The diVa Treatment
As woman age, they can experience a decline in vaginal and sexual health. This decline is typically caused by two major events: Childbirth and Reduced Estrogen Levels.
Childbirth stretches the vaginal canal and surrounding tissues. The body’s own healing process takes effect to repair most of the effects of childbirth, though the tissue might not return to the same state as prior to childbirth. The vaginal walls, perineum, and surrounding tissues can be damaged due to the stretching, which can lead to vaginal health and function decline.
Menopause can lead to reduced estrogen production by the ovaries. This can lead to drying, thinning and inflammation of the vaginal walls, which might decrease healthy vaginal function for women. Chemotherapy, breastfeeding, and a hysterectomy can also have similar effects.
diVa is changing women’s lives for the better.
diVa is the latest innovation developed by Sciton to help women feel more like their younger vital, sensual selves. The diVa works by delivering both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone to support coagulation to the vaginal mucosa. To put it simply, it helps to repair vaginal tissue.
The diVa supports vaginal rejuvenation and overall sexual health by strengthening the vaginal muscles and can also help to treat urinary incontinence by strengthening the muscles around the urethra.
Innovative and safe technology from Sciton.
The diVa laser is the only device available that includes High Precision Automation (HPA). HPA technology ensures the safest and best treatment outcome for patients. HPA allows the operator to customize treatments based on a patient’s age, symptoms, and desired results.
Who is an ideal candidate for the treatment?
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 patient comfort and ease of use. Each treatment takes 3 to 5 minutes to fractionally resurface the full length of a vaginal canal.
How many treatments are recommended?
Patients may choose between 1 and 3 procedures spaced every 4 weeks apart, followed by 1 treatment every 6 – 12 months.
What do patients experience during the treatment?
Patients will experience a slight pressure against the vaginal wall during laser resurfacing. The treatment is fast with minimal discomfort. Some patients may experience increased sensitivity near the vaginal opening.
What do patients experience in the 48 hours following treatment?
Patients may return to their daily routine with minimal to no discharge, spotting, or discomfort; however, they should avoid sexual intercourse for up to 48 hours.
Is there a disposable?
Yes, the single-use SQD not only expands the vaginal tissue to provide greater treatment area but also eliminates the time it would take to clean the handpiece between treatments.
Is sedation necessary?
No, the laser resurfacing treatment is fast, easy and completed in an outpatient setting. Topical anesthetic may be applied to increase patient comfort but is not necessary.
