ThermiVa: The Revolutionary Technology for Vulvovaginal Rejuvenation and Noninvasive Management of Female SUI

J Obstet Gynaecol India. 2016 Aug;66(4):300-2. doi: 10.1007/s13224-016-0868-0. Epub 2016 Apr 12.


Addressing vaginal laxity, atrophic vaginitis, stress urinary incontinence (SUI), and different manifestations of sexual dysfunction has always been problematic due to women's traditional difficulty discussing these issues with doctors as well as the societal attitude of resignation toward these conditions. The recent rise of non-invasive feminine rejuvenation using energy-based modalities to vaginal tissue has its origins in aesthetic medicine. Transcutaneous temperature-controlled radiofrequency therapy at the vulvovaginal region has shown promising results in giving a more youthful appearing vulva, restoration of vaginal elasticity and 'tightness', considerable improvement in SUI, reduction in overactive bladder symptoms, and reduction in sexual dysfunction. It is also emerging as the non-invasive treatment modality for mild to moderate SUI. It seems that the time has come, when women shall ever be grateful to their gynecologist for management of SUI with ThermiVa without an incision.
