ThermiVa™ in New York and New Jersey
Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey offers ThermiVa™ treatments to the residents of New York and New Jersey at the Hackensack location.
What is ThermiVa™?
During menopause, many women can experience a wide range of symptoms, including vaginal dryness, incontinence, and vaginal laxity. While these symptoms are all a natural part of the aging process, they can be uncomfortable and inconvenient. And thanks to advances in medicine and science, they are unnecessary. There are several invasive procedures available to treat the symptoms of menopause, but most women shy away from surgical interventions. Today there is another option. ThermiVa is the first non-invasive, pain-free treatment for some menopausal symptoms. Through the use of controlled thermal energy, some of the side effects of aging can be minimized. This treatment may also be used to improve the cosmetic appearance of a patient’s labia.
How Does It Work?
ThermiVa™ is a quick and painless alternative to surgical vaginal rejuvenation that uses a special radiofrequency device to tighten loose vaginal tissue. ThermiVa™ works by carefully monitoring and regulating the temperature that is delivered to the deeper layer of tissue. This treatment method has many positive results, including the stimulation of tissue through contractions, increasing sensation,and the promotion of collagen production.
Typically, patients will require three separate ThermiVa™ treatments, carried out every three to four weeks. Many patients experience some improvement in symptoms after only one treatment. Once the initial course of treatments has ended, patients can have maintenance treatments every 6 to 12 months.
Is ThermiVa™ Safe?
In initial clinical studies, the FDA has classified ThermiVa™ as a safe non-surgical treatment for vaginal laxity. No infections, blisters, burns, or nerve damage have been reported.
