Urine leakage when you laugh, cough, sneeze or workout? Decreased arousal and lubrication? Reduced sensation or orgasm during intercourse?
Viveve is a women’s health and wellness company specializing in innovative devices and clinically proven therapeutic solutions to improve well-being and quality of life. We have a dedicated focus on understanding and addressing many of the most important challenges in women’s health today.
Our technology was custom designed specifically to address health issues affecting the vagina, unlike some technologies that are “add on” treatments to an existing aesthetic device. We are the only device that has been clinically studied in a multicenter, blinded, placebo-controlled study among more than 150 women.
The Viveve System™ is the first and only radiofrequency technology that has received Health Canada approval for treatment of vaginal introitus, after vaginal childbirth, to improve sexual function. It is the only device that incorporates cryogen cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF).
InControl® Products by Viveve treat the underlying cause of bladder leakage and urinary incontinence in women – weak pelvic floor muscles and an overactive detrusor muscle. Treatment is performed in the privacy of the home – just 10 minutes a day; and is 90% effective in treating daily incontinence episodes based on a recent clinical study.
Together our products provide a 1-2 punch in treating common conditions many women encounter.
About The Viveve System
The Viveve System is the only vaginal energy device with algorithmically controlled cooling.
The Viveve System is unique in its ability to deliver deep volumetric heat to stimulate robust neocollagenesis while protecting the surface tissue.
Cryogen cooling allows the Viveve treatment to deliver higher target temperature with sustained “time on tissue” for ideal patient outcomes in ONE treatment.
The Viveve System stimulates the rebuilding of natural collagen at the vaginal introitus, the key area impacting sensation and satisfaction for women.
Just like skin, vaginal tissue is made up of collagen fibers. Over time or with trauma the collagen can lose its strength and shape, creating a feeling of looseness (laxity), especially around the vaginal opening. Common causes of vaginal laxity include childbirth, other physical stress on the tissue, aging, genetic pre-disposition and lifestyle.
If you experience vaginal laxity, you may also notice a decreased feeling of sensation and satisfaction during intercourse.
Vaginal laxity is an extremely common medical condition. A Viveve-sponsored survey of U.S. OB/GYN physicians revealed that vaginal laxity is the number one physical change that they see or their patients report following vaginal delivery; more common than weight gain, incontinence, or stretch marks. In a survey of more than four hundred women in the U.S. who had vaginal deliveries, nearly half reported some level of concern with vaginal laxity.
There are multiple ways women can address vaginal laxity:
Kegel exercises may be the most commonly known and prescribed treatment because they can strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. However, while Kegels may improve muscle tone, they do not address the loss of elasticity in the soft tissue that rests upon the muscle and contributes to vaginal laxity.
Surgical options may be effective but also may entail significant health risks, recovery time, post-procedure pain and out-of-pocket costs.
Viveve works at the cellular level to rebuild and restore collagen, without harming the vaginal opening. Currently, Viveve is specifically designed for vaginal laxity and sexual function and has been shown to be safe and effective in a large, randomized, blinded and placebo-controlled clinical trial.
