It’s no secret that our bodies go through changes as we age. For women, our bodies experience the effects of aging in many different areas and we address most of these – we add a retinol to our skincare routine, we do preventive Botox®, we get our bodies lifted, tucked, and sculpted. But what about the INSIDE of our bodies?
Over time, women experience many vaginal issues that are not only completely normal, but also extremely common. Our vaginal health can be affected by childbirth, breastfeeding, menopause, weight fluctuations, and natural aging.
Some effects include:
- Thinning or inflammation of the vaginal walls
- Stress incontinence and urinary leakage
- Discomfort during intercourse
- Loss of sensation or decreased sexual desire
These issues affect our overall well-being and daily life, but they don’t have to. We get facials and other treatments to rejuvenate our bodies on the outside – now we can extend the same care to the inside of our bodies through diVa® Laser Vaginal Therapy!
What does a diVa® treatment look like?
diVa® Laser Vaginal Therapy addresses common vaginal issues non-surgically with a laser treatment. The device uses Hybrid Laser Technology to treat the vaginal tissue in two ways:
- The first laser deeply resurfaces the vaginal walls to create brand new, healthy tissue.
- The second laser uses heat to stimulate growth of collagen, which tightens the tissue.
The deep resurfacing of the vaginal walls aids in the formation of new blood vessels, which brings more oxygen and nutrients to the skin. This can help improve natural lubrication, inflammation of the vaginal walls, pH, and overall vaginal health. Growth of collagen increases the tissue’s elasticity, strengthening the tissue. For women who have had children, or who have experienced issues with their pelvic floor, laser therapy can be very beneficial in addressing issues with skin laxity.
The diVa® treatment is quick, usually only taking about 10 minutes from start to finish. Patients may experience a little discharge or light bleeding after treatment. In case of this, we provide each patient with a pad before leaving the appointment.
There is No Down-Time Associated with the Treatment
Patients are free to return to daily life with little to no spotting, discharge, or discomfort. Most patients require 2-3 treatments 6 weeks apart, depending on their goals.
Why Capizzi MD?
One great thing about choosing to have your diVa® treatment at Capizzi MD is that it is a quick and easy in-office appointment, or you can choose to add it on to other procedures we offer. The most popular treatment plan patients choose to add diVa® onto is a Mommy Makeover, which is a customizable combination of procedures designed to help women look and feel their best. A growing number of our patients choose to combine diVa® with a labiaplasty – a procedure that alters the folds of skin around the vulva to completely reinvigorate both look and feel.
Comfort is one of our top priorities, so you can relax knowing you’ll be in great hands. One of our female nurses will perform the diVa® treatment, creating the most comfortable environment for this intimate procedure.
Our main goal is to help you making life-changing improvements to your vaginal health and confidence – it’s a bonus that we can do so in as little as 10 minutes! If the diVa® treatment is something that interests you, we would love to help you get started. Reach out to our administrative team either online or by phone to get scheduled for a complimentary consultation. We are so excited to help you on your journey to improved vaginal health!
