ThermiVa® is a non-surgical treatment used to help treat stress and urinary incontinence to improve bladder control. ThermiVa offers a solution to many of the gynaecology problems associated with childbirth or ageing.
Treatment is fast, painless and involves minimal downtime – all of which means you can expect great results without having to resort to more invasive measures, like surgery. No anaesthesia is required and the procedure simply involves the use of a small heated wand which is inserted and moved gradually over the specific tissues.
“The most obvious improvement after my first treatment was that for the first time in decades I have been able to sleep through the night without getting up to use the bathroom at 3am or 4am.”
“After having my second baby last year, my pelvic floor muscles were just not the same as they were. I was nervous about going to the gym. Even a short run was something I had to ‘come prepared for’. But since I’ve had my ThermiVa® treatments I can do my circuit training and squats again, without any worries, or surgery.”
1.How does ThermiVa work?
ThermiVa works by delivering radio frequency to both the internal and the external tissues. The tissue is heated to specific temperatures, encouraging the growth of new collagen, increased blood flow and improved nerve supply. Patients report improvement in symptoms of stress and urinary incontinence.
2.How long is the treatment?
The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes and requires no downtime. The typical protocol for ThermiVa treatments is three treatments, spaced four weeks apart. Many women see improvement after the first treatment, but optimal results will be observed three months after the third treatment.
3.How long do ThermiVa results last?
The need to re-treat will be based on individual needs and expectations. In addition, both genetic and environmental factors such as smoking, weight gain/obesity and hormones will affect ageing of the tissue. The majority of women will need one treatment per year as maintenance.
4.What’s the difference between ThermiVa and lasers?
ThermiVa uses RF, or radio-frequency and is not painful, whereas other machines use a CO2 laser.
