What is Viveve?

Viveve is a safe and effective treatment option that utilizes innovative cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency technology to stimulate the body’s natural collagen formation in order to improve feminine wellness. Viveve is clinically proven to target:

  • Stress of Urge Incontinence (S.U.I.)
  • Vaginal lubrication or painful intercourse
  • Quality and intensity of climax
  • Vaginal sensitivity
  • Vaginal laxity (looseness or overstretched vaginal wall)

The Viveve treatment applies gentle pulses of radio frequency with cutting-edge dual mode equipment. This triggers and accelerates your body’s own collagen formation, generating a more youthful tone and resiliency through softer tissue. This advanced technology cools and protects the procedural surface while heating and energizing deeper tissue, providing a safe and efficient treatment.

Viveve procedural sessions require no anesthesia and are completely painless. After receiving a Viveve treatment, patients do not require any downtime. They may resume their regular activities the same day as treatment. Women looking to improve post-childbirth vaginal laxity, decrease incontinence or heighten sensation during sex may finally obtain the long-lasting results they desire through Viveve’s unique treatment option.

Who is a good candidate for Viveve?

Vaginal Laxity and Urinary Incontinence

Women struggling with a strong need to urinate and difficulty getting to the toilet in time, maybe suffering from urge incontinence. This difficulty is somewhat similar to stress incontinence, the inability to prevent leaking urine when coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising. These forms of urinary incontinence are more common among women, especially postpartum, postmenopausal, and menopausal women. Incontinence in menopausal and postmenopausal women is most often due to decreased levels of collagen and the deterioration of estrogen. This reduces the vulvovaginal mucosa and leads to vaginal laxity. The clinically proven Viveve treatment option can improve urinary incontinence by tackling vaginal laxity through a non-invasive, low-risk application of heat to the vaginal wall. As the collagen tissue is repaired and regenerated, the vaginal wall becomes more toned and flexible, helping improve your body’s ability to properly manage urine flow.

Post-Childbirth Vaginal Laxity

Following childbirth, women often struggle with vaginal laxity; a common difficulty that can cause reduced sexual sensitivity and urinary incontinence. This vaginal looseness and overstretched tissue often result from the expansion of the vagina to accommodate a baby while it makes its way through the birth canal. Whether it’s your first baby or your fifth. Mothers suffering from the symptoms of vaginal laxity can see improvements following just one Viveve treatment. As soon as 8 to 12 weeks following childbirth, mothers looking for enhanced feminine wellness can receive innovative treatment and find rejuvenated vaginal sensitivity and decreased laxity.

Sexual Sensitivity

Vaginal laxity may often affect women in regards to decrease vaginal sensitivity or inadequate climax sensations during sex. The instigation of these detriments may stem from a variety of conditions. Including a hormone imbalance, age a medical condition, or following childbirth. A lack of vaginal rigidity and sensitivity can cause difficulties in sexual stimulation over time, but thankfully the innovative Viveve treatment option may provide desired improvements. Viveve applies radio frequencies to repair existing tissue to help restore the elastin and collagen that make for a healthy, tight and sensitive vagina. This stimulation can help improve the quality and intensity of climaxes while creating a more sensational experience for you and your partner. By generating a natural rejuvenation of your tissue, Viveve encourages the vaginal wall to provide more lubrication and sensitivity during sex while providing long-lasting and effective results.  



Q: What is Radio Frequency technology?

A: Medical applications have utilized radio frequency (RF) technology for over 75 years. The radiofrequency device produces a heating of the collagen helix in the applied area, causing proteins to reform and rebuild. Systems applying radiofrequency have been successfully used for atrophic scar revision, inflammatory acne, non-ablative skin rejuvenation, vascular lesions, and treatment of unwanted hair.

Q: Can I go back to work right after the treatment?

Q; How long do the results last?

Q: How many applications of the Viveve treatment will I need to do before I can see results?

A: One application! That’s correct, unlike other medical devices that utilize radio frequency pulses to improve vaginal collagen and elastin, the more advanced and effective Viveve treatment requires only one 30 minute treatment to see noticeable results.
