“Goodbye to Fear of the Sneeze”
What is ThermiVA?
Everyone has heard of Mommy Makeovers. It is combining a tummy tuck and a breast augmentation and or lift to restore our bodies after pregnancy. Children are wonderful blessings, but they take their toll on our bodies! And even if you haven’t had children, age takes a toll as well. Another area that suffers is the vagina and external genital area. Until recently, the procedures to restore the vulvovaginal area required anesthesia and significant pain and downtime. ThermiVA has changed all of that. ThermiVA uses radio frequency to gently heat the tissues to a therapeutic temperature. That leads to several improvements with no pain and no downtime.
ThermiVA is a 30-40 minute, non invasive procedure that is done with a wand about the diameter of a finger. The internal and external tissues are treated. It feels similar to a hot stone massage. It is painless and there is no downtime. We schedule 3 treatments one month apart. After that we recommend 1 treatment every 9-12 months to maintain your results.
The tissues become tighter so that the external structures look better and the internal vagina is tighter. I have had patients say that they did not tell their husbands what they were doing, but that their husbands definitely noticed a difference even after first treatment.
ThermiVA Increases Lubrication and Sensitivity
The therapeutic temperatures caused an increased blood flow and that leads to increased lubrication. Peri menopausal and Post menopausal women often have decreased levels of moisture that can make intercourse uncomfortable. Women who have had breast cancer and have been on anti estrogen medications and chemotherapy can have severe dryness that makes intercourse impossible. ThermiVA does a great job restoring moisture. ThermiVA increases sensitivity and can increase orgasmic potential by waking up the nerves in the area. The combination of increased moisture and increases sensitivity can make sex more enjoyable.
ThermiVA Improves Urinary Incontinence
Do you dread sneezing and coughing because you are afraid you will leak urine? As our tissues age, we lose support around the urinary opening. ThermiVA tightens this tissue and can reduce or eliminate urinary incontinence. You won’t be afraid to sneeze, cough or jump. You can travel more than an hour in the car before you have to find a bathroom.
