Many women experience age- or childbirth-related vaginal changes that cause them physical and emotional discomfort. ThermiVa® vaginal rejuvenation treatments at our Tifton med spa can help women from Albany, Valdosta, Moultrie, and Douglas, GA, restore their confidence and comfort without surgery.
What Is ThermiVa?
ThermiVa is a painless, nonsurgical, no-downtime vaginal rejuvenation procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to gently heat tissue and stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a protein that is essential for skin that’s elastic and firm. Our bodies produce less and less collagen as we age, and childbirth stretches the tissue as well, resulting in tissue laxity. During a ThermiVa procedure, the targeted energy selectively treats vaginal tissue to tighten and restore sensation to the area. No needles or anesthesia is needed, and patients can return immediately to their normal activities, including sexual intimacy.
Women can benefit from ThermiVa treatments if they have:
- A feeling of vaginal “looseness” or laxity
- Difficulty achieving orgasm
- Vaginal dryness, even during sex
- Urinary incontinence or leaking
These physical symptoms are often associated with intimacy issues, reduced quality of life, and loss of confidence. Our team of aesthetic specialists at Solé Medical Spa understands that these things aren’t always easy to discuss; we are extremely sensitive to each patient’s feelings.

What Happens During a ThermiVa Treatment?
The temperature-controlled system used during a ThermiVa treatment ensures the safety of the procedure. We use a female licensed Nurse Practitioner to perform the treatments. The RF energy is delivered to the tissues through an applicator shaped like a wand, which your provider inserts into the vagina, and optionally applies to the vulva and labia. The vaginal portion of the treatment achieves the listed benefits. The vulvar portion of the treatment is purely cosmetic and has become very popular. Each treatment is customized based on the patient’s goals. The energy pulses create a tingling or warm feeling that patients describe as painless.
Treatment sessions that include both the labia majora and vaginal areas usually take only about 30 minutes. You can schedule a treatment in the morning and carry on with the rest of your day as you normally would.
A Reputation Built on Results
What Happens After a ThermiVa Treatment?
One of the main benefits of ThermiVa is that there is no downtime following the procedure. This is what sets ThermiVa apart from other nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments that use laser energy. Those procedures usually involve more discomfort, and patients need to avoid sexual intimacy for up to a week after the treatment.
ThermiVa produces immediate results, but patients usually need 3 treatments over the course of 3 months for optimal results. New collagen will develop gradually with each treatment. Results last about 8 to 12 months and may last longer with supplemental intravaginal estrogen therapy.
Will ThermiVa actually tighten the vagina?
Yes, vaginal tightening is one of the most significant benefits of ThermiVa. It does not actually remove lax skin or tighten vaginal muscles, so results are not as dramatic as surgical vaginoplasty.
Are there any side effects of the treatment?
ThermiVa does not harm the surface of the skin; it heats the underlying subdermal layer. It has built-in temperature control, so the risk of burns is extremely low. Treatments are so gentle that no downtime is needed.
Is ThermiVa approved by the FDA?
ThermiVa is FDA cleared in the U.S. for use in general gynecologic procedures such as treating abnormal or precancerous cervical or vaginal tissue and genital warts. Its use for vaginal rejuvenation is considered off-label.
Is ThermiVa better than FemiLift?
FemiLift is another nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment. Reasons patients prefer ThermiVa over FemiLift include:
- FemiLift uses fractional C02 laser energy to make tiny micro-injuries in the vaginal wall that can cause discomfort during and after treatment. ThermiVa treatments do not involve pain.
- FemiLift cannot be used to rejuvenate the labia, while ThermiVa can.
Does vaginal rejuvenation really help with urine leakage issues?
Because it tightens the full thickness of the vaginal wall, ThermiVa has been shown to reduce urine leakage related to both stress incontinence and urge incontinence.
