Many women, especially after childbirth, experience urinary incontinence. It can strike at any age, and it can be embarrassing as well as limiting to a woman’s day to day life. Simple things such as sneezing, jumping, or laughing can all become stressful situations due to the possibility of having an “accident.”
Vaginal rejuvenation has been a bit of a buzz word in recent years with many celebrities touting the amazing effects of having treatments. While it does have many benefits including increased sensation, restoring a youthful appearance, and promoting elastin in the vaginal area, it can also be helpful for those women that are struggling with urinary incontinence.
How Does Votiva Work?
This non-invasive device is FDA approved, and it is designed to improve intimate health for women. The device uses a specific radio frequency that works to tighten the tissues in the applied area.
The process is very gentle, and it can be performed without the use of anesthetic. Votiva can address looseness, dryness, sexual dysfunction, as well as urinary incontinence. The device works on the external vaginal tissues by increasing the flow of blood which in turn promotes the production of collagen and elastin. The process generally takes at least three treatments which are spread out over a few weeks.
Results You Can Expect
For many women, Votiva is the best choice for vaginal rejuvenation because it is much less invasive than surgical procedures. It can help shape the internal and external vaginal tissues with very little pain or discomfort. Plus, the healing time is very quick. In fact, many women liken the process to having a pap smear at a yearly gynecological exam.
Since there is very little healing involved, the results are visible much more quickly. For some women, results are noticeable the very same day they have their first treatment. However, for other women, it takes at least two treatments to start feeling and seeing results.
Due to the regenerative effect of the procedure, women notice many positive changes to the vaginal area. There is often less crepe-like texture or wrinkling, and the vaginal area can become less loose. The strengthening of the tissues increases internal support which allows the body to better control the flow of urine decreasing struggles with incontinence. Some women also report a lessening or vaginal dryness which leads to better and more fulfilling sex life. There are also those that gain a boost in overall confidence.
Is Votiva Right for You?
Vaginal rejuvenation may be right for women of all ages. In fact, women have opted for Votiva treatments after undergoing menopause, after giving birth, and after dealing with various health issues like breast cancer or hysterectomies. There is no particular age that is appropriate for the treatments, and it is safe to have the treatments if you wish to have children in the future.
