Is ThermiVa Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment Painful?Posted on May 7, 2016
ThermiVa RF system is a unique procedure based on radio frequency energy to tighten loose vaginal muscles and labial tissue. For women who want to improve their sexual aesthetics without involving cosmetic surgery may consider ThermiVa as a safe, comfortable and effective treatment option.
Some women will naturally be concerned about whether ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation procedure is painful. The treatment provider will discuss this aspect in detail during the initial consultation. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala provides ThermiVa treatment to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding locations.
Safe and Painless RF System
Traditional RF systems were known to cause considerable amount of discomfort during the procedure. These systems were designed to blast RF heat and then use cooling techniques to reduce the pain. These ‘blast and cool’ devices were unable to deliver sustained, controlled, gentle heat to the targeted tissue. ThermiVa vaginal aesthetics procedure has changed all that.
ThermiVa applies heat a consistent temperature ranging between 40 and 45 degrees Celsius. The delivery is comfortable and sustainable because of the “Temperature Controlled” system. Advanced software and technology used in ThermiVa enables slow heating of the tissue to the desired temperatures, and then maintain the temperatures to achieve tissue contraction in a gentle, painless manner.
Detailed clinical studies to determine the safety and comfort levels of ThermiVa procedure have been completed with clearly established results. No burns or blisters or other adverse events have occurred since 2009 with ThermiVa. Burns and blisters typically occur above 55 degrees Celsius temperatures, a limit which is never reached by ThermiVa.
ThermiVa system is not only more comfortable than a plastic surgery procedure, but it also scores over advanced laser systems that may be used to shrink the labia majora. Ablative lasers will require local anesthesia and involve significant downtime, while ThermiVa does not require any specific recovery time. Dr. Fiala receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas for ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation.
Anesthesia and Downtime
While laser and other systems will usually require local anesthetic for treatment of the labia major and the vaginal opening, ThermiVa RF system does not require any type of anesthesia. ThermiVa treatment may feel similar to a warm stone massage, and give any stinging or prickly sensations during the procedure.
Another good thing is that ThermiVa entails zero downtime. The patient can immediately resume her normal activities. She will have no restrictions on sexual activity, going to the gym or performing any physical exercises. No abnormal discharge will occur after the treatment.
No Risk of Complications
ThermiVa does not have any risk of side effects or complications that are normally associated with a surgical procedure. Therefore, it has emerged as a treatment of choice for many women. Busy mothers and working women, in particular, prefer ThermiVa because they do not want to go through a procedure that would involve a prolonged downtime and discomfort.
A lot will also depend on the skill and experience of the treatment provider how they perform the procedure and whether they follow all the safety protocols that are related to any RF based aesthetic treatment.
