This non-surgical “feminine rejuvenation” treatment tightens lax vaginal skin using the same proven radio-frequency technology that’s been effective for anti-aging procedures. ThermiVa is an FDA-cleared treatment that delivers controlled thermal energy to the labia and vagina to safely tighten and rejuvenate the skin. Lax vaginal skin, whether caused by aging, childbirth or hormonal changes, can cause women to be self-conscious about the appearance of their genital area and experience a decrease in sensations, resulting in diminished sexual satisfaction. With ThermiVa, we can improve labial, vulvar & vaginal laxity with a simple painless, in office treatment utilizing a small wand, smaller than the size of a finger.
With multiple benefits, ThermiVa is also very effective for incontinence and increasing moisture to tissues through an increase in blood supply to the area. A noticeable improvement in texture and tone is reported. Thermal Neogenesis-RF is utilized, up regulating and effecting over 8,000 nerves in the vaginal walls, resulting in an increase in overall nerve sensitivity. Arteries are expanded, allowing more lubrication, decreasing dryness and atrophy. Collagen is stimulated and increased in the soft tissues, leading to more overall tissue support, remodeling and elasticity.
This treatment can be performed on all ages, 6-8 weeks after pregnancy and results last approximately 1 year or longer. There is no pain and no downtime and you can resume normal activity immediately after. Treatments last approximately 30 minutes and you can expect an immediate contraction of collagen.
Doctors have used heat to stimulate collagen growth for years as a skin-tightening procedure. ThermiVA is a temperature-controlled treatment performed in our office that requires no downtime. It’s an ideal option for women concerned about vaginal sensation but who don’t want to undergo surgical labia tightening. The complete ThermiVa procedure includes 3 treatments spaced a month apart.
ThermiVa® is a quick, non-invasive, non-ablative treatment delivering provider-controlled radiofrequency energy using a thoughtfully designed handpiece to gently heat tissue.
Vaginal (internal) Tightening: ThermiVa tightens the vagina at the opening of the full length of the vagina reducing laxity that is noticeable to patient and partner.
Vulvar/Labial (external) Tightening: ThermiVa will tighten the external labial tissues and reduce sagging or lax skin. It results in noticeably softer and smoother skin. Patients experience more comfort in tight clothing and less self-consciousness in yoga pants and bikinis.
Decreased Dryness: ThermiVa adds collagen and elasticity which results in softer and thicker skin and normalizes moisture both internally and externally. For those experiencing Vaginal/Vulvar Dryness or Atrophic Vaginitis, ThermiVa makes daily life and sexual intercourse more comfortable.
Reduced incontinence or Leakage Accidents: Patients experience reduced accidents and leakage and even urge symptoms after treatment with ThermiVa. Women diagnosed with mild to moderate stress incontinence (Stage II) may benefit from the procedure and avoid the need for surgical options.
Increased Sexual Satisfaction: Patients can expect increased vaginal sensitivity, more coordinated and stronger muscular contractions, and the ability to achieve stronger orgasms in a shorter time period.
Hand Piece Size: The width of the handpiece is about 0.5”. The specially designed handpiece has a thoughtful design with comfort in mind.
Active Tip: The small metal square on the bottom of the electrode is the active tip – this is the area that will gently heat the tissue via the emission of radiofrequency energy.
