Frequently Asked Questions about Viveve
WHAT IS THE VIVEVE TREATMENT LIKE?
This 30-45 minute single session is done in-office and does not require local or topical anesthesia or analgesics. Viveve uses gentle, deep heating and surface cooling to stimulate the body’s natural collagen formation process, which revitalizes and tightens tissue just inside the vaginal opening.
HOW IS VIVEVE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER TREATMENTS?
Viveve is the ONLY single-session solution and is the only treatment in the category to cool and protect surface tissue while deeply heating the tissue below, which promotes gradual collagen renewal.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Viveve is a single, 30-45 minute treatment; from there, the doctor will decide with you what, if any, additional follow-up is needed, based on your individual needs.
DOES VIVEVE HURT?
Viveve is a comfortable, 30-45 minute single session treatment that does not require any numbing anesthesia or analgesics. The treatment includes patented cooling technology that protects the tissue, giving patients a comfortable experience.
HOW SOON WILL I NOTICE RESULTS?
Every patient is different. Some patients report feeling a difference immediately or within a few weeks with noticeable improvement in lubrication, sensitivity, tightness, and reduction or elimination of stress urinary incontinence within 3 months. New collagen takes about 3 months to develop and may continue to improve after that time. Follow up occurs at 1 and 3 months.
HOW LONG WILL RESULTS LAST?
Results will vary from patient to patient based on individual needs and the body’s unique ability to produce collagen, but on average patients are still feeling results at 12 months.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE VIVEVE TREATMENT?
Multiple clinical studies have been conducted on the Viveve treatment. Two clinical studies showed statistically significant improvement in vaginal tightening, to pre-childbirth levels, at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months following a single, comfortable, 30-45 minute in-office treatment. 90% of the women who had Viveve in clinical studies reported significant, sustained tightening, improved sensation and sexual satisfaction through 12-month follow-up.
IS THERE ANY RECOVERY TIME?
The surface of the vaginal wall is not disrupted, thanks to the patented cooling, so you can return to normal activities immediately following the treatment. Dr. Robert will offer instructions on how quickly you can return to intimate activities.
CAN ANYONE HAVE THE TREATMENT?
Your doctor will take a complete medical history and determine if Viveve is right for you. The Viveve treatment is contraindicated for patients with an implantable pacemaker, an Automatic Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator (AICD) or any other implantable device who may be adversely affected by radiofrequency (RF) fields or current.
