As women age, they not only suffer from changes to their appearance via wrinkles and other signs of aging but also when it comes to their sexual health and body functions.

Over the years, events like pregnancy and childbirth along with hormonal changes and age-related tissue decline can impact vaginal wellness.

Fortunately, science is finally catching up on delivering relief for women everywhere.

History of ThermiVa Treatments

History of ThermiVa

It’s true that the ThermiVa procedure is a relatively new treatment. However, that doesn’t take away from the fact that it boasts some of the most positive results experienced by women so far. ThermiVa is considered a medical spa procedure due to being non-invasive, non-surgical, and non-hormonal.

The ThermiVa procedure was invented by Dr. Red Alinsod, who is a Urogynecologist. He has been a pioneer in the exploration of vaginal rejuvenation along with noninvasive management of female stress urinary incontinence.

ThermiVa has by necessity gone through a long process in becoming FDA approved. The concept of vaginal rejuvenation is still fairly new and even the slightest misstep can cause irreversible problems within the vagina leading to additional health issues. Fortunately, the treatment has been FDA approved for use in dermatological and general surgical procedures.

To ensure that your treatment is in compliance, make sure your chosen practitioner utilizes all ThermiVa products in accordance with FDA regulations and that they have learned from a qualified professional training program. Your safety and wellbeing are at risk with improper performance of this procedure.

Potential Side Effects of ThermiVa

The ThermiVa treatment is almost unique in the sense that it’s so effective while being so non-invasive. In fact, the treatment is so safe that there have been no reported side effects. However, as with any treatment, there is the risk of you not responding to the treatment at all. Some patients may not see the same level of results as another patient.

Also, there is a very small risk of suffering from blisters or burns. This is avoidable by making sure the ThermiVa is moved continuously during the treatment.

While there are virtually no side effects, there are circumstances that can prevent you from being a good candidate for the procedure.

To be a candidate you need to satisfy the following conditions:

  • Clear pap smears within the past two years
  • No history of frequent urinary tract infections
  • No vaginal or pelvic floor prolapse
  • No active sexually transmitted disease

If you have these conditions you are unable to use this procedure.

  • Currently wearing a device affected by radiofrequency like a pacemaker
  • Currently pregnant
    • Note: wait 6 weeks before treatment if you just recently gave birth

Only a certified medical practitioner can legally perform ThermiVa. The real danger with ThermiVa lies in being administered improperly. A skilled, licensed, and certified medical practitioner that specializes in ThermiVa is your best option for success.

How much does ThermiVa cost?

The cost of ThermiVa can vary significantly from clinic to clinic. The average cost ranges from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. Your geographic location, package purchased, and the number of treatments needed will also impact your total cost.

Consult with your practitioner about financing or payment plans as needed to lessen the financial impact as this procedure is not covered by insurance.

How many ThermiVa treatments will I need?

When you first start treatment you will need to do three treatments in the first year. This is usually spread out over three months. After the initial treatment phase, it is recommended to keep an annual treatment regimen to maintain your results.

Some women may need additional treatment depending on their response to treatment and degree of correction needed. Consult with your practitioner if you think you need more than the standard treatment.

How long is the recovery time with ThermiVa?

There is virtually no recovery time. You can resume normal activities as soon as you leave your appointment. This includes having sex. Keep in mind that results may not be noticed until after two weeks has passed since treatment.

The only things to note with your recovery is that your need to urinate may increase for a few days and if the procedure was done improperly you may have burns, but that is not considered a part of normal recovery.

How quickly will I see results from ThermiVa?

Describe average time; expectations, and any variations/dependencies

Some women will notice results quickly after the first treatment. However, full results cannot be experienced till after all three treatments are completed. The treatment induces collagen production which is a gradual process.

If you have not responded to ThermiVa by the end of the treatment phase, you should consider pursuing other treatments with your practitioner.

Are there other similar options to ThermiVa?

Perhaps the most similar treatment option is the Mona Lisa Touch or other vaginal rejuvenation treatments. Every option has their pros and cons and one may be right for you while another isn’t. When it comes to your vaginal health, working with your practitioner is key.

There are a number of issues and concerns women face, and each treatment addresses those concerns to differing degrees and effectiveness. Your practitioner can help you determine if ThermiVa is right for you.
