Vaginal Rejuvenation (Votiva) in Ashburn, VA


You are not alone! Due to menopause, childbirth, the natural aging process, and a variety of other factors, areas of the inner and outer vagina can become lax or dry. This can lead to sexual dysfunction, discomfort in certain clothing, and cosmetic concerns. Votiva is a state-of-the-art platform that utilizes RF energy in order to stimulate the growth of collagen in the affected areas, thereby strengthening them on the inside and out. It is a noninvasive option to boost your performance and confidence inside and outside of the bedroom. The device is FDA approved for this treatment. As a potential added benefit, some women have stated that their urinary complaints have improved and they do not leak as they did before.  We encourage patients in Ashburn, VA with insecurities about these issues to schedule an appointment with the Women’s Health Nurses at The Loudoun Center for Plastic Surgery and discuss whether or not Votiva could improve their situation. The Women’s Health section is run all by women and all contact, examination and treatments are performed by female Nurses certified in using this exciting advancement in technology.

Everything was better than I could imagine! So happy I went with Dr. Brown!

Surgical Experience


Typically, women choose to undergo vaginal rejuvenation after going through the process of childbirth. However, there are a variety of reasons you might want the procedure. Ideal candidates for vaginal rejuvenation with Votiva experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Laxity and wrinkled appearance of the labia and vulva
  • Pain due to enlarged labia
  • Decreased vaginal lubrication
  • Painful intercourse
  • Incontinence
  • Lack of sensation in the vaginal area
  • Weakened vaginal muscles



Most patients do not require the administration of any form of anesthesia before the procedure. This treatment process is very similiar to a vaginal ultrasound. Once we’re prepared to begin the treatment, a handpiece will be carefully glided over and/or inserted into the vagina. This handpiece emits thermal RF energy, which encourages the natural production of collagen and elastin in the body. These nutrients are responsible for strong, healthy skin tissue in and around the vagina. While there is a mild heating element involved, most patients find Votiva to be almost entirely pain-free. In fact, many have compared it to a simple Pap smear. In total, this procedure usually takes around 30 minutes to perform.


When compared to surgical alternatives, one of the greatest benefits of Votiva is the lack of downtime. For the most part, patients are free to return to their normal daily lives at the immediate conclusion of the procedure. The one restriction associated with the treatment is that we do ask patients to refrain from sexual activity and using tampons for at least 24 hours in order to allow the area to properly heal. Within a few days, most patients will begin to notice both functional and cosmetic improvements. The exact number of treatments before you reach your optimal results can vary from patient to patient and will be discussed during your initial consultation.


How much does Votiva cost?

Each vaginal rejuvenation session is priced according to the specific needs of the patient. We can work with our patients to create flexible payment plans and financing options that allow them to achieve the results they desire in an affordable manner.

Does vaginal rejuvenation work?

Vaginal rejuvenation can improve vaginal laxity. This relates to issues that are physical or functional. It can be used to treat women who are experiencing sexual dysfunction due to dryness, looseness, or other issues. Alternatively, it is can also be a great option for those who simply want aesthetic improvements.

Does Votiva treat loose skin?

While Votiva can be used to treat mild vaginal laxity, women who have loose skin — such as an oversized or stretched labia majora — may be better candidates for a surgical procedure. Female rejuvenation, on the other hand, is usually a better option for women who seek increased tightness within their vaginal walls.
