Just like the skin, vaginal tissue changes over time. When collagen support fibers lose their youthful strength and vitality, a feeling of looseness called laxity, especially around the vaginal opening, occurs. Vaginal laxity is an extremely common medical condition caused by ageing, childbirth, genetics and lifestyle.
Geneveve by Viveve is the new, painless, no downtime, single session treatment that addresses the four common issues woman may encounter during their lifetime:
It works at the cellular level to tighten the vaginal tissue gently and gradually. The treatment takes 30 minutes with no anesthesia.
Urinary incontinence, or loss of bladder control, is a frustrating problem for millions of Americans. Never knowing when and where you might have an accident can affect everything from work to exercise to your social life. It happens to both men and women, but it’s more common in women. Studies show that at least half of older women may have some form of incontinence.
The main symptom is peeing unexpectedly, but there are different types of incontinence. If you leak a bit when you laugh, cough, sneeze, jog, or lift something heavy, you may have stress incontinence. This is the most common bladder control problem in younger women.
Stress incontinence happens when the muscles and tissues around the opening of the bladder get weak. When there’s more pressure against the bladder and this opening doesn’t stay closed, leakage happens. Pressure from coughing or laughing may be all it takes for you to leak. There are a few reasons why these muscles can lose strength: They may be stretched by weight gain, a sports injury, or pregnancies and vaginal childbirths.
Loss of sensation is very common after vaginal childbirth, and can also affect maturing women who had no children. The cause: receding collagen.
All skin is made of collagen fibers and can, over time, lose its strength and shape, creating a feeling of looseness (laxity). Where the vaginal opening no longer “embraces” the partner the way it used to, the amount of pleasurable sensation for women is reduced. These vaginal changes can lead to:
Millions of women suffer with vaginal laxity. In fact, 88% of doctors surveyed said vaginal laxity is the number 1 physical change occurring post vaginal delivery. Vaginal laxity often goes un-reported by their patients, and therefore untreated. 83% of doctors surveyed said vaginal laxity was under-reported by their patients. Consequently, vaginal laxity can have a profound effect on a woman’s overall health and well-being

To generate healthy new collagen, the Geneveve treatment uses patented deep heating and surface cooling to stimulate your body’s natural collagen formation process. This dual heating and cooling capability triggers the body’s own natural regenerative process that leads to new and stronger collagen while maintaining patient’s safety and comfort.
Women who have had the Geneveve treatment agree it works! Though everyone’s baseline level of laxity and natural response mechanisms vary, 90% of the women who had the procedure in clinical studies, reported significant, sustained tightening, sensation and satisfaction at 60-90 days after treatment and lasting 12 months and longer.
The Geneveve treatment is a respectful, comfortable, 30-minute, single-session, in-office treatment that does not require local or topical numbing medication. At the beginning of the procedure, the practitioner inserts a treatment tip (the size of a toothbrush, without the bristles) just inside the vaginal opening. This tip is circumferentially rotated around the opening of the vagina delivering just the right amount of heating and cooling. The vaginal tissue reacts to the heat by replenishing new youthful, cushioning collagen within the tissue.
If you are experiencing the following, you may want to talk to one of our experienced medical providers about Geneveve:
The Geneveve treatment is not painful. Some patients report a cooling sensation, other note a warmth, but virtually all agree that the procedure is painless and comfortable.
Every patient is different. Some patients report feeling a difference immediately, but new collagen takes about three months to develop and may continue to improve after that time.
Geneveve by Viveve produces outstanding results, including the thorough remodeling of the vaginal tissue. The restoration of a firmer, thicker, more youthful vaginal wall, will provide deep support for the urethra and surrounding tissues – hence, improve all stress and urge incontinence. You can return to your regular activity immediately, including sexual intercourse.
Results will vary from patient to patient based on their individual needs and their body’s unique ability to produce collagen. On average, patients are still feeling their results at 12 months. From there you can decide, whether or not you are ready for a maintenance treatment or if you’re still experiencing great results and can wait.
The Geneveve treatment is contraindicated for patients with either an implantable pacemaker or an Automatic Implantable Cardioverter/Defibrillator (AICD) or any other implantable device.
