Viveve vs. Thermiva

Understanding The Private Problems Women Face

Whether it is a physical, psychological or health-related problem, there is a common (often unspoken) need amongst women to feel like their old selves again.

Many women have experienced that the looser an area is down there, the more unsatisfying their sex life is. It can even get to a point where it affects the intimacy of long-term, committed relationships. On top of that, having a looser area could also cause unpleasant medical conditions such as urinary incontinence and urinary stress infection. Unfortunately, many women are also embarrassed to talk about this issue– but we’re here to tell you that you shouldn’t be!

Introducing Vivive

Viveve is a painless, noninvasive ulthera vaginal tightening procedure that can rejuvenate your vaginal area and boost sexual health. Volumetric radio frequency is delivered (90J/cm²) 3-5mm into vaginal tissue, thus improving blood circulation.

Radio frequency then repairs and stimulates the body’s natural collagen formation. The best result is achieved three months later.

Due to childbirth, aging, sex life, and other factors, the collagen and elastin fiber in a women’s vagina is gradually lost.

Viveve provides a safe and comfortable single-session that lasts about 30 minutes. Currently used in many countries around the world, the Geneveve treatment has benefited thousands of women and improved their health and quality of life. Only one treatment is needed every year. It’s Non-painful, non-invasive, has no down time and you can get back to work on the very same day. This treatment is very effective for the loss of vaginal elasticity and dryness due to childbirth.

Difference Between ThermiVa and Viveve?

Meanwhile, there’s another vaginal laxity treatment on the market: Thermiva. Thermiva uses a unipolar radio frequency device that has FDA clearance for dermatologic use. It has been shown to increase collagen formation and also increase blood flow and lubrication to the vagina. Like Viveve, it’s also a non-surgical, painless, scarless treatment with no recovery period. ThermiVa can tighten up both labia and vagina.

For ThermiVa, the therapist has to keep rotating the device during the treatment to deliver the energy deep into the vagina. The way it works is similar to Forma laser. Because of this, it could only stimulate epidermal tissues. 3 – 4 sessions are required to achieve ideal result.

For Viveve, the device will keep shifting between areas, and is able to penetrate deeper giving long term effect after a single session.

Viveve can also be very helpful for those who have severe vaginal laxity issues. In that case, Wave recommends a treatment every 6 months to better help it recover.
