diVa® therapy FAQs
Questions about diVa®? Here is our quick list of diVa® therapy FAQs
diVa® laser therapy uses a Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) technology to vaginal tissue so that women regain their youthful, vital selves. Unfortunately, events like vaginal childbirth and menopause can cause decreased vaginal function. Chemotherapy and other hormonal changes can also lead to reduced vaginal health.
Women who have experienced vaginal childbirth or menopause are good candidates for diVa®. Women who have experienced chemotherapy or other hormonal changes may also be good candidates.
Based on your individual needs, we recommend anywhere from one to three procedures with diVa® therapy. We space sessions four to six weeks apart. After that, you can choose to have one treatment every 12 months for maintenance.
diVa® is quick. About three to five minutes is all you’ll need for each treatment. The HFL technology used in diVa® therapy is ergonomically designed. It has the ability to reach the full vaginal wall in these short treatment sessions with a second wavelength that treats simultaneously.
diVa® therapy is quick and ergonomically designed for a woman’s body, so there is minimal discomfort. Some women feel slight pressure against the vaginal wall and increased sensitivity near the vaginal opening.
There should be minimal spotting, discharge or discomfort during the 48 hours after the procedure. You should also abstain from sexual activity and taking baths during the first 48 hours following diVa® therapy.
diVa® therapy is an in-office procedure. It takes about three to five minutes for each treatment. No general anesthesia is necessary. We recommend a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort at the patient’s request.
