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:
Besides menopause, there are several other reasons why women lose estrogen or experience unwanted vaginal changes:
Dr. Cha diagnoses vaginal atrophy with a pelvic examination, medical history, and assessment of your symptoms.
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:
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.
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.
