Vaginal rejuvenation is a medical term used to describe therapies for improving muscle tone and function of the vaginal tissues. As women age, hormone production naturally decreases, leading to vaginal dryness and sexual discomfort. Pregnancy and childbirth can also impact the muscles and tissues of the vagina, causing stretching and weakness that may lead to incontinence.
Dr. Chen uses the Votiva radiofrequency workstation to reduce these uncomfortable symptoms and improve your quality of life.
Votiva is a system that uses radiofrequency to gently warm body tissues – including skin, muscle, and internal vaginal tissues – to improve blood circulation, relieve pain, and relax muscles. The Votiva system utilizes different radio frequencies, depending on the treatment area and your symptoms, to produce reliable results in about 30-60 minutes.
As your vaginal tissue is heated, the cells inside your body reconfigure to produce more collagen and blood flow. In turn, this increases strength, flexibility, and moisture in the vaginal tissues. With a separate handheld wand, the Votiva can also improve the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and facial wrinkles.
During your Votiva treatment, you’ll undress to allow access to the treatment area. Dr. Chen ensures you are draped with a towel or gown for modesty before beginning your procedure. He then prepares the treatment area by gently cleaning your skin or vaginal tissues.
Dr. Chen turns on the Votiva machine and applies a slippery gel to the handheld wand, if it’s being used internally. He waves the handheld wand over your skin or carefully slides it inside your vagina. While the wand is in use, you’ll feel a comfortable warming sensation.
Depending on the size of the treatment area, your visit may last 30-60 minutes. Afterward, Dr. Chen removes the wand from your skin or vaginal area and provides you with a sanitary cloth to clean your skin. You can get dressed as soon as you’re ready and return to your normal activities immediately.
After your vaginal rejuvenation session, you’ll likely notice an improvement in the moisture and feel of your vaginal area. In some cases, Dr. Chen recommends three or four sessions over a six-month period to see the most benefit.
Dr. Chen also offers Fractora™, a noninvasive radiofrequency procedure, to improve complexion, reduce skin imperfections caused by acne and acne scars, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Using a small handheld device, Dr. Chen delivers therapeutic radiofrequency energy to your skin to break down acne scars and decrease hyperpigmentation from acne and sun exposure, as well as improve collagen formation for a smoother, tighter appearance.
Depending on the current state of your skin, Dr. Chen may recommend a series of three to six visits, all of which last under an hour. Afterward, you can return to your normal daily routine. With Fractora, Dr. Chen can help you improve your skin without the need for injections or surgery.
