diVa® Vaginal Rejuvenation in Tampa, FL

As a woman ages or after childbirth, the vagina loses its tone and firmness. Vaginal rejuvenation is a simple and safe procedure that can tighten the opening and walls of the vagina to help increase strength and control of vaginal muscles, enhance enjoyment during intimacy and improve self-confidence. 

With advances in laser treatments such as the diVa™ system, this type of treatment is becoming increasingly accessible for women interested in restoring their pre-pregnancy body functionality.

What is diVa™ Vaginal Rejuvenation by Sciton?

The diVa™ vaginal rejuvenation system is a breakthrough laser procedure designed to restore vitality, improve firmness and increase strength and control of vaginal muscles. diVa™ utilizes the world’s first and only Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) technology which combines two different types of lasers. The first laser resurfaces the layers of the vaginal wall which triggers a natural healing response from your body to replace it with new, healthy tissue. The second laser heats deep layers of the vagina to stimulate collagen production and increase tightness. The diVa™ system’s cutting edge new technology is a breakthrough because it allows our providers to customize each treatment to the patient’s specific needs. 

How does diVa™ work?

diVa™ is a pioneering vaginal rejuvenation procedure that fuses trusted laser technology with advanced fractional lasers to produce powerful rejuvenating effects. The two synchronized lasers seamlessly work together to resurface and tighten the vagina. 

Before the procedure, one of the team members at Health + Glow will apply a topical numbing cream to the treated area. The diVa™ procedure lasts 7-minutes on average and most patients experience only minor discomfort. Patients can return to their daily routine with minimal to no discharge, spotting, or discomfort. However, patients should avoid sexual intercourse for 7-10 days.

The results of diVa™ Vaginal Rejuvenation

The diVa™ laser can treat a wide variety of vaginal concerns including:

  • Improved vaginal tightness
  • Improved vaginal dryness and itching
  • Increased sexual satisfaction
  • Reduced symptoms of urinary incontinence
  • And more

By stimulating large amounts of new elastin and collagen in the vagina, diVa™ creates long lasting results for patients. The diVa™ laser has been proven to enhance moisture levels while reducing discomfort during sexual intercourse without relying on any hormones – making it an excellent choice even among patients who have had breast cancer or other estrogen dependent tumors.

Reduced Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)

Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), is the involuntary loss of urine caused by physical activity, coughing and sneezing.

The diVa laser therapy procedure has demonstrated improvement. The mechanism of action of the laser induces an increase in the vaginal mucosa or specifically the epithelial layer thickness of the vaginal wall tissue as well as an increase in collagen in the lamina propria, the layer of tissue that maintains structural support and functional integrity of the vaginal tissues. It is thought that this mechanism improves the ability to compress the urethra and control urine.

Improved Vulvovaginal Atrophy

Vaginal or vulva dryness, discharge, itching, bleeding during or after intercourse, and dyspareunia /pain during intercourse.

Women who have had diVa laser therapy have reported an increase of lubrication that appears to be the result of restoring the tissue to a more healthy state. The mechanism of action of the laser induces an increase in the vaginal mucosa or specifically the epithelial layer thickness of the vaginal wall tissue as well as an increase in collagen in the lamina propria. The lamina propria is the layer that has a rich supply of blood vessels, which ultimately feeds the epithelial layer. When the level of estrogen is less, this causes a poor blood flow to tissues. Besides thickening the epithelium tissue layer, the laser induces the activity of producing fibroblasts of collagen and increases vascularity in the superficial lamina propria causing small vessels to be more stented (open). The synergy of these actions improves the state of the tissue.

Increased Vaginal Lubrication

A lack of vaginal lubrication in response to sexual stimulation or chronic vaginal dryness may have an underlying cause. diVa can help.

Women have reported an increase in lubrication after having diVa laser therapy. The mechanism of action of the laser that increases lubrication is thought to be a result of increased blood flow to the capillaries (small blood vessels) that feed the vaginal epithelium layer from the rich vascularity in the lamina propria. The capillaries are more stented (open). The lubrication consists of a vaginal fluid substance (transudate) that passes through the membrane of the epithelial layer from the blood outflow through the capillaries. This process assists in attaining or maintaining adequate lubrication in sexual arousal.

Stronger Orgasms

Difficulty with having an orgasm or sensation of arousal during intercourse or sexual activity.

The mechanism of action of the laser therapy addressing circulation is thought to be a result of increased blood flow to the capillaries (small blood vessels) that feed the vaginal epithelium layer from the rich vascularity in the lamina propria. The capillaries are more stented (open). The increased vascularity documented in histology analysis suggests that the blood flow to tissues may explain the increased intensity of orgasm.

Reduced Pain During Sex

Dyspareunia / Pain during intercourse are classified as pain during entry or deep penetration.

diVa laser therapy has shown improvement of this condition. The mechanism of action of the laser therapy has demonstrated an increase in the epithelial thickness of the vaginal mucosa tissue of the vaginal wall.

The thickening allows for a growth of a layer of squamous cells that are well suited for abrasion or sloughing off due to friction during sexual intercourse before the layer of basal membrane is exposed.

This layer of cells serves as an additional layer that decreases the amount of pain or discomfort. This mechanism in combination with increased lubrication creates a positive milieu for sexual activity.

Improved Vaginal Laxity

Vaginal laxity is a loosening or loss of elasticity of the skin and tissue in the vaginal area.

Women, whether pre or postmenopausal who have had diVa therapy demonstrated improvement in physician assessment of vaginal laxity as well as their own self-assessment. Partners of the women who participated in the study reported experiencing increased tightness in sexual intercourse. The mechanism of action of diVa laser therapy is the remodeling of vaginal connective tissue. Collagen and elastin synthesis begins with the laser initiating a wound response that creates active fibroblasts forming an increase of horizontal streaming of collagen, which suggests an increased tone of the vaginal wall.
