heat to skin and soft tissue to cause secondary tightening.

It's effective in vaginal rejuvenation of both external and internal tissues and can also assist in patients affected by minor urinary stress incontinence.

Initially 3 -4 treatments are recommended with subsequent yearly single treatments.

ThermiVA works by heating and thickening tissue

ThermiVA is a radio frequency device that heats tissues up (whether that's the external labia or internal vaginal tissues), tightening them up a bit, increases blood flow and ultimately thickens tissues by promoting collagen growth. 

The immediate heating tightens and helps you feel - well, tighter.  that means that it can help shrink external labia tissues making them a bit smaller. And it can help your vaginal tissues feel tighter just the same

The increase in blood flow helps to improve lubrication which may be anproblem for some after menopause, and frequently before as well. This can also help in producing more fluid during intimate situations and marking them feel better

Long term the collagen build up helps to thicken the tissues of the vagina that may have thinned out over the years producing more volume for these tissues. 

Different parts of each of these effects have also been noted to help 

1. Reduce mild bladder leakage that is common as we age - most women we treat see differences after even the fist treatment.

2. Increase sensitivity during intimacy possibly from Improve the overall tone of the vagina muscles or tissues or increased lubrication (depending upon your situation)

The procedure only takes about 30 minutes per session. A full treatment requires 3 sessions about a month apart. Best part is that it's completely comfortable and only feels like a warm massage. The even better part is that you'll probably notice changes and improvement after even just the first session!

How Does the ThermiVa Work

ThermiVa works by delivering radiofrequency (thermal energy) via a small probe to both the internal vaginal canal and the external labia. The tissue is heated to specific temperatures, encouraging the growth of new collagen, increased blood flow and improved nerve supply. ThermiVa is FDA approved for skin tightening, however, patients also report increased sensation, moisture and improvement in symptoms of stress urinary incontinence.

The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes and requires NO downtime. The typical protocol for ThermiVa treatments 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.


Cheers!
