WHY DO WOMEN SEEK NON-SURGICAL VAGINAL REJUVENATION?

Just like our skin, a woman’s vagina changes as we age. When we are young, the vaginal canal is thick, elastic, tight and lubricated. As a woman ages, especially after the vaginal trauma of childbirth and as she enters and experiences menopause, the vagina may atrophy, thin out, and lose vital moisture. As a result, she may experience intense vaginal dryness, which leads to painful intercourse and urinary incontinence due to loss of structure and support.

Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation, although still considered cosmetic, can address some of the negative changes a woman may experience to her intimate health and function after childbirth, hysterectomy, menopause, hormone imbalance, and even from the effects of some cancer treatments. Many of these conditions cause a decline or complete loss of estrogen production, which can thin the vaginal walls. As a result, a woman may experience loss of elasticity in the vagina and dryness, which can cause significant physical and emotional discomfort during intimacy and even sexual dysfunction. She may also experience urinary incontinence or leaky bladder due to loss of support and elasticity in the vagina, especially during exercise or when coughing or sneezing. Vaginal rejuvenation laser treatments, like diVa®, can dramatically improve and even reverse many of these symptoms!

WHAT IS DIVA® LASER VAGINAL THERAPY?

diVa® is a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment that utilizes the world’s first and only revolutionary Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) technology by Sciton®. HFL technology allows your Skin Artisans provider to customize your treatment to address your exact intimate challenges. diVa® delivers two laser therapies at once to the tissues of the vaginal canal for a combined synergistic effect. The first laser deeply resurfaces the layers of the vaginal wall, immediately replacing it with brand-new, healthy tissue. The second laser heats the deeper layers of the tissue to stimulate collagen production and restore thickness and support to the vaginal canal over time. In essence, diVa® uses advanced laser technology to rejuvenate and tighten the vaginal tissues, leading to improvement in the symptoms of vaginal laxity, dryness, and urinary incontinence.

HOW DOES DIVA® LASER VAGINAL THERAPY WORK?

diVa® works by delivering laser energy directly to the vaginal tissues via a specially designed handpiece that is inserted into the vagina. The fractional resurfacing delivered during the quick 5-10 minute treatment creates micro-injuries that stimulate healing and collagen production to promote the growth of new, thick, elastic, and healthy tissue. This process can help improve the strength, elasticity, and thickness of the vaginal walls and enhance vaginal lubrication over time by enhancing blood flow within the tissues of the vagina.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DIVA® LASER VAGINAL THERAPY?

The benefits of diVa® for overall vaginal health and function are bountiful! With each treatment, the tissue layers of the vaginal canal will become more vital and youthful. Vaginal dryness and discomfort will be improved. The effects of leaky bladder and urinary incontinence will be reduced.

Other benefits of diVa® Laser Vaginal Therapy may include:

  • Improvement in vaginal tightness and elasticity
  • Reduced vaginal dryness and itching
  • Increased sexual satisfaction
  • Decreased urgency to urinate
  • Reduction in leaky bladder
  • Increased circulation in vaginal tissues
  • A treatment with minimal to mild discomfort
  • No adverse side effects
  • 92% of patients report that expectations were met, if not exceeded!
  • Improved intimate confidence!

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR DIVA® LASER VAGINAL THERAPY?

diVa® is an excellent option for women experiencing the symptoms of vaginal laxity, dryness, and urinary incontinence who are also looking for a non-surgical treatment option.

You may also be a good candidate for diVa® Laser Vaginal Therapy if you can answer YES to any of the following:

  • Are you constantly scoping out the nearest restroom wherever you go?
  • Are you unable to sit through an entire movie without escaping to the restroom?
  • Do you wear pads or panty liners due to bladder leakage or accidents?
  • Have you experienced vaginal dryness accompanied by irritation and itching?
  • Is intercourse painful for you due to vaginal dryness?

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A DIVA® LASER VAGINAL THERAPY TREATMENT?

When you arrive for your diVa® treatment at Skin Artisans, you will be shown to your private treatment room. A topical numbing cream will be applied to the inside of your vagina for 15-20 minutes to ease any discomfort during your treatment and removed immediately before your session begins.

During your diVa® treatment, your provider will adjust the laser energy they use to cater to your unique needs and concerns. The diVa® handpiece will be fitted with a sterile, single-use dilator and then inserted into the vagina. As laser energy is emitted, the handpiece will be rotated within the dilator to target 360 degrees of the vaginal walls. Your provider will focus their passes of the laser to address specific areas of the vagina. For example, the first pass may target the anterior wall of the vagina to enhance tightening around the urethra and improve incontinence. The second pass may then cover the entire vaginal canal to improve natural lubrication and laxity. diVa® is a highly customized treatment tailored to your exact intimate needs and concerns.

Your diVa® treatment will take about 45 minutes with numbing. The actual procedure only takes about 5-10 minutes.

WHAT DOES DIVA® LASER VAGINAL THERAPY FEEL LIKE?

There is very little discomfort experienced with diVa®. Most women only report feeling a slight pressure during the insertion and rotation of the handpiece within the vagina.

IS THERE DOWNTIME WITH DIVA® LASER VAGINAL THERAPY?

diVa® has little to no downtime. After your treatment, you may experience some mild discomfort and pressure, but this will subside within 24-48 hours. Although you may return to your daily activities immediately following diVa®, your provider will advise you to abstain from sexual intercourse for 2-3 days following treatment as tissues heal. Using bathtubs, swimming pools, and hot tubs is also discouraged for the first 48 hours following your treatment.

Although uncommon, some women may experience spotting, cramping, and a slight sunburn sensation for 24-48 hours following diVa®.

ARE THERE BENEFITS TO ADDING PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP) TO MY DIVA® LASER VAGINAL THERAPY TREATMENT?

YES! Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), or the O-Shot®, is highly beneficial to add to your diVa® treatment and can be performed immediately following your laser session. PRP, collected from your own blood before treatment, contains hundreds of proteins called growth factors that accelerate tissue repair, stimulate collagen production, and quicken healing. When PRP is combined with diVa®, tissues heal faster; collagen production is enhanced, which creates thicker vaginal walls, and new circulatory pathways are formed over time, which improves blood flow to the vagina.

HOW MANY DIVA® LASER VAGINAL THERAPY TREATMENT WILL I NEED?

Although most women experience improvements after their first diVa® treatment, three treatments spaced four weeks apart are recommended for optimal results. After, one treatment each year is recommended to maintain your results.
