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 is amazing! She took her time to consult with me regarding my goals. She then offered options to accomplish them. Her work is sheer perfection. I have visited other facilities in the area and have never been so impressed. This is by far the best. The entire team is friendly and professional."- A.D. / Yellowpages / Jun 07, 2017

"Dr. Armando has been very attentive before and after the surgeries. I am very pleased with my results and recommend him to anyone who is looking to get plastic surgery done in the future. He has done an amazing job with my body and my pain level has been very minimal as well as the recovery process. I was looking for the right doctor to do my work that I wanted to get done, and I am glad I chose Dr. Soto and trusted in him to give me the results I was looking for. If I were to rate Dr. Armando I would rate him a 10/10 for the amazing work he did for me!"- M.M. / Yellowpages / Jun 04, 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@headingTag>
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.

Thermi RF System?@headingTag>
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?@headingTag>
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?@headingTag>
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.
