Viveve is a noninvasive treatment for women that uses radiofrequency energy to treat feminine conditions such as urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, and vaginal laxity.
The aging process naturally causes these common conditions, as there is a significant decrease in collagen cells over time. Decreased collagen makes the vaginal and urinary tissues relax and become less responsive and less effective.
Viveve uses gentle, deep heat to stimulate collagen production and new tissue growth. After this safe and effective treatment, you see a return of urinary control and sexual response without surgery, pain, or downtime.
Hera Healthcare proudly offers Viveve because this treatment holds many benefits for their female patients, including:
Viveve doesn’t require any form of sedation or local anesthetic because of its effective cooling system, which protects the surface of the skin while treating deeper tissues. After a single session, many women experience more intense orgasms, increased vaginal lubrication, and improved urinary control.
After an initial consultation, Dr. Cernaianu creates a personalized treatment plan. In most cases, Viveve is a single-session treatment that continues to offer effective results for up to 12 months. In some cases, more than one treatment may provide optimal results.
During your 30- to 45-minute Viveve session, a technician inserts a small instrument just inside the vaginal opening. Your highly skilled technician rotates the specially designed tip as it alternately cools the surface and heats the deep tissue of your vaginal wall.
You shouldn’t experience any pain and may return to normal activities immediately after treatment. In some cases, Dr. Cernaianu may suggest waiting a bit before engaging in sexual activities.
Some women notice an immediate improvement in their vaginal or urinary responsiveness. Though every woman is different, it typically takes about three months for collagen production to develop and make your most noticeable changes.
Your Viveve treatment results may continue to improve for several months and may last for up to 12 months. The treatment is gentle and safe enough that you may have maintenance treatments as needed.
