During his career Dr. Derderian has performed hundreds of surgical procedures for vaginal laxity and incontinence. Now there’s a non-surgical alternative.

What is ThermiVa

Although it can be uncomfortable to talk about, most women experience vaginal and vulvar changes after childbirth or simply due to aging causing dryness, discomfort, a lack of sensation during intercourse, incontinence, and other problems. Although these changes are natural, they can take their toll on a woman’s sexual well-being and her overall self-confidence, affecting her relationships and the way she sees herself. Many women facing these challenges have turned to surgical options for vaginal rejuvenation, but now ThermiVa®,offers  a non-surgical solution for women who want results without incisions, sutures, sutures, or long recovery times.You may be a candidate for non-surgical ThermiVa if you’ve experienced any of the following changes as the result of vaginal birth or aging:

  • Vaginal dryness, even when sexually aroused
  • Laxity or decreased tightness of the vargina
  • An increase in time to reach orgasm
  • Diminished sexual satisfaction
  • Occasional urinary incontinence
  • A change in the shape, size, or volume of your labia

Singularly or combined, these symptoms can lead to sexual dissatisfaction and discomfort experienced during everyday activities. Labial changes can make wearing certain types of clothing, such as yoga pants, uncomfortable or visually problematic. Less bladder control means worrying about leakage with every laugh, sneeze, or jogging session.

Your ThermiVa Treatment

During a ThermiVa treatment, we direct the sterile, handpiece to the targeted tissue. Depending on your needs, this may include your labia minora, labia majora, clitoris, or the inside of your vagina. The handpiece emits radiofrequency thermal energy which causes tightening of tissue, the development of collagen and improved blood flow. Most women report a moderate sensation of warmth during the treatment, much like a hot stone massage. No anesthesia is necessary. Treatment time is about 1 hour. We offer two different protocols for patients to select from, each tailored to the individual patient’s needs.


You may return to your regular activities immediately after your ThermiVa treatment —including sexual activity the  same day. Most women report noticeable results soon after the very first treatment. These include enhanced sensitivity, a “tighter” feeling, enhanced lubrication, and fewer episodes of urinary incontinence. Over time, gravity and aging begin to affect these delicate tissues once again. Single maintenance treatments can be performed annually, or as needed, at a reduced cost.
