Genetics, pregnancy, birth, menopause, and the natural aging process can all lead to vaginal skin laxity, vaginal dryness, and decreased sexual pleasure, among other complications and side effects. Because sexual health complications can drastically impact one's quality of life, San Diego Cosmetic Clinic in San Diego, CA is proud to provide ThermiVa treatments. As a nonsurgical procedure performed by a skilled member of Dr. Steve Laverson's team, ThermiVa utilizes radiofrequency technology to stimulate the production of collagen, which can strengthen vaginal tissue and improve functional issues.

This is an excellent treatment for those looking to revive both the appearance and functionality of their vaginal region.

"6 weeks post op - happy with my results so far - From my initial consult with Dr Laverson I knew I was going to choose him as my surgeon. I had consulted with multiple plastic surgeons before my consult at Feel Beautiful and Dr Laverson put me the most at ease and I was most comfortable with the treatment plan he suggested. I thought I had an idea of what he would suggest because of my other consults (under the muscle implants and an anchor or lollipop lift and a tummy tuck, or extended tummy tuck as one dr suggested, muscle repair and lipo) but Dr Laverson was the first dr to recommend less invasive procedures. He recommended over the muscle implants and a donut lift, a tummy tuck and muscle repair but did not recommend lipo. This sealed the deal for me because it was obvious he didnt just care about selling more procedures but cared more about his patients and their recovery and results. After I scheduled my surgery everyone at Feel Beautiful was amazing and helpful whenever I called with any questions. At my pre op Dr Laverson went over all the aspects of my surgery( donut lift and 415cc mod+ implants over the muscle and a tummy tuck and muscle repair) and I was able to ask any questions I had. At my pre op I picked implants but a few days later I called because I had changed my mind about size and this was not a big deal at all. The morning of my surgery everything went smoothly and all the other nurses and staff who I met for the first time that morning were all great. My recovery has been smooth so far and any issues I have had Dr Laverson has responded to quickly and had me come in if he felt it was necessary just to be safe. I have spoken to several other of his patients who have all said that he is quick to address any issues that come up and although I was already happy with my choice this gave me extra reassurance about my choice.I am currently 6 weeks post op and while I am happy with my results so far I will wait to post photos until I am further along in my recovery and not so swollen anymore. I would 100% suggest Dr Laveron without any reservations to anyone considering cosmetic surgery."- T. / RealSelf / Feb 23, 2022
"Over a year since surgery - tummy is gorgeous - After consultations with several other doctors I met Dr. Laverson and I knew immediately that I would trust him with my tummy tuck. He listened, did not try to upsell to more extensive procedures (as both previous surgeons had done), was very thorough and meticulous, set realistic expectations, supported me during every step of the process, had a really fantastic staff (Kourtney is amazing) and he's absolutely masterful at his art. It's been over a year since my surgery and I couldn't be happier with the finished product. My tummy is gorgeous!"- R. / RealSelf / Jan 27, 2022
The best candidate for ThermiVa is a woman with light to moderate vaginal laxity. It's also a perfect procedure for those who are unsure about having more kids and who wish to avoid the lengthy recovery period that comes with invasive surgery. As an ideal candidate for ThermiVa, you should meet the following criteria:
- At least three months post-partum from your most recent childbirth
- Completed childbearing
- Experience a marked decreased in sexual pleasure
- Possess loose outer or inner vaginal tissue
Completed by one of our team's experienced nurses as an outpatient procedure, your ThermiVa treatment will take place over three 60 – 90-minute sessions. The treatment sessions will likely be spaced about a month apart. For the actual procedure, the ThermiVa wand is placed just above the outside region of the vagina and then gently inserted into the inner vagina. The handpiece has an integrated thermometer to monitor the temperature and ensure the safety of your vaginal tissue. After your treatment, patients are advised to avoid intercourse for no less than a day. Otherwise, you will be able to continue your regular activities.
What to Expect
Women that choose ThermiVa should expect to notice their results about three weeks after their final session. Although follow-up sessions may be required, the results from your treatment can last for up to two years. If you become pregnant and give birth vaginally, your results could become compromised so Dr. Laverson advises his patients to be finished having children prior to their ThermiVa sessions.
Is a ThermiVa treatment painful?
No, a ThermiVa session doesn’t hurt. Many women report feeling a mild, relaxing warming sensation.
Is ThermiVa safe?
Yes, ThermiVa is safe. The temperature of the wand is regulated by internal sensors and thermometers, and your team member will monitor your treatment the whole time. Side-effects of the treatment are rare and, if experienced, are mild and can include redness, swelling, or discomfort at the treatment site, which usually go away after a few days.
How long does a ThermiVa treatment take?
A typical ThermiVa session takes about 60 – 90 minutes.
When can I expect to see results from ThermiVa treatment?
Most women can expect to see results about three weeks after their final session.
How long do the results of ThermiVa last?
Some follow-up sessions may be required to achieve the best results, but many women will see their results last up to two years.
Can I still have children after a ThermiVa treatment?
Yes, you can. However, having children can affect your results and may require you to have ThermiVa treatments again to regain your results. That's why Dr. Laverson recommends waiting until you are done having children before your ThermiVa treatments.
