Viveve for Vaginal Health

Women experience many changes to their body throughout their lifetime. At Stanislaus Integrative Wellness Center, we believe that these changes are to be welcomed and embraced with confidence. However, when the natural effects of life events like childbirth, aging, or menopause cause discomfort, pain, or embarrassment, it’s important to consider a solution that fits your needs.

Dr. Stanislaus Says

"This painless treatment for vaginal atrophy and urinary incontinence combines RF energy with cryotherapy to penetrate into the deeper internal tissues for noticeable results with a single treatment."

Viveve is a nonsurgical vaginal restoration treatment for women who are bothered by vaginal laxity, urinary incontinence, or decreased lubrication. Viveve helps restore the balance of natural collagen and elastin cells in the vaginal tissue to promote healthier vaginal function. This results in better vaginal tone, less bladder leakage, and more satisfying intercourse.

To find out if Viveve is right for you, contact our office by calling (805) 434-3000 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Mareeni Stanislaus. Dr. Stanislaus is a board-certified OBGYN on the Central Coast who offers holistic healthcare for women. Her goal is to provide you with compassionate care while offering comprehensive solutions that support you as a whole person.

How does Viveve work?

Viveve is an innovative vaginal restoration treatment that is beneficial for a variety of issues, including dryness, discomfort, and urinary incontinence. Viveve is completely nonsurgical and requires no pain medication or anesthesia. During the procedure, controlled radiofrequency energy is used to improve vaginal tone by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Viveve treatments are easy and discrete and can be performed in just 30-45 minutes. After only 1 session, you’ll experience noticeable improvements in just a few weeks.

What does Viveve treat?

Viveve is used to treat many common vaginal problems, such as vaginal laxity, dryness, and mild bladder leakage. Viveve is also recommended for women who experience stress urinary incontinence, or SUI, which affects up to 50% of adult women.

How is Viveve different from other vaginal rejuvenation treatments?

Viveve is the only radiofrequency-based vaginal restoration treatment that is clinically proven to provide results with just 1 treatment. Viveve is unique because it delivers uniform, volumetric heat to the vagina while selectively cooling the surface to protect it. This not only makes the procedure extremely safe and comfortable, it also allows more RF energy at greater depth for maximum results.

Is Viveve right for me?

Because all women experience changes in their vaginal tissue throughout their lifetime, Viveve can benefit many women of various ages. Viveve might be right for you if you:

  • Want to enhance sexual satisfaction
  • Are bothered by looseness (laxity) around the vaginal opening
  • Suffer from a leaky bladder (urinary incontinence)
  • Have pelvic floor weakness
  • Experience painful intercourse due to vaginal dryness
  • Desire a single solution to vaginal problems like dryness or laxity

Some women with certain medical conditions may not be eligible for Viveve. Dr. Stanislaus will talk to you about whether Viveve can benefit you, or if another vaginal health procedure would be best.

What can I expect at my Viveve treatment?

Your Viveve treatment is performed at our Templeton office by one of our experienced nurse practitioners. Because Viveve is nonsurgical, there’s no preparation or pain medication needed before your session.

During the procedure, a treatment wand is inserted into the vaginal opening (similar to a vaginal ultrasound). The tip of the wand simultaneously cools the outside tissue while heating the deep tissues beneath. This creates a warming and cooling sensation that is very comfortable. You should not experience pain during the treatment.

After about 30-45 minutes, your Viveve procedure is complete. You can walk out of the office and go back to your normal routine without any signs of treatment. Immediately, your body will start to naturally produce more collagen and elastin, creating a thicker, younger-acting vaginal wall.

How many Viveve treatments do I need?

Our clients typically see results from just 1 Viveve treatment. However, additional treatments can provide even greater effects and may be beneficial.

When will I see the results of my Viveve treatment?

You should notice results within the first few weeks after your treatment. However, as your body continues to produce more collagen and elastin, you will experience even more benefits around 6 – 9 weeks.

How long do the results of Viveve last?

Results of Viveve can last up to 12 months or longer.
