Dr. Richard Gentile a board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon and International Aesthetic Technology Expert with offices in Youngstown and Akron is pleased to announce that we are the first Plastic Surgery Center in Northern Ohio to offer the exciting new aesthetic technology from ThermiAesthetics ThermiVA a temperature controlled focused Radio Frequency device.

After years of research and testing, physicians now have a new FDA-cleared non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment called ThermiVa. Dr. Richard Gentile is pleased to announce he is offering this revolutionary 30-minute treatment to patients in northern Ohio.

As many women know, child birth and aging can diminish sensation during sexual activity, reduce natural lubrication and satisfaction and can also lead to bladder control issues and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). But now there is help for all of these issues with ThermiVa.

Dr. Gentile explains that the ThermiVa temperature controlled radiofrequency (RF) system was invented, designed and developed to perform non-invasive RF skin and vaginal tightening. He has documented particularly strong results in postpartum & perimenopausal women. As an international technology expert who has developed many protocols for temperature controlled laser and Radio Frequency treatments Dr. Gentile notes that the protocols for ThemiVa are complimentary to what we have been doing for some time in skin facial and neck rejuvenation.

ThermiVA is a non-surgical procedure which uses a handheld wand to deliver controlled radiofrequency thermal energy to the external and/or internal region of the vagina. When the tissues are gently heated to a therapeutic level, they will contract into tighter bundles, and this incisionless vaginal tightening procedure will rejuvenate collagen, cell health, increase production of natural lubricants, and tighten the vagina without anesthesia, discomfort or downtime. Although many women experience noticeable improvement with only one treatment, patients may take up to 3 sessions to realize best results. ThermiVa can also create a more youthful vaginal appearance.

The ThermiVa procedure is administered over three months in three treatment sessions. It requires no anesthetics and no downtime. During clinical studies, physicians reported patients were comfortable, relaxed and pleased with the noticeable results.

ThermiVa is targeted to treat vulvovaginal laxity, atrophic vaginitis, stress incontinence, overactive bladder, and orgasmic dysfunction. To learn more about ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation, visit
