Negative effects of genetics, pregnancy, birth, menopause, and the normal aging process can lead to vaginal skin laxity, vaginal dryness, and decreased sexual pleasure among other complications. Dr. James Anthony in San Francisco, CA is excited to provide ThermiVa. As a nonsurgical procedure performed by Dr. Anthony, ThermiVa utilizes radiofrequency power to stimulate the production of collagen to help strengthen vaginal tissue and address operational difficulties. ThermiVa is safe and capable of enhancing the strength and elasticity of vaginal tissue without a need for surgery or extra downtime. It's an excellent option for women looking to revive the look and functionality of the vaginal region.
"Dr Anthony was recommended to me, and I've had more than one procedure at his clinic. At my initial consultation I felt at ease to ask a myriad of questions. He has a warm style, listens and works to understand each individual body and situation. His work is a skilled blend of art and science, and he recommends what is best for the patient, not what is trending. Each time I've been impressed with Dr Anthony's ability to minimize scars and hide them well. In preparation for surgery, what to expect on the day is explained in detail. I'm delighted with my results which look natural and have stood the test of time well. Dr Anthony's team is excellent - Ann, Jasmine and Megan are personal and caring."- M.B. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2019
"I would give 10 stars if I could. I have worked as a nurse in the aesthetics field for 15 years. I turned 60 in 2019 and decided to treat myself to a mini facelift and a minor nose tip revision. I was very, very lucky to be referred to Dr. James Anthony!! Although precise surgical expertise is important to me, Dr. Anthony had me at HELLO:) with his personality. He is kind, compassionate, excellent eye contact and listens to my concerns. My results are completely natural, even my friends, family, colleagues and even my own patients' say I look fresher but can't figure out what I have had done. Dr. Anthony suggested a couple of extra touches which made a huge difference to my neck bands. Thank you again for your highly experienced artistry! Yasmin at reception is always very pleasant and kind both in person and on the phone. Ann, Patient Coordinator, answers all my questions and listens to my needs. The OR staff is excellent! I had less than 1 week downtime over my Christmas holiday with minimal pain. Although, I now live in Los Angeles, I plan on returning to Dr. Anthony for an upper blepharoplasty procedure soon! Stay tuned for my before and after photos on Dr. James P. Anthony's Website."- C.C. / Yelp / Mar 03, 2020
"Dr. Anthony performed an upper and lower eyelid lift, nasolabial fold injections, neck thermage and abdominal liposuction for me (I figured as long as I was going to be under general anesthesia, I might as well get everything done at once). I am thrilled with the results. I was able to return to the office and start going out again within a week and a half of the surgery. Within two weeks, people started spontaneously telling me that I looked great -- so relaxed and well rested. It's been about five weeks since I had the procedures, and every day, I feel as if I look even better. Dr. Anthony strives to maintain a natural look -- no one would know I've had these procedures. In my initial consultation, he took his time explaining all of the options, potential risks, likely recovery time, and likely outcomes. After the consultation, he responded to my follow up questions by email, quickly and thoroughly. After the surgery, he checked in with me by phone and by email. His staff is excellent and also a great source of information about the procedures Dr. Anthony performs. I highly recommend him to anyone considering plastic surgery."- C.L. / Yelp / Feb 08, 2020
"Dr. Anthony is a highly skilled and very experienced surgeon. His work is impeccable and results exceed expectations. I have seen Dr. Anthony for a number of procedures including breast lift and augmentation, liposuction, upper eyelid lift and neck lift. I've always been thrilled with my results and surprised at how quickly I heal with minimal discomfort and zero complications. The results are completely natural. Even people who have known me for 20 years have not noticed that I had my eyes done and a neck lift! The only comments people make are "you look great" or ask if I lost weight. Dr. Anthony is kind, patient and answers all questions and his staff is great - very helpful and friendly. I have 100% confidence in him."- C.H. / Yelp / Feb 01, 2020
"I recently had eye lid surgery with Dr. Anthony who had been highly recommended by a friend. Dr. Anthony did not disappoint! I was concerned about looking fake or changing the shape of my eyes but Dr. Anthony listened to my concerns and my eyes turned out perfect. What I love about Dr. Anthony is that he made me look younger but natural, I have seen the same result with my friends who have had procedures with Dr. Anthony. My procedure was painless, short and easy. The staff was friendly and professional and addressed all of my concerns. Dr. Anthony has a great bedside manner, is an excellent surgeon and I will go back for more procedures as needed. A+"- E.M. / Yelp / Dec 03, 2019
An ideal candidate for ThermiVa is a woman with light to moderate vaginal laxity. It's also a perfect option for those unsure about having more kids and who wish to avoid the recovery that accompanies a surgery. As an ideal candidate for ThermiVa, you should probably be at least three months post-partum from your most recent childbirth, be finished having children, have a decrease in sexual pleasure, and also have loose outer or inner vaginal tissue.
Completed by Dr. Anthony as an outpatient procedure, ThermiVa can be finalized in three 15 – 30 minute sessions. The treatment sessions may also have to be spaced a minimum of one month apart. For the actual procedure, the ThermiVa wand is placed just above the outside region of the vagina and inserted into the inner vagina. The handpiece has an integrated thermometer to monitor the temperature to manage the safety of your vaginal tissue. After the session, patients need to avoid intercourse for no less than a day but otherwise may continue their regular activities.
What to Expect
Women that choose ThermiVa should expect to notice results about three weeks after their final session. Though follow-up sessions might be required, effects can last up to two years. The outcome will be altered if the patient gets pregnant or gives birth vaginally after the procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does ThermiVa cost?
The cost of ThermiVa may vary from patient to patient depending on how many treatment sessions are required to gain results. Once your customized treatment plan has been created, we will be able to discuss the specific price of your ThermiVa treatments. We will also be able to answer any questions you have about your out-of-pocket costs.
What is the difference between ThermiVa and a labiaplasty?
ThermiVa is more ideal for women who are unsure about having more children since it is less expensive, less time consuming, and requires no recovery period. While ThermiVa is a beneficial treatment option for women who have mild to moderate vaginal skin laxity, it may not be the best option for women with severe loose skin. A labiaplasty is a surgical removal of the excess skin in the vaginal area and may be better suited for women with significant vaginal skin laxity.
How many treatments will I need?
For optimal results, a series of three ThermiVa treatments spaced about a month apart is recommended. Following the three initial treatments, annual touch-up treatments may be necessary to help maintain results. Additionally, the natural aging process, significant weight changes, pregnancy, and childbirth can affect results.
What problems are treated with ThermiVa?
By creating a tighter vaginal area, ThermiVa can also treat several other problems that can occur through aging and other factors. ThermiVa is designed to reduce vaginal laxity as well as vulvar or labial laxity to tighten the labial tissues and minimize any sagging. It can also decrease vaginal dryness and stress incontinence to reduce any leakage, accidents, or urge symptoms. Additionally, ThermiVa can treat sexual or orgasmic dysfunction by helping to heighten sensitivity and increase the ability to achieve orgasms.
How does ThermiVa work?
ThermiVa uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat up the deep layers of the skin from inside the body. Using more controlled and carefully monitored delivery of energy right where it is needed most allows the tissues to be tightened underneath the skin. With radiofrequency energy, there is much less discomfort for the patient and superior results are achieved.
Restore and Revive
With the help of ThermiVa, you no longer need to suffer with loose vaginal tissues or operational problems. There's also no downtime required, unlike with surgical methods for vaginal tightening.
