diVa® Therapy FAQs
Vaginal dysfunction is more than just physical pain or irritation; it disrupts your daily life and causes stress in your relationships. Poor vaginal health, dryness and laxity can all lead to painful or unsatisfying intercourse. Poor vaginal health can also be a contributing factor to urinary incontinence.
diVa® vaginal laser therapy gives women a painless, non-surgical option for improving their vaginal and sexual health so they can feel confident and in control. diVa® uses Sciton's Hybrid laser to tone and tighten the vaginal canal for healthier vaginal function. This fast, effective treatment improves moisture, tone and elasticity.
How can diVa® effectively treat so many conditions? Here are some of our diVa® FAQs to help you learn more about diVa® laser vaginal therapy.
How does diVa® work?
diVa's cutting-edge Hybrid Fractional Laser Technology means two lasers work together to resurface the vaginal canal, increasing the thickness of the vaginal lining and rebuilding the collagen structures deep in the vaginal walls for better support and healthy function.
This rebuilding of tissues can also improve vaginal laxity caused by childbirth, menopause or other health issues. Because it improves support to the vagina, urethra and bladder, diVa® is also a proven treatment for minor cases of urinary stress incontinence.
What can I expect during diVa® treatment?
diVa® vaginal laser therapy is customized for your needs and takes just a few minutes to treat the entire vaginal canal. And it can all be done in the familiar comfort of our office.
During diVa® treatment, some women report feeling pressure on the vaginal walls or warmth in the vagina, but usually, have very little sensitivity or pain. In some cases, there is increased sensitivity at the vaginal opening. We can offer a topical anesthetic during the procedure if you have concerns.
How long do diVa® treatments last?
diVa® stimulates the regrowth of your own, new tissue and you will see improvements continue for several months before reaching the full effect. As time passes, those new tissues will eventually age. However, because diVa® is non-surgical and non-ablative, you can maintain your results with repeated treatments as needed.
Who should consider diVa® as a treatment option?
diVa® can help women of any age who want to improve their vaginal function after childbirth, during and after menopause or after chemotherapy.
Because diVa® is non-hormonal and non-surgical, it is ideal for women who are sensitive to hormone therapy or who have vaginal health issues caused by breast cancer, hysterectomy, childbirth and menopause.
This treatment can be a good option for women affected by sexual symptoms including struggling to reach orgasm or difficulty with arousal.
diVa® laser vaginal therapy can improve vaginal health by helping to:
- Regain elasticity and vitality in vaginal tissues
- Alleviate vaginal dryness
- Decrease painful intercourse
- Improve bladder control
- Strengthen the pelvic floor
Does a diVa® procedure take long?
Each diVa® treatment can be done in the comfort of our offices and takes only three to five minutes. That is enough time for diVa's dual-laser technology to treat the surface layers and structural tissues along the full length of the vaginal canal.
How many diVa® Trtreatments are necessary to be fully effective?
For optimal new tissue growth and vaginal health improvement, most women report the best results after three treatments taking place over several months.
After that, one treatment per year will help maintain your results. However, every woman's body, medical history and goals are different. We'll go over your plan during your consultation. Because it is non-surgical, diVa® can be repeated as many times as necessary to achieve the results you want.
Is diVa® treatment painful?
diVa® treatment is non-surgical, offering effective results with little or no pain.
Will I have to be admitted to the hospital for diVa® laser therapy?
No, diVa® vaginal laser rejuvenation can be done quickly and comfortably in our office.
Should I expect any downtime post-treatment?
With zero recovery time after treatment, most women return to their daily routines with minimal discomfort and little, if any, discharge.
Generally, you should avoid sexual intercourse for up to 48 hours after treatment. We'll discuss your personalized post-treatment care.
What types of conditions does diVa® treat?
Causes of vaginal pain include a lack of natural moisture, thinning vaginal walls, a vaginal structure without support and other factors.
This pain and discomfort can also lead to sexual health and relationship issues, such as decreased libido and lack of sexual arousal and satisfaction.
diVa® laser therapy is proven effective in treating:
- Vaginal atrophy
- Vaginal laxity
- Lack of vaginal lubrication
- Dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
- Stress urinary incontinence
Is anesthesia necessary for diVa®?
If you have concerns, we can apply a topical anesthetic for your comfort. Because diVa® is so precise and takes so little time, most women report a comfortable experience.
What technology does the diVa® laser user?
diVa® uses Sciton's customizable Hybrid laser to resurface the vaginal lining and trigger the growth of collagen in the vaginal walls. By using ablative/ non-ablative lasers, diVa® can improve many issues with one type of treatment and target specific areas for optimized results.
