What is Vaginal Rejuvenation or Feminine Rejuvenation?
Just like everywhere else on your body, the tissues of the vagina are subject to aging. Pregnancy and vaginal delivery can cause trauma and stretching to the vagina. Hormonal changes can also cause laxity and loss of lubrication. It is usually a combination of these factors that leads to negative changes in the female genitalia.
Women can experience a loss of vaginal tightness, also known as vaginal laxity. This can lead to diminished sensation during intercourse and decreased sexual satisfaction. This can even lead to relationship problems. Another common problem is loss of vaginal lubrication or dryness. This can also cause painful intercourse and decreased satisfaction.
Aging can also occur on the labia, outside of the vagina. These tissues can have too much laxity and/or too little volume. The appearance of the labia can negatively affect a woman’s self-esteem and sexuality.

"4.4lbs breast reduction & lift - look & feel so much better! - Dr Hix has great knowledge and true gifting in her field. She performed a breast reduction lift. I had a large reduction removing 4.4 pds of breast total! I now have relief from neck, back, head from the weight I was carrying around. I look and feel so much better! Dr Hix has a no nonsense way and i had confidence in her skills which led to amazing results for me. Life changing for me. Thank you Dr Hix and your team!"- P. / RealSelf / Jul 16, 2022
"As a mother of four children I seldom do anything for myself. The youngest is 16 and I decided I wanted to get a little something done. I went in to discuss breast options and I was super shy. I wasn’t even able to talk about it to begin with but within just a few minutes Dusty was able to easily make me feel just fine. They talked me through every step, were honest about healing, and all my options. Dr. Hix was the most amazing doctor who showed concern and care not only for me but also my daughter who we just mentioned briefly. Completely professional and still welcoming and caring. I would recommend this group for any cosmetic procedure, lift, tuck, and spa treatments offered. You will not be disappointed."- L.T. / Yelp / Jun 26, 2022
"If you’re planning on getting lip filler, I have one word for you: VANESSA. She is a true artist and is so passionate about what she does. I saw her for my first time getting lip filler a few years ago (amazing) then sadly moved to CA. I didn’t find any injectors there that even came close to how amazing her work is, so I literally made a trip back to Austin just to get it done by her again and she did not disappoint! I will not see anyone else for filler from now on because of the two great experiences I’ve had with her at Beleza Spa! I feel so much more confident and seen, highly recommend."- S.P. / Google / Jun 20, 2022
The Vaginal Rejuvenation or Feminine Rejuvenation Process.
There are several methods for the vaginal rejuvenation process. Popular surgical procedures include vaginal rejuvenation surgery including labiaplasty and vaginoplasty. Both of these procedures require anesthesia and involve removing excess tissue and suturing. There can be some postoperative discomfort and 1-2 weeks of downtime is common.
Recently, nonsurgical laser vaginal rejuvenation procedures have become more popular. These procedures involve the use of laser or radiofrequency (RF) energy. Both laser and RF work by heating the tissues of the vagina. This leads to collagen stimulation and eventual skin tightening. Unlike surgery, there is no need for anesthesia and there is no downtime.
Non-surgical (Laser) versus Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
The non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation process is not meant to replace surgery. Surgery is best for those women with significant laxity. Surgery has a high satisfaction rate but does require anesthesia, has a risk of complications, has downtime, and is more expensive. Celebrity Farrah Abraham just televised her labiaplasty procedure to get a “Designer Vagina“.
The nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation procedures are best for women with mild to moderate laxity. They offer significantly reduced price and downtime, as well as being less risky and not requiring anesthesia. Nonsurgical procedures will not last as long and may require annual treatments.
What is the ThermiVa Rejuvenation Procedure?
The Thermiva rejuvenation procedure uses a specially designed handpiece for the ThermiRF platform. ThermiVa works by administering RF energy to both the inner vaginal canal and the external labial tissue. The tissue is gently heated in a controlled fashion, stimulating the growth of new collagen, increasing blood flow, and improving nerve supply. ThermiVa is FDA approved for skin tightening, however, patients also report increased sensation, moisture, and improvement in symptoms of stress urinary incontinence.
The ThermiVA Rejuvenation Procedure takes approximately 30 minutes and is performed in the office. It has no downtime. The typical protocol for ThermiVa treatments is three treatments, spaced four weeks apart. Many women will see improvement in vaginal tightening after the first treatment, but optimal results will be observed several months after the third treatment.
Differences between ThermiVa and Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
Vaginal rejuvenation processes like Femilift and Monalisa Touch utilize lasers to heat the tissues. ThermiVA uses RF energy instead. RF energy penetrates deeper into the tissues than lasers and can produce more tightening. Unlike lasers, ThermiVA can be used on the external labia to improve their appearance.
Can ThermiVa help Urinary Incontinence or Leaky Bladder?
The same laxity of the vaginal tissues that causes sexual problems, can also produce urinary incontinence, specifically stress incontinence. ThermiVA is not designed to treat leaky bladder. However, some patients have seen improvement in their symptoms after a ThermiVA treatment.
Vaginal Rejuvenation Cost
The average cost of the ThermiVA rejuvenation procedure is $2700. The average cost of a surgical labiaplasty is $4000 and $5500 for a vaginoplasty. The ThermiVA procedure can replace both of these surgeries. The ThermiVA vaginal rejuvenation procedure can be included in a Mommy Makeover to save even more money.
