Sexual Dysfunction Q & A

What causes vaginal changes?

Far too many women endure vaginal changes silently, without sharing their experience with others or asking their health care providers for options. Vaginal changes are the result of the passage of time, as well as the toll that pregnancy and childbirth take on your delicate vaginal tissues. Even hormonal shifts affect how your vagina functions over time.

Some of the more common vaginal changes include:


  • Painful intercourse
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Loss of elasticity and tone in vaginal walls
  • Increased susceptibility to infection


For many women, these changes make it difficult to enjoy a healthy, fulfilling sex life.


What can be done to treat vaginal changes?

In decades past, there was little that could be done to address these common issues. Researchers didn’t focus on vaginal changes, and the general assumption was that the symptoms were just an unavoidable part of growing older.

Today we have options, one of which is a treatment platform called Votiva. This advanced technology uses radiofrequency energy to create heat. When applied to your vaginal walls, that heat prompts your natural healing response.

Your body begins to create new collagen and elastin, thickening your vaginal walls, improving circulation, and restoring proper vaginal moisture levels. Treatments have the power to effectively turn back the hands of time and improve vaginal function


Are Votiva treatments painful?  

If all this talk about heat and healing in such a delicate area of your body makes you nervous, you’re certainly not alone. It’s important to understand that the technology behind Votiva allows the platform to create carefully controlled heat that targets specific tissues, leaving surrounding tissues unaffected.

The platform also monitors the temperature of your skin and can make adjustments as needed to keep you comfortable. The micro-injuries that prompt your healing response are not painful and pose none of the risks associated with surgery.

There’s no need for anesthesia, no downtime, and no significant side effects. You can return to normal activities immediately after your appointment, although you should give your body a few days to heal before engaging in vaginal intercourse.


When will I see results from Votiva treatments?

You may experience some immediate improvements, but it takes a few weeks for your body’s healing process to wrap up. Most women choose a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal outcomes.
