In this article, the women’s sexual health experts at Tutera Medical in Scottsdale, AZ answer patients’ Frequently Asked Questions about state-of-the-art Viveve vaginal tightening and rejuvenation.
What Causes a Loose Vagina?
Pregnancy and childbirth, weight gain or loss, and the hormonal changes of menopause and aging can all contribute to thinning of the tissue in the vagina. Stretching of the walls during delivery can cause them to become thinner and unable to “snap back” – much like a rubber band that has been stretched too far.
The vaginal walls are made of the protein collagen (which provides thickness and tightness) and the protein elastin (which provides elasticity). As a woman ages, hormone production declines and her body produces less collagen and elastin. This can cause the vagina to lose its strength and structure and become “loose” or “lax”.
Up to 40% of women suffer from laxity in the vaginal canal that causes loss of sexual pleasure.
What Causes Urinary Incontinence?
There are actually many different causes of bladder leaks. But one of the most common is a condition called “Stress Urinary Incontinence.” This is a medical condition in which a woman “pees” a little when she coughs, sneezes, laughs, exercises, runs, lifts, or exerts herself.
Stress urinary incontinence occurs when the muscles and tissues around the opening of the bladder become weak over time. When pressure is applied suddenly the bladder opening doesn’t stay closed, and urine leaks occur.
Weight gain, pregnancy, vaginal childbirth, hormone changes and aging can all result in weakening of the muscles and tissues in the pelvic floor.
How Does Viveve Vaginal Rejuvenation Work?
Viveve vaginal rejuvenation applies radiofrequency (RF) heat energy to targeted areas of the vagina using a slender wand. The RF thermal energy stimulates collagen and elastin production. This thickens the tissues in the walls of the vagina, restores elasticity, and improves the strength of the pelvic floor muscles.
As a result, the vagina feels tighter, which increases sexual sensation, reduces pain and dryness, and also helps stop embarrassing bladder leakage.
What is the Viveve Vaginal Tightening & Rejuvenation Treatment Like?
A small wand is inserted inside the vagina to deliver gentle pulses of warm, 100% natural RF energy. It is a painless, non-surgical treatment – so there is no anesthetic needed, no incisions or no stiches, and no scars.
How Many Viveve Vaginal Tightening Treatments Will I Need?
Other vaginal rejuvenation treatments require anesthetic and need three treatments to be effective. But Viveve patients typically only require a single thirty-five to forty-five minute vaginal tightening treatment.
Does Viveve Vaginal Tightening Hurt?
No. Radiofrequency energy penetrates and warms the deeper vaginal tissue, bypassing the top layers where the nerves are. Additionally, the Viveve also includes a proprietary cooling process that ensures the treatment is comfortable and painless.
Is There Downtime After Viveve Vaginal Tightening?
No! There is no downtime after Viveve vaginal rejuvenation. Patients may return to their normal daily activities immediately following your treatment, including working out.
The caring medical providers at Tutera Medical typically recommends that patients do wait 48 hours after Viveve before having any type of vaginal penetration. This allows the vaginal tissue to start the collagen and elastin rebuilding process.
How Soon Will I See Results after my Vaginal Tightening Procedure?
You will begin to notice vaginal improvement within the first few weeks after treatment. As your body’s collagen production increases, your results will continue to improve over time. Within 6 to 12 weeks most women experience maximum improvement in vaginal sensitivity, tightness, and bladder control.
Is There Anyone Who Can’t Have Viveve Vaginal Tightening?
Because Viveve is 100% natural using only RF heat energy – with no side effects or medical/drug interactions – almost all women are good candidates for Viveve. Only women who have a pacemaker or defibrillator, or certain rare vaginal conditions, may not undergo Viveve due to the radiofrequency energy is used.
