Learn about diVa®: Is it right for you?
Vaginal pain, dryness and laxity are issues most women face at some point in their lives. Childbirth, pregnancy, menopause and even some medical treatments can cause vaginal dysfunction.
Poor vaginal health can cause daily discomfort and painful, unsatisfying intercourse. Vaginal health can also play a role in urinary incontinence.
Today, women have a long-term, non-surgical and non-hormonal option for improving vaginal health. diVa® is an in-office treatment that uses unique laser technology to enhance vaginal lubrication, tone and function. Unlike surgical solutions, there is little to no recovery time.
All about diVa®
diVa® vaginal laser therapy is a non-surgical option for improving vaginal and sexual health. diVa® Hybrid Fractional Laser technology improves moisture, tone, resiliency and elasticity for healthier vaginal and sexual function.
diVa® is non-hormonal, making it an option for atrophy caused by breast cancer, chemotherapy, radiation, or breastfeeding. Treatments are designed and calibrated for each woman's needs and goals.
Treating vaginal pain and dryness with diVa®
A decrease in estrogen production triggers many vaginal health issues. Estrogen keeps the vaginal walls elastic and lubricated. Estrogen production can drop because of menopause, surgical menopause, hormone therapy, hormonal birth control, breastfeeding or chemotherapy. When estrogen levels drop, vaginal tissues can become thinner, drier, less elastic and more fragile.
- Vaginal atrophy - Symptoms include dryness, irritation, soreness and dyspareunia with urinary frequency, urgency and urge incontinence. Atrophy affects nearly half of all postmenopausal women.
- Vaginal laxity - Pregnancy and vaginal delivery can lead to vaginal laxity, a loosening of the vaginal canal and vaginal opening. Vaginal laxity causes a loss of sexual arousal and satisfaction during intercourse.
diVa® can improve vaginal symptoms including:
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal burning
- Vaginal discharge
- Genital itching
- Frequent and urgent urination
- Burning with urination
- Recurrent urinary tract infections
- Urinary incontinence
- Painful intercourse
- Bleeding or spotting after intercourse
- Shortening and tightening of the vaginal canal
diVa® laser technology
diVa's cutting-edge Hybrid Fractional Laser Technology means two lasers work together. One resurfaces the vaginal canal. The other penetrates deeper tissues to rebuild the collagen structures in the vaginal walls for better support and healthy function.
The new collagen growth offers support to the vaginal canal by thickening and "plumping" the vaginal walls. This rebuilding of tissues can also improve vaginal laxity caused by childbirth, menopause, or other health issues.
diVa® improves support to the urethra and bladder to treat minor cases of urinary stress incontinence.
What to expect during diVa® treatment
Patients may experience warmth and pressure during treatment, but the procedure generally causes only minimal discomfort. A topical anesthetic is used to ensure comfort.
diVa® typically takes only three to five minutes to treat the full length of the vagina.
After treatment, patients can return to their daily routine. Patients may experience some discharge, spotting, or discomfort during the first 48 hours after treatment. To allow the vaginal lining to rebuild, patients should avoid sexual intercourse for 24 to 48 hours post-procedure. We will discuss your aftercare with you during your consultation.
Is diVa® painful?
Most women report minimal discomfort during their diVa® treatment.
Do I need to prepare for diVa® treatment?
There are no specific steps to be taken before your diVa® appointment.
How long do diVa® results last?
After treatment, patients experience a period of improvements until they have reached their goal. Then the collagen and other tissue will begin to age naturally. A recent study showed 92 percent of women felt diVa® met their expectations.
