Vaginal rejuvenation has advanced significantly in recent years. Today, Viveve is the leading non-surgical treatment for correcting vaginal laxity and addressing symptoms of urinary incontinence. Studio Essex at Heights Plastic Surgery is proud to offer this advanced treatment solution to the women living in Houston and the surrounding areas of Texas.
What is Viveve?
Viveve is a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment that can address vaginal laxity and urinary incontinence, helping women regain confidence, comfort and youthfulness. The Viveve treatment uses advanced radiofrequency technology, which stimulates tissue repair and collagen production in the vaginal region. This painless treatment process is now the leading option for vaginal rejuvenation, eliminating the surgery, downtime and other undesirable features of previous vaginal rejuvenation techniques.
What are the Benefits of Viveve?
Viveve stands out among other vaginal rejuvenation options by offering the following benefits:
- Non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment
- No downtime needed
- Reduction in symptoms of urinary incontinence
- Increased natural lubrication
- Increased sensation and sexual satisfaction
- Improvement in vaginal laxity
How Much Does Viveve Cost?
Viveve treatments at Studio Essex of Heights Plastic Surgery can range from $2,000 to $3,000. Your final price will depend on your specific anatomy and goals. Because the treatment does not require any external costs, patients can simply book an appointment with Dr. Downey’s office. Unfortunately, as vaginal rejuvenation is still considered a cosmetic treatment, Viveve is not covered by insurance at this time.
What is the Viveve Treatment Like?
During the Viveve treatment, the Viveve handpiece will be inserted into the vaginal canal. Here, it will begin to emit radiofrequency energy, tightening vaginal tissue and stimulating the production of collagen. There is no anesthetic needed for this process, as Viveve features unique cooling technology that keeps you safe and comfortable throughout the duration of the treatment. The Viveve handpiece will be maneuvered throughout treatment until all areas have been effectively treated. The treatment takes just 30 minutes to complete.
Is There Any Downtime Following the Viveve Treatment?
Viveve requires absolutely no downtime or recovery period. You can resume all activities, including exercise, immediately following your treatment. However, we do recommend that patients abstain from sexual intercourse for the first 48 hours after treatment. This allows the collagen production process to begin safely, ensuring optimal results in the coming months.
What Results Can I Expect from Viveve?
The results from Viveve will begin to develop gradually, with results becoming more noticeable about three months after treatment. As collagen is continuously produced and implemented into the vaginal tissue, these results will continue to improve. Patients may notice improvements for several months after their treatment, and are often recommended multiple treatment sessions to maximize these results. Once achieved, the results from Viveve are clinically proven to last about one year or longer.
