Viveve® Vaginal Rejuvenation FAQs

If you’re considering vaginal rejuvenation you likely have questions about the procedure, recovery time and, of course, pain level. Our medical staff has taken the time to answer some of the most common questions we receive about nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation with Viveve®.

What Is Viveve Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Viveve is a non-surgical treatment for common vaginal issues, including urinary incontinence, dryness and vaginal laxity.* It is the non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure of choice for our board-certified plastic surgeons.

How Does Viveve Vaginal Rejuvenation Work?

The Viveve treatment works by triggering collagen production in the body that helps to strengthen and thicken the tissues in the walls of the vagina. Radiofrequency technology delivers energy into targeted areas of the vagina. The treatment also includes a cooling component that ensures the procedure is comfortable. As a result of the thickened and strengthened vaginal tissue, the vagina feels tighter and conditions like urinary incontinence improve.*

Is Viveve Vaginal Rejuvenation Safe?

Yes. Viveve is a surgery-free treatment that uses only radiofrequency technology, so it is completely safe and virtually painless.*

What Are the Benefits of Vaginal Rejuvenation with Viveve?

The Viveve treatment itself offers many benefits to women. Viveve is non-surgical, there is no downtime or cutting and only one 30-minute treatment is needed for most patients. The treatment tightens the vagina, thereby improving urinary control and increasing sensation. You’ll experience the benefits of this procedure in your everyday life and in the bedroom.*

What Can I Expect during the Treatment?

The majority of women describe the treatment as painless or slightly uncomfortable. You’ll likely experience a heating or cooling sensation during treatment, which lasts approximately 30 minutes and requires no downtime. In most cases, there are no side effects and women find that they can return to work and other normal activities immediately after treatment.*

When Will I Feel Results?

The majority of women begin to notice results within the first few weeks of treatment. You will continue noticing changes as the collagen production in your body continues to improve over time. Viveve treatments have shown improved sensitivity, tightness and incontinence within 6 to 9 weeks.*
