diVa Vaginal Laser Treatment:
Just the FAQs
If you’ve ever heard of vaginal rejuvenation, you may have some questions about what exactly it is, why it’s done, and what happens during an actual procedure. The very idea can be a strange thing to consider for many women, but if you’re suffering from a lack of intimacy or experiencing less than optimal vaginal health, it may actually be precisely what you’ve been looking for.
diVa® Vaginal Rejuvenation
By Dr. Michael Coyle, D.O.
Who should consider diVa as a treatment option?
For women who have been through childbirth or menopause; have breastfed or undergone chemotherapy; or had a hysterectomy, diVa laser vaginal therapy can greatly benefit their vaginal health by resurfacing the tissue layers of the vaginal walls. Aging and the events of time, coupled with the stretching and trauma that each of these events can cause to the vaginal tissue, results in thinning and lack of elasticity, which can bear greatly on the quality of intimacy and cause them to feel a lack of self-confidence.
Does a diVa procedure take long?
The diVa is specifically designed to be efficient and provide quick results, requiring only three to five minutes for each treatment session.
How many treatments are necessary to be fully effective?
Depending on the specific needs of the woman, the number of treatments recommended by a specialist such as a urogynecologist or OB/GYN will vary, though the number is generally between one and three treatments. These treatments will take place at intervals between four and six weeks apart, to be followed by one additional treatment every twelve months to maintain efficacy.
Is the procedure a painful one?
The actual diVa device is ergonomically shaped in order to reduce discomfort and minimize any pain that a woman might feel during treatment. No anesthesia is necessary, though the attending physician may use topical anesthetics to numb the area being treated.
Will I feel anything during treatment?
During the procedure, it’s not uncommon to experience some slight pressure against the vaginal wall; and some women may notice an increase in sensitivity to the opening of the vagina. Overall, however, the diVa treatment sessions cause only minimal discomfort.
Will I have to be admitted to the hospital for treatment?
The diVa treatments require no admittance to the hospital and will be done during a short, in-office procedure.
Should I expect any downtime post-treatment?
There is no requirement for downtime or recovery before fully returning to daily activity, though some women might experience slight discharge, spotting, or discomfort afterward. Due to the nature of the procedure, however, sexual intercourse should be avoided for 48 hours before being resumed.
