From aging, vaginal childbirth, and genetics, the internal and external tissue of the vagina can become loose, which can decrease sexual sensations and a woman’s confidence. ThermiVa is a nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation system that uses radio frequency (RF) energy to strengthen the vaginal tissue. Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation by ThermiVa can also improve other concerns, including incontinence, vaginal dryness, symptoms of perimenopause, and certain sexual dysfunctions. At Khoobehi and Associates in Metairie and New Orleans, the plastic surgeons use the ThermiRF system with the ThermiVa application to improve the strength and elasticity of the vaginal area.
"I had a breast augmentation done in 2011. The results were amazing!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Feb 11, 2016
"Khoobehi & Associates: 10 of 10 recommend. Exceeds Expectations. Dr. Khoobehi is without a doubt an extremely talented surgeon, and the proof is in the product I received. His eye is precise, and he was very honest and conservative about which services from his menu would be right for me. Every suggestion made by Dr. Khoobehi was dead on. The results of my abdominoplasty, fat transfer, and liposuction are beyond amazing. Dr. Khoobehi’s talent is surrounded by an amazing support staff of nurses, consultants, aestheticians, administrative staff, and others that were extremely helpful throughout my process. My husband and I were more then impressed with the all-inclusive plan provided for my services. There is no stone left unturned and no fiscal surprises after surgery. The surgery booklet answers ALL the questions, even the soft ones that may come through the emotional part of plastic surgery. The post surgery plan ensures the best recovery. It’s amazing how quickly I have been able to get back to the new normal. Thanks to Dr. Khoobehi and his team, my 40 is my new 20!"- AA / Office Visit / Jul 15, 2021
"I am a 65 year old woman who has always dreamed of having bigger breasts. I remember at age 40 I told my mother I wanted them (after being married 2 x and having 3 children) and my mother asked me “how old are you – you went this far, you don’t need that.” Well, I never stopped dreaming of having bigger and better breasts. Fast forward 25 years and after raising those children, caring for elderly family members, watching them die, and all the other caring for others… I decided that if I could lose 15 pounds and get my now post-menopausal body in better shape (flatten that tummy), then I would treat myself to a boob job. I did just that! Dr. Kamran Khoobehi was the doctor I chose as I knew he was the best in his field and I am so happy I did. His office staff are professional, friendly, sensitive, and very caring. Not once did anyone make me feel I was too old for this! Dr. Khoobehi is charming, witty and sensitive. He’s also a fantastic surgeon! He understood what I was looking for – not a Dolly Parton experience, just a full C cup. While I was nervous at first, I knew I could trust him and that’s why I went to him – he IS the best! Surgery went well and my post op experience was uneventful … I never even needed the pain meds at all! Sure it was uncomfortable for a few days, because I was carrying a little heavier bosom, but within a week – I was good to go! I highly recommend Dr. Khoobehi – you will not be sorry. He asked me on the first post op visit… “Ok, now do you love me, or do you hate me or what?” I replied… Oh, I LOVE you! I’m so happy I had this done – one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life – even at my age --- because it was for me and I look great!"- BC / Office Visit / Jul 13, 2021

The treatment wand has a built-in thermometer, which relays the skin temperature to the computer for automatic adjustments to the right level of heat without risking burns. The ThermiVa wand will be passed over the exterior of the vagina and if the internal tissue needs to be treated, the wand will be shallowly inserted into the vagina. After the procedure, patients can resume their normal activities, but should avoid sexual activity for at least 24 hours.
What to Expect
Patients may see some improvement after their treatment, but most patients will need about 3 treatments over a 3-month period to get their best results. After the final treatment, the final results should be noticeable in about 2 weeks. Results typically last for 1 year and then touch-up treatments should be scheduled by the patient to maintain their results.
Plan Your Procedure
Thermi RF System?
The ThermiRF Skin Tightening system is a base system for radiofrequency treatments that uses applications for specific areas, like the ThermiVa for vaginal rejuvenation. The ThermiTight, ThermiSmooth Body, and ThermiSmooth Face are other applications for noninvasive and minimally invasive skin tightening treatments of the face and body.
ThermiVa or Labiaplasty?
The ThermiVa application is best for women who have mild to moderate skin laxity in the vaginal area and who want to avoid the discomfort and downtime of a surgical vaginal lift. A labiaplasty is a surgical removal of the excess skin in the vaginal area for women with more severe skin looseness. ThermiVa is also better for women who are unsure about having more children since it is less expensive, less time consuming, and requires no recovery period.
When to Get ThermiVa?
In order to get longer lasting results, patients are encouraged to wait until they are no longer planning any more children. The ThermiVa treatment will not affect future pregnancies or prevent a vaginal childbirth, but patients will need to wait 2 – 3 months after giving birth to start ThermiVa treatments.
