We all know that women represent society’s epitome of strength, and for good reasons. Having a career, taking care of a household, and bringing children into the world are but a few examples of women’s daily task lists. However, as strong and resilient women are, they are not invincible, which is why their continuous efforts begin to leave a mark on their health.

Over time, factors such as childbirth, menopause, and the natural aging process cause issues in the vaginal area, prompting closer attention to vaginal health and wellness. Loose vaginal skin, vaginal dryness, and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) all play a crucial role in impeding women from enjoying superior levels of wellness and self-esteem. That’s right; vaginal issues affect women’s self-image, mainly because vaginal health talks are considered more taboo.

Treating Vaginal Health Issues in a Nonsurgical Way

In a study published in 2013, researchers intended to observe vaginal health in US postmenopausal women. The results were staggering; 48% of women experienced “vaginal discomforts,” out of which vaginal dryness (85%) and dyspareunia or painful intercourse (52%) came first. Thus, vaginal health issues occur more often than one might think. 

Here at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery, we are adamant about our mission to raise awareness on vaginal health issues and empower women around the country to bring their issues to light. Dr. William J. Vinyard, MD, FACS, our chief plastic surgeon, is proud to possess the knowledge and technologies to improve women’s vaginal health and confidence in a nonsurgical way. The secret lies in one of the VIPS’ most recent additions to the vaginal rejuvenation arsenal – Votiva (FORMA V)!

Nonsurgical Vaginal Rejuvenation at VIPS

Votiva (FORMA V) is today’s hot ticket on nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation. Bringing together the latest technological advancements and the benefits of non-ablative radiofrequency (RF) energy, the Votiva (FORMA V) device applies heat energy to the tissue inside of the vaginal canal, improving blood circulation, causing muscle relaxation, and stimulating collagen production for a tightening effect. In addition, Dr. Vinyard conducts the procedure most safely with the help of a built-in thermometer that prevents burn-related injuries.

After a quick 35-minute procedure that does not necessitate anesthesia, you will be able to return to your daily activities without any hindrance! Aside from mild discomfort, your experience will be both beneficial and pleasant, allowing you to enjoy renewed levels of confidence and self-esteem. Furthermore, after a few days, you will be ready to resume sexual intercourse and enjoy the benefits of the treatment. 

How Can Votiva (FORMA V) Help Improve Women’s Vaginal Health? 

Votiva (FORMA V) brings wonders to vaginal health in multiple, intertwined ways. Here at VIPS, we have identified four major conditions that the Votiva (FORMA V) device improves: Loose vaginal skin, vaginal dryness, stress urinary incontinence, and impaired sexual function. So let’s discuss how the Votiva (FORMA V) device improves every single one of them!

#1: Loose Vaginal Skin

Women’s journey through life naturally affects the appearance and structure of the vaginal area over time. As such, women have to deal with loose vaginal skin, which causes discomforts both physically and aesthetically and takes a toll on women’s confidence.

However, with the help of Votiva (FORMA V), the loose vaginal skin will enjoy a tightening effect, amounting to reduced vaginal dryness and stress urinary incontinence, and increased sexual pleasure!

#2: Vaginal Dryness

Especially for postmenopausal women, vaginal dryness is something of a daily nuisance. Following the natural aging process, the estrogen levels in the vagina drop considerably, amounting to a poorly lubricated vaginal canal. Because of vaginal dryness, the vagina becomes less thick, less elastic, and less healthy, a situation experienced by roughly 17% of women aged 18-50. Burning, itching, and vaginal dryness are typical symptoms of vaginal dryness.

Due to the increased vascularity to the tissue that is created with the Votiva (FORMA V) treatment, you will once again enjoy improved lubrication, the cornerstone of a healthy vaginal area, and pleasurable sexual intercourse!

#3: Stress Urinary Incontinence

Losing control of the bladder is a serious threat to one’s general well-being, and it happens more often than you think. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality discovered that about 25% to 45% of women experienced accidents at least once in the course of a year. Childbirth and the natural aging process affect the vaginal muscle tone, causing urine leakage when least expected (e.g., when sneezing, coughing, or jumping).

However, women do not have to live with mild to moderate stress urinary incontinence, and Votiva (FORMA V) is here to help. During the procedure, radiofrequency energy both tightens and strengthens the vaginal canal, providing enough support to the vaginal muscles to prevent future accidents. After only three sessions, your urine leakage issues will become a thing of the past!   

#4: Impaired Sexual Function

Both partners have to bring confidence in bed in order to enjoy sexual activities. However, if you are self-conscious about your physical and aesthetic vaginal issues, your sexual function will probably be impaired. Both loose vaginal skin and vaginal dryness are common culprits of impaired sexual function. 

Since Votiva (FORMA V) single-handedly treats these conditions, you may once again be able to perform sexually in an optimal manner and without the discomforting pain during intercourse. Furthermore, you and your partner may become closer than ever before with the help of the Votiva (FORMA V) treatment!
