What is ThermiVA?
ThermiVA is a non-surgical temperature controlled vaginal tightening device using radiofrequency (RF) energy. ThermiVA is performed in our private office using only local anesthesia. There is no need for sedation or general anesthesia, but available if requested. ThermiVA uses the same technology as ThermTight and ThermiSmooth, which has been used for years in other areas to reduce the effects of aging such as the face, neck, arms, and abdomen.
How is it performed?
During ThermiVA, we use a single use non surgical applicator that is designed to fit the labia and vagina.
How does it work?
ThermiVa uses controlled precise heat energy generated from the Radiofrequency (RF) device to slowly and safely heat the labia and vaginal area. The heat is delivered via a small wand with a sensor tip, which is connected to a computer. The computer ensures and monitor the heat energy delivered. The temperature is controlled to stimulate labial and vaginal tightening. The energy creates immediate skin tightening, stimulation of new and tighter collagen, and tighter and younger looking skin of the labia and vagina. During the treatment, patients are awake and comfortable. Our patients compare the treatment to transvaginal ultrasound.
How many treatments do I need?
Three (3) separate sessions are needed for optimal results. Each session is 4-6 weeks apart. Each session last about 30 – 45 minutes.

Does it really work?
Yes. Several clinical studies of ThermiVA has shown it to be safe. Questionnaire of ThermiVA patients showed that all had significant benefit and measurable change. All would do it again and would recommend it to others.
How long does it last?
Studies shows that the effects of ThermiVA last 9-12 months. Effects were maintained by touchups once or twice a year. These patients say that they would do it again.
Are there complications?
Since 2009, there has been no reported major complications. Patients are awake and comfortable during the treatment. ThermiVA is non-ablative, painless, there is no anesthesia, no downtime, no lasers, no discharge, no sloughing off of the vaginal mucosa.
We offer other vaginal tightening procedure such as laser and surgical vaginal rejuvenation. For those looking for vaginal tightening procedures, its better to be evaluated and offered the correct treatment for the problem. ThermiVA is one of the tools we offer. I agree, “if all you have is a hammer….. everything looks like a nail” Do your homework to make sure your plastic surgeon offers other options for your problem.
