Are you searching for a non-invasive solution for vaginal laxity? Geneveve by Viveve has quickly gained a reputation as a safe and effective treatment for this and other feminine problems. But does the Geneveve treatment for vaginal laxity have adverse side effects?
What Causes Vaginal Laxity?
The vaginal wall is made up of collagen fibers that keep it toned and tight, but over time the collagen structure changes, causing the vagina to become lax and loose. This often leads to a decline in vaginal sensation and lubrication and reduces satisfaction with intercourse.
What is Geneveve?
Geneveve is a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment that increases the tightness and elasticity of the vaginal wall, using monopolar radiofrequency (RF) energy. Treatment takes only 30 minutes, and there is no downtime, so patients can resume normal activities after treatment. Results last for up to 1 year.
How Geneveve Helps Treat Vaginal Laxity
The Geneveve system delivers RF energy that deep heats the connective tissue of the vaginal wall. This triggers collagen renewal, and as more collagen is produced, the vagina becomes tighter.
Does the Geneveve Treatment Have Adverse Side Effects?
Geneveve uses gentle pulses of RF energy to treat the vaginal tissue, but the overlying tissue is not damaged during the procedure, so there is little chance of any adverse side-effects. In addition, the RF energy is gentle on the delicate vaginal tissues.
Viveve also carried out clinical studies to evaluate the effect of Geneveve on women that experienced changes in their body after vaginal delivery, and no adverse events were reported.
However, after treatment, some patients may experience mild side-effects such as redness, slight swelling, a tingling sensation, or vaginal discharge, but these generally resolve quickly.
