Background
What is ThermiVa?

ThermiVa uses RF energy that gently heats tissue to restore normal tissue tone and function. (This is the same safe technology that has been used for many years in other medical applications.)

ThermiVa can be used both externally and internally. When used inside the vagina, it has proven to effectively revive atrophic tissue and other structures.

ThermiVa is non-surgical ... so there's no downtime, no anesthesia, and sexual relations may resume the same day. Patients see a noticeable improvement after 1 or 2 sessions and the results last a long time.

Why is ThermiVa used for certain treatments?

Women are treated with ThermiVa for a number of different reasons, but these are often the most important:

  • “Loose” vaginal feel since childbirth and/or menopause
  • Vaginal dryness during intercourse
  • Trouble reaching orgasm
  • Occasional urinary dribble or leakage with sneezing, coughing or exercise
  • Intimate relationships suffering due to changes
  • Have experienced a loss of self-confidence, loss of interest in sex or loss of desire

What our patients say:

I recently had surgery performed by Dr Ashford to correct some prolapse issues. I was extremely impressed with his level of competence and caring throughout the process. I totally trusted him,the surgery was a total success at this point with followup appointments scheduled to make sure I have healed correctly.

He is an exceptional surgeon who cares personally about each of his patients. I definitely recommend Dr Ashford to any women with pelvic issues.
