Everything You Need to Know About Vaginal Rejuvenation
A once taboo topic, vaginal rejuvenation is beginning to make its way into mainstream conversation. While this normalization of the procedure is allowing more people to access it, it may also lead to more questions, as individuals seek to determine whether or not this procedure is right for them. At Better Life Carolinas, we have found Viveve™ to be an excellent and effective procedure for women seeking to address a variety of vaginal health concerns. So if you have questions about vaginal rejuvenation with Viveve™, here is everything you need to know.
What is Viveve™?
Viveve™ is a radiofrequency energy-based vaginal rejuvenation system most commonly used to tighten vagina. The procedure sends this energy to the treatment area to stimulate collagen production. As the collagen is formed, the patient will experience a natural boost in vaginal tightening. Viveve™ should not be confused with other vaginal rejuvenation treatments such as the Mona Lisa Touch. While the Mona Lisa laser can be effective for improving some aspects of vaginal health, it does not provide vaginal tightening. Viveve™ is similar to Femilift, THERMIva, (Thermi) or Votiva.
What Does Viveve™ Treat?
The most common health concerns addressed by Viveve™ are vaginal laxity or loose vagina and urinary incontinence also known as stress urinary incontinence. As a result of the procedure, women will notice improved function, increased vaginal tightening, and more sensation during sexual intercourse. Viveve™ is frequently recommended for restoring enjoyment of post-partum sex, including post-partum arousal and post-partum desire. Women of all ages may suffer from anorgasmia—a difficulty in reaching orgasm—but it is most common in menopausal women. Viveve™ is also an effective anorgasmia treatment. If you have concerns about saggy vagina, the quality of sex after baby or difficulty reaching orgasm at any age, talk to your doctor about the variety of vaginoplasty treatments that are available to help.
Does Viveve™ Hurt?
Vaginal RF (radiofrequency) is different from a vaginal laser like the DiVa laser. Viveve™ treatment is gentle and is combined with a cooling component that ensures the delicate vaginal tissue is protected while still receiving the deep rejuvenation you are seeking. This makes the entire experience comfortable and effective, so that Viveve™ does not hurt.
How Long is a Viveve™ Treatment?
A single Viveve™ treatment will take approximately 30 minutes total, less than an average V steam (vaginal steaming) appointment. Viveve™ vaginal tightening treatment is designed to be effective without disrupting your busy day.
Will I Need Multiple Treatments?
In most cases, our patients see significant results after only one treatment. However, some conditions, such as inorgasmia may take longer to treat. Your doctor will discuss the best plan of action for your needs.
Will There Be Any Side Effects?
One of the best aspects of Viveve™ is that there are no significant side effects, and you will not need to take any time off of work. However, it is best to wait at least 48 hours before engaging in sexual intercourse.
When Will I See the Results?
Due to the fact that collagen production takes time, you can expect the results to gradually appear after your treatment. Many of our patients will see results within a few weeks of their appointment. It will take approximately three months for you to experience the full results.
How Long Do Viveve™ Treatment Results Last?
The results from a Viveve™ treatment have been clinically proven to last up to a year or longer.

Viveve™ is an All-In-One Approach
One of the greatest benefits of using Viveve™ is that it is suitable for numerous concerns related to vaginal health. In short, the procedure is commonly used to restore vaginal tissue, thereby improving tightness and reducing urinary incontinence symptoms. For women who are experiencing less vaginal lubrication, or a decrease in sexual sensation as a result of loose vaginal tissue, this can make a noticeable difference.
As for urinary incontinence, Viveve™ is also beloved for its ability to not just address the embarrassing and inconvenient involuntary leakage that occurs when sneezing, laughing, coughing or exercising, but for improving a woman’s self-esteem and helping her to feel more confident in her body.
How Does Viveve™ Work?
The Viveve™ procedure uses radiofrequency energy. This energy is sent to the treatment area, where it stimulates the production of collagen. As the collagen forms, the vaginal tissues will become more tight, thereby addressing the relevant concerns. In most cases, your Viveve™ treatment can be completed in as little as 30 minutes and requires no downtime. While you will likely see some immediate improvement, you can expect the results to only become more noticeable in the following weeks. Typically, our patients require only one session to see significant results.
