Female Rejuvenation with Viveve Q & A

What is female rejuvenation with Viveve?

Female rejuvenation is a noninvasive treatment that addresses problems that many women experience during menopause, after childbirth, or after cancer treatment. Dr. Sannoh uses the ViveveĀ® treatment device to send gentle radiofrequency pulses into the vaginal area.

The radiofrequency energy stimulates blood supply to the area while it triggers new collagen and elastin creation. This encourages healing and helps restore vaginal health and wellness, in treatment sessions of only about half an hour each.

What kinds of symptoms can Viveve treatment help with?

No matter the reason, when your body's estrogen levels decrease, certain issues may occur. Some of the most common issues that occur are:

  • Loss of vaginal elasticity
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Thinning of vaginal tissues
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Vaginal burning or itching
  • Urinary stress incontinence

Viveve treatment helps restore strength in your vaginal walls and return vaginal tissues to their previous state through new collagen and elastin creation.

What does Viveve treatment feel like?

Most women find Viveve treatment very comfortable. You'll lay back during treatment, much like you would for an ordinary exam with the OB/GYN, so Dr. Sannoh can administer the treatment. There's no anesthesia needed because the system is built especially for patient comfort.

Viveve is unique among female rejuvenation treatments because it uses a special kind of radiofrequency: cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency. This kind of radiofrequency delivers the deep heating needed to stimulate new collagen and elastin, but it's not painful because it has a built-in cooler to maintain a comfortable temperature on your skin's surface.

When will I notice results after Viveve treatment?

Most women notice results after about a month, with optimal results occurring at about 90 days after their Viveve treatment.

How often do I need Viveve treatment to maintain my results?

Most women enjoy as much as a full year of symptom improvement after their Viveve treatment. In most cases, just one Viveve treatment once or twice a year is enough to maintain your great results.
