• Ultra Femme 360 vs. ThermiVa - Which Treatment Option is Better?

Both these treatments - Ultra Femme 360 and ThermiVa - address vaginal dryness, mild stress urinary incontinence, vaginal laxity and vulva irregularities. I have had the opportunity to use both these modalities and eventually decided to down size to 1 machine. My choice was the Ultra Femme 360. Below are a few reasons why. 

Ultra Femme Combines RF and Ultrasound
The Ultra uses both RF and Ultrasound while the ThermiVa uses RF only. This combination allows higher heat tolerance, which results in more stimulation of the nerve endings to release the neuro peptides. This translates to increased lubrication, collagen formation and shrinkage of tissue resulting in the ability to exercise without leakage and improved intimacy.

Ultra Femme Uses Two Probes
The wand for the Ultra Femme comes in 2 sizes and is made such that you can treat the full circumference and is customized to the size of the cavity.This reduces the treatment time by half. Since you are treating the full circumference you avoid missing areas. The use of 2 probes, one for internal and the other for external rejuvenation, gives you the option of limiting your treatment to those areas only and so cutting the cost of the procedure. Not everyone needs both areas treated. The treatment intervals are also shorter: 7 days vs 28 days. In my experience, this increases compliance and results.
