Like other parts of your body, the vaginal walls lose strength and flexibility over time and after childbirth. Board-certified OB/GYN's Robert Gennaro, MD, Patrick Cahill, DO, Antonios Panagiotakis, DO, Shieva Ghofrany, MD, FACOG, and their team at Coastal Obstetrics & Gynecology treat vaginal laxity with Geneveve™ by Viveve® at their office in Stamford, Connecticut. To restore a youthful tone to your vagina, call or book an appointment online.
Experiences like childbirth, hormonal changes, and age alter the tissues of your vagina. Over time, the vaginal walls’ external skin may become loose and more relaxed in appearance.
Vaginal laxity often causes decreased sensation and pleasure during sex. Not only does this place stress on your romantic relationships, but it can also negatively affect your self-confidence and quality of life.
Loss of tone in your vagina may develop as a normal part of aging. However, certain events can increase your chances of developing vaginal laxity, such as pregnancy and vaginal delivery. Some women experience stretching and trauma during childbirth that cause a loss of vaginal tightness.
As a mother herself, Dr. Ghofrany has personal experience dealing with how your body changes during pregnancy and after childbirth. That’s why she offers Viveve nonsurgical vaginal tightening at Coastal Obstetrics & Gynecology.
Vaginal laxity is more than just a cosmetic concern. This condition can lead to decreased sexual pleasure, which may ultimately reduce your desire to have sex. Decreased sexual desire can have detrimental effects on your body image, self-esteem, and emotional well-being.
Fortunately, the team at Coastal Obstetrics & Gynecology offers painless, nonsurgical and non-hormonal vaginal tightening with Viveve.
Viveve uses clinically proven, cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency energy to deeply warm your vaginal tissues while cooling the delicate surface. In a single 30-minute treatment, Viveve produces improved vaginal tightness and sexual sensation without adverse side effects.
Before treatment, one of the doctors performs a physical exam and reviews your medical history to make sure you’re a good candidate for Viveve.
During your session, the doctor inserts a small probe inside your vagina. You may feel alternating heating and cooling sensations while Viveve works, but the procedure isn’t painful.
Afterward, you can return to normal activities right away. Viveve doesn’t require downtime for recovery, but you should wait at least two days before having sex.
Optimal results usually appear within 6-12 weeks and last anywhere from 12 months to several years.
