Vaginal laxity is a common condition plaguing women who’ve given birth vaginally. Loss of sexual function and urinary incontinence often result. Learn how to restore your sex life and how Viveve can help.
More and more women find themselves experiencing decreased sexual arousal and lubrication, reduced intensity of orgasms during sexual intercourse, and urine leakage while laughing, coughing, sneezing, or while working out. These are all symptoms of vaginal laxity, a common condition.
Vaginal laxity is nothing more than the result of, well, life. Childbearing, difficult vaginal delivery, or a large birth weight baby, changes in hormones, athletics, and even just the aging process all contribute to this common malady.
Vaginal laxity can rob you of your quality of life at any age. Your loss of sexual function can affect your relationships and even create a negative body image. You can do countless Kegels (the isometric exercise of tightening your pelvic floor and vaginal muscles), but you still must cope with the effects of vaginal laxity.
Until recently, there were limited options, almost all of them surgical. They may treat one symptom, but not another. You don’t want to play roulette with your sexual future, nor do you want to be afraid to run, jump, or laugh out loud.
Now there’s Viveve, the non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure. Viveve offers a safe and effective gynecological treatment that’s specifically designed to treat vaginal laxity.
Viveve is a single-session treatment that has been shown to improve urinary continence, tighten vaginal muscles, and restore sexual function. Viveve gives you back your quality of life.
What exactly is vaginal laxity
The vaginal walls are much like the rest of your soft tissue. They’re composed of fibrous material as well as collagen and elastin, which provide your vagina with flexibility and strength, both necessary for childbirth.
Through the miracle of birth, your vaginal walls are stretched and stressed, which results in diminished sensitivity and tightness. After childbirth, your vagina tightens back up significantly, but it doesn’t return to what it was previously. With each birth, you become a little more loose. As hormones fluctuate, through breastfeeding or perimenopause, you begin to notice a decrease in lubricant and may have to use over-the-counter lubricants more frequently.
The looseness of your vagina and the dulled response to sexual stimulation are at the root of vaginal laxity, which affects 50% of women who’ve given birth vaginally. Aside from childbirth, aging and even intense athletics can contribute to a weakness in your pelvic floor and vaginal walls that enhance the condition.
How Viveve can help
Much less invasive than vaginoplasty, Viveve calls on your body’s own collagen production to rejuvenate your vagina, improving its structural integrity. Cryogen-cooled radiofrequency provides stimulation for collagen production, a process that naturally slows around age 30. Results are extremely positive, and they can last 12 months.
The Viveve treatment works by delivering a cooling cryogen, which protects the vaginal tissue. Then the radiofrequency waves heat up the lax vaginal tissue, boosting the collagen needed to promote the growth of new, flexible tissue. Structure returns as the new cells become tighter, helping to restore sexual function. Best of all: Non-surgical Viveve is safe.
Until recently, women weren’t very vocal about the experience of vaginal laxity. Now that women have found their voice, medical technology has answered with Viveve.
Vaginal rejuvenation is helping women every day. If you suffer from urinary incontinence, loose vaginal muscles, and loss of sexual pleasure and desire, do what countless women like you have done, and look into the Viveve procedure.
