What is Votiva?
Votiva is an advanced nonsurgical treatment the team at Orange Coast OBGYN uses to improve vaginal health. Votiva uses radiofrequency energy to induce collagen tightening and increase collagen production in your vaginal tissue. Collagen is the protein in your vaginal tissue that provides both strength and elasticity.
The radiofrequency energy also increases blood flow to your tissue to improve moisture and overall health.
What is vaginal tightening?
Vaginal tightening refers to an aesthetic procedure that improves vaginal health by inducing the collagen cells in your vaginal tissue to compress, or tighten. Childbearing, hormone changes, and aging all affect the health of your vaginal tissue, which can lead to a variety of symptoms ranging from loose tissue to vaginal dryness.
These symptoms can impact your everyday life. The women’s health team at Orange Coast OBGYN want to restore your vaginal health and improve your quality of life by offering you vaginal tightening with Votiva.
Am I a good candidate for vaginal tightening?
Dr. Conner and Dr. Moore determine if you’re a good candidate for vaginal tightening after a consultation that includes a physical and pelvic exam along with a review of your symptoms and health goals. You are a good candidate for vaginal tightening if you experience:
- Vaginal laxity
- Vaginal dryness
- Pain during intercourse
- Urinary incontinence
- Decrease in erotic sensation
The team offers vaginal tightening as an option for women of all ages and needs, whether your symptoms developed after you had your baby or from the hormonal changes caused by menopause.
What can I expect from vaginal tightening treatments?
Vaginal tightening with Votiva at Orange Coast OBGYN is a painless procedure. During treatment, your specialist inserts the radiofrequency wand in your vagina and activates the heating mechanism to stimulate the tightening of the tissue and production of collagen.
You should notice an improvement in vaginal health soon after treatment, but your tissue continues to make improvements over the next several weeks as new collagen cells replace old cells.
You may need more than one treatment to get the most benefits. Your specialist at Orange Coast OBGYN provides you with a treatment plan before you get started so you know what to expect.
