What is Vaginal Rejuvenation? What is Votiva?
Shhh! Most women have feminine health concerns (down there!) but we don’t talk about it very often. Dryness from menopause, stress incontinence when running/jumping/laughing/ sneezing, and decreased muscle memory after child birth are some issues that women face as we have babies and grow older. The simple fact is that women have plenty of concerns about their vaginal health and appearance, but options for women to fix any of those issues without surgery were limited. The Votiva is a vaginal rejuvenation treatment that is helping thousands of women function better every day!
The Votiva by Inmode can address both interior and exterior feminine health concerns at one time. This is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes the newest technology to improve vaginal laxity and dryness, as well as stress incontinence. This treatment can also be used to boost sexual interest, something which begins to suffer with the onset of menopause.
The Votiva uses a small probe with radio frequency to stimulate the production of proteins deep within the sub-layers of skin to encourage the regrowth of vaginal mucosa. Radiofrequency technology is quickly becoming the gold standard in many cosmetic treatments, and with Votiva, that same technology can benefit your vaginal health. As a non-invasive treatment, many women enjoy the fact that they can get right back to their lives immediately after treatment: even their more intimate lives. This is a quick, painless treatment that will help you restore your confidence.
Who is the best candidate for Vaginal Rejuvenation with Votiva?
Votiva is for anyone who needs the following issues addressed:
- Corrects vaginal laxity and atrophy
- Restores vaginal strength and tone, such as in the Kegel muscles
- Increases vaginal sensitivity
- Reduces vaginal pain
- Improves the external appearance
- Improves vaginal dryness
- Reduces stress incontinence
- Improves sexual interest and pleasure
What is the recovery like with Votiva?
There is no recovery time needed after this radiofrequency treatment, although there may be some activity restrictions. Votiva® procedures are usually well-tolerated by patients, and they are typically performed without anesthesia (although Laughing gas is available if anxiety is an issue). Additionally, patients won’t need to take medications after the treatment in most cases. Patients usually experience little to no discomfort, and side effects are minor. Potential side effects include mild redness, tenderness, swelling, vaginal discharge, spotting, and cramping. Patients may be able to have sexual intercourse and engage in exercise on the same day that they have this procedure.
How long do the results from Votiva last?
Since the treatment promotes the production of collagen, the tightening of the internal tissues occurs gradually, and noticeable results may only be apparent within around one month. As opposed to surgical vaginal rejuvenation options, Votiva® is a more discrete procedure that won’t involve incisions or tissue scarring. The results are usually best after a series of three treatments. Patients will usually need to have maintenance treatments every four to 12 months. Future pregnancies and childbirth may alter the results.
