Is There a Nonsurgical Option for Vaginal Rejuvenation?

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


Age, menopause, childbirth, and other life events can wreak havoc on a woman’s sexual and/or urinary function, leading to discomfort, embarrassment, and more. Until recently, vaginal rejuvenation surgery was one of the only options for restoring better vaginal function, though it had its drawbacks in certain cases. For instance, surgical vaginal rejuvenation often did little to improve a woman’s sexual sensations, and some patients found the procedure and recovery to be less convenient than desired. For women looking for a less invasive alternative to vaginal rejuvenation surgery, Orange County board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi and the expert team at SSK Plastic Surgery are proud to offer a selection of cutting-edge nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments, including Cliovana™ and ThermiVa®. Keep reading for a closer look at the benefits of these two exciting procedures, and find out which one may be the most appropriate option for you.

Is vaginal rejuvenation right for me?

Both surgical and nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation procedures can be highly beneficial for women with a wide variety of concerns and complaints related to their sexual function, sexual satisfaction, urinary control, and other aspects of their intimate health. Some of the most common concerns that lead women to consider either surgical or nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation include:

  • Unhappy with appearance of vagina/labia
  • Vagina has become loose over time
  • Stretched out vagina
  • Urinary incontinence (leaking urine)
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Pain with intercourse
  • Decreased sexual sensitivity
  • Weak orgasms

Do I need surgical or nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation?

There are a number of factors to consider when determining whether vaginal rejuvenation surgery or nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation is right for you, including the nature and severity of your symptoms, your available downtime, your personal preferences, and others. During your initial consultation for vaginal rejuvenation in Newport Beach, CA, Dr. Kelishadi will thoroughly assess all of these factors and recommend the most appropriate course of action for you. For women who qualify for nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation, Cliovana and ThermiVa are widely popular and successful treatment options.

What’s the difference between Cliovana and ThermiVa?

Both Cliovana and ThermiVa can provide rapid, noticeable, and long-lasting relief from a number of symptoms, though certain aspects of the treatments may make one or the other a more fitting option.

  • Cliovana: delivers sound waves to the clitoris, perineum, and other structures to enhance blood flow and tissue regeneration, resulting in increased sexual sensations, stronger orgasms, and other intimate improvements.

  • ThermiVa: utilizes controlled radiofrequency energy to trigger cell regeneration, boost collagen production, and improve circulation for firmer tissues, better vaginal lubrication, improved urinary control, and more.

Generally speaking, Cliovana is most appropriate for women whose primary concerns are related to sexual sensations and orgasms, while ThermiVa may be best suited to patients who struggle with urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, and an overall poor sexual experience. In some cases, patients may benefit from a combination of vaginal rejuvenation therapies as recommended by Dr. Kelishadi.

With no discomfort, no anesthesia required, no downtime, and rapid results, both ThermiVa and Cliovana nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation therapies can give patients the confidence and satisfaction they deserve more conveniently than ever before.
