Leakage & Laxity… Things of the Past – Reclaim Your Confidence with Feminine Rejuvenation

With all the changes you go through in life as a woman – puberty and periods, childbearing, birth, and menopause – your body endures a lot. It’s no wonder that many women are struggling with their confidence.  

As some of the many changes women commonly experience throughout their lives are those associated with feminine health. Vaginal atrophy, & urinary incontinence are two of the top feminine health concerns many women face. 

What is vaginal atrophy? 

Vaginal atrophy refers to thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls that may occur when your body has less estrogen. Vaginal atrophy occurs most often after menopause. For many women, vaginal atrophy not only makes intercourse painful but can also lead to distressing urinary symptoms.

What is urinary incontinence? 

Urinary incontinence — the loss of bladder control — is a common and often embarrassing problem. The severity ranges from occasionally leaking urine when you cough or sneeze to having an urge to urinate that’s so sudden and strong you don’t get to a toilet in time.

How does Votiva improve women’s health concerns? 

Much of your vaginal laxity is due to the absence of collagen and elastin, which are components of connective tissue and your skin. As you age, production of these two proteins decreases significantly.  

Along with it, the tight and firm skin on your face and body begins to sag and lose suppleness. The same thing happens in your vagina. If you’ve had a vaginal birth or two, the toll it takes on your vaginal structure only compounds the laxity issue. 

Using radiofrequency technology, Votiva gently heats the vaginal tissue via a specialized handpiece. It can be used both within the vaginal canal and on the labial tissue. This energy alerts your body to begin increasing collagen and elastin production, which builds and restores the treated tissues.

Votiva also works to restore strength and firmness to the pelvic floor, which helps you get control over stress urinary incontinence that frequently results from tissue laxity. 

Because Votiva improves and increases blood flow to the vagina, your vaginal lubrication will also improve.  

Do these treatments hurt? 

The Votiva rejuvenation procedure is quick and non-invasive, meaning you don’t need to worry about incisions, downtime, or pain. Most patients notice improvements after only one session with Votiva, but several sessions are typically recommended for optimal results.

Does vaginal atrophy & urinary incontinence affect a women’s quality of life? 

Well yes. The answer is obvious, but let’s hear what the researchers and specialists have to say about the reasons why. 

“Although incontinence is not a life-threatening disease, the loss of bladder control can affect social, psychological, familial, occupational, physical and sexual aspects on patients’ lives. Urinary incontinence leads to reduced quality of life, to cause social isolation and to restriction lifestyles”. — https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/

“Although both women and their healthcare providers are often reluctant to talk about it, vaginal atrophy (part of the genitourinary syndrome of menopause) affects quality of life, self-esteem, and the intimacy of relationships,” says Dr. JoAnn Pinkerton.

What are women’s health experts saying about treatments like Votiva? 

“The important take home messages are that women need treatments for conditions such as pain with intercourse, urinary leakage and infections, which can result in a poor quality of life. Approximately 50 percent of postmenopausal women suffer from these conditions, and this new generation of devices offers significant efficacy and excellent safety profiles.” – Dr. Alexiades 

“As a woman’s healthcare specialist, I think it is time for women’s intimate health issues to be in the spotlight. Women have struggled for years.” – Dr. Canter

What are patients saying? 

“Ok ladies, the idea may seem super intimidating but HOLY GAME CHANGER! I have no problem sharing that I have tried this treatment and let me tell you, for any of you who have had babies, or suffer from incontinence, I swear this is worth the investment!!” – S.M. 

“Best decision ever to get this treatment! Amazed by the results. I swear by it! No more fear of peeing when lifting weights or during spin class.” – J.F. 

“As someone who has personally tried this, I can truly say no longer needing to cross my legs every time I sneeze has been a game changer! I didn’t realize how badly I needed a little correcting. Plus, the added benefit of rejuvenation helped my body feel closer to my days before childbirth. BONUS! I feel so many women could benefit from this treatment!” – S.M.
