Explore How ThermiVa® Can Restore Your Sexual Health

There are many factors that can change your vagina over time. Giving birth, aging, and even menopause can lead to differences in how your vagina looks and feels, affecting your body image and sexual confidence. You can also experience problems like dryness and irritation, and this can interfere with an enjoyable sex life. 

If you spend a lot of time wishing you (and your vagina) felt younger, you might wonder if there's any way you can turn back the effects of time. Well, there is. Studies show that women who opt for vaginal rejuvenation report greater happiness with their personal aesthetic and their sexual experiences.

In Columbia, Missouri, Dr. Bonnie S. Friehling provides non-surgical treatments for women struggling with vaginal laxity. These options include ThermiVa® radiofrequency therapy, a painless procedure that restores elasticity and sensitivity to your vagina.

How ThermiVa works

ThermiVa is a radiofrequency (RF) treatment, which means it uses RF waves to gently heat the vaginal walls. This heating of the tissue inside the vagina encourages the production of collagen, which tightens your labia and vagina. 

Dr. Friehling completes the treatment using a hand-held wand. You’ll be lying comfortably, draped for privacy, and will likely only feel a gentle warming sensation from the small wand.

It can take a few treatments for you to feel the full effect of the therapy. Most women report improved vaginal laxity, better sex, reduced stress incontinence, and other positive effects of this treatment. You and your doctor can decide together how many treatments are best for you.

Good candidates for ThermiVa 

You might be a good candidate for ThermiVa if you're self-conscious about your labia and vagina. You may also want to seek this treatment for vaginal dryness, laxity issues, fragile vaginal skin, urinary incontinence, or trouble having orgasms. All of these are common issues affecting women, but that doesn't mean you have to live with them.

ThermiVa treatments don't just make things tighter and firmer. They can also help with clitoral sensitivity, sex drive, and lubrication. While it can take a few sessions to really see the full improvements, the end result will be greater confidence and enjoyment in bed.

Don't resign yourself to feeling self-conscious or uncomfortable in sexual situations. ThermiVa is completely painless, and each session can bring you closer to full sexual health and confidence.
