Geneveve Vaginal Rejuvenation
This treatment is ideal for all pre-menopausal women who suffer from urinary incontinence, vaginal laxity (looseness of the vaginal tissue) and/or decreased sexual function, following childbirth. Geneveve is a pain free, quick and effective treatment, and requires no anaesthetic. Read on to find out if this treatment could be right for you.
What is vaginal laxity?
Vaginal laxity is a looseness of the vaginal canal, often caused by child birth. The tissue in the vagina stretches during childbirth and for some women, it does not return to its former condition. This can lead to urinary incontinence, and/or decreased sexual function and satisfaction. For women with urinary incontinence, the thought of bouncing on a trampoline or running for the bus fills them with dread. Their relationship can also suffer due to the decline in sexual function. Vaginal laxity can have a big impact on women’s happiness and wellbeing.
What is Geneveve and how does it work?
Geneveve is a non-surgical treatment for vaginal laxity. It works by using radiofrequency waves (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, which tightens and strengthens the tissue, in turn improving both urinary incontinence and sexual function.
The RF is delivered by a small probe inserted into the vagina. No anaesthetic is required. Patients have described it as a tingling or hot or cold sensation. Treatment takes just 30 minutes, and you need only one treatment to get results. Another benefit is that there is no downtime: you can get straight back to work and exercise immediately after the treatment. However please note that you should not use tampons or have intercourse for 10 days afterwards.
How quickly can I expect to see results?
You can expect to see results from around four weeks post-treatment, as the collagen begins to generate. The best results are obtained around three months post-treatment. The benefits from just one treatment last for at least 12 months.
Who can benefit from Geneveve?
Geneveve is suitable for all pre-menopausal women.
