What is Geneveve?
Geneveve is a safe and effective treatment option that utilizes innovative cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency technology to stimulate the body’s natural collagen formation in order to improve feminine wellness. The Geneveve treatment applies gentle pulses of radio frequency with cutting-edge dual mode equipment to trigger and accelerate your body’s own collagen formation, generating a more youthful tone and resiliency through softer tissue. This advanced technology cools and protects the procedural surface while heating and energizing deeper tissue, providing a safe and efficient treatment. Geneveve strives to enhance many areas of feminine wellness, often improving:
– Vaginal lubrication and reducing painful intercourse
– Vaginal laxity (looseness or overstretched vaginal wall)
– Stress or urge urinary incontinence
– The quality and intensity of climax
– Vaginal sensitivity
We are proud to become one of the first vConfidence certified providers to offer the Geneveve treatment. Geneveve is a clinically proven and innovative treatment option that employs cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) to produce healthy collagen and a revived sensation of feminine wellness. The advanced technology stimulates the body’s natural collagen formation process during a single 30-minute treatment session performed by a trained healthcare professional. Following just one 30-minute treatment, patients can already notice significant improvements in vaginal laxity, sexual health, and stress urinary incontinence.
Who is a good candidate for Geneveve?
Post-Childbirth Vaginal Laxity
Difficulties with vaginal looseness and overstretched tissue following childbirth often cause reduced sexual sensitivity and urinary incontinence. This relaxed tissue is known as vaginal laxity, which is often found in new mothers and results from the expansion of the vagina to accommodate a baby while it makes its way through the birth canal. This condition can lead to a decline in female sexual function, poor body image and overall reduced quality of life. Thankfully, the new Geneveve treatment can aid those suffering, regardless of if it’s after their first baby or their fifth. Mothers can now receive the procedure as soon as 8 to 12 weeks following childbirth and finally see the improvements they have been searching for after just a few weeks.
Due to vaginal laxity, many women may sometimes experience a loss of sensitivity or inadequate climax sensations during sex. Whether these symptoms arise from childbirth, hormone imbalance, age or a medical condition, a lack of vaginal rigidity and sensitivity can cause detriments in sexual stimulation over time. The innovative technology of the Geneveve can gently use radio frequencies to repair existing tissue to help restore the elastin and collagen that make for a healthy, tight and sensitive vagina. This stimulation can generate a natural rejuvenation of your tissue, encouraging the vaginal wall to provide more lubrication and sensitivity during sex. Geneveve’s long-lasting results can also aid in the quality and intensity of climaxes and create a more sensational experience for you and your partner.
Vaginal Laxity and Urinary Incontinence
Urinary incontinence can result from vaginal laxity due to a decrease in estrogen levels and subsequent deterioration of collagen, which reduces the vulvo-vaginal mucosa. Stress incontinence is a more specific condition and is characterized by the inability to prevent leaking urine when sneezing, laughing, exercising or coughing. Following childbirth, women often deal with a strong need to urinate, but struggle getting to the toilet in time, this is referred to as urge incontinence. Difficulties with urinary incontinence are more common among women, especially postmenopausal, postpartum, menopausal women. Urinary incontinence and the subsequent symptoms can now be treated with the innovative Geneveve procedure. Most often, incontinence in menopausal and postmenopausal women is due to reduced levels of estrogen and collagen atrophy, Geneveve can now work to replenish this degenerated collagen. This new foundation of stronger tissue can then help the vaginal wall to become more pliant, and improve tightness to increase your body’s ability to properly manage urine flow. The non-invasive low-risk treatment applies its advanced radiofrequency technology to the vaginal wall in order to stimulate collagen growth, improve vaginal laxity and increase feminine wellness.

Q: What is Radio Frequency technology?
A: Radio frequency (RF) technology has been used in medical applications for over 75 years. Systems based on radio frequency have been successfully used for non-ablative skin rejuvenation, treatment of unwanted hair, atrophic scar revision, inflammatory acne and vascular lesions. The radio frequency device produces a heating of the collagen helix in the applied area, causing proteins to reform and rebuild.
