IMPROVE YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE
- Minimally invasive, office-based laser vaginal therapy with little recovery and downtime. DiVa utilizes revolutionary Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) technology, providing the only true option for improving lubrication and vaginal mucosa tissue, and is also good for mild to moderate vaginal laxity.
diVa delivers two laser therapies at once for a combined effect. The first laser deeply resurfaces the layers of the vaginal wall, replacing it with brand new, healthy tissue. The second laser heats the layers of the tissue where collagen exists.
Unlike other laser therapies that only penetrate the top layer of tissue, the depth of the heat generated by the HFL technology penetrates through multiple layers of the vaginal tissue to stimulate healthier tissue, increase collagen, and improve tissue density and elasticity.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- Who is an ideal candidate for diVa?
- Women that have had children or are experiencing menopause may be interested in a resurfacing treatment to improve the quality of their vaginal tissue.
- What types of conditions does diVa treat?
- diVa laser therapy addresses a variety of concerns including: - Vaginal laxity (when the vaginal tissue is over-stretched) - Vaginal atrophy (vaginal dryness, burning, itching and/or excess discharge or decreased vaginal lubrication during sexual activity) - Painful sex or loss of sexual sensation due to thinning of the vaginal tissue
- How long does a diVa procedure take?
- diVa’s ergonomic design allows for comfortable, fast and easy treatments. Each procedure takes 3 to 5 minutes to treat the full length of a vaginal canal. Please allow approximately 30 to 45 minutes for your appointment for check-in, set-up, application of the topical anesthetic prior to the diVa treatment, and check-out/post-procedure discharge instruction.
- How many treatments are recommended for diVa?
- Three laser treatments are given every 4 to 6 weeks, followed by one maintenance treatment every 12 months.
- What do patients experience during the diVa treatment?
- You may experience a slight pressure against the vaginal wall during the diVa treatment, and some patients may experience increased sensitivity near the vaginal opening. diVa laser therapy is fast with minimal discomfort.
- What do patients experience in the next 48 hours after diVa treatment?
- You may return to your daily routine with minimal to no discharge, spotting, or discomfort; however, you should avoid sexual intercourse for up to 48 hours.
- Is anesthesia necessary for diVa?
- No, diVa is performed as in-office procedure. A topical anesthetic may be applied to increase your comfort but is not necessary.
- What is the diVa laser technology?
- diVa utilizes the world’s first and only revolutionary Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) technology. diVa delivers two laser therapies at once for a combined effect. The first laser deeply resurfaces the layers of the vaginal wall, replacing it with brand new, healthy tissue. The second laser heats the layers of the tissue where collagen exists. Unlike other laser therapies that only penetrate the top layer of tissue, the depth of the heat generated by the HFL technology penetrates through multiple layers of the vaginal tissue to stimulate healthier tissue, increase collagen, and improve tissue density and elasticity.
- Is diVa painful?
- The sensation described by women who have undergone diVa and diVaTyte is that it feels warm but not painful. A topical numbing cream will be placed in the vagina to help reduce any discomfort. Sedation or general anesthesia is not needed as the procedure is very well tolerated in the office.
- How is diVa different from other laser vaginal therapies?
- Unlike other laser therapies, the diVa/diVaTyte hybrid laser technology allows for individual customization for your exact needs according to age, symptoms, the shape/size of your vagina and the degree of atrophy. Some of the other lasers only improve the top layer of tissue but the diVa/diVaTyte laser works on both the top layer and deeper into the collagen layer, promoting improved health of the vaginal tissue and increased strength and elasticity of the tissue. With the other laser types, it may appear less costly but you may need additional treatments as it does not penetrate to the deeper tissues.
- What is the difference between vaginal rejuvenation surgery and laser vaginal therapy?
- Surgical vaginal rejuvenation is a more invasive option for cases of severe vaginal laxity, and defects from prior childbirth trauma/episiotomy scars/tears during childbirth. Vaginal rejuvenation surgery is performed under general anesthesia, it takes about two hours to perform. Afterward, at home rest and recovery with exercise restrictions are necessary. Surgery is a good option for patients simultaneously needing sling placement for stress urinary incontinence. Surgery is also a good option for severe laxity.
