A non-ablative treatment using selected wavelengths of light penetrating deep into tissue. Specially designed sapphire quartz delivers therapeutic light through the Broadband Light (BBL™) handpiece by gently massaging the exterior vaginal skin heating the dermal layer. Clinical results include a more pleasing appearance and a feeling of increased tightness and tone.
Pregnancy and motherhood have tremendous rewards; however, vaginal childbirth excessively stretches the muscles and skin of the vagina. The body’s natural healing process repairs much of the damage, but tissue may not return to its previous state, especially after multiple pregnancies. Eventually, many women feel their labial skin has lost some of its youthful smoothness and elasticity, known as vulvar laxity.
Vulvar skin laxity affects women of all ages. As women naturally age, complaints of sagging skin and other skin quality changes are in all areas of the body, not just in faces and necks. This condition is amongst the highest complaints for women, typically affecting their sexual relationships and positive feelings of well-being.
diVaTyte can help women take charge of their bodies and feel sensual, confident and physically pleasing in all areas.
diVaTyte is based on SkinTyte™, the same non-ablative technology used typically on the face, neck, and abdomen. diVaTyte utilizes powerful comfortable contact cooling to protect the top layer of skin while permitting safe infrared energy to heat deeper layers of tissue where collagen and elastin reside. By raising the tissue temperature, the body naturally initiates a repair and remodeling response, which over time, leads to the appearance of firmer skin and improved tone.
Women that have had children or are experiencing menopause may be interested in a resurfacing treatment to improve the quality of their vaginal tissue.
diVa laser therapy addresses a variety of concerns including:
diVa’s ergonomic design allows for comfortable, fast and easy treatments. Each procedure takes 3 to 5 minutes to treat the full length of a vaginal canal. Please allow approximately 30 to 45 minutes for your appointment for check-in, set-up, application of the topical anesthetic prior to the diVa treatment, and check-out/post-procedure discharge instruction.
Three laser treatments are given every 4 to 6 weeks, followed by one maintenance treatment every 12 months.
You may experience a slight pressure against the vaginal wall during the diVa treatment, and some patients may experience increased sensitivity near the vaginal opening. diVa laser therapy is fast with minimal discomfort.
You may return to your daily routine with minimal to no discharge, spotting, or discomfort; however, you should avoid sexual intercourse for up to 48 hours.
No, diVa is performed as in-office procedure. A topical anesthetic may be applied to increase your comfort but is not necessary.
diVa utilizes the world’s first and only revolutionary Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) technology. diVa delivers two laser therapies at once for a combined effect. The first laser deeply resurfaces the layers of the vaginal wall, replacing it with brand new, healthy tissue. The second laser heats the layers of the tissue where collagen exists. Unlike other laser therapies that only penetrate the top layer of tissue, the depth of the heat generated by the HFL technology penetrates through multiple layers of the vaginal tissue to stimulate healthier tissue, increase collagen, and improve tissue density and elasticity.
The sensation described by women who have undergone diVa and diVaTyte is that it feels warm but not painful. A topical numbing cream will be placed in the vagina to help reduce any discomfort. Sedation or general anesthesia is not needed as the procedure is very well tolerated in the office.
Unlike other laser therapies, the diVa/diVaTyte hybrid laser technology allows for individual customization for your exact needs according to age, symptoms, the shape/size of your vagina and the degree of atrophy. Some of the other lasers only improve the top layer of tissue but the diVa/diVaTyte laser works on both the top layer and deeper into the collagen layer, promoting improved health of the vaginal tissue and increased strength and elasticity of the tissue. With the other laser types, it may appear less costly but you may need additional treatments as it does not penetrate to the deeper tissues.
In addition, with the diVa laser, a disposable dilator is used to cover the laser to ensure utmost hygiene and no chance of cross-contamination. The laser also remains stationary in the vagina during the entire treatment; the other lasers are manually turned during treatment. Because the diVa laser is fully automated, it results in the most precise laser treatment of the vaginal tissue. With diVa, there is less risk of complications due to the customization and precision of the hybrid laser.
Yes. Both treatments can be done on the same day. Plan on being in the office for 1 hour.
Surgical vaginal rejuvenation is a more invasive option for cases of severe vaginal laxity, and defects from prior childbirth trauma/episiotomy scars/tears during childbirth.
Surgery is performed under general anesthesia, it takes about two hours to perform. Afterward, at-home rest and recovery with exercise restrictions are necessary. Surgery is a good option for patients simultaneously needing sling placement for stress urinary incontinence. Surgery is also a good option for severe laxity.
Laser vaginal therapy is a minimally invasive, office-based procedure with little recovery and downtime. It is the only option to improve lubrication and vaginal mucosa tissue, and good for mild to moderate vaginal laxity.
