What are the benefits of the Viveve Treatment?
Two clinical studies have been published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine and the Journal of Women’s Health. Results analyzed from studies done with a total of 54 in the U.S. and Japan Studies showed statistically significant improvement in vaginal tightness, to pre-childbirth levels, at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months following treatment. At 12 months, improved and sustained tightness was shown by 88% of the women. Significant improvement in sexual satisfaction was indicated through 12 month follow-up. These results were achieved after a single, painless, office-based Viveve Procedure.
Who performs the procedure?
The Viveve Treatment is performed by a trained physician in their medical office or clinic.
Is the Viveve Treatment safe?
Based on available clinical data, the Viveve Treatment is safe and effective. Government regulatory agencies, in countries where the Viveve System is available for sale, have reviewed the safety profile in detail, prior to granting a medical device license or approval to sell or distribute the product.
What are the potential side effects of the Viveve Treatment?
Side effects seldom occur and are typically mild, temporary, and resolve shortly after treatment. They can include: slight, white vaginal discharge; redness or swelling; slight abdominal discomfort, focal, transient altered sensation and tingling following treatment.
In rare cases, a Viveve patient could develop an infection requiring antibiotics. Although no permanent complications have been reported to date, there is a remote possibility of damage to the urethra or rectum.
Who should not consider having the Viveve Treatment?
The Viveve Treatment is contraindicated for patients with either an implantable pacemaker or an AICD (Automatic Implantable Cardioverter/Defibrillator) or any other implantable device as they may be adversely affected by radiofrequency (RF) fields or current.
