FormaV (formerly known as Votiva) gently uses radiofrequency heat internally on the vaginal tissue and externally on the labia to encourage new collagen and blood flow. After 3-6 gentle, pain-free treatments, vaginal membranes are firmer and restored. And patients report significant improvement in vaginal dryness.
FormaV rebuilds collagen and elastin
With aging and hormonal changes, collagen is lost in the vaginal area just like the thin skin around your eyes or on your neck or face. When collagen cushioning is lost, the vaginal membranes become thin and dry, leading to pain or bleeding with intercourse, a "sandy feeling" or irritated vagina and a change in the appearance of the labia.
With a FormaV treatment, we gently heat the external and internal vaginal tissue, instantly firming the area. Over the next few weeks, your body produces more collagen in the treatment area. After 3 sessions, most women report almost complete resolution of vaginal dryness and a return of firmer, healthier surface.
FormaV also improves mild stress incontinence and labial laxity. At Embrace Skin & Antiaging, FormaV is our go to hormone-free treatment for vaginal dryness. It's effective during peri-menopause, after menopause and even after breast cancer treatment.
FormaV is also used by many women as a treatment to maintain their vaginal appearance and function. A series of treatments improves vaginal moisture and reduces the appearance of prominent labia.
There is no pain and no downtime after FormaV (Votiva).
How FormaV / Votiva works
FormaV is a pain-free, in-office procedure and requires no prior preparation. With a single-use wand about the size of a small tampon, topical radiofrequency heat to the internal vaginal walls and external labia. This stimulates tissue remodeling and new collagen, allowing the skin to expand and contract comfortably, giving results you can both see and feel. You can leave immediately after treatment and resume all normal activities, including intimacy.
