- A persistent discomfort when wearing tight-fitting clothes
- Stress incontinence or leakage when laughing, sneezing, jogging, playing tennis or jumping on a trampoline
Because ThermiVa treatments are non-invasive, comfortable, and convenient, many women have benefited from this life-changing treatment. Dr. Petropoulos talks with you about each of these issues to ensure your safety before recommending any treatments.
How ThermiVa® Works
ThermiVa is a specialized adaptation of: ThermiRF® radiofrequency skin tightening and contouring system. A similar version of the technology has been popular for years for anti-aging purposes, tightening facial skin and smoothing away wrinkles.
During a ThermiVa treatment, a specialized wand for comfort and simplicity enables our female clinician to directly apply heat to the inner and outer tissues of the female parts. By gently heating the tissue, ThermiVa encourages the building of collagen which results in increased vaginal tightness and sensation.
What to Expect after Vaginal Rejuvenation
From start to finish, a ThermiVa procedure lasts about 30 minutes, during which patients just feel a gentle warmth. There is no downtime and patients can go about their day as usual after a treatment session. All normal activity may be resumed, including sexual intercourse.
During treatment, you will feel the sensation of warmth, but at a comfortable level. The ThermiVa wand simultaneously applies heat and monitors the affected tissue to make sure it gradually reaches a therapeutic temperature that promotes collagen production. This process takes several minutes, and the wand will pass back and forth over the treatment area.
Immediately following treatment, you may experience mild swelling, and some pinkness may be visible. Occasionally, on rare occasions, there might be some slight cramping. This all abate within a day.
Many of our patients are amazed to learn just how simple and comfortable the process is – and how much of a positive effect the results have on their lives.
The increased tightness of external tissues is visible immediately after treatment, and your results continue to develop over time. In addition, ThermiVa helps patients regain feminine wellness such as clitoral sensitivity and restoration of feminine moisture. Patients with mild incontinence have fewer episodes, and some are able to stop using pads altogether after treatment.
Many patients are pleased with their results after only a single treatment. Those with mild leakage or other issues may choose a series of 3 treatments, each a month apart. The number of sessions you undergo is a decision between you and Dr. Petropoulos, who advises you based on your overall feminine health.
The full effect of a ThermiVa treatment takes a few months to develop, but most improvements are noticeable after about 10 days. To learn more about how ThermiVa can help you feel more confident about your femininity, request a consultation or call us at 978-739-9500.
