ThermiVa™ in Philadelphia, PA
Located in Bala Cynwyd and serving Philadelphia and South Jersey, Dr. Paul M. Glat, MD, FACS, and his highly-trained staff, is now offering ThermiVa™, which works to correct laxity of the labia through safe and controlled radiofrequency heating of the skin tissue.
What Are ThermiVa™ Treatments?
ThermiVa™ is a type of nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure performed with a temperature controlled radiofrequency device that tightens tissue with thermal heating. Preliminary medical studies reveal that women undergoing ThermiVa™ show improvement in:
- Sexual function
- Moisture in the vagina
A large number of women experience menopause symptoms as a result of the natural aging process, changes in hormone production and vaginal childbirth. ThermiVa™ is a non-invasive procedure available using controlled thermal energy to improve some of these uncomfortable medical issues. In addition, this non-invasive procedure is appropriate for making aesthtic improvements to a woman’s labia. ThermiVa™ is also painless and requires no downtime recovery.
The ThermiVa™ protocol requires three treatments that are performed approximately one month apart. Patients experience immediate improvements after each treatment. To maintain the best results, a patient may need maintenance treatments approximately nine months to one year after the primary procedure. In clinical trials, ThermiVa™ procedures have shown results in many of these areas:
One: Vaginal Laxity
The procedure tightens a woman’s vaginal opening or introitus and along the length of the vaginal canal.
Two: Labial and Vulvar Laxity
ThermiVa™ helps to tighten labial or vulvar tissues while reducing noticeable sagging.
Three: Atrophic Vaginitis or Vulvar Dryness
The procedure adds softer and thicker skin to add moisture without the use of hormones.
Four: Mild to Moderate Incontinence
In combination with Kegel exercises, ThermiVa™ can reduce urine leaks accidents, and urge symptoms while avoiding potentially dangerous mesh slings.
Five: Sexual Dysfunction
ThermiVa™ can strengthen muscular contractions and increase sensitivity, leading to greater sexual satisfaction for women and their partners.
How Does the Treatment Work?
ThermiVa™ technology uses temperature monitoring and regulation to ensure that the therapeutic temperature to the subcutaneous layer is reached and maintained.
The ThermiVa™ process contracts tissue into a tighter bundle while helping tissues and nerves to heal and collagen production to increase. The therapeutic effect of radio frequency treatment is well-known.
Who Typically Suffers from Vaginal Laxity?
Vaginal laxity is a common problem for women who have experienced vaginal delivery. The condition is also caused by:
- Straining or heavy lifting
- Any other activity that can stretches the vagina
How Safe is ThermiVa™?
The FDA's cleared institutional review board study conducted by ThermiVa™ physicians makes ThermiVa™ a safe and non-surgical alternative for vaginal skin laxity. In hundreds of procedures, there are no incidences of patients’ experiencing burns, blisters, or nerve damage, or infection.
Is Anesthesia Needed?
Because the radio frequency device used for ThermiVa™ creates a comfortable and warm temperature level, no local or general anesthesia is required.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
ThermiVa™ requires 10 minutes for reduction of the labia majora reduction, and 15 to 20 minutes for vaginal tightening. Three treatments scheduled a month apart are recommended.
What’s the Downtime?
There is no downtime required after ThermiVa™, and women may engage in sexual activity that day.
How Long Do Results Typically Last?
The results of a ThermiVa™ last an average time of between nine and 12 months.
