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

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.


Time between treatments is 4-6 weeks, we recommend you don't wait longer than 6 weeks.   Best of luck!

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.

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.

Time between ThermiVa treatments

The recommended time between treatments is 1 month apart based on the original study for a total of 3 treatments.The treatment last about 30 minutes and patients report improvement of their symptoms with each treatment. Although we don't have exact data on how long is too long to wait between treatments, in my opinion waiting a little longer (like 6 weeks) between treatments should not interfere with the results. Good luck.

How far apart are ThermiVa treatments?

That is a great question. Typically 3 treatments are performed 4 weeks apart. Having the treatment at 6 weeks shouldn't interfere with its benefits. Best wishes.

Time in between treatment for ThermiVa

It is recommended to have it done every 4 weeks but we have had great results with every 6 weeks as well.  

Make sure to follow the at least 3 recommended courses of treatment.

ThermiVa - Time Between Treatments

Thank you for your question. Recommended time between treatments is 4 weeks for best results. However we have had patients come in around 5-6 weeks due to travel/work reasons amongst others and they have still experienced and benefit from the wonderful results ThermiVa has to offer. You're not compromising your results very much by doing it at the 6 week mark, but do your best to keep future treatments within the recommended time frame. Hope this helps!

Length of time between Thermi Va treatments

The studies done with Thermi Va consisted of 3 treatments one month apart but in my opinion extending the interval to 6 weeks would be fine. It is important that during your treatments,  the maximal tolerated temperature for internal (45-47 degrees) and external labia majora (42-45 degrees) are achieved.
