The vagina is comprised of a series of muscles and tissues that usually form a tight tube when a woman is aroused and collapses flat when she is not. Childbirth, especially traumatic birth, can tear the tissues and leave scars. Multiple pregnancies, even if the births are not traumatic, can also stretch out these tissues. While Kegel exercises can tighten the muscles, the tissues can remain loose.
If you are dissatisfied with the tightness of your vaginal tissue, ThermiVa is a nonsurgical treatment designed to contract the tissues and restore tightness.
How Does It Work?
ThermiVa works by heating the vaginal tissues, which causes it to contract. This also stimulates the body’s collagen production, which makes skin more firm and supple. The treatment can also be used on labia tissue as well.
What Are Normal Results?
Some women notice results after just the first treatment. Patients have noted an increase in tightness and also in the production of lubrication. Women who experience vaginal orgasms may also note an increase in frequency or strength of their orgasms while others may note more pleasure from penetration overall.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
The usual course of treatment involves three monthly treatments with another treatment a year later as a ‘touch up,’ if needed. Of course, if you’re satisfied with the results after only one or two sessions, you can decide to cease receiving sessions at any time. Sessions may last under 30 minutes and you can resume your normal activities right away.
What Are the Risks?
If you are healthy, there is very little risk to receiving ThermiVa treatments. Some women note mild irritation that clears up within a few days while most notice no difference at all until they are sexually active.
Sexual issues can be embarrassing, but there’s no reason to be silent and dissatisfied. If you’re not happy with the tightness of your vagina, ThermiVa may be the right option for you.
