NeuViVa – CO2 Fractional Laser and Radiofrequency
What is NeuViVa and How Does it Work?
NeuViVa is the latest FDA-approved intravaginal laser for the treatment of vaginal atrophy. Mona Lisa Touch and ThermiVa were a great introduction to helping women, but now there is even more technology offering greater improvement which is NeuViVa.
NeuViva feminine laser and RF rejuvenation, is a simple and effective solution for improving feminine health. A quick and painless treatment, NeuViva is designed to restore your patients’ well-being and confidence.
Vaginal health issues such as dryness or burning are commonly seen in post-menopausal women, but can affect any woman who has had a hysterectomy or cancer therapy. There are many reasons why this condition can occur and it affects millions of women. The NeuViva treatment delivers laser energy to the vaginal wall to promote vaginal epithelial revitalization and a return to vaginal health. The results are lasting. IntraGen radiofrequency (RF) can be used to tighten up the labia majora and minora.
The Laser Component Of NeuViva
NeuViva utilizes fractional CO2 laser technology to improve blood circulation and stimulate collagen production that thickens vaginal lining, thereby improving vaginal thinning, vaginal dryness and painful vaginal sex. A tissue regeneration process is triggered with each laser treatment. The vaginal mucosa becomes more nourished and hydrated and the epithelium becomes thicker, more toned and elastic. The correct vaginal pH becomes re-established, which helps maintain its natural protective barrier and reduces the risk of infection. Enhanced vaginal tissues at the urethral opening reduce urinary frequency problems. NeuViva provides a safe, effective, and efficient alternative to estrogen.
The 4th Generation Radiofrequency Component Of NeuViva
NeuViva utilizes fractional Radiofrequency (RF) technology that spreads heat on the vaginal tissue and the urethra to lift and tighten the vagina. RF is more suited for patients with vaginal looseness, stress urinary incontinence and bladder control. Many women also prefer RF for labial shrinkage and lift.
What Does the Procedure Entail?
Dr. Thomas has extensive experience in providing NeuViva and teaches other physicians how to perform the procedure. Treatment is minimally invasive, pain-free and administered in the office without the use of anesthesia. Dr. Thomas inserts the NeuViVa probe into the vaginal canal, where it pulses energy throughout the area. The entire procedure takes just 5-10 minutes. Patients should refrain from sex for a few days following the procedure but can resume other daily activities immediately.
What Results Can I Expect?
Most women experience some immediate reduction in such symptoms as vaginal dryness, itching, burning, and pain during intercourse. But optimum benefits require three follow-up treatments, scheduled several weeks apart. Improvement continues to increase for about five months following treatment. After that, patients undergo one annual treatment to maintain benefits. Some 90% of women using the NeuViVa systems report a substantial improvement in their symptoms.
