What is Geneveve?
Geneveve is a safe and effective treatment option that employs cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) to produce healthy collagen and a revived sensation of feminine wellness. With this unique treatment, women looking to decrease incontinence, heighten sensation during sex, or reform post-childbirth vaginal laxity may finally obtain the long-lasting results they desire. Geneveve strives to enhance many areas of feminine wellness, often improving:
- Stress or urge urinary incontinence
- Vaginal sensitivity
- Vaginal laxity (looseness or overstretched vaginal wall)
- Vaginal lubrication and reducing painful intercourse
- The quality and intensity of climax
We are proud to become one of the first vConfidence certified providers to offer the Geneveve treatment. Following just one 30-minute treatment, patients can already notice significant improvements in sexual health, stress urinary incontinence, and vaginal laxity. 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.
A trained health care professional utilizes the clinically proven and innovative treatment technology during a 30-minute treatment session to stimulate the body’s natural collagen formation. The advanced procedure both cools and protects the procedural surface while heating and revitalizing deeper tissue. 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.
Who is a good candidate for Geneveve?
Post-Childbirth Vaginal Laxity
Vaginal laxity 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. More specifically, difficulties with vaginal looseness and relaxed tissue following childbirth often cause reduced sexual sensitivity and urinary incontinence. Thankfully, mothers can now receive the innovative new Geneveve treatment as soon as 8 to 12 weeks following childbirth. The advanced technology can now help those struggling, regardless of if it’s after their first baby or their fifth, and help them attain the improvements they have been searching for after just a few weeks.
Women often struggle with a lack of vaginal rigidity and sensitivity, which can cause detriments in sexual stimulation over time. This loose tissue and resulting negative symptoms can often stem from hormone imbalance, childbirth, a medical condition, or age. Women struggling with these issues now have the option of the advanced Geneveve treatment to generate a natural rejuvenation of your tissue, encouraging the vaginal wall to provide more lubrication and sensitivity during sex. The innovative technology 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. Now women who sometimes experience a loss of sensitivity or inadequate climax sensations during sex due to vaginal laxity can see long lasting results in the quality and intensity of climaxes with the help of the Geneveve procedure.
Vaginal Laxity and Urinary Incontinence
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. Difficulties with urinary incontinence are more common among women, especially postpartum, menopausal, or postmenopausal women who struggle with reduced levels of estrogen. Following childbirth, women may also deal with urge incontinence, or a strong need to urinate, but difficulty getting to the toilet in time. Similarly, stress incontinence is characterized by the inability to prevent leaking urine when coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising. Now women looking to improve their urinary incontinence may have an answer in the innovative Geneveve treatment, which can replenish degenerated collagen by stimulating collagen growth. The technology works to improve vaginal laxity through a non-invasive, low-risk application of heat to the vaginal wall. The advanced Geneveve procedure helps the vaginal wall to become more pliant, thus improving tightness and increasing your body’s ability to properly manage urine flow.
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.
Q: Are there any side effects during or after the treatment?
A: Most women don’t experience any side effects during the procedure or afterwards.
Q: Is the treatment painful?
A: During the treatment, most women experience a sensation of heating and cooling, but usually no discomfort or pain.
Q: How long is the Geneveve treatment?
A: The non-invasive, low-risk procedure takes approximately 30 minutes to complete in our office.
Q: Can I go back to work right after the treatment?
A: Yes. In most cases, you can return to normal activity immediately following your treatment.
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: How many applications of the Geneveve treatment will I need to do before I can see results?
A: One application! That’s right, unlike other medical devices that use radio frequency pulses to improve vaginal elastin and collagen, the more advanced and effective Geneveve treatment takes only one 30 minute treatment to see noticeable results.
