Women are amazing. They give the gift of life, but boy does it take a toll. The vaginal changes that occur with childbirth and routine aging can be challenging to deal with. Before in-office vaginal tightening, surgery was the only medical solution. It involved lots of pain and discomfort, downtime with healing, and no guarantee that results would be satisfying. Now, we can get great improvement in vaginal laxity and incontinence with Viveve®. About Face Med Spa is one of the only medical facilities offering this groundbreaking and life-altering procedure. In as little as 30 minutes, the clock on vaginal health can be turned back.
What is Viveve? The Viveve® System is an effective and innovative radiofrequency device that targets lax and sagging vaginal tissue. As the treatment area is warmed, the body begins producing new collagen. The result is improved vaginal form and function for women with a variety of intimate concerns including vaginal dryness, pain during sex, vaginal laxity and urinary incontinence.
How long do the results from Viveve last? Results depend heavily upon a variety of factors and are unique to the individual. However, in most cases, The Viveve System® has been shown to last approximately 24 months or more. At that time, maintenance appointments are available.
When will I notice results? The Viveve System® works with the body’s natural healing process to create impressive, beautiful and natural-looking results. This means that you can expect to begin noticing improvement in your conditions within a few weeks after your appointment. The full results should be noticeable after about three months.
What symptoms does the Viveve System treat? One of the most attractive aspects of The Viveve System® is that it can be used to treat a variety of vaginal health concerns. The device is most commonly used to address vaginal laxity and urinary incontinence, two frequent problems that were formerly considered an unfortunate but unchangeable part of the aging process. Now, more confidence and less daily hassle are possible thanks to The Viveve System.
Is it painful? When many patients hear that The Viveve System uses radiofrequency energy, they become worried that it may be uncomfortable. However, this is a cryogen-cooled radiofrequency device, meaning that a cooling component ensures patient comfort throughout the procedure. The treatment is not painful at all.
Do I have to refrain from sexual activities afterwards? Fortunately, The Viveve System® has no associated side effects. Additionally, The Viveve System® does not require any recovery time, allowing patients to return to their daily routines, without any hassle or discomfort. And guess what? There’s no downtime with resuming sexual intercourse.
How long do the treatments take? The Viveve System is efficient and effective, requiring only 30 to 50 minutes total. Stress urinary incontinence sessions are longer. This makes tending to your vaginal health simple, convenient and stress-free.
