We are excited to offer Thermiva, a nonsurgical way to rejuvenate the vaginal area, from the inside and out! Thermiva is a non-surgical way to accomplish inner vaginal tightening and outer vulva (or labia majora) tightening.
Even better is that it helps with stress incontinence, or urgency and leaking, as well as vaginal moisture. Patients have been really excited these results! Before patients had to rely on surgery or hormones to accomplish these results.
What is Thermiva (Vaginal Rejuvenation)
Thermiva is a radiofrequency technique, and radiofrequency tightening has been around for a long time, previously used for face and body skin tightening. This application of radiofrequency, however, is a newer application, and thus far a very promising one.
It is a treatment that requires no numbing medicine or injections, and simply feels like a warm sensation on the vulva if treating outer labia laxity. If treating the vaginal canal itself, it is even more comfortable.
The treatment acts to improve blood flow and collagen production to the areas treated. (This treatment is not the same as CO2 lasers to the vagina or vulva, which can be quite painful on the outer vulva and requires numbing medication). At the end of a single treatment one can notice the results, and 3 treatments are recommended for optimal results, spaced about 4 weeks apart.
Who is a candidate?
- Laxity or looseness of the vulva, or labia
- Stretching out of the vagina, common after childbirth
- Vaginal dryness
- Urinary leaking or urgency
Who is not a candidate?
Anyone with exposed vaginal mesh
How long does the treatment take?
Outer area (vulva, or labia majora) takes about 10-15 minutes, and the vagina (including treatment for urinary leaking or urgency) takes another 10-15 minutes on average. No numbing is required, so the only additional time to factor in is the initial consultation.
