A Closer Look
“What is cellulite?”
Vaginal rejuvenation is a trendy buzzword amongst Hollywood’s celebrities and LA’s cosmetic surgery addicted clientele. It is becoming a mainstream household term that women of all ages are familiar with, especially those looking to reverse the effects of time on every part of their body. Science and medicine have both come a long way, and the physical changes that used to be unavoidable to generations of the past are now highly treatable and correctible.
Sexual health is an important aspect of a woman’s life, no matter if you’re in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s or beyond. A growing number of treatments and procedures are available to women who wish to improve the look, feel and function of the vagina and the surrounding structures. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, feminine rejuvenation is one of the most rapidly developing trends in plastic surgery.
Vaginal rejuvenation is a broad term for treatments directed towards the structure, function and appearance of the vagina and labia. These procedures can be done for cosmetic reasons and/or to solve age-related problems, such as lack of vaginal dryness and urinary incontinence.
Vaginal rejuvenation is an umbrella term that encompasses more than a few different medical procedures, including (but not limited to) surgery. Vaginal rejuvenation is often referred to as female genital cosmetic surgery, vulvovaginal plastic surgery, designer vaginal surgery, female genital rejuvenation surgery and more. These procedures can be done for cosmetic reasons or to solve issues related to aging, such as a lack of vaginal lubrication or stress urinary incontinence.
The names above all refer to a broad category of aesthetic and functional treatments for the vagina. Specific vaginal rejuvenation procedures include:
Surgery is sometimes the best option for women who want to achieve the most noticeable age-defying results. For many patients, however, the idea of surgery — particularly in such a sensitive area — can be daunting and undesirable. Modern feminine rejuvenation options now include minimally-invasive and nonsurgical treatments capable of addressing some of the most common issues related to women’s intimate wellness.
As a leading authority in women’s sexual health, I’m always searching for innovative ways to help my patients look and feel their best, inside and out. Contact 310-772-0072 to schedule your consultation at the Berman Women’s Wellness Center in Beverly Hills. I look forward to helping you explore your options for vaginal rejuvenation and facilitating a lasting, positive change in your life.
All these different names mentioned above refer to the same thing. Vaginal rejuvenation procedures include:

The Benefits of Vaginal Rejuvenation with Dr. Jennifer Berman
Targeting these common physical symptoms with nonsurgical rejuvenating treatments can not only improve a woman’s sex life, but it can also improve her relationships, increase her self-confidence, reduce stress and give her a better quality of life. If you have lost your enjoyment in the bedroom or have been faced with an inability to take part in activities you once loved, I invite you to consider some of the diverse treatment options offered at Berman Women’s Wellness Center.
Nonsurgical Vaginal Rejuvenation With Votiva
Votiva is a complete system for improving women’s sexual function and feminine health. The Votiva platform combines two innovative treatments that target internal concerns related to the vaginal canal and external concerns regarding the appearance of the labia majora (outer lips), the labia minora (inner lips) and other areas of the vulva. Both treatments use radiofrequency energy to achieve results comfortably and with no downtime. Depending on the nature of your concerns, you can have both treatments together or just one. We will discuss what’s best for you during your consultation.
These are a few of the reasons I believe Votiva is a powerful tool for improving women’s lives:
Votiva / FormaV
FormaV is a safe and effective option for many women seeking nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation. Women who have given birth vaginally or who are experiencing menopause are ideal candidates for this treatment. Women who struggle with involuntary urinary leakage during exercise, coughing, sneezing, laughing or other activities may wish to consider treatment with FormaV to improve these symptoms. Women who are looking to improve sexual function and women who are interested in aesthetic enhancement of the vulva may also be interested in the benefits FormaV can offer. I customize each treatment according to the patient’s age, concerns and desired results.
FormaV treatments are performed in-office after a thorough consultation. The FormaV wand is gently passed through the vaginal canal while three electrodes at the tip of the wand emit radiofrequency energy. The wand is rotated to ensure all areas are treated evenly. While you may feel pressure or stretching during the treatment, most patients tolerate the sensations well. Treatment of the external tissues generates a mild warming feeling, similar to a heating pad. If you’re concerned about discomfort, we can start the treatment at a lower intensity and adjust as tolerated. Numbing cream is also an option we can discuss.
Patients can expect little to no downtime after a FormaV treatment. Some women experience slight discomfort or sensitivity immediately after the treatment, while others notice no unusual sensations at all. Most patients can return to their daily activities as soon as they leave the Berman Women’s Wellness Center. It’s recommended to wait approximately one week before having vaginal intercourse to allow for optimal healing.
Results of a FormaV treatment can be felt and seen immediately, with continued results that develop over the following weeks. You may notice results after only one session. However, most patients require three treatments for the best and longest-lasting results. I determine the optimal number of sessions for a patient based on her treatment concerns, her goals and whether her vaginal rejuvenation plan involves a combination of modalities or a single treatment approach.
There is very little downtime associated with Aviva. Because the treatment is not surgery, there are no incisions to heal and there is little to no discomfort. Risks are also significantly lower compared to a surgical labiaplasty. You will be given a set of instructions to ensure you heal properly, including being asked to abstain from intercourse and tampon use for a recommended period following treatment.
You may notice the initial skin tightening effects of Aviva shortly after your treatment. Over the weeks that follow, the tissues will continue to tighten and the appearance of the treated areas will improve further. Three Aviva treatments are typically recommended for optimal results.

Frequently Asked Questions
As women go through childbearing, hormonal changes, and everyday aging, many experience changes in their genitalia; changes that can definitely impact their quality of life. Stress urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, vaginal laxity and a decrease in erotic sensation are among the complaints I hear from my patients on a regular basis. I also receive questions and complaints regarding the outer appearance of the aging vagina; the enlarged labia minora, excess skin on the clitoral hood, and laxity of the labia majora.
The good news is our office offers many non-surgical, minimally- invasive options that address both the inner and outer issues concerning the vagina.
Laser energy or cutting- edge radio frequency RF technology is used to heat the vulvar and labial tissue which stimulates collagen and elastin production. The end-result is the shrinking and tightening the tissue.
Whether it’s pelvic floor tightening… tissue remodeling… or improvements in blood circulation…depending on your needs, our office can help determine which treatment option is best for you.
