Vaginal rejuvenation can provide women options to revive and restore intimacy with their partner and return to a more active lifestyle. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
Vaginal rejuvenation procedures have become more openly discussed in the past several years, but many women still suffer silently from vaginal dryness and laxity which can lead to painful intercourse and decreased libido. Many women find that sneezing or coughing at a dinner party or exercising at the gym can lead to embarrassing leaks. Common factors contributing to uro-genital changes include but are not limited to:
- Hormonal changes
- Hereditary factors
- Certain prescription medications or drugs
Vaginal rejuvenation can provide women options to revive and restore intimacy with their partner and return to a more active lifestyle.

ThermiVA (Non-surgical Radiofrequency Vaginal Tightening)
ThermiTight™ is a non-surgical, minimally invasive alternative for skin tightening at Delray Beach Plastic Surgery. Radio frequency energy is used to stimulate collagen production beneath the skin which improves sagging and smooths out texture. During the ThermiTight® treatment, a tiny probe is used to gently heat specific tissues to a pre-determined therapeutic temperature. With ThermiTight, Dr. Westine applies a controlled amount of thermal energy to targeted tissue. The tip of the tiny probe provides constant feedback of the actual temperature during treatment. In addition, an infrared camera is used to monitor skin temperature to ensure that your treatment is both safe and effective. The heat produces inflammation and stimulates fibroblasts and collagen remodeling which results in skin tightening.
What to Expect
ThermiTight™ can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or may be combined with other surgical procedures. The treated area is infused with a local anesthetic solution while the probe delivers the RF energy in order to reach the therapeutic temperature. Treatment time is 30 minutes to one hour depending on the area that is being treated. You may experience mild to moderate swelling or bruising following the procedure. You may also be required to wear a compressive garment, but can resume mild to normal activities in 2-3 days or as tolerated. You will notice skin tightening over the next several weeks as your collagen is remodeling and strengthening, but the most noticeable results will begin to appear within two to three months after your procedure and your full and final results will be visible in six to twelve months.
How many treatments are necessary?
Most patients will complete one treatment. As long as you maintain your current weight through diet and exercise, you will have long-lasting results. Individual results may vary.
Enlarged or asymmetric labia can be a source of discomfort for women of all ages.
Young, active women are most often concerned with their appearance in tight gym clothing or bathing suits. Cyclists, equestrians commonly experience pain and discomfort. This may be a source of embarrassment during intimacy as well. Some females are born with asymmetric labia.
With aging and childbirth, hormonal changes may lead to loss of collagen and fat resulting in sagging and wrinkled tissue. The labia majora (outer labia) may appear deflated or the labia minora (inner labia) may extend beyond the labia majora.
Labioplasty is a surgical procedure to alter the appearance of the labia. Various surgical techniques can decrease the length, remove hyper pigmented tissue and/or improve rugosity (wrinkled edges) of the labia.
Mons pubis and labia majora enhancement/reduction
As women age, fat loss in the mons pubis and labia majora creates a deflated appearance. This can be easily improved with autologous fat grafting or dermal fillers. Fat grafting is a procedure where a patient’s own fat will be used to restore a more youthful, plump appearance to the mons.
Some women may wish to have fat removed from their mons or labia majora. Liposuction is commonly performed to remodel the mons and labia to the desired proportions.
