Is the clitoris treated as well in ThermiVa?

Treat the clitoris?
Yes, the clitoris is treated as part of the overall treatment. I examine and evaluate each patient to determine their needs and goals. So we may focus additional time and attention to specific areas during treatment based on the patients needs. No patient receives the exact same ThermiVa treatment at our practice. Treatment is individualised. For skin comfort, we always recommend shaving at least 24 hours prior or waxing at least 5 days prior to treatment. Only the areas to be treated need be shaved or waxed as the wand must make good contact with the skin for best results.
ThermiVa and the Clitoris
ThermiVa energy is gently applied to the entire vaginal area, inside and out. The clitoris is not 'specifically' targeted but is included in the area of treatment. The sensation for most is warm and pleasing. If hair is in the way, the wand can't make the best contact with the skin - which is necessary for the device to do what it does!
ThermiVa is used to heat the tissues surrounding the clitoris
ThermiVa is used to heat the tissues surrounding the clitoris but not the clitoris itself. During the procedure this is not or should not be painful. Hair should be trimmed/shaved flush with the skin in the lower pubic area and on the labia if present to allow for proper heat transfer if this area is to be treated.

The clitoris is a priority for most women having ThermiVa
Hello and thank you for asking a very important question about ThermiVa treatments. To answer best, Yes, the clitoris and the surrounding area is treated with ThermiVa. Treatment is comfortable and temperature controlled, and by treating the clitoris, ThermiVa can greatly improve sensation. Patients may or may not have hair present during treatment, and we may recommend that you shave near the labia before treatment so as to have best contact with the wand. There is no need to remove all pubic hair.
I’m excited for you to move forward with ThermiVa and wish you the best!

ThermiVa and the Clitoris, Hair Removal
Thank you for asking this important question. During ThermiVa treatments, the area directly around the clitoris is treated, but not the clitoris directly. The hair is removed in the treatment area to help with even heat transfer during the procedure. A small amount of residual hair will not affect the treatment. Hair can be regrown between treatments, but should be mostly removed for each treatment.
The procedure includes treatment of the clitoral area. A warm sensation is experienced by most patients, though it is rarely painful. There is no downtime from this treatment and many report improved sexual experience as a result.
Thermiva does treat clitoral area
ThermiVa is the first thermal-controlled, non-invasive procedure capable of tightening both the inner vaginal canal and the outer labia majora and minora, which includes the clitoral area. Thermiva is a pain free procedure that requires no down time whatsoever. We do recommend shaving before the procedure so we can get maximum contact with the tissue.
During ThermiVa treatments, the inner and outer portions of the vagina are treated, including the clitoris. It is recommended to remove hair in the treated areas 1-2 days before the ThermiVa treatment.
