*According to 2022 Real Self data
Say hello to a simple, no down-time treatment that has helped thousands of women experience less peezing and more pleasure. Giving birth, getting older and losing a lot of weight can all contribute to poorly supported vaginal structures, characterized by sagging, laxity, and discomfort. Both childbirth and aging, can result in the widening of the vaginal canal which contributes to decreased sensation and stimulation during sex as well as hypersensitivity, dryness, and pain. Stress incontinence or not being able to have full bladder control also pops up in response to child birth and aging. Before Votiva, there were not many good options to address these problems – surgery, physical therapy, inconvenient creams, wearing pads. You deserve to feel confident and healthy with a quick, effective therapy.

What does it feel like?
It feels like a warm stone massage in the best of ways. During the session, your practitioner applies a small wand internally and externally to the treatment area that delivers safe, comfortable heat in the form of radiofrequency energy. Patients report feeling a warming sensation and a little pressure that is very tolerable.
How does it work?
Votiva uses gentle, controlled heating of tissue via radiofrequency energy to reduce pain, improve blood flow to the area, initiate the growth of healthy new nerves, and stimulate the muscle. It increases collagen in the vaginal canal that tightens it, strengthens the pelvic floor, improves bladder control and increases natural lubrication. The actual treatment takes about 20-30 minutes. Improved comfort and sensitivity combined with a return to the tightness of younger anatomy are appealing results for most women… and their partners, too!
Does Votiva work right away, or gradually?
The answer is BOTH!
Blood flow to the area increases beginning with the first treatment, which often improves the color of the vulvar tissue and firmness of the labia. Many patients report enhanced internal tightness and increased moisture after the first treatment. Some report better bladder control soon after the initial treatment as well.
But vaginal rejuvenation is also a long-term process involving collagen remodeling and further pelvic floor tightening which continues for weeks after the final treatment! Those final results last for about 12 months and can be maintained over a span of years with just a single, once-a-year treatment.
How many sessions are required?
We will determine the best course of therapy for you based on your individual concerns. The majority of patients have 3 sessions spaced 2 weeks apart with a positive improvement being noted just after the first treatment.
How will I feel after? Any downtime?
There is no downtime short of abstaining from sexual activity 2 days following treatment. Most patients may have slight discomfort during and immediately after treatment. Some patients will experience no discomfort at all and report it a pleasant and relaxing experience.
Quality results will be experienced immediately after treatment and increase between 2-3 weeks after the first treatment. There will be an improvement in vaginal tightening, sensation, bladder control and the external tissues will be restored. In the past, there was only one option and that was vaginal surgery. Today with Votiva, women can experience this rejuvenation through a treatment that only lasts for 20-30 minutes.
I may want to have more children, can I still have Votiva treatments?
Votiva is for women of all ages and stages of life. We have women in their 20’s to 70’s who all benefit from Votiva in different ways based on their personal concerns. Women who have never been pregnant or who have had multiple children can all be candidates for Votiva.

- Hair should be shaved in area 2-4 days prior to procedure
- You should not be actively menstruating
- Avoid anticoagulants such as Aspirin or Ibuprofen 1-2 weeks prior to treatment

Does insurance cover this treatment?
If you’re interested in undergoing non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation you may be wondering if the procedure costs can be covered by your health insurance policy. After all, the treatment is designed to help minimize some chronic feminine concerns (including infections and discomfort during sex), plus it can even help with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) symptoms.
Unfortunately, most insurance companies won’t cover the cost of non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation, even if you’re seeking it out to relieve a health issue.
However, you may find that your FSA or HSA can be utilized for treatment. We recommend contacting your account provider for more information or simply plan to pay out of pocket.
