diVa Sarasota

diVa™ is the world’s first and only Hybrid Fractional Laser to treat vaginal tissue and help women feel more like their younger, vitalized selves. diVa™ is a quick, comfortable, no downtime solution to a woman’s most intimate issues and concerns. Women, particularly those that have given birth, have gone through menopause, or both, may experience some undesirable changes in their vaginal health over time. These changes are caused by things like stretching of the vaginal canal and its surrounding tissue during childbirth , and damage, dryness, and inflammation of the vaginal walls during and after menopause. These issues can affect a woman’s overall comfort, as well as their confidence and self-esteem. The results of diVa™ include increases in the thickness and elasticity of the vaginal wall, an increase in vaginal moisture, and an increase in sexual satisfaction. The diVa™ can also improve low to mid-levels of Urinary Stress Incontinence, which affects millions of women, especially when they run, exercise, cough, or sneeze. Unlike other vaginal rejuvenation treatments, diVa™ takes only 3-5 minutes to fractionally resurface the entire vaginal wall, making the pressure against it very tolerable. The heat produced by the laser is meant to achieve results quickly and effectively, so the treatment is not painful. This type of laser resurfacing also allows the provider to customize the treatment to each individual patient, both in regards to resurfacing the layers of the walls and to rebuilding new, healthy, tightened tissue.

If you have ever heard of vaginal rejuvenation, you may have some questions about what exactly it is, why it’s done, and what happens during the actual procedure. The very idea can be a strange thing to consider for many woman, but if you are suffering from a lack of intimacy or experiencing less than optimal vaginal health, diVa™laser vaginal therapy may actually be precisely what you have been looking for.

Two major events in a woman’s life can lead to decline in vaginal health:

Childbirth stretches the vaginal canal and surrounding tissue. The vagina can mostly be repaired by the body’s own healing response. With many women, however, the tissue may not return to the same state as before childbirth. This stretching damages the vaginal walls, perineum, and surrounding tissues, which often leads to diminished vaginal health and function.

Menopause and other events such as a hysterectomy, chemotherapy, or the process of breast-feeding, may lead to reduced estrogen production by the ovaries and may often lead to thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls. For many women this may decrease healthy vaginal function.

diVa™ laser vaginal therapy delivers two laser therapies at once for a combined benefit. The first layer treats deep into the vaginal wall causing brand new healthy tissue. The second laser heats the more superficial layers where collagen exists. By causing brand new health tissue and new collagen, your results include increased sensitivity, increased natural lubrication, increased vaginal tightening and decreased urinary incontinence.

diVa™ is a quick, comfortable, no downtime solution to a woman’s most intimate challenges. Every woman is unique and so are her needs. diVa™ utilizes the worlds first and only revolutionary Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) technology which allows customization of your treatment to meet your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is an ideal candidate for diVa™?

Woman that have had children or are experiencing menopause as well as other events such as hysterectomy, chemotherapy or the process of breast-feeding may be interested in a resurfacing treatment to improve the quality of their vaginal tissue.

How long does the procedure take?

Each treatment takes 3-5 minutes to fractionally resurface the full length of a vaginal canal

How many treatments are recommended?

The number of treatments may vary depending on the specific needs of the woman. Generally between 1 and 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart are recommended, 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. The treatment is fast with minimal discomfort. Some patients may experience increased sensitivity near the vaginal opening.

Is sedation necessary?

No. A topical anesthetic is placed externally and into the vaginal canal 20-30 min prior to the treatment.

What do patients experience in the 48 hours following the treatment?

Patients may return to their daily routine with minimal to no discharge, spotting, or discomfort. However, they should avoid sexual intercourse for 48 hours.

Is there a disposable?

Yes. A single use quartz dilator not only expands the vaginal tissue to provide greater treatment area but also eliminates the risk of cross contamination.

O- Shot

The O-Shot uses a clinically proven technique called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy to rejuvenate vaginal tissues and enhance sexual pleasure. PRP is a portion of your blood that contains growth factors. Your own blood is drawn and the platelets and growth factors are separated to create the PRP. The PRP is then injected into the vaginal tissue and clitoral area after the area is treated with a topical anesthetic. The platelets then activate your body’s stem cells which multiply and grow new, younger tissue.

You may experience the following benefits from the O shot:

  • Greater arousal
  • Younger, smoother skin of the vulva
  • A tighter introitus (vaginal opening)
  • Stronger orgasm
  • More Frequent orgasm
  • Increased Sexual Desire
  • Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
  • Decreased pain for those with dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
  • Increased natural lubrication
  • Decreased urinary incontinence
