What is Viveve?
Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology is thrilled to offer our female patients Viveve (formerly known as Geneveve). This noninvasive vaginal rejuvenation treatment was specifically designed to improve women’s well-being and quality of life. Many factors can lead to changes in women’s bodies, including pregnancy, childbirth, and the normal aging process. Using cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) energy, Viveve stimulates the body’s natural collagen formation. This, in turn, leads to a decrease in vaginal laxity and urinary stress incontinence, as well as an increase in lubrication, arousal, and orgasm. Mary Krempa, RN specializes in this exciting treatment, which, unlike similar technologies, can make a significant difference in just one visit to our San Francisco, CA office.
"After multiple vaginal births and an active lifestyle, I thought that it couldn't hurt to try Geneveve. I was told to expect improvements in laxity, lubrication, and incontinence. The procedure was only uncomfortable in that you are letting something treat you vaginal area; once your mind gets over that, the procedure is easy and I did not experience any significant discomfort. I first noticed an improvement with incontinence (vigorous exercise or just laughing too hard don't cause wet pants anymore!), and then increased sexual pleasure detectable by both my partner and myself. From my perspective, this was an easy procedure that has enhanced my lifestyle in ways that I didn't think could be improved."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Aug 22, 2017
"I am very happy with Viveve treatment. My urgency has decreased. I currently do not need to use the under pant lining daily. I can hold and not using the toilet for the duration of the flight from NYC to Chicago. Usually, I have to use the facility two times during the flight.I do believe my condition will further improve with repeated treatments."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Aug 09, 2017
"After two treatments, I flew to Miami and danced for 3 hours to a salsa wedding band. I’ve been incontinent for 21 years since the birth of my son, and Emsella helped turn back the clock to a life where I’m not wondering where the nearest bathroom is. The treatment takes 28 minutes, there are 6 in the series, and absolutely no pain or discomfort. Just sit and read your emails! OMG I cannot recommend this enough!!!"- KW / Office Visit / Mar 20, 2019
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM VIVEVE TREATMENTS?
Women who are unhappy with the vaginal effects that aging or childbirth have had on their bodies could
benefit from treatment with Viveve. Some signs Viveve might be right for you include vaginal laxity, a lack of sensation during intimacy, or uncomfortable dryness. If you have any of these symptoms, schedule a complimentary phone consultation by using the contact form on this page.
Most women are candidates for Viveve. Exceptions include those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, as well as women who have a pacemaker or other implanted heart device, an active vaginal or cervical infection, or a recent positive Pap smear.
How is Viveve Performed?
Prior to your Viveve treatment, Mary Krempa, RN will call you to discuss the treatment, answer any of your questions, and determine if you are a good candidate. On the day of your treatment, you will start by reviewing and signing the informed consent for treatment. We will then provide you with a robe and blanket to make sure you are comfortable and warm during the procedure. Your treatment will be performed in one of our private treatment rooms. One session takes about 30 minutes to complete and is usually painless. Some patients report a warm sensation, but no discomfort. Many patients read or use our patient iPad to watch movies or listen to music during the procedure.
What Can I Expect AFter a Viveve Session?
The Viveve procedure is noninvasive. This means there are no incisions or needles involved. You can return to all activities, including vigorous exercise, immediately following treatment. However, we do recommend abstaining from intercourse for 48 hours to allow for optimum results.
