Treatment is performed by one of our fully-trained Registered Nurses, Liz or Aileen. Rest assured your entire treatment experience is done with the utmost of privacy and sensitivity in the singular attendance of our female nurses assisted by female staff.
During treatment, the wand is gently moved along the external and internal area of the vagina to heat up the tissue. The sterile, disposable ThermiVa wand is no larger than the size of an index finger and is equipped with a small panel on the tip that emits the radiofrequency energy. Treatment is quick and comfortable, with the procedure itself taking no longer than 30 minutes. Patients compare the sensation during treatment to that of a warm massage.
After treatment, you will likely experience minor swelling and/or redness of the treated area, as well as possible cramping and/or spotting. These side effects are generally mild in nature and typically last anywhere from a few hours to a few days. There is no downtime involved; no restrictions on exercise and other regular activities, including sexual intercourse.
