ThermiVa is a non-surgical procedure that was first introduced approximately 10 years ago that tightens and rejuvenates the appearance of the labia and vagina. This groundbreaking non-surgical therapy that revitalizes vaginal appearance and function should only be performed by a qualified medical professional.
As women age or give birth vaginally, their vaginal muscles can relax excessively, which can result in diminished sensations when having sex while post-menopausal women who experience uncomfortable dryness can also be helped by this procedure. Meanwhile, some women have the procedure done to tighten the labia for cosmetic or comfort reasons. Incontinence can be helped as well.
ThermiVa benefits explained
- Labial tightening reduces any sag and results in smoother skin and overall comfort of the area.
- Vaginal tightening reduces laxity, which often results in greater sensation when having sex.
- The procedure generally decreases dryness; many women who relied on hormones for this purpose no longer needed to after having this procedure done.
- Incontinence can be reduced, and some women report no longer needing to use things like bladder slings after having it done.
How does ThermiVa work?
Thermal energy is delivered via radio waves emanating from a soft plastic probe, the size of a tampon, to the vagina or labia or both. The procedure, which is similar to a transvaginal ultrasound, is a comfortable one for most women as the device is slowly moved where it needs to go, heating those areas at a comfortable temperature and in a controlled manner. It generally takes an hour or less over three separate treatments in a three-month time span.
How much downtime should I expect?
Immediately after the procedure, you can return to your normal activities, including having sex. However, optimal results are not noticed until about two weeks have passed, but they are usually apparent after the first ThermiVa treatment.
Note that you may experience the need to urinate more often in the days following your procedure, but that is only temporary.
How long do ThermiVa results last?
Results generally last about a year, but the procedures can be easily repeated at that time.
ThermiVa vs Labiaplasty
ThermiVa vs Labiaplasty is a comparison that many make due to the similarities between these two procedures. The primary one being that they both reduce the size of the labia. However, a significant difference is that labiaplasty is a surgery that involves the removal of some of the labia minora, and it has no effect on the vagina or incontinence. ThermiVa also tends to be more cost-effective.
How soon after giving birth can ThermiVa be performed?
As long as you have not given birth in the past six weeks, you should be a candidate for ThermiVa treatment.
