Rosalyn George, M.D., and her experienced team are proud to provide an unrivaled women’s health and wellness solution to issues with vaginal tightness, lubrication, sexual satisfaction, and urinary incontinence: Viveve. This unique treatment, formerly called Geneveve, gently and painlessly improves your vaginal function and quality of life for years to come — in under an hour!

Viveve Treatment in Wilmington

What Is the Viveve Treatment and How Does It Work?

Simply put, Viveve stimulates the body’s natural collagen production to restore vaginal wall tautness that has been lost due to pregnancy, childbirth, age, or simple genetic predisposition. This can benefit anyone whose sexual confidence, health, or satisfaction has been affected by laxity in the vaginal walls, or who has experienced urinary incontinence (SUI).

Viveve treatment painlessly delivers clinically proven, cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) which heats internal structures responsible for creating collagen, while cooling delicate surface tissue. This patented and gentle process is less intrusive than comparable procedures, only requires a single treatment of 45-to-75-minutes, and offers truly long-term results.

Viveve Rejuvenation Patient Testimonial

“Definitely worth it! After having my first child I lost sensitivity and had issues with bladder leakage. When I first heard about this procedure, I thought for sure that it would be painful or uncomfortable, but that was not the case at all. There was zero pain and, even better, no downtime. I’m very pleased with the results. I have far fewer “accidents” and my sensitivity has returned. Definitely recommended!!”

What is the History of the Viveve Treatment?

Viveve Medical Inc. developed the Viveve treatment to remodel collagen and restore vaginal tissue out of a commitment to advance new solutions that improve women’s well-being and quality of life. Viveve is the leading single-treatment, RF-based solution for sexual function and incontinence, and the only device undergoing FDA approval for treatment of sexual function. International regulatory approvals and clearances have been received for vaginal laxity and/or improvement in sexual function indications in more than 50 countries.

Prior to Treatment

Anesthesia isn’t needed for this gentle procedure. We take extensive measures to ensure the treatment area is properly cleansed and prepared before Viveve rejuvenation begins. Lubricant is applied to the instrument head, which is smooth and about the size and outline of a toothbrush head.

During Treatment

The instrument head is gently inserted just an inch or two to treat the muscles in the entry of the vagina. You’ll notice a warm or cool sensation during the procedure but shouldn’t feel any pain or discomfort. The device emits pulses of monopolar energy to stimulate collagen production within the vaginal walls. The treatment is completed in our office in just 45 to 75 minutes.

After Treatment & Results

There is no downtime associated with Viveve, and you can resume all normal activities immediately, although we recommend two days without intercourse. You may experience mild redness, swelling, or tingling just after the procedure, all of which should resolve quickly. All Viveve patients are provided Dr. George’s personal contact information for concerns outside of normal business hours.

You’ll generally enjoy the full benefits of Viveve in three months, and results can last 12 months or longer. Results progress as the increased collagen improves tightness, sensation, lubrication, sexual satisfaction, and urinary leakage. Repeat treatments can maintain these results.

The Right Time for Viveve Treatment in Wilmington

Am I a Candidate for Viveve Treatment?

Viveve is excellent for anyone experiencing vaginal laxity, loss of moisture or sensitivity, or stress incontinence due to aging, childbirth, or any other cause. It can revitalize your sex life, urinary control, and self-confidence in a single treatment.

If you are pregnant or menstruating, we will hold off on treatment, as these can present risks during the Viveve procedure. You should also disclose if you have an automatic implantable cardiovascular/defibrillator (AICD), as the Viveve treatment could cause health issues.

VIveve Treatment Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the Viveve treatment take?

Viveve takes about 30 minutes to complete, so you can expect to be in the office for 45 minutes total. If we’re treating for SUI (stress incontinence), the appointment will be slightly longer at 75 minutes.

How many treatments will I need to see full benefits?

The beauty of Viveve is that you only need one treatment, unlike comparable procedures currently on the market. Repeat treatments down the road can maintain tightness in the vaginal wall.

What does Viveve treatment feel like?

The tip is rotated while it alternately cools the surface and heats the soft tissue beneath. Patients generally experience no pain, require no anesthetic, and can resume their normal lifestyle at once.

What happens after Viveve Rejuvenation? When will I see results?

You should notice an increase in nerve sensitivity, muscle contractions, and lubrication, as well as a reduction of urinary leakage. There’s no downtime, and results progress further over three months.

How is Viveve different from other rejuvenation procedures?

Viveve uses a patented, clinically proven cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) to uniformly deliver gentle heating while cooling delicate surface tissue. No other device offers this. In addition, Viveve only requires a single brief treatment, compared to other procedures that require multiple.

How long will the positive effects of Viveve last?

Results depend on the individual but can last anywhere from 12 months to years depending on your body’s collagen production, which the procedure permanently boosts.

What are expected side effects of Viveve?

Viveve is clinically proven to be safe and effective with no downtime. Side effects may include mild redness, swelling, or a tingling sensation, but all of these should resolve quickly.

If multiple treatments are desired, how long should I wait in between treatments?

We recommend waiting a full year between treatments, since the results are progressive and typically additional treatments aren’t needed.

How Much Does Viveve Rejuvenation Cost?

Viveve pricing is set at $3,000 per treatment. This is a one-time treatment, with the option for repeat treatment sessions to maintain tightness in the vaginal walls as the years progress.
