The anatomy and physiology of female genitalia change due to various causes such as childbirth, aging and menopause, genetics or trauma. If the female genital region becomes loose and lax over time, this can cause medical and aesthetic concerns that can adversely affect female sexual health and quality of life. Symptoms include decreased sensation during coitus, loss of sexual gratification, stress urinary incontinence (SUI), pelvic organ prolapse and general dissatisfaction with the appearance of the area.
Vaginal rejuvenation is a general term used to describe a range of procedures intended to restore the optimal structure of the vagina and surrounding tissues. These procedures include topical and systemic treatments, surgical procedures and, recently, energy-based technologies.
Votiva the noninvasive energy-based procedures are often preferred by women who are reluctant to undergo surgery due to the risk, expense, and recovery period. RF is one of the more innovative approaches to treating vulvo-vaginal laxity and SUI. It has gained significant popularity in recent years due to its non-invasiveness, absence of adverse events, and rapid results.
The mechanism of action is based on elevating the temperature of the treated tissue to initiate biological changes. RF energy heats the connective tissue of the vaginal wall to 40 – 43°C, triggering micro inflammatory stimulation of fibroblasts to stimulate collagen contraction, neocollagenesis and neo elastogenesis to revitalize and restore the strength, elasticity and moisture of the vaginal mucosa.
