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.

Viveve is:

  • 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.

Everything you wanted to know about Viveve Everything You Wanted to Know About Viveve But Were Afraid to Ask December 14, 2020 - Who doesn’t want to improve their intimate life? Just as the rest of the female body, the vagina ages – and this unfortunately can lead to many problems for women. Vagina dryness, urinary incontinence, pain during intercourse and vaginal laxity, are just some of the symptoms. The Viveve treatment is a patented, monopolar radiofrequency technology that renews the tissue just inside the vaginal opening. A Viveve treatment can significantly improve your intimate life by improving these conditions in just a single treatment. Viveve – A Single, Comfortable, In-House Session The good news is the Viveve treatment is a single-session, in-office treatment that does not require local or topical numbing medication. The Viveve System uses cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) to deliver heat to the vaginal walls to strengthen and tighten the tissues. The system delivers short, alternating pulses of cooling to protect the delicate surface of the patient, this allows for a deeper heating of the lax tissue beneath. The cooling technology also activates the natural formation of younger, more supportive collagen. Gradually over 3-6 months, the collagen revitalizes the vaginal area. Overall, the system improves vaginal laxity, increases lubrication, reduces painful intercourse, reduces bladder leakage, and increases sensitivity for improved […]

treating incontinence Comedian Bev Killick Talks Incontinence June 12, 2020 - We caught up with Comedian Bev Killick, to have a conversation about treating incontinence. Incontinence affects up to 13% of Australian men and up to 37% of Australian women (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare report, 2006) but these numbers are suggested to be higher – not everyone admits to the issue or seeks help. Bev is helping to shine a light on this common problem and also talks about the things we can do to treat incontinence. Bev talks honestly about her own journey with the wonderful, raw humour for which she is known. She talks about how pelvic floor exercises are important (and how to actually do them!) and about non-surgical laser devices such as Viveve that are helping women recover control. Viveve is an easy, one-off treatment that can help with incontinence, vaginal ageing and all the issues that come with that such as dryness, looseness and more.

treating incontinence What is Viveve? How your vagina changes as you age… July 25, 2019 - As women age, so do their more intimate areas. Viveve is a non-surgical, quick and painless treatment to help treat vaginal laxity and incontinence. Viveve works at a cellular level to restore collagen and help tighten the vagina and can have both functional and aesthetic benefits. Melanie Parsons from Millenium Wellness Centre in Sydney helps us understand What is Viveve and how it is helping with women’s wellness. How your vagina changes as you age When women talk about their vagina, quite often they don’t realise they’re talking about their vulva. The vulva is the outside area while your vagina which is actually the canal inside. The vulva includes the lips, clitoris, labia majora and the labia minora. As we age, both the vulva and vaginal tissues lose their fullness and therefore tightness, leading to a range of issues. There is a name for what women’s intimate areas go through as we age, especially as we near menopause. It’s called Vulvovaginal Atrophy (or VVA), and refers to the gradual loss of estrogen. It’s interesting to note that estrogen is our sex hormone so it directly relates to the deteriorisation in both the appearance and the function of the vagina. Symptoms […]
