ThermiRF system gains new indication

May 5, 2017

The ThermiRF temperature-controlled radiofrequency system has gained a new indication to treat vulvovaginal laxity, according to a statement from ThermiGen.

The ThermiVa system stimulates the remodeling of dermal and epidermal tissue in the vulvovaginal region, according to the statement. While symptoms of vulvovaginal laxity vary, numerous adverse effects may occur, including a reduction in lubrication, sexual function and satisfaction, along with dyspareunia and urinary incontinence associated with stress. The ThermiVa treatment can be administered in an office setting, with an electrode capable of treating internal and external structures comfortably, according to experts at ThermiGen.

The indication comes on the heels of a study showing that 93% of women reported improved vulvovaginal laxity after treatment with the system. Sexual functioning and satisfaction as assessed by the Female Sexual Function Index also improved in the cohort. Improvements were reported for all domains, including desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm, satisfaction, and pain. – by Rob Volansky

ThermiBreast is appropriate for women with moderate ‘ptosis’ or sagging of the breasts, eliminating or delaying the need for a more invasive breast lift,” says Dr. DiBernardo. “ThermiBreast can also correct breast asymmetry.”
 

Taking a closer look at ThermiVa

Based on RealSelf Worth It ratings, ThermiVa’s track record with patients is impressive. At last glance, with 164 ratings during 24 months, 95% say the radio frequency nonsurgical vaginal tightening treatment is worth it.

The RealSelf “vaginal rejuvenation” category, under which ThermiVa (Thermi Aesthetics) resides, has grown 37% year over year, with 3.8 million visits to the RealSelf website in 2016. And the number of consults has skyrocketed 52% in the vaginal rejuvenation, according to RealSelf statistics.

ThermiVa’s inventor Red Alinsod, M.D., a uro-gynecologist who practices in Laguna Beach, Calif., and is medical director for women’s health for Thermi Aesthetics, coauthored a paper in 2016 in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gyneacology of India, suggesting ThermiVa is revolutionizing vulvovaginal rejuvenation and noninvasive management of female stress urinary incontinence.

“It seems that the time has come, when women shall ever be grateful to their gynecologist for management of [stress urinary incontinence] with ThermiVa without an incision,” the authors write.

Beverly Hills, Calif., dermatologic surgeon Jason Emer, M.D., says ThermiVa has been a winning addition to his practice, which offers a range of providers experienced in noninvasive and surgical vaginal rejuvenation options.

“My patients love it,” Dr. Emer says. “The women notice a cosmetic improvement immediately because the soft tissue gets heated up, it gets swollen and immediately you get collagen production. We actually show them with a mirror before treatment; then, immediately after treatment.”

Dr. Emer says he has received calls from grateful husbands who say ThermiVa treatment restored their wives’ vaginal moisture and sensitivity.

“Now we have a subscription service, where we do monthly treatments for women… to maintain outcomes,” Dr. Emer says.

Ms. WilliamsClinical Aesthetician Carla Williams, with the plastic surgery practice Vinings Surgery Center, in Atlanta, Ga., tells much the same story about her experience offering ThermiVa.

Patients love it, she says. So much, in fact, that she no longer offers laser treatments and chemical peels at the practice because all she has time to do is ThermiVa procedures.

“Truly, we have spent nearly no advertising dollars on ThermiVa,” she says. “A couple of great RealSelf reviews and word of mouth from happy patients has driven most of this to our office. It has been a great investment.”

Ms. Williams says her patients range in age from 21 to 89.

Twenty year olds are looking for more of a cosmetic benefit, while older patients are there to address a range of concerns, from vaginal laxity and sexual dysfunction to stress urinary incontinence and overactive bladder, she says.

Ms. William’s oldest patient, an 89-year-old, was getting up two to three times a night because of overactive bladder.

“After three treatments, she said she was only having to get up once,” she says. “We've also had patients come in that survived different types of cancer. They were suffering from severe vaginal dryness, but for their safety, their doctors refrained from prescribing them estrogen creams and hormones. They hadn't had sex with their husbands, sometimes in years, because they were so dry down there. After these treatments, their natural moisture production was turned back on and sex became more comfortable for them. One of them called me and said, ‘I think you saved my marriage!’”

Health: Can this non-surgical device "sex things up" for couples?

By Krutika Behrawala | Posted 12-Dec-2016

As a city gynaecologist introduces a non-surgical device to perform aesthetic vaginal procedures, experts debate whether the Khloé Kardashian-approved ‘wand’ can revive your sex life

If you drop by at gynaecologist Dr Sejal Desai’s clinic in Sarla Hospital, Santacruz, your eyes might be drawn towards a slick stick attached to a radio-frequency machine. The 43-year-old obstetrician and gynaecologist, who has been practising surgeries since 2003, is the first in the city, and maybe only the fourth in India, to possess this instrument known as Thermiva. “It’s FDA-approved and available in India. However, it’s new and many gynaecologists may not know about it. Those who do refer to it as the wand,” she smiles, as she gears to launch Indian Academy of Vaginal Aesthetics this week (at a closed-door event with a performance by the members of The Vagina Monologues). It is an initiative to spread awareness and train doctors for different aesthetic vaginal procedures, the primary one being the non-surgical, minimally invasive Thermiva.

In April, Khloe Kardashian revealed that her sisters, who’ve had kids, used vagina laser for tightening

The vagina dialogue
“Studies show that sexual intimacy leads to lesser chances of hypertension, diabetes, depression and insomnia. In my research, I have also found that nearly 70 per cent Indian women post the age of 40 suffer from sexual dysfunction, along with orgasmic disorders or lack of libido. Many marriages deteriorate due to the lack of intimacy. So, the idea is to spread awareness about simple, non-invasive treatments to help boost sex lives,” 
she adds.

Thermiva came into spotlight this April when Kim Kardashian’s sister Khloé revealed about “a vagina lasering thing to tighten it” that her sisters used post bearing kids in a talk show. “It’s a thermal device powered by radio frequency. It heats up the stick’s metal head to a controlled temperature of up to 40°C. It can be used on vulva or in the vaginal tract. The heat helps remodel your own collagen (structural protein) and tightens your vagina. The same principle applies to the face. It also helps increase lubrication and enhance the G-spot, leading to better orgasms. Within three sittings, you can do away with wrinkles in that area too,” shares Desai, who has trained under Dr Red Alinsod at South Coast Urogynecology Centre in Los Angeles. Known for several patents in this field, Alinsod also chairs the clinical board of Thermi-Aesthetics (the product creators).

No stress
Desai asserts that the main benefit of Thermiva is to alleviate stress incontinence, an occurrence where a woman’s bladder leaks urine due to a physical activity. “Sixty per cent of Indian women suffer from this problem, and that’s only the reported cases. It occurs post pregnancy or during menopausal stages, among women above 40. A decade ago, the only way to cure it was by performing a complicated laparoscopic surgery. Then, we started using TVTO (Tension-Free Vaginal Tape-Obturator) tapes. I still routinely operate with tapes on severe cases but it’s easier to treat mild ones with this,” says Desai, who has tried it on women ranging from 18 to 83 in the last few months, since the time she brought the product here. “Three patients between 75 and 83 years complained of pro-lapse (also known as cystocele), a condition where you feel that an organ is coming out of vagina. While we didn’t see a physical change, they did feel a difference. The tightening works on first-degree pro-lapse.”

What’s the drawback?
The procedure, which involves a minimum of three sittings, can set you back by a lakh. Besides, there’s no guarantee of complete cure. “In a surgery, I can assure that the condition will get cured. Here, it depends on the person’s body tissues and collagen levels but we have seen a success rate of 85 to 90 per cent,” sums up Desai.

I Thought My Vagina Was Too Big, So I Got a Labia Lift

Best decision I ever made.

by MARIE MAGENNIS AS TOLD TO MICHELE SPONAGLE

Sep 14, 2016 

For most of my adult life, I refused to wear pants because of my enlarged vaginal lips. In medical terms, my condition is called labial hypertrophy, which means the labia are significantly larger than normal—and wearing anything tight (jeans, yoga pants, thongs) made me feel like my vagina was suffocating. Then would come irritation, followed by the predictable yeast infection. I was in constant low-frequency pain. Whether I was at work or out with friends, all I could think wasHow soon can I get home to take off these stupid effing pants?

Genetics is partly to blame. I was born that way. Then it was made worse after I gave birth to my daughter—and then I gained weight. A lot of weight. And my labia grew with me. I lost a lot of that weight about five years ago, but my vagina remained stubbornly the same.

"MAYBE I COULD FINALLY WEAR PANTS WITHOUT WISHING LIKE I COULD LEAVE MY VAGINA AT HOME."

I had considered having the surgery—a labiaplasty—to basically tuck the skin of my labia majora, but after some research, I decided I wasn't ready for that kind of commitment, despite my constant, extreme discomfort. Between my family and my career as a clinical director at a dermatology practice, I didn't have time to spend recovering from full-on surgery.

Then last year, I saw some pamphlets for a new procedure called ThermiVa—something that could *shrink* my labia. It got me thinking again. Part of it was age: I was 30 years old and ready to see if there was a real solution to my very real problem. Maybe my labia discomfort could be something I could whole-heartedly leave in my 20s. Maybe I could finally wear pants without wishing like I could leave my vagina at home.

So I booked a consultation with the plastic surgeon. It helped that she was a she. I just felt more at ease talking about something so intimate. Keep in mind, it's not like going to a doctor for a pap smear—my consultation required having my private parts exposed for an extended amount of time in front of a doctor and a nurse. Spread-eagle and completely exposed.

I learned that not everyone is a good candidate for ThermiVa. Too much or too little labia won't work, but fortunately I fell somewhere in the middle, which made me a fit. The surgeon told me more about the technology involved—radio frequency energy from a long wand is applied to tissue to gently heat up collagen in the deep layers of skin both externally and internally. It's the heat that causes the collagen to tighten and shrink.

It was $3,000 for three sessions performed three to five weeks apart. There's no downtime, no recovery period, no anesthetic, and each session would take around half an hour.

It was a lot of money. But it was worth it.

 

"FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE WHILE HAVING SEX, I WAS ABLE TO HAVE INTERNAL ORGASMS—A LOT OF THEM ACTUALLY. ONE AFTER THE OTHER AFTER THE OTHER."

Initially, I wasn't even going to tell my partner—this decision was mine alone to make and I didn't want any additional opinions. I already knew what his response was going to be, anyway. He would say something like, "you don't have to do this" and "I love you just the way you are." Well, the way I was going to be was with a smaller labia. My choice.

Buuuuut eventually I gave in and told him. He accepted it, and I bravely stepped up to bat for my pants-wearing future.

I had zero pain. None. The only feeling I had was a heating sensation, but it didn't get to the point where it was uncomfortable. There wasn't even any nail-biting prep. Just a bit of lube applied to the wand delivering the radio frequency energy. All I had to do is put my clothes back on and go out the door. It was something I literally did on my lunch hour.

I didn't see a difference right away, but eventually I noticed that my labia majora had shrunken down to be less than half the size they once were. And once I had sex, I realized something huge had changed.

For the first time in my life, I was able to have internal orgasms—a lot of them actually. One after the other after the other. They blew my mind. I couldn't believe what was happening—what new things my body—and my vagina!—could do.

Not to mention wear pants.

A Closer Look at ThermiVa, a new treatment for women!

Posted: Mar 22, 2016 12:49 AM by FOX 12 Good Morning Oregon.

We all know that age brings physical changes to our bodies. For women, both age and childbirth can play a role in these changes. Some of the changes can be difficult to live with and even embarrassing. But a new treatment called Thermiva is here to help

Way to Tighten your Vagina Without Plastic Surgery! it's Thermi Va!

Each year, experts predict thousands of women will seek surgical vaginoplasty to rejuvenate their vaginas to repair the loss of elasticity that can occur over time after sex, childbirth and certain medical conditions. The average cost of surgical vaginoplasty can range from $3,000 to $10,00, reports the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and the procedure is not covered by insurance and often requires patients to go under anesetcha.

For those looking for less invasive ways to tighten the vaginal canal, there are other non-surgical options to consider. We asked gynecologist Carolyn A. DeLucia, MD, FACOG, part of the team who performs vaginal rejuvenations at VSPOT MediSpa, a ladies only vaginal rejuvenation spa in New York City.
 
“A ‘vaginal rejuvenation’ is a non-reconstructive vaginoplasty,” says DeLucia. “These are the newest non-surgical technologies that are available to tighten the vaginal canal to increase sexual satisfaction.” Get ready to take notes.

Electric Stimulation
“Electrical stimulation will not directly tighten the vagina, but it can be utilized in a specific situation to help begin to stimulate and exercise the muscles of the vaginal/pelvic floor, aka the levator muscles,” says DeLucia. “There is an at home device called the APEX that can be used in place of Kegels to help aid in reducing leakage.”

ThermiVa
“ThermiVa uses radio frequency to gently heat tissue to tighten the vaginal canal,” says DeLucia. “For best results, three 30-minute sessions are recommended. Although some women do see results after three treatments, the history of radio frequency shows that results tend to be short term.”

Femilift
Treat vaginal looseness in three easy, pain-free, ten-minute sessions with the Femilift,” says DeLucia. “A wand is used to emit a 360-degree fractional Co2 laser throughout the vaginal canal promoting the production of collagen. As collagen is produced, elasticity aids in tightening the vaginal walls increasing friction that increases sexual satisfaction and reduces leakage from urinary incontinence.” The owner of the VSPOT, Cindy Barshop’s team of top women gynecologists, say clients are extremely satisfied and are left Kegel-free.

Would you try a vaginoplasty (surgical or none)? Let’s talk about it below.

The Surprising Plastic Surgery Trend 2016! Thermi Smooth is mentioned!


From on-demand Botox to non-invasive neck lifts, the future of cosmetic enhancement is all about efficiency

Written by Kaitlyn Frey

Getting a blowout on-demand is so 2015. This year, it’s all about the Botox concierge. One company in particular, Refined Aesthetics, is making the quick-fix cosmetic procedure easier than ever before by offering at-home appointments for those who can’t squeeze in a traditional trip to the doctor. 

The service is just one example of a growing trend. With jam-packed schedules and busy lives, undergoing an invasive procedure with a long recovery time—or even carving out a few hours for a pre-surgery consultation—isn’t ideal. Luckily, fancy futuristic technology and a slew of new treatments are giving way to ultra-convenient cosmetic enhancements. (Lunchtime neck lift, anyone?)

Check out four companies that are changing the face of plastic surgery. 

Zwivel 

If you’ve been considering a cosmetic procedure, but haven’t had the time to find the perfect doctor, that’s where Zwivel comes in. The app, co-founded by Gary Breslow, a board-certified plastic surgeon, offers virtual consultations with cosmetic doctors. The traditional consultation process can be incredibly tedious for both doctors and patients, says Breslow, and still, more than 60 percent of consultations don’t even result in the procedure being performed.

“It basically gives patients a ‘pre-consultation,’ where they can search for multiple doctors, indicate any concerns or desired procedures, and upload videos and pictures of problem-areas,” Breslow says. “The doctor will give the user feedback, estimated fees, and recommendations.”

The personalized, virtual feedback makes taking the plunge into a cosmetic procedure that much easier and convenient.

ClearLift 

Thanks to its skin rejuvenating, laser technology, ClearLift promises results similar to a neck lift without the long recovery time. The non-invasive (and painless) procedure takes no longer than ten minutes. And the results are immediate.

“It’s perfect for people who don’t need a full neck lift, but have wrinkly skin around the neck that could use some tightening,” says plastic surgeon Robert Schwarcz M.D., who invested in the technology for his New York City office. “People will come in during their lunchtime, go back to work, and no one will be the wiser they had anything done.”

Refined Aesthetics

This upscale service, created by neurologist Daniel Ahoubim M.D., caters to your cosmetic needs anywhere, whether it’s in your home or office. “To a certain extent people want a level of privacy. Some people don’t want to necessarily be seen coming out of a waiting room after injections,” Ahoubim says. “And others just don’t have the time to come into an office. So getting these services done concierge-style has become more popular.” 

As of now, Refined Aesthetics offers Botox, dermal fillers, platelet rich plasma injections, and other non-invasive treatments in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Ahoubim is working on recruiting doctors across the country, so anyone can get personal, private cosmetic treatments, no matter where they live. 

ThermiSmooth

Thermismooth—a technology that promises to smooth and tighten skin—involves swiping a pen-like device in circular motions across target areas. The skin’s tissue is heated, causing its collagen to reform and elastin to strengthen. Sessions typically last between 15 and 30 minutes and the technology can be used anywhere on the body—from the face and neck, to the thighs and arms.

The best part? It feels like a hot stone massage.

Gigi Shaker, medical esthetician at Z. Paul Lorenc Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, has patients stop by not only to smooth their skin, but also for Thermismooth’s relaxing element. “So many clients close their eyes and fall asleep during the treatment because it’s so relaxing,” she says. “I love when that happens. Where in Manhattan can you go for a half hour and fall asleep?”
