ThermiVa utilizes controlled radiofrequency, the same thermal energy that has been harnessed for over a decade for non-surgical face and body rejuvenation (Other radiofrequency treatments you may be familiar with are Thermage, eMatrix, Pelleve, and Intensif).
ThermiVa works by stimulating blood circulation and collagen production to increase tissue strength, elasticity, and thickness.
*Individuals Results May Vary.
Candidates for ThermiVa should have a record of:
- 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 are prone to herpes outbreaks, please inform Dr. Pilest, so he may prescribe antiviral medication prior to treatment)
***In preparation for your appointment, the area to be treated should be shaved or closely trimmed. Shaving should be done the day before your scheduled treatment; hair laser or waxing at least a week before.
***A pregnancy test will be administered in-office immediately before each ThermiVa treatment. If you are menstruating, treatment is not contraindicated, however, you may want to plan your treatments around your cycle for your own comfort.
Our ThermiVa-certified Registered Nurses will perform the treatment and take care of you all the way through.
Important ThermiVa Information
Thermi’s temperature controlled RF system is indicated in the US, Brazil, and China for use in dermatological and general surgical procedures for electrocoagulation and hemostatis. In Europe for electrocoagulation of soft tissues for vulvovaginal laxity.
As the options for cosmetic procedures expand like never before, the topic of rejuvenation has moved beyond just the patient’s face. Once a taboo topic, now the conversation of vaginal rejuvenation exists openly within doctor’s offices, girlfriends’ brunch hour, and even pop culture.
Although you will experience improvements from a single initial treatment, for best results – proven with thousands of patients – a series of three ThermiVa treatments are recommended, with treatments performed monthly. Once the series is complete, results can last up to a year. In order to maintain desired results, patients are encouraged to return for treatment at least once every 3-6 months.
