ThermiVa FAQ

Are panty liners and incontinence underwear a new staple in your closet?thermiva vaginal procedure-faq

If you find that you no longer feel like yourself due to changes in your vaginal appearance, feel, or physicality, ThermiVa may be the answer you’ve been looking for. This non-invasive procedure can improve orgasms, relieve incontinence struggles, and fight vaginal dryness, transforming your lifestyle.

Our local clinic treats women from Johnson City, Kingsport, and the surrounding areas who struggle with vaginal changes due to aging or childbirth, and has been helping women reclaim their youthful “pre-baby” bodies while boosting satisfaction, eliminating pain and discomfort and reviving their relationships.

Here are a few of the questions our tri-cities clients often ask about ThermiVa treatments:

About ThermiVa

What is ThermiVa? How does it work?

ThermiVa uses controlled-temperature radio frequency waves to promote new cell production, tighten the vagina and labia, and coordinate muscles. It uses a small, simple wand, passed gently across and inside the vagina, and can help restore your body after menopause, childbirth, or hormonal changes.

Is the ThermiVa procedure painful?

No, not at all. In fact, ThermiVa has been compared to “warm stones” or “a massage.”

How long before patients see results?

Many women report changes after a single appointment! We always schedule multiple sessions at our tri-cities clinic for best results; on average, Johnson City and Kingsport women can expect to see results about two weeks after the first procedure.

How many treatments do you need?

With ThermiVa, you will receive three 30-minute treatments within a three-month timespan – that’s it. If you start your treatments before Thanksgiving, you’ll be done by Valentine’s Day.

How long do results last?

Twelve months is the maximum lifespan of a ThermiVa treatment.

ThermiVa and You

Does ThermiVa help with sexual function?

Yes! Because ThermiVa tightens your vaginal canal and labia, it can increase your sensation of pressure and therefore your pleasure. In addition, ThermiVa can decrease vaginal dryness for our Johnson City and Kingsport patients; this dryness can cause pain during your sexual experience if left untreated.

Does ThermiVa help with a leaky bladder?

Yes! ThermiVa can reduce mild incontinence.

Am I a good candidate for ThermiVa?

ThermiVa is appropriate for adult women of all ages who struggle with any of the following issues:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Sagging
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Stretched vaginal walls
  • Vaginal sweating
  • Mild to moderate incontinence

ThermiVa does not affect your hormones, so you can receive treatment at our Tri-Cities clinic even if you are on hormonal medication or if you’ve battled cancer in the past.

What about downtime with ThermiVa?

Because ThermiVa is a non-invasive non-surgical procedure, there is no downtime. You’re welcome to resume all your usual activities, including sex, after each appointment in our Kingsport area clinic.

When is the best time to have ThermiVa done?

No matter your age or season, you are likely able to receive ThermiVa treatment. If you’re struggling with your sex life or regular vaginal discomfort, talk to us about whether ThermiVa could be right for you.

I went to Dr Brantner for reconstruction revision. I'm very, very pleased with the results. The staff were wonderful. I can't thank them enough for taking care of my surgery and making me feel and look so much better!!! I would highly recommend Dr Brantner.
