diVa Vaginal Rejuvenation Laser
Although it is not something we often talk about, many women are dealing with vaginal health issues. Major life events such as childbearing and menopause often lead to laxity, incontinence, and other vaginal challenges, and things may simply not be as they once were.
Fortunately, cutting-edge vaginal rejuvenation treatment is available to women today. At Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery, we offer diVa laser vaginal rejuvenation therapy – a non-surgical, non-hormonal option to treat vaginal atrophy, laxity, and stress urinary incontinence, to help a women feel like her sensual, vital self again. If you are looking to go back to your tight, youthful self, visit the Criswell doctors for some of the best non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation Charlotte has to offer. However, if you have already tried non-invasive treatments and have not been able to meet your cosmetic goals, it may be time to look into a traditional, surgical vaginal rejuvenation for optimal results. Be sure to ask Dr. Criswell about weighing out these options and finding the one that is best suited for you and your body.
Why Women Need Vaginal Rejuvenation
Childbirth stretches the vaginal canal and the surrounding tissues. Although the tissues are repaired to some extent by the body’s own healing mechanisms, they may not return to their original state. The process of giving birth can damage the vaginal walls, the perineum, and the surrounding tissue to an extent that can lead to reduced vaginal health and diminished function.
Lower estrogen levels with menopause can lead to thinning of the vaginal walls, dryness, and inflammation. Hysterectomy, chemotherapy, or breast feeding may also lower estrogen levels. This can decrease healthy vaginal function for many women.
What is diVa Vaginal Rejuvenation Therapy?
diVa by Sciton uses superior hybrid laser fractional technology to treat common vaginal problems, with precision automation that produces consistent results with every treatment. Treatment can be customized to each individual patient’s needs.
diVa laser vaginal therapy is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for ablation (surgical removal) and coagulation (shrinking with heat) of soft vaginal tissue. It uses two laser treatments at once for combined, synergistic treatment. While the first laser resurfaces the vaginal wall, the second laser heats the lower tissue layer where collagen exists.
This laser feminine treatment is performed to increase elasticity and thickness of the vaginal wall, increase vaginal moisture, and improve low to mid-level stress urinary incontinence (leaking urine when you sneeze, cough, run, or jump). Patients report increased sexual satisfaction and feminine self-confidence restored after a series of diVa vaginal rejuvenation laser treatments.
diVa Laser Vaginal Therapy Technology
With state-of-the-art technology, diVa uses a hybrid fractional laser that provides varying levels of density and independent levels of ablation and coagulation. This allows our doctors to customize your treatment based on your vaginal issues and desired results. The accurate, motorized control system makes it possible to deliver consistent treatments for predictable results in less time. Treatments typically last only three to five minutes.
The diVa technology includes a Strengthened Quartz Dilator (SQD) – a quartz tip that expands and flattens the vaginal tissue and remains stationery to allow for uniform treatment. The disposable, single-use SQD reduces the risk of cross-contamination for greater patient safety.
This device is ergonomically designed for patient comfort and ease of use. High Precision Automation technology, using a unique guidance system in combination with a high accuracy motor, allows for treatment without manual positioning of the handpiece by the operator.
diVa Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedure
Topical anesthetic may be applied before the procedure to increase your comfort. Treatment is performed using the diVa vaginal rejuvenation laser, typically for just a few minutes, to fractionally resurface the length of the vaginal canal. During the procedure, you will experience slight pressure against the vaginal wall and minimal discomfort.
There is no downtime after a diVa vaginal laser treatment. You may resume your normal activities immediately. However, sexual intercourse should be avoided for 48 hours after the procedure.
We recommend 1 to 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. To maintain your results you may want to continue with a treatment every 6 months to 1 year.
Benefits of diVa Laser Vaginal Therapy
Using hybrid fractional laser technology, diVa laser vaginal therapy stimulates collagen re-growth and plumps up and tightens the vaginal tissues. Treatment can be customized based on specific patient concerns, such as stress urinary incontinence or vaginal laxity. This vaginal rejuvenation treatment option has a number of benefits:
- Requires only one to three treatments lasting three to five minutes
- Minimal discomfort
- Customizable to address your unique concerns
- No downtime – return to normal activities immediately
- Life-changing results for many patients
A woman’s vaginal health can affect her sensuality and self-confidence. Unfortunately, childbearing and the process of aging can take a toll on vaginal health and functionality. Many women experience vaginal looseness, dryness, thinning of the vaginal walls, difficult or painful intercourse, and urinary incontinence.
Thanks to advances in medical technology, women no longer need to undergo surgery or suffer in silence with vaginal concerns affecting their well-being and relationships. At Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery, we perform diVa laser vaginal therapy to rejuvenate vaginal tissues in one to three fast non-surgical treatments, with no anesthesia and no downtime.
