ThermiVA™ is a non-surgical vaginal tightening treatment utilizing radiofrequency.
What is ThermiVA™?
ThermiVA™ sends radio frequency energy into tissues, both external and internal, that need treatment. ThermiVA™, which is also known as Thermi treatments, stimulates collagen production by heating up the lateral and posterior walls of the vagina to around 45 degrees. The treatment only lasts for around 30 to 60 minutes.
Results from the ThermiVA™ technology may not last for as long as results from other methods. This is because the radio frequency energy procedure differs from the more advanced fractional CO2 laser energy and radio frequency with cryogen technologies. These newer procedures heat up the vagina’s mucous membranes to warmer temperatures. This encourages more effective neocollagenesis due to more heat stimulating the fibroblasts. Geneveve by Viveve, Femilift™, and FemTouch™ all use these treatment methods, so they may relieve your symptoms more effectively and efficiently.
How Does vConfidence Use ThermiVA™ for Treatment?
The radio frequency (RF) energy procedure was a groundbreaking treatment when it first appeared on the market, and there are still some people who seek this kind of treatment today. The professionals at vConfidence in Austin recommend the ThermiVA™ procedure for patients who only need the cooler temperatures caused by RF energy for effective treatments.
On the other hand, vConfidence doctors recommend newer methods for more severe symptoms caused by urinary tract infections, vaginal dryness, laxity, stress urinary incontinence, and dyspareunia. The results from vConfidence technologies such as Intima, FemTouch™, Viveve Geneveve, and Femilift™ tend to be more long lasting.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
The ThermiVA™ procedure usually only requires three quick sessions that last between 30 and 60 minutes each. These three ThermiVA™ treatments occur once a month.
Newer treatment technologies from vConfidence are faster than ThermiVA™. The Geneveve procedure, for example, only lasts for five minutes.

They will also let you know if you can achieve better results with the fractional CO2 laser technologies that are used by Femilift™ and FemTouch™.
How Does The vConfidence ThermiVA™ Treatment Feel?
You will not feel any pain during your ThermiVA™ procedures. Most people who receive this treatment feel only a warm sensation from the RF energy that the Thermi probe releases. Your vConfidence Certified Doctor in Austin, TX, will move the probe around your vaginal canal to avoid overheating any tissue in one particular area. These motions are not necessary during the Femilift™ and FemTouch™ procedures.
