The vagina can change both externally and internally for a number of reasons, including aging, childbirth, and menopause. While vaginal rejuvenation surgery has been available for years, prolonged recovery time and the potential for complications can discourage some women from pursuing treatment. At Total Dermatology we strive to deliver the best non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation Irvine has to offer. ThermiVa offers a non-surgical, non-laser option for feminine rejuvenation, with benefits that can expand beyond just aesthetic improvement.

Reasons for seeking out treatment with ThermiVa is personal and will vary by patient. Whether you are interested in regaining confidence in your favorite pair of yoga pants, stopping the “trickle” when you laugh, sneeze or cough, or improving intimacy with your partner, ThermiVa may be able to help.
ThermiVa utilizes controlled radiofrequency, the same thermal energy that has been harnessed for over a decade for non-surgical face and body rejuvenation (Other radiofrequency treatments you may be familiar with are Thermage, eMatrix, Pelleve, and Intensif).
ThermiVa works by stimulating blood circulation and collagen production to increase tissue strength, elasticity, and thickness.
Candidates for ThermiVa should have a record of:
***In preparation for your appointment, the area to be treated should be shaved or closely trimmed. Shaving should be done the day before your scheduled treatment; hair laser or waxing at least a week before.
***A pregnancy test will be administered in-office immediately before each ThermiVa treatment. If you are menstruating, treatment is not contraindicated, however, you may want to plan your treatments around your cycle for your own comfort.
Our ThermiVa-certified Registered Nurses will perform the treatment and take care of you all the way through.
Thermi’s temperature controlled RF system is indicated in the US, Brazil, and China for use in dermatological and general surgical procedures for electrocoagulation and hemostatis. In Europe for electrocoagulation of soft tissues for vulvovaginal laxity.
As the options for cosmetic procedures expand like never before, the topic of rejuvenation has moved beyond just the patient’s face. Once a taboo topic, now the conversation of vaginal rejuvenation exists openly within doctor’s offices, girlfriends’ brunch hour, and even pop culture.
Although our Irvine vaginal rejuvenation patients will experience improvements from a single initial treatment, for best results – proven with thousands of patients – a series of three ThermiVa treatments are recommended, with treatments performed monthly. Once the series is complete, results can last up to a year. In order to maintain desired results, patients are encouraged to return for treatment at least once every 3-6 months.

Treatment is performed by one of our fully-trained Registered Nurses. Rest assured your entire treatment experience is done with the utmost of privacy and sensitivity in the singular attendance of our female nurses assisted by female staff.
During treatment, the wand is gently moved along the external and internal area of the vagina to heat up the tissue. The sterile, disposable ThermiVa wand is no larger than the size of an index finger and is equipped with a small panel on the tip that emits the radiofrequency energy. Treatment is quick and comfortable, with the procedure itself taking no longer than 30 minutes. Our Orange County vaginal rejuvenation patients compare the sensation during treatment to that of a warm massage.
After treatment, you will likely experience minor swelling and/or redness of the treated area, as well as possible cramping and/or spotting. These side effects are generally mild in nature and typically last anywhere from a few hours to a few days. There is no downtime involved; no restrictions on exercise and other regular activities, including sexual intercourse.
