Childbirth and the natural aging process cause changes which may affect feminine wellness. A particularly strenuous childbirth or multiple childbirths can cause stretching of the vagina and the effects of menopause can cause physical and functional changes that may include:


excessive dryness (also known as vaginal atrophy)

vaginal burning

painful intercourse

painful urination

more frequent urinary tract infections

mild to moderate urinary incontinence

lichen sclerosus


Many of these symptoms can be relieved by Votiva.

At Brown, Pearson, and Guepet Gynecology and Urogynecology, we are proud to offer this non-invasive, non-surgical, in-office treatment.  There is no downtime or side effects so you are able to stay active after each treatment.

Votiva treatments use radiofrequency (RF) energy to gently heat tissue to restore collagen and increase vaginal elasticity.  The procedure consists of three 45 minute treatments-one per month over a three month period.  A touchup treatment is recommended 9-18 months after the third treatment. Treatments last about 45 minutes per session. These treatments are gentle and relaxing and are often described as a warm internal massage. There is no downtime and most patients can return to regular activity same day. 

Votiva is not covered by insurance, but our office offers special packages throughout the year to make this option affordable to our patients.

Votiva can be performed in conjunction with Morpheus8 for treatment of lichen sclerosus as well as greater cosmetic results.
