Votiva is a safe and highly-effective way to restore optimal vaginal health, treat sexual dysfunction, improve the appearance and function of your most intimate area and treat urinary incontinence.

Understanding how the vagina ages

The vagina changes considerably over time.

Your tissues lose youthful collagen and elastin. Your estrogen levels drop, resulting in dryness, irritation and diminished satisfaction. Your labia stretch after childbirth, causing discomfort and self-consciousness.

For many women, these changes ultimately detract from their quality of life. When this occurs, Votiva vaginal rejuvenation at the Paradise Valley Skin Klinic™ can help you feel like yourself again.

Vaginal rejuvenation What you need to know

Votiva is a comfortable, non-surgical treatment that is performed quickly and comfortable in office and is designed to rejuvenate the external and internal vaginal tissues.

When done correctly, it has the power to:

  • Dramatically improve vaginal skin laxity
  • Increase sensitivity
  • Improve blood flow
  • Improve intimate wrinkles
  • Treat urinary incontinence
  • Tightens weak vaginal muscles

How does Votiva work?

Votiva uses radiofrequency (RF) technology. This energy emits a gentle heat that remodels and tightens the entire vaginal area – inside and out. It is a simple yet powerful procedure that has helped many women improve their intimate form and function.

Are you a candidate?

Many of our clients can be considered candidates for Votiva.

In general, the procedure is best for women who:

  • Have given birth
  • Have gone through menopause
  • Are experiencing uncomfortable vaginal symptoms
  • Are unhappy with the appearance of their vagina
  • Looking to improve intimacy

What to expect during your treatment

When you arrive at the Paradise Valley Skin Klinic™ for your Votiva procedure, we will guide you to your private treatment room where we will review your concerns, perform an examination, and discuss your treatment plan with you. We will then apply a numbing cream to the area to ensure your comfort.

During treatment, we will use two different devices:

  • Forma V. The Forma V device administers RF energy to the internal and external tissues. It tightens the vaginal walls and the labia, resulting in softer, smoother skin and enhanced intimate function.
  • Fractora V. Fractora V is a resurfacing device. It enhances tone and texture, while heating the external vaginal tissues to stimulate collagen and elastin production, dramatically improving external vaginal laxity.

Depending on your needs and goals, we may use one or both of these devices during your procedure. The treatment is not painful, and at the very most you may feel a slight warming sensation similar to that of an ultrasound.

After treatment

Because Votiva is non-surgical, there is virtually no downtime associated with the procedure. As such, you will be free to return to work and your normal daily routine right away. However, you should avoid sexual intercourse for a few days.

In terms of results, you should notice an immediate improvement that continues to progress over the following weeks as collagen and elastin levels increase.
