"Thank you for updating my old body and making me feel pretty!!"- B.S. / Office Visit / May 19, 2020
"I highly recommend Dr. John O'Brien. I've had two separate occurrences of basal cell cancer on my ears due to too much sun over time. These were about 8 months apart and unrelated. The first occurrence: Dr. O'Brien performed surgery to remove it. The surgery was performed on the day that there was a mobile lab at his office and Dr. O was able to test tissue samples on the spot to ensure all the cancer was removed. Dr. O'Brien not only removed the cancer but did a fantastic job with the appearance of my ear such that one would never even notice any evidence of a surgical procedure. Eight months later: I had MOHS surgery of the ear at my dermatologist and Dr. O'Brien performed a complete repair the following day. Again, the appearance of my ear is such that one would never notice any evidence of a surgical procedure. I look great and am cancer free. Many thanks to Dr. O'Brien and his terrific staff. Highly recommended for any type of procedure. Absolutely first class!"- R.B. / Healthgrades / Apr 14, 2020

Procedure Technique for ThermiVa
The best candidates for ThermiVa are women with light to moderate vaginal laxity. It's also a great solution for those unsure about having more kids and who wish to prevent the recovery that accompanies a surgery. In order to be considered for ThermiVa, you should probably be at least three months post-partum from your most recent childbirth, be finished having children, have a drop in sexual pleasure, and also have loose outer or inner vaginal tissue.
ThermiVa Restore and Revive
Completed by Dr. O'Brien 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 treatment, 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 maintain the safety of your vaginal tissue. After the therapy, patients must avoid intercourse for no less than a day but may continue their regular activities.
What to Expect from ThermiVa
Women that choose ThermiVa should expect to find results about three weeks after their final session. Though follow-up sessions could be required, effects may last around two years. The outcome will be altered if the patient gets pregnant or gives birth vaginally after the procedure.
Ideal Candidates for ThermiVa
How much does ThermiVa cost?
The expense of ThermiVa may differ from patient to patient based on the number of therapy sessions needed to achieve their goals. After your personalized treatment plan is made, we'll go over the exact cost of your ThermiVa procedure. We'll also address any questions you have concerning your out-of-pocket expenses.
What's the distinction between ThermiVa and labiaplasty?
ThermiVa is more fitting for females who are not sure about whether or not they will have more kids as it's not as costly, faster, and doesn't require a healing time. Even though ThermiVa is a valuable treatment choice for females who have mild vaginal laxity, it might not be the very best choice for women with acute laxity. A labiaplasty is the surgical removal of the extra skin around the vaginal region and might be better for women with major vaginal skin laxity.
How many ThermiVa sessions will I need?
For great effects, three scheduled ThermiVa sessions spaced approximately one month apart is suggested. After the three primary sessions, yearly touch ups might be required to maintain effects. Furthermore, the natural aging process, major weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and childbirth may impact effects.
What conditions are treated with ThermiVa?
By producing a tighter genital region, ThermiVa may also treat many additional issues that may have been caused by aging and other aspects. ThermiVa was made to strengthen vaginal laxity in addition to vulvar or labial laxity to firm up the labial skin and decrease any sagging. Additionally, it may reduce dryness and incontinence to minimize any accidents, leakage, or urge symptoms. Furthermore, ThermiVa can address orgasmic difficulties or sexual dysfunction by helping to enhance sensitivity and improve your capacity to reach orgasm.
How does ThermiVa work?
ThermiVa utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy to warm up the internal layers of your skin from within your body. Utilizing the controlled and closely monitored delivery of radiofrequency energy directly where it's needed most enables the cells to be tightened under the epidermis. With radiofrequency energy, there's not as much pain for the individual and exceptional results are attained.
With the help of ThermiVa, you no longer need to suffer from loose vaginal tissues or operational issues. There's no downtime required, unlike with surgical procedures for vaginal tightening. Enjoy more confidence following your ThermiVa appointment when your vagina and/or labia gets tighter.
