ThermiVa Overview

ThermiVa Logo in San Diego

Cosmetic Laser Dermatology is excited to be one of the first practices in America to offer ThermiVa treatment, an innovative non-invasive surgery for vaginal tightening treatment device developed by the makers of ThermiTight and ThermiLift.

Many women suffer from lax vaginal canals and stretched labia, especially after childbirth. This can lead to a number of unpleasant side effects, including incontinence, lack of sexual pleasure, physical discomfort, and lack of sexual self-confidence. The ThermiVa treatment aims to address these issues in a painless, non-surgical manner.

ThermiVa is a completely non-invasive device that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten loose skin. It is based on the same principles as the ThermiTight device, which is FDA approved to lift and tighten skin on the face and neck. ThermiVa is the first non-surgical vaginal tightening device available and is exciting news for women who are suffering from loose, stretched, or enlarged labia and/or vaginal canals but don’t want to undergo a surgical labiaplasty.

Benefits of ThermiVa

ThermiVa is FDA cleared and instrumental in helping to treat a number of medical conditions experienced by women who are suffering from vulvovaginal laxity or VVL, due to natural childbirth, the aging process, or any other cause. Natural aging causes degradation of connective tissue quality, while childbirth can cause damage and stretch the delicate tissues, leading to various medical conditions, such as:

Vulvar/Labial (External) Tightening

The procedure will completely tighten external labia tissue and reduce “camel toes.” This will result in noticeably smoother and softer skin. Patients will experience more comfort in tight undergarments and have less self-consciousness in bikinis and yoga pants.

Treats Stress Incontinence

Stress incontinence is a condition in which urine is involuntarily released when sneezing, coughing, or exercising. By tightening the tissues and muscles of the vagina with ThermiVa, many women experience better control over their bladders, resulting in fewer accidents.

Reduce Atrophic Vaginitis (Dryness)

Atrophic vaginitis is an uncomfortable condition in which the genital area becomes dry, itchy, or even inflamed due to a lack of natural moisture. This condition typically occurs after menopause and can make everyday life uncomfortable and sexual activity may be painful. With ThermiVa the delicate tissues and nerves in the vagina can be restored and strengthened, resulting in improved moisture and overall comfort.

Improve Sexual Function and Pleasure

Sexual dysfunction is another major issue that can be treated with ThermiVa technology. Many older women and women who have gone through natural childbirth experience reduced natural moisture and sensation during sexual activities, as well, which can hamper intimacy with a partner and cause relationship dissatisfaction. ThermiVa can help restore natural lubrication as well as physical sensations and the ability to orgasm by strengthening the vaginal tissues and nerves.

Avoid Surgery

ThermiVa is also a vaginoplasty alternative. ThermiVa safely tightens vulvovaginal tissue and can help restore sexual sensation for women.

In many cases, ThermiVa treatments can help women avoid surgery altogether and may even allow them to stop using oral or topical medications for their conditions. ThermiVa can help women feel confident and comfortable in their own bodies again, without worrying about incontinence, intimacy, or other issues arising from VVL. ThermiVa vulvovaginal skin tightening is not merely about vaginal appearance – it can help improve women’s quality of life.

Zero Downtime

You can go to the gym, have sex or do anything you feel like immediately after the procedure.

Affordable Cost

ThermiVa is considerably cheaper than other solutions. The single-use handpiece is disposable and cheap. It costs a fraction of other solutions’ costs.


There are no complications or adverse reactions with ThermiVa. No burns or blisters.

No Anesthesia

ThermiVa feels like a warm stone massage; hence there is no need for any type of anesthesia.

Who is a Candidate for ThermiVa?

Ladies in their late 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and 60’s can benefit from ThermiVa, especially if you are experiencing any of the following issues:

  • You usually clench your legs together when sneezing so that you won’t urinate a bit
  • You want your orgasms more often or quicker
  • You need a lubricant to comfortably enjoy vaginal sex
  • You wear a panty liner every day just to catch that small bit of urine
  • You always feel like you have been pulled or stretched in all directions
  • You do not feel as if there is enough friction between you and your partner when having sex

To be one of the first to experience this revolutionary new treatment, just contact Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego! To learn more about ThermiVa and to schedule a consultation, call us today!

What to Expect

ThermiVa is a painless procedure that requires no anesthesia or downtime. Patients can simply lie back and relax while the innovative S-shaped handpiece is moved over the labia and inside the vagina, gently heating and tightening the tissue. Patients have described the sensation as a gentle, warm massage. The treatment lasts about 30 minutes, and three treatments over three months are recommended for full results.

Some people see immediate improvement directly after a procedure, while others may see gradual improvement for around two weeks afterward. Results last for up to a year and many patients report improved quality of life after a ThermiVa treatment. There is no need to live with vaginal laxity reduction following childbirth or simply due to age – ThermiVa can help you regain lost firmness!
