ThermiVa is a non-surgical procedure that was first used about 10 years ago that tightens and rejuvenates the appearance of the labia and vagina.
As women age or give birth vaginally, their vaginal muscles can relax excessively, which can result in diminished sensations when having sex while post-menopause women who experience uncomfortable dryness can also be helped by this procedure. Meanwhile, some women get it done to tighten the labia for cosmetic or comfort reasons. Incontinence can be helped as well.
How Does It 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 30 minutes or less over three separate treatments in a three-month time span. Some get it done during their lunch break.
How Much Downtime Should I Expect?
You should experience none. As soon as you leave the office, you can return to your normal activities, including having sex. However, results are not normally noticed until about two weeks have passed, but they do usually start appearing 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.
ThermiVa Benefits Explained
Labial tightening reduces any sag and results in smoother skin and more comfort in a wider variety of clothing.
Vaginal tightening reduces laxity, which often results in greater sensations when having sex.
This procedure generally decreases dryness; many women who had used hormones for this purpose no longer needed to after having this procedure done.
Incontinence can be reduced by this procedure, and some women report no longer needing to use things like bladder slings after having it done.
How Long Do These ThermiVa Benefits Last?
These benefits 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 procedures, the primary one being that they both reduce the size of the labia. However, a significant difference is that labiaplasty is a surgery procedure that involves the removal of some of the labia minora, and it has no effect on the vagina or incontinence. ThermiVa also tends to cost less.
I Want to Get It Done Now
As long as you have not given birth in the past six weeks, you should be able to do so. Still breastfeeding a baby is not a hindrance to having it done.
How Do I Prepare for My Treatment?
You should shave the area around the vagina and labia as well as possible. You do not need to shave the mons pubis.
This groundbreaking non-surgical therapy that revitalizes vaginal appearance and function should only be performed a qualified medical professional. ThermiVa safely, effectively and painlessly—without any anesthesia or downtime—can help you to achieve a physical and aesthetic vaginal transformation in just three treatments, with many patients experiencing a significant change immediately after their first procedure.
