WHAT IS THE VIVEVE® SYSTEM?
The Viveve® System provides the only single treatment option to resolve vaginal laxity, incontinence, and dryness. It is a fantastic choice for women who desire a one-time 25-minute procedure to improve symptoms of laxity or loss of sensation, urge incontinence, stress incontinence, and overactive bladder. The treatment uses clinically-proven cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) to uniformly deliver gentle volumetric heating while cooling delicate surface tissue. This unique technology stimulates the body’s natural collagen formation process. Doctors and patients report this procedure using The Viveve® System delivers a noticeable tightening of the entire vaginal barrel for increased friction and pleasure during sexual intimacy, greater bladder control, and more youthful vaginal tissue.
We believe in VIVEVE™
There are many changes a women’s body goes through throughout her lifetime, which include the decline of the vaginal lining due to the slowdown of collagen production. When collagen fibers decrease, the walls in the vagina lose their tautness. Pregnancy, childbirth, age, and genetic disposition can make the laxity more pronounced. Laxity in the vaginal walls can also decrease vaginal sensation and satisfaction during sexual intercourse disrupting a woman’s sexual confidence and sexual health.
There are a number of reasons why we chose the Viveve™ treatment over other non-surgical devices as well; Viveve™ treatment offers a single treatment due to it’s patented cooling that allows for a comfortable and deeper treatment resulting in long-term results versus coming in for multiple treatments. It is also a much less intrusive procedure than other devices and the ONLY device currently seeking FDA approval for treatment of sexual function.
The Viveve™ treatment is designed to benefit thousands of women and improve their health and quality of life. It is a state-of-the-art treatment designed to restore vaginal tightness, and address stress urinary incontinence (SUI) unlike any other device out there. The Viveve™ treatment uses clinically-proven cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) to uniformly deliver gentle volumetric heating while cooling delicate surface tissue. This unique technology stimulates the body’s natural collagen formation process.
Because Viveve™ uses tiny pulses of gentle energy, the right amount of heat – for the right amount of time – is delivered to reinvigorate tissue. Unlike the alternatives, this treatment is more comfortable and only requires a single-session for tightening and strengthening the tissue. We encourage you to take advantage of our free consultation to determine if Viveve™ may be the right treatment for you.
With just one comfortable 30-minute treatment we’ll get you back to your regular activities immediately and on your way to feeling even more sensational.
The Viveve™ treatment stimulates the body’s own renewal response to gradually restore healthy collagen and to give soft tissue a youthful tone and resiliency. The dual-mode Viveve treatment cools and protects the surface while heating deeper tissue. Because Viveve uses tiny pulses of gentle energy, the right amount of heat – for the right amount of time – is delivered to reinvigorate tissue.
No magic – just safe, effective and comfortable gentle heating and surface cooling.
DOES THE VIVEVE® TREATMENT REQUIRE DOWNTIME?
We’ll assess each patient’s goals and expectations prior to the procedure and also define a baseline for your areas of concern. We will review the system’s capabilities and clarify with you the expectations of the treatment.
The treatment itself is quick and is performed in our office, and lasts anywhere from 30 t0 35 minutes depending on treatment goals. Anesthetic isn’t needed for the procedure. We take extensive measures to ensure that the treatment area is cleansed before the treatment begins. The instrument head is smooth and about the size and outline of a toothbrush head. Using lubricant, it is inserted just an inch or two to treat the muscles in the entry of the vagina. Patients will notice a warm or cool sensation during the procedure, but should not feel any pain.
During the procedure, the device will emit pulses of monoplar energy, penetrating 3mm to 5mm of connective tissue. This helps stimulate collagen production in the vaginal walls.
There is no downtime associated with the procedure and you are able to resume all of your normal activities immediately following, although we do recommend two days without intercourse. Side effects that may occur include mild redness, swelling, or a tingling sensation after treatment, which should resolve quickly. An extensive overview of side effects is provided upon completion of the procedure.
Results from this treatment are both immediate and progressive. You should notice an increase in nerve sensitivity and strong muscle contractions, along with increased lubrication and reduction of urinary leakage.
