What is vaginal rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation is a technique that corrects changes in the vagina due to aging, childbirth and hormonal changes. These treatments can address vaginal laxity, urinary incontinence, dryness and decreased sensation. Most often, sexual rejuvenation treatments use radiofrequency or laser energy to strengthen the vaginal tissue. If you’re seeking vaginal rejuvenation, your next step is a private consultation at one of our offices in NYC or NJ.

What vaginal rejuvenation treatments are available?

At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists in NYC and NJ, we offer only the top vaginal rejuvenation treatments available. We use ThermiVa™ for vaginal rejuvenation in NYC, which uses a special radiofrequency device to tighten loose vaginal tissue. ThermiVa™ is a safe procedure that is carefully controlled throughout treatment and has been shown to provide excellent results.

NYC ThermiVa

What is ThermiVa™?

During menopause, or as part of natural factors prior to menopause, many women can experience a wide range of symptoms, including vaginal dryness, incontinence, and vaginal laxity. While these symptoms are all a natural part of aging or childbirth, they can be uncomfortable and inconvenient. And thanks to advances in medicine and science, they are unnecessary.

There are several invasive procedures available to treat unwanted vaginal symptoms, but most women shy away from surgical interventions. Today there is another option. ThermiVa is the first non-invasive, pain-free treatment for some menopausal symptoms. Through the use of controlled thermal energy, some side effects of aging can be minimized. This treatment may also be used to improve the cosmetic appearance of a patient’s labia.

How does ThermiVA work?

ThermiVa™ is a quick and painless alternative to surgical vaginal rejuvenation that uses a special radiofrequency device to tighten loose vaginal tissue. ThermiVa™ works by carefully monitoring and regulating the temperature that is delivered to the deeper layer of tissue. This treatment method has many positive results, including the stimulation of tissue through contractions, increasing sensation, and the promotion of collagen production.

Typically, patients will require three separate NYC ThermiVa™ treatments, carried out every three to four weeks. Many patients experience some improvement in symptoms after only one treatment. Once the initial course of treatments has ended, patients can have maintenance treatments every 6 to 12 months.

A message from Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ:

Dear Patients,

Our providers and staff recognize that we are all faced with difficult times as this pandemic continues to unfold throughout our area. However, the continuation of your care remains our top priority!

At this time, our New York City office is temporarily closed.

In our effort to provide you with the highest level of service, the Hackensack and Hillsborough NJ offices will remain open until further notice with limited hours of availability. We ask for your understanding with our protocols on hand washing and social distancing when you arrive for your appointment. Please do not come to the office if you are experiencing a cough, fever, shortness of breath, or other symptoms associated with COVID-19.

Should you prefer not to visit the office in person, our providers are now offering virtual office visits. This is commonly known as telemedicine, or in this case, teledermatology. Our dedicated concierge team will assist you in scheduling a virtual appointment with your provider, including those in the New York City office.

Currently, the government mandates that the only way to have these virtual visits is to communicate via FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, or WhatsApp video. This is because your medical providers needs to see you, and you can show the provider the problem area of your body that you are concerned about. You will also be able to discuss any other issues regarding your ongoing care or for any new skin concerns you may have. Your provider may tell you that an in-person visit may be required for testing or more in-depth examination. In that case, a concierge team member will reach out to schedule an in-office visit.

To schedule your in-person or virtual appointment, please call our office at 908-359-8980 or email [email protected] Our concierge team members will schedule a time for your medical provider to call you back. We have set aside times for all of our medical providers to call you for your virtual appointment.

Please be aware that virtual visits must be billed to your medical health insurance just as they would for an in-person office visit. If your insurance has recently changed, please have that information ready to provide to our team members. Depending on your insurance plan, you may have financial obligations such as co-pays, deductibles, and co-insurance just as you would for an in-office visit (at the present time, the government has only waived co-pays related to COVID-19 testing).

We understand that this is a stressful time, but we are here for you!

Stay safe and healthy,

Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ
