Vaginal Rejuvenation Q & A

George D. Kovacs, MD

What is vaginal rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation treatments are focused on improving and treating a wide spectrum of vaginal complications, such as:

  • Itching and dryness
  • Vaginal appearance
  • Stress urinary incontinence
  • Vaginal discomfort and pain
  • Loss of collagen and elasticity

Vaginal rejuvenation is an umbrella term for several different procedures that can include surgeries, such as a labiaplasty to remove excess tissue or skin and reshape the labial area, and laser treatments to stimulate collagen.

The George D. Kovacs, MD offers labiaplasty procedures and the ThermiVa® vaginal rejuvenation system. The ThermiVa system is an innovative nonsurgical solution that uses highly effective and precise radiofrequency laser technology.

Why would I choose vaginal rejuvenation?

Impaired vaginal functioning and problems can be caused or worsened by various factors, such as:

  • Menopause
  • Low estrogen production
  • Certain medications
  • Certain medical conditions
  • Childbirth
  • Aging
  • Genetics

Dr. Kovacs will help you to determine if vaginal rejuvenation is right for you during your initial consultation.

How does vaginal rejuvenation work?

Both the vaginal canal and the labial area can be treated with a number of methods.

Laser technology

Effective laser technology is specifically designed to prompt your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin and cell regeneration. Vaginal rejuvenation devices use safe, precise waves of laser energy inside the vaginal canal to stimulate your body’s healing response and the formation of healthier, firmer tissues.

Most vaginal rejuvenation laser treatments are quick and only take around eight to 12 minutes. The sensation is well-tolerated and painless. Dr. Kovacs typically suggests multiple treatment sessions until you achieve your desired results, followed by one treatment each year for maintenance.

Following your laser treatments, you might have mild redness and swelling in the treatment area, but this subsides within a few hours.


A labiaplasty is a cosmetic gynecological surgery to alter the appearance of the labia — the outer and inner folds of the vulva, at either side of the vagina.

What are the benefits of vaginal rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation treatments offer numerous benefits. Many options have little to no downtime and don’t involve surgery. State-of-the-art lasers are gentle, effective, and suitable for treating sensitive areas.

Vaginal rejuvenation treatments can tighten the vaginal canal, lift and plump the labia majora, boost blood flow to the clitoris, and more. Vaginal rejuvenation treatments also have strict safety standards. Many options yield immediate results that can combat uncomfortable vaginal symptoms that inhibit intimacy.
