Viveve Vaginal Rejuvenation
in McKinney TX
Do you leak when you are laughing, coughing, sneezing, or working out? Are you a patient that has a decreased arousal or orgasm during intercourse? Are you experiencing discomfort from vaginal dryness? At Craig Ranch OB/GYN we want to stop leakage and pain and help you to start enjoying the things you love with Viveve Vaginal Rejuvenation.
What is Viveve Vaginal Rejuvenation?
The Viveve System is a non-surgical treatment that works to rebuild lost vaginal tissue. Vaginal rejuvenation is an option for women who experience vaginal changes due to childbirth, hormones, lifestyle, or aging.
Who are the ideal candidates for Viveve vaginal rejuvenation?
Nearly any woman can be a good candidate for Viveve vaginal rejuvenation. Women experience vaginal laxity and lack of lubrication for several reasons, including lifestyle, genetic predisposition, childbirth, and aging. The effects of motherhood and aging may make it difficult for a woman to climax during sexual intercourse or even feel comfortable when having sex. Vaginal laxity can lead to stress urinary incontinence, as well, an embarrassing problem that can affect the quality of life. Viveve cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency technology can correct all of these problems in a single visit.
Viveve treatment can be ideal for a woman who wants to revitalize her intimate health after life changes. It can be an excellent option for female athletes or women who want to be more active in their lives without the discomfort of urine leakage. Viveve is also appropriate for women who want to maintain the tone of their pelvic floor as they age.
Candidates should be in good health and should understand the predicted outcome of their treatment based on our consultation. Viveve is not suitable for women with pacemakers or an implanted defibrillator or cardioverter.

How can I prepare for my vaginal rejuvenation procedure?
Patients need not take special precautions before their Viveve vaginal rejuvenation procedure. If we do have any recommendations based on individual circumstances, we will discuss them during the consultation.
The Viveve Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedure
Our team at Craig Ranch OB/GYN will walk you through these steps during a consultation. First, we insert a small tip just inside the vaginal opening. While rotating the treatment tip, it will cool the surface and heat the soft tissue beneath. As a result, new collagen forms and provides structure and strength. In addition, the increased collagen decreases laxity and restores sensation. The entire procedure takes about 30 – 45 minutes.
What is the recovery from Viveve vaginal rejuvenation?
Patients may resume most normal activities right after their Viveve treatment, aside from sexual intercourse. We advise patients to wait 24 to 48 hours after their procedure to have sex or insert anything into the vagina, such as a tampon. This allows tissue regeneration to begin quickly.
The effects of Viveve vaginal rejuvenation accrue gradually. Patients may begin to notice a difference in lubrication, sensitivity, and muscle tightness after about 4 weeks, though notable improvement typically is not felt until three months after treatment has taken place. These effects can last 12 months or longer.
Is Viveve vaginal rejuvenation safe?
The Viveve radiofrequency device has been thoroughly tested. No treatments have resulted in adverse effects. The inclusion of cryogen cooling maintains safe surface temperatures while monopolar radiofrequency is absorbed into deeper tissues, so the process is both safe and comfortable.
Is Viveve vaginal rejuvenation painful?
No. Viveve treatment is performed with a sterile applicator tip that is about the size of the thumb. This tip is inserted just inside the vaginal opening, where it alternately heats and cools tissue. The cooling allows the device to achieve more significant heating of tissue a few millimeters deep without discomfort for the patient. There is no need for anesthetic of any kind. During the procedure, patients may sense the intervals of warming and cooling. No patients have described this as painful.
How much does Viveve vaginal rejuvenation cost?
We are happy to consult with you about the vaginal rejuvenation process, recovery, and benefits. During your consultation, we can determine if Viveve is the best approach for you. At that time, we can provide detailed information on the cost of treatment based on your needs.
Is Viveve vaginal rejuvenation covered by insurance?
Viveve vaginal rejuvenation treatment is considered an elective procedure so it is not covered by insurance.
