The Inside Scoop on ThermiVa

by Kathryn George, MD

What is ThermiVa

You may have heard about Vaginal Rejuvenation (ThermiVa) in the news, as a new procedure touted as a cosmetic fix. As a medical doctor, I treat patients with ThermiVa from a health and wellness perspective.

ThermiVa is opening up the doors for women to address topics that affect their overall quality of life, their sex life, and therefore even their marriages, relationships, and self-image. With ThermiVa, women now have a surgery-free way to address stress incontinence, painful sex, orgasm quality, vaginal tightness, and labial appearance. ThermiVa is an exciting surgery-free option and now women are starting to have open conversations about these topics. You no longer need to suffer in silence.

Benefits of ThermiVa

ThermiVa restores what I call “Vaginal Vitality.” In addition to the cosmetic benefits, the procedure:

  • Treats Stress Incontinence without Surgery or Mesh
  • Restores Natural Lubrication without Hormones or Creams
  • Alleviates Pain During Intimacy often associated with Menopause by restoring Vaginal Wall Thickness
  • Restores Vaginal Tightness often associated with Childbirth or Aging
  • Restores Collagen Lift to Outer Labia and Tightness to Inner Labia
  • Enhances Orgasms

As a medical doctor, when I perform the ThermiVa procedure, my patients have the added benefit of my gynecological expertise—so if I see a medical concern (for example, a polyp), we’ll discuss it before, during, or after the procedure.

ThermiVa Collagen Remodeling Works, Plus Added Benefits

Collagen remodeling strengthens the structural support columns of the vaginal complex, supports the urethra, and improves the integrity of the tissue within the labia. If you’ve ever been concerned about urinary incontinence (leakage), or not feeling “tight,” the procedure can help. An additional benefit of ThermiVa is that because thermal energy is stimulates the nervous tissue of the clitoris, it can lead to enhanced orgasms and a greater sensation during intimacy. Better sex—what’s not to like?

What is the ThermiVa Process?

ThermiVa treatments are performed as a series of three treatments, each approximately one month apart. All are done in an office setting with no anesthesia. While benefits may be seen after one treatment, a series of three are needed for optimum results. An annual maintenance treatment of one session is needed to maintain results.

Patient Results

Patients couldn’t be more satisfied. The pictures, stories, Yelp reviews, RealSelf reviews say it all. Patients’ partners sometimes call in to the office or write reviews with the clients and the enthusiasm is infectious. As Dr. Lancer, the Kardashian’s doctor in California quoted so well, “ThermiVa has the BFF referral program – it is definitely the type of treatment that once a woman has experienced it, she cannot wait to tell all of her girlfriends. And then they all have it done.” My own patients’ experience has been incredible – they say they can work out without worrying about leaking urine; clients say they can have intercourse after being abstinent for years because of pain; women are saying they are no longer insecure with how they look in front of their partners; some have said orgasms are like they were in their 20s.

ThermiVa Technology: The Magic Wand

ThermiVa WandThermiVa is a state-of-the-art, computerized radio-frequency treatment that uses a probe to help tighten tissue and strengthen structural support inside the vagina and within the labia. The procedure is non-surgical, minimally invasive, painless, and there is no downtime. Applying thermal energy has become the standard for promoting collagen remodeling.

The ThermiVa Machine

The ThermiVa rejuvenation procedure involves the use of a small radiofrequency energy applicator wand – similar in shape and size to a pinky finger – which is used to provide precisely controlled heat to the treatment area to strengthen and tighten the vaginal and labial tissues.



Get Fresh Faced For Fall!

Are you ready to turn back the clock? Noticing unattractive wrinkles and fine lines?
If you’re tired of the aging look of your skin, or other issues that need skin rejuvenation, then the latest in laser technology may be the solution you’re looking for.

Vada Spa now offers PicoSure Skin Rejuvenation, a safe, effective and fast treatment that goes a step beyond existing laser technology.

What is PicoSure?

PicoSure – or the PicoSure Lens Array system – is the very latest skin rejuvenation system. Thanks to the incredible speed of the Picosure laser, a powerful beam of light is able to penetrate the outer layers of the dermis, the thick layer of living tissue below the epidermis that forms your true skin. The laser energy destroys the problem areas of the skin, ultimately removing undesirable pigment.

What Does It Treat?

The PicoSure system safely treats acne and acne scars, sun damage, freckles, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, brown spots, wrinkles and smoker lines around the mouth. It produces younger-looking skin without facial changes, and can also be used on other parts of the body, including the hands, arms, chest, neck and legs.

How Does It Work?

Lasers have been proven to be the most effective treatment option for skin rejuvenation. PicoSure uses a FOCUS lens the emits a microscopic pulse that stimulates your skin’s natural collagen and rejuvenates skin cells below the surface.

Why Use PicoSure Treatment?

PicoSure stimulates a non-traumatic tissue healing response which produces better results, shorter downtime, and higher safety for the skin. Other rejuvenation procedures, such as face lifts, fillers and toxins typically involve extended downtime, greater risks and side-effects. After a PicoSure treatment, there is only a mild redness left on the treated area that goes away in the matter of hours. It’s the perfect solution for people who want their skin to look younger without a ‘plastic’ look, as well as those who don’t want a long recovery time.

Does It Hurt?

You may experience mild, slight discomfort during the procedure, but cool air is blown on the skin to lessen pain and swelling.

How Long Will Rejuvenated Skin Last?

There are many factors which can determine how long skin clarity lasts, including lifestyle, sun exposure, smoking, tanning and sun protection habits. But with proper care, results can be long lasting.

Vada Spa Introduces PicoSure Tattoo Removal Service

Now New Yorkers can say goodbye to unwanted tattoos with advanced PicoSure laser tattoo removal technology.

Perhaps you have a tattoo that you are embarrassed of or you simply regret your decision to get a tattoo and no longer want it on your body. You can easily get your unwanted tattoo removed with laser tattoo removal. PicoSure is the latest laser when it comes to tattoo removal, utilizing advanced technology that is both safe and extremely efficient, PicoSure utilizes pulses of laser lights. During this treatment, the tattoo ink absorbs the super fast wavelength, shattering the ink into tiny pieces, which is then eliminated by your body.

The PicoSure laser targets all colors of tattoo ink, including varying shades of greens and blues. This is exciting because these colors have traditionally proven to be difficult to remove using other methods of tattoo removal. PicoSure has also been found to be effective for removing traces of tattoos that were not completely removed by other modes of tattoo removal.

While previous laser removal treatments required 10 to 20 sessions, PicoSure requires significantly fewer number of sessions. This is due to the fact that the tattoo ink is broken into much smaller pieces with PicoSure than with other laser tattoo removal options. These smaller pieces of ink are more quickly eliminated from your body. Tattoos made from colored inks generally only take three to six sessions and those with saturated black ink requires four to eight sessions on average.

Tattoo removal with PicoSure is less painful than other methods, with fewer sessions required –  less required laser removal sessions equate to less pain when it comes to removing your unwanted tattoo.

When it comes to laser tattoo removal NYC, faster, more effective results is what you want! Make sure to contact us at for a free consultation and get that unwanted tattoo removed in no time!
