How Viveve® Vaginal Rejuvenation Improves Sex

How Viveve® Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment Improves Sex

Viveve® vaginal rejuvenation uses radio-frequency energy with integrated cooling technology to help restore tightness, elasticity, lubrication and sensation to the tissue in the vagina and pelvic floor. Collagen and elastin are the natural substances in the body that are responsible for skin strength, thickness and elasticity. Viveve® radiofrequency stimulates collagen and elastin production in the vagina – while the cooling technology ensures that the procedure is more comfortable than other types of vaginal rejuvenation treatments.

Radiofrequency has been FDA approved to treat loose and “lax” skin on the face for almost a decade. Now this same safe, non-surgical technology is being used to increase collagen production in the vagina – which improves the vaginal tissue’s texture, lubrication, suppleness, thickness and elasticity.

In multiple clinical studies that were approved by the FDA, Viveve® has been clinically proven to be a safe and effective treatment for vaginal rejuvenation – without reported side effects or complications.

In addition to remedying pain during intercourse, Viveve® also typically improves sexual sensation. This is because the radiofrequency heat used for the treatment stimulates the body’s own collagen and elastin production, for thicker and more responsive vaginal walls.  In addition to plumping and strengthening the vaginal tissue with new collagen, Viveve also improves blood flow to the vagina. And, Viveve also stimulates the production of natural vaginal lubrication in the vagina – making the tissue less dry, so intercourse is less painful and more pleasurable.

What to Expect during Viveve® Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment

During your Viveve® vaginal rejuvenation treatment a small wand (about a thumb’s width) is gently inserted into the vagina to deliver warm radiofrequency (RF) energy. The patient experiences both a heating and cooling sensation, thanks to Viveve®’s unique, patented cooling technology.

The majority of our patients describe the procedure as comfortable, not painful. Only a single treatment is needed. The Viveve treatment itself typically only lasts approximately 30 minutes, during which time the patient can relax, use their phone, or listen to music .

Benefits of Viveve® Vaginal Rejuvenation

Since Viveve® vaginal rejuvenation is non-surgical and has no negative side effects, patients can return to work or their normal daily activities immediately after the 30-minute treatment. Patients will typically be asked to abstain from sexual intercourse for a couple days, but other than that there are no post-procedure restrictions on activities.

Viveve is also a very affordable treatment – less than a quarter of the cost of surgical vaginoplasty.

Viveve® treatment begins to work immediately. Many women report some immediate initial results, such as improved lubrication, more comfortable sex and reduced itching and dryness.

After just a few weeks most women report even greater effects including an increase in vaginal tightness and sensitivity, less or no pain during intercourse, improved sexual sensation, and a even a reduction in bladder leaks. After approximately six to nine weeks, the collagen should be substantially restored and “rejuvenated” for the maximum improvement in sexual sensation, tightness and lubrication.

The Best Christmas Gift of 2020: Better Sex with Viveve!

The Most Intimate Christmas Gift: Better Sex with Vaginal Rejuvenation

Christmas shopping in 2020 is challenging during social distancing – to say the least! What if we told you we had the perfect gift that keeps on giving, is guaranteed to “fit” and that can be purchased online with a few clicks? Why not give your partner AND yourself the gift of better sex and improved intimacy this holiday season with a  Gift Certificate for vaginal rejuvenation at AMAE in the Detroit area?

Improve Sexual Intimacy with Vaginal Rejuvenation

Sexual intimacy is an important part of any couple’s relationship. And, during 2020, while many couples are stuck at home together during the pandemic, an active and satisfying sex life has become even more important to couple. revolutionary new Viveve non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation may be just what you both need to reinvigorate your love life.

What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?

In the early days of romance or marriage, the couple’s sexual relationship is often the focal point of their time together. But as responsibilities such as children, careers, and mortgages take center stage, sexual relations can often get shifted to the back burner. Unfortunately, once the kids are older, careers are established, and a couple finally has more time for one another again, physiological changes in a woman’s body can make sexual intimacy less than satisfying for both partners. Even worse, in many cases, sexual intercourse actual becomes painful for the woman.

Childbirth, aging and post-menopausal hormone decrease all take their toll on the vagina. The vaginal lining can become looser, lax (lacking in tone), dry, and less sensitive. This results in painful sex for the woman and less sensation and less satisfaction for both partners.

But the fantastic news is that a one-time, non-surgical Viveve vaginal rejuvenation treatment can “turn back the clock” on female intimacy problems. Radiofrequency “vaginal rejuvenation” restores tightness, elasticity, lubrication and sensation to the vagina – in just one treatment, without surgery and without hormones.

Radiofrequency stimulates the vaginal tissue to produce more collagen, and promotes the regeneration of vaginal cells. This helps restore and rejuvenate the vagina to a more youthful state. The vaginal becomes tighter, more toned and more lubricated – improving intimacy for the woman and her partner.

Cost of Vaginal Rejuvenation in Detroit

So what’s the catch? There really isn’t one! There are no side effects, no downtime and no complications from this safe and natural treatment. The only issue, for some women, is the “price tag” – since insurance does not currently cover vaginal rejuvenation. And, as we all know, many women are notorious for not spending money on themselves.

But what better gift can you give her (and you) this holiday season, than a  Gift Certificate for better sexual health and improved intimacy?

The average middle-class married couple spends more than $1000 every year on Christmas gifts alone! Couples also typically invest this much in a good mattress set. And a new car payment alone can run from $2000 to $4000 or more per year. Shouldn’t your intimacy as a couple be worth a small investment as well?

Women: Treat yourselves to more comfortable and satisfying sex – while giving the man you love the holiday gift of more frequent and pleasurable sexual intimacy! There is still time to schedule Vivevev vaginal rejuvenation before Christmas. But hurry! Time is running out.

Men: You can purchase a  Gift Certificate at our Detroit area medical office for the cost of vaginal rejuvenation treatment. You will be giving your wife or partner the gift of heightened sexual sensation and pain-free sex – while also giving yourself the present of more satisfying sex with the woman you love.

Ask the Doctor: Is Radiofrequency Vaginal Rejuvenation Safe?

ASK DOCTOR ALI:
What is Radiofrequency Vaginal Rejuvenation and Is it Safe?

Fast, comfortable, non-surgical radiofrequency skin tightening treatments – boasting zero downtime, and no scars – have been a popular cosmetic treatment for faces for more than 15 years. Now the same radiofrequency skin tightening used since 2001 to make people look younger is gaining widespread recognition for making vaginas act and feel younger.

The Science of Radiofrequency Vaginal Rejuvenation

Radiofrequency is a common type of energy found in many aspects of daily life – from WiFi signals, xrays, radio and TV waves, and microwave ovens. Like any type of energy, radiofrequency is measured in “frequency,” or wavelengths per second.

The radiofrequency used in skin tightening is around 450 kilohertz, which is on the very low and “slow” end of the radiofrequency range. For example the radiofrequency (RF) of skin tightening treatments are more than 1 billion times slower/lower than an Xray. In other words, RF energy is very, very low when compared to the whole spectrum of electromagnetic energy.

How Radiofrequency Vaginal Rejuvenation Tightens Skin

Like any form of energy, radiofrequency produces heat. RF vaginal rejuvenation treatments work by heating the skin’s deeper layers to stimulate new collagen and elastin production, and encourage new cell regeneration. This in turn helps skin lining the vagina to become firmer, thicker and more youthful.

The advantage of using radiofrequency to heat vaginal tissue – as opposed to using the higher frequency lasers – is that the lower frequency of radiofrequency can safely penetrate to a deeper level. In other words, while high frequency lasers improve the skin’s surface, radiofrequency penetrates the skin to improve skin tone and structure, even lifting tissues.

Studies Show Radiofrequency Vaginal Rejuvenation is Safe

Everyone is exposed to low levels of radiofrequency energy every day, from cell phones, TVs, WiFi, and more. Because it’s used for so many things, RF has been extensively studied for many decades to determine its impact on humans. However, there is no conclusive evidence that radiofrequency exposure increases cancer risk in humans, even in those individuals who are regularly exposed to higher amounts of radiofrequency on their jobs.

The main known risk of radiofrequency exposure is the potential for burns from the thermal heat RF generates – but ONLY if it is administered in high doses without proper protection. However, the radiofrequency used in FDA-approved non-surgical tissue tightening is highly controlled and administered at very low doses for complete safety.

If the RF vaginal rejuvenation procedure is performed correctly by a trained medical professional, there should be no risk at all of burns or even discomfort from the heat. The radiofrequency in vaginal tightening treatments is highly controlled, and the equipment allows the doctor to closely monitor and control the device during treatment to ensure that the vaginal tissue reaches the optimal temperature to stimulate new collagen production and cell regeneration – without ever overheating the vagina.

Many clinical studies have demonstrated the excellent safety profile of radiofrequency for facial skin tightening as well as vaginal rejuvenation.

New Alternatives to Vaginal Mesh for Bladder Leak Treatment

Alternatives to Vaginal Mesh for Bladder Leaks & Incontinence

Bladder leaks are frustrating and embarrassing, yet they happen to almost 40% of women either after vaginal childbirth or after menopause. Sadly – because of some dangerous and ineffective bladder procedures used by doctors in the past – many women avoid pursuing any treatment at all and just “live with” urinary incontinence.

The great news is that there are now non-surgical, non-invasive bladder leak treatments that are 100% safe and highly effective!

The Dangers of Vaginal Mesh

If you own a television, you have no doubt seen the many attorneys’ commercials advertising for individuals who have had a trans-vaginal mesh implant. This mesh looks like a fishing net made of either metal, fiber or plastic. In the 1970s some gynecological surgeons started to use meshes to treat pelvic organ prolapse, as well as “stress urinary incontinence” (bladder leaks).

Because so many women suffer from urinary incontinence, over 100,000 procedures using transvaginal mesh were being performed in the United States every year. But women began to experience both mild and very serious complications from the mesh. And because the mesh is a permanent implant that literally becomes enveloped by the body tissue, it typically cannot be removed if complications occur.

As a result, the FDA now recommends that women and their doctors carefully consider other treatment options – and only use trans-vaginal mesh as a last resort.

 Poor Vaginal Mesh Alternatives

Many doctors preach that weight loss and exercising, along with Kegel exercises, can help improve stress incontinence. But for Kegel exercises to be effective, they have to be done every day. And, we all know how hard losing weight can be – particularly after menopause.

Other undesirable options to treat stress urinary incontinence are also sometimes recommended, such as inserting an object into the vagina to physically hold the bladder – such as a “pessary” or “vaginal cone” or a surgically inserted sling (urethropexy). Electrical stimulation or biofeedback have also been tried, but require the insertion of electronic devices.

Radiofrequency the Best Alternative to Vaginal Mesh

Because of the newness of radiofrequency vaginal treatments for stress urinary incontinence, many doctors or gynecologists may simply not be familiar with this amazing technology yet.

The vagina, like the face, is made up of skin. And all types of skin rely on collagen for elasticity, tone and overall youthfulness.  As we age, and as female hormone production decreases over time, the skin on the face and in the vagina loses its tightness, and becomes dry, and lax.

State of the art Geneveve radiofrequency technology stimulates the production of collagen in the vagina – “rejuvenating” the tissue to a more firm, plump, elastic and youthful state, with just one single treatment.  This treatment not only improves sexual sensation and performance, but also stops or substantial reduces bladder leaks due to stress incontinence.

Before you agree to have any type of surgery, electronic device, or vaginal device inserted schedule a consultation to learn about non-surgical, non-invasive Geneveve radiofrequency treatment for bladder leaks (stress urinary incontinence.)

Doctors’ New Bladder Leak Treatments

New Clinical Study Shows Geneveve Treatment Stops Bladder Leaks

Stress urinary incontinence, a type of bladder leakage, is a medical condition affecting more than 25 million women worldwide. Yet, because many women are embarrassed to talk about it – coupled with the fact that the medical community was male dominated until relatively recently – this problem was largely ignored. And when it was addressed, dangerous and invasive surgery was the only option.

The good news is that new treatments for bladder leakage from stress urinary incontinence are finally available, very safe, and do NOT require painful surgery.

Viveve Medical, Inc. is a women’s health company dedicated to advancing medical solutions to improve women’s well-being and quality of life. Viveve has patented the GENEVEVE™ treatment, which uses clinically-proven cryogen-cooled, monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) technology to stimulate the production of collagen in areas of the vagina and pelvic floor. By “rejuvenating” the tissues in these areas, both vaginal looseness and frustrating bladder leaks can be reduced or eliminated.

Doctors’ 12 Month Geneveve Bladder Leak Treatment Study

In January Viveve released the results of a very positive 12-month pilot study regarding the effects of Geneveve Treatment on bladder leaks. Additionally, they released plans for two additional clinical studies to be conducted in Canada and the U.S. The pilot study was conducted by Bruce Allan, PhD, MD, FRCS(C)

In the 12 month pilot study, patients who underwent treatment with Viveve’s CMRF technology were followed for 12 months. Each women in the study also was evaluated for the safety of the treatment and the clinical results at four, six, nine and twelve months after receiving the vaginal rejuvenation treatment.

Two “scoring” questionnaires were given to the patients, and were used to evaluate the results:

  • The International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire-Urinary Incontinence Form;
  • The “UDI-6” Urogenital Distress Inventory Form) outcome questionnaires.

No device-related safety issues, complications or side effects were reported in any of the patients who received Geneveve Treatment for bladder leaks.

The majority of women in the clinical study also reported sustained reduction of bladder leak symptoms at 12 months.

The doctors who conducted the study explained that the combined cooling and deep tissue capability of CMRF effectively targeted the connective tissue that supports the structure of both the vagina and the urinary system.

Doctor Allan, leader of the clinical study stated:
“In the pilot study, we found that SUI [stress urinary incontinence, i.e. bladder leak] symptoms were significantly improved … with the potential to represent a major advance in the non-invasive treatment of SUI.”

FDA Approval for Vaginal Tightening Treatment Clinical Studies

Viveve Announces FDA Approval to Continue Studies on Vaginal Tightening

Vaginal looseness or “laxity” that causes loss of sexual sensation is a medical condition affecting more than 40% of women. Yet, because many women are embarrassed to talk about it – coupled with the fact that the medical community was male dominated until relatively recently – this problem was largely ignored. And when vaginal laxity was addressed, dangerous and invasive surgery was the only option.

The good news is that new vaginal tightening treatments for vaginal laxity are finally available, very safe, and do NOT require painful surgery.

12 Month Geneveve Vaginal Tightening Treatment Study

Viveve Medical, Inc. is a women’s health company dedicated to advancing medical solutions that improve women’s quality of life. Viveve has patented the GENEVEVE™ treatment, which uses clinically-proven cryogen-cooled, monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) technology to stimulate the production of collagen in areas of the vagina and pelvic floor. By “rejuvenating” the tissues in these areas with radio frequency, the vagina can be “tightened” – leading to improved sexual sensation and function.

Geneveve already has international regulatory approvals and clearances for treating vaginal laxity and/or improvement in sexual function indications in more than 55 countries around the world.

An initial clinical study was also very successful, and the safety data was sufficient for the FDA to grant continued enrollment of up to 100 subjects in second stage of sexual function trial. In March, Viveve received FDA approval to proceed with a second clinical trial (VIVEVE II) to assess the safety and effectiveness of the Viveve® System for the improvement of sexual function in women following vaginal childbirth.

Following FDA review of the second stage of safety data, Viveve plans to expand the study and continue enrollment of up to 250 patients to study the positive effects of Geneveve vaginal tightening treatment on vaginal laxity and sexual sensation.

Radiofrequency has been FDA approved for almost a decade for tightening laxity in the face. And in the initial study absolutely no complications, side effects or risks were found. In the second phase of the study female patients will also be assessed for safety – as well as for improvement in “FSFI”: Desire, Lubrication, Orgasm, Arousal, Satisfaction, and Pain.

Vaginal Rejuvenation in Younger Women after Childbirth

Clinical Studies Prove Effectiveness of Vaginal Rejuvenation in Younger Women after Childbirth

Due to a number of cause – from childbirth and aging, to reduced hormone production, to genetics or even trauma – the vagina can become loose and lax over time. The result is often stress urinary incontinence (bladder leaks), itching, burning and dryness, decreased sensation during sex, and painful intercourse.

Previously, these conditions could only be treated with dangerous hormones, or painful and expensive surgery. Recently, however, surgical procedures, medications and topical creams have been replaced with new, noninvasive, energy-based systems of vaginal rejuvenation.

However, a new non-invasive, non-surgical treatment is now available for women seeking to revitalize and strengthen the elasticity of the vaginal wall and improve the natural lubrication of their vaginal tissue. The Geneveve System from Viveve Medical uses a proprietary form of radiofrequency based energy to remodel collagen and restore the tissue in the vaginal.

Two clinical reports have been published demonstrating the effectiveness of Geneveve Vaginal rejuvenation device for treating vaginal laxity following vaginal child birth in women before menopause.

Geneveve Vaginal Rejuvenation Study #1

A pilot clinical study was conducted on 24 women who had delivered children vaginally. The women were between the ages of 25 and 44 years. Reverse gradient radiofrequency energy was delivered through the “vaginal mucosa” (tissue).

Results from the study showed that after only 1 month after vaginal radiofrequency treatment, 67% of the women reported that vaginal tightness had already significantly improved. By 6 months almost 90% of the patients reported a substantial improvement in vaginal tightness.

Additionally, the women also reported that their sexual function had improved. And absolutely no adverse effects or complications were reported during the vaginal rejuvenation study.

Geneveve Vaginal Rejuvenation Study #2

In another clinical study, 30 pre-menopausal women between the ages of 21 and 52 were treated with a single 30-min office treatment using Geneveve radiofrequency Vaginal Rejuvenation. 100% of the patients reported a significant improvement in sexual function at 6 months after treatment, and all of the women also reported a decrease in discomfort and/or pain during sex.

Every participant in the clinical study also reported a decrease vaginal laxity (looseness) within the first month after the treatment, as well as sustained vaginal tightening through 12 months.

Board certified plastic surgeon Doctor Ali stays on the cutting edge of the latest prevention, treatment, and management strategies for women’s vaginal health and wellbeing. The new Geneveve radiofrequency Vaginal Rejuvenation treatment enables women and their physicians to have another treatment option to consider, while weighing the associated risks and benefits.

Choosing the Right Vaginal Rejuvenation Doctor

Choosing a Doctor for Vaginal Rejuvenation

In previous articles we discussed the many different types of vaginal rejuvenation procedures that are now available. From medications, to surgery, to state-of-the-art treatment, a woman now has choices in treating painful intercourse, vaginal looseness or dryness and/or embarrassing bladder leaks.

But the single most important decision a woman will make when considering vaginal rejuvenation is who will perform the procedure.

Obviously, surgical procedures such as labiaplasty and vaginoplasty are complex surgeries requiring highly specialized training and experience to ensure patient safety and achieve a successful outcome. But even non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedures require special training, and should only be performed by a highly experienced, licensed medical provider.

Choosing Your Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment

To begin with, only doctor can help you determine the underlying medical condition causing your vaginal problems – including painful sex or bladder leaks. And diagnosing the underlying cause is essential to choosing the right treatment to restore vaginal and pelvic function.

For example, Geneveve radiofrequency vaginal rejuvenation is very effective in reducing or eliminating bladder leaks due to “stress urinary incontinence” (SUI). But Geneveve treatments do not remedy bladder leaks caused by urge Incontinence (overactive bladder) which is a condition in which the brain, spinal cord and bladder don’t work together properly release urine at the right time.

Since many vaginal rejuvenation treatments are often not covered by health insurance, a woman can end up paying thousands of dollars for the wrong treatment, if it is not properly selected by an experienced women’s health professional.

Choosing Your Vaginal Rejuvenation Doctor

Always check your doctor’s credentials before agreeing to have a vaginal rejuvenation procedure or surgery. Do not have these treatments performed at a spa or other facility without a qualified doctor conducting or supervising the treatment.

Choosing a plastic surgeon like Doctor Ali who is board certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS) is a good place to start. Board certified plastic surgeons undergo a minimum of 1 to 2 years of cosmetic surgery training beyond medical school, and exclusively operate in accredited surgical facilities.

When performed by a highly qualified medical doctor, vaginal rejuvenation procedures can enhance and improve many aspects of a woman’s life. The best way to learn more is to meet with a board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali for a consultation.

Which Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment is Best (Part 1)

Which Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment is Best (Part 1)

Aging, childbearing, and hormonal changes from menopause or certain surgeries, can negatively affect female vaginal tissues in ways that substantial interfere with a woman’s quality of life. “Vaginal rejuvenation” refers to a wide variety of procedures that reshape, tighten, refresh or restore the condition of the vagina.

Doctors can help their patients choose from a variety of vaginal rejuvenation treatments – for cosmetic reasons as well as to improve painful intercourse, reduce vaginal laxity and dryness or stop bladder leaks (stress urinary incontinence). Vaginal rejuvenation procedures range from medication (hormone replacement), to exercise (Kegels), to topical ointments (lubricants), to non-invasive s (non-invasive), to surgery.

So, with so many options, which vaginal rejuvenation treatment is right for you? In this article, Birmingham, MI board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali explains the different vaginal rejuvenation options – and why he prefers radiofrequency Geneveve treatment for vaginal rejuvenation.

Kegel Exercises for Vaginal Rejuvenation

The muscles in the vagina and pelvic floor are like any other muscles – they atrophy (become weaker) over time, especially with reduced use. As the saying goes: “Use it or lose it.” Kegel exercises can indeed help strengthen the muscles within the pelvis and vagina – helping reduce bladder leaks and possible improving vaginal tone.

But Kegel exercises do not restore the collagen that gives the vagina its elasticity and plumpness. Similarly, Kegels do not treat the dryness, itching and painful intercourse caused by reduced lubrication.

Hormone Replacement for Vaginal Rejuvenation

Hormone therapy typically starts with estrogen being applied topically in the vagina, via a cream, a “ring” or a vaginally inserted tablet. If this method is not effective, the women is then typically prescribed hormone pills (oral Estrogen).

The application of vaginal hormones creams and pills is generally unpleasant and messy, and has to be repeated daily.

An even bigger problem with hormones replacement, is the fact that it has been shown to increase the risk of heart attack, breast cancer and strokes. Women at-risk for breast cancer, as well as women who are breast cancer survivors are especially advised to avoid hormone replacement therapy.

Vaginal Suppositories & Creams for Vaginal Rejuvenation

Some natural over-the-counter vaginal suppositories can also provide temporary relief of vaginal dryness and painful intercourse – however they do not reduce bladder leaks. These suppositories may include Vitamin e, Hyaluronic Acid, Boric Acid or certain botanical ingredients.

These suppositories, however, only provide temporary relief, are quite expensive ($25 to $75 per box), can be very messy, and need to be applied daily for continued relief.

Creams containing coconut oil or olive oil to moisturize the vulva area, or use of long-lasting silicone-based lubricants during intercourse can also temporarily make sex less painful. But they do not remedy the underlying problem, and can be very inconvenient and messy to use.

The good news is that doctors can now use new, state-of-the-art, radio frequency vaginal rejuvenation treatment to get rid of the need for dangerous hormones and messy creams – with just a single in-office procedure!

So, with so many options, which vaginal rejuvenation treatment is right for you? In this two part article, Birmingham, MI board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali explains the different vaginal rejuvenation options – and why he prefers radiofrequency Geneveve treatment for vaginal rejuvenation.

Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment

For almost a decade, lasers and radiofrequency have been FDA approved to treat and rejuvenate lax skin on the face and other areas of the body. Now this amazing technology has been formulated to treat vaginal laxity and atrophy in the vagina, as well!

The vagina, like the face, is made up of skin. And all types of skin rely on collagen for elasticity, tone and overall youthfulness.  As we age, and as female hormone production decreases over time, the skin on the face and in the vagina loses its tightness, and becomes dry, and lax.

State of the art radiofrequency technology stimulates the production of collagen in the vagina – “rejuvenating” the tissue to a more firm, plump, elastic and youthful state. This not only improves sexual sensation and performance, but also stops or substantial reduces bladder leaks due to stress incontinence.

There are currently three types of non-surgical treatments “on the market” being used to for vaginal rejuvenation: CO2, YAG and Radiofrequency. They go by various brand names such as MonaLisa, ThermiVeve and Geneveve.

Renowned Detroit area plastic surgeon Doctor Ali has devoted his medical practice to women’s health and well-being. After studying the various vaginal rejuvenation procedures available, he believes that Geneveve by Viveve is the best, most comfortable and most effective vaginal rejuvenation procedure available.

Geneveve is the ONLY vaginal rejuvenation that only requires a single treatment to restore vaginal health. Additionally, only Geneveve has patented cryo-cooling technology incorporated into the treatment to offset the heat of the treatment for a relaxing and pain free experience.

Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery

One would think that a highly skilled cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Ali would be a big advocate of surgery for vaginal rejuvenation. However, as a doctor dedicated to women’s health and wellbeing, he believes that Geneveve vaginal rejuvenation is a preferable option to restore tone and tightness to vulvovaginal areas, in most cases.

While some patients may have extreme situations that mandate the use of surgery for vaginal rejuvenation as a last resort, most of our Detroit area patients can achieve the results they desire with non-surgical Geneveve treatment.

Surgical options for vaginal rejuvenation include Labiaplasty, for sagging, overly large, or misshapen labia that are causing considerable discomfort when wearing certain clothing or exercising, and/or interfering with a woman’s sexual self-confidence.

In other situations, surgical vaginal rejuvenation using vaginoplasty can surgically tightens loose or stretched vaginal muscles. Results from this can last for many years, but is not recommended for women who plan to have more children.

Labiaplasty and vaginoplasty are safe and effective surgical procedures for restoring a more normal tone and appearance to the vagina and labia, when performed by an experienced, board certified cosmetic surgeon, like Dr. Ali.

However, unlike Geneveve  vaginal rejuvenation, these surgeries require “downtime” off work of 3 to 5 days, no exercise for 2 to 3 weeks, and refraining from sexual intercourse for at least a month. Additionally, these procedure require anesthetic, stitches and pain meds – and are significantly more expensive than treatments.  While not an optimal solution for every patient, non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation should be considered first by most women before pursuing surgical options.
