What Is diVa Laser Vaginal Therapy?
Unleash Your Inner diVa™Women’s health is complex. The female anatomy has a lot of working parts that change as you naturally age and experience major life events like pregnancy and menopause. For years, the go-to solution to almost every issue involved hormonal therapy, but today, the go-to solution is different. There’s an effective and cost-efficient therapy that addresses changes in vaginal tissue related to natural aging, post-pregnancy tissue damage, and menopause symptoms. It’s called diVa laser vaginal therapy, and it can help you unleash your “inner diVa” through effective therapy for medical conditions.
Your Health, Your LifePain, discomfort, and embarrassment change a person, causing them to be crabby or depressed and negatively impacting their desire to do the things they enjoy. Good health contributes to a good life. As a woman, vaginal health is part of your life. When it suffers, you suffer. Your most intimate of relationships can be negatively affected, and you may find yourself feeling less confident both in and out of the bedroom. As you age, your body experiences changes that can impact the vagina. It’s normal, and you are far from alone.
- Roughly 53 million American women are currently experiencing menopause, and many of them are coping with a dry and irritated feeling in the vaginal area.
- In 2015, 2.7 million vaginal deliveries were recorded, and many of the women who gave birth faced vaginal laxity or stress urinary incontinence afterward.
Addressing Intimacy and IncontinenceVaginal health impacts sexual activity. It can be negatively or positively affected by hormonal changes and child birth. Thousands of women are searching for effective solutions to symptoms that include:
- Painful sex
- Painful penetration
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal burning or itching
- Urinary leakage (stress incontinence)
The diVa Solution to Painful SexWhy is sex painful? It’s supposed to be pleasurable, right? But for some reason, it’s just not for you. Maybe it hasn’t always been painful or maybe it has. Why? For many women, painful penetration and/or painful sex is caused by a vaginal health issue. It could be due to illness, infection, or a physical problem. Sex can become painful after pregnancy due to childbirth and the hormonal changes your body has weathered. Vaginal dryness resulting in burning, itching, or lack of lubrication is common. Your doctor can help you determine the cause of painful sex, and if it is related to the vaginal tissue, diVa therapy may be for you. It can treat:
- Painful intercourse
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal burning
The Impact of Menopause SymptomsMenopause is the ceasing of menstruation. For most women, it occurs between the ages of 45 and 55, but for some, it arrives earlier. The age at which a woman enters menopause is thought to be genetically determined, but it can be triggered by external stimulants like chemotherapy or a hysterectomy during which the uterus is removed. Menopause is one of the most dynamic changes the female anatomy goes through. Some of the most common symptoms include weight gain, hot flashes, and vaginal dryness. Traditionally, these symptoms have been addressed through hormone-focused treatments. For breast cancer survivors and other estrogen-sensitive cancer survivors, traditional hormone therapy isn’t an option. Now, there is a solution. diVa is a non-surgical, non-hormonal therapy designed to address vaginal dryness and stress urinary incontinence. It can help improve some vaginal symptoms of menopause.
Be a diVaHow does the diVa therapy work, and what can you expect? The total treatment time is roughly 45 minutes – a 15 minute procedure following 30 minutes of numbing with a topical anesthetic. While diVa itself does not require an anesthetic, we find it offers patients an added level of comfort and decreases stress. You don’t need to fret over downtime after a diVa session. You’ll be able to resume your normal daily activities, but patients should not introduce anything to the vagina for the first 48 hours following the procedure. The therapy itself is recommended in a series of three treatments spaced four weeks apart with one annual treatment to maintain optimum results. The diVa laser is manufactured by Sciton. It’s a revolutionary piece of technology and currently the only vaginal tissue rejuvenation laser capable of addressing both vaginal secretions and laxity. The laser operates on a precision guidance system, eliminating reliance on manual positioning. It’s also highly customizable, allowing practitioners to adapt the therapy based on your age, personal symptoms, and desired results.
