6 Benefits of Votiva®

6 Benefits of Votiva®

Your vagina has been good to you. It’s facilitated a healthy sex life, delivered a baby or two (or more), and held countless tampons in place over the years. But these days, it’s feeling a bit loose, sometimes a little painful, and it just doesn’t look the same as it used to.

Like the rest of your body, your vagina has fallen victim to the effects of aging — vaginal atrophy. But you don’t have to live this way. At Gago Wellness in Brighton, Michigan, our team of master aestheticians has a highly effective, nonsurgical solution that will have you feeling like your old self (or young self) again soon — Votiva® by InMode. Here’s what you can expect.

What makes things go south down there?

As you age, your body naturally slows down. If you’re at or near menopause, you’ve already experienced what happens when your production of estrogen decreases, but that’s not the only change. Your skin cells renew at a much slower rate, and you produce less collagen, a protein essential for the structure and strength of your skin. Muscle tissue, too, weakens and loses density.

This transformation happens all over your body, including in and around your vagina. 

How to restore your vaginal health

Votiva effectively reverses these changes by shoring up the tissues inside and outside your vagina. The treatment is completely safe and comfortable, and we administer it right here in our office.

We insert a slender probe gently into your vagina and around the external tissues. The device emits radiofrequency energy that penetrates the aging tissues and stimulates your body’s natural healing mechanisms. In response, your skin begins to increase its production of collagen and elastin, another protein that allows your skin to stretch and contract back to its original form. All you feel during the process is a warming sensation.

The perks of vaginal restoration with Votiva

For some women, vaginal aging causes only mild effects that don’t compromise their quality of life. But for many others, the problems are embarrassing, disruptive, and painful. 

Votiva uses two technologies to restore your vaginal health: FormaV® addresses blood flow, dryness, pain, and incontinence; FractoraV® tightens wrinkled, lax skin. Here are the top six effects of vaginal aging Votiva can fix.

1. Labial laxity and wrinkles

You may not get a good look down there very often, but your partner probably does. And if your labial skin is shriveled and sagging, you may be embarrassed to engage in intimacy.

2. Pain

If aging causes your labia (external vaginal lips) to become enlarged, a condition called labial hypertrophy, you might find it painful to sit for long periods, ride a bike or a horse, wear tight clothing, or have sex. 

3. Lackluster sex drive

The look and feel of your vagina is critical to an enjoyable sexual experience. Changes to the tissues can decrease vaginal discharge, making the environment dry and inhospitable. As a result, you may find your libido has tanked.

4. Lax vaginal muscles

Some women describe their aging vagina as “loosey-goosey,” which is an apt way to illustrate the effect of weakening vaginal muscles. Sexual intercourse isn’t as pleasurable for you or your partner. 

5. Mild urinary incontinence

Leaking a little urine is one of the telltale signs of aging pelvic floor muscles, but it may also point to other conditions, so it’s important to get an accurate diagnosis. If it’s age-related tissue degeneration, Votiva can tighten you up and give you a stronger grip.

6. Decreased sensitivity

Sensitivity is everything when it comes to sexual pleasure, but aging slows the blood flow to your genitalia and decreases your ability to feel pleasure down there. 

Votiva results

No two women, and no two vaginas, are the same, so knowing exactly what to expect from Votiva varies from person to person. We can tell you that most women notice an immediate change — they feel slightly tighter inside and out. 

But the real changes happen gradually over the next few weeks and months as the collagen and elastin kick in and shore up your skin. 

It may take up to three sessions to achieve your goals, but many get what they’re looking for after only one. 

If you’re curious about what Votiva can do for you, we encourage you to come in for a consultation. Book an appointment online today, or call our friendly staff at 810-315-6863, and feel like yourself again soon.
