Dr. Mark Schusterman is a double board certified plastic surgeon. Having practiced for over 30 years, he knows that discussing vaginal issues is profoundly personal. He will listen to your concerns and explain for you the non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure, Viveve.
Women can experience vaginal issues due to childbirth, age, or vaginal trauma from an accident. Or sometimes from intense, repetitive exercise such as horseback riding. These can result in sensitivity and other issues in the vaginal area.
Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schusterman utilizes The Viveve System, a cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (RF) energy delivery system inserted into the vagina to release safe RF energy and stimulate the surrounding tissues. Viveve is a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment for the relief of the following conditions:
Vaginal rejuvenation is a safe and effective treatment for all women, but most women who seek this procedure are typically postmenopausal or at least three months postpartum. However, if you suffer from pelvic pain, vaginal prolapse, and urinary incontinence, vaginal rejuvenation in Houston may benefit you.
Keep in mind that because many women shave or wax their genital area, there is a public misconception of what a vagina should like. There is no one ideal look. Be aware of being body-shamed into thinking your vagina should look a certain way. There is a large spectrum of what a woman's labia looks like, and it's essential to understand what results you are trying to achieve.
A small probe, emitting cryogen-cooling + RF waves, is inserted into the vaginal canal to stimulate your body to produce new collagen and reinvigorate the vaginal tissue. The probe is inserted about 7-8 centimeters (about the length of a tampon) into the vaginal canal and rotated 360 degrees. The tissues are then heated and cooled to tighten.
Vaginal rejuvenation treatments do not require any downtime. You are free to leave the outpatient facility without the assistance or need of someone driving you home, and you can resume your normal activities. It is recommended not to insert anything into the vagina for 3-5 days, which means no sex for at least a week.
We strive to deliver the most effective vaginal rejuvenation Houston has to offer, and our results speak for themselves. Many women experience results after one vaginal rejuvenation treatment. Most will experience better results after the second treatment. You may also continue to see ongoing results in the weeks following the procedure. It is recommended to have the treatment done every 6-12 months for continued results. After your vaginal rejuvenation treatment with Viveve, you may experience the following benefits:
It's vital to have a frank conversation about your expectations and to have a healthy outlook on the results. There is no permanent procedure that will bring our bodies back prior to childbirth. If you are living with the embarrassment of painful intercourse, urinary incontinence, or other vaginal issues, call Dr. Schusterman for a consultation about vaginal rejuvenation, and learn more about how Viveve vaginal rejuvenation treatment can help you today.
Patients say vaginal rejuvenation feels like a typical vaginal examination. There may be some irritation or discomfort because of the low-frequency cooling treatment. If needed, a topical anesthetic is used.
You may experience some discomfort like period cramps. Other risks include bleeding and vaginal or bladder infection. Rare complications include vaginal or vulvar scarring.
It is recommended to wait 3-5 days after vaginal rejuvenation treatment to have sex.
The Viveve treatment does not replace surgery. The radiofrequency will help to tighten vaginal walls and help to rebuild collagen. Invasive vaginoplasty rebuilds the vaginal muscles, and there is a significant recovery time with vaginal surgery.
The vaginal rejuvenation Viveve procedure may need repeated treatments depending on your condition. Dr. Schushterman will recommend a plan for you to maintain optimal results.
Vaginal rejuvenation is a cosmetic treatment and is not typically covered by insurance. Check with your insurance provider, as some insurances may pay for the treatments if it helps with medical issues such as urinary incontinence.
