Why haven’t I heard of this before?

  • The Viveve Treatment was only made available in the US two years ago, however the treatment has had a long track record outside of the US with several hundred of thousands treatment performed.

Why is collagen so important for the body?

  • Collagen fibers provide support to the tissue which can, over time, lose its strength and shape, creating a feeling of looseness (laxity).
  • This loss of collagen can be caused by childbirth, age or certain medical conditions.
  • When you have healthier collagen you can have better sensation, appearance and blood flow.

How does it work?

  • Using dual mode cooling/heating technology, the Viveve System cools and protects the surface tissue while delivering heat to deeper tissues to stimulate collagen production.
  • No general or local anesthesia is required.

Are there any studies that prove the Viveve Treatments’s effectiveness?

  • Yes! The VIVEVE 1 which was published in the Journal for Women’s Health showed a significant improvement in arousal, lubrication and sexual sensation versus the placebo treatment in the United States.

  • No! Viveve Treatment only requires one visit and sustained results at 12 months have been documented.

How is Viveve System different from the lasers we’ve all heard about?

  • Viveve System’s patented cryogen-cooling system allows for deeper heating while protecting the skin’s surface (dermis).
