ThermiVA for Vaginal Tightening and More
Dr. Hailparn has introduced ThermiVA™, the newest technology, into her San Antonio office to expand the options women have for vulvar and vaginal rejuvenation. The ThermiVa RadioFrequency machine is the most innovative technology that tightens the vagina and vulvar skin without cutting or anesthesia. It uses proven technology* which has been around for years in medical and aesthetic procedures.
ThermiVa can also treat:
- mild pelvic relaxation
- mild incontinence
- vaginal atrophy (dryness)
- painful intercourse due to menopause
Physicians report that their patients are comfortable, relaxed and very pleased with the noticeable results.
This is an in-office procedure that can be done in approximately 30 minutes with no down time, and results become apparent after the first treatment. For vaginal tightening, there are three treatment sessions, 4-6 weeks apart. At $1,500 per treatment, it costs significantly less than vaginal rejuvenation surgery. A once-a-year maintenance treatment may be required at an additional cost.
Am I A Candidate For ThermiVA™?
ThermiVA™ presents a treatment option for women who want results without surgery. If you have the following symptoms, treatment with ThermiVA™ may be right for you.
- Symptoms of Mild Vaginal/Pelvic Relaxation
Reduction in sensation for one or both partners during intercourse, pressure in vagina with exercise or bearing down, or the occasional pushing down of a tampon or Nuvaring, mild constipation, SUI, hemorroids.
- Symptoms of Vulvar Laxity
Chafing, pulling or feelings of discomfort with clothing, activities, and/or intercourse due to saggy skin of the labia majora. A sign of this is wrinkling and/or sagginess of the vulvar skin, an uneven or flat appearance.
- Symptoms of Mild Incontinence (or Stress Urinary Incontinence, SUI)
Leakage of a few drops of urine on occasion (a few times a month or less) with coughing, sneezing, laughing, bending, lifting, jumping on a trampoline, dancing, running, etc.
