For many women, feeling their best involves feeling confident about their most intimate area. Loose skin, dryness and irritation in the vaginal area are not only physically uncomfortable but embarrassing as well. Dr. Robert Young is sensitive and compassionate to the physical and emotional discomfort women feel due to these issues. The trusted San Antonio plastic surgeon offers ThermiVa, a non-surgical procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to gently and effectively heat tissue on the internal and external vaginal and labial areas for a firmer and tighter appearance. With ThermiVa, thousands of women worldwide have felt restored confidence in their bodies.
If you are self-conscious about your most intimate area, Dr. Young encourages you to schedule a consultation with his MedSpa team and learn more about ThermiVa.
Can You Benefit from ThermiVa?
Lax vaginal tissues and weakened muscles can occur as a result of natural childbirth, the natural aging process or genetics. This in turn can produce physical and emotional discomfort that makes everyday life difficult for women. Loose, sagging skin may rub against clothing, leading to painful chafing or irritation. Some women may avoid certain physical activities such as running and bicycling. Sexual intercourse may also be painful and undesirable.
It is not uncommon for women with unusually shaped labias to be embarrassed or self-conscious about their appearance, some so much that they avoid wearing bikini bottoms or other form-fitting clothing. They may also become withdrawn or experience low self-confidence, depression or anxiety.
If you experience any of these symptoms, you may be an ideal candidate for ThermiVa. By tightening the tissues and muscles, the vaginal skin and tissues appear firmer and rejuvenated. Many women report feeling a boost in self-confidence after treatment because they are no longer embarrassed about the appearance of their labia. Their feelings of anxiety or depression resolve, and their wardrobe options expand. The procedure also reduces physical discomfort caused by the labial skin rubbing against clothing. Many women feel comfortable enough to exercise, ride a bike or play sports. Thanks to the effects of ThermiVa, women often experience a boost in libido. Physically, sexual intercourse becomes more enjoyable and pleasurable, while psychologically, it becomes more desirable.
You may also benefit from ThermiVa if you experience urinary incontinence or vaginal dryness that makes physical activity and sexual intercourse uncomfortable.

How Does ThermiVa Work?
ThermiVa is a quick in-office procedure that typically takes 30 minutes to complete. It is completely painless and does not require pre-medications or anesthesia. During treatment, a single-use, soft and slender probe will be used to massage the labia majora and labia minora, and in the vagina. The probe will deliver radiofrequency energy, which increases blood flow in the area to stimulate collagen. This is turn tightens and firms the vaginal skin and muscles, as well as increases lubrication.
There is no downtime with ThermiVa; patients can resume physical and sexual activity immediately after treatment. Minor side effects include swelling, redness and discomfort, but these should subside within a few days after treatment.
While the effects of ThermiVa will be visible after one treatment, most patients need three treatments spaced one month apart to achieve the best results.
