Why do women consider Viveve?
Just like skin, vaginal tissue relies on collagen for its support. With the normal aging process or physical impact from childbearing, the tissue can become stretched and weakened. The result is a feeling of vaginal looseness called laxity, the side effects of which can be diminished physical sensation during intercourse and urinary incontinence. Vaginal changes can occur at any time for a wide variety of reasons. Women in all different age groups consider Viveve and other vaginal rejuvenation techniques.
What is Viveve?
Viveve is a treatment that uses gentle deep heating and surface cooling to stimulate the body’s natural collagen formation process. It is a comfortable, single-session, 30-minute treatment. Geneveve does not require local or topical anesthesia or analgesics and is performed by a trained healthcare professional in our comfortable office.
About the Viveve treatment
Viveve works at a cellular level to rebuild and restore collagen within the vaginal tissue – without surgery and without disrupting the surface tissue. During one 30-minute office visit, the Viveve treatment delivers patented, dual-mode deep heating and surface cooling to stimulate the body’s own natural regenerative processes.
How Viveve Works
The Viveve treatment is a respectful, comfortable, 30-minute, single-session, in-office treatment that does not require local or topical numbing medication. At the beginning of the procedure, the practitioner inserts a treatment tip (the size of a thumb) just inside the vaginal opening. This tip is circumferentially rotated around the opening of the vagina delivering just the right delivery of alternating pulses of heating and cooling. The vaginal tissue reacts to the heat by replenishing new youthful, cushioning collagen within the tissue. Everyone’s baseline level of laxity and natural response mechanisms vary but results typically peak at about 90 days and are still evident at 12 months.
Alternatives to this treatment
Other noninvasive options can provide improvements of vaginal laxity, incontinence, dryness, itching, discomfort and sensation. Femilift and THERMIva are also good options. Some patients combine treatments to get even better results.
