As women age, have children, or have other gynecologic issues their skin and vaginal tissue go through a series of changes. The loss of collagen and elastin, structural proteins vital to vaginal tightness, results in laxity even in women who haven’t had children. The decline in these critical proteins may cause discomfort during intercourse and leave you self-conscious, especially with a sexual partner.

At Derma-Tech, one of the treatments used to treat vaginal laxity is Viveve®. Our Board Certified Gynecologist, Dr. Michelle Boice, performs this treatment, which is used worldwide to help women. Viveve® nonsurgically treats vaginal laxity by rejuvenating collagen and elastin production in the vaginal walls. In some cases, Viveve® may also treat vaginal dryness and improve bladder control. 

What is Viveve® Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Viveve® is a non-surgical option to treat vaginal dryness, laxity, painful sexual intercourse, and stress urinary incontinence by rejuvenating the vaginal tissue. 

Using a dual-energy platform device, cryogen cooling protects the surface of the vaginal walls while monopolar radiofrequency heats the lower layers. A small wand enters the vaginal canal while emitting RF energy. The heat triggers the cells to produce more collagen, improving tightness and lubrication. You may feel some warmth but shouldn’t feel any discomfort during the process. 

Only requiring a one hour session, Viveve® offers potential immediate results with noticeable improvement over time. Since collagen and elastin production takes time to increase, the final results may take months to develop fully. 

Results of Viveve® Vaginal Rejuvenation

You can reclaim intimate enjoyment and self-confidence in the bedroom in just one session. Immediately after, you may feel some temporary initial tightening with improved and continuing results in the following months. Women notice an improvement in vaginal laxity and dryness. 

Results may last over a year depending on different factors such as age. You may want maintenance treatments to keep the restored firmness.

My first time for microdermabrasion, fillers and botox. Tina was a delight, she did the microdermabrasion. She explained every step and was pleasant and informative. Trish did my fillers and botox the next day. I was nervous when I went for my consult with her. She put me at ease right away. She helped me decide by giving me details and educating me on the different fillers. Never once did I feel pressured or uncomfortable. This is the first place I went. This is the only place i will go. Love it!!!
