You knew that being pregnant or getting older would be difficult, but urinary incontinence (also known as vaginal incontinence) may be an issue you were not expecting. Around the world, it is estimated that one in three women deal with this issue to some degree. Rather than just treating the leaks and suffering in silence, consider Viveve treatments. This non-surgical method of treating incontinence may be the solution you have been dreaming of.
How Does Viveve Work?
Viveve is effective because it helps to rebuild collagen in the vaginal tissue. The device uses cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency to deliver the energy to the deep tissues without causing damage or discomfort. The incorporated cooling makes sure that the surface skin is not negatively impacted. Radiofrequency energy is converted into heat in the body, which is what will stimulate the beginning of collagen production.
This treatment is superior to other options on the market thanks to the cryogenic-cooled component. This allows more energy to be delivered while still keeping you comfortable. The extra energy translates into even more collagen production. This is why you get dramatic, satisfactory results in just one session with Viveve.
What to Expect with Viveve Vaginal Incontinence Treatment
This procedure is considered completely non-surgical and minimally-invasive. The device is inserted into the vagina where it will alternate between delivering the energy and cooling the skin. No anesthesia is required and the process is performed in the comfort of our office. Overall, Viveve takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. Other than avoiding intercourse for 48 hours, there is no downtime or restrictions afterward.
Once your treatment session is complete, your body will get to work. It takes approximately three to four months to complete this process. Many women report feeling improvements in just one month. The results of this treatment can last for up to one year.
