Viveve For Intimate Health Q & A

Do I need Viveve for intimate health?

Women often experience vaginal atrophy as a result of changing hormone levels. As your estrogen levels shift during menopause or after childbirth, collagen — a major tissue-strengthening protein — becomes less plentiful. You lose the youthful firmness of the tissue, so it’s no longer lubricated and healthy.

Signs that suggest you’d benefit from Viveve for intimate health include:

  • Changes in the strength of your orgasm or ability to reach one
  • Decreased arousal or physical sensation during intercourse
  • Leaking urine when you laugh, cough, or work out
  • Air passing from your vagina during movement
  • Poor tampon fit
  • Lower self-confidence or sexual self-image

These symptoms can impact your self-confidence and sexual health, but you don’t have to tolerate them. Dr. Grier can address many of these problems with Viveve radiofrequency treatment.

What is Viveve for intimate health?

Viveve uses innovative radiofrequency energy to stimulate changes in your vaginal tissue. After just a single session with this nonsurgical procedure, you’ll experience improved collagen production and remodeling of existing collagen.  

Vaginal tissue becomes stronger and more resilient as a result. You’ll also experience a boost in lubrication so intercourse and desire improve.

What should I expect during treatments using Viveve for intimate health?

Viveve is a comfortable 30-minute treatment performed at Dr. Grier’s office. Dr. Grier inserts a small treatment tip just inside your vaginal opening. This tip rotates while generating radiofrequency energy, alternately cooling the surface of vaginal tissue and heating the soft tissue beneath. 

The outer surface of your vaginal tissue isn’t affected during Viveve treatment. The energy penetrates below to stimulate collagen development.

You won’t need anesthesia or numbing cream for the treatment. 

What are the effects of Viveve for intimate health?

As a result of Viveve radiofrequency treatment, your body generates new collagen and restores existing collagen to revitalize vaginal tissue. You’ll notice the results of greater sensation and lubrication in about 30 days, with optimal results showing in about three months.

Many women choose yearly maintenance treatments to maintain their results from Viveve for intimate health.
