Votiva is the latest innovation for feminine health. Using radiofrequency technology, Votiva can achieve long-lasting vaginal tightening results, restoring the vagina and surrounding muscles to nearly the same tightness and tone you had in your youth or before pregnancies WITHOUT invasive surgery.

Are You a Votiva Candidate?
You may want to consider the nonsurgical Forma V procedure if your vagina and the surrounding muscles have altered and stretched due to aging, pregnancy, or weight loss.
With age and child birth, women can often experience some unwanted changes in their feminine health. Women may experience diminished sexual interest or pleasure due to dryness and decreased sensitivity, urinary incontinence (loss of urine), and vaginal laxity over time. In the past, traditional vaginal surgery was the only solution to address these unwanted effects, but technological advancements have led to exciting and effective non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation options that allow patients to avoid the surgical risks and downtime of vaginoplasty and labiaplasty.
What is Votiva?
Votiva is a groundbreaking form of non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation that can tighten loose skin, improve vaginal aesthetics, and enhance satisfaction during intercourse. Votiva is the first and only FDA approved device for vaginal rejuvenation and it is safe and effective for feminine concerns like:
- Stress urinary incontinence
- Weakened pelvic muscles
- Decreased sensitivity and low blood flow
- Vaginal dryness and pain during intercourse
- Wrinkled appearance and loss of elasticity of the vulva and labia
How Votiva works
Votiva uses up to two complimentary radiofrequency devices – FormaV and FractoraV — to tighten loose tissues and reinforce vaginal skin structure and elasticity. Radiofrequency technology is not new in cosmetic medicine. It has been used for years in many non-invasive facial and body procedures by emitting focused electromagnetic waves that generate heat upon the target tissue. Through uniform RF heating that Votiva offers, we can achieve the desired stimulation of elastin and collagen production and an increase in blood flow. When those three parameters are stimulated, the result is increased vaginal elasticity, elimination of urinary incontinence, tightening of the vaginal walls and improved appearance of the labia and vulva.
Is Votiva safe?
The Forma V is the only device that monitors the vaginal lining temperatures and cuts off the temperature and sustains the end point automatically during the treatment, preventing over-heating and burns, but also ensuring the best possible tightening .The sustained, gentle, non-painful heat results in remodeling of the vaginal mucosa and sub-mucosal tissues with increased tightening and mucosal secretions.
What to Expect
First, ultrasound gel is applied to the head of the FormaV wand and is heated to 35 C. Next, the wand is inserted into the vaginal canal to measure its length and ensure precise and efficient treatment. The wand is then passed over the internal tissues from proximal to distal and is carefully rotated during treatment to allow the heat to be evenly distributed and to ensure symmetrical results.
The treatment is painless and most women report a warm sensation during the process and compare the feeling to that of a hot stone massage. Some of them mention slight discomfort comparable to an annual gynecological exam when the probe is inserted into the vagina.
Each treatment session typically lasts 10-25 minutes, but the exact length of a Votiva treatment will ultimately depend on the specifics discussed during the consultation.
How much downtime?
There is little to no downtime and patients may resume their daily activities immediately after completing a Votiva treatment. However, it is advisable that patients wait approximately 1 week before having intercourse to allow for optimal healing.
The most reported side effects from some patients are that they may see slight redness in the treated area, which will subside within a few hours.
Votiva can achieve long-lasting vaginal tightening results. Patients can typically begin to see skin tightening improvements in the hours following treatment with results continuing to be seen in the coming weeks, as additional collagen fibers are gradually stimulated and remodeled.
