Over the course of a woman’s life, she may suffer from several different vaginal health issues. Most commonly, childbirth, active lifestyles, menopause, weight fluctuations or a shift in hormones can lead to loosening of the vaginal muscles and related concerns, such as stress incontinence, a loss of sexual pleasure and a decrease in sensation. These issues not only affect us physically but all mentally by limiting our ability to live our best lives. Viveve® is a nonsurgical intimate wellness treatment for vaginal laxity that can be completed in just 50 minutes without any scars or downtime.
Viveve does not require local or general anesthesia, as the procedure itself should not be uncomfortable. You may feel a slight warming sensation during treatment. The Viveve device delivers controlled volumetric heating to safely stimulate vaginal tissue.
Many women who feel that they’ve lost some vaginal tightness can be excellent candidates for Viveve treatments. Some of the most common reasons to consider Viveve include:
Treatments are safe as well as effective, and should not cause any discomfort. During the actual treatment, a small and smooth specialized instrument is gently inserted about an inch or two into the vagina with the use of lubrication. The device then emits various impulses of energy, triggering the natural production of collagen along the vaginal walls. Patients experience a warm or cool sensation during this process, however it is not painful. There is no downtime following treatment, and patients are allowed to resume normal activities following treatment. The revitalizing results following the procedure are immediate and progress over time.
Although individual experiences vary, most women begin to notice results around 30 days after your Viveve treatment.* Your results may continue to develop over about 3 months. Most women only require a single Viveve treatment session.
