What is ThermiVa?

ThermiVa is a non-surgical, non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) treatment designed to tighten and rejuvenate the vaginal area and improve overall vaginal health. The technology utilizes controlled, therapeutic heat to stimulate collagen production, improve blood flow, and tighten tissue.

Benefits of ThermiVa / What Can ThermiVa Do for Me?

ThermiVa offers a range of benefits for women seeking to improve their vaginal health and overall quality of life, including:

  • Tightening and toning of vaginal tissue, improving vaginal laxity and sensation
  • Reducing vaginal dryness, discomfort during intercourse, and urinary incontinence
  • Restoring natural lubrication and improving sexual function
  • Boosting collagen production, which can lead to improved skin texture and tone in the treated area
  • Non-surgical and non-invasive, with no downtime or recovery period required
  • No need for anesthesia or pain medication during treatment
  • Suitable for women of all ages and stages of life, including postmenopausal women and those who have recently given birth

ThermiVa Candidates / Am I a Candidate for ThermiVa?

ThermiVa is an ideal treatment for women who are seeking to improve their vaginal health, restore sexual function, and enhance their overall quality of life. Good candidates for our Atlanta ThermiVa treatment may experience one or more of the following issues:

  • Vaginal laxity or looseness
  • Urinary incontinence or leakage
  • Reduced sensation or sexual function
  • Vaginal dryness or discomfort during intercourse
  • Sagging or laxity of the external genitalia
  • Reduced skin texture or tone in the treated area

There are few contraindications for ThermiVa, as women who are pregnant, have an active infection or herpes outbreak, or have a pacemaker or internal defibrillator may not be eligible for treatment. It’s important to discuss any health issues or concerns with your medical provider before undergoing ThermiVa treatment.

Consultation and Preparation

Before undergoing treatment with ThermiVa Atlanta patients will typically have a consultation to determine whether they are a good candidate for the procedure. During the consultation, we will review your medical history, discuss any concerns or issues you may have, and outline the details of the treatment.

You may be asked to prepare for the treatment by refraining from sexual activity for a certain period of time before and after the procedure, as well as avoiding certain medications or supplements that could increase the risk of bleeding or bruising. We will also recommend specific pre-treatment care, such as hydration or topical numbing cream, to minimize discomfort during the procedure.


ThermiVa is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that usually takes about 30 minutes to complete. Before the procedure begins, a numbing cream or gel may be applied to the treatment area to help minimize any discomfort if you choose. However, many patients report little to no discomfort during the procedure itself.

During the procedure, a small handheld device is inserted into the vagina, which delivers controlled radiofrequency energy to the targeted tissue. The energy heats the tissue, which stimulates collagen production, improves blood flow, and tightens the tissue in the treatment area. The device is then moved along the external genitalia to deliver RF energy to the labia majora and clitoral hood as well.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

You may see the full results of ThermiVa treatment after a series of three treatments spaced around four weeks apart. Some patients may experience improvements after a single treatment, but multiple treatments are generally recommended for optimal results. You may experience some mild redness, swelling, or sensitivity in the treatment area immediately after the procedure, but these side effects typically resolve within a few hours.

After the procedure, you can resume your daily activities immediately. Avoid sexual activity for at least 24-48 hours after treatment and any strenuous exercise or activities that could cause excessive sweating or irritation in the treatment area.

To maintain your results, follow a healthy lifestyle that includes proper hydration, a balanced diet, and regular exercise. Consider follow-up treatments once or twice a year to maintain your results over time.

ThermiVa FAQs

Can I get treatment with ThermiVa if I am breastfeeding?

There are no side effects with ThermiVa when breastfeeding.

Does RF energy negatively affect breast milk production?

You can still receive RF energy if you’re breastfeeding.

What is the recommended treatment for post vaginal delivery?

ThermiVa treatment can be performed as early as six weeks after delivery, but it’s important to wait until your body has fully healed before undergoing any type of vaginal rejuvenation procedure.

Can women experiencing painful intercourse benefit from ThermiVa?

Yes! One of the primary benefits of ThermiVa treatment is improved sexual function and reduced pain during intercourse. The radiofrequency energy helps stimulate collagen production and increase blood flow to the vaginal area, resulting in improved lubrication and sensitivity.

What is the recommended treatment for undiagnosed pelvic pain?

It’s important to consult with your healthcare provider if you’re experiencing pelvic pain before undergoing any treatment. Undiagnosed pelvic pain could be a symptom of an underlying condition that needs medical attention.

Is there a recommended age range for people seeking treatment with ThermiVa?

There is no specific age range for ThermiVa treatments. Women of all ages who are experiencing vaginal laxity, dryness, or urinary incontinence may benefit from the procedure.

Can a patient receive treatment with ThermiVa if they have a proper IUD placement?

Absolutely, ThermiVa treatments can be administered to patients with an appropriately placed IUD. However, it is critical that you inform your healthcare provider before beginning the therapeutic process.

How is a prolapsed uterus diagnosis made?

The diagnosis of prolapsed uterus should be made by a healthcare provider through a physical exam and possibly imaging tests. It’s important to discuss any concerns about prolapse with your healthcare provider before considering ThermiVa or any other treatment option.

Should a patient have had a recent pap smear before starting ThermiVa treatment?

It’s generally recommended that patients have had a recent pap smear - within the last two years - before undergoing any vaginal rejuvenation treatment, including ThermiVa. This ensures that there are no underlying health issues that need to be addressed before proceeding with the procedure.

Can a patient who has Lichen Sclerosus receive ThermiVa treatment?

Yes! ThermiVa is actually an excellent complementary therapy for Lichen Sclerosus. The gentle radiofrequency energy heat is applied to the affected areas of the vulva and vagina, generating tissue contraction and stimulation of collagen production.

Is it common to suffer from vaginal laxity?

Vaginal laxity is a common condition that can affect women of all ages. It can be caused by factors such as aging, childbirth, and hormonal changes.

How do I know if I am a candidate for treatment with ThermiVa?

Women who are experiencing symptoms such as vaginal laxity, urinary incontinence, or dryness may be good candidates for ThermiVa. It is also safe for women who have had children or are going through menopause.

If I am on hormone replacement therapy, do I need to stop or pause my medications before starting ThermiVa?

No! Women who are on hormone replacement therapy can still undergo ThermiVa treatments without stopping their medication.

Research has indicated that for women on birth control for an extended period of time, there are correlations between vaginal dryness and orgasm dysfunction, due to medical concerns such as PCOS. Is ThermiVa able to help with these issues, and does the patient need to stop taking birth control for this treatment?

While ThermiVa may not directly address this issue, it can help with vaginal dryness and overall sexual satisfaction by increasing blood flow and stimulating collagen production.

How does ThermiVa affect urinary stress incontinence?

ThermiVa works by strengthening the muscles and tissues around the bladder and urethra. This can help reduce or eliminate leakage caused by physical activity or other movements that put pressure on the bladder.

Why do some patients experience spotting after treatment?

If the ThermiVa device hits the cervix, this could lead to spotting.

Does ThermiVa treatment affect the menstrual cycle?

There is no evidence to suggest that ThermiVa affects menstrual cycles. However, if you have concerns about changes in your menstrual cycle after treatment, it’s important to discuss them with your healthcare provider.

How does RF affect the nerves?

The RF triggers nerve cells to secrete more vasoactive peptides, resulting in an uptick of neurotransmitter activity at the nerve synapse. However, it is still uncertain how this increased neurotransmission takes place exactly.

Can ThermiVa help treat scar tissue, hemorrhoids, or episiotomy scarring?

ThermiVa can be used to address bothersome episiotomy scars, hemorrhoids, and other scar tissue. The radiofrequency energy stimulates collagen production, which helps refine the texture and appearance of any existing scarring.

What is the cause of the white discharge some patients experience during internal treatment?

During the internal treatment process, it is not uncommon for white discharge to occur as a result of stimulation or arousal. In fact, this is usually seen as an indication that their atrophic vulvovaginitis response to such treatments will be positive.

Is it possible to combine the ThermiVa treatment with other vaginal treatments or procedures?

ThermiVa can be a great complement to many other vulvovaginal treatments. For instance, when performing labia minoraplasty, ThermiVa on the entire vulvar structures can result in more pleasing aesthetics and enhanced post-procedure skin softness, fullness, and smoothness.

Will I need anesthetic for the ThermiVa procedure?

No, unless you want them specifically. ThermiVa feels like a warm and comfortable heat.

How long does the ThermiVa procedure usually take?

For labia majora reduction, it takes about 10-15 minutes of treatment and 15-20 for vaginal tightening. To ensure optimal results, a series of 3 treatments one month apart is necessary.

Are there any contraindications for longer treatment periods?

No, it’s unknown if anything over five minutes is better.

When should I expect to schedule maintenance treatments? Is there any difference in expected results and maintenance between internal treatments and external ones?

Following the third treatment, maintenance sessions should start occurring at least every six months and can last up to a year. The outcomes of comfort, moisture regulation, fullness relief, incontinence control, and decreased overactive bladder symptoms are more enduring than any external treatments may provide.

What can I expect in terms of treatment and results if I suffer from prolapse?

For patients who suffer from pelvic prolapse, ThermiVa treatment is dedicated to the affected area. Specifically, if it is a bladder prolapse, then at least five minutes must be spent on the anterior compartment. For rectal prolapsing, five minutes should focus on the posterior compartment. If both compartments are involved in this condition, a total of ten minutes would be necessary.

How much is known about the long term effects of ThermiVa treatments?

Using RF technologies since 2009-2010, we have seen patients that had external vulvar and introital treatments be out for almost two years. In fact, some of our RF patients have followed up with us over a period of five years!

Can I go swimming or go in a hot tub after treatment?

After treatment, hot tubs and swimming are authorized. Nonetheless, if the patient experiences an uncommon spotting event during or after treatment, it is advised to wait for one or two days before participating in either activity.

How often can I schedule ThermiVa treatments?

For optimal results, it is suggested that ThermiVa treatments be performed every 30 days for a total of three times. To keep your positive gains, begin following up with maintenance appointments as necessary based on the outcomes you’re experiencing.

What results do most patients experience after the treatment?

Quickly after treatments, patients often describe feeling tighter and more comfortable. For example, in cases of incontinence, it is common to experience immediate relief from the condition post-treatment.

How soon after treatment can I resume my normal daily activities?

After the procedure is completed, patients can resume their customary everyday activities right away. There are no restrictions on physical or intimate activity either. Most people will start to detect results almost immediately after treatment, and some may notice changes within two weeks. Some individuals might experience mild cramps shortly afterward; however, these should fade away within 24 hours.

How soon after treatment can women resume sexual activity?

Women are free to go back to their daily lives and can start engaging in sexual activities the same day if no unusual bleeding is present.
