Viveve Vaginal Therapy in Charlotte, NC

Is Viveve Right for You?

Millions of women suffer with vaginal laxity and the resulting loss of sexual sensation and satisfaction. The Viveve Treatment (formerly known as Geneveve) is a clinically-proven, single-session radio frequency vaginal treatment that safely and comfortably rejuvenates tissue and improves its responsiveness. Controlled-cooling protects the tissue surfaces from any damage and impacts the resistance of the epithelial layer which allows for greater penetration of the RF energy. Just like the skin, vaginal tissue changes over time. When collagen support fibers lose their youthful strength and vitality, a feeling of looseness called laxity, especially around the vaginal opening, occurs. Vaginal laxity is an extremely common medical condition caused by aging, childbirth, genetics and lifestyle. Millions of women suffer silently with vaginal laxity and the resulting loss of sexual sensation and satisfaction.

Viveve is not a cosmetic procedure, because it’s not about how you look, but how you feel. Viveve is a painless, non-surgical procedure performed by a pelvic specialist. Viveve is designed to treat vaginal laxity and therefore increase physical sensation during intercourse. It works at the cellular level to tighten the vaginal tissue gently and gradually.  Using a cyro component (cool sensation) combined with powerful radio-frequency energy, Viveve builds up collagen around the vaginal canal and opening. The collagen build up peaks at 3 months and usually only requires 1 treatment.  The treatment takes 30 minutes with no anesthesia or downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions About Viveve

How does it work?

To generate healthy new collagen, the Viveve uses patented deep heating and surface cooling to stimulate your body’s natural collagen formation process.  This dual heating and cooling capability trigger the body’s own natural regenerative process that leads to new and stronger collagen while maintaining patient’s safety and comfort. Women who have had the Viveve treatment agree it works!  In fact, 90% of the women who had the procedure in clinical studies, reported significant, sustained tightening, sensation and satisfaction 12 months after treatment.

Does it hurt?

The Viveve treatment is not painful. Some patients report a cooling sensation, others note a warmth, but virtually all agree that the procedure is painless and comfortable.

How soon will I see results?

Every patient is different. Some patients report feeling a difference immediately, but new collagen takes about three months to develop and may continue to improve after that time.

How long will the results last?

Results will vary from patient to patient based on their individual needs and their body’s unique ability to produce collagen. On average, patients are still feeling results at 12 months. From there you can decide whether or not you are ready for a maintenance treatment, or if you’re still experiencing great results and can wait.

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 procedure. Dr. Hettiarachchi will offer instructions on how quickly you can return to intimate activities.

Can anyone have the treatment?

Dr. Hettiarachchi will determine if Viveve is right for you based on your medical history. However, the Viveve treatment is not available for patients with either an implantable pacemaker or an Automatic Implantable Cardioverter/Defibrillator (AICD) or any other implantable device.

Is the treatment safe?

The radio-frequency energy used in the treatment has been used for over a decade in treating the delicate skin on the face, neck and hands. Numerous clinical trials by Viveve Clinics have demonstrated the safety of this latest application. One safe, painless Viveve treatment can have a sensational impact on your sexual health.

What else can it do?

Viveve can also cure stress urinary incontinence, also known as overactive bladder. The leakage of urine is a common and distressing issue, which affects many women worldwide and may have a large impact on quality of life. Incontinence can now be treated in one single session by Viveve at The Charlotte Center for Pelvic Health.
