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.
"I've been on my mommy makeover journey for quite some time now. But I am over joyed to have finally found the perfect doctor and staff. The Beleza Medspa/Surgery staff and Dr.Hernandez are very welcoming and informative.They are not just after your money they actually care about you and what’s best for you! The way they walked me through every process and answered all the questions I had(and I had a lot of them). I recently had my surgery this past Monday, and I cannot wait to see my final results. Thank you to everyone at the Beleza Medspa/Surgery for making this such a smooth process for me."- S.S. / Google / Apr 27, 2021

"My experience here was excellent. I did my research before deciding where to go for my Botox and filler and ended up choosing Beleza because of their extensively documented processes on their website as well as their very professional social media presence and high ratings on Yelp. They really did not disappoint. Booking ProcessThey were super easy to get ahold of and worked with me and my packed schedule to get me an appointment. It had to be rescheduled on my behalf once and then I ended up calling again because my work schedule allowed for my original appointment time again and they were so understanding on the phone and let me take my original date/time.OfficeThe office is well maintained and very clean and I was greeted warmly right away by Elena, after I filled out my paperwork I was greeted by Nancy. Treatment Nancy took me back and was very thorough during our consult. I am new to Botox/fillers and she has been in esthetics for 24 years so she had a ton of knowledge but what was even better was that she was that she responded to all my questions with care and kindness. I got filler in my cheeks and a bit in my undereye trough, Botox in my 11’s and then a little Botox around the mouth. She explained every step of the way and made me feel very at ease even though I’m not a big fan of needles. Overall my experience here was amazing and I will continue to return for more services with their lovely and knowledgable staff!"- S.M. / Yelp / Jan 22, 2021
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.
