THERMIva™, invented by Dr. Red Alinsod, is an FDA approved in-office, non-surgical device used for dermatologic conditions such as loose and saggy skin, dry skin, and insensitive skin. A radio frequency generator, made by Thermi Aesthetics powers an “S” shaped hand piece that treats both external and internal vulvovaginal tissue via a thermistor tip which is able to control the amount of heat delivered.
The tip is smaller than most fingers and has a gentle curve that provides excellent comfort. THERMIva™ provides a non-surgical option for treating vaginal looseness and labial tissue laxity. This procedure consists of using radio-frequency heat to tighten the vaginal canal and/or the labia majora.
ThermiVa RF is FDA cleared for dermatological and general surgical procedures for electrocoagulation and hemostasis. ThermiVa has FDA Approval for Dermatologic Conditions, Surgery, Surgical Nerve Ablation. Examples of dermatologic conditions include loose skin, dry skin, thin skin, insensitive skin. ThermiVa has a CE Mark and EU Approved for Vulvovaginal Laxity or for treatment of loose tissues of the vulva and vagina.
ThermiVa does not have FDA or EU approval for incontinence or the leaky bladder or rectum, atrophy or vaginal dryness, prolapse or fallen bladder/rectum, or orgasmic dysfunction.
