There are a number of events in a woman’s life that can affect vaginal wellness. Strenuous or multiple childbirths can create noticeable vaginal laxity, which can result in decreased sexual sensation for both the patient and their partner. The changing of hormones that comes with age, especially during menopause, can create vaginal dryness that can make intercourse painful. In addition to sensation issues, vaginal laxity and pelvic floor weakness can lead to urinary leakage (stress incontinence). ThermiVa® is a safe, non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation treatment that can restore your vaginal wellness without surgery.
What Is ThermiVa®?
ThermiVa® is a radiofrequency-based vaginal rejuvenation treatment. Using a temperature-controlled probe we are able to deliver a precise level of heat to the inner and outer portions of the vulvovaginal tissue in order to stimulate collagen production which will tighten and firm the area. This will result in increased sexual satisfaction for both partners, improved vaginal lubrication, and reduced urinary leakage.
Where Can ThermiVa® Treat?
ThermiVa® can also be used to help restore the outer appearance of your vaginal area, making it look and feel more youthful for greater sensation and less incontinence without a surgical procedure like a labiaplasty.
How It Works
The treatment is performed in a private room by one of Dr. Brezel’s female medical assistants who will gently introduce a smooth, S-shaped, curved probe into the vaginal canal. Your feet will be in stirrups on an examination table just as in the gynecologist’s office. The probe is lubricated with a warm gel for your comfort. This probe, once inserted, delivers a precise level of radiofrequency-generated heat to warm the tissue of the vagina and spur collagen production.
What Makes ThermiVa® One of the Best Skin Tightening Procedures?
ThermiVa® is a wonderful way to firm and tighten vaginal tissues as it requires no anesthesia, is minimally invasive, and is very well-tolerated. This process can produce great results in a brief 45-minute session that requires no recovery time. Patients will find it highly preferable to a labiaplasty or vaginoplasty.

Who Is a Candidate for This Treatment?
Most women who have experienced vaginal laxity or pelvic weakening due to childbirth, hormones, or trauma can benefit from this treatment. At your examination, we will make sure that you are a good candidate before proceeding.
Does the Treatment Hurt? What Is the Recovery Time?
The treatment is not painful or uncomfortable. In fact, many simply feel a comfortable warmth. The handheld probe is single-use only, which means you can be confident that there is no risk of infection or transmission of disease from one patient to the next. Since this procedure has no surgical component, no anesthesia is required, and there is no downtime. After the treatment has been completed patients can resume their normal activities including having sexual intercourse.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Many patients notice some improvement, with less laxity and more sensation, with just one treatment, but we recommend that patients complete a series of three monthly treatments for maximal benefit. Additional maintenance treatments can be done once or twice a year if so desired.
What Does ThermiVa® Cost?
The cost of your ThermiVa® treatment will vary from patient to patient. We can give you a more complete estimate after your consultation with Dr. Brezel.
