What is Vaginal Rejuvenation with Viveve™?
Vaginal rejuvenation is an elected procedure to treat vaginal laxity that results from age, childbirth, genetics or trauma. Vaginal laxity is when the collagen and elastin break down within the vaginal lining and tissue, causing the vaginal opening and canal to become loose and weakened. This can lead to vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence and lack of sexual pleasure. At Laurence Kirwan MD FRCS FACS we use the Viveve™ treatment system to perform vaginal rejuvenation.
Viveve™ uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deep layers of vaginal tissue within the vagina. This helps to stimulate collagen growth, the necessary framework for strong, supportive tissue.
Benefits of Viveve™ Vaginal Rejuvenation
Vaginal rejuvenation with Viveve™ boosts the body’s natural production of collagen, which creates support for the vaginal walls. The Viveve™ system also offers the following benefits:
- Non-surgical, requiring no anesthesia
- Quick and painless procedure
- Only one treatment necessary to achieve excellent results
- No downtime or recovery
The vaginal rejuvenation treatment overall provides benefits including tightening the vaginal tissues, increased vaginal sensation and diminished symptoms of urinary incontinence.
The Viveve™ Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedure
Vaginal rejuvenation is a quick 30-minute procedure that requires no anesthesia. This in-office treatment begins by gently inserting the tip of a handheld device into the vagina. The tip is no bigger than the size of your thumb, so no discomfort is felt. The device is rotated 360 degrees delivering tiny pulses of energy. The radiofrequency energy alternates between heating and cooling, which keeps the surrounding tissue unharmed and the treatment comfortable. The heat that penetrates the vaginal tissue stimulates collagen production, resulting in a tighter and toner vaginal canal.
Viveve™ Vaginal Rejuvenation Recovery Period
There is no recovery needed for vaginal rejuvenation with Viveve™. After your treatment, you can resume your regularly scheduled activities without anyone knowing you had work done. Results usually take about 30 days to become noticeable with optimum results evident after 90 days following your procedure.
What is the Cost of Viveve™?
All procedures are specific to your individual condition and cosmetic goals, so prices do vary. All costs will be discussed during your consultation. We do, however, offer financing to help assist you in paying for your treatment.
