Here’s How the diVa Laser Can Help Your Vaginal Dryness

Vaginal dryness is one of the best kept secrets in women’s health. Though 19% of women before menopause and 50% after menopause struggle with vaginal dryness, few talk about it.

It turns out that only 4% of all women with vaginal dryness use any type of treatment to improve their symptoms, a number that’s especially surprising when you consider that vaginal dryness is the top cause of painful intercourse.

Vaginal dryness often occurs following hormonal changes, but that doesn’t mean you should accept it as a natural part of your life. At Gynecologic Surgery and Menopause Solutions, we have a safe, simple, nonsurgical solution: treatment with the innovative diVa® laser.

Hormone changes lead to vaginal dryness

Estrogen is a hard-working hormone that regulates many aspects of your health, maintaining your skin, blood vessels, bones, and many other systems. In your reproductive tract, it has a lot of responsibilities, and one is keeping your vaginal lining healthy.

Your estrogen levels can temporarily drop or fluctuate for any number of reasons, and every time they decline, you’re at risk for vaginal dryness — at least until the hormone returns to normal levels.

The most dramatic change occurs when estrogen plummets at menopause. This permanent loss of estrogen leads to vaginal atrophy, a condition in which your vaginal lining becomes thin and loses moisture, strength, and elasticity. Your vaginal tissues become more fragile and easily damaged.

The combination of vaginal dryness, loss of lubrication, and fragility makes sex painful and often leads to bleeding after intercourse. Vaginal dryness can be so severe that women stop having sex and resign themselves to putting up with the problem. But this is one problem that’s easy to fix without medication or surgery thanks to the diVa laser.

How the diVa laser treats vaginal dryness

The diVa laser is a revolutionary treatment that relieves vaginal dryness by restoring the structure of vaginal tissues. Using a probe that fits comfortably in your vagina, we activate the device, and it sends radiofrequency energy into the vaginal walls.

The radiofrequency energy passes through the surface without harming the tissues. As it reaches below the surface, heat activates cellular activity. What happens as a result? 

The vaginal lining thickens, bringing a better supply of blood vessels and lubrication. Additionally, collagen production improves, which in turn restores strength and resilience to vaginal tissues. As a result, your vaginal dryness disappears, and you can return to a satisfying sex life. 

Treatment is short and pain-free

You may imagine that a laser treatment might be uncomfortable, but it isn’t. You may feel slight pressure against your vaginal wall, but otherwise, the procedure is so comfortable that you won’t even need a topical anesthetic.

Your diVa treatment only takes three to five minutes. That isn’t a typo. It truly only takes a few minutes for the laser to evenly deliver radiofrequency treatment to the entire vaginal lining. And afterward, you can get back to your normal daily routine.

You may notice an improvement after one treatment. However, many women need two to three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart to achieve the best results. Once your vaginal tissues are restored, you only need a single treatment every 6-12 months to maintain healthy, strong tissues.

There’s no need for you to put up with vaginal dryness and painful intercourse when treatment with the diVa laser is available. Call Gynecologic Surgery and Menopause Solutions, or use the online scheduler to learn more about how diVa can help relieve your vaginal dryness.
