Events such as childbirth and menopause are natural parts of women’s lives, but they can lead to ongoing symptoms no woman wants. We’re talking about vaginal dryness. And painful sex. And bladder leakage. These are not merely annoying but inevitable results of living your life, they are important vaginal health issues. diVa laser vaginal therapy can address all of them by restoring vaginal health.
diVa laser vaginal therapy is a minimally-invasive, non-hormonal resurfacing treatment designed exclusively to improve vaginal health. We do not use this treatment option anywhere else on the body. diVa is safe and highly effective for any woman who wants to get rid of residual effects of childbirth, menopause, breast or ovarian cancer treatment, or a hysterectomy that included removing the ovaries.
All of these occurrences have something in common. They all cause the body to stop or greatly reduce natural estrogen production. Unfortunately, it’s estrogen that helps keep a woman’s “lady parts” in good working order. Without estrogen, vaginal tissue becomes dry and thinner, the vaginal canal loses lubrication and its pH level becomes more alkaline. All too often, that can lead to:
- Burning or itching in the vaginal area
- Vaginal dryness
- Excess discharge
- Loss of sexual sensation due to tissue thinning
- Painful intercourse due to insufficient lubrication
- Urinary stress incontinence (frequent or urgent urination and/or bladder leakage caused by laughing, coughing, etc.)
These symptoms can range from frustrating to debilitating. They can diminish overall quality of life, dampen self-confidence, and damage intimate relationships. Whether you are experiencing all of the symptoms noted above or just one or two, diVa laser vaginal therapy lets you take your life back. The treatment not only works to restore vaginal health going forward, but it can also effectively reverse your unwanted symptoms.
diVa laser treatments are performed in-office by one of our experienced aestheticians, following your personal consultation with Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez. The treatment takes only about 5 minutes. It is not painful, nor is there any downtime required afterward, although some patients feel a bit sensitive in the vaginal area. We recommend all of our patients avoid intercourse for 48 hours.
Unlike other laser-based vaginal treatment options, diVa uses a dual profractional technology that simultaneously treats surface and deeper skin tissue, to produce more comprehensive results. The treatment stimulates natural production of healthier, more elastic tissue, restoring hydration, vaginal lubrication, and increased sexual sensation.
It takes three treatment sessions to achieve optimal results, and we usually schedule them 4-6 weeks apart. After that, an annual maintenance is all most women need to maintain their vaginal health and a more comfortable, enjoyable daily life.
We Love diVa, and We Think You Will, Too
diVa laser vaginal therapy can provide multiple benefits, but Dr. Hernandez says she has been most impressed that patients experience good results as soon as 3 days post-treatment. And our patients themselves? Dr. Hernandez reports the women especially notice they no longer suffer from incontinence, adding “husbands are loving the results, too!”
