ThermiVA: Vaginal Tightening Without Surgery

For more information about ThermiVa and how it can revitalize your vaginal and sexual health, schedule a visit at Premier Hea

Multiple pregnancies, hormonal imbalances associated with menopause, decreased circulation, and other conditions affecting your vaginal health can also impact your sexual health. In the past, women were expected to live with these issues as a natural part of aging.  

Fortunately, at Premier Health & Wellness in Lithonia, Georgia, we offer a better solution — ThermiVa® treatment therapy for vaginal revitalization.

Dominique J. Smith, MD, FACOG, leads the team and appreciates the effective treatments that ThermiVa delivers. She often recommends the treatments as a nonsurgical option for restoring vaginal health and improving sexual health.

How does aging affect vaginal and sexual health?

Tissue changes associated with menopause and declining estrogen levels cause vaginal dryness and loss of normal lubrication during sexual intercourse. This can lead to cracking and itching of the tissue lining the vaginal canal as well as bleeding and discomfort during intimacy.

Hormonal changes and multiple pregnancies, or even one difficult vaginal birth, can cause vaginal walls to stretch and become thinner. As the vaginal tissue loosens, the skin folds that surround the vaginal opening (labia minora) and enclose the external genitalia (labia majora) can also sag and droop.

Along with the noticeable aesthetic changes that may decrease your confidence, vaginal changes can interfere with wearing certain clothing and increase your risk of skin infections. Changes associated with aging vaginal tissue can also cause mild to moderate urine leakage (incontinence).    

How does ThermiVa help revitalize vaginal tissue?

The ThermiVa system uses physician-controlled radiofrequency energy to gently heat and tighten vaginal tissue. Designed with your safety and comfort in mind, the energy is delivered via a handpiece that is shaped to fit the contours of your internal and external genitalia.

The heat generated by ThermiVa tightens the targeted skin and prompts natural collagen production. Collagen is a protein your body produces and uses to rebuild healthy tissue. In some cases, ThermiVa treatments may also help control mild to moderate urinary incontinence.

The skin tightening effects of ThermiVa are immediately apparent. You can also expect continued improvement for several weeks after a session as increased levels of collagen continue to revitalize vaginal tissues.

Depending on your circumstances, you may choose to treat the vaginal canal, the labia, or both during a ThermiVa session. Dr. Smith discusses your options in detail before scheduling your treatment.

How long does recovery take after a ThermiVa session?

There is no downtime following a ThermiVa session. The treatments are painless and completed here at Premier Health & Wellness with your convenience in mind. Each session takes only 30 minutes to complete. You can return to your normal daily routine immediately after leaving the office.
