Who is an ideal candidate for diVa?
Women that have had children or are experiencing menopause may be interested in a resurfacing treatment to improve the quality of their vaginal tissue.
How long does a procedure take?
diVa’s ergonomic design allows for comfortable, fast and easy treatments. Each procedure takes 3 to 5 minutes to treat the full length of a vaginal canal.
How many treatments are recommended?
You and your clinician may choose between one and three procedures spaced every 4 to 6 weeks apart, followed by one treatment every 12 months.
What do patients experience during the treatment?
You may experience a slight pressure against the vaginal wall during the diVa treatment, and some patients may experience increased sensitivity near the vaginal opening. diVa laser therapy is fast with minimal discomfort.
What do patients experience in the next 48 hours after treatment?
You may return to your daily routine with minimal to no discharge, spotting, or discomfort; however, you should avoid sexual intercourse for up to 48 hours.
Is anesthesia necessary?
No, diVa is an in-office treatment. Topical anesthetic may be applied to increase your comfort but is not necessary.
What should I expect during the treatment?
diVaTyte energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid pulses to gently warm the vaginal skin. The treatment is performed in a motion technique similar to getting a massage. Treatment time is typically within 10-20 minutes in order to ensure the sensation of warmth is uniform throughout the skin.
What should I expect immediately after the treatment?
The warming sensation subsides almost immediately. You may experience some mild redness in the treatment area. A return to your normal skin color may occur as soon as a few minutes to approximately one hour. Sometimes, the skin swells slightly as the water in the tissue is heated. This is normal and is referred to as “happy edema” as it is a sign that the tissue is responding.
Is there any post-treatment care?
Since this is a non-invasive treatment, you may resume regular activities following the treatment. This can include bathing, swimming, and sexual activity. Your practitioner will guide you if a particular activity should be avoided in your situation.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments may vary from patient to patient as well as the recommendation by your practitioner. A treatment assessment plan can be personalized for the level of improvement you desire. A typical plan is 3 to 5 treatment sessions based 2 to 3 weeks apart.
What results should I expect?
diVaTyte results may vary from patient to patient. The diVaTyte treatment is recommended for patients who desire mild to moderate noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Your practitioner can consult with you on your level of improvement and goals. Full results of improved skin firming and reduced sagging skin are built around the body’s tissue remodeling process which can take up to 4 months for the foundation to be strengthened.
