Here's Why More Women are Opting for ThermiVa® Vaginal Rejuvenation

By: Dr. Sean Kelishadi, M.D. FACS


Factors like age and hormone changes affect your sexual health and wellness in many ways. Vaginal dryness, discomfort during intercourse, and even urinary incontinence can be a source of extreme embarrassment or insecurity in women.

If you experience these issues, know that you're not alone, and comprehensive solutions are available. SSK Plastic Surgery provides nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation in the form of ThermiVa. Here's what you need to know about this life-changing system in Newport Beach, CA, and why more women are seeking help from board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi.

What causes sexual health issues?

Age, stress, hormone changes, weight fluctuations, and gravity all weaken our muscles and skin elasticity over time. These problems are more pronounced in women due to life events, like pregnancy and childbirth. Exterior and interior muscles and tissues weaken, drop, dry out, and become less responsive over time. This causes uncomfortable and embarrassing issues, such as:

  • Vaginal dryness

  • Lack of lubrication

  • Urinary incontinence

  • Lack of arousal

  • Painful intercourse

How does ThermiVa help?

Some women turn to vaginal rejuvenation surgery to help with issues like loss of skin elasticity, but surgery is not always necessary and can lead to long recovery times. Others turn or hormone-based treatments, but these also come with risks and side effects. It can be frustrating to find a solution when your sexual health continues to decline.

Dr. Kelishadi recommends ThermiVa to patients who are not interested in surgery or hormone therapy. This minimally invasive treatment uses temperature-controlled radiofrequency energy to heat the vaginal tissues gently. This encourages new collagen production and improves blood flow.

ThermiVa is known to increase vaginal lubrication, enhance arousal, and improve sexual intimacy and satisfaction. Our treatment in Newport Beach can also control urinary incontinence brought on by coughing or sneezing. Patients at SSK Plastic Surgery report a significant improvement in symptoms and an improved overall quality of life with their partners.

Am I a candidate for ThermiVa?

Most women are candidates for ThermiVa since it does not involve surgery, but it is important to meet with a qualified specialist, like Dr. Kelishadi, before undergoing treatment. Our team will ask about your symptoms and sexual health history to determine if a radiofrequency-based procedure is right for you. Please inform our trained staff if you have any active infections or skin conditions that must be addressed first.

What are the benefits of ThermiVa?

ThermiVa is a comfortable treatment that takes about 30 minutes without incisions, needles, or general anesthesia. You can even resume normal activities, including intimacy with a partner, after your appointment with Dr. Kelishadi. We usually recommend a series of three ThermiVa sessions to achieve the most successful results. Yearly touch-ups will ensure your results last long-term.
