What Is The Viveve System?
The Viveve System, formerly known as Geneveve, provides the only single treatment option to resolve vaginal laxity, incontinence, and dryness. It is a fantastic choice for women who desire a one-time, 25-minute procedure to improve symptoms of laxity or loss of sensation, urge incontinence, stress incontinence, and overactive bladder.
We recommend The Viveve System strongly over ThermiVa because the treatment uses clinically-proven cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) to uniformly deliver gentle volumetric heating while cooling delicate surface tissue. This unique technology stimulates the body’s natural collagen formation process. Doctors and patients report that treatments deliver a noticeable tightening of the entire vaginal barrel for increased friction and pleasure during sexual intimacy, greater bladder control, and more youthful vaginal tissue.
The 3D animation in this video demonstrates the benefits of this in-office treatment on the development of collagen in the treated area. The Viveve procedure can be used to decrease the effects of incontinence, vaginal laxity or diminished sexual satisfaction, and is offered as an option by Drs. Kimble and Kimble in Pasadena, CA.
How Does The Viveve System Work?
This system utilizes cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) technology to create volumetric heating at exact temperatures to stimulate robust neocollagenesis. The energy is controlled by specific algorithms to deliver evenly and consistently deep into the tissue to stimulate the healing response. The procedure is pain-free, and fast with no downtime.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
The Viveve System consists of a single 25-minute procedure. While ThermiVa requires three separate 30-minute procedures, The Viveve System can achieve fantastic results with no post-procedure downtime in only a single treatment.
Does The Viveve System Require Downtime?
The Viveve System procedure is an excellent option for patients who want absolutely no downtime, great results, and long-term success. Most patients are able to resume their regular activities immediately following their visit. Contact us today to set up your complimentary consultation for treatments.
What Are the Results of The Viveve System?
This procedure produces outstanding results, including the thorough remodeling of the vaginal tissue in addition to re-establishment of a firmer, more youthful vaginal wall which will provide deep support for the urethra and surrounding tissues. You can return to your regular activity more or less immediately, including sexual intercourse. At the Women’s Center for Pelvic Wellness, we achieve outstanding results that empower women, allowing them to enjoy life once again.

A New Addition to the Mommy Makeover
Radiofrequency has shown remarkable promise in tightening the vagina both internally and externally. Women who feel that they are floppy or loose, or are experiencing some incontinence post childbirth are possible candidates for this treatment. Please note: In some cases, a surgical approach may be required. Please see our Vaginoplasty page for the surgical answer to vaginal tightening.
