As women age, the female body experiences many changes. Both the external and internal surfaces of the vaginal region undergo a loss of collagen and elastin which causes relaxation of the skin and muscles. Childbirth can also lead to internal and external vaginal laxity as well as scarring from lacerations. Changing hormone levels from menopause also affects the vaginal walls and surfaces. With the innovative, non-surgical, and non-hormonal treatment VOTIVA, you can improve the internal and external walls of the vagina.

VOTIVA Forma-V is a vaginal tightening device that gently heats the vaginal mucosa and external labial tissues for 30 minutes at a time. The Forma-V sends gentle, painless radio frequency waves through the walls of the vagina, creating new collagen and elastin as well as tightening and rejuvenating the labia minora. It is recommended to receive a series of three treatments once a month for three months in order to achieve the best results. After the initial three treatments it is suggested that the patient then undergoes maintenance treatments once every 9-12 months.
