ThermiVa™ – Your preparation guide

ThermiVa™ is the ideal procedure for women in need of vaginal rejuvenation. This treatment helps improve tightness, appearance, orgasm and moisture. Here is everything you need to know before your treatment at Ong Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, Arizona.

What to do at home before your treatment?

  1. Preparing for your ThermiVa™ treatment is not difficult. The first thing you should do is shave the area as well as you can at home. In case a razor seems scary to you, you could try an electric one.
  2. You do not have to shave the “mons pubis”, this is the area you can view in the mirror when you are standing with your legs together. Simply shave around the opening of the vagina and the lips. It’s important that you shower the day of your procedure and wash the area well with water and soap.

What will happen when I arrive at Ong Plastic Surgery?

  1. Before your procedure begins, we will take lots of pictures. Don’t worry, these will only be of your vagina and some of the legs – from the front, back, standing up, laying down and spread open in the stirrups. These photos will not be identifiable .
  2. If you’d like, you can keep your medical gown on during the procedure so your top half remains warm. Once your feet are in the stirrups, an ultrasound gel is applied before the device is placed on you. The device feels like a plastic surface moving on you and as Dr. Ong moves it over you. The radio frequency in the device heats up the area at the optimum temperature; you will feel a comforting warmth. Anytime you feel anything more than that, all you need to do is speak up and it will either be moved faster or to another area.
  3. If you have any questions about the procedure or anything else on your mind, you could talk while the device is being used. Before you realize it, the procedure will be over. Some patients have felt a bit of a pressure when the device is moved internally but once it is there you should just feel warmth.

What to do when you go home?

  1. Once your procedure is over and the gel is cleaned off, you may have more pictures taken. You can use a mirror at this point to see your results and compare these with the before pictures taken earlier.
  2. There is no downtime to your procedure. You head out the door, get home, exercise, have sex…there is no recovery period at all!
  3. Some women might notice an increased frequency of peeing after the treatment, but this goes away in a couple of days.
