Geneveve™ by Viveve®

Over the course of a woman’s life, she may develop vaginal looseness for a number of reasons. Most commonly, childbirth, menopause, weight fluctuations or a shift in hormones can lead to loosening of the vaginal muscles and related concerns, such as stress incontinence, a loss of sexual pleasure and a decrease in sensation. Geneveve™ is a nonsurgical feminine rejuvenation treatment for vaginal laxity that tightens the muscles and tissues of the vagina by stimulating your body’s natural collagen production in just 30 minutes without any scars or downtime.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Harrington understands a woman’s most private concerns. During your initial consultation, she’ll listen to your reasons for considering feminine rejuvenation and explain how Geneveve™ by Viveve® works in greater detail.

Harrington Plastic Surgery has helped women from all over the Twin Cities area reclaim their youth and vitality with vaginal rejuvenation. Contact us online or call our Plymouth office today at 651-290-7600 for more information about Geneveve™, including pricing.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Geneveve™?

Many women who feel that they’ve lost some vaginal tightness can be excellent candidates for Geneveve™ treatments. Some of the most common reasons to consider Geneveve™ include:

  • Tampons feel like they might slip out
  • Decreased sensation during intercourse
  • A loss of sexual pleasure
  • Urinary stress incontinence
  • Decreased elasticity in vaginal tissue

Women with pacemakers or defibrillators are not candidates for Geneveve™ treatments.

Your Feminine Rejuvenation Treatment

Geneveve™ is a revolutionary vaginal tightening treatment available in Canada, Europe and, most recently, the United States. This one-time treatment provides results that can last up to 1 year using cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) to heat deep tissue while cooling the surface. This stimulates collagen production, which can gradually tighten and rejuvenate loose vaginal tissue and muscles.

Your vaginal rejuvenation consultation and treatment will be performed Dr. Harrington along with her certified plastic surgery nurse or physician assistant. Geneveve™ does not require local or general anesthesia, as the procedure itself should not be uncomfortable. You may feel a slight warming sensation during treatment. The Geneveve™ device delivers controlled volumetric heating to safely stimulate the production of natural proteins in the skin and tissue. Your procedure should only last about 30 minutes, after which you may return to your normal routine.

Depending on your anatomy and goals, Dr. Harrington may suggest additional or alternative treatments. Women struggling with oversized or uneven labia may be good candidates for labiaplasty. Those with noticeable fat pads over the pubic bone after weight changes or pregnancy may wish to include liposuction of the mons pubis to streamline their figures. Many women choose to include vaginal tightening as part of their mommy makeover. Finally, hormone replacement therapy can help combat symptoms of menopause and other hormonal imbalances, making this holistic approach to health a popular choice for women interested in Geneveve™.

Geneveve™ Downtime

Geneveve™ is a nonsurgical treatment and thus requires no downtime. You may return to your normal routine immediately following your appointment, including exercise and sexual intimacy. The procedure should not result in any changes in odor or discharge.

You should begin to notice your results around 30 days after your Geneveve™ treatment. Your results may continue to develop over about 3 months. While most women only require a single Geneveve™ treatment, some may require a second treatment for more extensive correction. Dr. Harrington will assess your results after 90 days and help you determine whether another treatment is best.

In addition to increased tightening of the vaginal muscles and tissue, most women report feeling significantly more confident during intimacy as a result of their feminine rejuvenation treatment. You may notice improvements in lubrication, arousal, stress incontinence and sexual satisfaction.

Although complications associated with Geneveve™ are rare, it’s still important to discuss any potential risks with Dr. Harrington prior to your treatment. If you notice any sharp pain or sudden swelling, notify our office immediately.
