What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation refers to any type of surgical or non-surgical procedure or treatment used to revitalize the look and feel of the vagina. Only V-REVIVE offers all non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments that require very little downtime and are virtually painless. Treatments can improve vaginal conditions, tighten the vagina, improve the appearance of the labia and vulva, improve sensation of the clitoris, improve hyperpigmentation of the vulva and more.
Am I a Good Candidate for Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Are you bothered by vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, incontinence or cystitis? Do you want to enhance sexual function, intensify orgasm or improve your quality of life? If you have answered “yes!” to any of these questions, V-REVIVE can help!
Symptoms we treat:
- Vaginal dryness and discomfort
- Vaginal itching and burning
- Vaginal laxity, look and feel
- Painful intercourse
- Urinary incontinence (urgency, frequency)
- Interstitial Cystitis
- Chronic bladder infections
- Lichen Sclerosis
These symptoms are often caused by:
- Decreased estrogen: causes include menopause/perimenopause, breastfeeding, cancer treatments (especially breast cancer), including chemotherapy and anti-estrogen therapy
- Childbirth and aging: loss of vaginal tone, vaginal laxity, poor sensation, urinary incontinence, cystitis
- Genetics (look and feel): sagging vulvar skin, wrinkling, enlarged labia, excessive tissue covering the clitoris, poor vaginal tone
- Severe weight loss
Am I a Candidate If I'm Post-Menopausal?

Am I a Good Candidate if I've Had a Hysterectomy?

Do You Advise Treatment After Childbirth?
We advise you wait three months and have been cleared by your OBGYN.
Who Will Be Performing the V-Revive Treatment(s)?
V-REVIVE Specialists perform treatments, and work with you to create a personalized treatment plan for your individual needs.
V-REVIVE Specialists are female nurses that are certified and personally trained by Dr. Robert Harris (Chief Medical Director and Founder) and Meg Foster, RN, BSN (Chief Nursing Officer). Learn more.
Will I Experience Pain?
You may experience minor discomfort, especially with the laser handpiece insertion due to vaginal dryness. Overall, our non-surgical treatments are virtually painless, and patients say the most they feel is a “light vibration.”
What Side Effects Should I Expect?
Side effects differ between treatments. Some might include vaginal spotting, mild vaginal bleeding, burning upon urination, mild cramping and discomfort. As the area heals these symptoms will subside. Our V-REVIVE Specialists will work with you on a post-treatment plan to minimize these side effects.
What Is The Downtime Associated with Having the Treatments?
With very little downtime, you can return to everyday activities immediately following treatment. You must refrain from some things after treatment, and that varies by treatment. Learn more.
What If I Am Menstruating?
We do not advise you to have a treatment during your period. The blood may interfere with the penetration of the laser into the vaginal skin, making it less effective.
How Long After a Treatment Before I Can Have Intercourse?
This varies by treatment. For example, following the O-Shot® you may resume sexual activity the same day, but after CO2RE® Intima you should refrain from sexual activity for five days. A V-REVIVE Specialist will thoroughly go over the post-treatment plans with you.
How Much Does It Cost?
Costs vary based on each treatment and each patient’s individual needs. Our V-REVIVE Specialists offer free consultations, and financing options are available for qualifying patients.
