Some women experience loose or stretched vaginal tissue after childbirth or simply as a result of age or genetics. Others may deal with dryness or pain during intercourse. These can range from being mild problems to major aggravators that can have a negative impact on overall quality of life, particularly sexually. Having tissue laxity in the vaginal region can affect a woman’s confidence and body image.
ThermiVa is the ultimate non-surgical fix for vaginal laxity, dryness, and bladder control.
There is no need to keep quiet about this once ‘elephant in the room’ topic. Our staff is here to help by providing women with an easy way to enhance the appearance and function of their vagina. Contact our office today to set up a consultation!
ABOUT THERMIVA VAGINAL REJUVENATION LASER
ThermiVa is a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation laser that utilizes radiofrequency energy to improve the appearance and functionality of the vagina. ThermiVa treats vulvovaginal atrophy symptoms which are often caused by age, natural childbirth, menopause, or heredity.
What is ThermiVa®?
ThermiVa® is a new, amazing, non surgical solution for vaginal rejuvenation. Treatments are done in the office, and are quick and easy. Women of all ages have used ThermiVa® treatment to successfully reclaim their bodies and increase their confidence.
ThermiVa® is done by our Licenced, experienced female Medical Doctor discrete in a series of three short treatments, spaced about one month apart, with a touch-up done annually.
ThermiVa® is a wonderful addition to our suite of services that help our patients to live their best lives.
How does ThermiVa® work?
We gently apply the small tip to the area being treated. This tip emits a radio frequency , gently heating and tightening the treatment area. It's non invasive, non ablative, and non surgical - with no anesthesia required. Patients feel very little during the treatment other than the pressure and sensation of the wand.
Blood flow is stimulated to the treated areas, which can work to improve the appearance of your labia, can help resolve minor incontinence issues (such a peeing when you sneeze or exercise), can help your feel more lubricated, and can increase sensation.
Treatment sessions generally last between 20-30 minutes, and the entire appointment typically lasts less than an hour. You can resume normal activities immediately post treatment, including sex.
How is this different from other Vaginal Rejuvenation treatment?
There are a myriad of options out there if you Google "vaginal rejuvenation": Vaginoplasty, labiaplasty, the O Shot®, Mona Lisa Touch®, and hormone therapy...to name just a few. How is ThermiVa different, and is it best for you? Well, to begin with, it's nonsurgical - unlike most vaginoplasty and labiaplasty procedures - and it helps with stimulation. This means no downtime, no anesthesia, and a typically a fraction of the cost. There are no painful lasers involved as with the Mona Lisa Touch®. Hormone therapy is a whole different animal with potentially harmful and dangerous side effects.
As we mentioned above, ThermiVa® is completely non invasive and non surgical. It can be used to treat both inside and outside the vagina. Although 3 sessions are recommended, many of our patients see improvement after just 1 visit to our office.
What can ThermiVa® do?
Many women notice changes in their feminine wellness after childbirth and through the natural aging process. Physical changes in the vaginal area can be the result of a particularly difficult vaginal childbirth, multiple births, and the effects of menopause. These changes can rob women of their feminine well-being and happiness, and can affect their partners as well. ThermiVa® has been specifically designed to tackle all of these issues, and more!

FAQ's about ThermiVa®
Can I use ThermiVa® if I'm breastfeeding?
Yes, women who are currently nursing can get ThermiVa® treatments. Radio frequencies will not affect the production of breastmilk.
How soon after childbirth can I get ThermiVa®?
Assuming an uneventful, normal vaginal delivery - the recommendation is 6 weeks post birth.
Is there a "right" age for the treatment?
No, there isn't a "right" age. As long as you're 18 years of age or older, ThermiVa® could be right for you. The treatment is customized based on your needs and is safe for both pre and post menopausal women.
Can ThermiVa® help with orgasmic dysfunction?
Yes, it can. It has been reported by a number of patients that it takes about 1/2 to 1/3 less time to achieve orgasm. Women with normal orgasmic function have also reported longer and more coordinated muscle contractions.
Can I get ThermiVa® if I use an IUD?
Yes, IUD's are fine because they are not directly placed in the vaginal cavity where the procedure is formed. The radio frequency used by the patented wand will not affect the efficacy of the IUD either.
Will it change my normal menstrual cycle?
Most women have no change at all to their normal schedule - with the same length and flow as before the treatment. Some spotting may occur after treatment, which is normal.
