Frequently Asked Questions
What is diVa?
diVa is a popular in-office procedure that uses laser technology for gynecological health.
What would I experience during diVa?
diVa requires a disposable dilator (strengthened quartz dilator) that remains stationary during the procedure. This thoughtful design allows for comfort while delivering diVa’s automated rotation within the dilator. It is a well-tolerated 3-5 minute procedure. Patients will experience a slight pressure sensation. A topical anesthetic is used to ensure comfort.
What can I expect in the first 48 hours following diVa?
Patients may return to their daily routine with minimal discharge, spotting, or discomfort: however, depending on your customized treatment, your practitioner may recommend a personalized post-treatment regimen and include avoiding sexual intercourse or tampon use for a longer period of time.
A comfortable, no downtime, non-ablative approach improving the appearance of non-firm vulvar skin
What is diVaTyte™?
diVaTyte™ is a comfortable, no downtime, non-ablative BroadBand Light (BBL™) treatment for laxity of vulvar skin. The non-ablative treatment uses selected wavelengths of light that gently heat dermal tissue to obtain 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.
How does diVaTyte work?
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.
If needed, diVa™ Laser Vaginal Therapy and diVaTyte™ may be performed together optimizing both internal and external vaginal tissues to provide a total women’s wellness solution.
