What is Viveve?
Viveve uses radio-frequency deep-heating energy to stimulate your body’s natural collagen formation process. Specially patented cryogen surface cooling technology allows enough heat to be delivered into the vaginal tissue without harming the delicate surface.
How is the treatment delivered?
A small treatment tip, about the size of your thumb, is inserted just inside the vaginal opening. The tip is rotated as it alternately cools the surface and heats the soft tissue beneath. Treatment is painless and takes about 30 – 60 minutes Over the next few months, your body responds to the treatment by generating new collagen and elastin in the vaginal opening.
Is the Viveve treatment safe and effective?
Yes! Clinical studies have shown that the Viveve treatment is safe as well as effective.
What are the results for vaginal laxity and urinary incontinence?
Women feel the full effect after 90 days. Clinical trials show 90% of the women treated for vaginal laxity reported statistically significant tightening, sensation and satisfaction at 12 months. A recent pilot study in women with stress urinary incontinence reported over 90% improvement.
Who can have the Viveve treatment?
Your doctor will determine if Viveve is right for you given your medical history, However, you should NOT consider Viveve if you have an implantable pacemaker or an Automatic Implantable Cardioverter/Defibrillator (AICD) or any other implantable metal device.
Who performs the treatment?
The Viveve treatment is performed by a trained healthcare practitioner at Cosmetech, Maypole Clinic.
