Geneveve™ by Viveve - Feel Sensational!
A Simple Treatment for Vaginal Laxity that Can Impact Overall Well-being
Geneveve™ is a new way to rejuvenate your vaginal tissue and reawaken sexual sensation.
Just like skin, vaginal tissue relies on collagen for its support. With the normal aging process or physical stresses from childbearing, the tissue can become stretched and weakened. The result is a feeling of vaginal looseness called laxity, the side effects of which can be diminished physical sensation during intercourse and urinary incontinence.
What is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence, or loss of bladder control, is a frustrating problem for millions of Americans. Never knowing when and where you might have an accident can affect everything from work to exercise to your social life. It happens to both men and women, but it’s more common in women. Studies show that at least half of older women may have some form of incontinence.
The main symptom is peeing unexpectedly, but there are different types of incontinence. If you leak a bit when you laugh, cough, sneeze, jog, or lift something heavy, you may have stress incontinence. This is the most common bladder control problem in younger women.
Stress incontinence happens when the muscles and tissues around the opening of the bladder get weak. When there’s more pressure against the bladder and this opening doesn’t stay closed, leakage happens. Pressure from coughing or laughing may be all it takes for you to leak. There are a few reasons why these muscles can lose strength: They may be stretched by weight gain, a sports injury, or pregnancies and vaginal childbirths.
It is extremely common to experience changes in vaginal tissue with age or after childbirth, which can lead to:
- Air passing from the vagina
- Decreased sensation during intimacy
- Less satisfaction from intercourse
- Increased self-consciousness
Millions of women suffer with vaginal laxity. In fact, 88% of doctors surveyed said vaginal laxity is the number 1 physical change occurring post vaginal delivery. Vaginal laxity often goes un-reported by their patients, and therefore untreated. 83% of doctors surveyed said vaginal laxity was underreported by their patients.
Consequently, vaginal laxity can have a profound effect on a woman’s overall health and well-being
About the Geneveve Treatment
The Geneveve treatment was speciﬁcally designed to help the millions of women who would otherwise silently accept vaginal laxity and the associated conditions. Geneveve works at a cellular level to rebuild and restore collagen within the vaginal tissue – without surgery and without disrupting the surface tissue. During one 30-minute office visit, the Geneveve treatment delivers patented, dual-mode deep heating and surface cooling to stimulate the body’s own natural regenerative processes.
How Geneveve Works
The Geneveve treatment is a respectful, comfortable, 30-minute, single-session, in-office treatment that does not require local or topical numbing medication. At the beginning of the procedure, the practitioner inserts a treatment tip (the size of a thumb) just inside the vaginal opening. This tip is circumferentially rotated around the opening of the vagina delivering just the right delivery of alternating pulses of heating and cooling. The vaginal tissue reacts to the heat by replenishing new youthful, cushioning collagen within the tissue. Everyone’s baseline level of laxity and natural response mechanisms vary but results typically peak at about 90 days and are still evident at 12 months.
THAT RENEWED FEELING
Geneveve is a unique treatment that generates healthy collagen and a renewed feeling of fitness. The dualmode Geneveve treatment cools and protects the surface while heating deeper tissue. Because Geneveve uses tiny pulses of gentle energy, the right amount of heat – for the right amount of time – is delivered to reinvigorate tissue.
SAFE AND SOUND
The Geneveve treatment is both safe and effective. With just one comfortable 30-minute treatment we’ll get you back to your regular activities immediately and on your way to feeling even more sensational.
Most women know about highly invasive surgical procedures, which are expensive, can have long and extremely painful recovery times and carry significant risk. Now there is a discreet way to safely and effectively renew satisfaction – with the Geneveve treatment.
QUICK AND COMFORTABLE
Geneveve is a comfortable 30-minute treatment performed in your doctor’s office. During the visit, a small treatment tip, about the size of your thumb, is inserted just inside the vaginal opening. The tip is rotated while it alternately cools the surface and heats the soft tissue beneath. With Geneveve the surface vaginal tissue is not injured, so you can immediately get back to your normal activities – including intimacy!
Your body responds to the Geneveve treatment by generating stronger collagen, more resilient cushioning in the vaginal opening. Women typically begin to feel the results at about 30 days and the full effect at about 90 days. Depending on how you respond, your doctor may recommend a touch up treatment every year or as you see fit.
Women all over the world (and their partners too) agree the Geneveve vaginal rejuvenation treatment works. You too can enjoy the benefits! Ask your doctor about Geneveve today.
Frequently Asked Questions About Geneveve
Why would I consider Geneveve?
If you are experiencing the following, you may want to talk to a healthcare professional about Geneveve:
- Do tampons feel like they are slipping out?
- Does your vagina feel loose during intimacy?
- Have you noticed a decrease in physical sensation during intimacy?
- Is the fit with your partner not as snug as in the past?
- Do you sometimes feel air flowing from your vagina?
What is vaginal laxity?
Just like skin, vaginal tissue is made up of collagen fibers. Over time or with trauma the collagen can lose its strength and shape, creating a feeling of looseness (laxity), especially around the vaginal opening. Common causes of vaginal laxity include childbirth, other physical stress on the tissue, aging, genetic pre-disposition and lifestyle.
If you experience vaginal laxity, you may also notice a decreased feeling of sensation and satisfaction during intercourse.
How common is vaginal laxity?
Vaginal laxity is an extremely common medical condition. A Viveve-sponsored survey of U.S. OB/GYN physicians revealed that vaginal laxity is the number one physical change that they see or their patients report following vaginal delivery; more common than weight gain, incontinence, or stretch marks. In a survey of more than four hundred women in the U.S. who had vaginal deliveries, nearly half reported some level of concern with vaginal laxity.
What do I do if I have vaginal laxity?
There are multiple ways women can address vaginal laxity:
- Kegel exercises may be the most commonly known and prescribed treatment because they can strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. However, while Kegels may improve muscle tone, they do not address the loss of elasticity in the soft tissue that rests upon the muscle and contributes to vaginal laxity.
- Surgical options may be effective but also may entail significant health risks, recovery time, post-procedure pain and out-of-pocket costs.
- Geneveve works at the cellular level to rebuild and restore collagen, without harming the vaginal opening. Currently, Geneveve is specifically designed for vaginal laxity and sexual function and has been shown to be safe and effective in a large, randomized, blinded and placebo-controlled clinical trial.
What is the Geneveve treatment like?
Geneveve is a comfortable, 30-minute treatment that does not require local or topical anesthesia or analgesics. Geneveve is performed by a trained healthcare professional in an outpatient setting. Geneveve uses gentle, deep heating and surface cooling to stimulate the body’s natural collagen formation process, which revitalizes and tightens tissue just inside the vaginal opening. Because the surface of the vaginal walls is not injured, patients typically return to normal activities immediately.
What are the benefits of the Geneveve treatment?
Viveve has conducted multiple clinical studies on the Geneveve treatment. Two clinical studies showed statistically significant improvement in vaginal tightening, to pre-childbirth levels, at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months following a single, comfortable office-based treatment. At 12 months, improved and sustained tightening was shown in 90% of the women. Significant improvement in sexual satisfaction was also indicated through 12-month follow-up.
A third large, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical study showed that women who received the Geneveve treatment were 3 times more likely to report achieving “no vaginal laxity” at 6 months than women who did not receive the treatment, with no additional safety risks.
Is the Geneveve treatment safe?
Yes, It is safe and effective!
Who can have the Geneveve treatment?
Your doctor will determine if Geneveve is right for you based on your medical history. However, you should NOT consider Geneveve if you have an implantable pacemaker or an Automatic Implantable Cardioverter/Defibrillator (AICD) or any other implantable metal device.
Who performs the treatment?
The Geneveve treatment is performed by a trained healthcare practitioner in a medical office or outpatient clinic.
