We don’t talk about it very often, but many women share the same feminine health concerns.
How do I know if I am a good candidate for Votiva?
Symptoms like vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence, loss of vaginal tone and pain with intercourse are all
common concerns that can be addressed with Votiva, and women of every age can benefit.
After childbirth many women experience a change in vaginal tone which can lead to stress incontinence
and decreased sensation during intercourse; there can also be an alteration in the shape and size of the labia.
Similarly, with menopause there are changes that can occur to the vaginal tissue; vaginal dryness is a primary
concern for many peri-menopausal and post-menopausal women.
Votiva is extremely versatile in treating a variety of conditions and is valuable for women in every stage of life.
Our skilled female clinicians will meet with you prior to treatment and discuss your specific concerns to create a personalized treatment plan that you feel great about.
This is a quick, painless treatment that will help you restore your confidence. Vaginal tone is affected by
childbirth and aging, and this change in tone can alter the function of the bladder. Stress urinary incontinence is incredibly common. Votiva works to regenerate this tissue and strengthen the existing structures offering
Benefits of the treatment:
– Increases vaginal sensitivity
– Tightening of the vaginal vault: Restores vaginal strength and tone, such as in the Kegel muscles
– Increased lubrication: Improves vaginal dryness atrophy
– Reduces stress urinary incontinence
– Reduces vaginal pain
– Improves the external appearance: improvement of labial laxity
– Improves sexual interest and pleasure
How can non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation improve my sexual experience and overall health?
When you feel confident about yourself, it affects every aspect of your health. Intercourse can be painful when
the vaginal tissue is dry. With three simple non-surgical treatments you can see a dramatic improvement in the
appearance of your vulvovaginal area, and functional issues like dryness and laxity can be improved.
I have had issues with vaginal dryness for years, can Votiva help with this?
Yes! Votiva specifically targets the tissue responsible for creating lubrication in the vaginal area.
When will I see the results of my Votiva treatments, and how long will the results last?
Patients report immediate changes; even after one 15-minute treatment session, you can experience the benefits of Votiva. Most women benefit from three sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Your results are best maintained with yearly or semi-annual maintenance treatments.
Are the treatments painful? What do I need to do to prepare for the treatments?
Good news- Votiva is painless! You can expect to feel a warming sensation during each Votiva session. Women should not be on their menstrual cycle and hair will need to be removed from the treatment area.
How long does the treatment take? Is there any downtime associated with being treated?
Depending on the areas being treated, the sessions last 30 minutes. There is very little downtime associated with Votiva. We will ask you to abstain from intercourse for 72 hours and avoid hot tubs, pools, and bathtubs for 3 days following your treatment.
I may want to have more children, can I still have Votiva treatments?
Votiva is for women of all ages and stages of life. Women who have never been pregnant or who have had
multiple children can all be candidates for Votiva. Our team is excited to meet with you and discuss your goals,
and we will create a unique treatment regimen for your specific concerns and lifestyle!
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Most patients need 3 to 5 consecutive treatment sessions to achieve the desired results. The amount of treatment sessions you need will depend on your exact needs and the degree of your feminine health concerns. For example, if your concerns include mild external laxity, then you may only need 1 or 2 sessions. If you have
concerns about internal laxity or atrophy, you may need 3 or 4 sessions. We will help you determine how many
sessions you will need to achieve your desired results.
Is Votiva Safe?
This treatment is approved by the FDA for vaginal rejuvenation, which includes treating stress urinary
incontinence, vaginal laxity, and decreased sexual sensitivity. Treatments cleared by the FDA undergo rigorous
clinical trials and testing to determine the efficacy of the treatments. This treatment is unique in that it is a safe
alternative to surgical vaginal rejuvenation techniques, such as labiaplasty. Our staff will be glad to go over any
health and safety questions you may have.
What Causes Vaginal Health Concerns?
There can be many underlying causes for your vaginal health concerns. The two main causes for changes in
vaginal health are hormonal fluctuations and childbirth. Hormonal changes associated with aging often lead to
physical side effects, such as a thinning of vaginal tissue, vaginal dryness, and a decrease in sexual activity.
Childbirth can also affect vaginal health, as the tissues and muscles of the vagina stretch during childbirth,
which can also cause a loss of sensation and a dropping of the pelvic wall. These causes for vaginal health
concerns are common to women at any point in life.
