Forma V Vaginal Rejuvenation
If there’s one area most of us aren’t comfortable thinking about, much less talking about, it is the changes that occur with our vagina and vulva. We’re all prepared for aging on our faces and other areas of our figure, but many of us never even considered vaginal rejuvenation being a thing.
Reality is, pregnancy and childbirth, and natural aging of our tissues can create issues with dryness, internal and external looseness, decreased sensitivity, and even urinary incontinence. That’s why more and more women are opting to have vaginal rejuvenation procedures. At Skintology, we offer Forma V, a non-invasive technology that targets both the internal and external changes that occur with our vagina and vulva.

What Is Forma V?
Inmode puts radiofrequency energy to work in two different treatments: Forma V and Morpheus8 Body. The two treatments utilize different handpieces that deliver uniform radiofrequency energy to remodel existing collagen, and trigger new production of collagen and elastin to tighten and improve skin tone. Both procedures are nonsurgical.
What Can Forma V Treat?
Forma V can treat both internal and external vaginal issues.
Internal issues include:
- Low blood flow or sensitivity
- Lowered sexual interest
- Painful sensations
External issues include:
- Wrinkled appearance of the labia and vulva
Who Could Benefit From Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Inmode procedures are intended for women who want to reverse the results of pregnancy, delivery, and natural aging on their vaginal tissues. This would include women after childbirth, perimenopausal and menopausal women, women who want enhanced sexual sensation, women who have some degree of urinary incontinence, and women who want some vaginal cosmetic improvements. These are generally conditions experienced by women approaching menopause or who have completed it.
These are some specific symptoms that good candidates may be experiencing:
- Increased vaginal dryness
- Reduced vaginal sensation
- Increased sexual dysfunction
- Pain during intercourse
- Urinary incontinence from pressure such as coughing
- Redness in the vaginal tissues
- Slight vaginal discharge
Is Forma V Right For Me?
Forma V could be right for you if you have undergone menopause or are experiencing the symptoms common in postmenopausal women. Forma V can also help if you experience vaginal dryness or have given childbirth. Forma V results can be seen immediately with full results becoming noticeable in just a few weeks.
What Are The Forma V Treatments Like?
Although both Forma V and Morpheus8 Body use radiofrequency energy as their mode of rejuvenating vaginal tissues, the procedures are different.
- Forma V — The small handpiece is first placed inside the vagina to deliver sub-dermal heating to the interior tissues. This heats the vaginal mucosa and initiates new collagen and elastin production. This tightens and rejuvenates the vaginal walls. The handpiece tip is then used to deliver the same heating to the outer genitalia. This tightens these tissues.
- Morpheus8 Body — The same principals of fractional facial skin resurfacing apply here. The Fractora V handpiece is placed against the outer vaginal tissues and its series of fine pins deliver the radiofrequency energy. This RF energy stimulates the vaginal tissue, immediately remodeling the existing collagen and initiating new production, as well. This tightens the vaginal tissues.
- Vtone — Vtone is a gentle, nonsurgical FDA Approved technology designed to provide intravaginal electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) and neuromuscular re-education. The anatomically shaped, two-sided applicator is inserted quickly and easily into the vaginal canal while pelvic floor muscles are targeted to increase strength.
What Is Forma V?
When radiofrequency energy is delivered onto the skin it penetrates the epidermis and converts to heat. This is known a sub-dermal heating. When the body senses heating beneath the epidermis, it responds as if a wound has occurred. This means increased production of collagen and elastin that is sent to the treatment area to heal the perceived wound, even though there isn’t an actual wound of any sort.
What does that do for the vaginal area? The RF energy in Forma V is delivered through a small, completely comfortable handpiece that applies uniform RF energy to both internal and external vaginal tissues. The sub-dermal heating tightens loosened internal vaginal tissues, as well as the outer labia.
How Long Before I See Results From My Forma V Treatments?
Each patient’s response time can vary. Most patients tell us they experience an immediate change in sensation and tightening, as the existing collagen remodels. But these procedures deliver most of their results in the weeks following your treatments. Your vaginal tightness and the appearance of your labia continue to improve as the collagen and elastin production is ramped up as the body’s response to the RF energy.
How Long Will My Results Last With Forma V?
The new collagen and elastin produced are not going anywhere. The problem is, your body’s production of collagen and elastin decreases by one additional percentage point every year after your 20th birthday. So, by your 50th birthday, your body is producing one third less collagen. That’s why your skin slackens with age. This creates lines and wrinkles and thinning skin on the face. In the vaginal area, it creates laxity and sagging labia. You should experience a difference in sensation, tightness, and appearance for up to one year. Yearly treatments can maintain your results.
Will Forma V Increase My Sexual Sensation?
These procedures do increase sexual sensation by improving vaginal lubrication and tightening the overall tissues. Plus, when the appearance of the labia is improved, confidence improves at the same time, always an important aspect to enjoying intimacy.
Is Forma V Painful?
The delivery of radiofrequency energy is not painful. You will feel a sensation of heating, but it will not be uncomfortable. Insertion of the two handpieces in the Forma V treatments is no different than your typical gynecological checkup.
Can I Have These Treatments If I Plan On Having Children?
These procedures only initiate the body to improve the skin tone and firmness. They in no way have any impact on reproductive capability or function.
What Are The Risks Involved With These Forma V Procedures?
These are non-invasive procedures and have proven to have little risk. Patients need to simply abstain from intercourse for three days after their Votiva treatments, and to avoid hot tubs, pools, and hot baths for the same period.
What Is Vtone?
Vtone is a gentle, nonsurgical FDA Approved technology designed to provide intravaginal electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) and neuromuscular re-education. Vtone rehabilitates weak pelvic floor muscles and treat stress, urge & mixed urinary incontinence.
The female anatomy evolves over time due to multiple factors:
• pregnancy and childbirth
• hormonal transformations
Inevitably, the pelvic floor is negatively impacted leading to:
• pelvic floor weakness
• stress urinary incontinence
• reduction in the quality of life
Is Vtone Painful?
Vtone is a comfortable noninvasive treatment. Once the applicator is inserted, our provider will start the treatment with low energy levels, and gradually increase energy according to the patient’s comfort and feeling of muscle contraction. The treatment time takes on average 20-60 minutes depending on the patient tolerance and conditions.
How many treatmnets are required?
The number of treatment sessions depends on the individual patient, and is typically about 6 sessions, spaced every 1-3 weeks apart but can vary according to the patient's response. The amount of treatments can also vary depending on the individual patient's treatment plan; as the Vtone treatment complements the results of both Forma V and O-Shot packages.
