What is Forma-V?

A woman’s body goes through innumerable changes with the passage of time and not all of these changes are for the better. Some changes are to the appearance and functioning of the vagina. Women often experience issues like diminished sexual pleasure, urinary incontinence, or a loss of vaginal moisture. Votiva Forma V is a revolutionary treatment that makes vaginal rejuvenation possible without the need for any type of surgery. This is made possible through the power of radiofrequency (RF) energy which can improve the internal tightness, circulation, and sensation of the vagina.


The use of localized heat to the inside of the vagina allows it to reach the underlying layers of tissue more effectively. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin which help with the remodeling and tightening of the tissues, thereby increasing circulation. The non-invasive treatment is an excellent substitute to surgical procedures that are much riskier.

How does Forma-V work?

Any treatment starts with a consultation where the patient’s medical history, concerns and goals are discussed and addressed. When it is time for the procedure, the Forma-V probe is lubricated and gently inserted into the vaginal canal or onto the external tissues. During the treatment the machine monitors the level of heat that is being applied to the vaginal canal and exterior tissue to ensure the safety and comfort of the patient.


A topical numbing cream is used to minimize any discomfort before the Forma-V application is used to apply heat. The application is rotated to ensure that the delivery of heat is uniform and the entire procedure lasts between 30 and 60 minutes. Patients are easily able to walk out of the clinic after the procedure has been completed.

Is Forma-V treatment painful?

Forma-V is a safe and effective, non-invasive procedure. The treatment is not painful at all and most women report a mild heating sensation which is not painful but the feeling can be foreign to some people. The Forma-V machine is specifically designed to ensure the safety of patients to help them remain safe and comfortable throughout the treatment.

How long does a Forma-V treatment take?

The non-invasive nature of the procedure negates the need for any surgical incisions and this has many benefits. Not only is there less chance of side effects, bacteria and other complications, the treatment is also just as quick as it is effective. Depending on the intensity of your goals and the areas being treated, treatment sessions can last anywhere from 20 to 60 minutes.

Side effects of Forma-V

Forma-V is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure. This alone makes it a much better and safer option than traditional labiaplasty. Patients might experience some mild swelling or discomfort after the procedure but these side effects are only temporary and usually go away within one or two days.

How many Forma-V treatments are required for optimal results?

One to three treatment sessions are usually recommended but this can be changed as Forma-V is a versatile treatment that can address various issues and concerns. The condition of the patient and the goals they have in mind also influence how many treatment sessions are required. The degree of laxity or labia elongation needs to be corrected might require additional sessions with each session usually being scheduled one month apart.

Who is a good candidate for Forma-V?

Forma-V is a versatile treatment that can treat a variety of issues amongst women including vaginal laxity and its side effects such as urinary stress incontinence, vaginal dryness, or loss of sexual sensation. The treatment is a substitute for traditional surgical labiaplasty which means that people planning on going for a surgical rejuvenation can instead opt for this non-invasive, non-surgical treatment instead. Vaginal dryness, decreased sensation, or sagging labia can be treated through Forma-V and the treatment can be a huge boost for women that struggle with self-conscious and physical discomfort.

Is there any downtime after a Forma-V treatment?

Patients who undergo the Forma-V treatment are free to return to their daily lives and everyday tasks and activities once the treatment has been completed. The procedure is non-invasive in nature and does not require for any incisions which means that there is no downtime either. Some patients might feel minor side effects and slight discomfort after the treatment but this is only temporary and they usually subside within a couple of days. One huge upside of Forma-V is that since it is non-surgical, the risk of experiencing any lasting side effects such as bleeding, scarring, dryness, or a loss of sensation is almost zero.
