What is SUI?


Stress urinary incontinence is a condition that affects up to 50% of women at some point in life.

The top causes of SUI include vaginal trauma, particularly related to childbirth, sports or intensive workouts, obesity, past pelvic surgery, aging, and chronic cough or straining, according to the FDA. If you have chronic SUI, it can severely affect your quality of life. Living with a leaking bladder is uncomfortable, embarrassing, and inconvenient to say the least. Viveve is an SUI treatment that can help. Celebrity Jada Pinkett Smith sparked national interest in vaginal rejuvenation by revealing she had a similar treatment on an episode of the Red Table Talk. Like the estimated 40% of women that have vaginal laxity, the problem can affect anyone.

How does Viveve work?

Viveve is a non-surgical procedure that is used to stop SUI in women.

An ergonomic device is placed inside the vaginal opening. Radiofrequency energy creates gentle heat to stimulate vaginal tissue repair and thickening with collagen induction. This helps stop urine leaking when you cough, sneeze or laugh. Patients are able to achieve results in just one Viveve treatment. It only takes 30 to 45 minutes. Unlike more invasive methods of vaginal rejuvenation, there is no surgery, cutting, or downtime involved.

What is the Viveve procedure like?


A small wand that emits radiofrequency energy (RF) is placed in the vaginal opening.

The insertion of the RF device is not painful, but some discomfort is expected. Heat, generated from the radiofrequency device, is experienced during the procedure, but the tissue is kept comfortable with a cooling gel. You’ll be fully awake during the procedure and may drive yourself home afterward. Viveve is offered at Zelko Aesthetics, with comfortable treatment rooms and a warm, inviting atmosphere. Our staff practices the utmost discretion so no one will know you had the treatment done.

As a Midwest cosmetic surgeon that was formerly an OB/GYN for 20 years, Dr. Timothy Zelko is uniquely qualified when it comes to helping women that struggle with the discomfort of stress urinary incontinence. He strives to make women feel safe and comfortable throughout the consultation process and understands that SUI is a deep and personal issue for many women.

The goal of the consultation is not to talk you into Viveve for SUI, but instead to provide information and answer all your questions so you can make an informed choice. Viveve is highly effective and provides a vast improvement to a woman’s quality of life by fixing stress urinary incontinence without surgery. Dr. Zelko will let you know what the procedure can and cannot do, what to expect during and after treatment, and provide the full cost of Viveve. If you consent to the treatment, it can be performed in-office on the same day, or scheduled for a later date that fits your schedule.

Does Viveve hurt?

The treatment for Viveve is not painful itself, thanks to the use of a patented cryogen-cooling solution that is applied prior to treatment. It is so painless, that there is no need for a local anesthetic.

What is Viveve recovery like?

After Viveve, patients are asked to abstain from sex for at least 2 days, like most RF vaginal rejuvenation treatments for SUI. Viveve side effects may include light spotting and mild swelling for a few days after treatment. Discomfort is minimal and side effects resolve quickly.

What Viveve results can I expect?


Viveve provides a noticeable reduction in SUI symptoms. It improves the thickness of the vaginal tissue to stop leaking urine. A single Viveve treatment is all that is needed to see results. Other RF vaginal rejuvenation treatments require multiple treatment sessions, so if you are looking for a convenient, one-time treatment that delivers real results, you will love Viveve.

Does insurance cover Viveve for SUI?

Insurance does not cover the Viveve procedure. Viveve is regarded as a cosmetic treatment by insurance companies, and it typically does not fall in the category of “medically necessary”.
