Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedures
Over the years, a woman’s body undergoes many changes. Age, pregnancy, genetics, and other factors all influence not only appearance and function, but also a woman’s own relationship with her body. Sometimes, these changes are not always favorable.
There are few subjects more sensitive than our most private parts. However, women can experience a myriad of issues with their genitalia over the course of their lives:
- Vulvovaginal dryness
- Mild to moderate urinary incontinence
- Orgasmic or sexual dissatisfaction
- Vaginal laxity
- Low libido
Thankfully, vaginal rejuvenation procedures exist to address all of these issues. Premier Plastic Surgery provides several procedures that represent the latest and greatest medical innovations in the field of feminine rejuvenation. With these kind of treatments, women may have some questions and concerns – understandably so. Of course, we are happy to answer all of them.
The vaginal rejuvenation procedures we offer are both non-invasive, outpatient procedures that achieve quick results. The treatments involve minimal discomfort and recovery time. For feminine rejuvenation in Pittsburgh, PA, Allegheny County, and beyond, look no further than Premier Plastic Surgery.
ThermiVa technology utilizes radio frequencies to address vulvovaginal issues that many women come to face in their lifetimes. The completely non-surgical treatment effectively treats vaginal relaxation syndrome, vaginal atrophy, and urinary incontinence through a short series of outpatient appointments.
During the treatment, a technician uses the device to gently apply thermal energy to the affected areas. As a result, the vulvovaginal tissues heal, contract, and produce more elastin and collagen. After treatment, women and their partners generally experience greater sexual satisfaction as the vaginal walls and labia grow smoother. Additionally, the procedure helps to promote natural lubrication.
Typically, complete ThermiVa services consist of three separate sessions over three months. Results can be experienced as soon as the first treatment and last for 9 to 12 months after the treatment ends. Then, once or twice a year, an additional maintenance session can be undertaken to preserve results.
Who is a Good Candidate for ThermiVa?
If you are a woman who has had children and are closing in on menopause, seeking a tighter vagina and/or labia, or looking to improve your overall aesthetic down there, you are perfect for our ThermiVa services. Those who also suffer from the below are also ideal candidates for this procedure:
- Vaginal dryness
- Frequent infections
- Sexual displeasure
What is the Treatment Process?
The treatment process lasts about 30 minutes, wherein radio frequencies are used to heat the tissue within the internal vaginal canal and outside labia to certain temperatures. This stimulates new collagen to naturally tighten tissue without any pain or discomfort. It may take a couple visits to achieve your ideal results.
Is there any Downtime?
There is no downtime, and patients are able to return to their normal activities the very same day, as ThermiVa requires no surgery or anesthesia.
Does the ThermiVa Procedure Hurt?
No pain, scarring, burns, or blistering has been recorded from ThermiVa; however, there has been rare occasions where the vaginal opening became too tight. Patients have also reported no discomfort during the procedure.

Lotus Gynolaser Treatment
Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Brian Heil also offers the Lotus GynoLaser treatment as part of his menu of vaginal rejuvenation services at two locations in Pittsburgh and Wexford, PA. The treatment addresses the same vulvovaginal issues as ThermiVa through a slightly different method. Instead of radio frequencies, Lotus GynoLaser uses gentle laser energies to stimulate vulvovaginal tissue, restoring bladder control and increasing collagen and elastin production.
This treatment, which is generally applied three times over the course of six weeks, achieves quick results through even quicker procedures. Lotus GynoLaser therapy takes only five minutes to apply per session. The laser uses a fractional C02 laser system that, up until now, was primarily used for facial rejuvenation.
After these sessions, patients experience an astonishing new growth and restoration of vulvovaginal cells and tissues, allowing them to get their young and sexy self back, unlock self-confidence, and restore their feminine wellness! Lubrication and mucosal elasticity can noticeably increase after even one treatment. Just as with ThermiVa, additional maintenance sessions are recommended once a year after treatment is complete.
Who is a Good Candidate for the Lotus GynoLaser?
While a patient consultation will ultimately determine if this treatment is a good fit, the Lotus GynoLaser is generally an excellent option for women who might experience any of the following:
- Vaginal laxity (or looseness)
- Vaginal dryness
- Stress urinary incontinence
- Itching or discomfort
- Pain during sex
What is the Treatment Process?
Every woman’s body is unique and requires a personalized approach based on specific concerns. Dr. Heil will provide each of his Pittsburgh and Wexford, PA patients a personalized consultation to ensure they are receiving a treatment plan that will get them the results they desire.
During your treatment, the physician will insert a dilator into the vagina. A handpiece within the dilator will then release pulses of light within the canal of the vagina. The modern technology and precision guiding system of the Lotus GynoLaser allow for the handpiece to rotate and move within the canal as it is carefully pulled out, ensuring a safe experience and comprehensive results.
Is there any Downtime?
The great aspect of this treatment is that there is virtually no downtime required. Most patients return to work or normal activities following the laser treatment. However, it is normal for patients to experience some light bleeding or discharge in the area of the microlaser pulses, as well as mild cramping immediately following the procedure. These symptoms usually subside in 24 to 48 hours. We recommend that patients use a light pad during this time as an added precaution as well as abstaining from intercourse for 2-3 days following.
Does the Lotus GynoLaser Procedure Hurt?
While some patients may experience mild discomfort when the handpiece is initially inserted, the actual rejuvenation treatment is not painful and requires no anesthesia. Many patients report feeling a gentle vibration sensation during the laser treatment.
