Votiva by InMode offers treatment of symptoms which affect the way you travel (urinary urgency), exercise (stress incontinence), have intercourse sex (pain due to dryness) or even laughing (stress incontinence). Women are commonly affected by hormonal changes associated with menopause. In addition, many women who have delivered a child vaginally have limits or changes in their lifestyle because of urinary stress incontinence or urgency symptoms.
There are two distinguishing facts that describe Votiva which sets it apart from all other devices used for vaginal revitalization. First and foremost is the fact that Votiva is the only FDA cleared device to treat urinary incontinence and symptoms such as vaginal dryness, loss of vaginal and vulvar sensitivity. Second is the use of bipolar radio-frequency. While other devices utilize laser or monopolar radio-frequency, Votiva uses two different wands- the FormaV and FractoraV, each designed for treatment of specific areas. The advanced and unique bipolar design allows each wand to deliver radio-frequency energy in a safe, uniform and efficient manner. It is the only device that uses real time temperature display allowing the tissues to reach the necessary temperature to stimulate collagen and elastin formation. More importantly, this mechanism delivers the energy safely.
The FormaV wand is designed to treat the vaginal canal as well as the labia minor, clitoris and urethral opening. Using heat to remodel the tissues, conditions such as labial hypertrophy (enlarged labia minora) can be treated. As the tissues are comfortably heated to a temperature required to stimulate the tissues to manufacture collagen and elastin, increased vascularity in the walls of the vaginal canal results in less dryness and a tightening of lax tissues. It will also relieve some of the urinary urgency symptoms or stress incontinence associated with normal activity such as laughing or exercising. The FractoraV wand is designed for bulk heating so is used primarily to remodel the labia majora.
In order to achieve optimal results, we recommend a series of three treatments. After the initial treatment, patients typically experience immediate changes but more substantial relief of symptoms occur after the second treatment. There is no downtime with this treatment.
