Learn More About ThermiVA at SpaMedica

If you are considering ThermiVA, it is important for patients to be well-informed about the procedure beforehand. You can find more about SpaMedica’s ThermiVA procedure below.

What is the ThermiVA?

ThermiVA is a non-ablative radiofrequency vaginal heating device.  It is specially constructed to treat the tissues and structures of the lax vaginal canal; the vaginal side walls, ceiling and floor of the vagina and the entire vaginal canal to rejuvenate the vaginal lining, increase vaginal tightening, improve the symptoms of vaginal relaxation syndrome and the genitourinary signs of menopause and vulvovaginal atrophy.  Similar to the FORMA V, the ThermiVA is temperature controlled and non-ablative.  The FORMA V uses multiple electrodes, where as the ThermiVA is a monopolar RF (radiofrequency) system that requires a ground pad to connect the patient.  The treatment takes 30 to 45 minutes and is performed once a month for three months.

How does the ThermiVA and FORMA V work?

Both non-ablative devices with the FORMA V and the ThermiVA are temperature-controlled non-ablative radiofrequency heating devices that heat the vaginal mucosa and sub-mucosal tissue. This leads to a more youthful vaginal epithelium, enhanced mucinous secretion to combat dryness and irritation of postmenopausal or post Tamoxifen symptomatology, and to decrease the symptoms of stress incontinence, dysuria and of painful intercourse.  Of course, the atrophic signs of postmenopausal vaginal environment will return if maintenance treatments are not undertaken.

The vaginal lining is heated to comfortable levels that produce new collagen and ground substances leading to a firmer tighter vaginal canal with reduced symptoms of vaginal atrophy.

How frequent are maintenance treatments required following the ThermiVA?

To protect the investment and improvements, a single maintenance treatment is recommended every three to four months.  Each treatment is completed in  30 to 40 minutes and there is no downtime or pain.

Is there any pain following the treatment with the ThermiVA?

Because the ThermiVA, like the FORMA V and other non-ablative radiofrequency devices, is a gentle-heating, temperature-controlled technology, there is no pain associated with it.  Patients can return to normal activities immediately.

When can I return to normal activities and sexual intimacy?

Patients can return to normal activities immediately following the procedure.  Sexual intimacy, vaginal stimulation and coitus can resume immediately following treatment.

How much is the ThermiVA treatment?

Individual treatments of ThermiVA are $1,000, and a series of three treatments are required month-to-month for three months.  A three-treatment package can be purchased with additional customer-value pricing.

Who will see me during my initial ThermiVA consultation and then Treatment?

Dr. Sasha Syvstonyuk, a certified Gynecologic surgeon, is a well known Canadian Gynaecologic surgeon specializing in minimally invasive gynaecologic procedures. Dr. “Sasha” (as he is affectionately called by his SpaMedica patients) performs a comprehensive vaginal, cervical and pelvic exam on all patients. The best options for “best in class” vaginal tightening and rejuvenation will be discussed and your individual and customized vaginal rejuvenation plan determined. There are several SpaMedica Vaginal tightening devices that are only operated by Dr Sasha, such as the Mona Lisa Touch fractional CO2 laser vaginal procedure, the Syneron CORE Intima, the V-Tite and the Fractora V are all the vaginal tightening procedures performed by Dr. Sasha himself.  For the non ablative, more gentle vaginal rejuvenation and tightening procedures, such as the Forma V, the ThermiVA and low energy Fractora V, a highly trained and female Vaginal Rejuvenation technician is deployed and directly over seen by Dr Sysvtonyuk or Dr Mulholland.
