Have You Considered Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment?

We’re asking this question because the answer could be important to your health and happiness. But before we talk about vaginal rejuvenation treatment in detail, let’s backtrack a moment and talk about…

Vaginal stretching. Bet you didn’t expect stretching to happen! But the truth is that at some point in every woman’s life, her vagina will stretch. Whether it’s due to events that stretch it out like childbirth or just the result of aging, the vagina goes through many natural changes during a woman’s lifetime. But vaginal stretching can be uncomfortable and inconvenient – and even embarrassing and upsetting, depending on the symptoms that come along with it.

Vaginal stretching can cause symptoms like

  • numbness
  • lack of elasticity
  • problems with urination
  • problems with your bowels
  • sexual discomfort

Your Options Have Changed

A decade ago, women who needed solutions for vaginal stretching had limited options. Vaginal rejuvenation treatment solutions only came in the form of painful, dangerous surgeries.

Today, however, the options for vaginal rejuvenation treatment have expanded to minimally invasive procedures like Votiva and W Shots. So, if you’ve been frustrated with the symptoms that come with vaginal stretching, and don’t know which way to turn, read on. We’ll give you the insight you need about vaginal rejuvenation surgery and how it compares to other options so that you can feel comfortable making a decision about how to proceed.

What to Expect From Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment

Don’t let that little voice tell you that you’re vain or a sex fiend for wanting to rejuvenate your vagina. Vaginal rejuvenation isn’t just about appearances and a better sex life.

1 Many women who undergo vaginal rejuvenation treatment do so because they

  • suffer from discomfort
  • experience functional issues like trouble keeping tampons inside of them
  • don’t like the scar tissue surrounding their vagina
  • have problems passing bowel movements
  • experience a “popping” sound while walking around the house, during (for instance) a yoga class, or while carrying out light activities.

All of these conditions can improve once you’ve undergone vaginal rejuvenation treatment.

2 In addition, your sex life may also improve.

That’s because the procedures tighten the vaginal canal and increase the friction experienced during intercourse. More friction equals greater stimulation and more pleasurable sex.

The proof? Research has shown that nearly nine out of 10 vaginal rejuvenation patients experience an improvement in their sexual life after surgery.

Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery vs. Minimally Invasive Procedures

Okay. Let’s acknowledge the elephant in the room. We’re talking about surgery and procedures performed on your vagina. Most women can’t even look at or talk about their vaginas without cringing. Imagining a scalpel, needle, or laser down there seems horrific.

Moreover, if you’ve been studying up on vaginal surgery, you’ve probably been barraged with descriptions of painful, dangerous procedures.

So let’s start there and clear the air. We’ll begin by describing two non-invasive options, Votive and W Shot.


Votiva is a non-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency waves to tighten the vaginal area. It was developed to fix vaginal stretching by enhancing new collagen production. You could think of it as a cutting-edge (sorry!), unique form of non-invasive body contouring.

Votiva can

  • enhance muscle tone
  • increase blood flow
  • boost sensitivity
  • relieve stress incontinence
  • do away with dryness
  • decrease discomfort during intercourse

W Shot

The W Shot is an in-office procedure is almost painless and can

  • rejuvenate and revitalize vaginal and clitoral function
  • dramatically improve sensitivity
  • significantly enhance your sex life
  • end bladder control issues

There are several ways that Votiva Feminine Rejuvenation and W Shots are unlike surgery:

1 They are painless rejuvenation treatments.

2 They don’t involve removing or manipulating vaginal tissue.

3 They do not require local anesthesia and stitches.

4 There is no recovery time, so you can get back to your daily routine immediately after the procedure and can resume sexual intercourse and exercise without pause.

On the other hand…

What You Can Expect After Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgical Treatment.

You will experience mild to moderate pain that will need to be controlled with cold compresses, prescription medications, and over-the-counter pain killers. Your vagina will be swollen for 2-3 days after your surgery. From there, the swelling will decrease over the course of 2-3 weeks. The area will itch for at least a week. You will be advised to avoid strenuous physical activity and sexual intercourse for 3-4 weeks and return to a desk job about two weeks after surgery. Sutures usually dissolve by week 4.

If we’ve put you off by being honest(!), see if this sounds better:

What You Can Expect After Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment Using Votiva or W Shot

The procedures are short in duration. You can then drive yourself back home, to work, to the grocery store, or to pick up the kids. There’s no swelling, no stitches, and no need to avoid sex, exercise, or work. You will notice significant vaginal tightening and external tissue restoration in as little as two weeks from the initial procedure. After that, you can choose whether or not you would like to undergo a series of treatments or get annual maintenance.

To Rejeuve or Not to Rejeuve

Since Votiva and W Shots are non-invasive, almost any woman is a good candidate for either of these vaginal rejuvenation treatment options. We encourage potential patients to be at least 21 to receive treatment, but any woman experiencing symptoms like vaginal laxity, discomfort, or stretching is a good candidate.

However, you may need to pursue another avenue if you have

  • electric implants such as cardiac pacemakers or internal defibrillators.
  • had surgery or implants in the treatment area within the last 6-12 months.
  • a history of skin cancer, herpes virus, or genital cancer in the treatment area.
  • an untreated, debilitating condition like diabetes, cardiac disease, or an autoimmune disease.

Also, if you’re pregnant or nursing, you may need to change your plans.
