Vaginal laxity and urinary incontinence are common health concerns among aging women and women who have gone through childbirth or who have certain medical conditions affecting collagen levels in the skin and vaginal tissue. Over time the skin loses its shape creating a feeling of looseness around the vaginal area. Women dealing with this problem usually experience:
- Decreased libido.
- Loss of sexual arousal.
- Reduced sexual satisfaction during intercourse.
- “Stress” Urinary Incontinence (SUI).
How Do Vaginal Tightening Treatments Work?
The technologies used for treatment of vaginal laxity deliver energy (either laser or radio frequency) to the targeted tissues in order to stimulate collagen production over time. Radio frequency (RF) technology produces a more effective response than laser procedures, because it reaches deeper into the vaginal walls’ muscle layers, resulting in a significant tightening of vaginal muscles. These procedures help improve urinary incontinence (stop bladder leakage) and quality of sex life.
Viveve – Radio frequency (RF) Treatment for Female Rejuvenation
In the past, treatment of these conditions required surgery with all the discomfort, downtime, and surgical risks that follow. Recent technological advances led to development of new non-surgical treatments that utilize various energy devices that can provide relief in many cases. At Medical Spa Club in Richmond B.C. we successfully use these technologies to administer vaginal tightening treatment and help women with these common problems. In our assessment, Viveve is a very effective Radio Frequency treatment for rejuvenation. The Viveve treatment works via a small, cryogen-cooled probe to protect the tissue, with the effect reaching deeper into the vaginal walls with radio frequency waves, stimulating collagen production to reinvigorate the tissue which result in significant tightening of vaginal muscles very effectively and painlessly. Unlike surgical vaginal reconstruction procedures, such as Vaginoplasty, Viveve is non-painful, 30-minute, single-session, in-office non-surgical treatment that does not require anesthesia. After your procedure you will be able to drive yourself home and resume your daily activities. Before administering a Viveve vaginal tightening treatment at Medical Spa Club in Richmond B.C., Dr. Pinkhasik will carefully assess your health condition and discuss your treatment options, risks, and benefits in detail, in order to maximize your comfort and safety during the procedure and a successful outcome.
