Also known as loss of bladder control or bladder leakage, urinary incontinence is a common yet embarrassing issue. While some women with urinary incontinence face occasional, minor urine leaks, others lose minor to moderate amounts of urine on a regular basis.
If you are suffering from urinary incontinence, you know just how much it can hinder your emotional, psychological, and social life. It can prevent you from participating in everyday activities and living life to the fullest.
The good news is that there is a solution to urinary incontinence. It’s called Viveve®. Viveve® is a quick treatment that comes with virtually no downtime and helps you to reduce urine leakage. Keep reading to learn about what Viveve® is and how it can improve your quality of life.
What is Viveve®?
Viveve® uses deep heating and surface cooling to stimulate your body’s own cells to produce collagen. Over time, the collagen regenerates and creates tighter and healthier vaginal tissues.
While Viveve® is known as a pain-free treatment, you may experience waves of warmth that alternate with a cool rush. Rest assured that these changes in temperature are mild and will not leave you with any discomfort.
If you lead a busy life, you’ll be thrilled to find out that a Viveve® session can be completed in as little as 30 minutes. Once you receive it, you’ll be able to return to work, child care, and your other responsibilities right away. You’ll also be able to resume sexual activity 48 hours after treatment.
Generally, you will begin to notice results after about 30 days and find that it takes about 3 months for the full results to become apparent. Although results vary from patient to patient, you can expect them to last for about a year.
Benefits of Viveve®?
While the greatest benefit of Viveve® is its ability to provide you relief from urinary incontinence, there are a number of other benefits of this procedure. You may enjoy improved arousal, lubrication, and sexual satisfaction. In addition, you can feel more confident during intimate activities with your partner and truly enjoy your time with them.
