Once again, we’re glad we got your attention.
A while back, we delved into the topic of P-shots being used as a treatment for erectile dysfunction, and discussed some of the struggles that men face when it comes to performance issues.
But what about women?
Females face just as many issues in their nether regions due to genetics alone, but these are things you don’t hear people talk about very often. We ask; why not? At the end of the day, these things are a part of life (okay, maybe not something you want to talk about over dinner, but still).
In 2018, actress, girl boss, mom, and wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, spoke out about her vaginal rejuvenation treatment during an episode of her Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk. The star spoke candidly about undergoing a radiofrequency treatment to resolve bladder issues.
Women can experience vaginal issues as a result of childbirth, age, lifestyle, or changes in hormones. And these changes can decrease sex drive and cause urinary incontinence. But there are a number of treatments that use radiofrequency which can help.
The Viveve is one of them — a one-time 30-minute nonsurgical procedure which rebuilds the tissue of the vaginal canal.
As well as tightening the vaginal opening (good for you and your partner), the Viveve improves vaginal sensitivity, allows for more overall pleasure, and relieves stress urinary incontinence.
Wondering how exactly it works? Here you go: During the treatment, a patented cryogen-cooled radiofrequency device is used to tighten the tissues around the vaginal opening. After this, a small probe is inserted just inside the vagina and alternatively cools and warms the tissue.
The radio-frequency used then triggers the body’s own ability to heal itself, and as a result, new and stronger collagen is produced. And since no vaginal tissue is damaged during the treatment, no anesthesia is required, which means patients don’t have to worry about any downtime afterwards.
The results of one Viveve treatment are expected to last up to 12 months so aside from any temporary discomfort, the positive effects can last quite long.
Viveve is the first company in the women’s intimate health space to have completed a randomized, blinded placebo-controlled study, the results of which, have been reported with sustained results.
