With Thermiva, what is the length of time between treatments, is 6 weeks to long to wait before the next treatment?

ThermiVa treatments scheduled 4-6 weeks apart has delivered outstanding results for patients

Our clinic that focuses on feminine rejuvenation sees most patients every 4 weeks between ThermiVa treatments, however those who have not been on the exact schedule have reported consistently positive feedback. We always encourage patients to commit to their treatments during the initial therapy.  We've also seen patients who choose to purchase a treatment every few months as they notice symptoms or want to maintain the results and continue with visible improvement as well.

I hope my feedback is helpful to you.

How long can I wait between thermiva treatments?

The original studies with this technology had patients waiting four weeks between treatments.  Three treatments were advised.  I don't think it makes that much of a difference whether its four weeks or eight weeks or even longer.  I think you can listen to your body and see how you respond.  I have had some patients get one every three months and do very well.  I have had some patients get one treatment and be satisfied.  I had one patient whose husband was deployed get one every four weeks for six months to get ready for his return.  Thermiva is good for vaginal health and sexual response.  There is not one answer that fits everyone.

4-6 wks.

The 4-6 wk time frame between each treatment is the ideal time to ensure maximal tissue growth and regeneration.

ThermiVA- length of time between treatments

We schedule them one month apart.  The recommendation is to repeat the treatment after 4-6 weeks.  So I would not wait any longer than 6 weeks.  Best wishes!

Time Between Treatments

Standard protocol recommends 3 treatments each done 4 to 6 weeks apart. We do not recommend waiting past 6 weeks, but up until that point is okay.

Thank you for your question.  The typical time between treatments with THERMIVa is 4 – 6 weeks so you are fine to wait 6 weeks before your next treatment.  Most patients will receive a total of three treatments spaced over three to four months.  The studies done with THERMIVa show that patients receive the best results when they have a total of three treatments within this time frame.  Maintenance treatments will be every 3 – 6 months depending on the condition you are treating.

ThermiVa - How Often?

Four to six weeks is the sweet spot between treatments. Any longer than that and you may lose the momentum of the boosting the tissue changes needed for a great result. Of course, ALL three treatments are needed.
