We are pleased to be one of the Richmond area’s only providers of non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation! Our ReVive treatment addresses external vaginal laxity of the labia majora and the labia minora. It is indicated for patients with loose, sagging skin on the vulval tissue.
Why Vaginal Rejuvenation
Labia laxity is a common problem among women. It can be a result of the natural aging process, childbirth, genetics, trauma or serious weight loss. Patients who present after weight loss would be more optimal while patients with genetic anatomical symptoms may exhibit more limited response.
ReVive utilizes a bipolar radio frequency configuration for a comfortable, no-downtime treatment option. Radio frequency skin tightening relies heavily on the moisture and hydration level of the tissue being treated. The labia’s natural moisture content and the area’s intrinsic hydration make treatments to this skin particularly responsive and effective.
Who are the Ideal Candidates for a Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedure?
If you are among the thousands of women who suffer from lax vaginal tissue due to aging, childbirth, weight loss or other conditions, ReVive can help restore youthfulness and increase your sexual confidence. This procedure can also eliminate the worry and irritation associated with wearing tight clothing.
Radio frequency vaginal rejuvenation has revolutionized the non-surgical option to labiaplasty, which involves downtime, pain and potential loss of sensation. ReVive utilizes an electrical current to heat the vulvar tissue to induce collagen remodeling resulting in smoother, tighter, softer labia. Most importantly, ReVive is safe and effective.
Are There Disadvantages to a ReVive Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedure?
Our Richmond area patients love ReVive for vaginal rejuvenation because it has no real disadvantages. It is safe, effective, comfortable, and non-surgical! A clinical study found that the majority of women were satisfied or very satisfied with their results. The treatment was also well tolerated by everyone, and no side effects were recorded. ReVive is not a quick fix for skin laxity, however, and it does take a series of sessions to achieve the desired improvement. It cannot always achieve the same dramatic results as surgery, and therefore may not be appropriate for patients with significantly loose tissue.
What Should I Do Before ReVive Treatment?
Before treatment, patients will review and sign a consent form, making sure that no contraindications exist that would impair treatment. The ReVive treatment guidelines and protocols will also be discussed with your esthetician prior to beginning treatment.
Before each treatment, patients are responsible for thoroughly cleansing the area and making sure the labia are completely shaved. Shaving should be done at least 24 hours prior to each appointment. Hair may interfere with the electrodes and the treatment efficacy.
Immediately prior to each treatment session, the labia will be cleansed with a non-alcohol based solution. Ultrasound gel will be applied throughout the treatment. The skin tightening electrodes are placed against the vulvar tissue with slight pressure throughout several passes. The patient will experience a very comfortable warming sensation along with mild pressure from the device. Following the treatment, patients can immediately return to their normal activities.
What Should I Expect from the Procedure?
Treatments generally take 30 minutes to perform. The treatment schedule is once every 2-3 weeks and a series of 6 is typically recommended. Some patients will achieve satisfactory results in fewer sessions. Maintenance sessions may be followed once every 6 months, especially for patients with loose skin due to aging. Patients who finish the series after pregnancy may not require maintenance. This can be determined by the patient.
What should I avoid after a ReVive rejuvenation treatment?
One of the best things about ReVive is that it is a downtime-free treatment. You can immediately return to your daily routine after a session. Patients are cleared to go back to work, take an exercise class, and even have sexual intercourse. You won’t need to change your schedule or avoid any activities after ReVive vaginal rejuvenation.
Is a ReVive treatment painful?
ReVive vaginal rejuvenation is not painful. In fact, it uses the industry’s most comfortable radio frequency technology. There are no incisions, You can expect to feel a gentle warming sensation during your treatment. Most patients pass the time by reading a book or checking their emails.
How much does a ReVive treatment cost?
The cost of your Revive treatment will depend on factors such as the experience level of your provider and the location of their practice. It will also come down to the number of sessions needed to treat your labial laxity and achieve your desired results. Insurance is unlikely to cover radiofrequency treatments for cosmetic vaginal rejuvenation. At Zinsser Plastic Surgery, we accept financing and run specials on our treatments and procedures. We’re happy to talk to you about fitting ReVive into your budget.
How long will my ReVive vaginal rejuvenation results last?
Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments are not permanent like their surgical counterparts. However, they can still offer long-lasting results. That is because they encourage the production of your own natural collagen. Most of our ReVive patients schedule maintenance sessions every 6 months to enjoy seamless and consistent improvement. However, patients who finish their treatment series after pregnancy may not need any follow-up sessions. We will explain what you can expect in your unique situation. Keep in mind that things like future pregnancies, aging, significant weight fluctuations, and other life changes can impact your ReVive results. We will discuss these considerations with you as well.
