You work out to tighten and tone your arms, abdomen, thighs, and other muscles. As you’ve gotten older, you may be becoming aware of other muscles that could benefit from exercise. The pelvic floor muscles, as well as your labia and vaginal tissue, all change over time. Some can be toned using Kegel exercises, but, honestly, we know very few people who can actually do Kegels right and consistently enough to get results. If you’ve noticed that you don’t feel comfortable laughing freely, running with the kids or grandkids, and doing other activities that were once no problem at all, you deserve to feel like a Diva. At the Vaginal Rejuvenation Center of Austin, Dr. Walden and our experienced team can help you determine the best way to go about reclaiming your old self through personalized treatment.
What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
A treatment that improves the pelvic floor, labia, or vaginal lining or canal is considered vaginal rejuvenation. There are numerous ways in which intimate health may change over time, so we have multiple ways to approach different concerns. Vaginal rejuvenation used to refer to vaginoplasty, a surgical procedure that tightens severely loose tissue. Today, it may refer to both surgical and non-surgical treatments. The diVa treatment is a non-surgical modality that has been performed over 10,000 times since its development. These treatments are designed to restore lubrication, tighten the vaginal canal, and boost the production of collagen and production for an improved vaginal lining.
What is a diVa Rejuvenation?
You may have heard of vaginal rejuvenation using radiofrequency energy. ThermiVa is an example of this therapeutic treatment. The diVa process involves advanced laser technology developed by Sciton, a leader in the field of aesthetic lasers. Using hybrid fractional laser technology, diVa treatments are intended to improve both function and overall vaginal health. This treatment is designed to address concerns including the loss of sensitivity, vaginal laxity, diminished lubrication, and pelvic floor function. By restoring lubrication alone, diVa can reduce the risk of urinary tract infections and vaginosis caused by dryness.
We know what you may be thinking. Laser treatment for the vagina must be painful! In addition to being built for efficacy, diVa is also designed for safety and comfort. To ensure that your treatment is as pain-free as possible, your provider may apply a topical numbing cream before your procedure. During the treatment, the device delivers both ablative and non-ablative laser energy. This means that it will heat surface tissue as well as deeper layers of tissue, where collagen and elastin are made. The process takes less than 5 minutes if you do not receive a local anesthetic (if you do, your appointment may last about 45 minutes). As the energy is absorbed, you may feel a warming sensation in the vaginal canal. According to previous patients, this is usually very tolerable. The High Precision Automation built into the device ensures the delivery of uniform energy across the treatment area. After treatment, you can immediately go about your day as usual.
