How is your vaginal health? We don’t talk about this very often... Women share similar feminine health concerns at all ages, concerns about vaginal health and appearance. Until recently, options were limited for women’s feminine wellness. At Luma MD in Sarasota, FL we are proud to offer Votiva. A revolutionary vaginal rejuvenation treatment that is helping thousands of women with painful intercourse, lubrication, urinary incontinence, chronic bladder issues, and vaginal laxity.
Health and wellness, especially as it concerns women of all ages, shapes and sizes, is such a priority for us here at Luma MD that we are proud to partner with Days for Girls, an incredible organization that prepares and distributes sustainable menstrual health solutions to girls who would otherwise miss school during their monthly periods.
We understand that virtually no woman goes through life unaffected by experiences such as pregnancy and childbirth, weight changes, hormones, and biological aging. Every one of these factors can contribute to changes in the vulvovaginal area, and these changes can have a profound impact on a woman’s general quality of life. Votiva is a therapeutic device that combines gentle volumetric heating with a fractional treatment promoting tissue remodeling. Following a series of treatments, the pelvic floor becomes stronger and firmer, this will help control urinary incontinence that frequently results from vaginal laxity. Because Votiva improves and increases blood flow to the vagina, your vaginal lubrication will also improve.
How it works
Votiva with FormaV provides non-invasive, gentle RF (Radio-frequency) heating for internal and external contraction. Temperature is regulated to safely deliver the radio frequency and applied for gentle thermal muscle stimulation, relaxation, and blood circulation.
Each treatment is 24- 30 minutes but can be adjusted depending on your needs. This is a very gentle treatment and there is no pain or discomfort. Votiva treatments are done with a therapeutic hand piece, delivering safe & effective heat.
There are a few instructions you will be asked to follow before your appointment. The pre-treatment guidelines are important to make sure that your treatment is successful and comfortable. Some guidelines will include:
Stopping the use of certain over-the-counter medications
Avoiding alcohol or high-sodium foods the night before treatment
Drinking plenty of water before treatment
Shaving or waxing the exterior of the vagina
Completing a current PAP smear
Making sure you do not have a yeast infection, bladder infection, or STD
Avoiding intercourse the night before treatment
What can I expect post-treatment?
Minimal vaginal discharge and light bleeding are possible. These side effects typically last 1-4 days. The bladder should be emptied immediately post-procedure. Avoid hot tubs as well as warm baths for at least 2 days after the treatment. After each treatment session, you will be advised to contact Luma MD if there are any indications of infection, swelling, redness, pain, or any other unusual symptoms.
How often should I have a Votiva treatment?
We recommend a series of 3 treatments for optimum results, allowing 4 weeks in between each treatment. Additionally, a complimentary fourth treatment three to four months later is recommended if you feel you need additional assistance.
There is also the option to combine Votiva with Morpheus microneedling around the labia which assists in exterior laxity.
If you would like to safely and effectively improve your feminine health, Votiva will be an excellent treatment option. Consultations are also available to learn more about how Luma MD can treat your specific needs.
