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.

"Labiaplasty - Truth be told, I have always been fascinated with plastic surgery. I truly believe it you want something done and you believe it will benefit yourself in the long run, I see no problem with finding an answer to your solution. Well truth be told, I found the answer to my solution. Since this was indeed my first procedure and taste of the plastic surgery relm, I had no idea what to expect. I was very pleased with how smooth the entire process was. I loved my doctor, the nurses were fantastic and I had a very easy recovery time. I am so happy with my results, I would recommend this procedure to anyone I deemed up for it. I felt very taken care of with no sense of judgment whatsoever. His office is very clean, beautiful and conveniently located. He is full of knowledge and is not one of those money-hungry surgeons who would just recommend a procedure because he wants to get paid. He is the type of doctor that would not perform a procedure on you if he felt that is was not necessary. I felt very secure with this because I knew I made a wonderful decision picking him as my surgeon. 10/10 would recommend and I will be going back in the future."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Mar 15, 2018
"I cannot say enough to thank Dr. Nachbar and his staff for everything they have done for me. From the time of my first phone call I was treated with respect and valued. I requested multiple appointments before scheduling as new questions came up especially as I had consults with other surgeons who would suggest something different. Dr. Nachbar took his time to explain to me the differences and his opinions on what other surgeons had said. My husband works out of state and they had no issue with me facetiming him during consults. I feel like Dr. Nachbar was very realistic in what I could expect from my surgeries and he definitely delivered on what he said he could do. I never felt like he was pressed for time and I never waited around in the office to see him. He was always very prompt and the one time he was late (due to a major accident blocking all roads to the office) he was very apologetic. His staff was amazing and always made me feel welcome. They never seemed annoyed when I had to bring my kids to an appointment. Overall I have and would recommend him to anyone. I never felt like just another number or paycheck I felt valued and respected which is hard to find in the medical profession these days. Thank you again to Dr. Nachbar and his staff for helping me complete my weight loss transformation."- J.G. / Google / Mar 11, 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.

Restore and Revive
With ThermiVa, there is a simple method for improving the external appearance of the labia majora, as well as vaginal tightness, lubrication, sensation, and stress incontinence, with no downtime.
