Tightening Your Vagina Nonsurgically With Viveve
Vaginal rejuvenation is becoming a more common treatment option amongst women, with some celebrities lauding their results. Analysts predict the vaginal rejuvenation industry will see significant growth and expect the market to be valued at $12 billion by 2026.
Contrary to popular belief, this type of rejuvenation is not only for the rich and famous. Furthermore, it is not just for aesthetics. It has functional and therapeutic benefits often overlooked in discussions surrounding "designer vaginas."
Understanding the Procedure
Vaginal tightening is not a uniform treatment. Instead, it encompasses a range of procedures, including:
Vaginoplasty, which revises or rebuilds the vagina
Clitoral hood reduction, which decreases the skin surrounding the clitoris
Labiaplasty, which amends the appearance of the labia minora or inner vaginal lips
Vulvoplasty, which changes the appearance of the labia majora or outer vaginal lips
Women seeking this treatment fall into three categories:
Those looking to enhance sexual response with procedures like clitoral hood reduction
Those seeking cosmetic changes to the appearance of their genitalia
Those with pelvic floor issues seeking to tighten their vaginas
Another group includes cancer patients who have undergone radiation or surgery. Others include those with congenital conditions and transgender women seeking gender-affirming care.
What Happens During the Procedure?
The specifics of the treatment vary with the intended result and specific procedure. Those done for aesthetic purposes—performed on an outpatient basis—take only a few hours. A more complex procedure may need an extended hospital stay.
Nonsurgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
As women age, the vaginal tissues can lose their firmness, much like the skin on the rest of the body. This laxity stems from the reduction of collagen, especially around the vaginal entrance. This aging process can result in many health and wellness concerns. These include urinary incontinence, dryness in the vagina, and challenges in achieving orgasm.
What Is Viveve?
This is a cutting-edge treatment. It uses monopolar radiofrequency to increase collagen production in the vaginal wall. It does so in a more controlled way than laser treatments. The technology allows for the uniform stimulation of collagen production. This helps provide results that can last for up to a year.
It has a controlled cooling system. That helps deliver precise heat for an effective neocollagenesis process. This leads to a firmer and more youthful vaginal wall. Unlike other rejuvenation treatments, it is noninvasive and pain-free. Patients experience only a cooling and warming sensation during the procedure. One treatment can offer consistent, long-lasting results with no recovery time.
What Can You Expect After Treatment?
The effects of the treatment differ among patients. Some may experience the benefits immediately. Others may notice the results after several months. The improvement level may last up to a year or even more. It depends on each person's ability to produce collagen.
Vaginal tightening has many benefits, with no adverse side effects reported. You can enjoy improved lubrication and reduced pain during intercourse. Almost 90 percent of patients report enhanced sexual arousal and orgasm. The treatment also combats stress and urge-related incontinence. And the best part? No recovery time is necessary, so you can start feeling the benefits immediately.
