Clinical Studies Show Noninvasive Viveve Stops Bladder Leaks
Stress urinary incontinence, a type of bladder leakage, is a medical condition affecting more than 25 million women worldwide. Yet, because many women are embarrassed to talk about it – this problem was largely ignored. And when it was addressed, dangerous and invasive surgery was the only option.
The good news is that a new treatment for bladder leakage from stress urinary incontinence are finally available that are safe, and do NOT require painful surgery.
Viveve Medical, Inc. is a women’s health company dedicated to advancing medical solutions to improve women’s well-being and quality of life. The patented the VIVEVE™ treatment, uses clinically-proven cryogen-cooled, monopolar radiofrequency energy (CMRF) technology to stimulate the production of collagen in areas of the vagina and pelvic floor. By “rejuvenating” the tissues in these areas, both vaginal looseness and frustrating bladder leaks can be reduced or eliminated.
Doctors’ 12 Month Viveve Bladder Leak Treatment Study
Renowned Detroit area plastic surgeon Doctor Ali have helped hundreds of women rejuvenate their vagina and stop frustrating urinary incontinence with revolutionary Viveve. But don’t just take our word for it!
A 12-month pilot study regarding the effects of Viveve Treatment on bladder leaks provided clinical proof that Viveve is effective for treating urinary incontinence. This research was conducted by Doctor Bruce Allan, PhD, MD, FRCS(C).
In the clinical study, patients who underwent treatment with Viveve CMRF technology were followed for 12 months. Each woman in the study was evaluated for bladder leaks as well as for the safety of the treatment. Clinical results were collected at four, six, nine and twelve months after receiving the vaginal rejuvenation treatment.
Two “scoring” questionnaires were given to the patients, and were used to evaluate the results:
- The International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire-Urinary Incontinence Form, and
- The “UDI-6” Urogenital Distress Inventory Form outcome questionnaire
Results of Viveve Bladder Leak Study
The majority of women in the clinical study reported sustained reduction of bladder leak symptoms at 12 months.
The doctors who conducted the study explained that the combined cooling and deep tissue capability of CMRF effectively targeted the connective tissue that supports the structure of both the vagina and the urinary system.
Doctor Allan, leader of the clinical study stated:
“In the pilot study, we found that SUI [stress urinary incontinence, i.e. bladder leak] symptoms were significantly improved … with the potential to represent a major advance in the non-invasive treatment of SUI.”
Additionally, absolutely no device-related safety issues, complications or side effects were reported in any of the patients who received Viveve Treatment for bladder leaks in the study.
How Viveve Stops Bladder Leaks
Stress incontinence occurs when pelvic muscles and tissues supporting the urethra at the opening of the bladder become weakened. Pregnancy and childbirth tends to place a lot of extra pressure on these muscles and tissues, which can cause them to weaken. However, weight gain, hormonal changes, injury and aging can also be a factor. For many women, embarrassing bladder leaks begin begin to surface during perimenopause, when hormonal decline causes the vaginal tissue to become thinner and less elastic.
Safe and effective, Viveve vaginal rejuvenation delivers gentle pulses of radiofrequency energy to the vaginal walls via a slender wand. This deep penetrating thermal energy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, restoring vaginal tone and elasticity.
The Viveve treatment also features a cooling process that ensures the experience is comfortable and painless. Even better, only one Viveve treatment is needed for most women!
Patients universally report that in addition to reduced bladder leaks, vaginal dryness and irritation decreases, and sexual sensation is also improved.
