Votiva Q & A

What is Votiva?

Votiva is a vaginal rejuvenation treatment system that uses the power of radiofrequency (RF) energy to restore form and function to your vagina. As you age or following childbirth, your body goes through transitions that often lead to unpleasant physical changes. These changes may negatively affect your intimate life or lead to problems with urinary incontinence.

Votiva is a safe, comfortable way to address both internal and external vaginal health concerns without surgery, downtime, or hormones. It’s an in-office treatment that safely heats vaginal tissue for increased elasticity and sensitivity to improve vaginal function. Votiva treatments also help enhance the appearance of loose or scarred vaginal tissue.

What are the benefits of Votiva treatments?

Votiva provides several benefits for women experiencing vaginal laxity (looseness), painful intercourse, or vaginal dryness. It also helps improve incontinence problems. Votiva’s RF energy can also increase collagen and elastin production in vaginal tissue, which can help you produce natural lubrication and restore elasticity.

Other benefits of Votiva treatments include:

  • Increased sensitivity during sex
  • Painless, in-office procedure that takes just 30 minutes or less
  • Noticeable improvement after the first Votiva treatment
  • Continued improvement with a series of treatment
  • No downtime

Dr. Gonzalez customizes a Votiva treatment plan based on your individual needs so you get the results you desire.  

What can I expect with Votiva treatments?

Everyone is unique but most women notice a difference after their first Votiva treatment. If you experience urinary stress incontinence, for example, you may find that after the first treatment, you don’t lose urine when you laugh or sneeze. After two or three treatment sessions, you may be able to participate in physical exercises without the worry of bladder leakage.

Additionally, many women experience improved intimacy because they no longer have vaginal dryness or irritation during sex after their Votiva treatments. Votiva can also enhance the appearance of vaginal scar tissue after having babies.

If vaginal laxity, dryness, or incontinence are interfering with your quality of life, vaginal rejuvenation treatments with Votiva may be right for you. Find out more by calling to schedule a confidential consultation or use the online booking feature.
