Viveve

Did you know that 50% of women experience stress urinary incontinence (SUI). And that is just the tip of the iceberg. The Viveve treatment addresses a medical condition affecting functionality and quality of life. The treatment is for women experiencing vaginal tissue changes due to childbirth, age, hormones, or pelvic floor trauma that can affect women of all ages. The Viveve treatment, delivered by the Viveve System, is the only internationally patented, cryogen-cooled monopolar RF energy (CMRF) technology that delivers the power of cooling for deep healing.

The Viveve treatment for SUI: A 45-minute, in-office procedure that delivers radiofrequency deeper in the vaginal canal as well as the introitus to support the urethra. The strengthening of the connective tissue of the vaginal canal provides benefit for overall pelvic floor health.

Adoption of elective medical procedures is increasing dramatically worldwide. Women are largely driving this trend, which is creating an emerging demand for nonsurgical gynecologic treatments. Despite the growing demand, there is a surprisingly limited number of safe and effective technologies specifically designed for female conditions. Now, there is a company that is helping women’s health and wellness come into its own – Viveve.

What is Viveve?

Viveve is a single-session treatment that naturally and gently stimulates the production of collagen. The treatment includes patented cooling technology that not only protects the tissue, giving patients a comfortable experience, but it also optimizes the treatment by allowing the deep heating to go where you need it most so you get the best results. It is a comfortable, single-session, 30-minute treatment. Viveve does not require local or topical anesthesia or analgesics and is performed by a trained healthcare professional in an outpatient setting.

What makes this treatment different?

Internationally Patented Technology: Our passion drives innovation! We are proud to develop platform technologies that improve women’s health and overall well-being, while adhering to the highest scientific and ethical standards. Sustained tissue tightening and strengthening requires substantial heating at the appropriate depth in tissue. Only the Viveve® System utilizes cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) to uniformly deliver gentle volumetric heating while cooling delicate surface tissue.

Robust Clinical Science: The Viveve treatment has been tested in three prospective clinical trials: one in the U.S., one in Japan and a large, multi-center randomized, placebo-controlled multi-national clinical trial. The goal of assessing the safety, effectiveness and meaningful benefit of the treatment was successfully achieved. In all trials, statistically significant and sustained results were found.

Enthusiastic Acceptance Worldwide: Viveve specializes in low-risk, high-reward treatments for both patients and healthcare practitioners. The Viveve System is available in many countries around the world. To find out where click here.
