The Viveve ™ vaginal rejuvenation treatment is designed to benefit women by improving their health and quality of life. It is a state-of-the-art treatment designed to restore vaginal tightness, and address stress urinary incontinence in 1 safe and effective treatment. Women who are experiencing vaginal laxity, loss of moisture or stress incontinence due to aging or childbirth can often benefit from this procedure.
There are many changes that women’s bodies go through throughout her lifetime, which include the decline of the vaginal lining due to the slowdown of collagen production. When collagen fibers decrease, the walls in the vagina lose their tautness. Pregnancy, childbirth, age, and genetic disposition can make the laxity more pronounced. Laxity in the vaginal walls can also decrease vaginal sensation and satisfaction during sexual intercourse disrupting a woman’s sexual confidence and sexual health. There are a number of reasons why we chose the Viveve ™ treatment over other non-surgical devices as well; Viveve ™ treatment offers a single treatment due to it’s patented cooling that allows for a comfortable and deeper treatment resulting in long-term results versus coming in for multiple treatments. It is also a much less intrusive procedure than other devices and the ONLY device currently seeking FDA approval for treatment of sexual function.
The Viveve ™ treatment is designed to benefit thousands of women and improved their health and quality of life. It is a state-of-the-art treatment designed to restore vaginal tightness, and address stress urinary incontinence (SUI) unlike any other device out there. The Viveve ™ treatment uses clinically-proven cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) to uniformly deliver gentle volumetric heating while cooling delicate surface tissue. This unique technology stimulates the body’s natural collagen formation process. Because Viveve ™ uses tiny pulses of gentle energy, the right amount of heat – for the right amount of time – is delivered to reinvigorate tissue. Unlike the alternatives, this treatment is more comfortable and only requires a single-session, 45-minute or 1 hr 15min treatment for tightening and strengthening tissue. We encourage you to take advantage of New2You’s free consultation to determine if Viveve ™ may be the right treatment for you.
New2You Skin and Body assesses each patient’s goals and expectations prior to the procedure and also defines a baseline for your areas of concern. We will review the systems capabilities and clarify with you the expectations of the treatment.
The treatment itself is quick and is performed in our office, and lasts anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and fifteen minutes depending on treatment goals. Anesthetic isn’t needed for the procedure. We take extensive measures to ensure that the treatment area is cleansed before the treatment begins. The instrument head is smooth and about the size and outline of a toothbrush head. Using lubricant, it is inserted just an inch or two to treat the muscles in the entry of the vagina. Patients will notice a warm or cool sensation during the procedure, but should not feel any pain. During the procedure, the device will emit pulses of monoplar energy, penetrating 3mm to 5mm of connective tissue. This helps stimulate collagen production in the vaginal walls.
There is no downtime associated with the procedure and you are able to resume all of your normal activities immediately following, although we do recommend two days without intercourse. Side effects that may occur include mild redness, swelling, or a tingling sensation after treatment, which should resolve quickly. An extensive overview of side effects is provided upon completion of the procedure. All Viveve™ patients are provided with Dr. Rosalyn George’s personal contact information if any concerns arise outside of normal business hours.
Results from this treatment are both immediate and progressive. You should notice an increase in nerve sensitivity and strong muscle contractions, along with increased lubrication and reduction of urinary leakage.
