Viveve: a Novel Treatment for Vaginal Laxity
Viveve provides an office-based non-surgical, painless medical treatment for treating vaginal laxity.
Viveve System works by cooling and gently heating vaginal tissue and increases feelings of vaginal tightness and improve sexual satisfaction.
The Viveve Treatment for Vaginal Laxity
The Viveve Treatment is not cosmetic; instead, it works at the cellular level to rebuild and restore collagen and as a result can increase feelings of vaginal tightness and improve sexual satisfaction.
Because the treatment is usually completed in 30 minutes, it generally doesn’t require anesthesia, there is little-to-no downtime – normal activities are resumed following the procedure.
At the beginning of the procedure, the doctor will insert a treatment tip, about the size of your thumb, just inside the vaginal opening. The tip is circumferentially moved around the opening, delivering pulses of radiofrequency energy to the collagen fibers that make up the underlying tissues, while also cooling the vaginal surface.
Vaginal tissue reacts to the energy by stimulating the formation of new collagen fibers restoring the tissue1. This collagen restoration process takes place over time, usually between 30-90 days after the treatment. The changes occur on the cellular level, so there are no outward signs of change to the vaginal tissue.
Women who experience laxity may also notice a decreased feeling of sensation and sexual satisfaction during intercourse. These changes can affect a woman’s overall sexual health and quality of life.
Side effects seldom occur and are typically mild, temporary, and resolve shortly after treatment. They can include: slight, white vaginal discharge; redness or swelling; slight abdominal discomfort, focal, transient altered sensation and tingling following treatment.
