As women age, their bodies change, including the vulva and vagina. Reclaiming your vaginal and sexual health is as simple as electing VotivaⓇ as a treatment option. This noninvasive female therapy can address internal as well as external vaginal concerns. The clinically proven wellness technology works to enhance tightness and muscle tone. It can also help treat issues such as dryness, painful intercourse, and stress incontinence. Votiva treatment is a safe and effective alternative to traditional surgery or hormonal treatments.
At Southeastern Institute of Restorative Medicine, Gregory Thompson, DO can help you feel like yourself again using Votiva.
What is Votiva?
Votiva is a state-of-the-art vaginal revitalization system. Votiva treatment is a noninvasive procedure that addresses changes in the internal and external vagina. The process delivers volumetric heating with a handheld device that delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy to the tissues of the vagina and vulva.
Waves of heat promote tissue remodeling by stimulating vaginal cells. RF energy encourages the rapid production of collagen and elastin, allowing for increased vaginal moisture, blood flow, and elasticity. Women who suffer from urinary incontinence can find relief, as can those experiencing hormonal changes from menopause or childbirth.
What to expect
The Votiva system uses the FormaV handpiece to apply heat uniformly to your vaginal lining and labia. Dr. Thompson begins by applying an anesthetic gel to the area for your comfort. Most patients report feeling a heating sensation that causes little to no discomfort.
Heat energy triggers a remodeling of the vaginal tissues, tightening and strengthening the pelvic floor over time. Tightening tissue in the vaginal wall provides a solution for incontinence by acting as a support to the urethra.
The procedure lasts about 15 minutes and requires no downtime. You should feel comfortable resuming your daily activities, as long as you avoid intercourse for up to 48 hours following treatment.
To preserve your results and continue to keep vaginal tissues tight, you should schedule 2 or 3 sessions about 4-6 weeks apart. Results are often seen immediately and tend to improve over time. Your results become most apparent several months after treatment.
