Non-surgical Vulvovaginal Rejuvenation

Childbirth and the natural aging process cause changes, which may affect feminine wellness. A particularly strenuous vaginal childbirth, or multiple births, can cause stretching of the vagina. The effects of menopause can also cause physical and functional changes, such as excessive dryness. Both conditions can rob women (and their partners) of their sense of well-being and happiness.

ThermiVa is a non-surgical vaginal tightening treatment for women who want to reclaim what childbirth or aging may have taken away. Radiofrequency energy is used to gently heat tissue so that women can reclaim, restore, and revive feminine wellness without discomfort or downtime. The ThermiVa electrode is designed to treat the internal vaginal walls, external vulva (labia majora and labia minora) heating the tissue and stimulating the body’s own collagen production. ThermiVa is performed in three treatments over the course of three months. Yearly follow-up single treatments are recommended.

THERMIva Testimonials

I am more than happy to share my experience with this treatment. As a 56 year old woman who went through menopause incredibly early (10 years ago at age 46), it wasn’t long before I began experiencing the frequently talked about symptoms of vaginal dryness and painful sexual intercourse. I tried hormone replacement therapy until I was 52 when a medical scare required me to stop taking them. I resorted to using over the counter vaginal moisturizers and lubricants but still had discomfort at times even with these measures.

When I saw the advertisement for ThermVa I quickly started doing some research. There are numerous testimonials on YouTube and many of the women touted the benefits of lubrication and laxticity. I also have experienced bladder leakage when I would sneeze or cough, so hearing of that potential benefit solidified my desire to have the procedure.

After my first treatment I noticed a little difference in my moisture level at first, but really noticed the difference in any kind of leakage. It was just gone, even with repeated sneezing and coughing fits as allergy season progressed.

A month later I had my second treatment. It was this one where I noticed much less need for lubrication and even after a couple of encounters with my husband, I asked if he could tell a difference. His response, “Oh yes, it feels like velvet.” That was validation enough!

I just experienced my third and final treatment of the series. I look forward to continued improvement and am completely sold on the procedure. I look forward to seeing what the future holds!

Thank you again, Dr. Friehling. I will certainly be back (for other treatments too perhaps!!!)
