Vaginal Rejuvenation

The Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York ® is now providing vaginal rejuvenation utilizing non-invasive radiofrequency (THERMIva®) performed by board-certified gynecologist, Helen Hsieh, M.D. Dr. Hsieh has extensive experience with the THERMIva® device and performs this procedure routinely in an outpatient setting.

THERMIva® is a relatively painless procedure requiring no anesthesia or downtime following treatment. This treatment is beneficial for vaginal (internal) tightening, vulvar/labial (external) tightening, decreased dryness, reduced incontinence or leakage accidents, and increased sexual satisfaction.

How does ThermiVa Work?

THERMIva uses radiofrequency energy to deliver gentle heating to the vaginal tissue. As the tissue constricts, the vaginal canal becomes firmer and dryness is reversed. The treatment also affects the muscles in the treatment area, to reduce incontinence in some patients. As laxity and dryness are addressed, women also find intercourse becomes more comfortable and enjoyable in many cases. 

Does Vaginal Rejuvenation Hurt?

Vaginal rejuvenation using the THERMIva device is very comfortable for our patients. the procedure does not require any anesthesia beforehand. Patients will experience a gentle sensation of heat as the treatment progresses, but do not find the treatment to be painful in any way. Patients can also return to their regular activities as soon as their sessions has ended. 

When Will I See Results?

Some patients notice an improvement immediately following their first treatment session. However, full results become evident about two weeks afterward. Patients usually achieve the best results with a series of 3 treatments, spaced about 1 month apart.

How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?

There are no side effects or downtime after a THERMIva treatment session. You can return to all your regular activities immediately following the procedure.
