Naples, FL Physician Answers FAQs About diVa® Laser Therapy
If your sexual and vaginal health has been compromised by vaginal childbirth, menopause, hysterectomy, hormonal fluctuations, or just aging in general, you may want to consider the benefits of diVa® laser therapy. This hybrid fractional laser technology helps restore vaginal health by resurfacing and strengthening vaginal walls.
As a treatment offered by Naples, Florida, internal medicine specialist Dr. Diane Brzezinski, D.O., diVa® laser therapy has helped alleviate numerous symptoms associated with a decline in vaginal health. Dr. B notes that along diVa® laser therapy helps improve the sexual health of many of her patients by:
- Thickening vaginal walls
- Reducing vaginal laxity
- Enhancing muscle tone
- Restoring vaginal sensation
- Reducing vaginal wall inflammation
- Increasing vaginal lubrication
diVa® laser therapy has also proven effective at helping reduce incontinence-related issues experienced by some of Dr. B’s patients.
Naturally, as a treatment that involves the more intimate aspects of a woman’s health, Dr. B’s patients typically have many questions about the procedure. We’ve compiled answers to FAQs about diVa® laser therapy here on this blog:
How Does diVa® work?
diVa® uses hybrid fractional laser technology to resurface the walls of the vaginal canal. The laser conditioning is delivered via a dilator-encased wand that slowly rotates within the canal while delivering pulsed energy on all surfaces. One pulsed laser resurfaces the tissue layers of the canal, which your body will replace with higher-quality tissue. A second laser heats tissues containing collagen, stimulating the production of more collagen for thicker, stronger vaginal walls. The laser energy’s strength can be customized to address each woman’s specific concerns and desired results.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
The diVa® laser therapy is quick and easy. After an initial consultation and examination, the procedure is typically performed in less than five minutes.
Will More than One Treatment be Needed?
While most women notice improvements in their vaginal health after just one treatment, clinical trials demonstrated optimal results by scheduling three diVa® treatment sessions four weeks apart during the first year. To maintain optimal vaginal health, doctors recommend an annual follow-up session.
What Does the diVa® Therapy Feel Like?
During clinical trials, women reported minimal discomfort and no adverse effects. A topical anesthetic is applied to ensure complete comfort, and women reported feeling slight pressure against the vaginal wall and an increase in sensitivity near the vaginal opening.
What Should Women Expect During the First 48 Hours After Treatment?
Women can resume normal daily activities immediately after their treatment, and most experience no discharge, spotting, or discomfort. Sexual intercourse and/or vaginal insertion of any kind should be avoided for at least 48 hours.
