The aging process brings on many changes like wrinkly skin, stiff knees, and gray hair. Some of these eventualities are out of your control, and some you can prevent, or at least delay for a while. And some you can actually reverse.
Your vagina ages just like all your other body parts, but most women don’t recognize the signs, or if they do, they don’t realize they can do something about it. Here at Harmony Aesthetics Center in Los Angeles, we provide a comfortable, professional environment where women can feel free to talk about their vaginal health and get answers and treatments that significantly improve their quality of life.
Our vaginal rejuvenation treatment is a simple, painless, noninvasive way to make a huge difference. Here’s what you need to know.
What to do for an aging vagina
Just like the skin on your face and hands, the skin inside your vagina changes with time. It becomes thinner, drier, looser, and more delicate. Childbirth and menopause also add to the transformation.
But we can reverse some of those effects with Viveve®, a slim, handheld device that emits radiofrequency energy into your vaginal tissues to restore their structure and vitality. You may feel some warm and cool sensations, but no pain, even though this process causes countless micro injuries to your vaginal skin.
Starting immediately and progressing over the next several weeks and months, your body kicks into healing mode and remodels the soft tissues, including skin and muscle, that have deteriorated over the years.
Is vaginal rejuvenation for me?
You may have noticed that things have changed in your intimate area, and, like many women, you may believe that you just have to live with these inevitable inconveniences — but you don’t. With Viveve, there’s a nonsurgical way to reclaim your confidence and control. This amazing technology can benefit you if you identify with any of the following.
Leaking urine or not being able to hold it in like you used to are normal signs of aging called urinary incontinence. As your bladder muscles weaken, you lose the ability to control them. Some women have stress incontinence, meaning you leak a little urine whenever you put stress or pressure on your bladder, like when you laugh, sneeze, cough, run, or lift something. Others have urge incontinence, which makes it difficult to stop urine from passing when the urge hits. You may even have a little of both.
Viveve solves this by restoring the integrity of your muscle tissues and returning your ability to control urine flow.
A young, healthy vagina is a moist vagina. Throughout each stage of your life, and even throughout each month, your hormones fluctuate and cause various types of fluids and cervical mucus to flow through your vagina. It can be clear, cloudy, thick, thin, watery, and even stretchy depending on where you are in your menstrual cycle, pregnancy, or state of menopause.
After menopause, the cervical mucus valves shut off, and you’re left with a dry, arid environment that makes sex very painful. Viveve stimulates the production of cervical mucus and relubricates your vagina.
Loose vaginal tissue
During your youth, your vagina is stretchy and elastic. But childbirth (especially multiple vaginal births) and age (and the inevitable decrease of estrogen it brings) can stretch out your vaginal skin and leave it lax. And because it’s drier and thinner, it lacks the resiliency to bounce back. Your vaginal muscles also lose their tone and don’t contract and relax like they once did.
Our vaginal rejuvenation treatment tightens your vaginal canal, allowing you to regain the pleasurable sensations of sexual intercourse once again.
Weak pelvic floor muscles
In addition to age and childbirth, being overweight can contribute to your vaginal woes, in particular your pelvic floor muscles. These include your bladder, uterus, rectum, and vagina. Viveve’s radiofrequency waves increase blood flow to these muscles and restores their function. This gives you greater control over your bladder and bowels and restores your confidence in social and sexual situations.
If you’re in good overall health and are experiencing any of the symptoms we mentioned, you may be a great candidate for vaginal rejuvenation.
