ABOUT ThermiVa™

ThermiVa™ is a safe and effective treatment for vaginal tightening and vaginal rejuvenation offered by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Deborah K. Ekstrom, serving patients at Salisbury Plastic Surgery in Worcester and nearby areas of Massachusetts.

Benefits of ThermiVa™ Treatments

ThermiVa™ treatments have been shown to help with a variety of cosmetic and medical issues women face when it comes to their vaginal appearance and health. These benefits include:
  • Vaginal tightening in the opening and length of the vagina for sexual improvement
  • Vulva and labia tightening to reduce sagging appearances
  • Increased sensitivity of vaginal tissue for higher sexual satisfaction
  • Thickening and softening of skin in and around the vagina for relief of dryness and increased moisture
  • Relief of incontinence in mild to moderate cases, along with Kegel exercises, for less urine leakage and a reduction in the urge to urinate frequently

How Does ThermiVa™ Work?

ThermiVa™ most typically requires three treatment sessions which last no longer than half an hour each, often taking only ten to fifteen minutes. Radiofrequency is focused on the vaginal area to gently heat the tissue resulting in tightening and softening of the skin. The collagen is stimulated for the long-term build up, and tightening results are typically seen immediately.

Who Can Benefit from ThermiVa™ Treatments?

A wide variety of patients can benefit from the vaginal rejuvenation provided by ThermiVa™, including:
  • Women who experience vaginal laxity due to one or more vaginal births
  • Women with mild to moderate urinary incontinence issues or accidents
  • Women unhappy with sagging in the vulva and labia areas due to aging or obesity
  • Menopausal women experiencing uncomfortable changes in moisture levels
  • Women with chronic dryness of the vagina
  • Women who have difficulty reaching orgasm and experience sexual dysfunction

Are There Any Adverse Side Effects associated with ThermiVa™?
