About Vaginal Rejuvenation
With the effects of aging, childbirth, and menopause, the skin and tissue of the internal and external vaginal areas can become slack, causing functional complications. Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation with Votiva uses a radiofrequency (RF) laser specifically designed by InMode to strengthen the inner vagina to address issues, such as vaginal dryness, stress incontinence, and some sexual dysfunctions. During a nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure, the body’s natural collagen production is stimulated by heating the exterior and interior of the vaginal tissue. It's a good scalpel-free option to help restore appearance and treat some medical conditions. To learn more about nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation with Votiva, arrange a consultation with Dr. George Kouris at Kouris M.D. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery in Hinsdale, IL.

You may be an ideal candidate for this procedure if you are looking to address certain vaginal difficulties or aesthetic concerns without having to undergo plastic surgery. Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation with Votiva can help to tighten your vaginal canal, improve urinary incontinence, allow for increased production of natural vaginal moisture and lubrication, minimize sex-related pain, and amplify sexual arousal and orgasm. It is also able to create dramatic results without a long recovery. Most patients can return to their daily activities immediately following treatment.
Laser vaginal rejuvenation is an in-office procedure that can take up to 30 minutes to complete. No anesthesia is generally needed for the treatment. To complete the procedure, the Votiva applicator will be maneuvered around the exterior labia and vulva. It may also be placed inside of your vagina as the controlled radiofrequency emission energizes the tissues and vaginal skin to promote the production of collagen, which strengthens the area. A built-in thermometer is included on the wand so that the temperature can be monitored and manipulated as necessary to prevent burns and damage.
What to Expect
There is no real downtime needed following this procedure. You may return to your normal, everyday activities after the treatment. For optimal results, Dr. Kouris recommends that you receive three treatments set one month apart. Most patients will see results after each session while some could take up to three months to fully form. These results can last up to around 18 months so yearly touch-ups and follow-up treatments are recommended to preserve them.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does Votiva laser vaginal rejuvenation work?
This is a minimally invasive procedure that uses cutting-edge radiofrequency energy to stimulate the cells of the vaginal canal at the cellular level. Patients and partners report an improvement in tautness and a decrease in laxity during intercourse, enhanced sensitivity to climax, and overall better sexual function.
Does laser vaginal rejuvenation treat loose skin?
While Votiva can help to treat laxity, women who have excessively loose skin, such as an oversized or stretched labia majora, may be better candidates for a surgical procedure, such as labiaplasty. This cosmetic surgery procedure removes the excess skin along the inner or outer labia for a more pleasing aesthetic appearance.
What does the procedure involve?
The treatment typically consists of two major components: the internal application of Votiva, which enhances blood flow to the vaginal canal and the stimulation and remodeling of cells of the vaginal canal and the external application of Votiva, which helps rejuvenate the cosmetic appearance of the external vaginal area, including the labia minora.
What is the recovery from laser vaginal rejuvenation like?
There is little to no downtime after each treatment. Each treatment is done in the privacy and comfort of our office and takes approximately 45 minutes to complete.
