Childbirth, frequent intercourse and aging are the biggest factors of degradation for vaginal sensation and health. As a result, the surrounding vaginal tissues widen causing, dryness, loss of libido, and certain vaginal atrophy symptoms such as itching, burning sensation, soreness or painful sex due to vaginal dryness. Vaginal dryness that occurs with aging can make sex uncomfortable or impossible and loosening of the surrounding tissues can result in leakage of urine.
Over time, the tissues around the vagina elongate producing a less youthful appearance as well as difficulties with tight fitting clothing and increased perspiration in the area.

Why Thermi-Va over its competitors?
Thermi-Va provides an immediate tightening and improved cosmetic appearance. Mona Lisa Touch is not a cosmetic technique for vaginal rejuvenation. The Mona Lisa Touch helps with vaginal atrophy resulting from estrogen deficiency; which Thermi-Va technology has proven to master.
Radiofrequency energy has gained popularity in the early 2000s and is now touted superior in tightening the external and internal vulvovaginal tissue via a thermistor tip. The tip has gentle curves that provide comfort. Other technologies including Femilift use CO2 energy may carry more risk.

Thermi-Va non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation or Labiaplasty surgery?
Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Leonard Lu skillfully performs labiaplasty surgery for a more cosmetic enhanced appearance to the vagina including labia minora reduction and labia majora excision. Labiaplasty does not help with incontinence like Thermi-Va.
Many women are dissatisfied with their labia or sexual anatomy. In many cases, women are simply born with a large labia. In other cases, they may develop an enlarged labia as a result of childbirth or aging. Labiaplasty is the enhancement or reduction of the inner and/or outer labia (vaginal lips) to create more aesthetic contours that can help you feel more confident in your intimate relationships.
Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure performed under twilight or general anesthesia. Any excess tissue is removed from the labia minora, and self-dissolving sutures are used, which usually dissolve within a week. Labiaplasty is done as an outpatient procedure under twilight or general anesthesia. The excess tissue is removed from the labia minora and self-dissolving sutures which dissolve within a week are used. Labiaplasty will produce a scar around two inches long, depending on the amount of tissue removed.
Most patients return to work in three to five days. Sexual activity can resume in up to six weeks, depending on the level of surgery.
What is ThermiVa?
Thermi-Va is a non-invasive, painless vaginal rejuvenation method for women who want to rejuvenate their vaginal tissues and muscles without going under the knife for a surgical labiaplasty procedure. Thermi-Va also improves leaky bladder and leaves the vagina tighter and with increased moisture. Results are typically seen after a single treatment.
How does ThermiVa work?
After the procedure, which takes between 40-50 minutes the tissues around the vagina are noticeably smaller and softer, resulting in a tighter and younger looking appearance. These changes will continue to improve for several weeks following the treatment. In time, the vagina becomes tighter and patients often report increased sexual satisfaction. Some patients who have experienced difficulty reaching orgasm in the past now report the ability to do so; and in less time than ever before.
How long do the results last?
The changes of the external tissues can last 6-12 months, and single touch up treatments are recommended at those intervals. The tightening of the internal tissues can last 12 months.
ThermiVa can be used for:
Vaginal Looseness: the treatments will tighten the vertical length of the vagina, increasing sensation for you and your spouse.
“I have now finished all three of the ThermiVa treatments and I’m still in awe of the results I gotten.”
“I can’t believe all this has happened to me without the need for surgery and with treatments that were comfortable,felt actually good, and were totally relaxing.”
