Improving Vaginal Function with diVa
The diVa® laser treatment is a 3-to-5 minute in-office procedure that uses both ablative and non-ablative lasers to resurface the vaginal walls and trigger new tissue both on the surface and in deeper tissues. diVa® uses Sciton’s Hybrid laser to treat the full length of the vaginal canal to tone and tighten for healthier vaginal function.
What causes a decline in vaginal health and function?
· Childbirth stretches the vaginal canal and surrounding tissue, and the tissue may not return to its former state. Vaginal childbirth can damage vaginal walls, the perineum and surrounding tissues. This damage causes diminished vaginal health and function. Menopause causes reduced estrogen production by the ovaries. This hormonal drop can lead to thinning, drying and inflamed vaginal walls, which decreases vaginal function.
· Chemotherapy After having chemotherapy for cancer some women have painful thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls.
Which vaginal health conditions are helped by diVa?
· Stress urinary incontinence (SUI)
· Vaginal lubrication
· Dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
· Vaginal laxity
How can diVa® improve all of these problems with one type of treatment?
diVa® is a dual-laser treatment. The first laser resurfaces the vaginal walls by stimulating new, healthy tissue growth. The second laser heats the deeper layers of the tissue where collagen is produced. These two actions increase the thickness of the vaginal mucosa and the amount of collagen and elastin in the tissues that provide structural support and functional integrity of the vagina. All of these processes work together to improve tone and moisture in the vagina and assist with controlling urination.
What should I expect during treatment?
There is no specific preparation for diVa® laser treatment. It can be performed in just a few minutes in the comfort of your provider’s office. Some women feel pressure or heat during the procedure, but most treatments are pain-free. If you have concerns, your provider can offer a topical anesthetic.
What is the recovery time after diVa?
The vast majority of women return to their daily routines with minimal to no discharge or discomfort. However, you should avoid sexual intercourse for up to 48 hours. Your provider will give you a full guide to your recovery.
I have to avoid any hormone therapies for the good of my overall health. Can I still use diVa?
diVa® is a non-hormonal and non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment. It is ideal for vaginal health issues caused by breast cancer, hysterectomy, childbirth and menopause.
What makes diVa® a superior option for repairing vaginal function?
diVa® offers a high level of precision and customization. The dual wavelength ablative/ non-ablative lasers mean you can address many issues with one type of treatment. diVa® can also target specific areas for your best health and desired results.
Who is a good candidate?
The diVa® procedure can help most women as they age, have children or go through other medical or life processes that damage vaginal tissues or interfere with hormone production.
