Many women, especially after natural childbirth, suffer from urinary incontinence from simply sneezing, laughing, or while exercising. Other women will also develop uncomfortably stretched labia and vaginal laxity caused by the pressure from childbirth. As women mature and lose estrogen, they can experience reduced sexual pleasure due to vaginal dryness and reduced tone in the vaginal wall. In the past, the only options to correct these problems were invasive surgical procedures such as vaginoplasty or trying hormone-based medications which can have side effects. Today, innovative options are available to help reduce urinary stress incontinence, tighten lax external genitalia, restore vaginal tone, and improve dryness without surgery or medications.
At MI Skin, we offer both ThermiVa® and Ultra Femme 360™, radiofrequency-based treatments that can tighten both the vaginal canal and the external labial tissue. This leads to a host of benefits, including increased sexual pleasure, fewer incidences of stress incontinence, and more comfortably fitting underwear and pants.
To learn more about these treatments and what they can do for you, don’t be shy. Call MI Skin Dermatology Center in Washington, DC, at 202-393-SKIN and our warm, knowledgeable staff will answer your questions and schedule a complimentary consultation to see if one of these options is right for you.
How Does ThermiVa Work?
ThermiVa uses proven ThermiRF technology conducted through an ergonomically designed, comfortable, S-shaped hand piece. ThermiRF is a radiofrequency energy system that can be customized to different settings to meet different goals. The ThermiRF system can be used for skin tightening and even subcutaneous fat reduction. In the case of ThermiVa, the radiofrequency energy is directed towards optimal tightening of the vaginal tissue for both medical and cosmetic benefit.
The S-shaped hand piece is designed with female comfort in mind, in order to provide you with a painless and comfortable experience. The procedure takes only half an hour, and the only thing you’ll feel is a warm sensation. There is no downtime required after a ThermiVa treatment, and you can resume sexual activity that very night! The recommended number of treatments is three, spaced one month apart, and you will be able to see a noticeable improvement after the first or second treatment.

What Can this Non-Invasive Procedure Treat?
ThermiVa is a great non-invasive solution for a wide range of problems caused by lax vaginal tissue. Childbirth can cause not only stretching of the outer labia but also damage to the vaginal canal, which can lead to a feeling of “looseness,” trouble with lubrication and dryness during intercourse, diminished sexual pleasure including trouble reaching orgasm, and stress incontinence, which is when sneezing, coughing, laughing, etc. can cause leakage of urine. ThermiVa can help to reduce these problems without a single incision necessary, and none of the downtime and discomfort that goes along with having a surgical procedure done. Many patients who have undergone ThermiVa treatment at MI Skin have noticed improvement in stress-induced urinary incontinence after just one session.
In addition to helping relieve these medical problems, ThermiVa also causes a noticeable tightening of the labia, which leads to a more youthful, more attractive looking vagina. It also helps with the fit of clothes, as smaller, tighter labia fit better into pants and shorts and won’t cause a bulge or camel toe. Excessively stretched labia can cause bulging that is not only unattractive but also uncomfortable, and can cause self-consciousness when wearing swimsuits or tight-fitting pants or shorts.
Why Choose this Procedure?
ThermiVa gets results, without any of the complications or risks of surgery. When undergoing a ThermiVa procedure, you do not need anesthesia, and there is no pain or discomfort following the procedure. You can resume sexual activity immediately, and there is virtually no risk of deformation, infection, or irreversible damage as there might be from a botched surgical procedure. ThermiVa is an in-office procedure that does not require an operating room, which in turn lowers costs, allowing it to be a more affordable option than surgery as well. You can be in and out of your dermatologist’s office over your lunch break, and no one will be the wiser!
How Does Ultra Femme 360 Work?
Billed as the fastest radiofrequency treatment available for feminine rejuvenation, Ultra Femme 360 uses a customized applicator to gently and comfortably heat the vaginal and vulvar tissues, causing them to contract and tighten on their own. After treatment, the body’s natural collagen production increases over time. Safe, painless, fast, and measurably effective with no downtime, Ultra Femme 360 is one of the most promising options for nonsurgical feminine rejuvenation.
