Vaginal Rejuvenation Q & A
What is vaginal atrophy?
As women age and begin the transition into menopause, their estrogen levels start to decrease. Produced in the ovaries, the hormone estrogen helps to keep vaginal tissue healthy and lubricated. Low estrogen causes vaginal tissue to shrink and become dry and thin — signs of vaginal atrophy.
Vaginal atrophy symptoms include:
- Bleeding after intercourse
- Pain during intercourse
- Vaginal dryness, pain, or burning
Besides menopause, there are several other reasons why women lose estrogen or experience unwanted vaginal changes:
- Certain medications used to reduce estrogen
- Premature menopause occurring before age 40
- Removal of the ovaries and/or uterus before menopause
Dr. Cha diagnoses vaginal atrophy with a pelvic examination, medical history, and assessment of your symptoms.
What is Votiva vaginal rejuvenation?
Votiva by Inmode is a clinically proven state-of-the-art technology used to improve the health, feeling, and appearance of internal and external vaginal tissue. Votiva treatment is safe, painless, and only lasts a few moments.
Benefits of Votiva vaginal rejuvenation include:
- Increased blood flow
- Increased elasticity
- Increased sensitivity
- Reduced urinary incontinence
- Reduced wrinkles on the labia and vulva
It is a painless, medical treatment that can increase the amount of pleasurable friction and sensation during intercourse. It works at the cellular level to tighten the tissue at the vaginal opening from within, gently and gradually.
Geneveve treats the condition of vaginal laxity, which results from over stretching the vaginal introital (opening) tissue during childbirth. As a result of this tissue damage, women can experience a decrease in sexual satisfaction and physical sensation during intercourse, which may adversely impact their sexual health and quality of life.
Depending on your individual treatment goals, Dr. Cha moves one or two handheld devices (Forma V and Fractora V) over the inner and outer vaginal tissue. The devices use laser heat energy to resurface the skin and boost elastin and collagen. Vaginal rejuvenation with Votiva is fast and painless. Your entire session from prep to finish takes around 30 minutes.
What results can I expect from vaginal rejuvenation?
With Votiva treatment, many women experience increased vaginal tightness, reduced discomfort, and greater intimacy after just one treatment. Dr. Cha generally recommends at least two or three treatments for optimal results.
Improvement is noticeable shortly after treatment and continues to increase in the weeks after your session. To maintain your results, you can schedule a maintenance treatment every six months to a year. Votiva vaginal rejuvenation requires no downtime, so you can schedule treatment during your lunch hour and return to work without pain or discomfort.
As a woman, Dr. Cha understands the importance of vaginal health and function, especially as you age. There is nothing to be shy about; you can share your symptoms and concerns openly and honestly with your doctor.
Your Votiva vaginal rejuvenation consultation is the first step toward less discomfort and greater sexual pleasure. Call or click to schedule yours today.
Is my Vagina really aging and do I need Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Yes, like all body tissues. Aging in the vagina can lead to many problems for women that can disrupt their daily lives and their intimate relationships. Signs of aging can be dryness, bladder leakage, or stress urinary incontinence, vaginal atrophy, pain during intercourse, decreased climax, laxity or looseness from an overstretched vaginal wall, tears or a thinner wall in general.
