diVa® is a quick, convenient, in-office, minimal downtime solution for women’s gynecological and genitourinary/urology health. Major life events like childbirth and menopause can cause changes in vaginal health. Excessive stretching of the vaginal tissue commonly happens from childbirth. Vaginal tissue may not fully recover to its pre-pregnancy state and through aging may lead to pelvic floor disorders. Menopause symptoms such as dryness, thinning and inflammation of the vaginal walls, and painful sex often lead women to seek out quality of life solutions. diVa helps give women control over their bodies again, empowering those treated to be as active as they like. With diVa, women feel more confident to return to the same level of athletic and intimate activity.
The diVa laser vaginal therapy treatment creates outcomes based on the aggressiveness of the treatment taking into account your gynecologic concerns, the health of your vaginal mucosa and your individual healing ability. Due to this, patient response can vary after a treatment. Erythema (redness) and possibly edema (swelling) are the desired responses within a few minutes after completion of the procedure. The degree of the responses and length of healing time will increase with the depth and coverage of the procedure.
Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN)
Urethral and ureteral tumors
Superficial bladder tumors
Invasive bladder carcinomas
Lesions of the external genitalia
Bladder neck obstructions
A pregnancy test is required the day of treatment
A pelvic examine will be done to assess vaginal tissue day of treatment
If any active vaginal infection is going on- please defer your treatment
Patients with a history of Herpes should be taking antiviral medications (valtrex) for 5 days starting on the day prior to treatment
To decrease the risk of bruising/ bleeding, we recommend avoiding the following for 3 days prior to your treatment (unless medically contraindicated):
Herbal supplements: Vitamin E, St. John’s Wort, Garlic, Ginkgo, Ginseng
Any supplements or medication that increases the chances of blood thinning
Spotting may occur. This can last for a few hours – 12 hours depending on the treatment depth. Immediately after treatment, you will be given a pad to wear.
Pinkish colored discharge may occur. This can last for a few hours–72 hours depending on the treatment depth.
The treatment area may be extremely warm for 12-24 hours after the treatment. Cold compresses or ice packs may provide comfort during this time.
Immediately after treatment, swelling is common and expected. Use of a cold compress or ice pack help relieve the swelling.
If an antiviral (especially for herpes hx) was prescribed for you, continue to take as directed.
You may return to your normal daily routine, including bathing or showering.
You should refrain from sexual intercourse, vaginal penetration, douching or use of tampons for up to 48 hours or until spotting or discharge has stopped.
Some patients experience sunburn or chaffed sensation for a few days. A thin layer application of Aquaphor can alleviate this sensation.
Some patients experience mild cramping up to 24-48 hours. Post treatment discomfort may be relieved by over the counter oral pain relievers; i.e. Extra Strength Tylenol or prescribed pain medication if ordered by the physician.
Itching may be experienced during the healing phase and is completely normal. Oral Benadryl or other antihistamine may help itching (Benadryl may cause drowsiness). DO NOT scratch the treated area as scarring complications can occur.
When showering in the next few days, it is recommended to avoid getting shampoo or harsh cleansers directly on the treated area.
Gentle use of bath tissue is recommended to reduce any sensitivity to the area.

DiVa is the only laser that uses a disposable Strengthened Quartz Dilator (SQD). Each DiVa tip is single use, provides a protective barrier between the client and the laser. The DiVa treatment allows for customized settings for your individual needs (scars from tearing during vaginal birth, etc) and is an automated treatment that leaves little to no room for human error. The entire treatment takes 3-5 minutes!
You will see initial results within a few weeks following diVa treatment. The tissue needs time to heal and strengthen to improve laxity, lubrication,and leakage. After your initial series, results should last years to come.
An initial series of 3 treatments 4-6 weeks apart is typically recommended for the most result and improvement in laxity, lubrication, and leakage. After this maintenance is 1-2 treatments a year. Your provider will discuss and customize a treatment for your individual needs.
