Votiva is a nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment that tightens vulvovaginal tissues and offers a number of benefits to patients of Dr. Kenneth Benjamin Hughes. Votiva can address changes from aging and childbirth, including vulvovaginal laxity, dryness, and urinary incontinence.

The recommendation from the company, InMode, for Votiva treatment is either one 30 minute session or three 10 minute sessions. The sessions are essentially painfree and do not require numbing treatments. The device itself is a wand that delivers heat through radiofrequency. Patients frequently note a warming sensation and nothing more. Dr. Kenneth Hughes has performed this procedure for patients without complications and with high satisfaction rates.

There may be some soreness, and you should abstain from sexual intercourse for three days. Otherwise, you can resume daily activities immediately.

Many women notice a difference, particularly a decrease in urinary incontinence or tightness, after the first treatment, but more significant changes come as cells turn over and new collagen is produced. Results continue to improve gradually over a few months. The company recommends a follow-up treatment 6 to 12 months out and then yearly, to maintain results.


  • Votiva treatments are a nonsurgical, pain-free way to address several symptoms at once.
  • There is very little downtime.


  • You may not see results immediately. They develop over a few months as your body responds to the treatment.
  • Your body continues to age and change after Votiva treatment, so you may require additional treatments.
  • In addition to internal tightening, the external anatomy including the labia majora and labia minora can be improved as well. The size of each can be reduced in size and tightened.
