There are several factors that can cause vaginal dryness, vaginal looseness, stress incontinence, and a decrease in sexual sensation. Some of the most common factors are pregnancy, childbirth, genetic factors, aging, and menopause. Thankfully, Dr. James Nachbar of Scottsdale Plastic Surgery is able to treat the effects of these factors with ThermiVa nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation.
ThermiVa utilizes radiofrequency energy to help tighten vaginal tissue and treat vaginal laxity. It also is able to stimulate the production of collagen and treat functional difficulties, such as stress incontinence. As a safe and effective treatment, ThermiVa can improve the elasticity and strength of vaginal tissue without the downtime of a surgical procedure. It is an ideal option for women wanting to restore both the aesthetic appearance and functionality of the vaginal area.

"I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Nachbar and his staff. Since his staff were my first and last points of contact, I'll start with them. They were incredibly friendly and helpful. I flew in from out of state for tattoo excision. From the initial contact to walking out the door following my surgical follow-up the day after the procedure, they were kind, polite and accommodating. The smiles and kindness don't feel put on or forced -- his staff seem to be genuinely happy, nice people. Dr. Nachbar was very polite and extremely good at what he did. He gave me a great explanation of what he would do and he was able to exceed my expectations. I had minimal post-surgical pain -- I have actually managed my pain with OTC pain relievers, although he did give me a prescription. Dr. Nachbar was very respectful and treated his staff in a respectful fashion as well. I was very happy with the treatment I received and I highly recommend Dr. Nachbar. I legitimately wish I had known of him and seen him first for excision tattoo removal before spending $2K on laser treatments that had no measurable affect."- E.J. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018
"It's been 7yrs and my surgery results are still amazing. I get a text from Dr. Nachbar's office every year checking in with me. I can't recommend them highly enough. After my experience there my friend also went in and had a procedure and is extremely happy with her results as well."- D.A. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018
"Tummy Tuck - The overall care, skill and follow up by Dr. Nachbar and his staff were outstanding. The same can be said about Greenbaum Surgery Center who did an excellent job.My surgery was done in the morning approx 8:30 a.m and by 5:00 pm I felt very confident that the final result will be great. Dr. Nachbar visited me that night which was very comforting. He's compassionate and highly skillful at his profession."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Sep 06, 2018
"Breast Implant Revision - Dr. Nachbar and his staff were so professional, patient, and put me at ease. I spoke to his staff regarding their surgeries with Dr. Nachbar and I was so impressed. Dr. Nachbar gave me all the time I needed and was so thorough that I had no doubt he was going to be my surgeon, despite the heavy expense. I felt I was in the best hands in the world."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Aug 29, 2018
The best candidate for ThermiVa is a patient with one or more of the several problems that ThermiVa can treat. Women generally notice reduction in vaginal laxity, improvement in vaginal lubrication and moisture, reduction or elimination of mild to moderate stress incontinence (urine that may seep out when you laugh or cough), and improvement in sensation.
Generally, there is improvement with the first treatment, but a total of three treatments, about a month apart, is recommended for most patients. However, sometime women will "stretch out" those first three treatments, depending on how much improvement occurs with each treatment.
The effect of the ThermiVa is long lasting but not permanent, and therefore a single repeat treatment is recommended every six months to one year after the initial series.
ThermiVa works best with problems that are not too severe. In particular, more severe stress incontinence may require other treatments.
While the appearance of the external lips ("labia majora") improves with treatment, the appearance of the inner lips ("labia minora") generally does not show visible changes from ThermiVa. However, labia minora can be improved significantly with surgical labiaplasty, if desired.
The skin and vaginal tissue temperature increase is modest and not uncomfortable, and not hot enough to actually do any damage. The effect of ThermiVa seems to be related to the radiofrequency energy that passes through the tissue from the probe.
Performed as an in-office procedure, each ThermiVa treatment takes about 30 minutes. No anesthesia is needed, and most women merely feel the warmth of the treatment.
For the actual procedure, the ThermiVa wand is first positioned over the external tissue of the vagina and then is gently inserted into the internal area. Each area is treated for a specific length of time.
The wand has a built-in thermometer to control the temperature to ensure the safety of your tissue. The wand itself is smaller than the diameter of a finger.
Following the treatment, there is no downtime, and patients may resume sex the very same day as treatment.
What to Expect
Patients typically see improvement from the first ThermiVa fairly quickly after treatment, but maximal results occur after the third treatment.
You should expect to have repeat maintenance treatments every six months ot a year after the initial treatment, but can have an additional treatment any time you notice the results wearing off.
