Food and Drug Administration approved, Thermiva uses temperature-controlled radio frequency to build collagen. A wand, specifically designed for comfort, heats the targeted area with radio frequency energy, so the patient feels a warm, painless sensation. The procedure is performed in about an hour and there is no downtime. “Patients have reported improvement right away after the first treatment,” says Dr. Kristine Blanche, of Integrative Healing Center at Aristocrat Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics, with offices in NYC and Long Island. Two additional treatments are recommended to give lasting results. “Patients find that they are able to engage in activities and feel more comfortable with their partners and while exercising.”
“Thermiva answers more than one problem,” says Blanche. “It offers a one-of-a-kind nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation that is evident by all the pictures on ThermiVa.com; but what is truly exciting is that with the tightening of vaginal tissues, you can target the tightening effects to the area of the urethra called pubocervical fascia, and this results in the amazing reduction in leaky bladder. Both stress incontinence (leaking from increased pressure, such as a cough, sneeze and jump) and overactive bladder are relieved consistently. Our patients have reported improved urinary control, greater enjoyment of intercourse, alleviation of vaginal dryness and painful intercourse, aesthetic improvement, comfort exercising and wearing tight-fitting clothes, and a renewed confidence.”
