A good number of women suffer from the effects of a loose vagina at some point during their lifetime. Various factors cause a vagina to lose its firmness, including aging and childbirth. These and other factors cause excessive relaxation of the vaginal muscles, thereby reducing sensation and satisfaction during sexual intercourse. Fortunately, women have a variety of treatment options that they can choose from. The premier vaginal tightening treatment option that every woman with a loose vagina should seek is ThermiVa for vaginal rejuvenation treatment.

Unlike surgical treatment methods, which involve a lot of complications, ThermiVa is a non-surgical, non-invasive labiaplasty alternative that is painless. It is a temperature-controlled treatment process that safely and efficiently uses radiofrequency energy to tighten both the inner vaginal canal and the outer labia. It also restores sexual pleasure caused by laxity in the vaginal canal and even the look of the vagina.

Are you a Candidate for ThermiVa?

Almost every woman can benefit from the ThermiVa treatment. In fact, women of all ages are eligible, but this treatment is recommended if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Dryness during intercourse
  • Sexual dissatisfaction/ orgasmic problems
  • Vaginal laxity
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Pelvic prolapse such as fallen rectum or bladder
  • If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your labia
  • Leakage when exercising, sneezing, or coughing

How Vaginal Tightening Works

ThermiVa is a curved, non-invasive device that is FDA approved to tighten loose skin. It is the first and most efficient device that is being used as a labiaplasty alternative in restoring an enlarged labia or loose and stretched vaginal tissue. The treatment works by applying heat to the targeted tissue, thereby promoting collagen production to tighten and strengthen the skin of the vagina. This controlled thermal energy can be used internally so that it can compress the walls or externally to modify the shape of the labia.

During the treatment, an exceptionally trained physician at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology will use the ThermiVa hand piece to contract the internal and external vulvovaginal tissues as well as monitor their temperature using a probe. The doctor then passes the tip of the treatment probe over the desired zone of therapy back and forth with broad sweeps and slowly for a couple of minutes. This way, the tissue is gradually heated to a therapeutically desired degree to induce collagen building and tightening. Note that the curvy nature of the ThermiVa device enables the whole procedure to be pain-free and comfortable. Past patients have even described the treatment’s sensation to be like a gentle and warm massage.

ThermiVa Treatment Plan

A complete ThermiVa procedure typically involves three separate procedures, each of which are 4-6 weeks apart. Though multiple treatments are commonly recommended, some patients get satisfied after the first or second session. If you undergo the three-treatment series for optimum results, it translates to a period of just three months. Each treatment session lasts for about 30 minutes.

During the procedure, the vaginal area will feel warm but still comfortable. There may by temporary redness or mild swelling, but you should be able to resume your daily activities (including sexual intercourse) immediately after you are treated.


The visible effect of ThermiVa is a rejuvenated appearance of the labia. Other improvements include increased sensitivity, urinary leakage elimination, and improved lubrication. The patients who lacked clitoral sensitivity and took longer to achieve orgasms before the treatment realize heightened sensitivity in both the vulva and clitoris. Those who had incontinence notice reduced or fully eliminated leakages. And those who relied on lubricants due to atrophic vaginitis report improved moisture in their vagina.

The tightening of the vagina becomes visible immediately after the first procedure with increased effects after undergoing more sessions. However, the most recognizable improvements are noticeable after about 10 days from the first treatment. The full manifestation of the treatment may take a few months, but the effects last about 9-12 months, meaning that you should have maintenance treatments once or twice a year after the first series so that you maintain optimum results.

The benefits of ThermiVa include the following:

  • It promotes collagen production, which forms smoother and tighter skin
  • Treatments for the vagina and loose labia take only 30 minutes
  • Helps reduce leaky bladder
  • Does not cause infections, blisters, burns or organ/nerve damage
  • No delays in sexual activity
  • Non-surgical alternative to labiaplasty
  • No discharge/bad odor
  • Non-ablative

As you can see, ThermiVa treatment comes with countless advantages. If you are suffering from intercourse related problems such as low libido, lack of sexual desire, vaginal firmness or sexual discontent, then this effective procedure can reverse your situation.
