About Viveve

 

Viveve, Inc., the operating subsidiary of Viveve Medical, Inc., is a women’s health company passionately committed to advancing new solutions to improve women’s overall well-being and quality of life. The company’s lead product, the Viveve® System, is a non-surgical, non-ablative medical device that remodels collagen and restores tissue. The Viveve System treats the condition of vaginal laxity, which is the result of the over-stretching of tissue during childbirth that can result in a decrease in physical sensation and sexual satisfaction. Physician surveys indicate that vaginal laxity is the number one post-delivery physical change for women, being more prevalent than weight gain, urinary incontinence or stretch marks. The Viveve Treatment uses patented, reverse-thermal gradient radiofrequency technology to tighten the tissues of the vaginal introitus (opening) and requires only a 30-minute out-patient treatment in a physician’s office. The Viveve System has received regulatory approval in Europe, Canada and Hong Kong and is available through physician import license in Japan. It is currently not available for sale in the U.S. For more information, please visit Viveve’s website at www.viveve.com.
