ThermiVa and Viveve

What is Intimate Female Rejuvenation?

Intimate female rejuvenation is a non-surgical treatment that can help to reduce symptoms of vaginal laxity. It stimulates collagen formation to strengthen the vaginal tissue and muscles thus thickening the vaginal canal.

What Are the Benefits of Intimate Female Rejuvenation?

  • Non-surgical
  • Completely comfortable
  • No downtime or recovery needed
  • One treatment produces optimum results
  • Reduces uncomfortable symptoms related to vaginal laxity

What are ThermiVa and Viveve RF Treatments?


RF technology uses electrical energy to tighten vaginal muscles and stimulate new collagen growth to improve overall your vaginal health. The technology gently delivers radiofrequency energy, which heats the tissues and stimulate a healing process. The energy also triggers your body’s own collagen production.

By addressing the root cause of vaginal issues that interfere with your vaginal health, self-esteem, and sexual intimacy, RF can provide long-lasting results.

When should I consider RF treatments?

As you get older, your body’s production of collagen slows down. This important building block of healthy tissue is what keeps your skin looking young and firm. Without sufficient collagen, vaginal tissue can thin out, causing issues that affect your health, self-confidence, and sexual function.

If you’re looking to rejuvenate your vagina without surgery, RF can be an ideal choice for treatment. You may want to consider ThermiVa or Viveve treatments to address conditions like:

  • Atrophy
  • Dryness
  • Loose skin
  • Weak muscles
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Sexual dissatisfaction

ThermiVa is an effective treatment option for tightening vaginal tissues after childbirth, menopause, or due to age-related collagen loss. The technology can not only address vaginal health issues, it can also improve the overall appearance of your vagina and labia.

Your Turner Medical Arts provider can determine if ThermiVa is right for you after performing a physical exam and discussing your expectations for treatment. They create a customized treatment plan to target the areas that leave you dissatisfied or cause you discomfort.

How long do the results of ThermiVa and Viveve last?

While the muscle tightening benefits may be noticeable soon after treatment, it takes time for your body to produce new collagen to firm up vaginal tissues.

Within four weeks of treatment, you can experience the benefits of your radiofrequency treatment. Continued improvement will occur over the next few months. Many women notice a significant improvement in the appearance of their vaginal structures and an increase in natural lubrication. By tightening your labia and the outer tissues of your vagina, it may also be possible for you to wear tighter-fitting clothes and bikinis without embarrassment.

To help you maintain results, especially as you age, your Turner Medical Arts provider may suggest additional treatments with ThermiVa or Viveve.

What is the difference between Thermiva and Viveve?

Turner Medical Arts have been using Thermiva RF treatments very successfully and safely for scores of patients for over three years and continue to do so.

Viveve is a new generation of RF treatment utilizing a cooling element on the vaginal probe to comfortable allow electrical energy deeper into the tissue with enhanced benefits. This technology is indicated in more than 45 countries including Canada and the UK for vaginal tightening and improved sexual function. Turner Medical Arts acquired the Viveve technology in 2018. A single treatment is utilized with Viveve as opposed to a series of three treatments usually recommended with Thermiva.
