Q3 Financial Results
"Since launching commercially in Q3 2015, we have seen continued sales momentum around the globe. We believe we are well positioned to build on our rapidly expanding commercial footprint, particularly given recent regulatory clearances," stated Scott Durbin, Viveve's chief financial officer.

Revenue for the third quarter of 2016 totaled $1,849,000 from the sale of 47 Viveve Systems, 522 disposable treatment tips and other ancillary consumables, compared to revenue of $584,000 for the same period in 2015, an increase of $1,265,000 or 217%.

Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2016 increased 63% to $5,326,000 from $3,272,000 in the same period in 2015, primarily as a result of increased efforts to support commercialization of our product in existing and new markets, increased research and development efforts, and implementation of strategies to protect our intellectual property. Spending on research and development during the third quarter of 2016 increased due to costs associated with increased engineering and development work with our contract manufacturer. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2016 increased primarily due to increased sales and marketing efforts to build brand and market awareness.
