Are you one of the many women who dribble a bit when you sneeze or who don’t dare jump on the tramp with your kids or who have to wear a pad while running? As women age, especially if they have been pregnant earlier in their lives, the muscles that control urination weaken, causing small amounts of leakage when pressure is placed on the pelvis (such as during sneezing or jumping). This is called stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and is experienced by millions of women.
The Viveve treatment tightens muscles, which can significantly decrease urinary leakage. When a woman has the complaints of peeing during certain activities, the Viveve ultrasound energy is delivered in a way to maximize increased tightness in the muscles around the neck of the bladder and the urethra. Full results take about four months to experience, although many women begin to notice improvement 4-6 weeks after their treatment. Depending upon a woman’s age and the severity of her symptoms, treatments may need to be repeated every 1-3 years.
The Viveve treatment takes 30-60 minutes and is pain free. Women may feel a gentle warmth on their thigh, where a grounding pad is taped. An ultrasound probe is inserted into the vagina and slowly turned as the pulses are dispersed into the muscle layer. There is no downtime with this treatment. The ultrasound energy will also cause an increase in the thickness of the vaginal wall, which helps to improve vaginal lubrication and helps increase sensation during sex for both the woman and her partner.
Dribbling or peeing on yourself during activities is embarrassing and can disrupt life. Don’t continue to allow SUI to impact your life. Call us today at Genesis MedSpa and schedule your free consultation in order to learn more about the Viveve technology.
More about Geneveve™ Vaginal Rejuvenation
Geneveve™ is the only treatment that uses algorithmically-controlled cooling to distribute energy evenly across tissue. Using tiny pulses of cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) energy, Geneveve™ works to selectively heat vaginal tissues, causing contraction. This tightens the tissues and stimulates new collagen formation. One treatment takes about 30 minutes and requires no anesthesia.
Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedure
Geneveve is a comfortable, non-painful procedure and has no down time. Most women notice significant improvement in symptoms 3 -4 months after the treatment is performed.*
