What is the diVa ™ treatment?
diVa ™ is the first and only revolutionary Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) for vaginal health. A Hybrid Fractional Laser combines two wavelengths penetrating at different depths to allow for a customized treatment based on an individual’s needs. The first wavelength of the laser is used for precise ablation to resurface the vaginal tissue, increasing vaginal lubrication and decreasing pain during intercourse. The second wavelength is used to heat up collagen in the deep layer of the tissue to: (1) increase vaginal tightness, elasticity, and sensation; and (2) improve urinary control.
We are proud to be the ONLY diVa provider in the Greater Cincinnati Area!

How is diVa Different than Other Vaginal Laser Therapies?
- It utilizes the world’s first and only Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) for Laser Vaginal Therapy, which allows us to customize treatments for clients’ specific needs.
- It uses the only High Precision Automated Handpiece that automatically rotates 360 degrees, ensuring full coverage of the vaginal canal. This minimizes user error compared to other services that require manual manipulation of the handpiece. This automation also turns diVa into a 3-5 minute procedure vs. 30-40 minutes with other services on the market.
- It utilizes a hygienic disposable Strengthened Quartz Dilator ensuring comfort and no cross contamination between patients.
What Does the Treatment Feel Like?
A topical numbing cream may be applied to increase patient comfort. Our certified medical provider will then insert a quartz dilator into the vagina which will cause a sensation of pressure against the vaginal wall. The dilator is used to smooth the vaginal rugae, ensuring full coverage of the treatment area. Next, the HFL technology is used to resurface the vaginal tissue, which may cause a feeling of warmth and/or minimal discomfort.
How Long Does One Treatment Take?
Each treatment takes 3 to 5 minutes to treat the full length of the vaginal canal.
How Many Treatments are Recommended?
Initially, a series of 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart is recommended. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 6-12 months.
What Should I Expect After the Treatment? How Long Will it Take to Recover?
No downtime is required after having a diVa treatment, so clients can immediately return to their daily routine. Discharge, spotting, or mild cramping may occur and typically subsides within 24-48 hours. Some clients may experience temporarily increased sensitivity near the vaginal opening. Sexual intercourse, douching, and inserting tampons should be avoided for 48 hours.
Am I Able to Have Other Laser or Light Treatments?
Yes, the most common treatment done in conjunction with diVa is diVa Tyte™. diVaTyte is a non-invasive, no downtime, aesthetic procedure that uses light to heat the deep layer in targeted structures of the vulva (external structures surrounding the vagina). The body’s repair response is activated to make and remodel collagen, improving the vagina’s external appearance and tightening the vaginal opening and vaginal folds.
Am I a Candidate?
Women of all ages can benefit from the non-surgical rejuvenation diVa treatments, because the vagina changes with age just like every other body part.
- Women in their 20s or those who haven’t had children yet can benefit from diVa vaginal tissue rejuvenation treatments for enhanced sexual function and better orgasms.
- Women in their 30s and 40s may be candidates due to the effects of childbirth, which stretches the vaginal tissue. Repeated childbirths may prohibit the vaginal tissue from returning to its’ pre-childbirth state. This stretching diminishes vaginal health and affects surrounding tissue, such as the perineum (the area between the vagina and anus). In addition, women who had an episiotomy (a surgical incision in the perineum made to enlarge the vaginal opening prior to delivery) may be ideal candidates for diVa because the scar tissue that forms can often lead to painful or uncomfortable intercourse.
- Women in their 40s, 50s, and 60s may have decreased estrogen production in the ovaries if they’ve experienced menopause, a hysterectomy, or chemotherapy. A lack of estrogen results in thin, dry, and even inflamed vaginal walls. diVa decreases this vaginal discomfort by repairing and tightening vaginal tissues and increasing lubrication.
Some women are not eligible to have diVa treatments. Absolute recommendations against having a diVa treatment include:
- Wound healing issue
- Active yeast, bacterial or viral infection of the vagina, vulva, or pelvis.
Relative recommendations against having a diVa treatment, which require you to speak with your physician first include:
- Urinary Tract Infections
- Recent vaginal surgery
- Severe vaginal atrophy (thinning, drying, or inflammation of the vagina)
- Moderate to severe pelvic organ prolapse
- Undiagnosed pelvic pain or dyspareunia (pain during intercourse)
- Rectovaginal or vesicovaginal fistula
