Viveve Announces Presentation at World Meeting on Sexual Medicine
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/09/14 -- Viveve Medical, Inc. ("Viveve") (PINKSHEETS: PLCSD), a company focused on women's health, has announced that today Dr. Michael Krychman will present on the Viveve System as a non-invasive treatment for vaginal introital laxity to improve sexual function in adult females during the 16th World Meeting on Sexual Medicine which is taking place in Sao Paulo, Brazil from October 8-12, 2014.
The presentation highlighted the results from two clinical studies in which the Viveve® System, a non-surgical, non-ablative medical device, is used to treat vaginal laxity which results from the over-stretching of the vaginal tissue during childbirth, and for other reasons. The treatment works by remodeling collagen and restoring the tissue in the vaginal introitus. The studies, conducted in the United States and Japan, demonstrated that the 30-minute, outpatient procedure resulted in a statistically significant improvement in vaginal laxity and sexual satisfaction in women to their pre-childbirth levels.
According to Dr. Krychman, a world renowned specialist in sexual health and the Executive Director of The Southern California Center for Sexual Health and Survivorship, "These results show that patients demonstrated significant improvement after treatment with the Viveve System. With excellent efficacy, a strong safety profile, and fast patient recovery, the Viveve Treatment allows doctors to address a condition that can profoundly impact a woman's quality of life."
"This presentation highlights the unique capabilities of the Viveve System," said Patricia Scheller, CEO of Viveve. "It is the only procedure that is simple, does not require anesthesia or analgesics, and for which there are no post-operative patient restrictions or lengthy recovery times."
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, which can result in a decrease in sexual function and physical sensation. 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.
