Comparing Laser to Radiofrequency in Vaginal Rejuvenation

Plastic surgeon Jennifer L. Walden, M.D., compared radiofrequency treatment with ThermiVa (Thermi) to laser treatment with diVa (Sciton) during her presentation on noninvasive vaginal rejuvenation at the 2017 Vegas Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetic Dermatology meeting, in Las Vegas.

Dr. Walden, of the Walden Cosmetic Surgery Center, Austin, Texas, shares these highlights from her talk.

ThermiVa is a radiofrequency device, compared to diVa, which is two wavelengths — 2940 nm for the ablative and 1470 nm for the nonablative options. That’s just like Sciton's HALO laser for the face, according to Dr. Walden.

Treatment time with ThermiVa is 20 to 30 minutes, versus three to four minutes with diVa.

ThermiVa requires a manual repetitive handpiece movement over the labial and vaginal anatomy, as well as inside the vagina. This can be embarrassing for patients, due to the in-and-out motion, Dr. Walden says. diVa, on the other hand, has a stationary handpiece, with a 360-degree laser, to cover all areas of the vaginal mucosal wall as it is withdrawn from the vagina, she says.
