Countless women visit board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Armando Soto every year to address their internal and external labia tissue if the vaginal lips have become loose or excessively relaxed. At Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery, Dr. Soto uses the ThermiVa system to perform a nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure that strengthens the vaginal muscles and tissue. During this treatment, controlled radio frequency energy is applied to the vaginal region through a hand-held device called. The gentle heat promotes collagen production, strengthens muscles, and improves the overall integrity of the skin. The results lead to tighter labia muscles, which helps to improve symptoms like low libido, vaginal dryness, incontinence, and sexual dysfunction.
"Bridget and Amanda made a super weird and uncomfortable procedure quite easy! I was really nervous, but their calming manner and conversation relaxed me. The Geneveve treatment was completely painless and there was no down time. My significant other thoroughly enjoys the results as well."- K.M. / Yellowpages / Jun 26, 2017

"Dr. Soto and his team went above and beyond my expectations. As an out of town patient, I sought out Dr. Armando Soto's skills and visions. From my initial point of contact till now, I have felt that I have been in amazing hands. Thank you for guiding me through this process and creating a finale look that I feel great in!"- M.R. / Yellowpages / Oct 06, 2017
"My experience with Dr. Soto and his staff has been amazing. At the beginning, i was hesitant about the procedure he was recommending for me since it was different than what I thought I wanted/needed. He reassured me and explain how the results were going to be much better with the procedure and I am so glad I listened to him! My body has never looked this great, not even in my teenage years. After having two pregnancies, including a multiple twin one, I had lost confidence and my self-esteem was lower. Thanks Dr. Soto! Now I feel better than ever!"- D.H. / Yellowpages / Sep 29, 2017
The treatment wand has a built-in thermometer, which relays the skin temperature to the computer for automatic adjustments to the right level of heat without risking burns. The ThermiVa wand will be passed over the exterior of the vagina and if the internal tissue needs to be treated, the wand will be shallowly inserted into the vagina. After the procedure, patients can resume their normal activities, but should avoid sexual activity for at least 24 hours.
What to Expect
Patients may see some improvement after their treatment, but most patients will need about 3 treatments over a 3-month period to get their best results. After the final treatment, the final results should be noticeable in about 2 weeks. Results typically last for 1 year and then touch-up treatments should be scheduled by the patient to maintain their results.
Plan Your Procedure
Thermi RF System?
The ThermiRF Skin Tightening system is a base system for radiofrequency treatments that uses applications for specific areas, like the ThermiVa for vaginal rejuvenation. The ThermiTight, ThermiSmooth Body, and ThermiSmooth Face are other applications for noninvasive and minimally invasive skin tightening treatments of the face and body.
ThermiVa or Labiaplasty?
The ThermiVa application is best for women who have mild to moderate skin laxity in the vaginal area and who want to avoid the discomfort and downtime of a surgical vaginal lift. A labiaplasty is a surgical removal of the excess skin in the vaginal area for women with more severe skin looseness. ThermiVa is also better for women who are unsure about having more children since it is less expensive, less time consuming, and requires no recovery period.
When to Get ThermiVa?
In order to get longer lasting results, patients are encouraged to wait until they are no longer planning any more children. The ThermiVa treatment will not affect future pregnancies or prevent a vaginal childbirth, but patients will need to wait 2 – 3 months after giving birth to start ThermiVa treatments.
