A Woman's Vaginal Health: A Comparison of the diVa and O-Shot Treatments

vaginal-problems-diVa-o-shot-treatments-matrixA woman’s vaginal health is often overlooked, yet it is a key component to her sense of self-confidence, well-being, and sensuality.

Unfortunately, women’s bodies go through a host of traumatic events that can seriously undermine that vaginal health. Childbirth, menopause, and even aging can cause changes that make sex painful, and that can seriously diminish a woman’s enjoyment of sexual intimacy.

Every woman deserves to enjoy a healthy and vibrant sex life. Fortunately, the O-Shot and diVa treatment can help you do just that. These non-surgical rejuvenation procedures provide long-lasting, effective relief for issues such as:

  • Stretched, thin vaginal tissue
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Decreased ability to reach orgasm
  • Pain during intercourse

But how do you know if these treatments are right for you? With so many options out there, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and not know where to begin.

We’ve put together a comparison of both the diVa and the O-Shot treatments to illustrate the benefits of each and help you to discern if one of these treatments might be right for you.

How The O-Shot & diVa Treatment Work

diVa is a revolutionary laser resurfacing procedure that helps to improve vaginal tissues. Using ablative and non-ablative wavelengths, the laser works to cleanse tissue of old, damaged cells. It is completely safe and effective, and the process takes an average of three to five minutes.

The O-Shot is an injection of platelets rich plasma (PRP) – derived from your blood – into the vaginal tissue. PRP uses your body’s own platelets to stimulate stem cells and grow healthy vaginal tissue to replace old or damaged tissue.

The Problems Addressed By These Treatments

The diVa treatment addresses:

  • Vaginal laxity
  • Hormone fluctuations
  • Stretched or thin vaginal tissue
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Painful intercourse

The O-Shot treatment addresses many issues such as:

  • Decreased libido
  • Stress-related urinary incontinence
  • Decreased ability to orgasm
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Chronic pain from childbirth trauma, such as scarring
  • Painful intercourse

How Long Do The Treatments Take?

The diVa process takes on average of three to five minutes.

The O-Shot procedure typically takes less than 10 minutes.

How Often Are Treatments Needed?

On average, women see best results when they get between one to three diVa treatments, spaced every four to six weeks apart. These are generally followed up with a maintenance treatment every 12 months.

The O-Shot is a single treatment and, while results vary from woman to woman, can last anywhere from six months to two years.

What Are The Benefits of These Treatments?

The diVa treatment includes benefits such as:

  • Repair damaged tissue
  • Tighten stretched skin
  • Increased natural lubrication
  • Improved quality and frequency of orgasms
  • Decreased pain during intercourse

The O-Shot benefits:

  • Increased natural lubrication
  • Increase in sexual desire
  • Increased ability to experience a vaginal orgasm
  • Increased frequency in orgasms
  • Decreased pain during intercourse
  • Decreased urinary incontinence

Who Do These Treatments Benefit Most?

The diVa treatment is ideal for women who have gone through childbirth, are experiencing menopause, or are interested in a resurfacing treatment that can improve the elasticity of their vaginal tissue and the quality of their sex life.

The O-Shot treatment is ideal for any woman suffering from urinary stress incontinence and/or sexual dysfunction such as vaginal dryness, difficulty reaching orgasm, and painful intercourse.

Find Your Way Back To Better Vaginal Health And Better Intimacy

Your vaginal health is important for participating in and maintaining healthy, intimate relationships. A satisfying sex life can also be a key player in your self-esteem and confidence. Don’t shortchange yourself by ‘settling’ for no sex, or worse, painful sex.
