The Benefits of ThermiVA - Charleston, SC

ThermiVA is a revolutionary treatment that helps tighten and tone the most delicate tissues of a woman’s body. Many women suffer from stress incontinence and may wish to recover what childbirth or menopause has taken away. The ThermiVA treatment is ideal for tightening areas that may have been stretched by childbirth or simply the changes that come with aging.

  • Women seek the treatment for a number of reasons, including:
  • Stress incontinence
  • Improving the shape of the labia
  • Enhancing comfort and pleasure during intercourse
  • Improved comfort during exercise
  • To alleviate dryness problems

Why Choose ThermiVa?

The ThermiVa treatment is safe, painless, and effective. A narrow wand emits radiofrequency energy, gently warming the tissue. The waves increase circulation, create nerve tension, and increase collagen production in the area, leading to long-term improvement. Although there are surgical options available to address the problems women face after childbirth and menopause, they require extensive recovery time and may come with further complications. 

The FDA-approved ThermiVA treatment is non-invasive and has been proven effective in many cases. It’s important to talk to your doctor, to determine which course of treatment is most appropriate to your situation and goals. Many women find that the treatment is an effective, safe alternative to surgery. 

What to Expect

Prior to treatment, you will discuss your concerns and goals with your doctor. Tests will determine that you’re not currently pregnant and that there is no UTI or other vaginal infections present that may complicate the treatment process. 

The treatment is administered in up to three sessions, lasting about 45-60 minutes each. There is no need for numbing agents or anesthesia, because ThermiVa is a non-invasive, painless procedure. Patient report little to no discomfort.  Improvement occurs after each session, so you’ll enjoy the benefits after just one session.
