We take care of the skin on our face and bodies to keep it looking healthy and youthful, but what about skin in other areas? We are talking specifically about an area you may not have even considered, your vagina. Vaginal rejuvenation has become a hot Hollywood topic, but what exactly is it, and why are women deciding to get the treatment? There are a multitude of ways women have quietly worked to keep up their feminine health, but we will be discussing a new one. Votiva for feminine rejuvenation, a new FDA approved procedure that is creating a buzz.
What does feminine rejuvenation solve?
As women age or experience child-birth, new feminine health issues may arise. Some women may be experiencing a relaxing of the vaginal tissue, dryness, sexual function, urinary incontinence, pain, or other discomforts. Some women may wish to address cosmetic issues involving skin color shifts and tightness of external tissue. Votiva feminine rejuvenation is a safe treatment device that can address these medical issues women face.
How does Votiva work?
Votiva uses radiofrequency heat, a minimally invasive procedure that helps restore vaginal health and wellness. Votiva does not only improve the outer areas on the vagina but also through the full canal. This procedure utilizes heat to make the collagen fibers contract. Application of heat will immediately tighten the treated skin. Long term, the body recognizes the treated area as and injury and will begin putting new collagen fibers in place that will strengthen and tighten the tissue.
Renewed tissue means improved pelvic floor strength and tone. Rejuvenated tissue can improve sexual satisfaction, sensations, vaginal skin tightness, and urinary incontinence. Urinary ailments are reversed when the vaginal wall is stronger and able to put more pressure on the urethra, which in turn helps solve incontinence. Intercourse can also become more comfortable with added elasticity and moisture from new collagen growth in the vaginal canal. Women who are opting to change the appearance of the labia and clitoris can choose to use Votiva instead of a surgical procedure.
What to expect during and after treatment
It is recommended that women receive three treatments for the best feminine rejuvenation results. Some report that they notice a difference after one treatment. Before your appointment, you will need to shave or wax, the skin must be free of hair. You also need to schedule during a time when you think you won’t have your menstrual cycle. During the procedure, you will feel light pressure and heat. The pressure comes from the probe as your doctor applies heat directly to the skin surface. The internal probe has heat conductors at the tip of the device. You will have options to choose your starting strength. For those wishing to start Votiva at the highest power recommended by their doctor, numbing creams can be applied. There is no aftercare required; it’s as easy as that! Some symptoms include swelling and itching after, but this does not happen to all patients.
