ThermivaThermi uses the science of heat to deliver safe, reliable and high quality results for patients. The unique heat-controlled skin tightening technology of ThermiVa can be quickly and painlessly used to tighten up the external appearance of the vaginal area, as well as being used internally to restore hydration, sexual sensation and bladder control.

A small probe is used to deliver heat to the inner and outer areas of the vagina. No anaesthetic is required as this procedure is painless.

As a non-surgical and minimally invasive option, Thermi offers a broad range of skin-tightening solutions for long-lasting results with minimal downtime.  Such is the efficacy of the heating technology, most areas only require a single treatment session – letting you get back to your daily life as quickly as possible.

During Thermi treatment, your doctor will gently heat specific tissues to a pre-determined therapeutic temperature. The heating is precisely controlled, with the various Thermi applicators providing the doctor with constant feedback of the actual temperature during treatment. In addition, an infrared camera is used to monitor skin temperature to ensure that your treatment is both safe and effective.

ThermiVa has been developed and clinically tested by expert medical practitioners, to ensure each treatment gives consistent safety and lasting results for the patient.


Patient Testimonial

THERMiVA is a treatment new to Northern Ireland which alleviates, women’s incontinence as well of other vaginal weakness problems.

In my case  it impacted on my entire life as I always felt that I had to be near a toilet. I flooded sanitary pads if I could not reach a toilet in time.

I consider myself very fortunate to have read about THERMiVA firstly in the Belfast Telegraph and then in the Ulster Tatler.

The treatment involves three sessions lasting around thirty minutes each. I experienced progressive improvement after each visit.

Prof. Dornan  and his colleague carried out the procedure in a non-invasive, pain free manner. I can honestly say that both of them went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and at ease.

I would not hesitate to recommend this treatment to any woman who is suffering the unpleasant effects of incontinence.
