What is AVIVA?

AVIVA is a minimally invasive and non-excisional alternative to labiaplasty. Treatments with AVIVA  at Modern Women's Health can be truly life-changing for women who are unhappy with the appearance of their genital area, or who have discomfort in the area.

AVIVA for Labial Enlargement

Labial enlargement, dangling, or redundancy of the inner lips/labia minora can make women uncomfortable in their clothes, cause rubbing during active sports and/or discomfort with intercourse. Labiaplasty/labia minora reduction can be performed to reduce the excess tissue and complications are rare but can include scarring, bleeding, infection, and excess removal of tissue. It can be done under local or general anesthesia. Dr. Jukes also offers non-surgical reduction of labial tissue with the AVIVA procedure. 

AVIVA is based on FDA-approved radiofrequency technology to heat the tissue internally and externally of the mons, labia majora, labia minora, clitoral hood, and vaginal opening to cause retraction of the tissue over time.  It is combined with Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling to enhance the results. The AVIVA procedure is performed in the office by Dr. Jukes under local anesthesia. FormaV Votiva also helps to improve the appearance and feel of the labia, and is a completely non-invasive procedure done in the office.

Why Choose AVIVA?

Many women are unhappy with the appearance or feeling of their labia, which can be overly elongated, large, or irregular. This can be an issue that a woman has had since birth, or it can often occur later in life due to age or childbirth. Disliking your own vagina, whether it’s the way it looks or the way it feels, can have a significantly negative impact on your self-image, happiness, and confidence.

It can be emotionally stressful, as well as uncomfortable while exercising, having intercourse, or wearing certain clothing.

Getting AVIVA in Austin can greatly help these problems, and is an excellent option for women who would prefer a non-surgical option for treatment.

Am I a Candidate for AVIVA?

If you’re interested in non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation with AVIVA in the Bee Cave and Westlake, TX area, it may be the ideal treatment for your needs. Women who make excellent candidates for AVIVA are those who:

  • Are overall healthy individuals 
  • Are unhappy with the appearance of their vaginal area
  • Find that their vaginal area causes discomfort
  • Are not pregnant or nursing
  • Do not have any electronic implants
  • Have never had cancer in the vaginal area
  • Do not have an immunosuppressive condition 
  • Fully understand the AVIVA procedure, risks, and recovery process

How does AVIVA Work?

AVIVA uses a process known as radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL), which is applied both internally and externally to tighten the tissues and skin for a much improved vaginal appearance. The procedure removes unwanted tissue through small incisions (which means less downtime than surgery) and tightens and shrinks the tissue. Internal radiofrequency thermal energy is introduced via a needle-sized introducer to achieve significant tightening, lifting, and retraction of vulva tissue and around the vaginal opening.

Dr. Jukes has noted the typical improvement to be a 30%-45% reduction in labial hypertrophy and retraction of surrounding tissues, in particular the clitoral hood. It is, in her opinion, a great way to 1) address overall laxity from aging, genetics, and activities such as horseback riding and biking and 2) avoid surgical scars/recovery.

It is Dr. Jukes’s preferred way to address elongation of the clitoral hood, as clitoral hood resection is typically considered higher risk than just surgical labiaplasty. It can be repeated in the future. Results are expected to last 3-5 years for most patients, with yearly FormaV maintenance to help continue to stimulate ongoing collagen/elastin formation to prolong results.

Some patients choose to have AVIVA in Austin, then in three months undergo surgical labiaplasty or vice versa because they are complimentary for certain patients that have more than just elongation of the labia minora.

AVIVA Treatment

AVIVA treatments are performed in-office — as a one-time procedure — with the patient under a combination of injectable anesthesia and oral pain relief. Treatments typically take approximately 90 minutes and are personalized to meet each patient’s specific needs. Once you are numb, very small incisions will be created in different areas of the vagina. The AVIVA device has a very small probe that will be gently inserted into these tiny incisions.  

This probe will deliver radiofrequency heat energy to both the interior and the exterior of the vagina, causing the tissue to contract and shrink, and also stimulating brand-new collagen growth. This is immediately followed by Morpheus8™ microneedling. The AVIVA technology has been developed with safety and comfort in mind, with an internal temperature monitor to keep the temperature at a safe yet effective level during the treatments.
