What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal Rejuvenation refers to the treatment of a variety of physical changes affecting the vaginal canal, vaginal wall, or pelvic floor. These changes most commonly occur following a vaginal birth or menopause.
How Does Vaginal Rejuvenation Work?
Vaginal Rejuvenation with the Viveve system combines radiofrequency heating combined with surface cooling to stimulate collagen production deep in the vaginal wall. This causes the vagina to regain firmness, elasticity, and lubrication.
Am I A Good Candidate For Vaginal Rejuvenation?
If you have any of the following symptoms, you are a good candidate for vaginal rejuvenation:
- Urinary stress incontinence
- Reduced sensation during intercourse
- Pain during intercourse
- Stretching or damage to the vagina by childbirth or aging
How Long Does A Typical Treatment Take?
A single treatment lasts approximately 30 minutes. There is no pain associated with this treatment and many patients report feeling a heating and cooling sensation during the treatment. There is typically no downtime associated with vaginal rejuvenation, but patients are advised to refrain from sexual intercourse for 48 hours following the treatment. Some patients require more than one treatment to achieve optimal results, but your physician will create an individualized plan with you to best suit your needs.
What Results Will I See?
Vaginal Rejuvenation treatments will last up to a year and the patient will see the following results of their vaginal rejuvenation sessions:
- Improvement in the tone of overstretched vaginal wall tissues
- Increased vaginal lubrication
- Reduction in painful intercourse
- Improved bladder leakage from stress incontinence
- Increased sensitivity during intercourse
- Increased quality/intensity of climax during intercourse
Is There Any Downtime?
There is no pain associated with this treatment. Patients report feeling a heating and cooling sensation during the treatment and may be given a soothing gel to use for a few days following the treatment. There is typically no downtime associated with vaginal rejuvenation, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after their treatment. Patients are advised, however, to refrain from sexual intercourse for 48 hours following the treatment.
