ThermiVa Q & A

What is vaginal laxity?

Vaginal laxity is a lack of vaginal tightness and tone. The condition usually occurs as a result of childbirth, but the aging process also leads to changes in your vaginal walls.

A satisfying sex life is an important part of overall health and wellness. Women with vaginal laxity often find sex less gratifying, and sometimes notice a decrease in sex drive as a result.

Not so long ago, vaginal laxity was simply an unavoidable part of the aging process. Today, women have options in treating this condition.  

What is ThermiVa?

ThermiVa is a treatment for vaginal laxity that uses radiofrequency energy to prompt cellular changes in your vaginal tissue. The process is quick and painless and offers the chance to regain control over vaginal function.

More than 100,000 ThermiVa treatments have been performed around the globe, and that number grows every day. Women choose ThermiVa because of its demonstrated safety record, no need for anesthesia, no hormones, and no downtime.   

ThermiVa is a great treatment choice for women who struggle with vaginal changes. However, if you’re pregnant or have a fever or skin infection near the treatment area, this approach may not be right for you. Your specialist recommends treatment scheduling options or alternative options.

How does ThermiVa work?

Once you’re comfortable, your doctor gently positions the treatment handpiece into your vagina. The treatment wand is around a half an inch wide and is shaped to comfortably align with a woman’s anatomy.

A small portion of the treatment handpiece delivers the radiofrequency energy, which penetrates into the deeper layers of your vaginal walls. That energy creates enough heat to prompt your natural healing response, but not enough heat to damage nearby tissue types.

Your body responds by creating new collagen, thickening your vaginal walls as well as shrinking and tightening targeted tissues.

Treatments take between 20-40 minutes, with a common schedule of three treatments spaced four weeks apart. A maintenance treatment every 6-12 months ensures your results last.

What other issues does ThermiVa address?

Vaginal laxity isn’t the only medical issue that ThermiVa treatments improve. ThermiVa has also proven effective in treating the following:

  • Overactive bladder
  • Mild urinary stress incontinence
  • Mild rectal incontinence

Treatments can also tighten and shrink both labia majora and labia minora. For women who feel self-conscious about the size or shape of their labia, these treatments can make a world of difference.

ThermiVa also has the power to heighten nerve sensitivity and strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, which translates into stronger orgasms with a lower stimulation threshold. That can dramatically improve your sexual gratification, which translates to a happier and healthier life.
