Whether you’ve just had a baby or are experiencing menopause, all women know the issues that come along with either of those scenarios. Dr. Lisa M. Jukes, OB-GYN gynecologist joined us in the studio to share information about Votiva Treatment For “Feminine Revitalization.” Votiva is a device designed to treat the issues many women experience after having children or with menopause.
Dr. Lisa Jukes addressed urinary issues, lack of control when exercising or sometimes even laughing, lack of sensation during intimate relationships and pelvic pain. These issues affect many women from ages 35-55. Until recently, women did not have many options to improve intimate issues that occur from childbirth or aging. Now, the Votiva treatment offers a new technology for these women. Votiva treatments are effective, easy and painless. The treatments can address internal and external feminine health concerns, with clinically proven wellness technologies.
Common feminine health concerns include:
- Laxity of the labia and vulva
- Low blood flow and sensitivity
- Painful sensation caused by labial hypertrophy
- Level of sexual interest and self-esteem
- Weakening of the vaginal muscles
- Stress urinary incontinence
Votiva uses up to two complementary technologies to address a patient’s health and wellness concerns. During a treatment, a small wand is applied to the problem area and delivers safe and effective heat generated by controlled radio frequency. Votiva with the FormaV handpiece, gently and uniformly heats the treated tissue, reducing pain and tightening the pelvic floor muscles. Votiva with the FractoraV handpiece is a fractional treatment that remodels tissue. The majority of patients have 2-3 sessions, however, most notice a difference after only 1 treatment. Votiva is an FDA cleared device for temporary improvements in blood circulation, muscle pain relief, and muscle relaxation and is an adjunct to Kegel exercises (tightening of the muscles of the pelvic floor to increase muscle tone).
The Votiva treatment is appropriate for any female who has given birth, gone through menopause, as well as those who are experiencing post-menopausal symptoms as a result of a hysterectomy or breast cancer treatments. The radio frequency energy itself is painless. Some patients report mild discomfort during the first procedure due to vaginal dryness. The procedure will seem similar to your annual exam, and will likely be even quicker. Your healthcare provider will insert the device tip and deliver radio frequency energy “pulses.” The total procedure time is less than 30 minutes. Many patients have reported that they experience results right away. Virtually all patients have experienced results by the second treatment.
