Called ThermiVA, the device gently heats tissue so that women can reclaim, restore and revive feminine wellness without anesthesia, discomfort or downtime. The patented ThermiVa electrode is designed to treat the internal and external anatomical features of the vagina. It generally is done three times, a month apart.

According to Dr. Stevens, "Women have a variety of reasons to have a vaginal rejuvenation procedure, but many have put it off because they did not want to have surgery." He says that the procedure is indicated for women who have had a vaginal delivery, trouble reaching orgasm, feel embarrassed to wear tight jeans or exercise pants, experience urinary incontinence, urgency or frequency or a loss of desire for sexual relations, among other reasons.

"This procedure offers a comfortable outpatient experience," he said. He added that excessive stretching of the vaginal muscles is a common occurrence after vaginal birth or due to aging. Damage can diminish sensation during sexual activity, reduce satisfaction and change the relationship between partners. After a consultation, MPSA ThermiVa expert Jennifer Tinelli, NP, will perform the outpatient procedure and track the client’s progress.
