Geneveve™ by Viveve is a safe, clinically-proven treatment to tighten and reinvigorate vaginal tissue. Through aging, childbirth, genetics, and lifestyle, vaginal laxity (looseness) can occur, especially around the vaginal opening. For many women this can cause a decrease in sexual satisfaction and urinary incontinence. Geneveve™ by Viveve is a proven method to reduce symptoms of vaginal laxity and loss of sensation, as well as urge incontinence and overactive bladder issues because it works at a cellular level to tighten vaginal tissue. This painless procedure can be completed in one 30-minute session with no anesthesia or downtime, with results that can be felt for over a year.
Who is a candidate for the Geneveve™?
Women wanting to improve their sexual wellness and vaginal health, who experience urinary incontinence, and/or who suffer from a loss of pleasurable sensation and satisfaction with intercourse due to vaginal laxity. Those wanting more lubrication and those looking to avoid surgery, and would like results with just one treatment.
How does the Geneveve™ work?
The procedure will take about 30 minutes and involves the application of a cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) device to stimulate the body’s natural renewal of collagen. Due to the heating capability of this procedure it triggers the body’s own regenerative process leading to a stimulation of new and stronger collagen.
Does this procedure hurt?
No! This procedure does not require any anesthesia. Patients have reported feeling a mild warmth, or even a cooling sensation due to the cryogen cooling mechanism.
Is there downtime?
There is no downtime, but cessation of vaginal penetration for 48 hours is recommended (this includes sexual intercourse or use of tampons).
When will I notice results and how long will the benefits last?
Each patient can differ, but some may notice results almost immediately and others may take up to three months. It takes about three months for new collagen to develop. The benefits of the Geneveve™ by Viveve last over a year.
