About ThermiVa Vaginal Rejuvenation Laser

ThermiVa is a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation laser that utilizes radiofrequency energy to improve the appearance and functionality of the vagina. ThermiVa treats vulvovaginal atrophy symptoms which are often caused by age, natural childbirth, menopause, or heredity.

These symptoms include lax vaginal tissue, stretched skin, decreases sensitivity, loose muscles which contribute to stress incontinence, dryness, pain, and irritation. Using radiofrequency energy on the labia minora and majora stimulates collagen and counters the aforementioned symptoms. The increase in collagen production tightens the tissue and increases natural lubrication which reduces pain and irritation associated with intercourse, wearing tight bottoms, or working out.

The radiofrequency energy is emitted from a small handheld single-use wand that is safely used externally and internally.

The device is adjusted to deliver the appropriate amount of heat which promotes collagen production, shrinks the targeted tissue, and initiates healthy tissue growth. This is very similar to how radiofrequency energy is used on the face to combat wrinkles and skin laxity. And the best part: optimal ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation results can be obtained in just three treatments with each session lasting about 20 minutes and no downtime required. This means women can come in during a lunch break and be on their way.


Many patients find that ThermiVa treatments provide a multitude of benefits results that leave them feeling more youthful and confident. Our patients that have undergone ThermiVa treatments have experienced some if not all of the following benefits:

  • Tightened vaginal tissue and skin
  • Improvement in dryness; stimulation of moisture creation
  • Tightening of the inner vagina walls
  • More control of bladder functions
  • Greater ability to orgasm
  • Collagen growth that adds to overall rejuvenation of the vagina
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Heightened libido
  • Enjoyable intercourse
  • Ability to wear bathing suit bottoms or leggings without discomfort
  • No pain riding a bike, running, or sitting for long periods of time

ThermiVa Candidates

ThermiVa non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation is ideal for women looking to restore their vaginal appearance and function to a more youthful state. While there isn’t medical necessity for vaginal rejuvenation procedures, we believe in doing whatever makes you feel like your best self.

Women that have had multiple natural childbirths tend to experience stretched tissue throughout the inner and outer parts of the labia. ThermiVa is safe to use just six weeks following natural childbirth.

Others may have had excess tissue since puberty and find that this leads to discomfort when wearing tight-fitting clothing or bathing suits. This treatment can shrink the labia minora to fit neatly within the labia majora, drastically reducing the aforementioned pain from wearing tight clothes or working out.

ThermiVa is safe to use on adult women of all ages and has been proven to increase lubrication and tighten muscles that help combat urinary incontinence.

Another factor that often causes stretched vaginal tissue is age. Throughout the years, women find their vaginal region has become lax because of collagen depletion, and they may have developed issues of dryness that can negatively impact the enjoyment of intercourse. Some involuntary bladder issues can also arise due to lax vaginal muscles.

Excess vaginal tissue is uncomfortable and sometimes embarrassing. Many women tend to consider surgical methods of vaginal rejuvenation when getting to this point. However, ThermiVa allows women to tighten their vaginal tissue and have a neater, more pleasing appearance through non-surgical means.

Healthy women looking into vaginal rejuvenation without the hassle of surgery or lengthy recovery times are encouraged to consider ThermiVa. Contact one of our four Bay Area offices today to schedule a consultation.

Non-Surgical vs. Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation

Women considering vaginal rejuvenation have the option of undergoing a surgical or non-surgical procedure. ThermiVa, our non-surgical option, is a quick and painless treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten vaginal tissue and muscles, help combat urinary leaks, and increase natural lubrication. Labiaplasty is our surgical vaginal rejuvenation option. Incisions are used to remove excess labial tissue and create a neater appearance. Although effective at improving the appearance of the labial tissue, labiaplasty does require incisions, sutures, and downtime from daily activities. Further, labiaplasty does not address lax muscles, nor does it increase lubrication or tighten the internal vaginal walls.

One vaginal rejuvenation option is not better than the other. Depending on the particular concerns and the patient’s anatomy, the doctor will be able to suggest which treatment method will be most effective at providing the patient with their desired results. In some cases, both procedures are performed together.


During the consultation, patients will have the opportunity to discuss their concerns regarding the appearance and functionality of their vagina. An evaluation will then allow the doctor to determine if ThermiVa treatment would provide benefit. Unless discussed otherwise, the treatment may be able to be performed on the same day as the consultation with the doctor.

A very attractive aspect of this treatment is that it can be performed during a lunch break! Busy women and moms alike can all benefit from the astounding improvements that ThermiVa can provide. We would love to meet with all patients who are looking for feminine rejuvenation and discuss the available options in order to provide them with their particular aesthetic wants and desires.


The ThermiVa treatment is performed in- office using a single-use wand. The single-use wand reduces the risk of infection, making it an even more attractive treatment to our patients. Patients will feel a warming sensation but the heat is extremely tolerable; numbing agents are not necessary. After the outer tissue of the vagina has been treated, the doctor will then treat the inner tissue.

Patients will again feel a heating sensation but this is normal and will not cause any discomfort. ThermiVa will work to tighten the inner and outer vaginal walls, providing an overall tighter vagina. The treatment lasts only 15-30 minutes and patients can return to their daily activities immediately following treatment. Patients who have undergone this treatment say that it is easier than going to your annual OBGYN check-up!

If patients have further questions regarding the ThermiVa treatment or any other vaginal rejuvenation methods, please contact our office to find out more! Our knowledgeable staff is at your service to help in any way possible.


The attractiveness of this treatment stems from the ability to return to daily activities immediately.

The treatment is quick, painless, and very effective!

An added bonus! Along with the no downtime in daily activities, women have no restrictions on their sexual activities. Women who have been dealing with their vaginal issues for long periods of time find this an attractive reason to undergo treatments. Why wait any longer to start enjoying your sex life again? This treatment is here to improve your quality of life, not slow you down!


Patients who have undergone ThermiVa treatment will begin to see, and feel, great results after just a few weeks. It is highly recommended to finish the 3 treatment sessions in order to receive optimal vaginal rejuvenation results. Patients can also come in for touch-up treatments after they’ve completed their sessions. There have been no negative side effects reported.

Patients who have chosen this course of action have seen improvements in the tightness of the inner and outer walls of the vagina. These women have also reported an increase in sexual drive, heightened sensation, and natural lubrication during intercourse. These benefits will ultimately improve overall quality of life. Women will no longer have to hesitate to wear a bikini, ride a bike, or partake in intimate situations.


Although 3 treatment sessions are generally recommended for overall vaginal rejuvenation, this treatment is still very much individualized and geared towards each patient’s specific concerns and goals. This is why it is required to come in and meet with the doctor for a consultation, in order to build a custom treatment plan and a quote based on the patient’s exact needs.
