As a woman, vaginal health is incredibly important. However, as you age and change so does your vagina. A decline in vaginal health has a couple main factors- childbirth and menopause ( or reduced estrogen levels). If you experience vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence or pain during sexual intercourse, diVa may be the treatment for you.
What Is diVa?
With diVa, the usage of the world’s first and only revolutionary Hybrid Fractional Laser technology is used to resurface the layers of the vaginal wall. The vaginal wall tissues will then be replaced and resurfaced with new and healthy tissue. With the increased layers of glycogen filled cells and blood supply, patients will notice an increase in vaginal lubrication, reduced discomfort during intercourse and increased sensitivity. Deeper treatments of diVa can strengthen the pelvic floor muscles which can improve the symptoms of urinary incontinence.
Who Are Good Candidates for DiVa?
Anyone Who Has Given Childbirth
Giving birth tends to stretch out the vaginal canal and any surrounding tissue causing a weak pelvic floor. Sometimes the vaginal tissues may not return back to how they were before childbirth thus causing urinary incontinence. When one sneezes, coughs, or any other physical activity, this may cause unexpected and involuntary urine leakage.
Anyone with Reduced Estrogen Levels
When a woman goes through menopause (or other events such as a hysterectomy or chemotherapy), the estrogen levels tend to reduce which can result in thinning, inflammation and drying of the vaginal walls. This can cause some discomfort during sexual intercourse.
The diVa procedure requires a series of just 3 treatments which are spaced 3-4 weeks apart and are 5 minutes or less. The recovery is pain-free with no downtime except to abstain from intercourse for 48 hours.
The diVa treatment can be life changing for some women. If you’re thinking about getting the diVa treatment, it’s important to consult with your doctor to ensure the procedure is safe for you.
