ThermiVa

ThermiVa for women is a new non-surgical procedure for labial and vaginal tightening. It is comfortable and easy, and performed without any anesthesia or incisions. For the first time, we have a highly effective and relatively simple non-surgical treatment for the management of many vulvovaginal issues. At the Groot DermaSurgery Centre in Edmonton, Dr. Linda Smith is excited to offer this new treatment to women suffering from a variety of vulvovaginal issues, including vaginal laxity, vulvar laxity, and stress incontinence.

Women wanting to improve their quality of life through our ThermiVa treatments will undergo a confidential personal consultation with Dr. Smith where she will gladly answer your questions. Dr. Smith will also perform an examination to ensure you will benefit from the treatments.

I have to honestly say ThermiVa really works. I’m still in awe of the results. — S.R.

How does ThermiVa work?

ThermiVa treatments use radiofrequency (RF) energy to gently heat tissue and rejuvenate collagen with minimal discomfort or downtime. Using this RF energy, Dr. Smith is able to tighten external and internal vulvovaginal tissue via a temperature-controlled tip.

What does ThermiVa Treat?

  • Vaginal laxity: ThermiVa tightens the vagina at the opening and the full length of the vagina
  • Vulvar laxity: ThermiVa tightens the labial tissues and reduces sagging. It often results in softer and smoother skin that is very noticeable
  • Vaginal Dryness: ThermiVa can add softer and thicker skin and more moisture both internally and externally to make daily life and sexual intercourse more comfortable
  • Stress incontinence: ThermiVa can reduce leakage and may reduce urge symptoms
  • Orgasmic dysfunction: ThermiVa may give you increased sensitivity, as well as more coordinated and stronger muscular contractions

*Please note that individual results and experience may vary but these are many of the benefits patients have noticed.

Dr. Red Alinsod, the Medical Director for Women’s Health for Thermi Aesthetics, came up with the following graphic explaining some of the benefits:

vaginal rejuvenation

Vaginal Rejuvenation with ThermiVa is not just an aesthetic procedure – it is a functional procedure. After vaginal birth of their children or due to normal aging, many women will notice some loosening of the vagina. Frequently the vaginal muscles will become “stretched” and women may experience a reduced sensation of intimacy and/or orgasmic dysfunction. As well, stress urinary incontinence, such as involuntary loss of urine when laughing, sneezing, coughing, and/or exercising becomes a concern as they lose muscle tone, strength, and control.

The changes I have seen after two treatments have been amazing. Not only did my stress incontinence improve but the other side benefits have been incredible — J.S.

ThermiVa on “The Doctors”

Although relatively new to Canada, ThermiVa is already being used by many gynecologists and urogynecologists in the United States. ThermiVa was featured on “The Doctors” TV Show. On the show, Dr. Jennifer Berman received the treatment and tells about her experiences.
