Certified vConfidence doctors in Raleigh, North Carolina, now offer non-surgical ThermiVA™ treatments to tighten and improve the sensitivity of vaginal tissue.
What is ThermiVA™?
ThermiVA™ uses radiofrequency energy delivered internally or externally to stimulate collagen production within vaginal tissue and increase vaginal sensitivity. The procedure takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes during which the vaginal tissue is gently heated to a therapeutic temperature. It is important to note that radiofrequency lasers operate at lower temperatures than fractional CO2 lasers, which means that they may not be as effective at stimulating the fibroblasts that are essential for the development of new collagen. While ThermiVA™ may provide symptom relief for some patients, other treatments such as Femilift™, FemTouch™, or Geneveve™ by Viveve, may provide longer-lasting and more complete symptom relief.
How Does vConfidence Use ThermiVA™ for Treatment?
Radio frequency treatments, such as ThermiVA™, represent a significant advancement over previous generation treatments and are still preferred by some patients today. The lower temperatures achieved by the radio frequency energy may be sufficient to achieve a patient’s treatment goals. Depending on the patient’s specific needs and goals, new vConfidence technologies, such as Intima, Geneveve™ by Viveve, FemTouch™, and Femilift™, may provide more long-term solutions to vaginal health issues, including laxity, dryness, painful intercourse, incontinence, and recurrent urinary tract infections.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
Most patients achieve maximum results after three sessions lasting 30 to 60 minutes each. ThermiVA™ treatments are spaced over a period of three months. In contrast, the Geneveve™ procedure can be completed in as little as five minutes.
Will There Be Any Downtime?
Since ThermiVA™ treatments are non-invasive, there is minimal downtime. Our certified vConfidence physicians in Raleigh can help you find the right vaginal rejuvenation treatment for your needs. Contact us today to schedule a complimentary consultation.
What Are the Results?
During your initial consultation, the doctor will listen to your concerns and discuss your treatment goals. The doctor will then discuss how both ThermiVA™ and fractional CO2 laser treatments can help you meet those goals and the type of results that you can expect from each treatment.
How Does vConfidence ThermiVA™ Treatment Feel?
ThermiVA™ vConfidence treatments are pain-free. During the treatment, you may notice a warm sensation within the vaginal canal. Unlike the Femilift™ and FemTouch™ procedures, the probe must frequently be moved to prevent tissues in a specific area from becoming overheated.
