What is ThermiVa


ThermiVa is the rejuvenation of vaginal tissue. Excessive stretching of the vaginal area is not uncommon after vaginal birth or aging. ThermiVa treatments use radiofrequency energy to gently heat the tissue, without discomfort or downtime. Non-invasive, non-ablative, non-surgical, and no anesthesia are required. The procedure is conveniently performed in our office and delivered at your comfort level. It is performed on both internal and external vaginal tissue.


ThermiVa May Treat:


  • Mild to Moderate Stress Incontinence –reduces accidents and leakage and may reduce urge symptoms. Along with Kegel exercises women may avoid the use of mesh slings in their vaginas.

  • Vaginal Laxity – tightens the vagina at the opening and the full length of the vagina that is noticeable to patient and partner.

  • Vulvar/Labial Laxity –tightens the labial tissues and reduces sagging. It results in softer and smoother skin that is very noticeable. Patients are more comfortable in tight clothing.

  • Vaginal/Vulvar Dryness or Atrophic Vaginitis – adds softer and thicker skin and relieves dryness without the use of hormones.

  • Sexual or Orgasmic Dysfunction –increases sensitivity and strengthens muscular contractions, leading to greater sexual satisfaction for women and their partners.
