Vaginal Dryness

Vaginal Dryness: How to Treat It

As women age, various changes in hormone production can lead to thinning of the vaginal walls. Thinner walls mean that you'll have fewer cells to create moisture. Although this may seem like a minor issue, vaginal dryness can negatively impact your sex life.

For starters, it contributes to pain during intercourse and can even lead to loss of sexual desire. Luckily, there's a way to rejuvenate your vaginal area, strengthening the vaginal walls, rebuilding collagen and elastin, improving blood flow, and toning the labia to restore sensation.

Here's how Votiva can help relieve vaginal dryness.

What's Votiva?

Votiva is an FDA-approved, non-surgical vaginal laxity treatment that utilizes radiofrequency (RF) technology to limit vaginal dryness and laxity. No surgery or incisions are needed and it can tighten both external and internal vaginal tissues.

How Does Votiva Work to improve Vaginal Health?

Aging and childbirth are among the leading causes of vaginal stretching, laxity, and dryness. Women suffering from vaginal dryness exhibit various symptoms such as urinary incontinence, decreased elasticity, and vaginal sensation, which can be pretty embarrassing.

Using advanced technology based on radiofrequency engineering, Votiva uses gentle heat to enhance the production of proteins within the sub-layers of your skin. This, in turn, promotes the regrowth of vaginal mucosa. Votiva comes with two separate, handheld elements, FormaV and Morpheus, allowing your doctor to address your feminine health concerns depending on your unique needs.


FormaV is a non-invasive therapeutic device used on either the interior or exterior of your vagina for tissue remodeling. It achieves this by:

  • Tightening the vaginal walls
  • Providing muscle relaxation
  • Improving blood circulation
  • Tightening the skin of your labia

Although treatment with FormaV may come with a slight warming sensation, many patients rarely experience discomfort during treatment. Your doctor will apply a gel on the Formav applicator, warm it, and then insert it into your vaginal canal.

The small probe is rotated 360 degrees and moved in and out to distribute the heat in your vagina canal uniformly. This process triggers your body to start producing more elastin and collagen, thereby minimizing vaginal dryness.


Morpheus utilizes radiofrequency energy along with microneedling to heat tissues on the exterior part of your vagina, including the labia majora. The RF energy stimulates new collagen growth, thus tightening the external vaginal area. This helps address feminine health issues including sexual pleasure and laxity as well as discoloration and other aesthetic concerns. It's effective in reversing the signs of stretching and aging, improving the exterior appearance of your vaginal area.

What Are the Benefits of Votiva?

Votiva treatment uses innovative automatic technology to ensure your complete safety. Though the device applies heat to delicate parts of your vagina, temperature sensors automatically turn off the delivery of energy whenever the probe exceeds a pre-set temperature threshold.  This built-in safety measure eliminates the risk of heat-related vaginal injury.

As a versatile, non-invasive treatment method, Votiva:

  • Reduces vaginal pain
  • Improves sexual interest and pleasure
  • Improves vaginal dryness
  • Increases vaginal sensitivity
  • Restores vaginal strength and tone
  • Reduces urinary incontinence

Additionally, since Votiva's rejuvenation process is quick and non-invasive, you don't have to worry about pain, incisions, or downtime.

How Many Sessions With Votiva Do You Need to Treat Vaginal Dryness?

Treat vaginal dryness with Votiva, it's best to undergo 3 successive treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results. Generally, your doctor will help you choose the number and spacing of treatment sessions depending on the degree of your health concerns and your exact needs.
