The female genitals go through profound changes at various stages of life – after childbirth, during menopause and even following such events as a hysterectomy or chemotherapy – that can lead to diminished vaginal health and function. Laser vaginal rejuvenation (LVR) aims to treat these issues by repairing and restoring the vaginal canal and surrounding tissue that may have suffered damage or change following any of the milestones mentioned above. And that’s great news – but not all LVR procedures are created equal.
The procedure preferred and offered by the board-certified experts at 8 West Clinic in Vancouver is a technological innovation created by world-renowned medical laser maker Sciton called diVa Laser Vaginal Therapy. This resurfacing laser includes unique HPA (high precision automation) technology to ensure the safest and best treatment outcome, by allowing full customization based on your age, symptoms and desired results.
This three-to-four-minute procedure performed in-office and without sedation, involves the insertion of the ergonomically designed device into the vagina, where the single-use strengthened quartz dilator remains stationary to expand and flatten the vaginal tissue using revolutionary hybrid laser technology, which delivers two laser therapies at once for a combined synergistic effect. The first laser deeply resurfaces the layers of the vaginal wall, replacing it with brand-new healthy tissue. The second laser heats the layers of the tissue where collagen exists.
Because the laser spins inside of the device, patients do not feel any movement whatsoever, resulting in a far more comfortable experience. As the hand-piece is rotated through the treatment area, pulses are delivered through a new section of quartz to ensure laser efficiency. The result: the quality of the vaginal tissue is significantly improved, and patients are left feeling revitalized (in that years-younger way we’re all looking for) with a renewed sense of self-confidence. There’s very little downtime; you can return to your regular daily routine immediately with minimal to no discharge, spotting or discomfort (just be sure to avoid sexual intercourse for at least 48 hours). Most patients can achieve optimal results with just three diVa treatments.
When it comes to LVR, there are other options available. However, as mentioned earlier, diVa Laser Vaginal Therapy really can be considered the cream of the crop. Other procedures take more time to perform, may result in more discomfort and may include more downtime or after-effects than the sleek, comfortable and precise diVa device. The superior results, too, speak for themselves.
