What Is Votiva?

Votiva is a safe and comfortable treatment that can provide non-surgical improvement to both external and internal vaginal health issues using cutting-edge technology. Votiva uses radiofrequency energy to address both internal and external symptoms. In addition, Votiva can also improve tightness, elasticity, appearance, and sexual enjoyment.

How is Votiva Performed?

Votiva is performed by using 2 different handpieces, known as the FormaV and FractoraV. The FormaV applies temperature-controlled radiofrequency energy to the internal and external vaginal areas, tightening the inner vaginal walls and labia. The FractoraV enhances the skin’s tone and texture with radiofrequency energy that stimulates collagen production, correcting signs of aging and improving laxity. 

The FormaV and FractoraV devices can be used separately or together in one treatment session, which will last 30-40 minutes. For optimal results, 2-3 treatments are recommended. 

How Long Does It Take to Recover from Votiva?

Each Votiva treatment has no significant recovery period. Patients may experience some sensitivity in the hours that follow, but patients can generally return to normal daily activities immediately.
