What Is ThermiVa?

The vagina is made up of three layers soft tissue, smooth muscle and bundles of fiber, all of which work to contract and relax the vagina as required. During childbirth the vaginal canal stretches and after delivery it will not regain its original tone and muscle control. This condition worsens with each subsequent birth and age. These result in reduced sexual pleasure, changes in appearance of the labia and often incontinence. Older women notice a lack of lubrication which causes pain and discomfort during intercourse.

Currently exercises, gels and surgery are used to address this condition. However the new and innovative procedure, ThermiVa, regenerates and rejuvenates the vaginal tissue to reduce laxity, increase lubrication and improve stress urinary incontinence. And all in ONE quick procedure with no down time!

How does ThermiVa work?

ThermiVa uses radio frequency to deliver accurate and controlled heat to targeted areas. The heat releases neuropeptides which increase blood vessels and also cause the collagen to shrink, tightening the vagina. This thermal energy stimulates the production of new collagen and blood vessels which augments the tightening process and produces lubrication.

The Benefits

The Risks

The risks are minimal. Patients may feel slight vaginal irritation for 24 hours after the procedure.

While ThermiVa is a safe and effective procedure, only a specialist will be able to decide if it is the right option for you. Talk to Dr Thanapathy about the problems you face and learn if ThermiVa is right for you.
