Vaginal Rejuvenation Q & A
How does ThermiVa® revitalize vaginal tissue?
ThermiVa is a radiofrequency device that improves the appearance and function of vaginal tissue. Dr. Longoria uses a small, handheld device to heat the internal and external vaginal tissue as well as any surrounding skin. The probe that emits the energy is sterile and noninvasive.
The radiofrequency is specially calibrated to treat tissue in these delicate regions, so you stay comfortable during treatment but achieve firming results. ThermiVa treatments promote the development of collagen, a major protein in tissue that boosts strength and tautness. Loss of collagen is associated with age and stress and contributes to vaginal atrophy.
What effects can I expect with ThermiVa vaginal revitalization?
ThermiVa technology is a revolutionary way to address issues associated with vaginal atrophy. The treatment can:
- Shrink and tighten the inner vaginal lips and labia majora tissue
- Reduce vaginal dryness
- Improve orgasmic function
- Tighten the vaginal canal
- Reduce urinary incontinence
ThermiVa is noninvasive, meaning you get results without surgery or downtime. It’s the ideal solution for women who have vaginal discomfort due to childbirth or menopause.
Who is a candidate for ThermiVa treatments?
Women aged 30-60 with vaginal discomfort are usually good candidates. Symptoms that suggest ThermiVa can help include:
- Challenges achieving orgasm
- Vaginal dryness that leads to pain during sex
- Stress incontinence or leakage of urine when you jump, sneeze, or laugh
- Vaginal tissue that appears stretched and pulled in all directions
- A camel-toe appearance when wearing tight leggings or pants
ThermiVa procedures are performed in-office and require no cutting, burning, injections, or sutures. You need no anesthesia or local numbing cream. After ThermiVa treatment, you can go right back to all your daily activities. ThermiVa treatments are comfortable and not painful, either.
How many ThermiVa treatments will I need?
You’ll notice improvement in your vaginal tissue’s strength and sensation after just one treatment, however a series of three treatments is recommended for optimal results. Each session lasts 15-30 minutes and are spaced about one month apart.
You don’t need to plan any downtime following ThermiVa treatments and you can even engage in sexual activity the very same day.
