Women’s Health Q & A
What changes occur in a woman’s health throughout her life?
For women who go through childbearing, the impact on their vaginal health can be significant, leaving them with loose tissue and general vaginal laxity.
But even women who don’t bear children can succumb to these unwanted changes as the structural proteins in their tissue — namely collagen and elastin — begin to naturally wane with age.
The end result in both cases is loose vaginal tissue that can cause discomfort in terms of tugging and twisting, not to mention the effect it has on the outward appearance of your vagina.
How are these changes in a woman’s health treated?
The OB/GYNs at Monroe OBGYN offer the latest tools to help women successfully navigate the unwelcome changes that often come on the heels of age and declining hormone levels. At the head of the list is the Votiva® system by InMode.
This unique treatment tool is cleared for temporary improvements in your blood circulation, muscle pain relief, and muscle relaxation, and it also serves as an adjunct to Kegel exercises (tightening of the muscles of your pelvic floor to increase muscle tone).
With Votiva, your doctor can firm up loose skin and promote better overall vaginal health through renewed resources, including collagen and elastin. As well, the improvement in your blood vessel health helps up shore up thinning and lax tissue, delivering valuable nutrients for better health.
What is a Votiva treatment like?
Votiva is a noninvasive treatment in which one of the health care providers at Monroe OBGYN delivers radiofrequency energy into your vaginal tissue. This energy heats up your tissue, causing both a coagulation response, which tightens tissue, as well as a collagen response, which helps to rebuild your tissue gradually, from the inside out.
Most women benefit from a series of Votiva treatments, typically two or three, which they space out by several weeks to allow time for your body to respond. As you progress through your Votiva treatments, you notice gradual improvements as the improved circulation and collagen work together to greatly improve your tissue health.
