What is ThermiVA™?

With ThermiVA™, radiofrequency energy is sent to the desired area (internally or externally), heating the tissue and stimulating the body’s own collagen production. ThermiVA™, or Thermi, uses radio frequency to increase sensitivity in the lateral and posterior walls with full depth heating to about 45 degrees in a 30-60 minute procedure. This can be effective for some vaginal issues, but results may not be as permanent when compared to CO2 or radiofrequency with cryogen like the Viveve Geneveve technology. Radio frequency energy is different from fractional CO2 laser energy. Because the fractional CO2 laser technology has the ability to attain higher temperatures inside the mucosal lining, which is far more effective for triggering the fibroblasts that are essential for neocollagenesis, another treatment option, such as FemTouch™ or Femilift™, or the Geneveve by Viveve may achieve the results you seek or symptom resolution of the problems you are experiencing more efficiently.

How Does vConfidence Use ThermiVA™ for Treatment?

Radio frequency (RF) energy revolutionized certain forms of treatment for an earlier generation and still today, there are some patients who may prefer ThermiVA™. For certain treatments where the lower temperature of the RF energy is adequate to meet the treatment goals, ThermiVA™ may be recommended. But just as often, depending on your symptoms, newer technologies like vConfidence utilizing FemTouch™ Intima, Viveve Geneveve, or Femilift™ can provide a better treatment option to achieve longer lasting results for issues such as vaginal dryness, dyspareunia, laxity, stress urinary incontinence or urinary tract infections.

How Many Treatments Are Required?

Most treatments with ThermiVA™ can be achieved in three short sessions that 30-60 minutes each. ThermiVa™ is performed in those three treatments evenly spaced out over the course of three months.  The vConfidence Geneveve procedure in contrast takes only 5 minutes.

How Does vConfidence ThermiVA™ Treatment Feel?

Your vConfidence ThermiVA™ treatment will be pain-free. Most patients describe the sensation of the treatment as just warmth, but unlike the FemTouch™ or Femilift™ procedure, the Thermi probe is moved more frequently inside the vaginal canal so as to not overheat any specific area.
