ThermiVA™ is a non-surgical vaginal tightening treatment utilizing radiofrequency.
What Is ThermiVA™?
ThermiVA™, or Thermi, stimulates collagen growth through the internal or external use of concentrated radio frequency, or RF, energy to heat the tissue. The radio frequency increases posterior and lateral wall sensitivity via non-ablative, painless heating to a depth of 45 degrees. In total, the procedure takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, and it is effective at treating some of the most common vaginal issues.
When compared to Viveve from Geneveve, Femilift™, FemTouch™ and other procedures that utilize fractional CO2 technology or cryogen-cooled monopolar RF, the results from ThermiVA™ may not last as long. Fractional CO2 technology can reach higher temperatures while inside of the mucosal lining, making it more efficient at provoking fibroblasts, which produce collagen.
How Does vConfidence Use ThermiVA™ for Treatment?
Although radio frequency technology is older than other feminine health technology, many patients still choose ThermiVA™. When the RF energy’s lower temperature is needed to treat certain conditions successfully, ThermiVA™ is a recommended choice. However, later technologies like Intima, Femilift™, Viveve from Geneveve and FemTouch™ from vConfidence offer effective, long-lasting results for laxity, urinary tract infections, stress urinary incontinence, dyspareunia, and vaginal dryness.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
Usually, vConfidence Certified Doctors in Glendale, Arizona and Surprise, Arizona deliver ThermiVA over three monthly treatment sessions, which last 30 minutes to 60 minutes per session. However, the vConfidence Geneveve treatment lasts only five minutes.

How Does vConfidence ThermiVA™ Treatment Feel?
There is no pain associated with the vConfidence ThermiVA™ procedure. Patients in Glendale and Surprise, AZ, usually describe the sensation they feel during treatment as warm. However, the Thermi probe must be moved more often as opposed to during FemiLift™ and FemTouch™ in order to prevent overheating the area of treatment.
