Your Procedure Options
Vaginal rejuvenation focuses on the vaginal canal, a delicate area that can be stretched or damaged as the result of childbirth, aging, or other factors. Surgical vaginal rejuvenation at our Santa Rosa practice can make sexual activity more enjoyable for both you and your partner, boosting your personal confidence and enhancing your overall well-being.
Labiaplasty addresses the external genital area, collectively called the vulva. Many women are bothered by labia minora (inner lips) that are stretched or asymmetrical, while others may feel self-conscious of large or sagging labia majora (outer lips). Still other women may wish to augment their labia majora with fat grafting for a more pronounced appearance. These procedures, which may be performed together, are highly customizable. Our surgeons adjust their surgical techniques to suit your specific wishes.
Geneveve, from Viveve, is a unique treatment created for improving muscle tone and vaginal tightness without painful surgery or an extensive recovery. After a single radio frequency (RF) treatment, vaginal tightness can improve significantly. Vaginal lubrication will also increase, thus reducing painful intercourse for more enticing sexual intimacy. Most women can see this dramatic improvement in vaginal health, as well as increased sexual wellness, last for up to twelve months before a repeat treatment is needed. As the Geneveve technique is considered pain-free, no anesthesia is required. Women are back to their normal routine the same afternoon.
FemTouch is a noninvasive method designed to increase vaginal health. With the natural aging process, the vaginal muscles can become loose and lax. Utilizing a cutting-edge CO₂ laser, FemTouch brings soft ablation to vaginal tissues, increasing muscle strength. The non-hormonal treatment will dramatically increase vaginal laxity, eliminate dryness, improve bladder control (reducing stress incontinence), and ease pain or discomfort during intercourse. The laser treatment takes only a few minutes to perform. After two to four painless treatments, most women will note a significant improvement in vaginal muscle tone that increases their self-confidence and improves intimate relationships.
ThermiVa provides complete vaginal rejuvenation by improving both muscle tone and the aesthetic appearance of the labia majora. Using heat from radiofrequency waves, ThermiVa provides women with a noninvasive option, without the downtime associated with surgery. A series of three treatments, spread approximately a month apart, can increase sexual sensations, as well as reverse the stress-induced incontinence that accompanies lax vaginal tissues. The in-office treatment can also be used to improve the look of stretched or distorted labia majora. The benefits of ThermiVa can be seen right away, and will continue to increase over the following several months.
