It can be hard to talk about your vaginal health, especially if you’re having problems that are sensitive to you, such as:
- Laxity or looseness
- Urinary incontinence
- Weakened pelvic floor muscles
- Loss of sensitivity during intimacy
These symptoms may seem embarrassing, but many women experience them, especially after childbirth and menopause. The good news is you don’t have to find a time machine to restore your vaginal health, and you don’t have to turn to surgery either.
Our experienced team at Harmony Aesthetics Center in Los Angeles offers safe and effective vaginal-rejuvenation solutions, such as Viveve®. This gentle, quick, and nonsurgical treatment can restore your vaginal health and resolve your symptoms.
How Viveve works
Viveve is an in-office treatment designed to generate new and healthy collagen in your vaginal tissue.
Collagen is a protein in your skin and muscles that provide elasticity and flexibility in your tissue. While collagen makes up approximately one-third of your body’s protein content, your system starts making less of it as you age, especially after menopause. As you lose collagen, your vaginal tissue and pelvic floor muscles can grow weaker and more stretched, which can lead to vaginal, sexual, and urinary problems. When you add physical stresses, such as childbirth, these changes can become even more pronounced.
Viveve works to restore lost collagen by creating micro-injuries in your vaginal canal. This technique, which is not painful, triggers the healing process in your body and helps restore healthy tissue to the area. Unlike other vaginal rejuvenation treatments, Viveve keeps the treatment site cool — so you will be comfortable — while at the same time heating targeted tissues to activate collagen production. This patented approach enables the treatment to deliver deep and even heat penetration that’s safe and comfortable for delicate vaginal tissue.
What to expect from Viveve
Viveve treatments at Harmony Aesthetics Center take approximately 30 minutes.
During your appointment, you lie back and relax while we insert a small probe into your vagina. You should feel comfortable because as the radiofrequency energy warms your deep vaginal tissue, the integrated cooling technology simultaneously protects the treatment area.
In most cases, you only need one Viveve treatment, and many women start seeing initial vaginal tightening immediately in response to the radiofrequency energy. Over the weeks to come, you can expect continued improvement as healthy collagen returns to the area, including:
- Increased sensitivity
- More lubrication
- Stronger muscle contractions
- Improved bladder control
Results from a treatment with Viveve can last from a year to several years.
While there’s no downtime with Viveve, you may experience mild tenderness in the treatment area. Because of this, you should abstain from sexual activity for a few days following your appointment.
