What is ThermiVa?
ThermiVa is a RadioFrequency machine that uses advanced technology to treat women’s vaginal concerns.
How does ThermiVa work?
Controlled radiofrequency is emitted through the tip of a handpiece that is only about 1.5 centimetres wide. The handpiece tip requires direct contact with vaginal tissue, and it is passed up and down the vaginal canal to safely induce heat in the deeper layers. This controlled heating causes the collagen to contract and tighten. It also stimulates new collagen production, which strengthens the tissues inside the vaginal walls.
What can I expect from the treatment?
Patients have reported a warming sensation during treatment, with very little discomfort. Your doctor will likely recommend that you abstain from having intercourse or using tampons for 3 days to 1 fortnight after treatment, depending on your specific condition.
There may be some initial tightening of the vaginal tissues, but because collagen takes time to regenerate itself, you may need more than one treatment and results may take some time to become apparent.
