San Francisco board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Leonard Gray, is happy to offer the latest in vaginal tightening— without surgery! ThermiVa is a noninvasive vaginal rejuvenation treatment that tightens the labia as well as the vaginal canal. ThermiVa not only improves the aesthetic appearance, but patients experience improved sexual satisfaction for themselves and their partners. It can even help with urinary incontinence as well as lack of lubrication that many women experience after having children or with aging.
Treatments are done in the office, last about 20 – 30 minutes, and are painless. Women will expect to feel a warming sensation from the small hand piece during their treatment, similar to the feeling of a warm stone massage. There is no downtime associated with this procedure so women can return to regular activities immediately! Treatments are packaged in a series of 3, typically spaced a month apart. Some women experience immediate tightening, but full results are typically seen about a month after the series of treatments.
"This was a great, professional experience - Dr. Gray was very knowledgeable and thorough when we came in for the consultation. He explained all of the different breast implant types and what they would look like depending on what was the desired outcome. Great bedside manner an he gave great advice, made us feel very comfortable and we love the results."- A. / RealSelf / Apr 08, 2017
"I was referred to Dr. Leonard Gray by a friend who has had work done and he was the second I went to see for consultation. I booked my surgery day a few days after that day. I'm so glad that I find Dr. Leonard practice! I absolutely love his staff. They are extremely nice, patient and helpful! I'm so thankful and satisfied with his work."- S.Z. / Yelp / Mar 21, 2017
"AMAZING!! Dr. Gray and staff are the best! I had a revision breast augmentation that required the best surgeon to repair. Dr. Gray is that surgeon. The results have exceeded my expectations. Not one bruise...proof that Dr. Gray is meticulous during surgery. The staff is very caring and accommodating, I could not have asked for more. Thank you for taking such great care of me."- D.M. / Yelp / Mar 18, 2017
"INCREDIBLE DOCTOR AND STAFF! Highly recommended! - Incredible. AMAZING. I cannot say enough good things about this doctor. I wrote a review about my procedure (and am in the process of finishing it, since I am only 6 days post-op), so I won't be repetitive here. But I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Gray and his staff! I had a breast implant removal. His bedside manner was incredible, I felt like i knew these people forever. The RN's are wonderful and so sweet, and the anesthesiologist is out of this world. I would honestly do my procedure ALL OVER AGAIN! :)"- S. / RealSelf / Feb 26, 2017
"575 Cc Sientra Moderate Profile - Dr. Gray came highly recommended to me by a work colleague. I ended up making an appointment with him and knew he was going to be the doctor for me. He was extremely patient, knowledgeable, and no pressure. After he explained the procedure to me and answered all my questions, I got to try on various implant sizes. He carries Allergan, Mentor, and Sientra. He never made me feel rushed while trying on the different implants and never pushed me in any particular direction. It was important to him that I liked what I saw in the mirror. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Gray and his staff."- S. / RealSelf / Feb 13, 2017
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@headingTag>
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.

Thermi RF System?@headingTag>
The ThermiRF Skin Tightening System is a base system for radio frequency 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?@headingTag>
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?@headingTag>
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.
