You know that your appearance changes with age, and you might feel a few more body aches and pains, but you might not think about the age-related changes happening in your intimate areas. At Youthful Reflexion in Tarpon Springs, Florida, Mark Greig, OMD, and Aaron Andrews, MD, offer vaginal revitalization using Viveve® Solutions. To find out if you’re a candidate to treat urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, and other issues, call the office or book an appointment online today.
Vaginal revitalization refers to treatments that restore the elasticity, tone, and strength of the tissues in your vaginal canal.
The vaginal wall naturally changes as you age, and major hormonal fluctuations involved in pregnancy and menopause don’t help. Vaginal revitalization treatments at Youthful Reflexion can help restore your sexual wellness and your self-confidence.
Collagen and elastin loss are largely responsible for the changes in your sexual health. Collagen is a structural fiber that helps keep your tissues firm and strong, while elastin makes them stretchy.
For vaginal revitalization treatments, the team at Youthful Reflexion uses the Viveve® system. Viveve uses a cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency device to deliver energy deep into your tissues for a drastic improvement.
Viveve vaginal revitalization is completely nonsurgical and involves no downtime and no pain. Viveve’s radiofrequency energy penetrates the deep tissues in your vaginal region. The energy heats your tissues to promote collagen formation and strengthens the muscles in your pelvic floor.
The Viveve treatment is very comfortable because of the device’s controlled cooling system. It keeps you from feeling uncomfortable heat as the radiofrequency treats your tissues. The cooling effect also protects the surface skin and tissues from damage.
After your Viveve treatment, you might experience some discharge, but it’s unlikely you’ll experience irritation. You should avoid using tampons and having sexual intercourse for up to four days after the treatment. The full results of your vaginal revitalization become apparent after about a month of collagen growth.
Vaginal revitalization treatments with Viveve can result in notable improvements for your sexual health and functioning.
Improvements you might experience from your treatment include:
Vaginal revitalization treatments with Viveve can also treat both urge urinary incontinence and stress urinary incontinence.
Stress incontinence is bladder leakage that occurs when you place stress on the muscles in the region, like when you work out, laugh, or sneeze. Urge urinary incontinence happens when you feel the strong need to urinate suddenly and don’t have time to make it to the restroom.
If you experience urinary incontinence, pain during sex, vaginal dryness, or other symptoms affecting your sexual wellness, call Youthful Reflexion to set up a vaginal revitalization consultation.
