Certain events, like menopause and childbirth, can dramatically change our bodies in more ways than one. Once these events occur, we can notice a decline in our sexual health. Vaginal atrophy, dryness, and a dip in sexual satisfaction are all common after these changes. With ThermiVa®, these and other intimate issues can be resolved without the need for surgery. This non-invasive treatment uses radiofrequency heat to improve your vaginal health quickly and easily. Get in touch with our team at McLean Dermatology to learn more today.
How Does ThermiVa® Work?
ThermiVa® is a non-invasive, non-hormonal device that uses controlled radiofrequency energy to heat tissue and rejuvenate collagen without discomfort or downtime. Studies have shown improvement in vaginal rejuvenation, lubrication, sexual satisfaction, and improvement in urinary urge incontinence.
What to Expect
ThermiVa® is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that does not require anesthesia. It treats both internal and external vaginal tissue and requires no downtime. Prior to treatment, the area(s) will be cleansed and prepped with a lubricating gel. The procedure feels like a vaginal ultrasound.
A small probe will be used to gently heat the area. Slight discomfort may be experienced while undergoing treatment. Typically the discomfort is mild and temporary during the procedure and localized within the treatment area. During the treatment, you should feel warmth and pressure and provide ongoing feedback to the healthcare provider performing the treatment. Treatment time is approximately 30-40 minutes. There is no anesthesia necessary.
Some post-treatment side effects can be expected after your procedure. Redness will dissipate after about 30 minutes. We will discuss all potential side effects during your initial consultation. An average of three treatments is needed to get the best results. Follow-up sessions should be spaced three weeks apart.
