As women age and go through menopause, there can be a dramatic change in the elasticity of the vaginal tissue. Life events, including having children, can further contribute to vaginal laxity. The tissue loosens over time, causing incontinence problems, loss of sensation, urge incontinence, stress incontinence, overactive bladder, and changes in sexual intercourse sensation. While not physiologically harmful, vaginal laxity can be emotionally taxing.
Fortunately, advances in technology offer a new way to rebuild vaginal tissue and yields great results. The Viveve procedure is a single treatment using laser technology that helps with vaginal laxity, incontinence, and dryness. This one-time procedure stimulates the body’s natural collagen formation in the vaginal tissue, lasts for approximately 1 hour, and does not require hospitalization or anesthesia. Patients report a noticeable tightening of tissue along the entire length of the vagina, which can lead to increased friction and pleasure during sexual intimacy, greater bladder control, and more youthful vaginal tissue.
