Votiva Vaginal Rejuvenation in Cincinnati, Ohio

Gentle and Effective Feminine Rejuvenation.

Votiva is the most advanced way to treat the following issues: leaky bladders, vaginal and vulvar laxity, and sexual dysfunction. In fact, Votiva is one of the only feminine health devices on the market with FDA 510 K clearance for Sexual Dysfunction and Stress Urinary Incontinence.

We use the Complete Votiva platform.

Votiva encompasses the FormaV, Morpheus8, and Aviva platforms. At Amy Brenner, MD & Associates, we are pleased to offer all three options of the Votive platform. There’s some confusion on the words that other practices call Votiva when they don’t own all the components of the Votive platform. They will refer to the noninvasive RF wand as Votiva – that’s what we do, too – but here’s the clarification: the FormaV is the name of the vaginal wand on the Votiva that uses non-invasive RF thermal heating to gently treat lax vaginal tissue, vulvar tissue, and labial hypertrophy. Other practices that only have the FormaV refer to this as Votiva. However, a TRUE Votiva has several options. Since most practices cannot have a full arsenal of tools, they call the FormaV the Votiva, so we will. For clients that have excess labia majora soft-tissue and/or excessive clitoral hooding, the Morpheus8 or Aviva can also be used. The Votive procedure (using the FormaV hand piece ) will now just be referred to as Votiva

Process & Results

Votiva

Step 1.

Consultation

Your Votiva Vaginal Rejuvenation provider will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goal and budget. We will answer all your questions and determine if Votiva Vaginal Rejuvenation is right for you. We will discuss the difference between this technology and other therapies such as the CORE Intima® , Mona Lisa Touch, O-Shot®, Viveve, Thermiva, Aviva and MySecret® Cosmetic Gynecologic surgeries . We will develop a customized plan specific to your needs.

Step 2.

Preparation

For Votiva Vaginal Rejuvenation in Cincinnati, no preparation is needed. Patients do not need numbing cream or pain medication for this comfortable, no downtime office procedure.

Step 3.

Customized Evaluation

Your medical provider will perform a speculum and pelvic exam to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure. Our practice is staffed by sexual medicine experts and have the most up-to-date, state-of -the-art equipment, devices and tools to customize your treatment plan. We are not a one-size-fits-all approach. Our staff will do a full evaluation to see if Votiva vaginal rejuvenation is the BEST fit for you, or if one of our other procedures or treatments is best for you, instead of or with, Votiva such as the CORE Intima®, O -Shot®, Aviva Morpheus8 or one of our MySecret® Cosmetic gynecological surgeries.

Step 4.

The Procedure

Votiva is painless! Patients have described the sensation as a warm sensation. Numbing cream and pain medications are NOT needed. During an internal vaginal Votiva ( FormaV) treatment, we deliver energy via a thin intra-vaginal device in pulses until we have treated all vaginal tissue. During an external Votiva vulva treatment, we deliver the energy via an external hand-piece in pulses until we have treated all vulvar tissues.

Step 5.

Post-Procedure Care

Patients can resume all normal activities after the Votiva ( FormaV) procedure. No restrictions are necessary.

Step 6.

Results

Our experience has shown that patients are thrilled with the results. Most women notice the effects after 1-2 sessions with full results 1 month after the third session. We usually suggest starting with 3 treatments over a 12-week time period with a “touch-up” yearly thereafter to maintain and protect your investment in your intimate health.

How does Votiva work?

Votiva vaginal rejuvenation uses an energy called radio frequency (RF) technology to gently heat the vaginal and vulvar tissue. This heat stimulates your body to make new collagen and elastin.  Over time, as new collagen and elastin is made, you can experience an increase in vulvar/vaginal tightness, vaginal lubrication, and increased sexual sensations, as well as less leakage from the bladder.

This is pain free with a treatment time of less than 25 minutes. Patients can see immediate results, and most see best results after 3 treatments.
