As women age, our bodies experience all sorts of changes including to our most intimate areas. Vaginal laxity (loss of tightness), urinary incontinence, and lack of lubrication are common aging issues for women. Childbirth and menopause exacerbate these problems even further. Looking for a safe, effective alternative to surgery like labiaplasty? Introducing Votiva vaginal rejuvenation in Bradenton at Mahima Med Spa.
Votiva utilizes FDA-cleared radiofrequency energy technologies to tighten and remodel the internal and external vaginal tissues (vulva and labia). Best of all, vaginal rejuvenation treatments are safe, quick, gentle, and require no downtime.
VOTIVA VAGINAL REJUVENATION
Vaginal rejuvenation helps women of all ages by improving the appearance and function of their vaginal tissues inside and out. Votiva is a great choice for women who experience:
Stress urinary incontinence, which is urinary leakage caused by physical movement like sneezing, coughing, exercising or lifting something heavy
Vaginal dryness and lack of lubrication
Laxity (lack of tightness) of the vaginal canal
Reduced sensation during intercourse
Low blood flow, painful sensations or lowered sexual interest
Elasticity and wrinkled appearance of the labia and vulvovaginal area
Pain or discomfort from labial hypertrophy
How Does Votiva Vaginal Rejuvenation Work?
Votiva vaginal rejuvenation treatments utilize Radiofrequency (RF) technology to safely deliver sub-dermal heat to the internal vaginal tissue and the external vulvar tissue. The treatment is quick, comfortable and effective. Best of all, it offers women an alternative to the surgical risks and downtime of vaginoplasty and labiaplasty.
Votiva includes two unique vaginal rejuvenation treatments in one:
Gentle Internal & External Tissue Remodeling
Radiofrequency and heat energy have been used in medical procedures for years on the face, neck and other body parts. It turns out that it also works extremely well for internal and external vaginal rejuvenation. Mahima Med Spa’s medical team utilizes a disposable handheld wand (FormaV) to perform the treatment. Ultrasound gel is placed on the tip of the wand to help with gliding during the treatment.
It is gently inserted into the vaginal canal and warmed up to a temperature of 43° C. During the 10-minute treatment, the wand turned in half moon pattern to deliver a uniform and comfortable sub-dermal radiofrequency heat across the internal vaginal walls, external vulvar tissue, and labia.
Once the optimal temperatures are reached, your body recognizes the heat as an injury. It sends in natural healing forces to produce new collagen fibers. This new collagen restores elasticity and tightness, reduces dryness, and improves the overall appearance of the area for comprehensive vaginal renewal.
External: Improved Vaginal Tone & Appearance
Your Votiva treatment also includes an optional second procedure to improve the external appearance of the vagina. The bi-polar radio-frequency (RF) handheld Mopheus8 device allows for gentle, full-depth heating via microneedles to improve vaginal skin tone, wrinkling and texture. It tightens and resurfaces the external tissues by boosting collagen and improving elastin. Not only does it feel better, it’s also more aesthetically pleasing. It’s a confidence booster for women who suffer from asymmetrical or “floppy” labia who don’t want to undergo surgery.
Vaginal dryness and lack of lubrication
When Will I See Results & How Long Will They Last?
Most women report immediate changes after their first Votiva treatment. Even after your final session, you will continue to see increased benefits for several months after completing your Votiva vaginal rejuvenation sessions. Since the aging process of your body will continue, we recommend a single yearly maintenance treatment to prolong your results.
How Many Vaginal Rejuvenation Sessions Will I Need?
Many women report immediate improvement in as little as one treatment. Every Votiva treatment regimen is personally tailored to your specific concerns and goals. For optimal results, most women will benefit from a series of three sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
How Long Does a Votiva Session Take?
Depending on the areas being treated, the Votiva vaginal rejuvenation sessions last from 10-40 minutes.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is no downtime with Votiva. To maximize benefits, you should abstain from intercourse for 72 hours following treatment. We also recommend avoiding hot tubs, pools and bathtubs for 3 days following your treatment.
What Does It Feel Like? Does It Hurt?
Votiva vaginal rejuvenation is painless. You may experience mild discomfort as the handheld wand is inserted for the first time. Once inserted, you can expect to feel a mild internal heating sensation during your Votiva sessions.
I Pee When I Sneeze, Cough or Run. Will Votiva Vaginal Rejuvenation Help?
You’re experiencing an incredibly common condition known as stress urinary incontinence. Aging and childbirth changes the vaginal tone, which in turn impacts the function of the bladder. Votiva tightens the vaginal wall tissue which acts as a support to the urethra to help prevent leaks. Many women will see improvement in their incontinence in just 1-2 vaginal rejuvenation sessions, with optimal improvement after 3 Votiva sessions.
Am I Good Candidate for Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Because of the versatility of Votiva for treating a variety of conditions, women of every age can benefit from the power of Votiva. Childbirth and menopause exacerbate the most common issues vaginal rejuvenation addresses.
Many women experience a change in vaginal tone after giving birth, which can lead to urinary leakage and decreased sensation during intercourse. Vaginal childbirth can also alter the size and shape of the labia.
Vaginal dryness is a common symptom of peri-menopause and menopause. Votiva can help restore lubrication and improve tightness for women during this stage of life.

How Do I Prepare for Votiva Vaginal Rejuvenation Sessions?
Before your sessions, you will need to remove all hair from the treatment area. Avoid intercourse for 24 hours prior to treatment. Three days prior to treatment, you will need to stop the use of NSAIDs like ibuprofen, naproxen, or aspirin. Vaginal rejuvenation treatments should also be avoided during menstrual bleeding and just prior to your menstrual cycle. Our med spa team will help you schedule your Votiva sessions around your cycle.
