Most women experience increased looseness of their labia and vaginal muscles after childbirth or as a natural byproduct of aging. While not uncommon, this laxity can diminish sensation during intercourse, reduce sexual satisfaction, and cause embarrassing urinary incontinence. The goal of ThermiVa™ treatments is to help women reclaim their body and restore satisfaction.
Women of any age are eligible. The following conditions exclude a candidate from ThermiVa™:
Patients who have had breast cancer may not be good candidates for the procedure. Patients should have a negative pap smear within the last two years. Women considering treatment for vaginal symptoms should speak to their doctor first about the potential and known benefits and risks of all available treatment options. Many vaginal symptoms can be resolved with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), which FVPS also offers.View All Videos
ThermiVa™ treatments apply heat to targeted tissue, which promotes collagen remodeling to strengthen and tighten skin. The controlled thermal energy can be delivered to the external areas to alter the shape of the labia. During the procedure, a highly trained staff member uses the gently curved ThermiVa™ hand piece to contract tissue, and monitors tissue temperature with a minimally invasive probe.
The treatment probe tip is passed back and forth slowly and with wide sweeps over the desired zone of treatment for several minutes, gradually heating the tissue to the therapeutically desired level to induce tightening and collagen building. Internal changes may take place in addition to the rejuvenated appearance of the labia.
During the treatment, the area will feel warm, but still comfortable. There will be some mild swelling and/or temporary redness. There may be slight cramping when treated internally, which will resolve itself within a day. Patients will be able to resume all normal activity, including sexual intercourse, immediately after each treatment. No anesthetics are used for the procedure.
The tightening result is visible immediately after the first treatment with additional effects over time. The most pronounced improvement is noticeable about 10 days after the first treatment, while the full outcome takes a few months to fully manifest, regardless of the number of sessions.

The complete ThermiVa™ procedure includes three separate treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. While one or two sessions may be satisfactory, a second or third session still offers some benefits, and is necessary to see achieve the maximum changes.
Chemotherapy and radiation treatments can make the skin very dry, thin and vulnerable due to the rapid dying of cell tissue. During and up to one year after completing all oncology medical treatments, only gentle hydrating and restorative treatments can be performed on the skin surface. This would disqualify almost all the services of the Renaissance Medispa and the Laser Institute of Wisconsin™. If you have concerns, please address them with your medical provider. It is always best to err on the side of caution in treating compromised skin.
By conservative estimates, external labial correction may start to revert after 6 months. Internal changes start reverting after 9-12 months. Most patients have longer lasting results. Maintenance ThermiVa™ treatments are recommended annually to maintain the results because aging and gravity are constantly working against the anatomy.
