Intimate Wellness Treatments at SkinOvation
Intimate treatments at SkinOvation encompass a range of procedures designed to improve women’s wellness. Many of our patients are postpartum or entering menopause; however, intimate treatments can be helpful for women of any age.
Our treatments are administered with the EmpowerRF platform from InMode, an internationally renowned developer of state-of-the-art light, laser and radio frequency devices.
EmpowerRF is a multifunctional platform that incorporates several technologies to treat cosmetic and functional issues related to the vagina and vulva. These safe, minimally invasive and noninvasive treatments require little to no downtime. Some require just one session, while others involve a series of treatments for best results.
Why Choose SkinOvation?
SkinOvation is dedicated to providing safe, effective and leading-edge women’s wellness solutions to the South Asheville area. All our intimate procedures are performed by our founders, Wendy Harper-Lonabaugh and Tina Franklin.
Wendi is a board-certified family nurse practitioner with more than 10 years of experience in the medical aesthetics domain. As our aesthetic training director, she brings extensive expertise in cosmetic procedures and a passion for helping patients meet their aesthetic goals.
Tina, SkinOvation’s CEO, entered the world of aesthetics as a registered nurse with long-time experience in practice management. Before establishing SkinOvation with Wendi, she founded residential and outpatient facilities, and managed a large primary care dermatology practice.
Both Wendi and Tina are committed to bringing their patients top-tier aesthetic treatments in a safe, expertly-run environment.
VTone is an FDA-approved technology that encourages neuromuscular re-education in the vagina. This procedure rehabilitates weak pelvic floor muscles to address stress, urge and mixed urinary continence, and is usually recommended in conjunction with Kegel exercises.
A VTone treatment involves inserting a small, single-use wand into the vaginal canal. This wand delivers gentle electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to exercise and strengthen your pelvic floor, delivering far greater results than Kegel exercises alone.
This treatment requires no recovery time, and you’ll experience greater bladder control with a single treatment. However, a series of up to 10 sessions will help you achieve even greater control, with maximum results felt 1–2 weeks after your last treatment.
This procedure stimulates your body’s collagen production to firm up loose intimate skin. FormaV employs RF energy to deeply heat the tissue of intimate areas, inside and out. It temporarily improves blood circulation, reduces pain and relaxes tight muscles. It may also improve dryness and laxity, and reduce pain during intercourse.
FormaV requires no downtime, and results will gradually appear over 6–12 weeks. For most of our patients, we recommend undergoing three FormaV treatments scheduled 4–6 weeks apart, followed by annual maintenance sessions.
Morpheus8V is a fast and effective treatment that remodels skin and fat. The device delivers RF energy through tiny needles to heat delicate skin, causing the tissue to become firmer and tighter.
The procedure enhances the look of your intimate areas and reduces discomfort caused by loose or thinning tissue. It’s also reported to increase bladder control, lubrication and sexual enjoyment.
This minimally invasive procedure is performed without general anesthesia and has long-lasting results. Most patients require just a single session to achieve their goals, then annual maintenance treatments. Unlike many other resurfacing treatments, Morpheus8V is safe for all skin tones.
This deep fractional treatment combines microneedling with RF energy to remodel skin, fat and collagen. The powerful Morpheus8 device offers even greater results than Morpheus8V, due to its greater depth of penetration. It provides aesthetic and functional changes comparable to surgery – without extensive downtime or general anesthesia.
One session is required for most patients to achieve their aesthetic goals. Morpheus8 is safe for all skin tones.
This powerful, minimally invasive outpatient procedure sculpts and tightens delicate tissue. It may also improve sexual function and urinary control. Performed using local anesthetic only, this contouring solution can serve as an alternative to intimate cosmetic surgery.
Aviva combines external, skin-tightening RF energy and a cannula inserted below the skin to resculpt your intimate areas. Results are visible after 1–2 weeks and continue to develop over time. Most of our patients undergo a single Aviva treatment; this procedure can also be paired with Morpheus8V at the same appointment for even greater results.

Intimate Treatments FAQ
Who are the best candidates for intimate treatments?
These treatments are ideal for women who wish to rejuvenate or enhance the aesthetics of their intimate areas. The symptoms we address include:
- Decreased sensitivity
- Lack of sexual pleasure
- Loose or stretched tissue
- Painful intercourse
- Stress, urge or mixed incontinence
What is RF microneedling?
Many of our intimate treatments rely on RF-assisted microneedling. This technology uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin and deliver short bursts of RF heat energy. It’s most commonly used as a facial treatment but can be performed elsewhere on the body as well.
The combination of heat and microwounds encourages the body to produce more collagen and elastin, key proteins for skin health. As the skin heals, it will be smoother, tighter and firmer.
What is the recovery process?
Our intimate treatments offer far less downtime than surgical alternatives. In fact, in the case of FormaV, you’ll only need to abstain from intercourse and hot baths for 2–3 days. More involved procedures such as Aviva require up to 2 weeks for a full recovery; however, you can return to work and perform most of your usual daily activities a few days after treatment.
How do I prepare for an intimate treatment?
In addition to any instructions given to you at your initial consultation, please:
- Schedule your appointment on a date when you will not be menstruating
- Within 1 year of appointment: have a normal PAP smear
- 4 weeks before: avoid tanning beds and sun exposure
- 1 week before: avoid aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen and any supplements
