Women are treated with ThermiVa for a number of different reasons, but these are often the most important:
“Loose” vaginal feel since childbirth and/or menopause
Vaginal dryness during intercourse
Trouble reaching orgasm
Occasional urinary dribble or leakage with sneezing, coughing or exercise
Intimate relationships suffering due to changes
Have experienced a loss of self-confidence, loss of interest in sex or loss of desire
What makes ThermiVa
ThermiVa uses RF energy that gently heats tissue to restore normal tissue tone and function. (This is the same safe technology that has been used for many years in other medical applications.)
ThermiVa can be used both externally and internally. When used inside the vagina, it has proven to effectively revive atrophic tissue and other structures.
ThermiVa is non-surgical ... so there's no downtime, no anesthesia, and sexual relations may resume the same day. Patients see a noticeable improvement after 1 or 2 sessions and the results last a long time.
One of the most common complaints from women involves dry and painful intercourse. It is a common problem in postmenopausal women but can also impact women in other times of their life and for many different reasons. This condition is called "Atrophic Vaginitis" or dry and painful intercourse.
ThermiVa is one of the solutions we can offer to women who suffer from dry and painful intercourse.
