Votiva Vaginal Rejuvenation
At our Naples-Fort Myers, FL, practice, rarely does a treatment option generate as much excitement as Votiva. While similar to ThermiVa®, this nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment involves faster treatment times and has received higher patient ratings on sites such as RealSelf.com, as well as in our office. Votiva addresses both cosmetic and functional concerns you may have, which can positively affect your romantic relationships and give you back the confidence you deserve. Many women seek treatment after having children, but Votiva treats a range of issues for women of all ages.
Who Is a Good Votiva Candidate?
It can be uncomfortable to talk about the symptoms that affect the labia and vagina. Here’s something that’s important to remember: Many women experience these issues, and by seeking treatment, they’re able to once again enjoy their sexuality and feel confident.
In Votiva consultations, which are performed by our board-certified physician assistant Brandie Gostigan, patients commonly describe a few symptoms:
- “Looseness” or laxity in the vaginal tissue, especially following childbirth or menopause
- Vaginal dryness, even during sex
- Lax, wrinkled outer labia
- Reduced blood flow and sensitivity
- Trouble enjoying sexual intercourse
- “Leaking” or urinary incontinence
Votiva treatments can restore a healthy sense of wellbeing without surgery or downtime. Many women thinking about Votiva combine the treatment with surgical procedures, such as a tummy tuck and breast augmentation, as part of a Mommy Makeover. Brandie can work with you to customize a treatment plan.
Other Feminine Rejuvenation Options
In some cases, a patient may be a better candidate for a surgical feminine rejuvenation procedure than Votiva. Brandie will discuss possible options with you during your consultation and refer you to Dr. Hasen if you are interested.
- Labiaplasty reshapes the inner labia (minora), outer labia (majora), or both sets of labia. This procedure improves physical and emotional comfort by removing excess skin and tissue that may hang and get pulled.
- Liposuction and fat grafting can be used to restore fullness to the labia majora with injections of the patient’s own fat. Liposuction may also be used to reduce excessive fullness of the labia majora or the mons pubis.
*Your results may vary.
How Much Does Votiva Cost?
The price for Votiva treatments at our Naples practice varies between patients. For details, we encourage you to fill out the Pricing Guide form on this page and select ThermiVa. While price is a necessary consideration, for optimal results and safety, it’s important to choose an appropriately trained and experienced provider who offers both surgical and nonsurgical options.
The Votiva Procedure
Votiva treatments gently heat tissue using radiofrequency (RF) energy— the same technology that’s found in BodyTite and FaceTite nonsurgical skin tightening treatments. Depending on your concerns, your Votiva treatment plan may involve the Forma V applicator wand, Morpheus8 applicator, or both, used as follows:
Forma V uses RF energy to rejuvenate lax tissue and promote collagen production. When inserted into the vagina, Forma V treats the entire inner canal, not just the opening like other treatments. It may also be applied to the inner and outer labia, and the clitoral hood (skin around the clitoris). See the anatomy illustration on our Vaginal Rejuvenation page.
Morpheus8 emits fractional RF energy through tiny pins to rejuvenate the external labia only. Untreated tissue between the pins accelerates the healing process.
This safe and comfortable procedure tightens tissues of the vagina and vulva, and restores sensation — with no anesthesia, no incisions, and no needles. You can drive yourself home after your procedure and immediately return to your normal activities. You may have sexual intercourse 3 days after your Votiva treatment.
While patients may experience some immediate firming, lasting improvements develop gradually as collagen production and blood flow increase in treated areas. For optimal results, we recommend a series of 3 treatments, spaced approximately 1 month apart. A touch-up treatment once a year can help maintain your results.

I did a Votiva treatment for vaginal tightening, dryness, and bladder incontinence. To my surprise, I noticed after the first treatment the results were lift-changing. No more wetting myself when I laugh, cough, or sneeze. And my sex life is awesome! – Broadmoorb
Really easy procedure and helped with my leakage too! – jerseymom1978
Great experience with Votiva! – alexbejer
I had the first laser treatment 3 days ago, I could immediately tell a difference in the bladder issue and as for sex…let’s just say I’d love to meet the person that came up with this and give him a big hug and kiss! – aroberts1970
At 51 the big “O” is back again!! I can say the Votiva procedure has been a GAME CHANGER in my sex life!! I initially thought this procedure would be more for my husband; HOWEVER, it has been 100% a procedure for ME!! Sex is very similar to my 20’s and now I chase my husband around the house!! It’s great having a 51-year-old mind/confidence with a 20-year-old vagina. I can’t say enough positives about Votiva and the vast improvement it has been for me. Sex is GREAT again!! If I win the lottery I am going to make this a free procedure for every woman I know!! Oh, and my husband noticed a difference, too! – pollyarmstrong
