Laser Vaginal Therapy
Vaginal therapy with the diVa laser is a non-surgical procedure that helps to restore vaginal tissue and natural lubrication without creams or synthetic hormones.
This innovative treatment tightens vaginal tissue, restores healthy lubrication and can reduce stress urinary stress incontinence.
diVa Laser Treats Vaginal Dryness
Lack of lubrication causes intercourse to be painful and eventually results in diminished sexual desire. Vaginal dryness affects one in three women during the onset and aftermath of menopause. The lack of lubrication is a contributing factor to painful intercourse.
When a woman’s estrogen declines, it can lead to vaginal atrophy – drying and irritation that cause pain during intercourse. These issues can cause problems for women’s intimate relationships.
Women of any age can benefit from diVa therapy. Just giving birth can stretch vaginal muscles or cause urine to leak when a woman sneezes or coughs. diVa laser therapy can help with both.
The diVa laser treatment is the newest evolution of laser vaginal therapy built on years of experience. diVa delivers two types of energy to aid in resurfacing the vaginal skin while also stimulating the re-growth of new collagen, blood vessels, and nerve endings below the surface of the vaginal walls.
The deeper layer is responsible for the dynamic elastic nature of the vagina, the lubricating, secreting capability of the vaginal skin, and the sensitivity of the vaginal canal. Restoring this deeper vaginal layer creates a significant change to dry, lax, painful tissue with long term results.
The treatment is quick and we can target specific regions to improve stress urinary incontinence or other localized issues – as well as the broader benefits in addressing dyspareunia or vaginal atrophy.

The diVa Laser Treatment Procedure
The laser treatment is accomplished by inserting a laser handpiece into the vagina that is pre-programmed to generate as series of tiny pinpricks on the vaginal walls. You won’t feel a thing, but those miniscule holes provoke a natural response in the body, growing collagen and increasing blood flow.
The collagen growth will help strengthen and thickens walls in the vaginal canal. This also helps to provide better support to the bladder and urethra, minimizing the accidents that occur from stress incontinence.
The increased blood flow typically improves vaginal sensation during intercourse and relieves discomfort associated with vaginal dryness.
The doctor can target specific areas to improve stress incontinence or help tighten vaginal muscles stretched from child birth, surgery or injury.
diVA laser therapy is a welcome alternative for women who want to restore healthy sexual function without the risk of hormone-based treatments.

The diVa treatment offers relief for women with vaginal symptoms from childbirth on up to menopause. The procedure helps stress incontinence, stretched vaginal muscles, difficulty with orgasm and painful intercourse.
Any woman age 25 and up and can have the procedure (expect during pregnancy.) Vaginal stimulation therapy with diVa laser is simple, safe and fast. The treatment takes about five minutes.
The doctor uses a single-use quartz dilator to open the vaginal canal and positions the diVa device. The device rotates to target specific regions with the laser. The diVa laser device is pre-programmed and computerized for accuracy and precision.
Once the treatment protocol is accomplished, the device is removed and the quartz dilator thrown away.
During the therapy, patients may feel slight pressure against the vaginal wall while the device is in place. Some women experience a little sensitivity near the vaginal opening, but typically discomfort is minimal.
Women should avoid sexual intercourse or any vaginal insertions, such as a tampon, for 48 hours after treatment. Otherwise you can resume normal activities at work or at home when you leave the clinic.
