Viveve - Women’s Health and Wellness
The Viveve treatment is designed to benefit thousands of women and improve their health and quality of life.
Viveve is a state-of-the-art treatment designed to restore vaginal tightness, and address stress urinary incontinence (SUI) unlike any other device out there.
There are many changes that women’s bodies go through throughout her lifetime, which include the decline of the vaginal lining due to the slowdown of collagen production. When collagen fibres decrease, the walls in the vagina lose their tightness.
Pregnancy, childbirth, age, and genetic disposition can make the laxity more pronounced.
Laxity in the vaginal walls can also decrease vaginal sensation and satisfaction during sexual intercourse disrupting a woman’s sexual confidence and sexual health. There are a number of reasons why we chose the Viveve treatment over other non-surgical devices as well.
The Viveve treatment uses clinically-proven cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) to uniformly deliver gentle volumetric heating while cooling delicate surface tissue. This unique technology stimulates the body’s natural collagen formation process. Because Viveve uses tiny pulses of gentle energy, the right amount of heat – for the right amount of time – is delivered to reinvigorate tissue. Unlike the alternatives, this treatment is more comfortable and only requires a single-session, 30 or 45 minute treatment for tightening and strengthening tissue.
Viveve treatment offers a single treatment due to it’s patented cooling that allows for a comfortable and deeper treatment resulting in long-term results versus coming in for multiple treatments.
Viveve is also a much less intrusive procedure than other devices and the ONLY device currently seeking FDA approval for treatment of sexual function.
Clinical studies for Viveve go out one year, and at one year 90% of clients were still completely satisfied with their results.
With our experience with other collagen stimulating devices, you typically get two to five years out of one Viveve treatment before you are requiring a touch up. This is because, as we age, we continue to lose elasticity and collagen.
We encourage you to take advantage of booking your free consultation with Augusta’s Dermal Clinic Therapist Kerri to determine if Viveve may be the right treatment for you.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Women who are experiencing vaginal laxity, loss of moisture or stress incontinence due to ageing or childbirth can often benefit from this procedure.
It is advised that individuals who are pregnant, should wait until after the birth to undergo this treatment.
Women who are menstruating should also wait to undergo a Viveve treatment, as increased blood flow in the area can impede the penetration of RF energy.
Furthermore, patients with an automatic implantable cardiovascular/defibrillator (AICD) should not receive this treatment.
A complimentary consultation is the best way to determine if this procedure is right for you.
