San Diego ThermiVa

Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation

Many women are impacted by the effects of childbirth, genetics, and aging, leaving their vaginal tissues and supporting muscles stretched and weakened. This can often be felt not just by the woman, but also by her partner.

If these changes have impacted your sexual activity or left you feeling self-conscious over loss of tone in your vaginal muscles, we now offer a nonsurgical option: ThermiVa. ThermiVa is a minimally invasive vulvovaginal rejuvenation treatment that safely and effectively tightens labia and vaginal tissues.

How ThermiVa Works

ThermiVa utilizes a proprietary thermal energy technology to specifically and precisely target and tighten underlying tissues. This technology, Thermi, is the same, effective technology used in other ThermiAesthetics devices, such as ThermiTight™. During treatment, the targeted vaginal tissue is heated through the application of radiofrequency until shrinkage occurs and the desired results are achieved.

ThermiVa noticeably tightens female genital tissues, making it a great, minimally invasive alternative to other feminine rejuvenation procedures. The treatment has also been shown to help alleviate post-menopausal dryness, improve urinary stress or mild incontinence, and improve orgasm quality in patients who are anorgasmic.

Since 1988, more than 30,000 patients have had safe, successful procedures at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre.

Your ThermiVa Procedure

We begin your treatment by carefully and precisely applying a soft, plastic S-shaped probe to administer treatment to the labia and inside the vagina. Treatment typically takes 30 minutes and is quite comfortable—no anesthesia is required and patients report that treatment feels like a gentle massage.

After treatment, you should be able to resume all of your normal activities immediately with little-to-no residual sensitivity in the area. Results should gradually appear over the course of two weeks, though this can vary from patient to patient, and some women report noticing improvement almost immediately.

While we often recommend a series of three ThermiVa treatments spaced one month apart, some women are pleased with their results after just one treatment. In these instances, patient goals are met early and further therapy is not required.
