Get to Know More About This Revolutionary Vaginal Health Treatment.
Votiva is a game-changer in vaginal restoration. Whether you are suffering from low sex drive, vaginal dryness or urinary incontinence, Votiva may be the solution you are looking for.
At Dr. Alice Yung, we are proud to offer Votiva, a safe and effective treatment for vaginal rejuvenation.
What is Votiva?
Votiva is a non-invasive treatment that gently delivers radiofrequency energy to heat the vagina. Votiva safely stimulates collagen production naturally, offering an advanced solution to age-related problems such as laxity, as well as labor and childbirth stresses. Increased collagen production ends skin laxity, rebuilds healthy tissue, increases sensitivity, and improves lubrication naturally. Results continue improving over time because of the abundance of collagen.
Votiva also boosts sexual interest, especially after menopause, and improves blood flow while treating interior and exterior feminine issues. Previously, most of these vaginal issues were only addressed by surgical intervention until this new technological advancement became the gold standard for vaginal rejuvenation.
Who is a good candidate for Votiva Treatments?
Votiva treats internal and external vaginal tissues; therefore, it addresses many feminine health conditions without surgery. It has minimal risks, and women of any age and stage of life can benefit from the treatments. The treatment addresses various vaginal areas, including the labia, vaginal canal, and vulva.
Votiva is intended for women who want to reverse any changes in their vaginal tone caused by pregnancy, childbirth, perimenopausal, and menopausal symptoms. It is also ideal for women who have the following symptoms:
- Decreased sexual interest and low self-esteem
- Urinary stress incontinence due to pressure from laughing, coughing, sneezing, or jumping
- Pain during sex
- Vaginal dryness
- Low blood flow and sensitivity
- Slight vaginal discharge
- Redness in the vaginal tissues
- Reduced elasticity and wrinkling of the labia and vulva
- Women who want cosmetic improvements in their vagina, such as sagging tissues
- Pain sensation caused by labial hypertrophy
How Does Votiva Rejuvenate the Vaginal Area?
Vaginal laxity is caused by decreased or absence of collagen and elastin, which reduce significantly due to age. Lack of collagen leads to relaxed and saggy internal and external vaginal tissues. Votiva can be used to treat these vaginal concerns and is FDA-approved.
Votiva technology is based on radiofrequency engineering using heat from a small wand or probe to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the sublayers of the skin. Collagen production addresses wrinkling and stretched-out tissues, successfully tightening, toning, and improving the skin’s texture around the vaginal area. It also enhances the regrowth of vaginal mucosa and improves blood flow. Radiofrequency technology has become the gold standard in cosmetic and vaginal rejuvenation.
Votiva uses two parts of treatments known as FormaV or FractoraV, depending on the issues that are being addressed. The treatments can be combined or used separately depending on the unique goals and concerns to be addressed.
Forma V is a non-invasive treatment that safely delivers heat to both internal and external tissues of the vagina to remodel vaginal laxity and treat labial hypertrophy. The heat is distributed by a handheld device that can be inserted and moved around the vaginal area. It uses non-ablative radiofrequency energy to gently and comfortably heat the vaginal tissues for a few minutes. Forma V helps tighten the vagina and improves blood circulation making intercourse pleasurable and comfortable, while also treating and improving urinary stress incontinence issues.
FractoraV is a non-invasive treatment that uses fractional resurfacing to address feminine issues on the exterior tissues of the vagina. A topical anesthetic is applied over the area of treatment, then the handpiece is lightly pressed on the skin to deliver radiofrequency contraction on the outer vaginal tissues. Micro pins create tiny punctures on the skin to deliver radiofrequency energy. The handpiece is moved up and down the treatment area. This stimulates collagen production tightening the vulvar tissue and improving the appearance of the skin with almost immediate results.
Votiva treatment lasts between 10 to 40 minutes, depending on the areas being addressed. Avoiding sexual intercourse 24 hours before and 72 hours after treatment is recommended. It is also essential to avoid bathtubs, hot tubs, and pools 3 days after treatment.
Do Votiva Treatments Hurt?
Votiva treatment is painless. You might feel minor discomfort when the wand is inserted into the vagina due to vaginal dryness. There is no downtime, and you can return to your activities following treatment.
When Will My Results Show, And How Long Do the Results Last?
Patients have reported immediate changes, but every person is different. Generally, results show between 2 to 3 weeks after the first treatment. The results continue improving the following weeks after treatment, and multiple treatments produce the best results. Vaginal tightness increases and the appearance of the labia improves due to increased collagen production. Results last up to 18 months, and annual follow-up exams help maintain the results.
