Realself 2019 Patients' Choice

As women age and experience childbirth or menopause, they experience problems with vaginal health. The stretching that occurs during childbirth can damage the vaginal walls and other surrounding tissues, affecting vaginal function and the sensations in intimacy. Menopause causes the ovaries to produce less estrogen, which can lead to dryness and thinning of the vaginal walls. Other medical procedures like hysterectomies or chemotherapy can also cause a reduction in estrogen levels, which is a key factor in vaginal health. Dr. Kara Criswell will help you understand your options when it comes to vaginal tightening to restore vaginal health.

Understanding Vaginal Health

The medical conditions leading to declining vaginal health are common, and in the case of childbirth, often an unexpected side effect. The negative side effects can be unexpected, including lower self-confidence, and lead to other issues in and out of the bedroom. Side effects can include:

  • Decreased vaginal tightness
  • Thinning of the vaginal walls
  • Inflammation of vaginal walls
  • Reduced sexual satisfaction
  • Relaxation of vaginal opening
  • Discomfort during Intercourse
  • Discomfort while walking or during intercourse
  • Dryness
  • Lower libido
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Discomfort while Walking
  • Difficulty Achieving orgasm

Women suffering from any of these side effects may feel embarrassed or less feminine, and sometimes women are surprised to find out that there are cosmetic procedures available to help restore the vaginal health and tightness lost due to age, childbirth, or other medical conditions. With diVa vaginal therapy, you can regain your self-confidence and vaginal health with non-surgical laser technology.

Improving Vaginal Health with diVa Laser Technology

For those who are ready to take back control of their vaginal health and restore a higher level of sexual satisfaction, laser therapy may be the answer. Approved by Health Canada, diVa by Sciton uses Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) Technology, which is the same technology used in our HaloPro facial rejuvenation laser. This state of the art laser gives the provider the freedom to customize the therapy based on each individual patient’s desired results.

After numbing gel is applied, the device is inserted into the vagina and treats the vaginal walls. The device stays stationary during the procedure. The entire laser procedure lasts about 3-5 minutes depending on the specific patient’s needs. Most patients report minimal to no discomfort.

Risks and Recovery for diVa

Patients may resume normal activities including sexual activity 24-48 hours after the procedure. Your clinician will guide you through the recovery process and will give you detailed postoperative care instructions.

diVa VS Mona Lisa Touch

DiVa® and the Mona Lisa Touch are two of the most popular choices for non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation. But which is better? DiVa or Mona Lisa Touch?

Deterioration in vaginal health, appearance or function can be the result of the natural process of aging, hormonal fluctuations and childbirth. Such deterioration can manifest as vaginal dryness that might make intercourse painful and increase the risk of infection, urinary incontinence, or vaginal atrophy from depleting estrogen. Combined, they’re uncomfortable, inconvenient and outright vexing. One of these conditions may at first appear alone, but it’s unfortunately often not long before all 3 come cascading down.

Treating vaginal dryness, vaginal atrophy and incontinence, DiVa tackles these three most pervasive problems at the same time. (In contrast, Mona Lisa Touch treats just one, vaginal atrophy. Important to treat, for sure, but it unfortunately doesn’t often come alone.) Using advanced proprietary technology and dual energy wavelengths, diVa is the most effective nonsurgical and noninvasive means of reversing these problems and restoring your vaginal health.

In addition to its superior customizable comfort features, diVa treatments last just 3 to 5 minutes, are spaced 4 - 6 weeks apart, and require minimal downtime or recovery.

At Criswell & Criswell, our experienced board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Kara Criswell, decided to make diVa our treatment of choice for non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation after studies of the latest science in the area and reviews of the most advanced technology the market had to offer.

PRP and diVa Vaginal Tightening

Women can experience changes in the vaginal area at various stages of life, including following the birth of a child, in perimenopause, aging, or other hormonal change. Both menopausal and post-menopausal women can experience significant changes in libido. Women who experience these side effects will be delighted to know that there are options available to restore natural lubrication, tissue strength and flexibility, and sensation.

Using PRP as an additional treatment with diVa offers a myriad of benefits. In additions to your diVa treatment, PRP can be injected into the vaginal tissue to trigger natural regeneration of the tissues and restore sexual sensitivity. The PRP to stimulate cell production for new vaginal tissue to be produced.

As PRP is created using your own blood, there is no risk of side effects with this added treatment. The full benefit of diVa vaginal tightening with PRP will become noticed in the weeks ahead, as the vaginal tissue regenerates. The entire PRP procedure is performed in our Charlotte, North Carolina office and can be completed in about one hour.

What is PRP?

Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, is a safe treatment that can be added to a diVa vaginal tightening procedure. The PRP triggers healing deep within the vaginal tissues for a more dramatic improvement. The procedure for obtaining PRP is simple, starting with a routine blood draw. Your blood is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the PRP, rich in proteins, nutrients, and growth factors that trigger cell growth and revitalization. This natural blood product is then injected into the tissue to trigger natural regeneration and healing.

Benefits of PRP and diVa Vaginal Tightening

  • More comfortable intercourse

Decreased libido and issues with intimacy can make women feel less feminine and experience less joy and sensation in intimate relations with her partner.
