What Is ThermiVa?

ThermiVa is a radiofrequency device that is used to tighten and tone a woman’s most intimate areas, including the labia minora, labia majora, and the vaginal wall. The procedure is completely nonsurgical and painless.

Who Can Benefit From ThermiVa?

ThermiVa is appropriate for adult women of all ages, but it’s especially popular with women who have noticed a loss of tone in the vagina and vulva, whether after childbirth or due to the natural consequences of aging. Some patients choose to include a ThermiVa treatment as part of a mommy makeover procedure that combines body contouring and breast surgery. ThermiVa can also help with secondary conditions commonly reported by our patients:

  • Occasional incontinence, especially when sneezing, coughing, or laughing
  • Diminished sexual satisfaction and enjoyment
  • Vaginal dryness

During your consultation, your ThermiVa provider will discuss your concerns with you. You’ll also review any current or past medical conditions, as well as medications you may take. An open discussion about your history helps us perform your procedure as safely and effectively as possible.

There are a few contraindications for ThermiVa. The procedure is not recommended if you’re currently pregnant or nursing, have an active urinary tract or sexually transmitted infection, or have recently had an abnormal pap smear.

The ThermiVa Procedure

ThermiVa is performed here in our Houston office and doesn’t require any sort of special preparations, anesthesia, or aftercare. Your treatment provider, either our female aesthetician or a female nurse, uses a sterile, single-use handpiece to direct radiofrequency energy to the precise areas you’d like to treat.

If you’re bothered by vaginal laxity, your provider uses the handpiece to tighten and tone the interior walls. If you prefer to limit your treatment area to the labia, the ThermiVa handpiece will exclusively treat the exterior tissue. During this time, you feel a mild sensation of warmth. The entire treatment lasts for about 30 minutes.

What Is Recovery Like After ThermiVa?

After your treatment, no downtime is needed. You can return to your regular activities immediately, including sexual intercourse.

How Long Does It Take for ThermiVa To Work?

Many women report a distinct improvement in as little as 1 day. Results continue to improve for about 2 weeks as the treated tissues respond to the radiofrequency energy.

How Long Do ThermiVa Results Last?

The results from ThermiVa last approximately 1 year, although patient experiences vary. Over time, the natural effects of aging may warrant additional “touch-ups.” We are happy to discuss an approximate timeline for maintenance treatments during your consultation.
