Address Internal and External Vaginal Issues With Votiva
Votiva is a groundbreaking form of non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation that can tighten loose skin, improve vaginal aesthetics, and enhance satisfaction during intercourse. The natural aging process, as well as childbirth, can alter vaginal tissues over time, leading to changes in appearance and functionality. Women may experience diminished sexual pleasure, dryness, urinary incontinence (loss of urine), and vaginal laxity over time. In the past, traditional vaginal surgery was the only solution to address these unwanted effects, but technological advancements have led to exciting and effective non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation options. Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC is proud to offer Votiva — a completely non-invasive vaginal tightening and rejuvenation treatment to address both internal and external vaginal health concerns using radio frequency (RF) technology.*

How does Votiva non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation work?
Votiva treatment combines 2 innovative radio frequency devices – FormaV™ and FractoraV™ — to tighten loose tissues and reinforce vaginal skin structure and elasticity. FormaV™ is the first device used during Votiva treatment. The FormaV™ device is carefully inserted into the vaginal canal and emits radio frequency energy. FormaV™ passes through the vaginal canal, delivering RF energy to the skin’s lower layers. Heat from the Votiva FormaV™ device achieves a tightening effect while also stimulating the production of collagen and elastin fibers. The FormaV™ device is then applied externally to the labia majora and surrounding areas to enhance skin structure.*
FractoraV™ is then utilized to further stimulate collagen and resurface skin. The FractoraV™ device is equipped with micro-pins that are placed on the skin’s surface. The skin is slightly stretched and RF energy is delivered to external vaginal tissues to achieve natural-looking tightening results.*
What areas can be treated with Votiva?
Votiva targets the vaginal canal, labia, and vulva to treat both internal and external tissues.
Who is a good candidate for Votiva non-surgical labiaplasty?
Patients who are experiencing functional issues, such as urinary stress incontinence, dryness, atrophy of the vaginal area, or loss of collagen and elastin, may be candidates for Votiva treatment. Additionally, Votiva may be an ideal solution for women who have experienced vaginal changes due to childbirth, as well as a reduction in estrogen during the natural aging process. Dr. Levine will meet with you during your consultation for Votiva at our NYC office to help determine if Votiva vaginal rejuvenation is right for you.
How many Votiva treatments will I need?
3 Votiva treatments are typically recommended for optimal results. However, the exact number of Votiva sessions will depend on the specifics of your procedure, as well as your treatment goals. Votiva can be customized to address a variety of patient concerns, from aesthetics to functional issues.
What type of anesthesia will be used?
Numbing cream is applied to the vaginal area in preparation for Votiva treatment. An ultrasound gel is then applied to the FormaV™ device to reduce discomfort during your vaginal rejuvenation procedure. Since Votiva is non-surgical, there is no need for general or local anesthesia.*
What should I expect during my Votiva procedure?
Votiva vaginal rejuvenation can be performed as an outpatient procedure at our New York City plastic surgery offices. Dr. Levine will first measure the vaginal canal to ensure precise and efficient treatment using FormaV™. Numbing cream is then applied to the treatment site, while ultrasound gel is applied to the FormaV™ device. The FormaV™ wand is inserted into the vaginal canal and is carefully rotated during treatment to ensure symmetrical results.* Once the vaginal canal is treated, FormaV™ is then applied to external vaginal tissues. During the final phase of treatment, the FractoraV™ device is applied to the areas surrounding the labia. The exact length of your Votiva treatment will ultimately depend on the specifics of your procedure.
What should I expect after my Votiva procedure?
Votiva patients can expect minimal downtime following radio frequency vaginal rejuvenation. You may experience minor discomfort or sensitivity within the initial days of recovery. Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately after completing Votiva treatment. Patients should wait approximately 1 week before having intercourse to allow for optimal healing.*
What kind of results can I expect from Votiva non-surgical labiaplasty?
Votiva can achieve long-lasting vaginal tightening results. Patients can typically begin to see skin tightening improvements in the hours following treatment with results continuing to be seen in the coming weeks, as additional collagen fibers are gradually stimulated and remodeled. Votiva can tighten vaginal tissues to restore more youthful contours, reduce dryness and urinary incontinence, and improve sexual satisfaction.*
