How Viveve® Works
During a Viveve® treatment, one of our expert providers will use a cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) to heat deep tissue while allowing the surface to cool. This rejuvenates vaginal tissue and muscles without the need for local or general anesthesia. While you may experience a minor warming sensation, you’ll likely find the treatment to be painless and comfortable.
Once you’ve completed a Viveve® treatment, you can resume work and your daily activities immediately. You’ll be able to exercise and participate in sex and won’t have to worry about any changes in vaginal discharge or odor. In most cases, only one Viveve® treatment is necessary for optimal results.
If you undergo Viveve®, you can expect to notice results after about a month. Your results will gradually improve for up to 3 months. Although the longevity of results varies from patient to patient, most patients enjoy them for a year. You are welcome to visit our office for maintenance treatments every 1 to 1.5 years if you’d like.
