Votiva for Women’s Sexual, Vaginal, and Regenerative Health
Enhanced Wellness Living, Ridgeland, Mississippi, is proud to announce the addition of Votiva Women’s Sexual and Regenerative Health Services in 2021! Founded by Nurse Practitioner, Kelly Engelmann, Enhanced Wellness Living has been serving the Mississippi community for almost 20 years!
Throughout our lives, women’s bodies evolve as a result of childbirth, hormonal transformations, and aging. Previously, there were limited options available to address the issues that can occur as a result of these life changes. New technologies are now available to provide women with broader alternatives to address these changes safely and comfortably. Up to 76% of women may experience decreased vaginal sensation due to laxity, or vaginal loosening, during their lifetimes, you are not alone and you do not have to continue to suffer!
What is Votiva?
The Votiva device allows for safe and effective, hormone-free, pain-free women’s health procedures based on FDA Cleared technologies using bipolar radiofrequency. Votiva for women’s health combines gentle volumetric heating with fractional treatment for a therapeutic experience and immediate results. Votiva uses energy to stimulate the natural healing process and repair your body. Our bodies naturally work to repair themselves, the Votiva treatment supports your body in the process of ensuring it is regenerating cells and healing. This treatment works to restore your body and vaginal health back to your youthful state of health. Votiva does not require the use of medications, hormone therapy, or creams, and often provides immediate results.
What does Votiva Treat?
Votiva is used to treat both medical and aesthetic women’s vaginal health concerns, including but not limited to, urinary incontinence/bladder leakage, vaginal dryness, pelvic pain, pain during sexual intercourse, lack of libido/sex drive, post-childbirth vaginal trauma, menopausal and perimenopausal challenges, weakening of pelvic floor muscles, physical consequences around the lack of sexual activity, and the increase in vaginal laxity/vaginal loosening.
What is Votiva with FormaV?
Votiva with FormaV is a gentle therapeutic device for the treatment of women’s sexual dysfunction or as an adjunct to Kegel exercises (tightening of the muscles of the pelvic floor to increase muscle tone). FormaV intravaginal wand treatments gently heat the treated tissues internally to reduce pain and tighten pelvic floor muscles. This internal vaginal treatment stimulates energy into the tissues and muscle fibers to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and improve blood circulation. FormaV is used to treat health concerns within the vagina including changes that come with aging and hormonal shifts, vaginal dryness, stress urinary incontinence/bladder leakage, painful intercourse, vaginal trauma from childbirth, perimenopausal symptoms, and menopausal symptoms.
What is Votiva with Morpheus8?
Votiva with Morpheus8 is a fractional treatment promoting tissue remodeling through the stimulation of collagen production. Morpheus8 is used on the external vulva (outer vagina) area to remodel and reinvigorate tissue by targeting deeper layers of the skin and promoting more youthful skin. As women age, the tightness and elasticity of the vaginal skin, including the labia and vulva skin, loosens. Through micro-needling of the outer tissue is energized, producing collagen elastin, resulting in thicker, tighter, plumper skin and improve vulva/vaginal appearance.
What is Vaginal Laxity?
Vaginal Laxity, or the loosening of vaginal and vulva tissue, is caused by aging, genetics, and/or trauma not limited to just vaginal childbirth. Up to 76% of women may experience decreased sensation due to laxity during their lifetimes
What is Stress Urinary Incontinence?
Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is when urine leaks out with sudden pressure on the bladder and urethra, causing the sphincter muscles to open briefly. With mild SUI, pressure may be from sudden forceful activities, like exercise, sneezing, laughing, or coughing.

What can I expect during the treatment?
Votiva women’s health vaginal treatments take place in the private environment of our women-run Functional Medicine Clinic in Ridgeland, Mississippi. Prior to treatment, you will complete a consultation, including a physical exam and pelvic floor exam, with our Nurse Practitioner. During treatment, ultrasound gel will be used as a small wand is applied to the area of concern as safe and effective heat stimulates energy into the tissues. Each of your 3 treatments will take approximately 1 hour and you and expect to experience little to no pain, some pressure, or side effects. Many women experience immediate results.
Is the treatment painful?
Depending on the intensity of the treatment, there is little to no downtime. Most patients may have slight discomfort or the feeling of pressure during and immediately after the treatment. Some patients will experience no discomfort at all. You can expect to feel a heating sensation during the treatment and sometimes for several hours after.
