What is the Votiva Treatment?
Votiva is one of the most sought-after, progressive and unique forms of non-surgical procedures for vaginal rejuvenation. The technology is FDA-approved and has undergone rigorous clinical trials to ensure its safety and efficacy. This innovative therapy improves tissue tone and elasticity by employing radio frequency (RF) to stimulate collagen and elastin production within the vaginal area. Votiva significantly enhances both the aesthetic appearance (reduces wrinkling and improves moisture & lubrication) and functional aspects of the vagina region (better support for pelvic organs, improved sexual satisfaction and addresses health challenges such as urinary incontinence and vaginal dryness).
Votiva Procedure Types
There are two types of procedures commonly employed in the Votiva treatment (FormaV and FractoraV):
FormaV: this is a non-invasive procedure that uses a specialized probe/wand that emits radio frequency energy. This energy is applied within the vaginal canal to rejuvenate underlying tissues.
FractoraV: similar to Morpheus8, this is also minimally invasive and uses radio frequency energy for aesthetic enhancements. However, FractoraV targets rejuvenation of the external genitalia and employs a specialized probe that emits radio frequency energy to be applied externally, focusing on the labia majora and its underlying tissues. The Morpheus8 is also used for skin tightening and rejuvenation in various other areas of the body.
A combined procedure involving the FormaV and FactoraV can be used to address both internal discomfort and external appearance. Votiva offers a range of benefits, such as improved vaginal tightness and enhanced natural lubrication, and effectively addresses stress urinary incontinence issues.
For optimal results, periodic follow-up sessions are advised. We recommend scheduling a one-on-one consultation with our expert to understand the costs, procedures, and benefits of Votiva or other vaginal rejuvenation treatments at our clinic.

The Procedure for Votiva Vaginal Rejuvenation
Votiva is the go-to choice for many women who desire vaginal rejuvenation without surgical intervention. They have reported multiple benefits with the transformative power of this non-invasive procedure. Below is a step-by-step explanation of how this revolutionary treatment is performed at our state-of-the-art vaginal rejuvenation clinic in Michigan.
- The procedure begins with our vaginal rejuvenation expert Dr. Mona conducting an initial in-depth assessment of the patient’s medical history along with a thorough physical examination. During this personal consultation, the patient’s concerns, expectations, and desired outcomes are also discussed. You may also be given instructions like avoiding sexual intercourse days before the procedure.
- Following this, diagnostic tests like ultrasound, if required, may be conducted based on individual needs. The treatment plan is then customized, including the number of sessions required and any preparatory steps.
- Before starting the Votiva treatment, we ensure the patient has maintained good hygiene in the genital area, is currently not menstruating and is wearing comfortable, loose-fitting attire. Typically, no special fasting or medication is needed.
- During the procedure, the patient is placed in a dorsal lithotomy position, similar to a standard pelvic exam. The vaginal region is sterilized with an antiseptic solution, and the Votiva device, which utilizes controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy, is calibrated and prepared for use. Depending on the patient’s comfort level, a numbing cream may be applied to minimize any potential discomfort.
- For the internal treatment, a small, specialized probe is gently inserted into the vaginal canal. RF energy is emitted in a controlled manner to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The probe is moved in a systematic manner to ensure even treatment. If required, the external genitalia may also be treated using a different probe attachment.
- Throughout the procedure, real-time monitoring is conducted to ensure the patient’s comfort and the effectiveness of the treatment. The intensity of the radio frequency energy is also adjusted as needed. Finally, on completion, the device is safely removed, and the treated area is cleaned. The procedure is virtually painless, and patients can return to their daily activities immediately afterward.
Recovery & Aftercare After Votiva Vaginal Rejuvenation: What to Expect
Following a Votiva treatment, it is common to experience mild discomfort or swelling in the treated area. However, these symptoms are generally short-lived and typically subside within a few hours. While Votiva boasts a virtually non-existent downtime, patients are recommended to do the following.
- Adhere to post-treatment instructions provided by the healthcare provider;
- Maintain good hygiene;
- Stay well hydrated;
- Wear loose-fitting, breathable and comfortable clothing;
- Perform Kegels exercise;
- Engage in routine activities like light walking as this promotes circulation and blood flow to the area.
On the other hand, they are recommended not to:
- Engage in sexual activities for about 24-48 hours following the treatment;
- Use tampons for at least 5-7 days post-procedure;
- Use hot baths, hot tubs or saunas, as they can increase blood flow to the area and disrupt healing;
- Use harsh soaps/products or douche, as this can disrupt the natural balance of the vagina;
- Engage in strenuous activities like heavy lifting and intense exercise for a few days, as these may strain the treated area.
Besides these, patients can immediately return to their daily routines without any hindrance. This makes Votiva an exceptionally convenient option for those who can’t afford to take extended time off for recovery.
