In this article the body rejuvenation experts at ZBody in Naperville, IL answer your Frequently Asked Questions about Viveve® vaginal rejuvenation.
Is vaginal aging a common problem?
Absolutely. It is estimated that up to 40% of women will experience vaginal looseness or “laxity” that causes a decrease in sexual sensation – both for themselves and their partners. And, after menopause it is reported that up to 50% of women will suffer from some vaginal dryness, pain or irritation during intercourse.
Additionally, 1 in 3 women experience bladder leakage when they laugh, sneeze, or exercise – which is often the result of lax muscles and tissue in the pelvic area.
What Causes the Vagina to become Loose or Lax?
Just as skin on the face ages, so does skin in the vagina. Hormonal changes, due to menopause and aging, lead to a loss of collagen production. This causes the vaginal tissue to lose its strength and structure and sag or become “lax”.
Vaginal changes can also be the result of pregnancy, delivery, weight gain, and certain medications. Hysterectomy can also result in the hormone decrease that causes vaginal problems.
What conditions can Viveve® Vaginal Rejuvenation Treat?
Viveve® vaginal rejuvenation can treat many issues including:
- Painful Intercourse
- Vaginal Looseness
- Loss of Sexual Sensation
- Vaginal Dryness and Irritation
- Stress Urinary Incontinence (Bladder Leaks)
- Distended or Wrinkled Labia Tissue
How Does Viveve® Vaginal Rejuvenation Work?
During the Viveve® treatment a slim want is inserted into the vagina to apply targeted radiofrequency (RF) heat to the tissue. This gentle but powerful thermal energy activates production of new collagen fibers in the vaginal tissue. This increase collagen strengthens and thickens the tissues and muscles in the walls of the vagina.
The vaginal walls become thicker and stronger over time as the new collagen is produced – making the vagina feel tighter. This increases sexual sensation for the woman and her partner. The strengthened pelvic walls also help stop embarrassing bladder leaks.
Viveve® also improves blood flow to the vaginal area, which reduces dryness, as well as increases sexual sensation – for increased arousal and more intense orgasms in many women.
Unlike MonaLisa Touch, ThermiVa and other vaginal rejuvenation procedures which require multiple treatments – Viveve® only requires a single treatment in our Naperville, IL office.
Does Viveve® Vaginal Rejuvenation Hurt?
No. There are no incisions or other pain causing aspects of Viveve®. The radiofrequency technology simply emits soothing heat to the vaginal tissue. Viveve® also incorporates a proprietary cooling component to help ensure the procedure is comfortable and painless.
Is there Any Downtime after Viveve® Vaginal Rejuvenation?
No! There is no downtime or recovery period needed after Viveve® vaginal rejuvenation. Patients can return to work, the gym, or their regular activities immediately after treatment. There are no known side-effects after Viveve®, and there should be no changes in vaginal odor or discharge.
Dr. Zelko typically recommends that patients wait 48 hours after Viveve® Vaginal Rejuvenation before engaging in sex or vaginal penetration. This allows the vaginal tissue to effectively commence the collagen restoration process.
When Will I See Results after Viveve® Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Patients typically begin to notice improvement in lubrication, tightness and decreased pain during sex within the first few weeks after Viveve vaginal rejuvenation treatment. As the body’s collagen production continues, patients will see ongoing improvement over time.
Somewhere between the 6th to 12th week after treatment patients typically experience maximum improvement in tightness, lubrication, sexual sensation, comfort during intercourse, and bladder control.
