[Media Invite] Viveve Treatment For Women Launched By NeoAsia

Not long ago, NeoAsia, a leading distributor for aesthetics and skincare technology with it's corporate headquarter situated in Singapore, launches VIVEVE.

It may be a difficult subject to bring up to the doctor about personal sexual health or the doctor may not understand individual's overall well-being. A survey of over 400 women who had vaginal deliveries, nearly half reported concern with vaginal looseness, or laxity which may then affect their sexual health and well-being. If Vaginal Laxity is one of your concern, please read on..

VIVEVE is a painless, non-surgical treatment that helps to improve Vaginal Laxity and boost sexual health for women. Singapore is the third country in Asia, after Japan and Hong Kong respectively, to have launched Viveve. The Viveve treatment is the latest technology providing a novel approach to tighten vaginal tissues and is now available at The Sloane Clinic and Cutis Medical Laser Clinics in Singapore.

The Viveve treatment is a solution for women who are experiencing problems with vaginal laxity (loss of tightness due to the vaginal introital (opening area) tissues got overstretched, damaging the collagen fibers), especially for those who are sexually active, have had vaginal childbirth and those are going through menopause. During a vaginal childbirth, the tissues can be overstretched and cause trauma to the pelvic floor ligaments with consequent laxity of the affected tissues.

Vaginal laxity can also result in other physical and psychological consequences, including loss of sensation and sexual dissatisfaction. This is a concern that is often unspoken or invalidated in the discussion with their doctors due to embarrassment or lack of expert understanding in this area. According to a Viveve survey, almost half of the women stated vaginal laxity as a concern after childbirth but only 20 percent discussed the condition with their doctors.

Viveve treatment has been used by thousands of patients worldwide. Our goal is to empower women to take charge of their intimate concerns and pursues sexual satisfaction. By making this treatment available in Singapore, more women here can have access to this procedure and improve overall sexual health and quality of life,” said Patricia Scheller, Chief Executive Officer of Viveve. Scheller was in Singapore together with Dr Bruce Allan from Allan Centre to launch the innovative treatment.

A dialogue session with Patricia Scheller, Dr Sylvia Ramirez, Dr Low Chai Ling, and Dr Bruce Allan was held at Joie by DOZO.

The Viveve System utilises patented radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate the body’s natural collagen rebuilding processes. A medical practitioner will insert a treatment tip, about the size of a thumb, into the vaginal opening and move circumferentially around the area. The Viveve System will deliver pulses of radiofrequency energy to the collagen fibres that make up the underlying tissues, while also cooling the vaginal surface. This process will stimulate the formation of new collagen fibres, resulting in feelings of vaginal tightness and improvement in sexual satisfaction. The Viveve treatment is performed in a physician's office and can be completed in about 30 minutes, with no anaesthesia, and no downtime!

The Viveve's dual heating and cooling capability triggers the body's own natural regenerative process that leads to new and stronger collagen, while maintaining patient safety and comfort. Yes, Viveve treatment is safe and effective with no downtime where radiofreqency energy used in the treatment has been used for over a decade in other medical clinics.

Clinical studies on Viveve have showed significant improvement in vaginal tightness after one 30-minute treatment. At 12 months, improved and sustained tightness was shown by 88% of the women and improvement in sexual satisfaction was indicated in the follow ups. The collagen restoration processes usually take place between 30 – 90 days after treatment with little or no downtime (depends on individual). Patients should be able to experience an improvement in vaginal laxity and sexual satisfaction about 30 days after the treatment. Viveve is the only procedure which is clinically proven to have an effective and long last result after only one treatment. In some cases, patient will be required to receive the treatment once a year to maintain the results.

This treatment is suitable for women from ages 18 to 55 years old with or without at least one vaginal delivery and pre-menopausal.

Q) How have women managed vaginal laxity?
A) Kegel exercises are the most commonly known and prescribed treatment for vaginal laxity. However, while Kegels may help improve the strength of the pelvic floor by improving muscle tone, they do not address lax tissue between the muscle and the vaginal surface. Surgical options currently available to women include significant recovery time and post-procedure pain. These options also involve a variety of health risks and can include high out-of-pocket costs. Therefore, the safe and non-invasive Viveve Treatment works at the cellular level to rebuild and restore collagen.

Refreshments served at the end of the session, loving the Summer Mushroom with Celeriac Puree, Creamy Dill Potato Salad and Pumpkin Risotto!
