The VIVEVE Treatment For Women’s Wellness

Dr. Ryan Myers of Prestige Medical Care has met the growing demand for non-invasive medical procedures geared towards women’s health and intimate wellness. As the first provider of the Viveve treatment in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area, Dr. Myers has seen firsthand that the complaints and effects of vaginal laxity are quite common. He is pleased to offer the safe and effective technology of Viveve.

A Common Female Condition

Just like the skin, vaginal tissue changes over time. The collagen fibers lose their youthful strength and vitality due to aging, childbirth, genetics, and lifestyle. This collagen loss and tissue change can be a cause of urinary incontinence, reduced lubrication during intimacy, and diminished arousal and sensation.

Is the Viveve Treatment Right For You?

During a Viveve consultation, the extent that vaginal laxity symptoms are affecting daily activities and quality of life will be discussed. Questions commonly asked are:

  • Do you leak urine when you laugh, cough, sneeze or workout?
  • Have you noticed decreased arousal or diminished orgasm during intercourse?
  • Do you wear panty liners daily as a protection for leakage?
  • Is vaginal dryness causing discomfort?
  • Do tampons slip or not feel as snug?

How Does Viveve Work?

Viveve treats vaginal tissue using cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF). The gentle pulses of CMRF energy activate your body’s natural renewal response to generate new collagen and restore existing collagen.

This 30-minute, in-office treatment is a safe, non-surgical option for women who want to counter the physical changes that are impacting their daily lives. Simultaneous surface cooling and deep heating ensure a comfortable patient experience. During the Viveve treatment the surface of the vaginal tissue is not injured. No anesthesia or numbing cream is needed.

What Results Can You Expect From Viveve?

The natural collagen rebuilding process begins immediately and continues gradually over 30–90 days. Each patient is different, however many notice improvement and benefits within the weeks following treatment. Sustained results are documented at 12 months.

The Viveve system is approved in over 50 countries for the treatment of urinary incontinence, vaginal laxity or sexual function, and use in general surgery for electrocoagulation and hemostasis in the U.S. The VIVEVE I clinical study published in the Journal of Women’s Health showed a significant improvement in arousal, lubrication, and orgasm versus the placebo treatment. Noted improvements were seen in physical sensation/arousal, lubrication, and orgasm. Studies also show that improved pelvic health can reduce urinary incontinence.

The results of a recent 12-month study found that women who received the Viveve treatment experienced a 72% decrease in urine leakage
