Invented by Red Alinsod, MD, FACOG, FACS, ThermiVa is an in-office, non-surgical procedure for skin tightening, used for dermatologic conditions. A radio frequency generator, made by Thermi Aesthetics powers a “S” shaped hand piece that tightens external and internal vulvovaginal tissue via a thermistor tip which is able to control heat delivered. The tip has gentle curves that provide comfort.
The ThermiAesthetics flagship product is the ThermiRF Temperature Controlled Radio Frequency Generator System and is FDA cleared for dermatological and general surgical procedures for electrocoagulation and hemostasis, and to create lesions in nervous tissue. ThermiRF is an advanced technology using finely controlled thermal energy. It is a multi-use platform, which promotes increased patient safety and clinical effectiveness while providing versatile solutions for physicians serving the aesthetic market. ThermiRF features a unique temperature control feature and uses proprietary handpieces, which are designed for specific medical applications. These include a variety of disposal RF electrodes and cannulas and reusable non-invasive handpieces.
