ThermiVa is an in-office, non-surgical procedure for labia and vaginal tightening. A radio frequency generator, made by Thermi Aesthetics, powers a “S” shaped hand piece that tightens external and internal vulvovaginal tissue via a thermistor tip which is able to deliver controlled hear. The tip has gentle curves that provide comfort.
ThermiVa has been found to be effective in helping reduce vaginal dryness and atrophy, reducing urinary leakage, and helping improve symptoms or orgasmic dysfunction. It may also help reduce mild to moderate pelvic prolapse symptoms by shrinkage of vaginal tissues and helping improve muscular coordination and strength. It can also help the external appearance of the labia.
Traditional rejuvenation usually is surgical which requires cutting of the area to be reshaped and stitching back together. Also laser rejuvenation has been performed which cause ablation of the vaginal walls and takes weeks to heal. Thermiva is completely nonsurgical, has no cutting or sutures and the skin and mucosa is not broken down, so no healing is required. In fact, some patients see IMMEDIATE results.

"I AM SO VERY EXCITED AFTER MY FIRST TREATMENT OF THERMIVA. I COULD SEE A DIFFERENCE IN THE APPEARANCE, IT WAS MORE YOUTHFUL IMMEDIATELY. I ALSO COULD FEEL THE DIFFERENCE DURING SEX AS WELL. IT WAS AMAZING! THERE WAS NO DOWN TIME AND THE FIRST NIGHT I SLEPT WITHOUT HAVING TO GO TO THE BATHROOM. I HAD VAGINAL BIRTHS AND WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND WOMEN TO HAVE THIS TREATMENT. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT THE SECOND TREATMENT DOES."
