Whether due to childbirth or aging, vaginal dryness is a problem for many women. The vagina area can become lax, causing reduced sensation, lack of libido, and less enjoyment in sexual intercourse. Some women have urinary stress incontinence, which is both uncomfortable and embarrassing. Our Chicago ThermiVa treatment has proven to be very effective in treating all of these conditions, for both young and older women.


Dr. Placik is known for being at the forefront of surgical and non-surgical female genital rejuvenation, and uses the ThermiVa treatment for many of his patients, with outstanding results. Our patients report that they feel younger, and like a “new woman” after the treatment, and experience a higher level of satisfaction — often better than at any time of their lives.


The process involves using radiotherapy to stimulate the body to produce collagen in the vaginal area. It is capable of shrinking stretched tissues of the outer labia, and tightening the vagina. The device works to direct heat to tissues that have stretched, become dry, or lax. The heat is carefully directed to the area being treated with a small, slim device, and does not require anesthetic. There is no pain involved in the process, and it takes only about 30 minutes to perform. The specially-designed probe is put into the patient’s vagina so that the heat is directed to the entire area, stimulating the glands that produce lubrication. The treatment creates results that continue to improve over the days and weeks. It may require several treatments to achieve the desired results, but typically our patients report that the results are rapid, and impressive. You can return to your normal activities after treatment, including intercourse.
