ThermiVa is a non-invasive, non-hormonal treatment that uses controlled radiofrequency energy to gently heat tissue, with little to no discomfort and no downtime. When heated, collagen fibrils will denature and contract, which is believed to lead to the observed tissue tightening. The hand piece width is about 0.5” and was thoughtfully designed with comfort in mind. Each treatment uses a disposable handpiece, for hygiene and cleanliness. The device can be used on both internal and external vaginal tissue.
Over 100,000 ThermiVa treatments have been performed worldwide since 2016. Many studies have been published in peer-reviewed journals demonstrating its safety and efficacy. Benefits of a ThermiVa treatment may be noted soon after the first treatment and continue for several months afterwards. Three monthly treatments are recommended with a maintenance treatment performed once per year thereafter.
The ThermiVa procedure is a quick, in-office treatment that only takes between 15 – 30 minutes. Our patients tell us that the procedure is virtually painless, and it requires no anesthesia or medication. The main feeling is one of gentle warmth during the treatment itself.
There is no expected downtime for ThermiVa treatments and you can plan to return to your normal daily activities right away.
Yes! Thermiva can be used to help tighten the labial folds and outer vaginal opening in addition to the inner vaginal tissue.

ThermiVa is appropriate for adult women of all ages.
While each person’s situation is unique, we typically recommend three ThermiVa treatments, spaced one month apart for optimal results. That said, many patients report improvement after the first treatment.
