Geneveve Q & A

What is Geneveve?

We are proud to become one of the first vConfidence certified providers to offer the Geneveve treatment. Geneveve is a clinically proven and innovative treatment option that employs cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) to produce healthy collagen and a revived sensation of feminine wellness. The advanced technology stimulates the body’s natural collagen formation process during a single 30-minute treatment session performed by a trained health care professional. Following just one 30-minute treatment, patients can already notice significant improvements in vaginal laxity, sexual health and stress urinary incontinence.

Geneveve is a safe and effective treatment option that cools and protects the area of concern while heating and revitalizing deeper tissue. The technology’s cutting-edge dual mode applies gentle pulses of radio frequency to trigger and accelerate your body’s own collagen development, generating softer tissue and a more youthful tone and resiliency. With this unique treatment, women looking to improve post-childbirth vaginal laxity, decrease incontinence or heighten sensation during sex may finally obtain the long-lasting results they desire.

After receiving a Geneveve treatment, patients require no downtime and may continue regular activities, the same day as treatment. Procedure sessions require no anesthesia and are completely painless. Geneveve strives to improve many areas of feminine wellness, often resulting in the enhancement of:

  • Stimulating vaginal lubrication and reducing painful intercourse
  • Improving vaginal sensitivity
  • Repairing vaginal laxity (looseness or overstretched vaginal wall)
  • Decreasing stress or urge incontinence
  • Improving the quality and intensity of climax

 

Who is a good candidate for Geneveve?

Vaginal Laxity and Urinary Incontinence

Following childbirth, women often deal with a strong need to urinate, but struggle getting to the toilet in time, this is referred to as urge incontinence. Stress incontinence is a similar difficulty and is characterized the inability to prevent leaking urine when coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising. This urinary incontinence can result from vaginal laxity due to a decrease in estrogen levels and subsequent deterioration of collagen, which reduces the vulvo-vaginal mucosa. The Geneveve treatment stimulates collagen growth to improve vaginal laxity through a non-invasive, low-risk application of heat to the vaginal wall. Difficulties with urinary incontinence are more common among women, especially postpartum, menopausal, or postmenopausal women. Most often incontinence in menopausal and postmenopausal women is due to reduced levels of estrogen, and with Geneveve replenishing the degenerated collagen, the vaginal wall can become more pliant, thus improving tightness and increasing your body's ability to properly manage urine flow.

Post-Childbirth Vaginal Laxity

Difficulties with vaginal looseness and overstretched tissue following childbirth often cause reduced sexual sensitivity and urinary incontinence. This relaxed tissue is known as vaginal laxity, which is often found in new mothers and results from the expansion of the vagina to accommodate a baby while it makes its way through the birth canal. This condition can lead to a decline in female sexual function, poor body image and overall reduced quality of life. Thankfully, the new Geneveve treatment can aid those suffering, regardless of if it’s after their first baby or their fifth. Mothers can now receive the procedure as soon as 8 to 12 weeks following childbirth and finally see the improvements they have been searching for after just a few weeks.

Sexual Sensitivity

Many women may sometimes experience a loss of sensitivity or inadequate climax sensations during sex due to vaginal laxity. This loose tissue and resulting negative symptoms can often stem from hormone imbalance, childbirth, a medical condition, or age. Consequently, a lack of vaginal rigidity and sensitivity can cause detriments in sexual stimulation over time. Women struggling with these issues now have the option of the advanced Geneveve treatment, which can gently use radio frequencies to repair existing tissue to help restore the elastin and collagen that make for a healthy, tight and sensitive vagina. The long lasting results obtained in this procedure can help aid in the quality and intensity of climaxes and create a more sensational experience for you and your partner. Geneveve’s stimulating treatment can generate a natural rejuvenation of your tissue, encouraging the vaginal wall to provide more lubrication and sensitivity during sex, and improve overall feminine wellness.

FAQs

Q: How long do the results last?

A: The procedure is designed to produce results that last a year, and for some women, much longer.

Q: Is the treatment painful?

Q: What is Radio Frequency technology?

A: Radio frequency (RF)  technology has been used in medical applications for over 75 years. Systems based on radio frequency have been successfully used for non-ablative skin rejuvenation, treatment of unwanted hair, atrophic scar revision, inflammatory acne and vascular lesions. The radio frequency device produces a heating of the collagen helix in the applied area, causing proteins to reform and rebuild.
