Viveve (Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation)
Once you reach a certain age, every day seems to bring a new change in your body – both in terms of appearance and function. Some of the most prevalent issues are the decrease in moisture and increase in sagging skin on your face – but have you given any thought to how those same changes affect the delicate tissues of your vagina? The effects of the aging process, hormone fluctuations and childbirth on the muscles and skin of your vagina can leave you dealing with problems such as dryness, vaginal laxity and reduced sexual sensation. At Umansky Medical Center for Plastic Surgery, our nurses are proud to offer Viveve, a device that provides the only available non-invasive, single session treatment option used to resolve several issues associated with vaginal changes. Viveve is an excellent choice for women who are looking for a quick, effective nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure designed to improve symptoms of vaginal laxity, loss of sexual sensation or urinary incontinence.
What is Viveve?
The skin and muscles found in your vagina naturally weaken and lose elasticity as you age, which can be a frustrating thing to deal with. Symptoms of vaginal aging can lead to a number of problems for women that often disrupt their daily lives and activities, as well as adversely affecting their intimate relationships. Signs of aging tissues in the vagina may include:
- Burning, itching or other pain or discomfort
- Diminished lubrication
- Loss of sexual function
- Laxity or atrophy of vaginal tissues
- Reduced sexual desire and arousal
- Difficulty or inability to reach climax
- Urinary leakage or incontinence
- Stress urinary incontinence or overactive bladder
- Weakened, stretched or thinning vaginal tissue
Viveve is a breakthrough non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment that can greatly improve the lives of women and their significant other. The Viveve device provides noticeable tightening in the vaginal canal, offering increased tightness and pleasure during sexual intimacy, better bladder control, and more youthful vaginal tissue overall.
How Does Viveve Work?
Viveve uses safe, clinically-proven cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) to gently and uniformly deliver volumetric heating to targeted areas of the vagina, while simultaneously cooling delicate vaginal mucosal tissue. This unique technology works to stimulate the body’s natural rejuvenation process, giving the soft tissue of the vagina a more youthful tone and increased resilience.
The radiofrequency (RF) technology used in the Viveve device utilizes an integrated contact cooling mechanism to safely and effectively treat conditions associated with vaginal aging. Viveve has been clinically proven to:
- Improve vaginal laxity
- Increase vaginal lubrication, thereby reducing painful intercourse
- Improve symptoms of stress or urge incontinence and overactive bladder
- Increase vaginal sensitivity and improve intimacy
- Increase the quality and intensity of sexual climax
Your Viveve treatment requires only one 40-minute session for exceptional results, and the targeted RF energy has the ability to penetrate deeper than any other vaginal rejuvenation technology currently available, which means you can enjoy longer-lasting, more sustainable results.
Recovery and Results
Unlike other medical devices that use RF energy pulses to boost the production of vaginal collagen and elastin, the more advanced and effective Viveve treatment requires only one session, performed right in our office. Most women can return to normal activity immediately following your Viveve session, as the treatment involves no downtime and includes zero side effects. It is typically recommended that you wait 48 hours after your treatment before engaging in sexual intercourse to allow the treated tissue to start healing and to begin the rejuvenating collagen restoration process.
Viveve is a safe and comfortable treatment, with noticeable results experienced very quickly after your treatment. Proven clinical studies substantiate the results of Viveve, and the 98% patient satisfaction rate speaks for itself. Most women are able to feel some improvement within just a few weeks, with a more noticeable increase in tightness and sensitivity, as well as a reduction in or elimination of stress incontinence within about six to nine weeks. Your vagina will continue to age naturally, but the Viveve treatment is designed to last for at least a year, if not longer.
If the problems associated with vaginal tissue changes are causing issues in your daily life and intimate relationship, it may be time to discover what Viveve can do for you. Call Umansky Medical Center for Plastic Surgery today at 858-550-9697 to schedule a consultation.
