As women undergo childbirth and age, they can experience a loss of strength in their vaginal tissue, which is mainly due to a loss of collagen or altered connective tissue. This can cause what is known as vaginal laxity which can result in decreased sensation and pleasure with intercourse, as well as urinary incontinence (leaking). The Viveve System is designed to treat these issues and works via a small probe that's inserted into the vagina, which emits radio-frequency waves to heat the tissue and prompt the production of new collagen. This effectively allows women's vaginas to regain their prior structure and function, restoring sensation, decreasing laxity and alleviating urinary leakage.
The difference between the Viveve System and other radio-frequency devices is that it uses cryogen-cooled monopolar radio frequency (CMRF) technology, which enables the device to produce significant, sustained collagen changes, as the cooling component allows it to reach deeper layers of tissue for an extended period of time without causing burns or damage to the mucosa. The cooling also makes the procedure completely comfortable and virtually pain-free for the patient.
"The treatment only takes 30-45 minutes, so women can have it done on their lunch break and return to work with no limitations," says Valencia, CA obgyn Courtenay Poucher, MD. "Most women begin noticing improvement within 30 days, but the body can take up to 90 days to achieve complete results, which last a year or longer." - (replace with quote from local doctor)
"This treatment was so amazing and easy! I only needed one session, which was great to not have to go back and forth. What made me really happy was that it was painless and had no downtime! Right away I noticed I didn't have any leakage when I exercised! It was a win-win situation!" - (Replace with quote from local patient)
The Viveve System is indicated for the treatment of vaginal laxity, sexual function or urinary incontinence in more than 60 countries, and use in general surgery for electrocoagulation and hemostasis in the U.S.
