Just like skin, vaginal tissue relies on collagen for its support. With the normal aging process or physical stresses from childbearing, the tissue can become stretched and weakened. The result is a feeling of vaginal looseness called laxity, the side effects of which can be diminished physical sensation during intercourse and urinary incontinence.
Millions of women suffer with vaginal laxity. In fact, 88% of doctors surveyed said vaginal laxity is the number 1 physical change occurring post vaginal delivery. Vaginal laxity often goes un-reported by their patients, and therefore untreated. 83% of doctors surveyed said vaginal laxity was underreported by their patients. Consequently, vaginal laxity can have a profound effect on a woman’s overall health and well-being.
The Geneveve treatment was specifically designed to help the millions of women who would otherwise silently accept vaginal laxity and the associated conditions. Geneveve works at a cellular level to rebuild and restore collagen within the vaginal tissue – without surgery and without disrupting the surface tissue. During one 30-minute office visit, the Geneveve treatment delivers patented, dual-mode deep heating and surface cooling to stimulate the body’s own natural regenerative processes.
Vaginal laxity involves the full thickness of soft tissue and requires a treatment that reaches the deeper layers of tissue. The Geneveve treatment uses tiny pulses of radiofrequency energy to gently heat the deeper layers of the vaginal tissue whilst simultaneously cooling and protecting the delicate surface.
This unique approach ensures women’s experience is comfortable, quick and typically only one in-office session. Because the surfaces of the vaginal walls are not injured, and only the area just inside the vaginal opening is treated, women can return to normal activities immediately.
Over the next 3 months, the body responds by gradually developing healthy, new collagen so the vaginal tissue is revitalized and sexual sensation and urinary control is improved.
