When we talk about aging, the topic is usually visible signs, such as facial wrinkles. However, time and life experiences can impact the entire body, including the vaginal area. Fortunately, there are solutions available, thanks to modern medical science. Women in Brooklyn, NY who are seeking vaginal rejuvenation often come to Khrom Dermatology asking about the Thermiva procedure. Here are answers to some of the most common questions.
Q: Is Thermiva a surgery?
A: No. It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses the power of RF (radiofrequency) energy to stimulate collagen production, tighten and rejuvenate vaginal and labial tissue.
Q: Can Thermiva help me get back my pre-baby body?
A: It can help restore tissue elasticity, tighten loose muscles, improve incontinence, and similar concerns. However, Thermiva is a targeted treatment, which focuses on vaginal rejuvenation. It will not restore the abdominal area, but it can be combined with lasers for stretch marks, body contouring, skin tightening, and other procedures for a nonsurgical “mommy makeover.”
Q: Is the procedure painful?
You will feel a gentle warming sensation as tissue is infused with RF energy, but it should not hurt. In fact, most patients do not even describe it as uncomfortable.
Q: How much downtime can I expect?
A: None! There is no downtime or uncomfortable recovery associated with this procedure.
Q: How many treatment sessions will I need?
A: We generally recommend a series of three treatments, about one month apart. However, the exact treatment plan may vary depending on your needs. Due to the gentle nature of this procedure, there is no limit to the number of times it can be performed.
Q: How long does it take for Thermiva to work?
A: You may notice some difference immediately after the procedure, though it takes a couple of weeks for results to develop. There should be additional improvement after each treatment.

Q: How long will the results last?
A: Thermiva is long-lasting, but not permanent. Most patients choose to schedule maintenance treatments every twelve to eighteen months.
