ThermiVa as a Treatment for Urinary Incontinence

Thermiva :- ThermiVa is a temperature controlled radio frequency treatment of the vagina that can be used to treat mild urinary incontinence or bladder leakage. This painless, non-surgical treatment uses radiofrequency energy which helps tighten the underlying collagen and supportive tissues of the vagina, urethra and tissues beneath the bladder. Thermiva can help reduce and even eliminate bladder leakage and while improving vaginal moisture and laxity. Some patients have reported seeing results after 1 to 2 treatments, however 3 treatments are recommended for optimal results.
