7 Common Reasons Women Get Vaginal Rejuvenation: What Is Viveve? and How Does It Work?

Why Women Get a Vaginal Rejuvenation

Throughout a woman’s life, she may experience several different health concerns. Most commonly, childbirth, active lifestyles, menopause, weight fluctuations, or a shift in hormones can lead to loosening of muscles and related concerns that may cause stress incontinence, the pressure (or stress) placed on the bladder causing urinary leakage. This often happens with physical movement. For example, if you have ever wondered why you leak urine when you laugh, cough or exercise, it may be due to stress urinary incontinence. These issues not only affect us physically but can affect us mentally by limiting our ability to live our best lives. 

  • Do you leak urine when you laugh, cough, sneeze, jump or work out? 
  • Do you wear panty liners as protection for leakage? 
  • Do tampons slip or not feel as snug as they used to? 
  • Have you noticed a decrease in arousal or diminished orgasm during intercourse? 
  • Is vaginal dryness causing discomfort? 
  • Do you experience sudden “urges” to urinate? 


Reason #1: Vaginal Laxity and Urinary Incontinence 

Urinary incontinence can result from vaginal laxity due to decreased estrogen levels and subsequent deterioration of collagen, which reduces the vulva-vaginal mucosa. This can lead to a woman feeling less confident about her body. Stress incontinence is a more specific condition characterized by the inability to prevent leaking urine when sneezing, laughing, exercising, or coughing. Following childbirth, women often deal with a strong need to urinate but struggle to get to the toilet in time; this is referred to as urge incontinence. Difficulties with urinary incontinence are more common among women, especially postmenopausal, postpartum, and menopausal women. The innovative Viveve procedure can treat urinary incontinence and subsequent symptoms. Most often, incontinence in menopausal and postmenopausal women is due to reduced levels of estrogen and collagen atrophy. Viveve now works to replenish this degenerated collagen. This new foundation of stronger tissue can help the vaginal wall become more pliant and improve tightness to increase your body’s ability to manage urine flow properly. The non-invasive low-risk treatment applies its advanced radio-frequency technology to the vaginal wall to stimulate collagen growth, improve vaginal laxity, increase feminine wellness, and boost women’s confidence in their bodies. 


Reason #2: Pregnancy or Childbirth 


Reason #3: Post-Childbirth Vaginal Laxity 

Vaginal laxity is often found in new mothers and results from the expansion of the vagina to accommodate a baby while it makes its way through the birth canal. This condition can lead to a decline in female sexual function, poor body image, and reduced quality of life. More specifically, difficulties with vaginal looseness and relaxed tissue following childbirth often cause reduced sexual sensitivity and urinary incontinence. Thankfully, mothers can now receive the innovative new Viveve treatment as soon as 8 to 12 weeks following childbirth. As a result, the advanced technology can now help those struggling, regardless of whether it’s after their first or fifth baby and help them attain the improvements they have been searching for after just a few weeks. 


Reason #4: Hormonal changes– Perimenopause


Reason #5: Hysterectomy (or any other surgery that affects your pelvic floor) 


Reason #6: Significant weight loss


Reason #7: Sexual Sensitivity 

Women experiencing a lack of vaginal rigidity and sensitivity often notice severe detriments in sexual stimulation over time. This loose tissue resulting in adverse symptoms can often stem from a medical condition, childbirth, age, or a hormone imbalance. Fortunately, women struggling with these impairments now have the option of the innovative Viveve treatment. This advanced procedure can gently use radio frequencies to repair existing tissue to help restore the elastin and collagen that make for a healthy, tight, and sensitive vagina. Women who sometimes experience a loss of sensitivity or inadequate climax sensations during sex due to vaginal laxity can now see long-lasting results. Viveve’s restorative treatment can generate a natural rejuvenation of your tissue, encouraging the vaginal wall to provide more lubrication and sensitivity during sex and improve overall feminine wellness. The long-lasting results obtained in this procedure can help aid in the quality and intensity of climaxes and create a more sensational experience for you and your partner. 


What is Viveve? 

Viveve Solutions is a safe and effective non-surgical intimate wellness treatment for women looking to improve post-childbirth vaginal laxity, decrease incontinence or heighten sensation during sex. It can be completed with a 30-45 minute non-invasive in-office procedure. 


Viveve strives to enhance many areas of feminine wellness, often improving: 

  • Increasing vaginal lubrication and reducing painful intercourse 
  • The quality and intensity of the climax
  • Stress or urge urinary incontinence 
  • Vaginal sensitivity
  • Vaginal laxity (looseness or overstretched vaginal wall) 


How Does Viveve Work?

The secret to the success of this non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment is cryogen-cooled mono-polar radio frequency. This is delivered to the vaginal tissue using a specialized device to encourage your body to create fresh collagen. Collagen is something we have in high quantities in our youth, but over time the body begins to make less and less. By encouraging your body to increase the collagen in your vaginal tissues, you are also encouraging it to heal, and function like it used to. Viveve prompts the production of new collagen to reinvigorate the tissue within the vaginal wall, ultimately generating a more youthful tone and resiliency and improving body confidence. 


Non-surgical and minimally invasive, Viveve relies on a device that is no bigger than your thumb. It uses specialized contact cooling to ensure that the vaginal tissues are heated effectively and safely. Due to this cooling technology, a single session can deliver the amount of heat that other non-surgical treatments require for a series of sessions. The device’s tip is then rotated on a detailed schedule to ensure every part of the tissue is treated evenly. It should not cause any discomfort. Treatment sessions require no anesthesia and are completely painless. There is no downtime following treatment, and patients can resume normal activities.
