ThermiVa Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation

ThermiVa is a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure that uses radio-frequency technology to promote natural collagen production and tissue rejuvenation by application of gentle thermal energy for incontinence treatment. Women will see significant improvement in appearance of external female genitalia (even with one session), tighter vagina, improved lubrication, enhanced orgasms, better urinary control, better vaginal sensation, strengthen pelvic muscles. ThermiVa sessions typically last about 30 minutes. We recommend a series of three treatment for results that last 9-12 months. A few of the benefits of ThermiVa are there is zero downtime, no pain, and discomfort after the procedure.

Throughout a woman’s life, childbirth, weight gain, and even hormone fluctuations can impact the muscles and surrounding tissue of the vagina. In fact, the majority of women will experience some degree of vaginal dryness, loss of elasticity, incontinence, and pelvic discomfort over time. Thanks to a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure called ThermiVa, women can safely and efficiently regain their feminine wellness and relieve a wide range of symptoms caused by urinary and gynecological conditions. ThermiVa utilizes the toning and tightening properties of radiofrequency heat therapy to achieve remarkable results without any need for downtime or discomfort.

Benefits of ThermiVa

ThermiVa is a fairly straightforward procedure, requiring only 30 to 45 minutes of application along the internal and external vaginal anatomy. However, the women’s health benefits for each patient can be extraordinary. As the skin and muscle tissue tightens, nerve function and blood supply improve in the vaginal canal and labia. As a result, women experience both cosmetic and medical vaginal rejuvenation benefits as well as incontinence treatment from ThermiVa, including:

Cosmetic Appearance – Sagging skin, such as the inner and outer labia, is significantly reduced, providing a more youthful appearance and allowing women to feel more comfortable in form-fitting clothing.

Reduced Dryness and Vaginal Atrophy – Radiofrequency energy improves blood circulation in the treated areas, promoting normal function, such as the natural lubrication in the vagina. ThermiVa allows women to regain healthy vaginal moisture without having to rely on hormone therapy. Internal and external vaginal moisture is vital for comfort and overall vaginal rejuvenation.

Reduced Urinary Leakage – Many women who have given birth (either vaginal or C-section) suffer from incontinence because the pelvic muscles may be stretched and weakened. ThermiVa can be used as a mild female incontinence treatment by tightening and firming the tissues under the bladder, reducing stress-related leaks and urge incontinence.

Non-Invasive Sessions – ThermiVa is a completely non-surgical procedure that does not require anesthesia or any recovery period. A new handpiece is used for every patient and the temperature can be adjusted to suit each patient’s comfort level. Patients can receive ThermiVa treatments as early as six weeks after giving birth and can safely and comfortably have sex immediately after their vaginal rejuvenation session.

Long-Lasting Results – With just a few ThermiVa sessions, which take no more than 30 to 45 minutes, patients can experience immediate vaginal rejuvenation that lasts between nine months to two years!

The Advantages of ThermiVa:

  • No incisions necessary
  • Short treatment sessions
  • Improves physical sensation
  • Treats internal and external features (i.e., inner and outer labia and vaginal canal)
  • Improves dryness and laxity
  • No downtime (outpatient procedure; no hospitalization required)
  • Helps reduce or stop urinary incontinence
  • Enhances natural vaginal lubrication
  • Minimizes the risk of pain during sexual intercourse
  • Increases self-confidence

The Disadvantages of ThermiVa:

  • Gradual results
  • Short-term effects (9 to 12 months)
  • Multiple sessions are suggested
  • Retreatment for ThermiVa suggested every 1 to 2 years

Am I a Candidate for ThermiVa Treatments?

You are an ideal candidate for ThermiVa if you are older than 18 years of age and have given vaginal birth to one or more children or are nearing menopause and want a tighter vagina and/or labia. It is also recommended that a woman wait at least 3 to 4 months after giving birth to undergo ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation. If avoiding surgery is one of your top concerns, you may also be an ideal candidate for ThermiVa, as the procedure is non-surgical and does not require general anesthesia or incisions.

Additionally, ThermiVa may prove to be an ideal option for women who experience one or more of the following conditions:

  • Vaginal dryness/chafing/itching
  • Frequent vaginal/urinary tract infections
  • Lack of friction or sensation during sex
  • Painful intercourse

ThermiVa also has been shown to help women reduce or eliminate leaky bladder symptoms (a condition known clinically as stress urinary incontinence) and improve sexual dysfunction/pleasure.

How Does ThermiVa Work for Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation?

ThermiVa is an “S” shaped hand-held device that emits thermistor-regulated radiofrequency energy to safely and gently heat the muscles and skin of the vagina, causing the tissue to contract and become tighter. The ThermiVa hand piece measures approximately 0.5″ in width and is specifically designed with patient comfort in mind. It also features an active tip, i.e. a small metal square on the bottom of the electrode. The active tip ensures safe, effective emission of radiofrequency energy to gently heat vaginal tissue.

For years, radiofrequency energy has been used successfully in cosmetic facial treatments to address the signs of aging. The non-invasive ThermiVa wavelengths penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin and stimulate collagen fiber production, nerve enhancement, and even increased development of blood vessels for healthy, firm tissue.

ThermiVa is a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation outpatient procedure which means no hospitalization is required. Our Los Angeles urologists use thermistor-regulated radiofrequency energy emission to gently heat lax tissue of the labia and/or vaginal canal, causing it to gradually shrink and tighten. Scientists feel the heat causes the denaturation and contraction of collagen fibers, which leads to the observed tissue tightening seen in this vaginal rejuvenation procedure. Collagen contributes heavily to the strength and elasticity of the skin. ThermiVa is administered with the “S”-shaped handpiece with smooth curves for optimal comfort in treating both internal and external female anatomical features such as the inner and outer labia, as well as the vaginal canal.

ThermiVa for Mommy Makeovers

A mommy makeover involves one or more procedures to help a woman address any post-pregnancy body concerns. Common mommy makeover procedures include a tummy tuck, fat removal with liposuction, stretch mark removal, breast enhancement, and cellulite treatments.

ThermiVa treatments may be incorporated into a mommy makeover, too. In fact, some of the reasons why ThermiVa may be a great addition to a mommy makeover include:

  • Immediate Vaginal Rejuvenation: ThermiVa can be administered approximately six weeks after a woman gives birth or between pregnancies.
  • Long-Term Results: The results of a ThermiVa treatment may last up to two years.
  • Limited Maintenance: In most instances, women only need a single follow-up ThermiVa maintenance appointment annually.

Comprehensive Urology is happy to administer ThermiVa to those who want to reap the benefits of a mommy makeover. Our expert urologists can teach you about all aspects of ThermiVa and help you can set realistic treatment expectations. We will also work with you to ensure you can achieve the best-possible ThermiVa treatment results, as quickly as possible.

How Many ThermiVa Sessions Before I See Results?

It is recommended that patients receive at least three ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation treatments over a period of three to four months for the best possible results. However, most patients experience significant improvement after just one ThermiVa treatment.

For the best possible ThermiVa results, patients undergo three sessions of 15 to 30 minutes over a period of 3 months. Patients typically see immediate tissue tightening results followed by more significant results over the next 3 to 4 months with ThermiVa vaginal cosmetic procedures. Patients may enjoy up to 9 months to 2 years of tissue tightening from ThermiVa as the body produces more collagen in the treated area. Follow up treatments are available after 1-2 years.

Improve Appearance, Health and Sexual Function with ThermiVa

Vaginal rejuvenation with ThermiVa provides an overall improvement in skin and muscle tissue, nerve enhancement, and increased blood vessels in the labia and vaginal canal for renewed and strengthened results. Women who have lost elasticity or suffered excessive stretching can regain normal skin and muscle tone that can also improve bladder and orgasmic function with ThermiVA vaginal cosmetic procedures. Additional benefits from ThermiVa include:

  • No need for anesthesia
  • Outpatient procedure
  • No downtime necessary
  • Able to resume sexual activity the same day as ThermiVa treatment
  • Noticeable results after first and second session
  • Reduced urinary leakage
  • Improved vaginal moisture
  • Increased nerve sensitivity
  • Long-lasting results

In order to ensure the best possible outcome that suits each patient’s unique needs, it is strongly recommended to seek ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation therapy from a skilled urologist in Los Angeles who understands a patient’s cosmetic and medical needs. In many cases, ThermiVa (a non-surgical, non-invasive, and non-hormonal vaginal rejuvenation treatment) may provide enough pelvic floor strength and improvement to avoid the need for bladder surgery or prolapse reconstruction surgery.

What to Expect During a ThermiVa Consultation

A ThermiVa consultation enables a urologist to learn about a patient, find out why she is considering ThermiVa, and understand her treatment goals. At this time, a urologist may perform a physical examination and review a patient’s medical history. He or she may may also request specialized tests to help determine if a patient is a viable candidate for ThermiVa.

If a urologist determines a patient is a good candidate for ThermiVa, he or she next will explain the procedure, how it works, and its advantages and disadvantages. A urologist will dedicate time and resources to offer full insights into a ThermiVa treatment. Additionally, a urologist will respond to a patient’s concerns or questions about ThermiVa. This approach enables a patient to determine if ThermiVa is the best course of action to achieve his or her desired vaginal rejuvenation results.

What to Expect During ThermiVa Treatments

No prep work is required for ThermiVa treatments. Oftentimes, a patient will undergo three ThermiVa treatments over the course of a three-month period; each treatment is performed approximately one month apart.

Each ThermiVa treatment is virtually painless, thanks in large part to the use of radiofrequency heat energy. ThermiVa requires no anesthesia, and heat energy is administered via a soft, plastic S shaped device that is moved over the labia and inside the vagina. The device ensures the vagina is gently heated in a controlled manner.

ThermiVa results vary from patient to patient. Some patients report instant improvements following treatment. In most instances, patients see noticeable improvements within about two week of treatment.

ThermiVa results may last for up to one year. At Comprehensive Urology, we’ll help you put together a ThermiVa treatment plan and establish realistic treatment expectations. That way, you’ll know what to expect before, during, and after ThermiVa treatments.

ThermiVa Treatment Recovery

ThermiVa is non-invasive, and as such, does not result in downtime that is commonly associated with surgical procedures. Patients can return to work or everyday activities immediately after a ThermiVa treatment. Additionally, there is no delay for patients who want to resume sexual activity.

Are There Disadvantages or Risks Associated with ThermiVa?

Although ThermiVa is a revolutionary vaginal rejuvenation treatment, it does have some disadvantages. The results of ThermiVa are seen and felt gradually. They are not immediate! Most women notice a difference after one treatment session but require multiple sessions (up to 3) for optimal results. Additionally, the effects of the vaginal rejuvenation procedure are short-term, lasting only 9 to 12 months. Lastly, retreatment/maintenance of ThermiVa is required every 1 to 2 years. If any of these disadvantages is a deal breaker, you should give great consideration to surgical treatment options, such as labiaplasty, providing vaginal rejuvenation.

The risks associated with ThermiVa are minimal. Because the treatment is non-invasive and carefully controlled, patients do not have to worry about burns or blisters. In rare instances, the vaginal opening may become too tight following a ThermiVa treatment.

Comprehensive Urology’s team of ThermiVa experts is available to address patient concerns. We provide full details about ThermiVa prior to treatment to ensure patients understand exactly how the procedure is performed.

ThermiVA FAQs

How long do ThermiVa results last?

Oftentimes, women require at least one ThermiVa treatment per year for maintenance. However, it is important to note that ThermiVa results vary, and both genetic and environmental factors may impact the aging of the vaginal tissue.

Will ThermiVa help stop a leaky bladder?

Although ThermiVa is not designed for incontinence, patients who are dealing with mild stress incontinence sometimes report leaky bladder symptom improvements following treatment. Yet ThermiVa should not be viewed as a permanent incontinence treatment.

For those who are dealing with female incontinence, Comprehensive Urology can help. Our friendly, knowledgeable urologists can teach patients about various treatments to address stress, urge, functional, and overflow incontinence.

Can ThermiVa help address vaginal looseness and sagging?

If a woman is dealing with vaginal sagging or loss of support of the pelvic organs, ThermiVa may prove to be beneficial. ThermiVa treatments have been shown to provide vaginal tightening and improve support of the pelvic organs.

Is ThermiVa painful?

ThermiVa is an in-office procedure that requires no anesthesia. It is administered using radiofrequency heat energy delivered via a soft plastic S-shaped probe. During a ThermiVa procedure, the probe is carefully moved over the labia and inside the vagina and heats these areas in a controlled manner. By doing so, the probe delivers a gentle sensation similar to a warm massage.

Is ThermiVa a proven vaginal rejuvenation treatment option?

ThermiVa treatments provide safe, effective, and proven results. To date, more than 85,000 ThermiVa treatments have been performed worldwide. Women often choose ThermiVa to address excessive stretching of the vaginal muscles that occurs following vaginal birth or due to aging. ThermiVa helps women correct laxity of the vaginal skin – without downtime or discomfort.

What are the side effects of ThermiVa?

ThermiVa is one of the safest vaginal tightening procedures available today. Because the procedure does not require anesthesia (neither general nor local), surgical incisions, or stitches, there are virtually no side effects associated with ThermiVa. No unpredictable hormones via pills or injections. No pain and no chances of infection, bleeding, scarring, or nerve injury, which cannot be said for surgical rejuvenation techniques. Furthermore, no possibility of burns of blisters, which may be the case with other non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation techniques that use intense heat or laser technology. In extremely rare cases of treatment with ThermiVa, the result may exceed expectations, resulting in the vaginal opening becoming too tight.

How long does it take to recover from ThermiVa?

Because it is a non-invasive, non-surgical technique, ThermiVa has zero downtime or recovery. You can resume your normal everyday activities, even sexual intercourse or masturbation, immediately after treatment with ThermiVa. Because the procedure can be accomplished in 15 to 30 minutes, you may choose to undergo ThermiVa treatment during your lunch hour and immediately return to work. In contrast, surgical vaginal rejuvenation techniques require a recovery period (including a sexual abstinence period) of 6 weeks..

How much does ThermiVa Cost? Is ThermiVa covered by insurance?

Costs for ThermiVa vary, but usually include the physician’s fee, facility fee, and all pre-procedure and post-procedure appointments. Your physician will determine the best course of treatment. A personalized quote based on your specific medical history, physical examination and desired goals will be provided upon the conclusion of your initial consultation with your specialist at Comprehensive Urology.

Why Seek ThermiVa Treatments from a Board-Certified Urologist Instead of a Plastic Surgeon?

In order to obtain the full range of benefits of ThermiVa treatment, it is strongly advised that patients consult with a skilled urologist who not only understands patients’ cosmetic concerns but also their medical needs. When used to improve pelvic floor strength particularly in the event of vaginal prolapse or incontinence, a urologist has the extensive anatomic knowledge experience and insight necessary to treat the muscular structures of the pelvic area with ThermiVa treatment and achieve the best possible results.

In some cases, the skilled Los Angeles urology team at the Comprehensive Urology can provide the rejuvenating ThermiVa results a patient needs to avoid needing reconstruction surgery or bladder surgery.
