We all know having kids can really mess with our bodies. One of the most affected, yet least spoken about issue, is that of our vagina being stretched to the max and therefore creating a feeling of looseness and decreased feeling of sensation and sexual satisfaction during intercourse. In a survey of over four hundred women, nearly half reported some level of vaginal looseness, or what is known as vaginal laxity.
Viveve is a non-surgical, in-office treatment option that can increase feelings of vaginal tightness and improve sexual satisfaction. Just like your skin, vaginal tissue is made up of collagen fibres, and with the Viveve treatment they can be tightened.
- Usually performed in the comfort of your physician’s office
- Typically takes less than 30 minutes
- Well-tolerated and doesn’t require anaesthesia
- Little to no downtime – you can go back to your normal activities following the procedure
In a sexual satisfaction survey of women who had undergone the Viveve treatment after experiencing vaginal deliveries 67% of the women reported an increase in vaginal tightness at 30 days, and 87% at 6 months after the treatment.
While it may be a difficult subject to bring up, your sexual satisfaction is an important part of your overall sexual health, and is worthy of a dialogue. If you’re concerned about vaginal laxity, it’s time to start the conversation with your doctor and find out if the Viveve procedure is right for you.

At the beginning of the Geneveve by Viveve procedure, your doctor will insert a treatment tip about the size of your thumb right behind the vaginal opening. The tip is circumferentially moved around the opening, delivering pulsed heat to the collagen fibres that make up the underlying tissues while also cooling the surface.
Vaginal tissue reacts to the heat by reproducing new collagen fibres within the tissue. The process takes place over time, usually between 30-90 days after the treatment, and perhaps longer. These changes occur on the cellular level, so there are no outward signs of change to the vaginal tissue.
