5 Benefits of the ThermiVa Treatment That Will Surprise You

Let’s talk about it, ladies. You know what we’re talking about – it’s that subject we keep to ourselves and sometimes only talk to our gynecologist about.  We’re talking about your feminine wellness and the many issues women face after childbirth, menopause, or just over time as our more intimate areas start to change. Let’s have a serious discussion about your feminine health and the options available to you with the ThermiVa® Treatment of vaginal rejuvenation.

One of the most important health and beauty trends of the past few years is the use of radiofrequency energy in cosmetic procedures. The use of radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten skin has unlocked a number of exciting, non-surgical possibilities, including a number of neck and face procedures that we offer here at CPS.

For the purpose of today’s blog, however, we want to look at the benefits of radiofrequency in cosmetic procedures as it pertains to vaginal rejuvenation—something many women express an interest in but very few discuss. Does it actually work—and if so, how? What exactly does it do? These are some of the questions we’ll be getting into in this post.

ThermiVa: The Newest Treatment Using Radio Frequency in Cosmetic Procedures

First, a quick note: When we talk about the use of radio frequency in cosmetic vaginal rejuvenation procedures, we’re primarily talking about a device called ThermiVa, which we are proud to offer here at Charlotte Plastic Surgery.

What is it, exactly? The simplest explanation is that it’s a small wand that’s inserted into the vagina where it emanates radiofrequency energy—leading to new collagen & elastin production. The effects can be many, including tightening, an increase in sensation, reduced urinary stress incontinence and much more. Many of our patients who have this procedure done tell us that it helps them reclaim their feminine wellness and feel a sense confidence they thought was lost to children, aging, and time.

Some additional facts you might want to know about the ThermiVa treatment: It’s been around for several years, is FDA-approved, and is used in hundreds of cosmetic surgery practices across the country. Not only is it safe, but it’s also painless, gentle, convenient, and scientifically proven to work. It’s also something that we offer here in our office with no downtime and no recovery time needed; you can have non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation done on your lunch hour and be cleared for regular activities (even sexual intercourse) by evening time.

What’s more, it comes with a number of benefits that might really appeal to you—and they might also surprise you. That’s what we’ll take a look at next.

Surprising Benefits of the ThermiVa Treatment

Clients come to us all the time asking how something like ThermiVa can make their lives better—and here are just a few of the positive effects we like to tell them about.

Bladder Leakage

Though it’s not something many women like to talk about, the loss of bladder control is a very real problem—and many women find that the problem worsens after they have children and as they get older. It can be an embarrassing and even worrisome issue, but the use of radio frequency—as with the ThermiVa treatment—can help patient to regain some control.

If you struggle with leaking while running, jogging, or exercising, or if you fear that something as simple as a laugh or a sneeze could result in bladder leakage, we’d encourage you to learn more about ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation, which could be just the solution you’ve been seeking. Not only does vaginal rejuvenation help you regain bladder control, but it can also help you return to your active lifestyle.


Another area that women often don’t like to talk about but many express concern about is laxity—or looseness, in layman’s terms. This, too, is an issue that can worsen with age, but ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation can offer a solution.

Essentially, the increase in collagen production has a tightening effect, specifically in the inner vaginal canal. Many of our clients express pleasant surprise at how great a difference ThermiVa treatments can make, and as such, we recommend it to anyone who’s looked for an effective vaginal tightening option.


A lot of the time, when we talk about radiofrequency in cosmetic procedures, we’re talking about ways to improve one’s physical appearance—and that’s very much the case here. Simply put, women who would like to alter the look of their intimate areas may find that ThermiVa provides just the option they need.

Again, the key here is the collagen production, which has a tightening effect on the labia minora and outer vaginal tissues. We love to hear our clients tell us that vaginal rejuvenation has helped them to both feel and look more youthful without the need for surgery. Feel free to ask us more about what you can expect in this regard.


Still another common problem that many women express is loss of moisture—and here again, ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation can be a meaningful solution.  As women experience menopausal and peri-menopausal symptoms, loss of lubricating vaginal fluids can become an issue some just accept as an effect of time and general aging.  However, women are learning that it doesn’t have to be that way.

The important thing to understand is that the radiofrequency energy actually increases blood flow to the vaginal tissues, which aides in lubrication. And the positive effects can be numerous, including less painful intercourse and just general improvement to vaginal health.

For women seeking a long-term solution for their decreased vaginal moisture, this is a procedure that’s well worth looking into.


We mentioned in the last section that vaginal rejuvenation can have a lubricating effect, leading to less pain during intercourse—but actually, we could go a step further and say that something like ThermiVa can increase sexual pleasure more broadly.

That is, it can improve vaginal sensation—increasing small nerve fiber density and enhancing a woman’s ability to achieve orgasm.

For many of our clients, this is the most surprising of all ThermiVa’s benefits, but also one of the most appealing: With vaginal rejuvenation, you can actually enjoy greater pleasure during sex.

Is ThermiVa Right for You?

As with any of our procedures, it’s important to understand that different women have different needs—and we’re not offering a blanket recommendation for vaginal rejuvenation. It’s true that the use of radio frequency in cosmetic dermatology is promising, and while the ThermiVa treatment, in particular, is a proven and effective treatment, it’s always important to meet with a doctor before you pursue a specific treatment.

When you come in for a consultation at Charlotte Plastic Surgery, we’ll have the opportunity to talk with you about your needs and goals, and to help you identify the treatment options that make the most sense for you. And if that happens to be vaginal rejuvenation, we can walk you through some of the specifics of this treatment.
