From a Physician who had ThermiVa:
“I am turning 50 this year and I am noticing many changes in my body. As a female physician in the aesthetic field, I have mastered a repertoire of non-invasive solutions to address many of the aging changes that bother my patients, thus every day helping my patients feel better and more confident about themselves. However, some of the changes that happen to women with aging such as vaginal dryness, vaginal mucosa thinning, vaginal canal laxity, urinary leakage and decrease sensation with sexual intercourse, even as a physician, I thought had to just be accepted and endured until I discovered ThermiVa.

Bladder leakage and lack of orgasm with intimacy were two of the nuisance aging changes form which I have silently suffered for many years. I never told my doctor at my yearly checkups. I never talked about it with my husband. Why not? Because until now, other than hormone replacement which I was already on, and surgical intervention which I was really not ready for, medicine did not offer any easy solutions. This is astounding to me, as these problems effect all women in their peri-menopausal and or menopausal years. Then I discovered ThermiVa.

Today, I finished my third monthly ThermiVa treatment. I am delighted to share with you that my results thus far have exceeded my expectations. My Urinary leakage has reduced by 80% and my doctor assures me that my results will continue to improve during the next three months. I am finding sexual intercourse as enjoyable as in my twenties again.

In short, I was so delighted with my ThermiVa results 2 weeks into my second treatment that I decided to buy the technology and offer ThermiVa to my patients. We introduced ThermiVa at a recent practice event, sharing my ThermiVa experience with our patients. I am truly amazed by the number of women who felt comfortable confiding in my staff and I about the feminine changes bothering them, with many signing up to initiate their treatment series.

As a peri- menopausal woman, I recommend ThermiVa treatments to any woman suffering from feminine aging changes. As a compassionate physician, I recommend ThermiVa technology to physicians who are considering adding this treatment to their practice. “



​​I started menopause when I was 50 years old. Menopause came with alot negative side effects such as hot flashes, irritability and most of all the inability to produce sufficient vaginal lubrication during intercourse. The inability to produce sufficient vaginal lubrication started as uncomfortable during sex and over the years became so painful that during the last 10 years of my marriage I stopped having sex completely. I could not use oral hormone replacements due to an extremely high incidence of breast cancer in my family and my ob/gyn did not offer any suggestions to alleviate the problem besides the use of over the counter lubrication which quite honestly made intercourse bearable but certainly not pleasant for me.

I stopped having sex with my husband and the result was devastating as we grew further and further apart due to the loss of our intimacy. In 2012 I lost my husband to brain cancer and although I was still fairly young, I decided I would live my life alone as I knew my limitations NO SEX.

Then the unthinkable happened, I met a man (12 years my junior) that after spending an extensive time together we fell in love, I had truly meet my “Sole Mate”. So I decided I really needed to try to have sex and it ended in disaster. Not only was it painful, he was unable to gain full penetration and I suffered urinary tract inflammation immediately following sex. I RAN TO THE NEAREST OB/GYN SCREAMING HELP!!!!! She was helpful and advised me that his issue was not abnormal and prescribed a vaginal estrafiol creme to be applied 3 times per week to help the vaginal tissue repair itself as it was actually tearing during intercourse, and an antibiotic to be taken immediately following intercourse to prevent the inflammation of my urethra and the inability to empty my bladder.

Prior to menopause I use to have such a healthy sex life and loved the physical and psychological aspects of sex and now I was faced with ending a relationship that was so beautiful and perfect EXCEPT I could not share and experience sex with someone I truly loved. I did everything possible to find a solution, I purchased dilators to stretch the vaginal muscles, I applied every kind of lubricant I could find on the internet including purchasing products in England and Canada, nothing worked sufficiently so I cried alot and told Greg that I needed to end our relationship. He refused to accept the termination of your relationship and told me it didn’t matter, but it clearly did.

I started researching doctor’s domestically and internationally. I researched each doctors background, their client satisfaction ratings, their experience and medical papers they had
written. I had over 20 one on one consultations with gynecologists and urologists regarding my problem and no one had an answer except to continue the protocol I was on, until YOU!!!

Finding you was my Blessing. You listened to everything I had to share and offered an immediate solution that was not invasive (ie surgery), you offered a procedure you called ThermiVa which you used on my vagina both internally and externally. The procedure was quick an extremely comfortable and relaxing. The full treatment protocol is one treatment for 30 minutes once a month for 3 months.

However, after only my first treatment I initiated sex with my husband with great fear that I would still have the pain and discomfort but you told me to give it a try. OMG!!!! Not only was it not painful for me it was the best orgasm I had experienced in the past 20 years, and the same was true for my husband, he said it was amazing how firm and tight I was, but the real difference was all the natural lubrication that I was now producing. My life is changed forever because of you Dr. Alinsod and the impact that you can have on so many lives is immeasurable.

Thank you for all your hard work and dedication that lead you to develop the Vaginal ThermiVa technique. You are a genius and angel and a life and relationship saver.

I am a 53 year old woman who has had two children. My labia had become loose and a big saggy and no matter how many Kegels I did, my vagina felt large and loose. Sex was OK, but I had lost some confidence in myself and ability to please my partner. I didn’t really know what to think about “the procedure performed,” but there was no down side to it. There was no pain during or after, no burning, no discharge, no mess. After the first treatment in a series of three, I was surprised that my labia seemed closer to my body and there was also some vaginal tightening.

It was after the second treatment that I noticed a significant difference. My labia were fuller and softer and my vagina was noticeably tighter. Sex was very good. I had not told my partner that I was having the procedure. He is ten years older that me and has difficulty ejaculating during intercourse. So I was surprised when my new tightness created enough friction for him to alleviate that issue. Sex became better for both of us. I could feel him more and sex was more pleasureable for both of us.

I did not think things could get tighter or sex better, until after the third treatment. But they did, and I am so thankful to Dr. Alinsod for recommending this procedure to me. I feel better about myself, more youthful and sexier. My partner is a happy man and our sex life, which was good, is now better than ever.
