Restore your comfort and desire without surgery
The patented, cryogen-cooled RF device we use for vaginal rejuvenation rebuilds natural collagen to improve the structural integrity of the vagina. It also supports the healthy function of the urethra.
The Viveve system is designed to treat women who are experiencing mild urinary incontinence, sexual dysfunction, and vaginal laxity whether it’s from age or due to hormonal changes. Studies have shown sustained results for 12 months.
In clinical studies, women reported significant improvement in vaginal laxity as well as sexual satisfaction. Patients also reported improvements in arousal, lubrication, and even orgasms.
What is vaginal rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is a broad term for many vaginal corrective treatments. While these treatments can be done for cosmetic reasons, typically women are seeking relief from age or childbirth-related problems. While women can opt for surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedures, there are newer, advanced nonsurgical methods that produce results without the need for surgery!
Surgical vaginal rejuvenation
Surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedures tend to be either vaginoplasty, labiaplasty, or vulvoplasty.
For reference, the vulva is the entire outer portion of the female genitals. The labia are the lips surrounding the entrance to the vagina, and the vagina is the inside of the female genitals.
Vaginoplasty procedures involve tightening of the vagina itself. Labiaplasty reshapes the labia; generally it’s a reduction of the labia minora (inner lips), which can become twisted in one’s underwear, become painful during intercourse, or look prominent in yoga pants or bathing suits. This is performed by removing excess tissue and shaping it in proportion with the other structures. Finally, vulvoplasty is the reshaping of the entire outer portion of the genitals, either by surgical removal or by liposuction.
What are the benefits of nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation?
More and more women are turning to nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation because it can improve so many aspects of their lives! We have the tools and procedures to revitalize your femininity without cutting, stitching, scarring, or other risks associated with surgery!
Improve urinary incontinence
The loss of bladder control is a very common problem among women, especially those who have given birth. More than 15 million adult women in the US struggle with urinary incontinence, or the involuntary leaking of urine from the bladder. A loss of muscle elasticity in the vaginal muscles can create a situation where even the slightest pressure on the bladder can lead to mild or moderate urine leakage.
Causes of persistent urinary incontinence
There are many underlying physical problems and changes that can lead to persistent urinary incontinence. Some of those include:
Changes in hormones and the weight of the baby lead to stress incontinence.
One of the major contributors to stress incontinence among women is childbirth. Vaginal delivery weakens muscles used for bladder control; it can also damage bladder nerves and support tissue in the area which can lead to a prolapsed pelvic floor. A prolapse can lead to the bladder, uterus, rectum, or small intestine pushing into the vagina, which is often associated with incontinence.
Bladder muscles age and the bladder can lose its ability to store urine. Involuntary bladder contractions also become more common as people age.
Women produce less estrogen after menopause, and estrogen helps keep the bladder and urethra healthy and functional. These tissues begin to deteriorate after menopause which can increase incontinence.
Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation with Viveve is an excellent option to improve the symptoms of mild urinary incontinence!
Eliminate vaginal dryness
When the thin layer of moisture that naturally coats the walls of the vagina begins to go away, it can cause a lot of discomfort. Vaginal dryness can lead to:
- Less interest in sex
- Painful sex
- Bleeding after sex
- Recurring urinary tract infections
The most common cause of vaginal dryness is simply the lower estrogen levels that come with aging. However, there are many other factors that can lead to vaginal dryness in women of any age. Those include:
- Cigarette smoking
- High stress levels
- Breastfeeding and childbirth
- Certain immune system disorders
- Certain medications
By improving the natural lubrication of the vagina, your daily life and sex life can become much more comfortable and enjoyable!
Tighten vaginal walls
The RF Viveve device stimulates collagen production and also increases the “tightness” of the vagina.
How does radiofrequency vaginal rejuvenation work?
We get a lot of questions about how radiofrequency waves can help improve vaginal health. While the technology we use is advanced, it’s a fairly straightforward process! Radiofrequency waves are used to create an electrical field within the tissue. This generates a safe heat through molecular motion and, at specific temperatures, the RF energy induces fibroblasts that produce collagen.
Collagen is the fountain of youth. It is a major component of connective tissues in many parts of the body. Collagen is what provides your skin with structure, which is why a lack of collagen makes skin feel lax and loose.
A large portion of med spa treatments are focused on encouraging the production of collagen and elastin, the structural compounds of the skin that make it firm and healthy. Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation is no different!
The Viveve Treatment is designed to provide the specific heat your body needs to stimulate collagen production, while remaining cool enough that you stay comfortable throughout your treatment. This cooling portion of the procedure also encourages the heat gradient deeper into the skin, which is where we want to focus the energy.
Who can get vaginal rejuvenation?
You are a great candidate for nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation if you are interested in addressing vaginal concerns or appearance, but you are not interested in undergoing surgery. Anyone who wants to strengthen their vaginal canal, improve urinary control, increase natural moisture and lubrication, decrease sexual discomfort, and enhance sexual arousal and climax can benefit!
Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation also provides dramatic results with no downtime. Most patients can return to their daily activities immediately following treatment!
Women with a pacemaker or an automatic implantable cardioverter/defibrillator are not considered good candidates for Viveve. Women who are currently pregnant are also not considered candidates for Viveve; we recommend waiting three months after birth before starting treatments.
What to expect from the vaginal rejuvenation procedure
Because our method of feminine rejuvenation is nonsurgical, it means you can expect to be done with your treatment within an hour and then back to your day! We perform the treatment in our office, and it usually takes around 30 minutes to an hour. You won’t need any anesthesia because the Viveve treatment is designed to be as comfortable as possible.
A wand applicator will be maneuvered around the exterior of the labia and vulvar tissues and into the vagina where the RF energy will stimulate collagen production. The handheld applicator we use is designed to fit comfortably within the vagina, where it delivers RF waves that penetrate at a depth of 3-5mm. This will tighten the muscles as well as the submucosal tissue.
Does nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation require multiple procedures?
Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation in Santa Rosa has the benefit of no downtime or surgery risks, and generally only takes one treatment to feel results. Sometimes it takes an annual follow-up treatment to maintain those results. It’s an effective, low-risk way to manage your vaginal dryness and improve mild symptoms of incontinence!
