Feminine rejuvenation is an important part of a woman’s health, confidence, and enjoyment of life. Many women struggle to achieve sexual satisfaction due to looseness of the vagina caused by aging and childbirth. ThermiVa® is a safe, non-surgical treatment that can tighten the external and internal tissues of the vulva and vagina to improve sensation and sexual pleasure.

Who Can Benefit?

Aging Women

Over time, the soft tissues of the body begin to sag and lose their tight, firm consistency. The vagina is affected by this, and many middle-aged and older women struggle to enjoy sexual intercourse as much as they did when they were younger. Vaginal dryness is another common ailment among aging women. ThermiVa® tightens and stimulates the tissues of the vagina to improve contraction and correct dryness, allowing women to reclaim their youthful, sensual pleasure.


Delivering a baby through the birth canal can significantly affect the quality of the soft, delicate tissues. The intense labor of childbirth can permanently stretch out the vaginal canal, having an effect that is compounded for women who have delivered multiple children. ThermiVa® tightens the vagina to rejuvenate its appearance and reverse the stretching that occurred due to childbirth. It is an excellent treatment for women who wish to reclaim their pre-baby bodies.

Lax Skin

Skin laxity occurs when natural collagen and elastin levels decrease. The skin becomes less taut, resulting in tissue sagging and general looseness. In women, this can lead to loose, sagging vaginal tissues just as easily as it can lead to sagging jowls. Female rejuvenation with ThermiVa® triggers new collagen formation to tighten the vaginal tissues and stimulate sensation. It also rejuvenates the appearance of the external genitalia.

Low Sexual Pleasure

Women with excessively relaxed vaginal tissues may experience decreased sexual pleasure as a result. A diminution in sexual satisfaction can ultimately lead to a diminished desire to engage in sexual activity, which can affect your romantic relationship and quality of life. ThermiVa® non-surgically tightens and rejuvenates the vaginal tissues to increase sensation and restore sexual satisfaction.

Urinary Stress Incontinence

The effects of ThermiVa® are not limited solely to the vagina. By stimulating collagen production and tightening the external and internal tissues of the vagina, ThermiVa® may help to improve urinary stress incontinence. Tighter tissues can help women have greater control and minimize unwelcome leakage.

The ThermiVa® Treatment Experience

ThermiVa® is a short, in-office treatment that is only approximately 15 to 30 minutes long. It uses a temperature-controlled radiofrequency device to tighten both the vaginal and labial tissues. A tiny handpiece is inserted into the vaginal canal or held to the external vulvar tissues and transmits controlled energy wavelengths. Through gentle heating, the tissues naturally contract and new collagen begins to form. The energy stimulation helps rebuild elastic tissue and increase blood vessels to the area. Afterward, patients can return to their normal daily activities.

Addressing Your Concerns

ThermiVa® treatments have no downtime. Women can immediately return to normal activities and have sexual intercourse after their treatment session.

There are no incisions or stitches made for ThermiVa® treatments. This is a completely non-surgical procedure, so patients will not have any scarring.

The cost of ThermiVa® can vary and will ultimately be determined by the number of treatments you need. Most patients achieve their complete results after three ThermiVa® treatments. Dr. Boyd can provide you with an estimate during your initial consultation.

ThermiVa® treatments are said to feel comfortable, like a warm massage. No anesthesia is needed, and patients feel no pain or discomfort during or after their treatment session.

Frequently Asked Questions

ThermiVa® is safe and sanitary. The handpiece is a one-time-use device, which ensures no risk of transmitting infections. As a non-surgical treatment, patients do not have to be concerned about any surgical incisions causing damage to the nerves or sensitive tissues.
