What is Viveve?
Viveve is the breakthrough technology that is changing the lives of women. The Viveve treatment uses clinically-proven cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) to uniformly deliver gentle heating while cooling delicate surface tissue in the vaginal opening. This unique technology stimulates the body’s natural collagen formation process safely and comfortably, renewing vaginal tissue and responsiveness. This treatment is a painless, non-surgical medical procedure.
