Votiva Forma V
Radiofrequency procedures for Feminine Wellness 

Internal and external treatment

Vaginal laxity and atrophy can occur through the natural aging process, by childbirth and as a result of some cancer treatments. The change in estrogen levels affects the lining and muscular integrity of the vaginal canal. Patients may experience these symptoms:

  • Loss of elasticity and wrinkled appearance of the labia and vulva
  • Decreased blood flow and sensitivity
  • Pain and itching from vaginal dryness
  • Low level of sexual interest and self-esteem
  • Weakening of the vaginal muscles 
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Stress urinary incontinence
  • Frequent yeast and bacterial vaginosis 

How Does Votiva Forma V Work?

Votiva Forma V is an in-office procedure designed to deliver comfortable, non-invasive radiofrequency energy to the vaginal wall and external labial tissues to create effective heating. This results in a tightening effect and restoration of natural lubrication. Designed for the vaginal canal as well as the external labia and vulva, the benefits are both functional (improved lubrication and urinary leakage) and cosmetic (treating laxity, wrinkling of the external skin and vulvar atrophy). One advantage of Votiva Forma V over our other external radiofrequency device (called EXILIS ULTRA FEMME 360) is the smaller vaginal handpiece size, which can be more comfortable for our patients with long-standing menopausal changes of tightness and atrophy.

Votiva Forma V is a comfortable device that provides uniform volumetric deep heating tissue treatment with real-time temperature control. Forma V does not require the healing time of a vaginal rejuvenation laser, but works similarly to restore vaginal lubrication, tone and tissue health to improve female sexual function, treat stress urinary incontinence and restore the correct pH in the vagina which will reduce the frequency of vaginal infections.

Patients feel a mild heating sensation during treatment. While results can be felt and seen immediately after your first treatment, most patients benefit from a series of 3 treatments. Depending on the intensity of your treatment, there is little to no downtime.

Most women report immediate changes after their first Votiva Forma V treatment. Even after your final session, you’ll continue to see increased benefits for several months. Since the aging process of your body will continue, we recommend a single yearly maintenance treatment to prolong your results.

Many women report immediate improvement in as little as one treatment. Every Votiva Forma V treatment regimen is personally tailored to your specific concerns and goals. For optimal results, most women will benefit from a series of 3 sessions, 4-6 weeks apart.

Depending on the areas being treated, the Votiva Forma V vaginal rejuvenation session may last 10-40 minutes.

There is no downtime with Votiva Forma V. 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.

Surgical labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure done under local anesthesia that can take between 45 minutes to 2 hours. The most common forms of vaginal rejuvenation surgery are labia minora reduction, labia majora reduction, clitoral hood reduction, labia majora augmentation and vaginal tightening or reconstruction.
