Best Candidates for Viveve

The best candidates for Viveve treatments are women in good general health who feel that they have lost some vaginal tightness. Candidates may have developed vaginal laxity after giving birth or going through menopause, or may struggle with stress incontinence or a lack of sexual pleasure. Women who have pacemakers or defibrillators are not good candidates for Viveve treatments.

Before your consultation, please fill out our Viveve® Patient Intake Form and bring it with you to your appointment.

If you hope to achieve greater pleasure and confidence during intimacy, Dr. Harrington may also recommend the O Spot Shot, a feminine rejuvenation treatment designed to enhance women’s sexual satisfaction. Hormone balancing therapy can also improve symptoms of menopause and other common issues. Dr. Harrington also offers surgical labiaplasty at her plastic surgery center.

What to Expect

Viveve treatments use cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency waves to strengthen and rejuvenate the vaginal muscles and tissue while keeping the surface cool and unharmed. During your Viveve treatment, a handheld device will be used to apply volumetric heating directly to the vaginal canal, stimulating healing and new tissue growth.

Viveve treatments do not require anesthesia and most women report feeling comfortable throughout the procedure. You may feel a slight warming sensation during the treatment itself.

Recovery & Results

Viveve is a nonsurgical procedure that doesn’t require any downtime. You may return to your normal routine immediately following your appointment, and you can resume intercourse after 24 hours.

Your results should develop over the following weeks and months. At 90 days post-treatment, Dr. Harrington will evaluate your results and help you decide whether an enhancement treatment would be best for meeting your needs.

Viveve FAQs

Q. How does Viveve work?
Viveve treatments work by stimulating your body’s natural healing processes using radiofrequency waves. This controlled heating promotes the production of important proteins and new cells within the skin, muscles and tissue, strengthening the vaginal canal.
Q. How long after giving birth should I wait to get Viveve treatments?
After giving birth, you should wait for at least 6 months before having any vaginal rejuvenation treatments. This will give your body a chance to return to normal hormone levels. You may also find that some laxity resolves on its own once your body has enough time to recover from giving birth.
Q. How many Viveve treatments should I get?
Typically, Viveve is a one-time treatment. However, some women may only be able to achieve their desired results after two treatments spaced about 3 months apart. You also may wish to get touch-up treatments once every year or two to maintain your results.
Q. How long does a Viveve treatment take?
Viveve treatments are relatively quick and should only take about 30 minutes.
Q. Does Viveve affect the appearance of the labia?
Viveve can’t remodel external vaginal contours. If this is a concern for you, please discuss your goals in more detail with Dr. Harrington at your consultation.
