Improve Your Feminine Health with Geneveve

Women’s bodies go through a lot throughout their lives, including childbirth, aging, and menopause. All of these factors can lead to a variety of uncomfortable issues, including vaginal laxity, stress urinary incontinence, urge incontinence, vaginal dryness, and lack of sensation. If you are experiencing these feminine issues but do not wish to undergo invasive surgery, Geneveve may be right for you. Read on to learn more about this vaginal rejuvenation treatment.

How Does It Work?

Geneveve is a completely non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure, and is the only treatment to use algorithmically-controlled cooling to help evenly distribute energy across tissues. During treatment, a wand attached to a table top unit will deliver tiny pulses of cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) energy. This energy selectively heats vaginal tissues, causing contraction and stimulates collagen formation.  Only one, 30-minute treatment is needed, there is no anesthesia involved!

Geneveve Results

Because Geneveve is non-surgical, there is no downtime involved after treatment, and you can return to your everyday activities right away. Some patients may experience mild redness, swelling, or a tingling sensation after their treatment, but this should resolve quickly. The formation of collagen in vaginal structures will occur gradually over the course of 2-3 months, and results will continue to improve for 6-12 months, so you can enjoy an improvement in symptoms for months to come!

Overall, patients who undergo Geneveve treatments see a great improvement in their uncomfortable feminine issues, and a boost in self-confidence.
