Through the side effects of menopause, aging, and childbirth, the skin and tissue of the outer and inner vagina can become lax, causing functional or cosmetic issues. Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation with Votiva uses radiofrequency (RF) heat to carefully deliver energy to the inside of the vaginal wall. Votiva stimulates the growth of collagen, which in turn strengthens the vaginal skin's resilience and elasticity. It's an exciting, scalpel-free, rejuvenating option to help restore appearance and confidence and treat some medical concerns. To find out more about Votiva, schedule a consultation at Lubbock Plastic Surgery Institute in Lubbock, TX.

The Votiva procedure can be completed in our office in about 30 minutes. No anesthesia is generally needed for the treatment. During the procedure, a wand-shaped handpiece will be slowly and carefully inserted into your vagina as it emits controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy to the tissues and other internal structures to promote the production of collagen, which tightens the area. The wand contains a built-in thermometer so that the temperature can be monitored and manipulated as necessary to prevent burning or injury. Most patients compare the pain-free procedure to a pap smear and report very little discomfort.
What to Expect
The only downtime is no sexual activity for 24 hours.

Does vaginal rejuvenation work?
Vaginal rejuvenation can improve vaginal laxity. It may also help with overall sexual dysfunction due to dryness, looseness, and other issues. It may also help improve the aesthetic look and feel. More and more women are turning to this procedure because of its outstanding outcomes and minimal recovery downtime.
Does Votiva treat loose skin?
Female rejuvenation with Votiva is recommended for women who seek a higher degree of vaginal tightness within the vaginal walls. Events, such as childbirth, a massive weight loss, or even aging, can strain the internal muscles and create laxity, which can be improved with this treatment. Women who have loose skin, such as an oversized or stretched labia majora, may be better candidates for a surgical procedure, such as labiaplasty. This cosmetic surgery procedure removes the excess skin along the inner or outer labia for a more pleasing aesthetic appearance.
What is the recovery from vaginal rejuvenation like?
During your consultation, we will discuss with you how many sessions it will take to get the best results. There is no pain or downtime associated with Votiva. You should be able to resume your day as normal after the appointment. We do recommend refraining from using tampons or engaging in sexual intercourse for several days after the treatment to allow the treated area to properly heal.
