ThermiVa Q & A

ThermiVa is an aesthetic technology that uses energy, or heat in the form of radio frequency to improve your intimate area. The results are long lasting and require minimal downtime. It’s the latest in vaginal rejuvenation technology.

Childbirth and the natural aging process often cause looseness or discomfort for women. However, that discomfort does not have to go untreated. ThermiVa is a safe, non-invasive, non-surgical way to end discomfort and rejuvenate your vaginal area. With ThermiVa, you can get back to your normal activities right away thanks to the gentle treatment provided by radiofrequency energy.

  • Vaginal discomfort
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Pain with intercourse
  • Vaginal laxity
  • Vaginal atrophy
  • Pelvic pain
  • Bladder leakage

How does ThermiVa work?

The ThermiVa® device is a softly curved probe to provide maximum comfort to women during treatment. The radiofrequency energy is emitted into the vaginal wall and vulvar tissues, where it is converted to controlled heat.

This process stimulates the tissues in the internal and external vaginal areas to shrink into smaller bundles, tightening and strengthening treated areas. The heat also promotes the production of collagen beneath the surface, gradually improving the structure of the tissues over time.

Through a series of about three treatments scheduled approximately one month apart, most patients experience alleviation of their symptoms, increased sensation during intimacy, decreased incontinence, and improved overall comfort. In certain cases, the treatment can be used to increase vaginal tightness.
