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. The Viveve treatment applies gentle pulses of radio frequency with cutting-edge dual mode equipment to trigger and accelerate 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 is clinically proven to target:
– Vaginal sensitivity
– Vaginal lubrication and reducing painful intercourse
– The quality and intensity of climax
– Stress or urge urinary incontinence
– Vaginal laxity (looseness or overstretched vaginal wall)
We are proud to become one of Ontario’s first Viveve providers to offer the Viveve treatment. Following just one 60-minute treatment, patients can already notice significant improvements in sexual health, stress urinary incontinence, and vaginal laxity. The technology’s cutting-edge dual mode applies gentle pulses of radio frequency to trigger and accelerate your body’s own collagen development, generating softer tissue and a more youthful tone and resiliency.
A trained health care professional utilizes the clinically proven and innovative treatment technology during a 60-minute treatment session to stimulate the body’s natural collagen formation. The advanced procedure both cools and protects the procedural surface while heating and revitalizing deeper tissue. After receiving a Viveve treatment, patients require no downtime and may continue regular activities the same day as treatment. Procedure sessions require no anesthesia and are completely painless.
Who is a good candidate for Viveve?
Post-Childbirth Vaginal Laxity
New mothers often experience a relaxing of tissue resulting from the expansion of the vagina to accommodate a baby while it makes its way through the birth canal known as vaginal laxity. This condition can lead to a decline in female sexual function, poor body image and overall reduced quality of life. Thankfully, the new Viveve treatment can aid those who are struggling, regardless of if it’s after their first baby or their fifth. Mothers noticing difficulties with vaginal looseness and overstretched tissue following childbirth often may experience urinary incontinence and/or reduced sexual sensitivity. Fortunately, Viveve can now help them reach the improvements they have been searching for as soon as 8 to 12 weeks following childbirth.
Decreased vaginal sensitivity or inadequate climax are some of the negative symptoms caused by vaginal laxity. 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. A variety of conditions may be the source of these determinants, including age, hormone imbalance, following childbirth, or a medical condition. The stimulation delivered during the procedure can help improve the quality and intensity of climaxes while creating a more sensational experience for you and your partner. Viveve applies radio frequencies to repair existing tissue to help restore the elastin and collagen that make for a healthy, tight and sensitive vagina. By generating a natural rejuvenation of your tissue, Viveve provides long lasting and effective results by encouraging the vaginal wall to provide more lubrication and sensitivity during sex.
Vaginal Laxity and Urinary Incontinence
Stress incontinence is the inability to prevent leaking urine when coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising. Women may also deal with a strong need to urinate, but struggle getting to the toilet in time, this is referred to as urge incontinence. These forms of urinary incontinence are more common among women, especially menopausal, postpartum or postmenopausal women. Most often incontinence in menopausal and postmenopausal women is due to vaginal laxity from a decrease in collagen and the deterioration of estrogen levels, which reduce the vulvo-vaginal mucosa. The Viveve treatment stimulates collagen growth to improve vaginal laxity through a non-invasive, low-risk application of heat to the vaginal wall. As the tissue replenishes, the vaginal wall becomes more pliant and supple, and the tightness improves your body’s ability to properly manage urine flow.
Q: How long is the Viveve treatment?
A: The non-invasive, low-risk procedure takes approximately 45-60 minutes to complete in our office.
Q: Can I go back to work right after the treatment?
A: Yes. In most cases, you can return to normal activity immediately following your treatment.
Q: What is Radio Frequency technology?
A: Radio frequency (RF) technology has been used in medical applications for over 75 years. Systems based on radio frequency have been successfully used for non-ablative skin rejuvenation, treatment of unwanted hair, atrophic scar revision, inflammatory acne and vascular lesions. The radio frequency device produces a heating of the collagen helix in the applied area, causing proteins to reform and rebuild.
Q: Is the treatment painful?
A: During the treatment, most women experience a sensation of heating and cooling, but usually no discomfort or pain.
Q: Are there any side effects during or after the treatment?
A: Most women don’t experience any side effects during the procedure or afterward.
