Can Votiva Treat Stress Incontinence in Women?

Featured Image

Aging, giving birth, and menopause can affect the skin and tissue of the vagina, which causes it to lose elasticity. To treat this issue, board-certified physician Dr. Tricia Shimer offers Votiva vaginal restoration treatment to patients throughout Dallas, TX. Vaginal restoration uses radiofrequency and subdermal heat to treat the interior and exterior of the vagina. This helps resolve sexual dysfunction and stress incontinence symptoms, including vaginal dryness and painful sex. During a consultation, you can learn how vaginal restoration can help your vaginal health problems.

Issues treated with vaginal restoration

The best candidate for Votiva vaginal restoration is someone who wants a nonsurgical treatment that can address several different vaginal health issues. Some of the most common issues that can be treated with Votiva treatment include:

  1. An enlarged labia

  2. Painful sex

  3. Stress incontinence

  4. Vaginal dryness

  5. Weak vaginal muscles

Ultimately, Votiva treatment can give you dramatic and long-lasting results without a long recovery.

What is stress incontinence?

Stress incontinence occurs when physical activity, including heavy lifting, laughing, sneezing, or coughing, puts pressure on your bladder, which causes you to leak urine. This happens because the muscles or other tissues that support the urethra and the muscles that control urine release weaken. This usually is a result of childbirth.

How does Votiva vaginal restoration work?

Votiva uses radiofrequency heat to stimulate your natural collagen production. This radiofrequency heat helps you rebuild healthy tissue. It is great for patients who want to tighten and restore how their vagina both looks and feels.

Treatment can take about a half-hour and requires no anesthesia. An applicator is passed over the exterior of your vagina. It can also be inserted for vaginal tightening benefits. You may feel a slight warming feeling, but not pain. This is because there is a built-in thermometer that allows us to monitor the temperature during treatment.

During Votiva at our Dallas, TX, facility, we use two different technologies:

  • FormaV: This uses radiofrequency heat to remodel or tighten inner vaginal tissue.

  • FractoraV: This can resurface the skin and tissues of the vulva and labia.

What to expect after Votiva treatment

After Votiva treatment at Evolve Med Spa, you can almost immediately return to your daily life. Dr. Shimer asks you to refrain from sexual activity for at least 72 hours and from being in a bathtub, hot tub, or pool.

We understand that you want to maintain your results. Dr. Shimer recommends that her patients have three treatments done each month. Generally, your results will last up to 18 months. However, we do recommend semi-annual or annual follow-up treatments after the initial three-month time period after your first Votiva treatment in Dallas, TX.
