In October, Viveve filed a patent infringement lawsuit against ThermiGen, LLC, ThermiAesthetics, LLC, (Thermi) and Dr. Red Alinsod alleging unauthorized use of Viveve’s patented technology.
Viveve is vigorously protecting its robust intellectual property portfolio. In the patent suit Viveve is pursuing all available remedies, including an injunction to prevent Thermi from selling, training, and promoting its accused infringing ThermiVa® treatment.
The lawsuit is based on U.S. Patent No. 8,961,511 entitled “Vaginal Remodeling Device and Methods”, which covers methods for remodeling tissue of the vagina and vulva by applying heat to the target tissue. ThermiGen, LLC, ThermiAesthetics, LLC (Thermi), and Dr. Red Alinsod are accused of willfully infringing Viveve’s patent.
Defendants have disputed the allegations of patent infringement.
