What is ThermiVa?
The effects of pregnancy, aging, and menopause can bring about unwanted changes to your feminine health. If you're experiencing vaginal skin laxity, dryness, or decreased sensation, you might benefit from ThermiVa treatments at Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta. ThermiVa is a nonsurgical procedure performed by highly experienced gynecologist Dr. Gerry Sotomayor. The treatment uses a comfortably shaped radiofrequency (RF) handpiece that gently warms the vaginal tissues to promote collagen production. This helps tighten and rejuvenate the internal and external vaginal area, which improves both appearance and functionality. We encourage you to schedule an appointment at our office near Norcross, GA to learn more.

"I don’t have a reason to complain for the liposuction procedure at this clinic. The staff were friendly they didn’t share my procedure to anyone I was with. I simply brought myself with my lying roommate and he picked me up for the medical clinic after a couple hours. Healed just fine."- V. / Google / Dec 19, 2021
"(Translated by Google) Excellent doctor, I have known him since 97, he took care of my daughters' pregnancies, I love that he talks about God, great human being, it almost takes me 1 hour to get there, but it doesn't matter because doctor, like him, there is no where I live in covington, ga, what else can I say? God bless you always !!!! (Original) Excelente doctor lo conozco desde el 97 el atendió mis embarazos de mis hijas me encanta que habla d Dios gran ser humano casi me toma 1 hora para llegar pero no importa porque doctor como el no hay donde vivo en covington ga que mas puedo de decir d el k Dios lo Bendiga siempre!!!!"- T.M. / Google / Nov 18, 2021
"Love my Results but Scarring is Bad - I waited until I could do a real review. Now I’m over 3 months post-op. I first did a consultation the second week of March. Everything went well and told me I would be a candidate. The staff was really nice-A1. I met Dr Sotomayor briefly this day. I paid the deposit and scheduled for 2 weeks out for lower/upper ab and flanks (i wanted to do the back rolls as well but decided not to). I honestly booked on faith because the reviews were iffy. Day of surgery, I come in they take vitals and give me a “relaxation pill” and local anesthesia. Now here is where my problem lies but I was so out of it, I couldn’t respond at the time. I thought Dr Sotomayor was doing the surgery but it ended up being a lady named Dr. V. I feel she did me good but this def should’ve been communicated because I literally knew nothing about her. During the approx 2hr surgery, it was a bit painful but they acknowledged my pain and handled it great. I was sent home with instructions and meds.To sum this all up, I love my results considering I had a lot of fat-i think she said she got rid of 4000cc. After the lipo, i was not in a ton of pain but the itching and swelling is a beast. The scarring is bad. I have use Shea butter, Vitamin E oil and Bio Oil every single day, twice a day. The scarring has improved and hopefully will be non existent one day but only time and consistency will tell. If you are ok with scarring then go with them. The price was good considering I had a 35 BMI. My advice to Graceful Contours is to be up front about who will perform the surgery. I will add pics of my great outcome!"- C. / RealSelf / Jul 25, 2021

Who is a candidate for ThermiVa?
A consultation is the best way to determine your candidacy for ThermiVa. During this assessment, Dr. Sotomayor will ask about your medical history and current health concerns to get a better understanding of your needs. We also perform a physical exam of the treatment area. Generally speaking, most women who experience changes in their vaginal health due to age, pregnancy, or menopause can benefit from this procedure. Those with active infections, open wounds, or undiagnosed abdominal pain will not be able to undergo ThermiVa at this time.
Our Thermiva Technique
ThermiVa is an outpatient procedure performed within about 30 – 40 minutes near Norcross, GA. You might need to have three separate treatments spaced about one month apart to get your best results. To perform the treatment, Dr. Sotomayor will use the ThermiVa wand to heat the external and internal vaginal tissues by using gentle RF energy. The wand has an integrated thermometer to monitor the temperature and manage the safety of your skin. You may feel a warm sensation, but it should not be painful. After the session, you can go back to your normal day, but you should avoid sexual intercourse for at least 24 hours. You can expect to notice the benefits of your treatment within about two weeks with results lasting up to one year.
What to expect after ThermiVa
Most women report excellent results after just one ThermiVa treatment. However, you may need to have a series of sessions spaced a few weeks apart for optimal outcomes. Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta can provide detailed aftercare instructions that include avoiding sexual intercourse and tampon use. Results are long-lasting, but you may need maintenance treatments every few years to preserve your results. Our team can answer any questions you have about ThermiVa recovery during a consultation.
How much does ThermiVa cost?
The expense of ThermiVa might vary from patient to patient based on the number of treatment sessions needed to achieve optimal results. After your customized treatment plan is established, we will go over the exact cost of your ThermiVa treatments. We'll also answer any questions you have about your out-of-pocket costs.
What is the distinction between ThermiVa and labiaplasty?
ThermiVa is ideal for females who are not sure about having more children as it is not as expensive, quicker, and does not require a healing time. Even though ThermiVa is a beneficial treatment choice for females who have moderate vaginal laxity, it might not be the ideal alternative for women with severe loose skin. A labiaplasty is the surgical removal of the extra skin near the vaginal region and might be better for women with substantial vaginal skin laxity.
How many ThermiVa treatments will I need?
For great effects, a series of three ThermiVa treatments spaced around one month apart is advised. After the three initial sessions, yearly touch-ups may be necessary to help maintain effects. Furthermore, the natural aging process, significant weight changes, pregnancy, and childbirth can impact results.
What issues are treated with ThermiVa?
By developing a tighter genital region, ThermiVa may also treat several additional issues that may have occurred through aging and other elements. ThermiVa was made to reduce vaginal laxity as well as vulvar or labial laxity to strengthen the labial skin and minimize any sagging. It can also reduce incontinence and dryness to minimize any leakage, accidents, or urge symptoms. Furthermore, ThermiVa can treat orgasmic difficulties or sexual dysfunction by helping to heighten sensitivity and increase the ability to reach orgasm.
How does ThermiVa work?
ThermiVa utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy to warm up the deep layers of your skin from inside the body. Utilizing the controlled and carefully monitored delivery of energy directly where it's needed most enables the tissues to be tightened beneath the skin. With radiofrequency energy, there is much less discomfort for the patient, and outstanding results are achieved.
