For women who experience vaginal laxity, sexual dysfunction, and related problems there is hope. Technological advances have made quick and painless treatment possible.
What is ThermiVa™?
ThermiVa™ is a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure for women who experience vaginal laxity, sexual dysfunction, and related problems. Using a state-of-the-art radio frequency technology, ThermiVa™ can be used to treat the following:
- Laxity in the vagina
- Orgasm problems
- Dryness in the vagina
- Sexual disfunction
- Leaky bladder
- Moderate to mild symptoms of stress-related incontinence
ThermiVa™ is the first pain-free option to treat these conditions that involve no surgery or recovery period. Controlled thermal energy minimizes side effects, and may result in cosmetic enhancements to the labia.
How ThermiVa™ Works
ThermiVa™ warms the temperature of the vaginal tissue and labia with a unique applicator that is used to gently and slowly heat the inner surface. This stimulates collagen production in the tissue, tightening it. Treatment requires no anesthesia and is pain-free, meaning no recovery time is necessary. Although full results take multiple treatments, improvements can usually be seen after just one visit.
Is ThermiVa™ Safe?
ThermiVa™ is FDA approved as a safe, non-surgical treatment option for laxity of the vagina. ThermiVa™ requires no downtime, and patients may even resume sexual activity the same day as a treatment session.
The Results From ThermiVa™ Last
Results typically last 9 months to a year after the third procedure is complete. However, maintenance treatments can be repeated yearly to maintain results.
