Votiva in Knoxville
The vagina can be subject to a variety of changes over time, due to loss of collagen and elastin, drops in estrogen levels and the toll childbirth can take on the body. The vaginal lips, known as the labia, may stretch, sometimes to the point of extending outside of the body. The unsightly appearance of the aging labia may lead to acute self-consciousness for a woman when she wears tight clothing or during intimacy with her partner. At the same time, women may experience physical symptoms associated with these visible changes, including increased vaginal dryness and irritation and decreased sexual satisfaction. In some cases, the symptoms may become severe enough to impact a woman’s quality of life, keeping her from wearing certain types of clothing or participating in some activities. Fortunately, vaginal rejuvenation addresses both the appearance and the physical symptoms in a single, painless procedure. is a procedure for women’s health and wellness, combining gentle volumetric heating with fractional treatment.

How Does Votiva Work?
Votiva with FormaV is a therapeutic device for the treatment of sexual dysfunction or as an adjunct to Kegel exercises (tightening of the muscles of the pelvic floor to increase muscle tone).
The procedure utilizes radio frequency energy to deliver targeted heating to the tissue, constricting and tightening the tissue while stimulating the body to produce additional collagen and elastin. The comfortable treatment is performed right in our office on an outpatient basis without the need for anesthesia, incisions or recovery time afterward.
During your consultation we will speak to your regarding your concerns and expectations. At this time, we will develop a tailored treatment plan just for your needs.
What Can I Expect?
Patients can expect to feel a warm sensation during the treatment with little or no discomfort during and after the appointment. The heat emitted is not intense enough to cause pain and patients may even find the warming sensation to be somewhat pleasant. Overall, the treamtent is similar to undergoing your annual gynecology exam.
After treatment, patients may resume regular activities right away. You may be advised to avoid intercourse for a few days after the procedure, but restrictions on activities after Votiva are very minimal. you should not experience any discomfort that would interfere with your daily tasks and side effects from the procedure are very rare. The total procedure is only a few minutes, with little to no discomfort or downtime.
A single Votiva treatment can address a myriad of feminine concerns:
- Stretched, wrinkled labia that sometimes protrudes outside of the vaginal opening
- Diminished sensitivity that can affect sexual satisfaction and sex drive.
- Discomfort caused by laxity of the labia and vaginal walls
- Excessive dryness and irritation
- Low self-esteem due to changes in the appearance of the vagina.
How Many Sessions Are Required?
Some women notice an improvement in the vaginal area immediately following their very first treatment session. However, it is more common to see positive changes in the weeks following the procedure, as collagen and elastin levels increase, and tissue constricts naturally. A series of treatment sessions is usually recommended to achieve full results, which can be very long-lasting.
The number of sessions will depend on your specific treatment goals, which will be discussed at your initial consultation. Most of our patients have two to three sessions at four to six-week intervals; however, most patients experience significant results after their first treatment
