Votiva Q & A

What is Votiva?

The Votiva system uses painless radiofrequency energy delivered via a specially designed applicator device to revitalize external and internal vaginal tissues without surgery.

The warming effect of the treatment stimulates new collagen and elastin production that your body uses to rebuild healthy tissue.

The treatments also increase blood flow to the targeted areas and help improve overall sexual pleasure by restoring lost tone and sensitivity. Votiva can also improve elasticity, reduce wrinkles, and reverse other postmenopausal changes common to the labia and vulva.

What conditions does Votiva treat?

Votiva provides immediate and continued improvement over time for a wide variety of issues related to declining vaginal health, which may be due to the natural effects of aging or issues related to vaginal childbirth, cancer treatments, and other women’s health concerns.

The Urology Care team may recommend Votiva for:

  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Management of pelvic organ prolapse
  • Irritation and itching associated with dry vaginal tissue
  • Vaginal tissue changes related to menopause and declining estrogen levels
  • Side effects of cancer treatments leading to menopause-like symptoms

How can a vaginal treatment help with pelvic organ prolapse?

Prolapse occurs when pelvic floor muscles weaken and can’t properly support your pelvic organs. This may be due to a variety of underlying issues, including:

  • Muscle strain and other tissue trauma sustained during vaginal childbirth
  • Stress and strain related to abdominal obesity
  • Changes associated with aging and/or menopause

The revitalizing effects of the thermal energy that the Votiva applicator device produces help improve tissue health inside and outside the vagina, including the strength of your pelvic floor muscles.

This often eases the difficulties associated with pelvic organ prolapse, which may include urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, and discomfort during sexual intercourse.

Will I need more than one treatment?

Most women experience optimal results with three treatments over the course of three to four months. After that, you only need annual touch-up treatments.

How long does a Votiva treatment take?

The treatments are quick, taking about 15 minutes to treat the internal vaginal area and another 10 minutes for the external regions. You may notice some warmth during the session, but there is no pain associated with Votiva treatments, which are performed at the Urology Care office.
