How Many diVa™ Laser Treatments Are Necessary?

Vaginal health is not a subject we talk about often. However, vaginal health is hard to ignore when it  impacts your quality of life and interferes with your relationships. It’s important to your overall health and wellbeing to feel confident with all areas of your body, including your vagina.

Vaginal rejuvenation with the diVa vaginal laser therapy can help restore the feel and appearance of your intimate areas following childbirth or menopause. But how many diVa laser treatments are necessary to achieve your optimal results?

Here, the experts at Marmur Medical answer your questions about how many diVa laser treatments you may need to improve your vaginal symptoms associated with menopause or stemming from childbirth.

What Is diVa Vaginal Rejuvenation?

For women struggling with vaginal dryness, skin laxity, pelvic floor disorders, inflammation, low libido, urinary leakage and more, diVa laser offers a unique solution. Due to the aging process or post-pregnancy and childbirth concerns, over 53% of women experience one or more of these symptoms. DiVa laser therapy comfortably and discreetly addresses women’s most intimate challenges, restoring comfort, sensuality, self-assurance, and vitality. Studies show a diVa treatment success rate of 86% of women experiencing improved overall symptoms.

DiVa is a non-hormonal and non-surgical laser treatment that safely, effectively, and quickly resurfaces the vaginal wall, encouraging healthy tissue production. The laser heats the tissue layers to promote healthy cellular activity and stimulate collagen and elastin production.

The innovative technology of the diVa laser therapy system provides enhanced results with a faster recovery and less downtime, providing a better overall experience.

Generally, diVa laser benefits include:

  • Significantly improves vaginal function and feel
  • Restores vaginal comfort
  • Revives sexual drive and satisfaction
  • A highly versatile procedure
  • Works well with PRP injections for lubrication and sensation
  • diVa is the first hybrid fractional laser
  • Requires minimal to no downtime
  • A non-surgical treatment with no scarring
  • An efficient, in-office procedure
  • Works quickly with minimal treatment sessions

DiVa’s pre-treatment considerations include that patients should:

  • Be non-smokers, or willing to quit before treatment
  • Be generally healthy
  • Not be pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Understand the potential risks

How Is diVa Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Administered?

To ensure utmost hygiene, the diVa laser probe is covered by a single-use, protective applicator. If you are concerned about discomfort, a topical anesthetic may be applied.

During your diVa session, you may feel slight pressure or some sensitivity at the opening of the vagina or the vaginal walls. The laser probe is guided through the vaginal canal, allowing the laser to deliver the correct pulses to address multiple layers of tissue. Each session takes approximately five to ten minutes.

Are Multiple diVa Treatments Necessary for Optimal Results?

For optimal diVa session results, we recommend a series of three treatments. While some patients may begin experiencing noticeable improvement following one procedure, it may take several weeks for collagen and elastin production to make a difference in overall vaginal health.

Following your initial treatment series, you may require annual maintenance sessions to ensure the longevity of your optimal diVa treatment results.

Your diVa treatment cost will vary based on your unique needs and number of sessions required to achieve your goals.

What Factors Determine the Number of diVa Laser Treatments Needed?

Generally, three quick sessions are recommended, with each diVa treatment duration being 10 to 15 minutes. However, your dermatologist, urogynecologist, or OB/GYN may suggest further diVa laser procedures to achieve your desired results based on the condition of your vaginal skin.

Certain factors may affect vaginal atrophy, or the breakdown of vaginal skin and tissues, including:

  • Vaginal Childbirth
  • Menopause
  • Breastfeeding
  • Hysterectomy
  • Chemotherapy

Your provider will take all of these into consideration when determining the optimal number of diVa treatments for you.

What Is the Recommended Number of diVa Laser Treatments?

The typical recommended number of diVa treatments is three. However, depending on the condition of the skin, patient needs, or specialist recommendations, that number may vary. Each diVa laser vaginal rejuvenation session is quick, lasting only three to five minutes. DiVa treatment frequency is recommended at four to six weeks apart, with recommended annual maintenance treatments.

How Long Does It Take to See Results After diVa Laser Treatment?

DiVa laser technology works by stimulating collagen production. It may take time for collagen and elastin levels to increase and make a difference in skin’s quality. However, many patients express they’ve experienced noticeable improvements following one diVa laser session.

Each woman will respond differently to diVa laser treatment. Full results are typically seen four months following your final session. Results last anywhere from 9 to 18 months following the initial series of treatments. Annual maintenance treatments safely and effectively extend your long-lasting results.

Can I Achieve Desired Results with Fewer diVa Laser Sessions?

As diVa laser vaginal therapy encourages collagen production, many patients do experience noticeable improvements a few weeks after their first session as tissue regenerates. However, it’s recommended to complete the ideal course of three diVa laser treatments, scheduled four to six weeks apart, to achieve optimal results. Women will notice continued improvements after each treatment. Annual maintenance sessions are recommended to prolong results.

Are Additional diVa Treatments Recommended for Maintenance?

Although your initial series of three diVa sessions will provide long-lasting results, maintenance treatments are recommended. To ensure your continued results and the overall health of your rejuvenated vaginal tissues, we recommend an annual maintenance treatment.

Is There a Minimum or Maximum Limit for diVa Laser Sessions?

Each woman will have unique needs regarding vaginal rejuvenation. While the typical recommended number of diVa sessions is three, based on the specific needs or recommendations by specialists, such as a urogynecologist or an OB/GYN, the number may vary. Treatments are scheduled four to six weeks apart with an annual follow-up session to ensure efficacy. Ultimately, the minimum number of required diVa treatments for you will be determined by your provider.

What Are the Advantages of Undergoing Multiple diVa Laser Treatments?

While many patients begin experiencing the diVa laser effectiveness and positive results after one treatment, it pays to complete the series of treatments for optimal vaginal rejuvenation as you will continue seeing improvements after each treatment.

Specifically, the advantages of undergoing multiple diVa laser treatments include:

  • Long-lasting results that improve your quality of life
  • Restored comfort and confidence during intimacy
  • Enhanced vaginal health, including tighter vaginal walls, sensitivity, and sexual satisfaction
  • Improved stress incontinence
  • Reduced vaginal dryness associated with menopause
