Nowadays, more and more women are searching for ways to rejuvenate their genital area that has been causing them problems like urinary incontinence, discomfort, pain during sex, or feeling embarrassed about their appearance. With vaginal rejuvenation options becoming more and more popular, new technological advancements are hitting the market more frequently. One of these is the diVa™ laser by Sciton®.
Many women who are dealing with vaginal tissue concerns can feel embarrassed and uncomfortable. diVa helps to restore vaginal tissue and improve sexual health. The diVa laser vaginal therapy can help patients who are dealing with vaginal dryness, menopause, painful intercourse, incontinence, and even difficulty in orgasm. This is a quick, non-invasive, non-surgical, and non-hormonal procedure that can be done in-office at Partington Plastic Surgery.
Traditionally, vaginal rejuvenation techniques have used incisions to get rid of excess tissue, or hormonal treatments to help improve vaginal tissue. These types of methods can have undesirable side effects including scars, infection, bleeding, and pain. At Partington Plastic Surgery, we opt to use advanced techniques that are effective and have minimal side effects. The diVa laser is one of the ways we offer our patients effective treatment without the risk of traditional methods.
The diVa laser treatment utilizes Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) technology. It uses a disposable dilator on top of the laser device. This allows this treatment to be completely safe of the patient as there is no chance of cross-contamination. The dilator will be inserted into the vaginal canal and remain stationary during the procedure. Its ergonomic design makes for smooth insertion and procedure. The dilator expands the vaginal tissue. During treatment, the device will deliver dual wavelengths while rotating within the dilator. The diVa system uses an automated system to deliver highly effective treatment. This treatment in total only takes about 5 minutes. It can be customized to suit your specific comfort level.
After your diVa treatment, you will notice that there are increased tightness and improved lubrication in the vagina which helps you to feel more comfortable. One major benefit of this method is that there is no downtime. You can return to work and normal activities immediately following this treatment. For more details on the diVa therapy, click here.

Reviews You Can Trust
…Christel and all the surgery staff are all amazing. I was nervous to have my surgery and had many hoops to jump through to get it because of some medical issues I have. They were so patient with me and my doctors and so kind and helped me all along the way. They seriously care about their patients. They respond quickly to calls and emails and do whatever YOU need to feel 100% comfortable. I truly had the best experience…
