Urinary incontinence is frequently something women endure in silence. It’s uncomfortable, embarrassing, and seen as a sign of lost youth and vitality, but it doesn’t have to be. Vaginal wellness is a key part of a woman’s overall health. Dr. Kimberly Finder at The Face & Body Place makes women’s health a priority, and can help you leave behind the secrecy and silent suffering of incontinence.
How ThermiVA® Works to Improve Urinary Function
ThermiVA® is one of the most advanced vaginal rejuvenation and incontinence treatments available, particularly because it’s non-surgical with zero downtime. It works by delivering controlled thermal radiofrequency energy to contract the pubocervical tissue that supports the urethra. A laugh, cough, or sneeze exerts downward pressure on the urethra, and without proper support, it can’t compress as it does in pre-menopause, pre-childbirth years to prevent uncomfortable and embarrassing leakage. The healing effect from the RF energy tightens muscles and tissues to improve urethral support. ThermiVA® also helps overactive bladders or patients with urgency and frequency issues by healing nerves damaged by childbirth or menopausal changes.
ThermiVA® has benefits beyond incontinence, treating vaginal dryness and/or laxity common after childbirth and menopause. RF energy promotes the release of vasoactive peptides to improve dilation of arteries in the vaginal region. The increased blood flow enhances vaginal lubrication and sensitivity to combat sexual dysfunction and improve orgasm. Vaginal laxity is addressed as the RF energy builds new collagen for greater support of muscles.

What to Expect During ThermiVA® Treatments
Until now, only surgical treatments, such as a vaginoplasty, were available, resulting in a painful, months-long recovery processes, and the improvements weren’t that comprehensive. Now, with ThermiVA®, there is no downtime, and no anesthesia required during the 30 minute procedure. Many patients report the heat of the treatment is quite pleasant. The thermal device gradually heats as it treats, so the beginning of the treatment is not startling or difficult to acclimate to. Because the purpose is to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen fibers to increase muscular support around the urethra, the results may take time to become noticeable in regards to incontinence. Unlike surgery, though, ThermiVA® improves orgasmic sensitivity and vaginal dryness as well, which patients often report improvement with right away. Most patients require up to 3 sessions scheduled 4 weeks apart, with noticeable results after the 1st or 2nd session.
Why have ThermiVA® treatments at The Face & Body Place? Because your vaginal health matters, and the quality of your post-childbirth and pre-menopausal years doesn’t have to be subject to compromise. There’s a lot of confusion and stigma associated with the effects of age on women’s bodies, and at The Face & Body Place, our staff is here to help you separate the safe and effective treatment options from the hype and hyperbole of cultural and societal pressure. ThermiVA® is a great way to reclaim younger, pre-motherhood bodies, combat the effects of menopause, and restore muscle tone and vitality for improved bladder function.
