Frequently Asked Questions
What type of treatment is ThermiVa?
ThermiVa is a non-surgical treatment that uses radiofrequency heat energy to treat the following symptoms:
- Vaginal laxity, including looseness of external vaginal lips, the labia and the vulva.
- Urinary incontinence as a result of weak pelvic muscles
- Post pregnancy vaginal looseness
- Aesthetic improvement of the appearance of the labia minora and labia majora, which are the outer lips of the vulva
- Sexual health improvement, including stronger, more intense orgasms and improved sexual stimulation
What happens during the ThermiVa treatment?
A specialized probe is introduced into the labia, vulva and vaginal wall. This probe transmits radio frequency energy to these areas, which initiates collagen and elastin contraction, while simultaneously remodeling the appearance of the vagina. Scientifically, this treatment is similar to the ThermiRF treatment, which promotes skin tightening of the face and body.
What will the ThermiVa treatment cost?
About $1500 for three sessions for the external vulva tightening and $3000 for external vulva and labia plus internal vaginal tightening. Note that at least three treatments are recommended for optimal results. In some cases, further treatments and/or yearly maintenance treatments may be recommended.
