ThermiVa Transcutaneous Temperature Controlled Radio Frequency therapy! TTCRF

Thermal modalities using radiofrequency have been used in aesthetics for some time. It has successfully provided rejuvenation or tightening of skin at the face, neck, chest and other body parts. Recent studies have shown its utility for vulvar and vaginal use as well.


Vaginal rejuvenation is the regeneration of vulvar and vaginal tissues causing increased blood flow, neocollagenesis, healing and tightening. The controlled heat applied, first contracts the collagen and increases blood flow leading to new collagen and elastin being formed as well as revascularization of the treated tissue. With RF the temperature used stimulates the healing cascade without causing unnecessary damage to the skin or integral tissue structures

The vaginal wall consists of dense connective tissue that is heavily vascularized and through which many nerves pass. It is lined by a slightly keratinized stratified squamous epithelium.

The vulva is skin-like and more heavily vascularized and innervated

WHAT IS ThermiVa?

ThermiVa is a revolutionary new, non-surgical, non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) treatment used to restore vaginal health, improve sexual health and provide tissue regeneration. The treatment tightens sagging tissue, rebuilds collagen and elastin and revascularizes. The procedure is safe effective and non-invasive.

How is it actually done?

The ThermiVa (RF) electrode about the size of half your index finger, passes current through the skin. Resistance creates heat, causing the therapeutic damage necessary for rejuvenation to take place. Denaturation and contraction of collagen, activation of fibroblasts and increased blood flow leads to neocollagenesis. The gentle, controlled heat actually remodels the vaginal mucous epithelium.

This is an office procedure which is safe, well tolerated and effective
