What is Feminine Wellness?
While many consider feminine wellness to be about improving the appearance of the vulvar area or tightening the vaginal canal, women are commonly affected by hormonal and physical changes associated with childbirth, peri-menopause, and menopause.
- Vaginal dryness
- Loss of sensitivity
- Painful Sexual Intercourse
- Stress Urinary Incontinence
SIGNIFICANTLY EFFECT THE QUALITY OF LIFE.
It is estimated that over one third of women in the United States suffer from one or more of these symptoms.
Available therapies have been Kegel exercises, hormone therapy, and sometimes even surgery.
Take charge of your health and wellness with Votiva,
Votiva is a non-invasive treatment that uses two complimentary radio frequency technologies to positively impact a women’s feminine health and quality of life.
The FormaV wand is designed to treat the vaginal canal as well as the labia minora, clitoris, and urethral opening using heat to comfortably stimulate collagen and elastin and tighten tissues. Increased vascularity in the walls of the vaginal canal results in less dryness and a tightening of lax tissues. It will also relieve some of the urinary urgency symptoms or stress incontinence associated with normal activity such as laughing or exercising.
The Fractora V wand is an optional external only treatment used to remodel, tighten, and refine the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
During a consultation, we will address your concerns, symptoms, medical history, and expectations in order to ensure that Votiva would be helpful and to develop a tailored treatment plan that can include either one, or both devices.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
The vagina and external areas are each treated for 10 minutes, so it is a very brief, comfortable experience.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?
In order to achieve optimal results, we recommend a series of 3 treatments. After the initial treatment, patients typically experience an improvement, but more substantial relief of symptoms occur after the second treatment which occurs two weeks later. The final treatment is 6 weeks after the first in order to take advantage of the collagen and elastin formation.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?
There is no downtime or restrictions in terms of day to day activities with Forma V. Fractora V fractional resurfacing (external therapy only) requires applying an antibiotic ointment and keeping the treated area clean and dry for 48 hours.
IS IT PAINFUL?
No. Both procedures are comfortable.
WHY CHOOSE VOTIVA FOR FEMININE WELLNESS?
Many patients experience an immediate improvement in symptoms that continue with time, and the procedure is comfortable with little to no constraints on your daily life.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR VOTIVA?
Votiva with FormaV is a therapeutic device for the treatment of sexual dysfunction or as an adjunct to Kegel exercises (tightening of the muscles of the pelvic floor to increase muscle tone). It can help relieve the symptoms caused by pelvic laxity. It is synergic with hormone therapy, but it may also be a helpful alternative for women who cannot or choose not to have hormonal therapy. It is not indicated for severe prolapse. A consultation is the best way to see if Votiva may be a helpful treatment for you.
WHAT MAKES VOTIVA TECHNOLOGY SAFE AND EFFECTIVE?
While other devices utilize laser or monopolar radiofrequency, Votiva provides the option
of two different therapies, the FormaV and FractoraV, each designed for specific concerns.
The advanced and unique bipolar design allows each wand to deliver
radiofrequency energy in a safe, uniform, and efficient manner. It is the only device that uses real time temperature display allowing the tissues to reach the necessary temperature to stimulate collagen and elastin formation. More importantly, this mechanism delivers the energy safely.
