How to Treat Vaginal Problems – ThermiVa 

15 Min Read – If you’re having vaginal problems like dryness, pain, urinary incontinence no matter how slight it may seem currently, it is an indication your body is signaling to you that it isn’t functioning as it should. As we age, menopause, hormone fluctuations, stress-induced vaginal issues and even post-pregnancy can all contribute to vaginal muscles starting to experience laxity and sexual dysfunction.

But with treatment, medical research has shown that non-surgical transcutaneous temperature-controlled radiofrequency treatment at the vulvovaginal region will improve these issues. ThermiVa is your answer. Early treatment and intervention go a long way when it comes to feminine issues. So don’t hesitate to speak to our doctors here at Dr Cindy’s Medical Aesthetics about your intimate struggles, we understand women!

“Non-surgical procedures and treatments

that address feminine issues are preferred”


What is ThermiVa? – Treats Feminine Issues

Non-surgical procedures and treatments that address feminine issues are preferred over invasive cosmetic surgery as there are less complications and have minimal downtime. However, there are few treatments in the market that will tick all the boxes but with our FDA (US) and HSA (SG) approved treatment, ThermiVa, has been proven to help women address womanly issues like vaginal laxity, sagging, thinning of vaginal walls and urinary incontinence. Now you need not go under the knife for vaginal rejuvenation. Read on if you can identify with the following issues.

Why does it Happen? – 10 Signs and Symptoms of Feminine Issues

Vaginal issues are sometimes a result of stretched vaginal muscles because of massive changes to our bodies especially during pregnancy and post pregnancy. Post-menopausal women can also experience these changes in our vaginal region due to aging and is sometimes called Vulvovaginal Atrophy (VVA).


Even stress can also bring on these changes so the key is to spot them early. When estrogen levels drop, symptoms may become more pronounced so do heed and pay immediate attention to these signs and symptoms that are usually manifested as:

  1. Dryness in the vaginal area
  2. Thinning of the vaginal wall
  3. Inflammation, redness
  4. Pain during urinating
  5. Urine leakage
  6. Abnormal discharge
  7. Genital itching, bleeding or burning sensation
  8. Need to urine more frequently – Bladder issues
  9. Pain during sexual intercourse
  10. Lack of natural lubrication, causing discomfort and pain during intercourse


How does ThermiVa Work? – Safe and Non-Invasive (No Surgery)

Vaginal Rejuvenation can be achieved with this non-invasive, surgery and hormonal-free, FDA-approved treatment with ThermiVa. It uses Radio Frequency (RF) to gently and safely heat up vaginal tissues around the vulvovaginal region working in much of the same way as more popular RF treatments on the face. The resultant heat stimulates collagen production and strengthens the muscular structure of the vagina. Aging, childbirth and a whole range of other issues like hormonal changes and stress result in loss of collagen, and the key factor in ThermiVa is to stimulate our own body to regenerate collagen production again, similar to how when women were younger. This form of treatment with RF has been widely used in aesthetic medicine for decades without any adverse side effects yet producing visible results with extensive research conducted.


Busting Common Myths

Let’s look at some common misconceptions about vaginal rejuvenation with RF energy and the efficacy of treatment results.


Myth 1 – Vaginal Rejuvenation Requires Painful Surgery1

Nope. Medical research has been done on the efficacy of ThermiVa or RF energy-induced treatments and has shown that they increase skin and muscular elasticity as cells are remodeled to stimulate collagen production naturally. The same medical tech applied to current non-invasive treatments through RF energy for surgery-free facelifts like Non surgical RF skin tightening is not new in dermatology and aesthetic medicine.


Myth 2 – The RF Energy is Harmful to our Body2

The energy from ThermiVa doesn’t penetrate all the way into the body and is therefore not possible to harm or damage any internal organs. Non-invasive treatments do not penetrate the body and require no open cosmetic surgery. Our treatment has been extensively performed worldwide with proven medical research done in RF – also used for endometrial ablation to reduce abnormal blood loss during a women’s menstrual cycle.


Myth 3 – Only Open Surgery Works3,4

Efficacy of using RF-based treatments like ThermiVa has been medically tested and proven to work as a non-surgery option for women of the average age of 32 (21-40)  and with an average of 2.6 pregnancies, and 1.8 vaginal deliveries. An average of 3 treatments were optimal to produce these results.


Post Treatment Results

The ThermiVa applicator/electrode produces a gentle current that pulses through the skin. The resistance from our skin generates heat that stimulates the fibroblasts to produce collagen and restructure/remodels weakens cells with increased blood flow and necollagenesis to start. Skin is firmer, tighter vaginal muscles due to increased collagen production.


A gel is first applied to the external labia majora and minora before a specially designed handpiece is gently introduced. This handpiece/applicator is gently moved around the whole external labia area before being placed in the vaginal canal. You will experience a warm sensation with no discomfort throughout the session.

  • Stimulates collagen production gently through RF energy heat
  • Strengthens the pelvic muscles supporting the lining mucosa tissues around the vulvovaginal area.
  • No Downtime
  • Sexual intercourse after treatment is possible
  • About 30 minutes for each treatment
  • Done through 3 treatments


We recommend complementing ThermiVa, with the TESLA Former chair that has also been cleared and approved for treatment in Singapore.
