As women age or have delivered a baby, they may have problems with urinary incontinence or laxity. A Viveve treatment can help relieve symptoms.
Over the course of a woman’s life, she may experience several different health concerns. Most commonly, childbirth, active lifestyles, menopause, weight fluctuations or a shift in hormones can lead to the loosening of muscles and related concerns that may cause stress incontinence — the pressure (or stress) placed on the bladder causing urinary leakage.
This often happens with physical movement. If you have ever wondered why you leak urine when you laugh, cough or exercise, it may be due to stress urinary incontinence. These issues not only affect us physically but can affect us mentally by limiting our ability to live our best lives. If the following issues affect you, we are here to help.
• Do you leak urine when you laugh, cough, sneeze, jump or work out?
• Do you wear panty liners as protection for leakage?
• Do tampons slip or not feel as snug as they used to?
• Have you noticed decreased arousal or diminished orgasm during intercourse?
• Is vaginal dryness causing discomfort?
• Do you experience sudden “urges” to urinate?

WHAT IS VIVEVE?
Safe and Effective
Viveve Solutions is a safe and effective non-surgical intimate wellness treatment for women looking to improve post-childbirth vaginal laxity, decrease incontinence or heighten sensation during sex. It can be completed with a 30-45 minute non-invasive in-office procedure. The Viveve Solutions treatment tip delivers cryogen cooling as well as pulses of monopolar radiofrequency energy, which results in the heating of the connective tissue while cryogen cools the surface at the same time.
Patients may experience a warm or cool sensation during this process. It should not cause any discomfort. Treatment sessions require no anesthesia and are completely painless. There is no downtime following treatment, and patients can resume normal activities. Viveve prompts the production of new collagen to reinvigorate the tissue within the vaginal wall, ultimately generating a more youthful tone and resiliency, and improving body confidence.

Vaginal Laxity & Urinary Incontinence
Urinary incontinence can result from vaginal laxity due to decreased estrogen levels and subsequent deterioration of collagen, which reduces the vulva-vaginal mucosa. This can lead to a woman feeling less confident about her body. Stress incontinence is a more specific condition characterized by the inability to prevent leaking urine when sneezing, laughing, exercising or coughing. Following childbirth, women often deal with a strong need to urinate but struggle to get to the toilet in time; this is referred to as urge incontinence.
Difficulties with urinary incontinence are more common among women, especially postmenopausal, postpartum, and menopausal women.
Urinary incontinence and the subsequent symptoms can now be treated with the innovative Viveve procedure. Most often, incontinence in menopausal and postmenopausal women is due to reduced levels of estrogen and collagen atrophy. Viveve now works to replenish this degenerated collagen.
This new foundation of stronger tissue can help the vaginal wall become more pliant and improve tightness to increase your body’s ability to manage urine flow properly.
The non-invasive low-risk treatment applies its advanced radio-frequency technology to the vaginal wall to stimulate collagen growth, improve vaginal laxity and increase feminine wellness along with improving their confidence with their body.
Post-Childbirth Vaginal Laxity
Vaginal laxity is often found in new mothers and results from the expansion of the vagina to accommodate a baby while it makes its way through the birth canal. This condition can lead to a decline in female sexual function, poor body image, and overall reduced quality of life. More specifically, difficulties with vaginal looseness and relaxed tissue following childbirth often cause reduced sexual sensitivity and urinary incontinence.
Thankfully, mothers can receive the innovative new Viveve treatment as soon as 8 to 12 weeks following childbirth. The advanced technology can now help those struggling, whether after their first or fifth baby, and help them attain the improvements they have been searching for after just a few weeks.
Women experiencing a lack of vaginal rigidity and sensitivity often notice severe detriments in sexual stimulation over time. This loose tissue resulting in adverse symptoms can often stem from a medical condition, childbirth, age or a hormone imbalance. Fortunately, women struggling with these impairments now have the option of the innovative Viveve treatment. This advanced procedure can gently use radio frequencies to repair existing tissue to help restore the elastin and collagen that make for a healthy, tight, and sensitive vagina.
Women who sometimes experience a loss of sensitivity or inadequate climax sensations during sex due to vaginal laxity can now see long-lasting results. Viveve’s restorative treatment can generate a natural rejuvenation of your tissue, encouraging the vaginal wall to provide more lubrication and sensitivity during sex and improve overall feminine wellness. In addition, the long-lasting results obtained in this procedure can help aid in the quality and intensity of climaxes and create a more sensational experience for you and your partner.
