Vaginal Revitalization Q&A
What is vaginal revitalization?
Vaginal revitalization is a type of procedure that builds collagen in your vaginal and vulvar tissues. Collagen is a structural protein that diminishes as you age and through hormonal processes like pregnancy and menopause. By restoring collagen in the vaginal region with vaginal revitalization, you can increase the strength of the tissues and their elasticity.
North Valley Women’s Care uses the Viveve® system for vaginal revitalization. The Viveve handheld device emits gentle radiofrequency energy into your tissues to cause a healing reaction, which includes collagen restoration.
A unique feature of the Viveve vaginal revitalization system is its cryogen-cooling component. The radiofrequency heats up your tissues, but the cooling component balances the heat to protect the tissues and guarantee your comfort during the procedure. Because of the cooling system, you don’t need any anesthesia for the treatment.
What are the benefits of vaginal revitalization?
Vaginal revitalization treatments help counteract or reduce some of the sexual and functional wellness complications that can arise after pregnancy and childbirth or during menopause. These processes involve major changes to the body and can alter the muscles and tissues around the vagina in various ways.
Viveve treatments at North Valley Women’s Care can improve these conditions:
Vaginal revitalization improves urinary incontinence, or involuntary urine leaking, by strengthening the muscles that support your urethra.
Sexual dysfunction can include vaginal dryness and pain during sex, and it can lead to problems in your personal relationships. Vaginal revitalization improves sexual function by improving the structural integrity of your vagina and increasing bloodflow to the area.
Vaginal laxity happens as the muscles and tissues around the vagina grow weaker. Fortunately, vaginal revitalizations can strengthen them again by increasing collagen fibers.
How many vaginal revitalization treatments will I need?
The Viveve System is a one-of-a-kind approach to vaginal revitalization because it only requires one treatment session for excellent results. The procedure happens in the office on an outpatient basis at North Valley Women’s Care and only takes about one hour to complete. Research on vaginal revitalization with the Viveve system shows results for around 12 months.
