Feminine Rejuvenation

Whether you’re in your twenties or over 60, it’s no secret to you that your body is undergoing constant physical change. We all know that aging is a part of life, and it’s certainly nothing we should fear. It is, however, something that we can plan for. Most of us first become aware of these changes through the skin, in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of elastin and collagen.

While these are changes most women anticipate, it doesn’t exactly make them any more pleasant to experience. Fortunately, for those who wish to take a more proactive approach to physical aging, there are a number of great, noninvasive treatment options available to keep us looking younger and rejuvenated for longer.

While the majority of women anticipate things like facial aging and a slowed metabolism, many are not as familiar with how our vaginas change with time, because yes, she gets older too. Since the topic is not oft-discussed, many of us find ourselves uninformed and woefully unprepared for the realities of our aging lady flowers.



What is Votiva?

So, what does happen down there? For those that choose to experience pregnancy and childbirth, it’s no surprise that some stretching and possible tearing of the vaginal canal and vaginal opening can occur. What you may not know is that even if you never give birth, your vaginal canal (the inside of the vagina) and your vulva (the outer parts of the vaginal region) are going to age – just like the rest of your body.

Years of sexual activity, weight fluctuations, hormonal changes, and high-impact workouts alone will have a marked effect on the health and appearance of your vagina and vulva.

Some of the most common feminine health concerns related to this include:

  • Elasticity and wrinkled appearance of the labia and vulva
  • Low blood flow and sensitivity
  • Pain sensation caused by labial hypertrophy
  • Decreased levels of sexual interest and self-esteem

Not surprisingly, these symptoms can adversely affect your life and your relationship with your partner. Fortunately, for those suffering from vaginal discomfort, or who are unhappy with the physical changes that their nether regions have undergone – there is a solution!

Personique® is honored and excited to be the first practice in Austin to offer Votiva – a non-invasive technology that addresses both internal and external feminine health concerns.



The female body and reproductive system are simply amazing, which is why the many benefits of Votiva might be exactly what you need and deserve. The vaginal canal adapts and facilitates the incredible feat of childbirth, but things don’t always rebound completely, many women are left with cosmetic changes, plus stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and vaginal laxity. In addition to the newfound confidence it provides, Votiva also has the following benefits:

  • Evens out skin pigmentation
  • External and internal vaginal tissue rejuvenation
  • Fixes skin issues such as tone loss and wrinkles
  • Increases blood flow
  • Maintains increased sensitivity
  • Manages labial hypertrophy (enlargement of an organ or tissue)
  • Repairs vaginal laxity

Who are the Best Candidates for VOTIVA?

Votiva is an advanced treatment that positively impacts a woman’s feminine health and overall quality of life. The procedure is great for women who have given birth and gone through menopause, as well as females experiencing post-menopausal symptoms after a hysterectomy or breast cancer treatments. Votiva can be especially beneficial for individuals who cannot, or prefer not to receive estrogen therapy.

The treatment itself is quick and comfortable, and not unlike your annual pap smear. Votiva offers immediate results, with continued improvement over time.


Much like many of our procedures, the first step to Votiva is realistic expectations about what the procedure can and can’t do for your appearance. The process does not require any needs in advance, though we recommend a consultation and patients to be in good health. After an initial appointment to discuss your procedure, we ask you to avoid certain medications, such as aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs. The purpose of vaginal rejuvenation is not just to restore form and function for practical reasons, but to help women feel confident, sexy, and in tune with their most intimate parts again.



Many of our patients found the process smooth and timely when making plans for someone to drive them to and from Personique, ease of transportation is highly recommended. Once we have determined the right steps forward, the first step of the actual procedure is the removal of fat tissue via a procedure known as liposuction. Both the area from which the fat is taken and the treatment site are anesthetized with our leading aesthetic practices in Austin anesthetic. Entry points are made to insert a narrow tube called a cannula ( a thin tube that doctors insert into a person’s body cavity) directly into fat pockets. We are here to answer questions and provide you with our expert guidance if you have any questions or concerns before your appointment.

On the day of your Votiva treatment, your certified technician uses a special device that delivers radiofrequency heat to your vagina which stimulates natural collagen production to rebuild healthy tissue. Depending on which procedure you are getting (perhaps both), the applicator is passed over the exterior of your vagina (FormaV) or inserted inside for vaginal tightening (FractoraV). You may experience a slight warming sensation throughout your treatment.

This treatment takes about 30 minutes and requires no anesthesia.


At Personique, we make sure our patients not only understand the procedure but are crystal clear with a comfortable path to recovery. Your surgeon will give you post-operative instructions, including a list of restricted activities or movements to keep you on a fast track toward your new self. You’ll be allowed to use ice packs and pain relievers for discomfort. Before consenting to treatments, make sure you understand the risks.

votiva treatment options

Votiva employs uniform radiofrequency heating to improve elastin and collagen and offers two handheld devices – FormaV and FractoraV. This provides the clinician greater control and movement to better address your specific areas of concern.


FormaV is a non-invasive, sub-dermal heating technology that applies uniform RF heating to both internal and external vaginal tissues. This versatile tool can treat vulvar laxity or labial hypertrophy. In layman’s terms, this treatment helps to tighten the internal vaginal tissue as well as the labial tissues (externally visible portions of the vaginal region), helping to reduce sag and “Camel Toes”. The result is noticeably softer, smoother skin, and more confidence when wearing swimsuits and other tight-fitting clothing.


FractoraV employs customized fractional RF energy to improve skin tone and texture through resurfacing. This bi-polar RF treatment allows your practitioner to accurately target precise regions for deep heating and tightening. This full-depth heating improves elastin and promotes collagen remodeling, aiding in the regrowth of thicker and more youthful skin.



For many people considering Votiva in Austin, the cost is understandably an important factor. Prices for this type of treatment may vary depending on the type of technique used and the extent of the procedure. For the most accurate cost, please schedule a free consultation.
