arm lift (brachioplasty)


DO YOU HAVE EXCESSIVE ARM SKIN? ARE YOU RELUCTANT TO WEAR SLEEVELESS ATTIRE OR TO EXPOSE YOUR ARMS WHEN THE LIGHTS ARE ON, ESPECIALLY DURING THE SUMMER SEASON? If the answer is yes, it means you have a common condition called flabby arms.
 
Current obesity or recent weight loss are the most common causes of flabby arms. After losing significant amounts of weight, the overlying skin from the arms does not retract adequately due to obesity related stretching forces. This, in combination with hormonal changes after the third decade of life, originates that saggy look under the arms that we all hate. The surgical correction of this deformity is called arm lift or brachioplasty.

Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center performs minimally invasive arm lift surgery which is made possible through liposuction. This reduces the amount of dissection required in conventional surgery. It is called liposuction assisted mini-brachioplasty and liposuction assisted full brachioplasty. Mini-brachioplasty is performed through a small incision in the armpit that pulls the skin under the arm. The postoperative pain is minimal and the recovery period is short. Full brachioplasty is performed through an incision in the arm from the elbow to the chest. Although it seems to be a long incision, it is hidden under the arm. Postoperative recovery time is longer, but you are able to perform routine activities. Flabby arms are not a reward after losing so much weight, but beautiful arms after brachioplasty are worth it.
 
Arm Lift — Cosmetic Surgery in Frisco, TX
 
 

who are good candidates for minimal incision arm lift?

Healthy patients who have unattractive fat accumulation and moderate saggy skin in their arms, are excellent
candidates.
 

why liposuction is added to the procedure?

Because modern liposuction techniques allow surgeons to perform minimal invasive dissection to mobilize extensive amounts of tissue.
 

when can i return to routine activities?

The recovery time or down time is less than one week. Patients can raise the arms to comb their hair or to reach up to the shoulder level in one week. Full extension with the arm way above the shoulder can be accomplished after 5 to 6 weeks. Meanwhile, patients are encouraged to perform partial range of motion exercises to avoid functional limitations of the shoulder.
 

belly button repair (umbilicoplasty)


ARE YOU UNHAPPY ABOUT THE APPEARANCE OF YOUR BELLY BUTTON? DOES YOUR BELLY BUTTON BOTHER YOU WHEN WEARING YOUR SWIMSUIT OR SHORT TOPS AND LOW CUT JEANS MAKE YOU SELF-CONSCIOUS? There is a belly button reshaping procedure that can be tailored to the specific needs of each patient.
Belly button repair surgery is also known as an umbilicoplasty and can be performed on its own or at the same time as a tummy tuck or other cosmetic surgery procedure. This surgery can change the shape or size of your belly button. Belly button surgery can be performed under local anesthesia. Most patients are able to return to normal activity soon after surgery, but this depends upon the extensiveness of your surgery.

Patients can return to work or their daily activities the same day as surgery. The results of surgery are typically permanent as long as a patient does not gain a significant amount of weight or becomes pregnant following surgery.
 

which condition can be treated with belly button repair surgery?

Conditions that can be treated consist of the following:

  • To create a more youthful looking stomach area
  • Reverse the changes to the belly button caused by weight gain, age or pregnancy
  • Turn an “outtie belly button” into an “innie belly button”
  • Skin damage or scar formation from a bellybutton piercing
  • Bellybutton hernias that cause excessive bulging of the area around the umbilicous
 

who are good candidates for a belly button repair or umbilicoplasty?

The ideal candidate for a belly button repair is a person who is unhappy with the size, shape and appearance of their belly button due to normal ageing, pregnancy, weight gain or loss, surgery or any other trauma. You should be in otherwise good health and have realistic expectations.
 

corrective liposuction


DO YOU HAVE LOCALIZED FATTY ACCUMULATION ANYWHERE IN YOUR BODY THAT RESISTS DISAPPEARING DESPITE DIET AND EXERCISE? If yes, consider liposuction, the best treatment available today.
Fat extraction to enhance the shape and contour of the body is one of the most common cosmetic surgical procedures performed worldwide. Since the early 1980's, fat extraction or liposuction has undergone several advances making it safer, more efficient and more affordable. Safety has become the landmark standard of surgical care today. Liposuction has a proven record of safety; only when it is performed according to strict surgical principles applied to patient selection, pre/post procedure care and operative technique. Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center adheres to the highest standard of cosmetic surgical care today. In order to further increase optimal results in the context of safety, we introduce the latest liposuction advances in the United States: Body-Jet® Lipo or Aqua Lipo and Vibroliposuction or Tickle Lipo; both performed under local anesthesia.

Because of the non-traumatic and minimal invasiveness of these techniques, meaningful fat extraction under general anesthesia is no longer necessary. Furthermore, Body-Jet® Lipo and Vibroliposuction emulsify fat without destruction of surrounding tissues providing an excellent background for skin tightening. Emulsification is the breakdown of large fat globules into smaller uniformly distributed particles. These particles are simultaneous and gently aspirated, allowing surgeons to carry out the operation quickly and efficiently. Thus, our patients achieve high levels of satisfaction immediately after their surgery has been completed. “I had VASER liposuction with good results three years ago, but wanted further improvement of the muscle definition in my abdomen. Then, I underwent Body-Jet liposuction 3 months ago obtaining dramatic results at all levels: skin tightening, muscle definition, better appearance, less pain, less bruising and more rapid return to work and to the gym”, said K.S. from Dallas, Texas.

Our patients undergo their advanced liposuction surgery under local anesthesia and through tiny incisions. A physiologic solution is combined with a local anesthetic and injected under the skin to be mixed with the subcutaneous fat. The body is then sculpted by removing unwanted fat from deep and superficial compartments. Our systems ensure rapid recovery and smooth contouring with fewer risks and side effects than conventional liposuction. Body-Jet® Lipo and Vibroliposuction frequently spare the patient from undertaking more aggressive surgery such as conventional liposuction and tummy tuck. Furthermore, these techniques are so precise that they can be applied to delicate areas such as inner thighs, arms, neck, and chin. This advanced technology provides minimal down time allowing our patients to return to work in less than one week, sometimes in two or three days after surgery. “The procedure exceeded my expectations by far; within days, I looked like I did in high school,” said patient M.M. from Plano, Texas.
 

Who are good candidates for liposuction?

Healthy men and women younger than 70 years of age, who have unattractive fat accumulation in specific areas of the body, are excellent candidates for liposuction/liposculpture.
 

which conditions can be treated with liposuction?

Middle age women regularly accumulate subcutaneous fat in their abdomen, flanks and back, losing their hourglass appearance, regardless of strict dieting and aggressive exercise. Through Body-Jet® Lipo and Vibroliposuction, our surgeons are able to not only reach these areas for fat extraction, but also to tighten the corresponding skin, restoring the youthful feminine shape.

Young women, although frequently have great bodies, sometimes suffer from unsightly fat accumulation in their lower abdomen, love handles and hips (muffin top). Despite not being obese, these beautiful women hide their bodies due to the small rolls that sometimes show over their jeans and belts. Liposuction is the best proven method to eliminate this fat. Also, women who have excessive fat accumulation in their outer thighs (saddle bags) and inner thighs, carry an abnormal lower body contour that gives them an overweight appearance. Liposuction of the outer thighs, when performed properly, provides natural and smooth contour lines that help restore the hourglass shape of the female body.

Male liposuction is more frequently performed than once thought. Men, who have achieved good results from extensive work outs, sometimes maintain resilient adipose tissue in localized areas of the abdomen and flanks. They often request liposuction or liposculpture to further improve their physique. Due to the thickness and quality of their skin, fit men commonly achieve great liposculpture results.

Abundant fat tissue in the male breast gives a feminine appearance to their chest. This medical condition known as gynecomastia needs prompt consideration. Liposuction successfully corrects this condition restoring not only a natural masculine look, but also in many patients, reinstating their confidence.

Men and women with abnormal fat accumulation in their neck, known as double chin, undergo liposuction procedures to optimize the contour of the jaw and neck giving patients a youthful slender look.

Finally, patients who previously attained sub-optimal results after tummy tuck and various liposuction procedures carried out in other facilities, greatly benefit from the application of these technologies to further improve their outcomes. We frequently perform post tummy-tuck and post conventional liposuction corrective procedures achieving dramatic results. Medilaser has a well established program to assist patients from other states and countries.

In summary, any healthy patient who has unsightly fat accumulation is a good candidate for liposuction surgery. At Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center we are committed to providing high quality services with no complications. Historically, our patients have not needed to undergo continuous cardiac or respiratory monitoring, intravenous fluid replacement, intravenous antibiotic therapy, blood transfusions, reversion of sedatives and narcotics or exploratory surgery.
 

fat transfer


HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT OF FAT BEING REMOVED FROM ONE AREA OF THE BODY AND BEING TRANSFERRED TO ANOTHER IN ORDER TO ENHANCE THE CONTOUR OF YOUR BODY? If so, you will be pleasantly surprised. It is called the fat transfer procedure.

 
Fat or adipose tissue harvested from specific areas of the body, can be preserved safely and re-injected in other areas such as breasts, buttocks, face and hands in order to re-create their most natural aesthetic shape and restore a youthful appearance. Fat transfer is done using a local anesthetic and mild sedation. A small surgical instrument known as a cannula is inserted into the area of fat removal.
 
Fat Transfer — Liposuction in Frisco, TX
 
The cannula is attached to a vacuum source, which provides gentle suction to remove the emulsified fat. Modern techniques of liposuction target fat cells leaving behind a normal collagen matrix. Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center introduced Body-Jet® Liposuction. This amazing technique uses pressurized water or water jet to obtain fat tissue sparing not only that remaining matrix but also the integrity of the graft adipose and stem cells. This concept renders enough cell survival that there is no need to enhance the graft with PRP (platelet rich plasma) or stem cell isolation and enrichment. As with other techniques such as vibroliposuction, fat is emulsified while simultaneously extracted. After being processed through a LipoCollector® 3 device, this fat is then ready to be grafted or transplanted.

Fat transfer is not new; it has been performed for decades. However, its results were suboptimal due to the poor graft survival in the past. This has changed considerably with the advent of modern liposuction techniques. Water assisted liposuction, ultrasound liposuction, power assisted liposuction and vibroliposuction are the most recently developed techniques responsible for the current success of fat transfer today. Medilaser surgeons, Drs. Robinson and Giraldo, were the first surgeons in the United States to perform liposuction using vibrating cannulas. They taught surgeons from different parts of the country this new minimal invasive technique. Today, many patients have successful procedures with long lasting transplants that give them younger looks. In order to maximize the integrity of fat cells for transplantation, Medilaser adopted Body-Jet® technology as the best way to obtain fat cells today. In an evidence based review article published in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, water assisted liposuction and power assisted cannulas were found to be the best liposuction techniques available today. This translates to exceptional and consistent harvesting procedures for fat transfer.

natural breast augmentation (fat transfer to the breast)

 
This method of breast augmentation uses autologous fat grafting to enhance volume and the appearance. Fat or adipose tissue harvested from specific areas of the body, can be preserved safely and re-injected in the breast in order to re-create their most natural aesthetic shape and restore a youthful appearance. This is very much regarded in cosmetic surgery. This technique is gaining popularity among patients who want liposuction of other areas such as abdomen or thighs, in addition to an enhanced breast. Also, natural breast augmentation can be used to correct deformities, ripples or asymmetry caused with artificial implants, especially when applied above the muscle. Whether it is the drop of the breast from having children, the loss of volume from losing weight, or just the need for some firmness and natural shape with a size increase, fat transfer can help.

brazilian butt lift (buttocks sculpting and fat transfer)

 
Brazilian Butt Lift is a highly successful cosmetic surgery that sculpts the mid-section of the body in three dimensions. This is followed by autologous fat transfer or fat grafting to the buttocks which not only provides this region with more volume but produces a significant lift. This delicate maneuver restores the youthful look of the lower body. Frequently, this procedure achieves results beyond expectations and especially for those who have tried intense workouts to achieve more defined buttocks and thighs. Fat grafting is accomplished through tiny incisions or puncture-incisions that leave virtually no scars.

hand fat transfer rejuvenation

 
The dorsal aspect of the hand is one of the areas of the body that show the most volume reduction due to fat loss. This phenomenon reflects an aging hand that frequently causes aesthetic concerns. Autologous fat grafting of this region is easy and highly successful. This procedure is performed through one or two puncture incisions that leave no residual scars. The grafted fat blends with other structures of the dorsal hand such as veins and tendons restoring its youthful appearance. As with fat transfer to the face and other areas, the overlying skin texture improves due to biologic activity of the transplanted cells.

laser hair removal


ARE YOU A WOMAN OR MAN ON THE GO, TRYING TO JUGGLE YOUR CAREERS AND FAMILY? Hair removal may be an answer to some of your time restraints.
Men, as well as woman, can have excess hair on their bodies. Often as they mature, they find undesirable excessive hair growth on certain parts of their body. Laser Hair Removal has become the most popular method and the best solution for permanent hair reduction with no more bumps, stubble or irritation to worry about.

Concentrated pulses of light or laser loosen the hair and disable the cells responsible for growth. Various cooling methods keep the light pulses or laser mild and skin-safe, allowing for more comfortable treatments than electrolysis or waxing. Small areas, such as the underarms or upper lip, can be treated in less than 10 minutes, while larger areas can be treated in under half an hour. Hair can be reduced from virtually any area on the body.
 

Who are good candidates For Laser Hair Removal?

Any person older than eighteen years of age with unwanted hair, that is not gray, in areas of the body other than scalp and brow.
 

Liposculpture


HAVE YOU DONE ALL THE RIGHT THINGS BUT STILL SEEM TO BE OUT OF PROPORTION AND UNABLE TO IMPACT STUBBORN FAT POCKETS? Like many people, you may have excess fat that is resistant to exercise and diet.
Liposuction, once a highly invasive technique only for the most severe situations, has progressed significantly over the past couple of decades into what is now known as Body-Sculpting or Liposculpture.
 

What is liposculpture?

The body-sculpting that Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center specializes in combining and incorporating the best and safest aspects of North American and European medical and surgical approaches to body-sculpting, permanent fat removal and fat transfer. It is an advanced approach, which provides optimal safety, patient comfort, ease and speed of recovery, enhanced body contouring and aesthetically pleasing results. Tumescent liposuction combined with fat transfer permanently changes key areas of the body shape, proportions and curvatures without trauma or substantial downtime for the patient.

In addition, Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center uses an innovative post-op protocol to further improve aesthetic results by utilizing state of the art instruments for skin tightening, cellulite removal and finer contouring.

neck rejuvenation


DOES YOUR NECK MAKE YOU LOOK OLDER? There is a way to correct this problem without invasive surgery under general anesthesia.
 
We have great news regarding neck rejuvenation. We no longer need extensive surgical procedures to correct mild to moderate neck contour abnormalities that occur as a consequence of the aging process. At Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center, we have multiple technologies that alone or in combination provide similar outcomes to invasive surgery under general anesthesia. These procedures range from non-invasive and non-surgical minimally invasive technologies to minimally invasive surgery under local anesthesia.

neck rejuvenation procedures we offer

non-invasive rejuvenation

For patients who are not interested in surgery, our center offers non-invasive options such as laser and radiofrequency skin tightening. The former is performed with the best laser equipment today, Sciton laser technology. This is a versatile machine that provides multiple wave lengths that target different problems of the aging skin and subcutaneous tissue under the jaw. BBL Skin Tyte tightens the skin without causing tissue damage and with minimal downtime. It requires an initial set of four sessions with three to four weeks in between. For skin texture correction and further tightening, our center also offers Sciton profractional laser and full field MicroLaserPeel therapy. These are ablative laser technique that provide great skin rejuvenation with minimal downtime.

minimally invasive non-surgical technology

Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center is proud to announce the introduction of ThermiRF in 2014. This amazing technique delivers radiofrequency energy right where it is needed under the skin in order to cause tissue tightening. Using local anesthesia alone, small cannulas or needles are positioned under the skin which are connected to a thermal energy generator, stimulating the tissue contraction required to reshape the jawline and neck. Thus, very specific and small areas of skin laxity can be easily treated. ThermiRF is considered the "in between" approach to treat patients who are not ready for invasive surgery but want a minimally invasive approach to treat their skin laxity. By virtue of using small needles to deliver energy under the skin, ThermiRF is sometimes referred to as injectable radiofrequency tissue tightening.

minimally invasive surgery of the neck

Two effective procedures that can be used to improve the contour of the jaw and neck are liposuction and neck silhouette lift. Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center uses water assisted liposuction technology that removes subcutaneous neck fat (double chin), while simultaneously tightening the skin. Occasionally, the neck fascia needs to be stitched. If this is required, it can be done during the same operative time as liposuction. This is done under local anesthesia without the risks of general anesthesia and prolonged recovery time. There is another minimally invasive surgical procedure which is also performed under local anesthesia, the Silhouette Neck Lift. It simply consists of traditional suture material that has been safely used for orthopedic and opthomalmogic surgery for a long time. It has knots surrounded by small absorbable cones that engage loose tissue before being pulled, correcting the skin sagginess present in the neck region. This procedure is ideal for patients with turkey necks or, in combination with liposuction, for patients with double chin and loose skin.

skin tightening


DO YOU HAVE AN AREAS OF SKIN SAGGINESS ON YOUR FACE, NECK, ARMS, ABDOMEN OR KNEES? If you do, there are various invasive and non-invasive solutions.
 
Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center offers heat based energy technology to tighten and firm sagging skin of different areas of the body, mainly face, neck, abdomen, arms and knees. Energy based skin tightening procedures are performed under topical or local anesthesia, without surgical incisions and with minimal downtime.

non-surgical skin tightening procedures we offer

 
Skin Tyte
 
 

minimally invasive skin tightening: injectable radiofrequency or thermirf™

ThermiRF is an energy based device that delivers heat under the skin to cause immediate collagen contraction and triggers wound healing that thightens skin andsubcutaneous tissue. It is a minimally invasive technique allows physicians to cause natural contouring of the face, neck and body without surgery. ThermiRFdevice is currently being used for treatment of cellulite to smooth out lumps after liposuction, reduce excessive underarm sweating, tighten loose vaginal skin, reduce double chins, and most commonly, for reduction of wrinkles and loose skin in the lower face and neck. The difference between ThermiRF and previous noninvasive radiofrequency tightening devices is that it deploys the actual energy directly to the fibers under the skin that need to be contracted, sparing the heat sensitive surface of the skin.

Skin tightening occurs when the deep dermal skin reaches a temperature of 47°C or higher. Then, the body senses this as an injury and the healing response is triggered. An intense production of collagen helps generate new collagen resulting in firmer, tighter, more elastic skin. The deep skin and fat layer can tolerate over 50°C without incurring visible burns. The surface skin can only tolerate about 42°C.

ThermiRF has a tiny probe that is introduced underneath the skin through a needle hole. The tip of the probe has an electrode that emits tiny bursts of radio frequency energy. The probe has a temperature gauge that allows monitoring of the exact temperature that is being reached at the target. In addition, the The rmiRF system utilizes a state of the art thermal camera to continuously monitor the temperature at the surface of the skin. This treatment allows the doctor to safely bring the temperature of the deep skin to the optimal level for skin tightening.
 

non-invasive skin tightening: sciton skin tyte™

Skin Tyte is a non-invasive technique that utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue while protecting the skin surface with sapphire contact cooling. Targeted subcutaneous heating causes soft tissue coagulation and collagen contraction. This process initiates the body's natural healing process, resulting in a firmer more youthful skin appearance. The full effect of skin firming treatments can be seen over several subsequent months. In order to increase safety, Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center uses additional state of the art infrared technology to monitor target surfaces. This enables Skin Tyte to be manipulated to increase relevant heat to higher levels in the subcutaneous space. Since there is no downtime, patients may resume their regular activities immediately following treatment. Skin Tyteoffers fast, safe and effective treatments of the face including jowls and around the eyes, neck, hands and abdomen tailored for all skin types without complications.
 

tummy tuck & liposuction


ARE YOU UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THE SHAPE OF YOUR ABDOMEN AND PRESENCE OF EXCESSIVE SKIN, SCARS AND STRETCH MARKS? If so, the proposed treatment is less invasive than you ever thought. At Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center, we perform the least invasive tummy tuck procedure available today.
 
More than 100,000 tummy tuck procedures are performed in the United States every year. As with any other surgical procedure, tummy tuck or abdominoplasty has evolved dramatically in recent times. The concept of minimal invasiveness can be applied to a type of tummy tuck that is performed under local tumescent anesthesia, minimal dissection, no drains and reduced complication rates. This procedure is performed in combination with liposuction to provide effective fat reduction without scalpel dissection and to sculpt the lateral abdomen and lateral back in order to restore, sometimes create, the hourglass shape of the young female body. Regular tummy tuck procedures flatten the abdomen only, creating a lateral distortion of the natural abdominal geometry.
 
Tummy Tuck — Liposuction in Frisco, TX
 
 

who are good candidates for a tummy tuck using current minimally invasive techniques?

Healthy, non-smoking individuals who have abnormal abdominal fat accumulation in combination with flaccid or damaged skin are good candidates. Women of child-bearing age who are not planning to get pregnant in the foreseable future and women with lower abdominal stretch marks and unsightly surgical scars are also considered good candidates for the above procedure.
 

vaginal rejuvenation


DOES EXTRA SKIN IN YOUR VAGINAL AREA AFFECT YOUR INTIMACY? If so, at Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center, we have the techniques necessary to help you in that area.
 
Currently, women are more aware of their bodies than ever before. Modern females groom their bodies to reveal the beautiful appearance of their skin. They are confidently exposing previously hidden areas such as back of the neck, arm pit and genital region. This has been possible because of the development of laser hair reduction technology which, in fact, is one of the most commonly performed non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the United States every year. The advent of this technology has brought a new concern among females these days: the appearance of genitalia that were previously covered by their pubic hair. In addition, women are subjected to significant pressure due to the internet which has created a “new standard of attractiveness” today.

However, there is not really a standard of appearance and size of women’s external genitalia today. “Enlarged” labia minora (inner vaginal lips) and labia majora (outer vaginal lips) are not uncommon. They usually do not harm the woman, but eventually they cause cosmetic concerns and discomfort with undergarments or during intercourse. Several factors including genetics, age and childbirth can contribute for women to develop laxity and extra skin surrounding their vagina.

vaginal rejuvenation procedures we offer

labiaplasty

There is a treatment for the extra skin around the vagina or labia minora redundancy. It is an office based procedure called Labiapllasty and is performed under local anesthesia with mild oral sedation. During Labiaplasty surgery, the doctor will trim labial tissue to make it smaller and balanced, yet still natural-looking.

Patients are often surprised with how little discomfort there is with this procedure and return to work 2-4 days after surgery. After the procedure, patients may experience soreness for 3-4 days. During the first month post-surgery, patients must be very gentle with the tissue because of the small, dissolvable sutures used. Patients will be prescribed antibiotic ointment to apply to the labia and should refrain from sexual activity and strenuous exercise for 6 weeks. Although all surgeries create scars, the scars after Labiaplasty are virtually invisible.

who is a good candidate for labiaplasty?

A good candidate for cosmetic rejuvenation of the vagina is a healthy woman who desires a fine-looking and comfortable genital region. She should have realistic expectations, be in good overall health and not be pregnant or nursing. Common conditions corrected with Labiaplasty:
  • Thinned out skin
  • Poorly shaped skin
  • Too large labia minora or protrusion
  • Uncomfortable genital region with and without clothing
  • Painful intercourse
  • Uneven labia
  • Difficult hygiene

what are the benefits of labiaplasty?

  • Boost self confidence
  • Improve vaginal appearance
  • Eliminate pain during intercourse
  • Reduce discomfort of rubbing undergarments

thermiVa®

ThermiVa is a non-surgical procedure used for women to restore feminine wellness. Pregnancy and vaginal delivery can lead to trauma and stretching of the vaginal wall, which can result in the loss of vaginal tightness. With age, hormonal changes or radiation treatment for cancer, some women may notice a loss of vaginal lubrication, resulting in painful intercourse. ThermiVa applications deliver temperature controlled radiofrequency energy to gently heat tissue to tighten the labia and internal vaginal anatomy. Recent scientific publications indicate the benefits of heat delivered by radiofrequency in the vulvo-vaginal region such as vaginal tightening, reduction of urinary incontinence, enhancement of sexual function, increase of vaginal moisture and reduction of anorgasmia. These improvements are thought to be the result of enhanced blood flow.

This minimally invasive procedure is typically well tolerated and requires no anesthesia. ThermiVa doesn't cause trauma to the vagina or surrounded skin, so there is minimal to no tenderness and no downtime. Results are almost immediate with improvement continuing after each treatment. It is recommend undergoing a series of three ThermiVa sessions set approximately one month apart to achieve the added effect of each treatment for your best results. Yearly treatments may be needed to maintain long-lasting benefits.

who is a good candidate for ThermiVa?

A good candidate for ThermiVa is a healthy adult woman who wants to recover the tightness in their vaginal tissues.
