Votiva™ Vaginal Rejuvenation
Ladies, it’s’ time! Time to talk about something we seem to struggle with…feminine health and wellness. So, we are going to talk about “down there”, our “pleasure chest”, our “Lady Flower”, “Vajayjay” or whatever you feel comfortable naming your vagina.
Whether you “leak” a little when you sneeze, or vaginal dryness makes intercourse painful, you are not alone. These are common issues as we age. The passage of children can leave many women not feeling as “tight” during intercourse. During menopause, lubrication diminishes and vaginal atrophy sets in. Pelvic organ prolapse is another real concern. These are embarrassing and often painful issues… but we have great news, ladies!
Votiva™ by Inmode is a safe, non-surgical and non-invasive technology that can address vaginal, pelvic, sexual, urinary and cosmetic issues. This treatment has changed women’s lives by giving them their confidence and sexual satisfaction back.
How Does Votiva™ Work?
Votiva™ uses bipolar radiofrequency energy to reverse the signs of aging and remodel the tissues of the vagina and vulva (external genital area). Radiofrequency energy heats the connective tissue of the vaginal wall to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin. Increased blood circulation revitalizes and restores the strength, elasticity, sensation and lubrication of the vaginal mucosa.
Votiva™ has been approved by Health Canada for the treatment of the symptoms of Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause. In the US, Votiva is FDA cleared for an additional clearance of sexual dysfunction.
Does it Hurt?
No! The procedure is painless and there is minimal to no downtime.
The internal (vaginal) treatment consists of a thin “wand” being inserted into the vagina. You may feel a gentle warming sensation. No topical freezing is required. The treatment is tailored to your areas of concern. The entire treatment is 30 to 45 minutes.
The external treatment helps to shrink and remodel the external vaginal tissue for a more rejuvenated appearance and increase sensation. This treatment takes 10 minutes.
How Many Treatments are Required?
Studies have shown that optimal results are obtained from 3 treatments about 1 month apart.
Women usually notice changes in sensation, tightness and urinary incontinence within a week of treatment. Results improve and become more permanent in 8 to 12 weeks.
Unfortunately, Votiva™ does not stop the aging process. Therefore, it is recommended to have 1 maintenance treatment per year.
