Vaginal Rejuvenation‎ Q & A

What is vaginal rejuvenation?

Vaginal rejuvenation addresses changes in your vaginal tissue that can happen as a result of childbirth and aging. After delivering babies, vaginal tissue is looser than it once was and may be less sensitive during sex. Additionally, hormonal changes after pregnancy and during menopause leave your body with less collagen and elastin to keep vaginal tissue firm and naturally lubricated.

Dr. Gonzalez offers non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation to treat these issues and to improve symptoms of mild urinary incontinence. With state-of-the-art, in-office procedures like the Votiva feminine rejuvenation system, Dr. Gonzalez can improve your quality of life and help you feel more confident about the appearance and function of your vagina.

How does Votiva work to rejuvenate vaginal tissue?

Votiva is an innovative treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to deliver controlled heat to delicate vaginal tissue. The RF energy safely stimulates your body’s healing response in order to:

  • Tighten loose vaginal tissue
  • Increase natural lubrication
  • Improve sensitivity during sex
  • Decrease urinary incontinence problems

Votiva helps your body produce new collagen and elastin so vaginal tissue becomes tighter from within. It helps restore your body physically and makes you feel more confident in intimate situations.

What can I expect with vaginal rejuvenation treatments?

Dr. Gonzalez uses the innovative technology of Votiva for vaginal rejuvenation because of its effectiveness and comfort during treatment. RF energy is safe and painless, so you won’t need anesthesia during your treatment, which typically takes just 30 minutes or so. Typically, you won’t feel tenderness or unpleasant side effects after treatment, and you can resume your daily activities with minimal interruption.

You may notice visible results immediately, and you’ll experience continued rejuvenation in the following weeks as your body produces new collagen and elastin. A tighter appearance of your labia is usually noticeable immediately following a Votiva RF treatment. Urinary incontinence symptoms often decrease with each vaginal rejuvenation treatment, too.

Dr. Gonzalez creates a customized vaginal rejuvenation treatment plan to address your individual concerns — both physically and aesthetically.
