I’m really pleased to tell you about the latest treatment we’re bringing to The Clinic: the Geneveve Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment from Viveve.
Geneveve is a treatment for vaginal laxity – something many women experience after giving birth. As you may know, your pelvic floor is never quite the same post-babies!
Many women struggle with urinary incontinence and a loss of sexual satisfaction, which can have a big impact on their lives. However they often suffer in silence, as it’s not something we find it easy to talk about.
On top of this, we’re not sure if anything can be done, and we struggle to find time to get to the GP.
And that’s why I really wanted to bring the Geneveve treatment to my clients. When I was working as a surgeon I specialised in colorectal and pelvic floor surgery. I also spent three years researching incontinence in women. So I’ve seen first hand the effects vaginal laxity can have on women’s lives and wellbeing. This is such an important topic and it’s something we shouldn’t feel embarrassed to talk about. There is nothing weird or abnormal about this problem and you are not alone!
What is Geneveve?
I’m so impressed by the Geneveve treatment. This minimally invasive, non-surgical technique uses radiofrequency (RF) to stimulate the tissue in the vagina. Just like skin, vaginal tissue is made up of collagen fibres. During childbirth these tissues can overstretch, which damages the collagen. The RF energy in Geneveve encourages natural collagen production. This tightens and strengthens the tissue, improving both urinary incontinence and sexual function.
The other two massive points in its favour: it is pain free and treatment takes just 30 minutes!
The RF is delivered by a small probe (see pic below) and no anaesthetic is required. Patients have described the treatment as giving a tingling or hot or cold sensation.
Another huge benefit: you only need one treatment to get results. And as there is no downtime, you can get straight back to work and exercise immediately after the treatment (although you should not use tampons or have intercourse for 48 hours afterwards).
You can expect to see results from around four weeks post-treatment, as the collagen begins to generate. The best results are apparent after around three months. The benefits from just one treatment last for at least 12 months.
Geneveve is a safe, comfortable and effective treatment for vaginal laxity, giving long-lasting results. What’s not to like?
Although already well-established around the world, Geneveve is currently only available in two clinics in the UK, so I’m really thrilled to be able to offer it to my clients.
